depression, PTSD, Panic Attack's

My life’s Ups and today’s downs.

The truth of the matter is I’m living in my van. My parents believe that I’m old enough and I should be able to sustain living on my own. Even though I struggle daily with different symptoms from the five mental health issues I posses. My parents blame the easy fix they believe I should not smoke marijuana. Although test have shown its ability to help those with bipolar as well as PTSD. I am not a drug addict. I should not be placed in a drug rehab. These parents of mine are grasping for the easy solution. But ladies and gentlemen Mental Health issues happen to the body without our knowledge. I Choose not to use drugs. It was always offered but I stayed away from them. Unfortunately, as I am trying to heal… I find that if you have mental health issue you are then mixed with drug addicts. I never choose to have these issues. Don’t treat me like I am a drug addict. I continually said no to the many offers I’ve received.

  1. Stay strong girl. Don’t let other peoples ignorance get in your way of finding health and inner peace. I smoke weed myself and if it weren’t for marijuana, I don’t know what I would do. You’re not doing anything wrong except getting better. Be safe!!

  2. Dear Jeannette, I’m sorry to read that you’re now living in your van. I hope one day your parents will truly understand. Until then, I hope you find a way to get on with life and a dwelling that has a bed, bathroom, and somewhere to sit and eat.

  3. If it were legal I’d be smoking pot for my condition. I’m on so many legal drugs that I’m open to anything that could replace them. I imagine living in a van is pretty scary, especially at night, but perhaps a break from your parents is a good thing, coping with family who don’t fully get it, is bad for mental health anyway. At least you have a space that is totally your own. Take good care of yourself.

  5. I am so sorry you are not getting the support & understanding you need. You are not a drug addict, and mental health is a delicate, complex matter that sadly many don’t ‘get’, especially if they haven’t experienced similar things themselves. To be living in your van seems very unfair.. how are you finding it..? Do you have any other support at the moment? Please know we’re all here rooting for you, that we all care. Sending hugs  ♥

  7. I am truly sorry for the struggles that you are going through. I don’t know if you are religious at all, and I hope you don’t get offended by this if you’re not, but I want you to know that you have a loving Father in Heaven and a Savior who are both rooting for you and who will always love you no matter what!
