Its been 4 years

I forgot to write about this last week but, on 26th April, It was four years since I’d been admitted to the psych hospital.
Four years! Wow!
I cant quite believe it! I never thought I’d see a day where I’d be hospital free for so long! To say I am proud is an understatement.
I am so grateful for the support that I have. Every day I count my blessings. My team are amazing. Without them I would not be where I am today.
Has it been hard? Hell yes. It still is hard. But I keep going, keep trying, I don’t wanna go back to where I was a few years ago, constantly in crisis, and in and out of the hospital every couple of months.
Do I still feel bad? Yes, I do. A lot of times I feel overwhelmed, anxious, dissociative, etc. But I have coping skills now that help me, and I try to use them when the overwhelm hits me and kicks my ass.
I think I’ve come a long way.
Tonight I feel a lot of pride. I feel proud of the person I’ve become. I thank god every day for my therapist, my psychiatrist, and my CPN!
And I thank god for all of my wonderful friends, who have supported me whenever I’ve needed it. Thank you! You are all amazing and I feel blessed to know each and every one of you!
