So just a little recent history about me. I have suffered with severe anxiety and depression just about all my life. The past 2 years were real bad to the point I just shut down and disconnected. I couldn't take all the stress anymore so I just didn't give a shit. Sometimes I used drugs and alcohol to help numb myself, but mostly just abused my prescription pills.
Three weeks ago I had a mental breakdown. I took way more pills then I should have and washed them down with vodka, then I took a razor blade to my left forearm.
For the past 3 weeks I have been spending my days in a mental healthcare facility for 6 hours, then going straight to work for another 6. It sucks, but I have to work, I have 2 kids to feed and take care of. Tomorrow is my last day, and I'm nervous. But I've learned a lot, and I feel I've become a stronger person through all of this. I'm learning to love, protect and take care of me. I am still in recovery, and I have a long hard road ahead of me, but I know now I am going down the right road. =)
