I AM OKAY!


SO SORRY TO HAVE PUT YOU ALL THROUGH THINKING I WASN'T OKAY. BUT HERE IS THE THING. I THOUGHT I WASN'T OKAY TOO. BUT TURNS OUT I'M OKAY. I DON'T HAVE BIPOLAR DISORDER OR HAVE ANXIETY.

I know, that's a huge shock after thinking for so long that I had those things. Thank you for your wishes and prayers, love, and support through that hard time. Thankfully your prayers got me through everything and I am okay now.

Scary to say but I really did believe I had those things. My mother, however, was a true believer in me and kept telling me that the doctors were wrong. Mom's are the best. I didn't understand what she was trying to tell me all along until I heard the term corticosteroid-induced mania from the doctor.

Long story short the doctors were lazy and diagnosed me with bipolar disorder just so they could enroll me in the inpatient treatment center but it turns out I actually just went into a manic phase because of a medication the doctors gave me for an allergic reaction. If you didn't make the connection yet here is it really straight forward. I don't have bipolar disorder and I am 100% okay and me!

Can't thank you enough for all the blessings that everyone sent me! Thank you so much! I appreciate every one of you so so much! Praying for each one of you. *

*Will still be touching on topics of self-care and mental health on the blog. Do not fear, that is still an interest of mine.

  11. I am glad you quickly figured out that we are never our disorder. I have symptoms of ADD. I am not ADD. We may have symptoms of anxiety but we are not always anxious, even though we may feel it often. It can be debilitating but it is not who we are. I dare say the majority of people have mental health problems and symptoms in one way or another. Anyone under a lot of stress can experience trouble managing their symptoms and trouble can arise. The diagnosis is a way of categorizing groups of symptoms. It is beneficial and detrimental. However we are much more than a set of traits and symptoms. I am glad you are figuring yourself out. Much love.

    1. This brings up a good point! I agree with a lot of the topics and ideas you bring up! Everyone has a little bit of something which is okay! We should never be ashamed to admit we have symptoms or mental health issues for a matter of fact. <3
