A positive update

Hi friends,

Some of you may remember how a few months ago I was in a VERY dark place and I spent 6months in very intense mental health treatment programs…well…I’m now 3months out of treatment!!! I’m also 63 days self harm free! For the first time in a long time, I feel positive and hopeful. Yes, life is still hard and the season I’m walking through is by far one of the roughest when it comes to grieving.

But let’s celebrate my progress! The dark stuff can be another post another day.

Oh, also 268 days and counting since my last inpatient/hospitalization!

I’m working with a OCD therapist and trauma therapist to continue to work on several things but I’m doing pretty great. Wanted to share that with yall and thank you for encouraging me when things sucked. :heart:

You’re absolutely amazing, @TheeCrazyBethy. This is so wonderful. Not only you’ve been so brave by sharing your struggles, asking for help and accepting to receive it. But now you’re also owning your healing even more by having control over your self-harm. Grief at first is such a chaotic storm during which our deepest cracks and wounds can be reactivated suddenly. It’s so good to hear that you are now going through a different chapter of it. It can never be perfect - life is what it is -, but it makes such a big difference to feel in control again and find a little more peace.

You’ve been incredibly strong in making sure that you would keep being supported through this painful time. We’re all very proud of you. :hrtlegolove:

Oh Bethy,

This makes me so happy. Our world need more of these kinds of things. I am so proud of you. Keep on being hopeful. You are amazing. Thank you for sharing! You got this!

You are worthy. You are valid. You are strong. You are enough. You matter.
