Hi, I'm a Hotmess... I mean Hailey

I'm currently sitting in my plant room enjoying a morning cup of coffee after a short meditation. I've wanted to put my writing out there for awhile as well as some of my daily thoughts. I'm sitting here letting the coffee sink in debating what to put here, my whole life story, the past traumas, the wins, the losses and everything in between. Or do I just give you the spark notes version and let you fill in the blanks of my life. (We could start some very fun rumours that way)

Here's the basics, I'm 22, I live in a small Manitoba town in a small apartment with my boyfriend and our new puppy, Pilot. I recently stepped away from my job in hopes to get a better balance with my mental health.

And here comes the spill your guts stuff...

On October 11th I lost my best friend of two years, Moose, very traumatically after an accidental poisoning, just short of a year after I tried to kill myself with an aggressive overdose of pills and alcohol after battling addiction for months. Almost two years after I found one of our roommates after she completed suicide. Almost three years after I left university. There's a lot in between that.

One of the best things that has come out of what has been the last three year fiasco is proper diagnosis of Mental Illness. An essential part to being on the road to recovery or a more balanced lifestyle is to figure out what you're recovering from.

My diagnosis include - General Anxiety Disorder, Major Depressive Disorder, Complex - Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder and ADHD. Just a fun little assortment.

Anyways, I wanted to keep the introduction short and leave it somewhat open to give myself opportunity to speak on some of these topics in the future.

xxoo, Hailey
