Shannon Diana- Mental Health Version

Hey Folks..

How are you today? (You better not be lying to me..)

It’s my 21st birthday in 3 days!!

So.. I wanted to tell my new readers a bit about me.

I have been battling a long fight since I was 9/10. I’ve been battling with my mental health. It just has to be invisible doesn’t it? Just my luck.. Well I’ll let you into the knowledge of my little ugly sisters.

Depression and social anxiety disorder.

I have suspected bipolar disorder & borderline personality disorder. (It takes a while to diagnose these illnesses. As the symptoms are very alike. 

I take 2 antidepressants in the morning called Paroexetine. My dosage is 40mg. It might be upped in the future or it might even be changed. 

I also take an Anti-Psychotic which is called Quetiapine. I take them twice a day. My dosage is 50mg. 

I will do a post on medications in the future. So, keep your eyes peeled for future content. Sorry about the lacking of posting on my blog as.. I had a rough couple of weeks and I just couldn’t cope.. BUT THAT’S OK!

Till next time.. 

Love, Shannon Diana xx
