I’M FINALLY BACK!!!

Well, I’m finally back after nearly three whole months without a blog update… 

And if I’m honest I wish I had a good explanation for my absence but it’s down to poor time management and making the most of every opportunity.

So what have I been up to?

  • Well as of friday I have been discharged from CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service) and transitioned to the Adult eating disorder team and CMHT (community mental health team)- which I will talk about in a later post.
  • I’ve been on the interview panel for CAMHS
  • Celebrated my 18th birthday by going out with my family, seeing bastille in the o2 thanks to my sister, having a house PARTY (which I never imagined would happen earlier this year) and just spending it with those closest to me.
  • I’ve been on my first night out, which after a lot of previous anxiety around situations involving any type of socialising or alcohol I can well an truely say I have fought through the worst of it and am now ACTUALLY ENJOYING MYSELF.
  • I have bought myself a little red car, ran the battery flat, had to be jump started at school and nearly drove down the motorway the wrong way. (pretty successful in my eyes)
  • Visited my Best Friend at Uni and stayed with her in Birmingham.
  • I’ve done a week of work experience at the Hospital in the cardiology department, watched a operation, and visited the children’s ward I was once on.
  • And now I have completed my first term of school, missing zero days and so far achieving my goal of making this year count. I have helped out in a place for students to go who struggle with the playground at break and lunch – which I really enjoy because it gives me the chance to use some of my experiences to help others.

The last few months have been filled with a lot of wonderful moments and considering I have significantly struggled with some aspects of my mental health recently I can well and truly say despite of it I have tried my best to keep going and participate in everything I possibly could.

“I think suffering from mental health has made me realise that good days give you happiness, bad days give you experience and the worst days give you a reason to get better”

  1. Welcome back. I have someone in my family who has struggled with the same issues as you have. It is a very real struggle. She came through it and is now a self sufficient adult with a two year old son. Keep on keeping on one day at a time. And thank you for stopping by my blog.
