Hello there! I’m Summer Schyff. I’m currently 24 years old from Ontario Canada.
I am a mental health advocate and chronic illness warrior, just sharing my story one post at a time from a christian perspective.
I have been diagnosed with OCD, and major depressive disorder with psychotic tendencies.
I spent a majority of three years in a psychiatric hospital trying to manage my mental health. I am now living at home continuing to work on recovery.
In 2014 I got a puppy and began to train her as a service dog!
She initially was to help with anxiety, dissociations, and psychosis, but when she was a year old she started alerting to my seizures about 10 minutes before they happened.
Her name is Zoë and she is incredible!
She is now just over 4 years old.
In my recovery goals I am working towards continuing college. I have learned so much already from my one and a half courses at Heritage Bible college!
God’s plan for my life tends to be different than my own plans. I did not plan to be living off of dissability and relying on my family at 24 years old. But quite honestly, this “change in plan” has been a blessing. I’m so grateful for the way it has fueled my desire to know, obey, and have a relationship with Christ.
