The posts on this site started as me just writing my inner racing thoughts during manic or depressive episodes, but they turned into so much more. These thoughts are not just my own. I think most people experience these dark thoughts, mental illness just lives there. I think this is one of the biggest taboos and white elephants in the room. People don’t talk about the real side of mental illness. They talk about the facts. If someone is recently diagnosed and they’re trying to explain it to someone, they keep it simple. No one wants to sound more crazy…but I am ready to lay it all out there. I am ready to say and explain the things most people are afraid to. I want to give the feeling of relief to my readers that feel so alone in this world. I want to give you something to read that you actually relate to. I don’t know how many times I would try to research my diagnosis and how it’s supposed to effect my relationships, my life, but everything always came up short. I was always left feeling more crazy. But guess what!? We are all crazy, but we are not all mentally ill. I’m here to help you learn the difference. I can’t wait for your feedback and your stories that made you who you are.
