I would like to say that “this blog is dedicated to improving mental health and creating a positive body image” but I know how that sounds. This blog is a project, it is a chance for me to do something with the +10 years of wellness tools I have learned from therapy, life lessons, and books. I don’t want to teach you how to be normal, I want to show you recovery from mental health challenges is possible and that you are still you despite having a diagnosis. I’m not a licensed professional, but a person living with the chronic challenges of a mental disorder and I think that’s qualifying enough to talk about these issues.
So what issues will we be talking about? Well, I’m glad you asked me-who-is-writing-this, the topics will include but not be limited to:
- Emotional wellness
- Positive body image
- The self vs. the diagnosis
- Mental wellness
- Recovery from diagnosis
I want to cover these topics, but through the lens of someone who happens to have a diagnosis, is queer, and also happens to be a person of color. I want you to know these facts because mental healthcare isn’t always as inclusive as you would expect, despite the diverse population that lives with varying disorders.
If you find this to be something worth reading or worth investing your time in then I thank you. If you would like to subscribe or get in touch then it would be appreciated.
