I’m Kay, I’m a vegan, cat lover and a sufferer of mental illness. I’ve been struggling with my mental health since 2011 and have unfortunately gotten worse as the years have progressed.
I’m just like other people, I’ve been to school, college, I’ve even given university a go. I have friends, go out to exciting places like Thorpe Park and have had jobs. But I have an extra difficulty to live with that affects even the simplest things in my life.
I’ve been through several diagnoses over the years and my needs are a bit more complex than just depression, but my current ones as of October 2016 are:
- Emotionally unstable personality disorder (otherwise known as borderline personality disorder)
- Bipolar disorder with psychosis
- Social Anxiety
- Obsessive compulsive disorder
As the person that lives with these conditions I am within my means to say things can get a little *crazy* sometimes. This blog is about how I live with my mental illnesses.
