My name on here sums me up fairly well.
I’m a crazy cat lady. Both in that I suffer from mental illness and in that I am mad about cats.
I am the proud indentured servant to 4 amazing (if I do say so) moggies; Bagheera, Toothless, Po and Gemma. I’ve had cats ever since I can remember and can’t imagine not having felines in my life. I’m pretty sure I’ve fully converted my husband into a crazy cat man, but he is resisting that 5th feline!
Mental health has been an issue for me for as long as I can remember, which isn’t actually all that long, my pre-secondary school days are quite hazy. I know that I was depressed from about 11, worse once the hormones kicked in. Dealt with a variety of medications, therapy, self-harm and suicide. Current diagnosis is likely borderline personality disorder, seasonal affective disorder, possible OCD and possibly a hormonal aspect as well. *joy*. Currently doing my best on anti-depressants and cognitive behavioural therapy. Spent years wallowing in my mental health, rejoicing in my mental health, being angry at my mental health. Now I would like to try just living with my mental health, not despite it, not because of it, just with it.
Think that’s about all I have the energy for now. I aim to come back to this page and say a little bit more about myself.
