I may struggle with my mental health but I never intend to give up on my life getting better.

I plan to try to graduate again from the program that I am going to. I have been there for about two months and I have been getting my medication injected for a while now so I can get rid of having to take all of these pills. I am looking forward to my 39th birthday later this month. I will not isolate myself. I have gotten perfect attendance for both October, November and December 2019. I feel like no matter how hard I try it is still hard. I need to get my sleep at night and power down the internet after like 11 pm. I have had struggles in my life with my mental illness and racism and insomnia. I sleep better but I can still used to getting my shut eye around 11 pm. I get up to use the restroom but then I go back to bed. I don’t stay up all night anymore but sleep is a big trigger for me that and people pushing my buttons all the time. I am almost forty years old. This experience for me blogging and being nominated for blogger awards has been amazing. I have so much gratitude for being nominated. I feel like I am a part of this blogging community that is something nice to be able to say. I think when a person isolates themselves from others they lose. It’s something I really appreciate here that I am a part of this blogging community and there are so many cool mental health blogger like Mentally Speaking, Hannah Blum’s blog H2H is really great mental health blog and there are a few others that just do a great job as writers and have great content.
