Mental health is a touchy subject to discuss..
Many people try to hide it because they don’t want people judging them. Some people have families that are less than supportive and want nothing to do with them once they get their diagnosis.
I speak from personal experience, In December of 2009 I received my diagnosis of schizoaffective.
I was struggling with hearing voices and extreme depression. I was in and out of the hospital for a whole year. At times it felt like I lived there and I felt hopeless. The process of getting me on the right meds was exhausting! The first year I felt like a zombie, I basically just sat in a chair doing nothing. I have gone down from 15meds to 3! PRAISE THE LORD! I am very lucky to have had a great support team (outside of my family) an amazing caseworker and psychiatrist that truly care about me and are amazing at their jobs! Most of my family is very supportive and encouraging as well!
My mom has become very passionate about essential oils and they really can do amazing things! My daughter has Aspergers and Jeddy’s blend has changed her LIFE!
I recently read a post about essential oils that help with many of the struggles faced that come along with mental illness.
