Mental Health month

One of the hardest things about getting diagnosed with a chronic illness is the effects they have on your mental health.

When I was going through the diagnosis process, my mental health was at an all time low. I couldn't explain to people what was going on with me and had to cancel a lot of plans thanks to my, at the time, unknown illness.

Then I finally got a diagnosis and the feeling of grief and sadness kicked in thanks to not being able to do what I used to be able to do the things I used to and having to give up foods and things. I still had to cancel plans, people didn't understand what I was going through. and I didn't know how to cope.

These feelings are all valid. These feelings are all normal. I have had Crohns for three years now and have been diagnosed with other things on top of it and I am here to tell you that it gets better. You may feel like absolute crap, but I promise it gets better as time goes on mentally.


I love you all lots.


Yours truly,


Kaitlyn

Mental health is overlooked in young people who have chronic health conditions. Anxiety and depression are secondary to the physical condition and can impact the condition. All of you are helping each other though sharing and support.
