Welcome to the blog! I’m sure you’ll get to know me through my posts, but let’s start the first one with some basics about me. Hi! I’m Carley. I have Borderline Personality Disorder, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Agorophobia. You may think that makes me completely crazy (and you may be right), but I am surprisingly high functioning. I am a manager in a high paced office, wife and mother, and most people don’t have a clue the difficulties I face in my screwed up brain everyday.
Anyhoo, this blog is going to be a chance for me to share what my experience with mental illness is like, what I’m doing to cope with it, and maybe shine a little light on some highly misunderstood disorders. I am not a medical professional, so please don’t take anything I say as advice. And please also remember that no one experiences illness the exact same as anyone else. This is simply my journey and how these disorders effect me.
