About

Hey, I'm mai :) I'm an illustrator, writer, and editor to several Original and Canvas titles on Webtoon. I'm also a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, volleyballer, and now, a mental health advocate.

Recently, I've been formally diagnosed with major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, ADHD, OCD, CPTSD and WAS bulimic for 16 years after stopping in 10/2019. I had the worst trigger mid February 2020 that led to a mental breakdown.

I wanted to start a blog thru Patreon so I could share my personal experience with my mental disorders that stemmed from my childhood. Why Patreon? Because I didn't want the stress of my making a website and I only want those who actually WANT to read and follow my journey to see. And just because it's on Patreon doesn't mean you HAVE to donate. I won't pressure or ask you at all because I want to help those who are unable to or don't want to feel alone.

Mental health is scary and it's even scarier going thru it alone because you can't afford it or no one believes you. So I want to share with you on here so that you know you're not alone. I couldn't talk to anyone except a couple of people but even then, it's not the same when you talk to someone who actually has them. This won't be consistent as I'm going to talk about things that hit me as they come.

So, this is going to get personal, sometimes fun, sometimes dark, and sometimes not so exciting but that's life. I'll start with some background info, events, symptoms, and everything else. Life didn't come with a set of instructions so the best way to learn is thru experience. Who knows, maybe you'll help me as I help you.
