Hi there, thanks for visiting my site, below is a little bit about it before you jump into the deep end…
My name is Jade… in case you couldn’t guess. I started writing my blogs as a way to let out some of the pain so I could feel better. I also wanted other people to know that it is ok to talk about mental illness as for so many, it doesn’t feel natural.
Once I started sharing openly on this blog, I received countless messages from friends, family and strangers, telling me how much reading my story has helped them – either with their own battle, or to support a loved one. I am not a professional, I still come across new hurdles all the time, I am still healing myself. I just hope that I can continue to help others to understand or deal with their mental illness.
I write when I feel the need to, so my posts can be very raw and are almost always sprinkled with swearing, don’t say I didn’t warn you! If you read through my posts from start to finish, it shows just how much I have grown. There have been some gaps in writing, for varying reasons so if I go a bit MIA on the blog front, just know that I am fighting away in the background.
I have an amazing support network, I am incredibly lucky, however, I know that there are some people out there who don’t, so let these posts be your light in the dark. Let them inspire you as others have inspired me, to not let mental illness stop you from having a wonderful life. You are not alone, you can be anything you want to be, you can recover and discover new things about yourself every day.
Thanks for reading and stay strong warriors!
