Old member new profile name
« on: October 17, 2020, 07:55:13 PM »
I used to be a very active member on this site  in crisis a lot. A few hospital admissions (emergency room)
Fast forward to now. Im training to be an occupational therapist at university. Have 3 children am engaged. I still struggle but I've managed to not self harm for 3 years now and its been 10 years since I was a regular self harmer. I also struggle with eating problems. This year I almost ended up on an eating disorder ward.
I wanted to share my story that even though my mental health problems remain I now live a life full of love, peace, sometimes angst and upset. But things can get better. This was a sanctuary for me at one point and I hope to support people as I was once supported

Also an old-timer under a new name. I'm really glad things are better for you. It sounds like you are doing really well despite things still being difficult sometimes.

And hope and grace were all I needed.

This isn't everything you are.
