This is actually my first post in a very long time. I have had issues since I was a young person. I had a very difficult time in high school, almost didn’t graduate. Then after a failed attempt at junior college I moved to Europe for a few months. I don’t blame that for my problems, it just didn’t help. Married young, still married, children and grandchildren. Through it all I have had extreme ups, bottomless lows, medication, self medication, wonderful therapists, bad insurance issues, there are so many more that I cant stand to list them all.
Over the time in my life I have come to realize that there are a lot of things that made me unhappy or feel depressed. I’m not sure if this was supposed to part of life or if I was different. I wanted to be happy and sometimes I was but a lot of times I was not.
I hope that people are able to find solutions to their mental health issues before they get old like me, so that they can enjoy life, but the things I went through taught me a lot.
