I was 15 years old at they time it was time for big school now were I had to study hard in maths,English,science I was studying everyday didn’t have any friends I was bullied alot I didn’t fit inwell I was getting into a lot trouble.
But I some how finished they school year with good grades and whent straight into college and study animal care somethink that kept me focus I was studying hard I was happy laughing with new people .
I felt safe while in college it somewere I could excape from my family and study and get great grades and have fun aswell I loved animals I was getting older I had finished level 2 animal care but because off covid I had to study at home it was hard to fit in they time.
Sadly I didn’t pass maths because off covid but passed all my other course work with struggle then I was thinking taken level 3 animal care but then my mental health strike me .
That when life change I had to stop and I had to give up what I love because I couldn’t leave house without feeling dizzy and unwell I thought was ear infection but nope it was anxiety and depression.
I whent into doctors were they had diagnosed me with high risk anxiety they prescribed me medication I was sick when first take it then took for few days then stopped taken it .
This is when I began to feel very poorly I couldn’t eat I couldn’t move I was getting hot then cold my weight when down to the 4 stone I was very skinny I had eaten disorder it was a battle and had start my medication agian I was sleepy tired .
I had no support or help by any friends or family I started to get better I started eaten then I met a friend who change my life for few months then started to get sick agian I stopped eaten I stoppped asking for help I closed myself off from people then lost one good thing in my life I was told put myself first.
I cryed for days I try killing myself 45 times then I stopped and started to put on weight and began put myself first I did it alone got myself a stable job and I worked hard for days and never ever gave up I lived in moment.
And I would have up down days put allways had smile and pushed on because I survived alot these past few years and I will never ever give up .
