Hi! My name is Kristina. I am starting this blog to share my story regarding anxiety and depression. I also hope to use my story to help others with similar problems.
I recently went to Sheppard Pratt for help with my anxiety and depression. This was a hard step for me. It meant I had to admit that I am not in control of my mental illness. I was ashamed of this step at first. I no longer feel this way because I have learned a lot about myself through my stay. I am a people please. I have obsessive thoughts. I ruminate. I isolate. I cut myself. I use other peoples validation to determine my feelings about myself. These are just a few of the things I have learned.
I am sharing this with you because it is part of my journey but also in hopes that it will inspire you to ask for help!
