When I was 16 years old, I lost my first boyfriend to suicide, I spiraled down to darkness: I went through depression and considered even ending my own life. My healing journey took a long time as in the beginning I didn’t even want to seek help, I was afraid to be labeled crazy and that almost cost my life.
Slowly I found my way out of the darkness, I found my way through the pain. Today I can say that I’ve learned to love myself and my life again. I feel strongly that I want to help others by sharing what I learnt during my journey. I have #NoStigmas.
Lately in the local mental health system, the trend has been to move away from rehabilitation towards simply medicating the clients to “control symptoms,” probably because of lack of funding. About the only funding source left these days is from the pharmaceutical companies pushing their prescriptions.
