My Story

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

Last night at Peer to Peer Class I told my story. My story of mental illness and where I have been. I know I would never be the person I am today, if it weren't for the struggles I have gone through. It is still hard to talk about yourself and all your trips to the hospital without feeling something. I was exhausted last night, but too keyed up to go right to sleep. I read for awhile and pondered my life. All the ups and downs. All the medication tried and all the talk therapy. It is all a part of my life. It is what makes up what I call "me." I am a better person for all those struggles for if doesn't know sorrow then how does one know joy? I know. That sounds trite. I am not meaning to sound trite. I am just expressing my feelings and pondering life. A good life. My life!

    I try to remind myself and others of this often; it helps me smile in the face of adversity, which makes me a happier person. And THAT I think is the key to life.

    You have a great attitude Angie. The trials and hardships in our lives makes us who we are. What would we ever learn and how would we ever become stronger if our lives were perfect? You are an awesome person and I wish you nothing but the best! emoticon
