Life’s a bowl of cherries

13 May

I’m trying to figure out why I started this blog.  What do I want to write about?  Who do I want to read it?  I really don’t know.  I was blogging before but it probably wasn’t the most positive blog.  I guess I’m hoping to write a more positive, up beat blog.  Maybe someone will read it and take something from it.  Maybe my blog will put a smile on someone’s face.  I’ve been through so much in 37 years!  I’m a strong woman, a survivor.  I carry so much life experience.  I’ve been up and I’ve been down, way down.  But I got back up and continue to move forward.  I think I figured blogging would give me something to do.  I get bored easy and like to write.  I battle depression,  bipolar, anxiety and PTSD.  I’m living proof that you can do it!  You can get through mental illness and come out ok.  Sure, I have help, there is nothing wrong with asking or accepting help.  I have an amazing support system.  You can live life with mental illness, you just have to want to.  Ok, so this entry just turned into me standing on my mental illness soap box.  I am very passionate about my illness and want to help others any way I can.  I continue to educate myself and learn about mental illness constantly.  I’m not looking to be perfect, I just want to be ok.  Right now, I am ok.
