Its taken me a while to write this because half way through, I had a block. Who am I? Who actually am I? In short terms I’m Jasmine, I’m a 19 year old girl from the UK. But who really am I? I feel like my Mental health has taken away who I actually am. Who was I? I was a girl who loved food, loved dance, didn’t like school that much and a family girl. Oh, how that changed. I don’t feel comfortable going into loads of detail now but maybe as I get more comfortable I’ll say more.
But, who am I now? A 19 year old paranoid, depressed, anxious, girl. Scared of the traumas that still haunts me and my every move. Scared of gaining weight, with my fear of food is still ongoing; not as bad as it was but still there. A 19 year old scared of, well, life. Yep, life. Most of you just see a smiling, ‘happy’, bubbly, sarcastic girl. But I am also someone that loves dance, family, my gorgeous puppy, campaigning, helping people and caring.
Who am I? Or who do I want to be? I don’t think, in a bizarre way I’d want to change; who I am, what has happened to me because well, that’s made me who I am today. That’s given me the amazing people I have in my life and made me cherish the little bits in life. So who am I? I am Jasmine, I have mental health issues and I am not ashamed. That is also me. I have been through hell and I haven’t quite got back from there yet. But slowly I am getting there.
