Thanks so much for sharing this Eliza, I never even knew this existed! I can definitely relate to what you spoke about not feeling like you could strive to do the things you wanted to achieve once you were “labeled” or told you had a disability, etc., because I feel that is the reason I was stuck for so long. I don’t think the mental health system is designed in a way to help those who receive diagnosis understand that recovery is attainable and that we don’t have to remain in the same vicious downwards cycle forever. I am glad you are now able to say that recovery is possible, and although some days may still get hard here and there, it will always still be worth the fight! 🙂
