My name is Erin and I am 24 years old, living in Northern Ireland.
I have decided to blog my mental health journey and to help people realise what life is like for someone with a mental health issue – That I am still a person and not just a label.
My Mental Health issues began when I was 13 and have been ongoing ever since. Over the years I have received several diagnoses including Depression and an Eating Disorder (EDNOS) with the most recent diagnosis being Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD).
I’ve been involved with the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Team and am now dealing with the Community Mental Health Team in my area as an adult.
I hope that 2019 will be the year that I finally get adequate help and that you will join me on my journey.
