Daily fight

I make internal decisions daily that could either cause a relapse or another step in recovery. Between being aware of meals because of an eating disorder or forcing myself to sleep to avoid hypomania; these and others are conscious decisions I have to make every day. Some people may not have to fight intrusive thoughts, but I do and that’s ok. I’ve hit rock bottom multiple times but I will keep fighting because I know I’ve survived for a reason.


  1. I do agree with this, but I also try to make some positive wellness strategies such a part of my routine that I don’t ALWAYS have to think about my illness “I have to do this to stay well, I have to do that.” It can be liberating to have some days when I feel just like me. A woman. Not a woman with a mental illness.
