I am a master procrastinator.
There are only two things I have followed through on in my life.
(I’m exaggerating slightly but it makes for a better story.)
One of those was my pregnancy.
nature gave me no option lol.
The other one was completing this book.
It took blood, sweat, and tears, as well as enthusiastic coaching from a support network to ensure both products were birthed properly.
But I managed it.
So I introduce to you my newly born, but strangely named,
“BLUE JELLYFISH SYNDROME”
I could not be a prouder parent.
In this book you will read how my mental illness,
developed and how over the years I learnt, with the help of my community mental health team
and, eventually, a great therapist,
to manage my symptoms.
It has been a very challenging journey indeed,
and as I’m sure many of you will appreciate,
I felt like giving up at times.
Mostly this book is about
and how you can find and maintain hope while living with a mental illness
so you can
SURVIVE AND THRIVE.
My hope is that as you read it my journey will help you along your journey a little
