At the age of 20 years old, Anna was diagnosed with clinical depression, generalized anxiety disorder and orthorexia. Unfortunately, she was only able to come to terms with her mental health once she encountered her very own version of rock bottom.
Currently, Anna is an advocate for mental wellness and mental illness. She believes in creating a dialogue surrounding mental health. Her close friends and family have watched her open up about her own mental health. With their support, Anna has slowly learned to accept her mental illness by constantly breaking down the stigmas associated with it. Funnily enough, she has provided her support network with the opportunity to confront their own well-being and enlist her as their support system.
Daily Insanity is her story. It will feature the ups and the downs, with stories for others who may suffer from mental illness and for those trying to be a support system for their own loved ones. It is a safe space for all of us to share our stories and help each other.
So let's be vulnerable in the hope that by opening up about our own struggles, others know they can lean on us when life gets a little too tough.
