We've all been told that mental health isn't just something you can power through
We've all been told that mental health isn't just something you can power through with strong will, but it never quite clicked for me until I did a genetic test. My doctor was able to clearly show that my brain is swimming in dopamine and adrenaline and cannot get rid of it, and that's why I have bipolar and adhd. It made me think- I literally have bugs in my source code. I'm a miracle that I can function and live a fulfilling life despite all the glitches in my genetic makeup. And that helped me be more in awe of all I've done, instead of feeling like I'm full of defects.
