Haven’t commented here in quite some time.
I just wanted to tell everyone that I am doing amazingly well, b”H. For all those that don’t remember or know who I am, I have a mental illness and am in the shidduch system as well. I’ve commented about how hard it is for me (as for most people in shidduchim) and how distressing it is to have to tell someone (at the right time, iy”H) that I have this illness but that I am doing everything in my power to become better- which has worked so far.
Btw- we have lowered one of my medications. Doctor feels like I can do without it so we will slowly start weening me off of it, iy”H.
Thanks everyone for all your support!!!June 14, 2011 11:55 pm at 11:55 pm #776878pascha bchochmaMember

Just to mention, that I have a classmate who also has some mental illness and is on medics. She’s happily married now and looks like is doing very well. She’s been through hard times, but as you see, she got there, and so will you!!

@pascha bchochma and deiyezooger- thank you!!
@smartcookie- thanks for telling me that. I love hearing of ‘success stories’. It makes me realize that it really is possible for me to get there one day, iy”H.
I’ve also learned a great deal about myself from my experiences. One thing that I just realized I learned was that I’ve become very very thankful for so many things around me. I’ve come to appreciate things so much more than before. It is such a good feeling:)June 15, 2011 12:54 am at 12:54 am #776882☕️coffee addictParticipant
