I’m a girl in her late-twenties trying to make it in the mental health system after thirteen years of getting help for mental illness. I am diagnosed with bipolar I disorder, borderline personality disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, and bulimia nervosa. And yet I am so much more. I am a creative, witty, and kind person who values education and health. I am currently studying community health education in graduate school. My passion for mental health shines in my blog posts, schoolwork, card business, and everyday life. Follow along in my personal mental health journey towards wellness.

If you’ve noticed, each of my blog posts features a unique card I’ve made. I run a greeting card business where I sell all types of cards, but I specialize in uplifting/positive ones. http://www.etsy.com/RefinedResilience

Let’s make this blog a conversation! Feel free to comment on any post you have ideas or questions about. I love input and to communicate with others passionate about mental health like myself.
