When I arrived I was the angriest I've ever been. I cam from the psych ward and was brought straight to Brookhaven against my will. I locked myself in my car and am infamous for using livid as my first word in wrap up.
My feeling works have changed. I see myself slipping in words I never thought I would - content, excited, happy. I slowly started to see the transformation the more I attended groups, met with my therapist, and was put on appropriate medication. I now have a future. I couldn't see past the pain and darkness for the past two years. The last few weeks I've begun planning out my timeline for when I leave.
I am so grateful for this shift. The staff and fellow clients have given me a reason to live.
