I know I’m not the first to say this, but sometimes recovery is hard because it feels so different! I enjoy not being depressed and all but in the past couple years that I’ve moved and started grad school, I sometimes find myself thinking, “my new friends only know me as mentally healthy. They don’t know the real me.” And then I have to remind myself that this IS the real me, health is my natural state of being…but it almost feels like I’m keeping a giant secret from them. I hadn’t anticipated that adjusting to being healthy was going to be so difficult!

Just venting!
