So it seems as if my month of positivity has come to an end. Yesterday was a month since my move-in and while it definitely had it’s ups and downs, I was overall incredibly happy. But, I have had a significant increase in episodes in these last couple of days and it has started to bring me down a bit. HOWEVER!!! I am NOT going to let my illness take me down again. I have already reached out to my doctors back at home to be proactive about monitoring my medications, my treatments, my symptoms. I truly want to be here at my college which I love with literally all my heart. I am happier here than I’ve been anywhere else and I am also stronger and healthier than I’ve been in all my life. I vowed to take care of myself. “Recovery” for me unfortunately does not involve my disorders resolving themselves; they are chronic and incurable. My recovery consists of being in the best possible mindset about them and utilizing coping mechanisms as much as I can. It’s about being able to help myself without depending on someone else for everything. I can do this.
