Brittany, 24, California, US

snapchat-1399122115349352928“I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, chronic depression, and borderline personality disorder when I was 17 years old.

I struggle to form relationships, friendships, I struggle with panic attacks on a regular basis. I have been in and out of clinics, where I have had the opportunity to speak with multiple members of the mental health care team in Cape Breton, NS. I feel very fortunate for this opportunity, for I know first hand how hard it is to take that first step in talking to someone about all of the things that go on in our mind, especially when we are already feeling alienated.

I am so glad however that I took that step; I continue to work on myself every day, and I encourage everyone to express themselves and how they feel. We are all unique, we are all different, and we are all beautiful.

I want all people to know that there is no shame in admitting you have a mental illness, you’re not alone, and you will be okay. ❤ ”
