Today I took care of myself in a way that might lots of people might not need to. Today I woke up to get to an appt at 7am with my dietitian. I made this a priority to start my day because I'm leaving for a week long camping trip and having a meal plan to meet my needs is important to my stability. .
I went to work and afterwards made the trek back down to Michigan Ave to see my psychiatrist. I had hard conversations about what support needs to look like. I was vulnerable. .
I wrapped up the day with therapy. More vulnerability. I finally got back to my apt over 12 hours since leaving it in the morning. .
My needs and healthy habits might look different than other 28 year olds. This is what maintaining stability and health looks like right now. This is living, surviving, falling and rising looks like. This is life with mental illness.
