About Me


My name is Kat
(herine) Brine and I am a 26 year old female living in Vancouver, BC, Canada. When I was 13 years old I was diagnosed with OCD and generalized anxiety disorder. A few years ago I was diagnosed with major depression. This is my blog, and this is my story. I hope my experiences inspire others, help end the stigma surrounding mental illness, and remind you that you are not alone.
