Smile Recovery Stories! ^_^ - April 11th 2015, 05:10 AM

I was thinking that this could be a thread where people could maybe share their recovery stories and give others recovering confidence/motivation to stop c: I'd give one.. but, I don't really have one myself yet hehe.

Re: Recovery Stories! ^_^ - April 12th 2015, 04:20 AM

Well, I'm by no means fully recovered but I am now to a point where I can normally go a long time in between self harming episodes, so does that count?

I think it's a matter of not giving up. Recovery can be a super long process but it is worth the effort and eventually you WILL make progress, even if it is small steps at a time. I know that for me going to college was a big help because I could start taking care of things on my own without my parents knowing. Either way, you will get an opportunity to recover. ^_^

I'm not completely recovered either but so I came out of a psychiatric hospital and decided I needed to do all that I could to change my life.

I'm at University studying Nursing, I work in a Psychiatric Hospital, have a amazing boyfriend, house and car. Hopefully we'll have our own family soon. I really feel like my life is starting to come together!

It wasn't by any means easy and some days it still isn't, but I'm getting there
