I am Emily Rose and I am me. This is a blog designated to documenting my life with mental illness. I suffer with depression, anxiety and agoraphobia. I struggle quite a bit with not feeling like ‘the old me’ and I often feel lost in myself. I hope that I will be able to find peace within myself again and the confidence to get a little bit of Emily Rose back, but until then I am trying to enjoy my life – being me.

My hope for this blog is to bring awareness to mental health, to help end the stigma, bring hope to others that suffer with mental illness and maybe give some little tips to help along the way. To show you that you can still live a fulfilling life, you can still be you. It just takes a little while to adjust and find yourself again. I’m certainly still searching.
