TW// mentions of suicide in the introduction
When it comes to mental health, I have only been honest around here. If you have been reading me for a while you may then know that I tried to commit suicide several times in my life. If I talk about it so freely online, it’s only because I wish I would have found others talking about it when I was younger and when I was feeling alone. Well, as it is Suicide Prevention Month, I thought it was only normal to dedicate a blog post to it.
I didn’t want to trigger anyone with this blog post so instead of recommending books which dealt with suicide (I can never read those books, so that’s why I avoided it) I decided to recommend five books which will hopefully make you feel less alone and maybe bring you hope.

I remember having to face my first panic attack when I was 11 years old. I have been diagnosed with depression at 14. A lot of other names have been added to all of this, but the whole point is that I have been suffering from a mental illness pretty much my all life. Obviously it helped me being who I am today, even though it does not define me.
I think it’s important to emphasise the fact that none of what I have been through really says anything about myself. I just learned through the years to get something out of it, to see the brightside of it all. So here is what I learned from having a mental illness.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
If you know me then you know that mental health is something very close to my heart and that I try to bring awareness towards it every day. I talk a lot about it on my Instagram and always try to be honest in order to help others realising that they aren’t alone. Obviously I had to write a few posts dedicated to it this month.
Today I wanted to present to you all my five favourite books which deal with mental health.

Last week I wrote a pretty emotional and honest caption over Instagram. After disappearing for a week I thought I had to be sincere since I always want to bring awareness when it comes to mental health issues.
As I am also keeping track of my progress over my blog I thought I could write a little something here as well about how I cope with dealing with a mental illness on a daily basis.

During June of 2018 I spent a month at the hospital, mostly for my eating disorder, but also for many other little problems I have. They made me realize I also struggle with OCD and two months after leaving my depression was making a come back. It has been seven months since it all happened and I really wanted to take the time to write about my recovery because it sure hasn’t been a straight line, but I’m still making progress and I am definitely going somewhere.
So, here is my seven months recovery journey.

Now that I am officially back on my blog I can talk again about mental health and everything that is related to it. Today I wanted to talk about something that has been asked to me a lot on Instagram: how to cope with a bad day.

Anyway, let’s get through some of my tips for coping with a bad day.
