This is a long journal but I would really appreciate if you read it all <3

So, not to long ago someone asked me something that got me thinking. "Himi, why do you act so happy and cheer others up so much?" While my short and simple answer was; "Why spend your life being sad?" It kinda got me thinking.

Why do I, who haven't had the best life up till now, care so much for others being happy? I mean, I lack a lot of empathy and sympathy and such. Maybe it's because I don't want to see others hit rock bottom like I did.

Now I know very few of you know my story, and I thought I would share it. Not my entire life, just the rough times and how I ended up where I am today.

At Christmas 2004, I collapsed on the floor. Not passed out, just collapsed. My joints swelled up, they looked like tennis balls. My joints hurt a lot and my mom called the doctor and we went to get a check up on the next day. No answers, just painkillers. I was so exhausted by nothing, I couldn't walk by myself. This was the worst thing that could happen to me. I loved to run around, climb tree and play. I was a hyperactive and playful kid. Then bang, hit a wall, no more. I spent the next four months on the couch, sleeping or watching TV. There was nothing I could do really.

I got back in school after a bit, and the next six years is what I call a living hell. Sure it started softly so to say. I usually just managed two hours before being picked up! I went to the doctor and hospital frequently. The next two years go as that. Go to school, get picked up when I didn't manage more. I rarely managed a whole school day.

When I was 10, 4th grade by that point, I got to join the classes for the kids who was hard of learning. That did not go well. I got tired and didn't focus good, but I learnt and knew my stuff, top grades. Anyways, later on mom got a call from the hospital in Oslo, we used to go to the one in Stavanger, Oslo is 8 hours in car from us. They want me in to be examined. So, the next whole month I spend in a hospital. The doctors suspect I might have some kind of Rheumatoid arthritis, a diagnosis that stands still to this day, and possibly CFS. The latter just because they couldn't find out what it was, and it's still a mystery.

Back home with no medication, no cure, no set-in-stone diagnosis either. My mom is quite frustrated to know what it is and understandably so. But still, back to school. The rest of 4th grade to 6th grade was though, no help and no idea what was wrong with me. I got exhausted and depressed. This is when I started going down the dark road. At the start of 6th grade I started going to a psychologist. He was one of Norways best, and he found two things. ADD and Autism. And I got help with my depression for then, and medication to help for the ADD.

By this time doctors and such got more involved with school and such. Trying to get me the best help they could. They didn't do anything to help. I went from special teacher to special teacher to home school. I ended up hating teachers, it felt like none of them wanted to understand what help I needed and why. The living hell started from 7th grade, the last year on preschool.

We go to a different school for grade 1-7 and then another one for 8-10 here in Norway before high school and college.

I get accepted into a school with experience with autistic students. Finally, some hope. I thought finally, I could get to have school again and enjoy it. So wrong. The special teachers I got were pathetic. They lied to my mom saying I didn't behave, good thing mom knows me so good. She knows I can't lie at all.
And at the start of 9th grade, when I was 13-14, it happened.

Rock bottom.

I had had enough of it all. I couldn't take it. I couldn't take the teachers, the pressure, my own life anymore. I got severely depressed, major anxiety and I got suicidal. On multiple occasions when I was home alone... I sat on the kitchen floor with a big kitchen knife in my hand. Taking my life would be so easy, slit my own throat, stab myself anything at all. What kept me from doing it. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to pet my dog anymore, I was afraid it would hurt. Yes, that is the reason why I didn't do it.

Mom took me out of school before being allowed to by the government because she couldn't bare to see me so depressed, at least that's what she told me. And I can't thank her enough for it. If she didn't, I'm afraid I might have ended up taking my own life.

Randomly browsing the internet some time later, I came across this site. DeviantART. I liked to draw so I made an account. Best decision of my life. The friends I have gotten though deviantART, everyone of you, life savers. During my time after rock bottom, my reason to wake up in the morning was knowing that there were people out there who wanted to talk with me. This has been the driving force through the down times after that too.

Nowadays I realised, I am really lucky and happy. A stressful childhood filled with adults not understanding what help I need and making school a living hell has made me determined to cheer up other people as much as I can and try to help in any way to have others go through anything as much of a hell as me. Once ya hit rock bottom things can only get better.

Thank you very much, all of you who have read though this all. I really wanted to tell you all my story and that, in the end; No illness can ruin your life, its how you decide to live with it and accept it. I used to run around like the energizer bunny, now I cant walk up the stairs without getting tired due to my illness. But I found new things I liked to do that I could manage. And now, I want others to realise the same thing, and share it. You got a friend who is sad, cheer them up or just talk to them. Let them know that you appreciate them just being there, just being able to talk to them. Who knows, it might end up saving a life in the end.
