Out of curiosity how long did it take you guys to understand your mental illness and fully accept it?
For me it was this year age 23 I realized I hurt pushed tons of people away ended up in a deep depression and hypomanic episode I felt alone but wanted to be as independent as possible so I stopped emotionally trying to talk about my own issues my enteral struggles
It took a entire mental breakdown to realize my meds might always be apart of my life I shouldn?t stop them because I think my future boyfriends or past wouldn?t accept I thought it was a automatic invitation that I?m crazy
It took a lot of emotional growth and mentality changes to realize I wasn?t happy from some of my own poor choices that lead to natural consequences such as not understanding all the possible risk when I stopped all my meds cold turkey I asked my psych to just stop giving scripts
I?m just wondering for others how long did it take for you too actually accept and understand that you have a mental Illness.
