Day 17: If you could get rid of your mental illness(es) would you? Why or why not?

Honestly? No I wouldn’t because yes, there’s a lot of negatives to my illness but at the same time, being ill has lead me to where I am today. Everything I have gone through because of my illness and my diagnosis, makes me the person I am today so no, I wouldn’t change it. Do I sometimes wish things were easily? Yes but I think that’s normal sometimes, isn’t it?
