Disclaimer: not everyone will have the same experience as I did.
This Friday will be my "1 year" since my hospitalization for suicide ideation, and the start to my mental health recovery. This week I am focusing on the importance of self care, and suicide prevention.
There are many things we don't talk about, or put out there out of fear and judgment from others. I'm choosing to be vocal, especially starting while I'm young.
I wanted to do a post dedicated to my experience, especially for those who ask "what was it like?" This doesn't sum up my experience, which is why I titled it 'random memories-"
I sound complain-y in these, but keep in mind..I didn't want nor choose to be there and it's uncomfortable being away from your usual things, routine. It is a different living situation.
Here are some little things that come to mind. It's weird what you remember.
Again- I am just days away from acknowledging my strength this past year.
More posts to come.
