My top 10 everyday ways of coping with my mental health problems.

So these won't apply to everyone as I'm writing from personal experience - but I often get asked advice on this and thought it was time to compile a little blog for you all!

As a backstory here - I suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, OCD and cPTSD, these are just a few of the ways I cope alongside therapy and medication - these tips are not here to replace those, but just to help in everyday life!
