Olivia Palermo New York City Fashion Style
Finally, an answer
Eight weeks later, I saw my usual GP, who finally got me the help I needed by referring me to a psychologist and a therapist. After numerous trips to different experts, I was diagnosed withdissociative amnesia, a mental illness that strikes suddenly due to stress or trauma and causes massive blocks in memory. The experience was hugely traumatic, but I’m really glad it happened because ultimately it was the catalyst for a huge change in my life.
After lots of counselling and hard work, I’m now mentally, emotionally and physically healthier than I have ever been. My memory hasn’t been completely restored, but is a mix of things that I have recalled, things I have been told and things I have read in my diaries. Life is not perfect, but I’m slowly making progress on liking myself.
I’m learning to live a healthy life and rebuilding my identity and self-esteem, even if I only do one thing each day that makes me feel good about being me.
I just want people to know that no matter how bad it gets – and it did get really dark for me at times – you can heal the mind.
