I never understood how things really worked in life growing up. I always tried to do my best. Not everybody would say I fit the norm. All I wanted is to enjoy life and be festive with it. If I can help other people learn from my past, then that would me valuable to me. I don’t need much to be happy. Sometimes when I stress, all I need is good therapy, and a good road map to follow and then, I will be okay.
Living a Disordered Life is about growing up with the confusion that something is wrong when being told everything looks alright. It gives the reader an understanding from the first-person perspective what life is like without medication and not the proper support of what the life’s journey is like through this story.
You will see what builds up in a person’s character and you will learn things they do to cope with it.

With medicine, for the ups and downs of the main character finally get a second chance and changing doctors, following a treatment plan, and committing to therapy lead to a healthier living.
Learning was not enough for me. I want to advocate for mental awareness and say thanks to the people who helped me get to where I am now. However, just writing about my experiences is to give the student or reader something to see what one goes through and get the strength to voice about it.
