I am a transgender male. I have been in and out of mental hospitals 6 times since august of 2016, for depression, anxiety, bulimia, self harm, and suicide attempts.
My reason for doing this is to say, I’m stable now. I’m not perfect, I’m not happy. But it went from self harm every other day, to being a month clean.
Death isn’t the only thing on my mind anymore. I want anybody who’s struggling to know that I’m okay now even though i never thought i would be.
So i want anybody reading this to know that it does get better, even now i still think about cutting every time i see a knife. I do think about throwing up every time i eat. It’s not easy. It’s not fun.
But i’m to the point where it’s livable. Which is a lot more than i was. And eventually, anybody struggling with similar things will be too.
