My name is Josette. I live in Sydney and will be starting university early next year! I have dealt with mental illness most my life but was only diagnosed a year ago. Within the time frame of a year though I have learnt so much about my diagnoses, the best strategies to manage my condition, and heaps of self-care methods which go a long way in aiding meds to give the best possible result. Therefore I'm a strong believer in recovery, and I have so much faith that everyone with any mental illness can lead a full and fulfilling life, making a difference to the people and world around them!
beyondblue was a very crucial part of my recovery, and therefore I am honoured to be part of the forums and beyondblue community. Other than beyondblue though, my interests range from reading, science, medicine and health, running and Christmas!! I live with my parents and two brothers who I love so much, and who play such a massive role in my life and my wellbeing.
Can't wait to "meet" more new people via the forums, so that we share our experiences - the good times, the tough times, but most importantly, the hope that we all share as we navigate our way to lead a happy and peaceful life!
