Mental health issues? Here’s how to find a support system.

When I was hospitalized for depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts in 2019, I took classes on coping strategies, how to manage my conditions, and how to create a wellness plan to stay healthy. A big part of that plan involved building a support system.

I did not talk about my difficulties then. If I asked I would say I was fine, but I was in pain, lonely and overwhelmed. If you don’t tell people you’re hurting, it’s harder to get what you want. So after leaving the hospital I threw it all out. I blogged about my journey and told friends and family what was going on. It was freeing.

Opening up helped me stay accountable, which is hard for me because I don’t set boundaries.
