If you’ve followed me over the past few years, by now you might have followed bits and pieces of my mental health journey too. It all started with my blog post “living with anxiety“, and since then I’ve gone on to share more via YouTube. Below is a summary:

And in this blog post as you might have guessed, I want to cover the topic of recovery.

Part of my journey has of course been getting “better” or moving on from the traumatic events I experienced, and learning to cope with stress anxiety and more. This is how I’m able to share what I’ve been through so openly.

It seemed only natural to share the more positive sides of this story with you too, and that includes how the recovery process started. I want people to know that is possible to overcome these experiences, even if you might not think so whilst you’re in the thick of it. In the video below, I talk about how my recovery started and what I did.

(The great news is, I’m getting better at my editing and planning so the video is only 14 minutes long with better audio and better cuts.)

I hope you find it interesting!

Do you feel like you want to talk to someone about your own recovery?
