I shaved my head, shedding years of a security blanket because I thought longer hair made me “pretty”. I’ve always been pretty extreme in the hair department, but this was absolutely empowering and liberating.
I’m becoming myself again. I’m tapering off of the obnoxious amount of tranquilizers and anticonvulsants etc. I was over medicated and I didn’t even realize this.
Therapy is helping me face my fears. I feel born again. There is hope guys. Don’t let your disorder define you, there are healthy ways to cope, we just have to do it. That is strength.
