I've started experiencing some new mental health symptoms earlier this week. I know I shouldn't be ashamed of any of this, and yet I am. Because of this, I'm not ready to share it with all of you just yet.
I feel guilty for not sharing what is happening to me right now. I started this blog to open up peoples eyes about mental illness, end the stigma and share my story. And here I am, too ashamed to share mine, and hence doing nothing to end the stigma.
I hope once some of what is happening gets sorted out I'll feel more comfortable sharing with all of you.
The plan for today is lots of rest, a doctors appointment, groceries, and some light course work.
I emailed my professors and they were all very understanding and I'm grateful I have found the strength to talk to them. This is the first time I've admitted to a professor that my mental health was coming in the way of my studies and I received overwhelmingly helpful and positive replies.
My goal is to catch up with course work over the next few days, and perhaps go to a professors office hour tomorrow.
I hope you're all doing well.
