Hi, I'm Debbie.

I'm 26 years old. I've had an usual life, and I'm not sure how much I can divulge. To put it simply, I've suffered from mental illness for most of my life.

I was always very anxious, shy, and over-sensitive as a child. Eventually, at 14, I fell over the edge and developed real mental health problems: namely, Body Dysmorphic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety, and Depression. Of course, they weren't all diagnosed at once. It's taken many years. Currently, mental health services are looking into the possibility that I have Avoidant Personality Disorder. 

It's hard to understand, I know. I don't expect anyone to understand me, nor do I understand anyone else. Peace is not a feeling I am familiar with anymore. I can't relate to most people, who see, think, feel, and live differently than I do. It's very isolating. 
I have trouble going out. I have trouble being alone. I have trouble with adult responsibilities. I'm certified "disabled," and a hated member of society. 

I have learning difficulties on top of everything else, and I find it hard to understand the world and how it works. I'm very sensitive and easily affected by the cruelty, abuse, control, condemnation and hatred that people show to others. It may be what I struggle with most, the root of my problems from the beginning. 

And so I am here. I'm here because I care, because I want to sprinkle some kindness in this world. I like to believe that I'm making a difference here, with the donating and the petitions and the gifts. I believe in being open-minded. Life is complicated - so are people. And we all experience life differently, all have a different perspective. 

Please be kind. Have compassion, an open mind, tolerance and empathy. I'm not perfect, of course, I judge too. But I try to understand. Not everyone has a healthy mind, a healthy body, a good home, a functional family, a good career, a good education. Not everyone will go to school, take their SATs, go to college, make a career, marry and have two kids. I wish with all my heart that it turned out that way for me, but my brain had ideas of its own. It's been my challenge in life to endure, if not entirely overcome, the obstacle of mental illness and learning difficulties. It's an ongoing battle... And probably always will be. But I will fight. And I will fight for goodness, kindness, and love. I may as well start here.
