A little about me…. I am a female college student struggling with mental illness. Official diagnoses: attention deficit (hyper) disorder (some doctors say its ADHD, some say ADD… at any rate it’s hard for me to focus), generalized anxiety disorder, major depressive disorder, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Sometimes, I feel like I’m going from coping mechanism to coping mechanism. Looking back at the bigfer picture, I am (for good) not the same person I was a year ago. While the struggle sometimes seems endless and hopeless, I know that He is always there and never lets go.

A little about the blog…. This is about my journey to trusting the One who created my soul and knows my anxiety better than I ever will. These are real stories of my journey and real lessons that I am learning along the way. As a college student, I keep myself busy but will post when I can

Also, some shoutouts…. first, THANKS TO GOD BECAUSE HE IS SO AWESOME!!! Like I cannot begin to describe how awesome He is, words are too overused that no word can describe Him. He heals and restores and has this ultimate plan that doesn’t make any sense to any of us because sometimes it seems pretty messed up.. but He is ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS IN CONTROL AND ITS SO AWESOME!!! LOVE YOU JESUS!!!

Also, a really big shout out to my InterVarsity Christian Fellowship family…. you guys are so amazing, a gift straight from God. You have changed me and strengthened and walked beside me through it all… and you have never given up on me, even when I gave up on myself. You guys remind me who I am when I forget myself. I love you guys so much!!!! To the internship team, you guys!!! Like I don’t know what I would’ve done without all of y’all on the team. Like, you guys each did so much to build me up and I don’t know what to do except thank you. You guys!!! You guys totally rock and I love you all so much!! To my freshman year roommate… girl, I don’t know what to say. Like I am just so glad we ended up as roommates because you changed my life. You SAVED my life. Thanks girl. I owe you one. Love you bunches. To the guy who called campus security… thanks, you probably saved my life. To the girl who listened to God’s voice when He told her to go back to her dorm early and found me, thanks, you’re awesome. And to all the other InterVarsity people, like there are so many of you and you guys have done so much for me. I love all of you so so so so much.
