I just wanted to share a little more information about me.
I am a pretty simple person. I do not need or want a fancy a car, a fancy house or fancy things. I do like buying nice clothes because I love fashion. I actually have wanted to start a personal shopping business, because I love making people feel beautiful in what they are wearing, no matter what shape or size.
I was diagnosed with schizophrenia many years ago. Once I was diagnosed, I slowly began to speak openly. I have anxiety as well. And I am undiagnosed with driver’s obsessive compulsive disorder and undiagnosed with disordered eating, even though my counsellor is aware of both.
I do not like to judge people or talk badly about people. Maybe I did years ago, but I grew up. I only worry about my character now. I have no right to judge anyone else, that is not my job. I am only concerned about me and only me and my character and my body, whatever you do with your character and your body is not my business.
I am usually honest, sometimes that can get me into trouble. I tell people what I think, most of the time. I also try to be kind. Probably because I know how difficult this life can be. I do not want to make it worse for anyone. I try to be a good and kind person. I am far from perfect though, and make mistakes all of the time, but I hope I get points for really trying to be a good and kind person.
I used to be a competitive dancer. I loved dance and am starting to get back into it. I danced ballet, pointe, modern, jazz, lyrical and tap. I completed my full ballet and jazz exams. I loved to dance and hope I can gain the skill back. I am a dancer at heart and enjoy the joy that dance brings.
I will run forever. If you listen to me speak, I go into what I have done so far with races. Running, like dance, will forever be in my heart. I will be that ninety-year-old woman running in a race or dancing around the house.
I have been single for a very long time, and I will probably remain single. I love being on my own and the independence it brings. I actually love being single. Would I get into a relationship? Maybe. But you would really have to convince me.
I like to talk about mental illness and mental health. I have sometimes talked to people while standing in a line at the bank or when I go to a store. I talk about mental illness and mental health wherever I go, mostly because I know that the more we talk about mental illness and mental health, the more it just becomes like everything else we talk about.
I believe that everyone’s mental illness journey is very unique, as is their recovery. I share what worked for me, but I believe everyone has a unique journey and a unique recovery. I do believe everyone can recover, in their own amazing and unique way.
I have embraced my madness. Maybe because I could not see my life any other way.
I want to make this world a good place, for everyone, not just some.
I like my life. I like it a lot. I am happy. I am healthy. And I would not change it for a thing.
I will forever and I mean forever be grateful to God and the universe for a second chance at life.
There is a lot more about me, but this gives you a little more insight and I hope you find some peace and joy through my blog.
