More Than Mentally Ill

Fourteen years ago, I was diagnosed with Depression.

Nine years ago, I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder.

Seven years ago, I was diagnosed with EDNOS (Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified).

Five years ago, I graduated college, became a small business owner, and English teacher, but I was still fighting daily battles with my own mind.

Two months ago, I quit my job to pursue my passion – writing.

One week ago, I went back on psychiatric medication.

Two hours ago, I decided to stop letting my diagnoses dictate my life.

Welcome to More Than Mentally Ill, a site dedicated to documenting my own journey through mental illness and a resource for those fighting alongside me.
