In this introduction blog I touch base on the mental disorders I was diagnosed with and how I plan on diving deeper into each one. My diagnosis's are PTSD, ADHD & BPD. These are the mental illnesses I have been diagnosed with over the past 15 years. First came post traumatic stress disorder which resulted from being physically and emotionally abused for the majority of my childhood. Second came attention deficit hyperactivity disorder which I formed at a young age and has continued with me into my adult life. Lastly, what they believe stemmed from that was borderline personality disorder. A disorder that disables individuals from regulating their emotions like others. All of these disorders have affected my life in unique and challenging ways and I plan on diving into each one of them in depth. The goal being to help others understand what it is like to live with mental illnesses as well as continue to promote transparency and openness regarding these topics. If someone you know could benefit from hearing me blog about my disorders & mental health in general, please share this post with them.
