It took several years for Christina Erde to understand and come to terms with her diagnosis of mental illness. Her struggle began as a child when she experienced sometimes crippling anxiety. Her transition into adulthood triggered severe depression and she began seeing a therapist and taking medication.

About four years ago, a crisis landed her in the hospital, where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. For a while, things went from bad to worse and she was hospitalized again after attempting to take her own life.

With the help of professionals and her family, slowly but surely, things began to turn around. Christina came to accept her diagnosis and become more engaged in her recovery process. She realized that her life had meaning and that she was going to be ok. She now shares her story to help others who may struggle as she once did. Christina Erde is today’s guest on the Catching Your Memories podcast.
