Coming out about my mental health
Jan 21, 2018
- I know this doesn't come as a shock to anybody but I have mental health problems and they're pretty severe. This blog is inspired by heatherlum and her top blog. I feel like this is something that needs to be said for my own good and the good of others. So here it is. I am aware that this doesnt address other mental health problems that selection people know about I'm just not ready to talk about those to other people
I have something called EDNOS. If you don't know, that stands for Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified. It is a very severe yet unknown eating disorder that people don't know about. Mortality rates estimates I've heard go up to 20-25%. It is very deadly and much harder to treat.
Also, I have anxiety and depression. I know that we hear about them so much that they sort of sound generous but they're serious. I nearly killed myself today because of these mental illnesses. Its a terrifying disease that affects way to many people in our society.
These things need to be talked about and unfortunately they're not. I can't speak for Heather but that's why I'm writing mine.
