a letter to my family
I wanted to make this blog post a letter to my family. To my mom and dad, without your support I don’t think I would have made it through this.

i am mad, you say?
Having a serious mental illness has taught me a lot about life, it taught me to be kind and empathetic, it showed me strength and courage, it made me accepting and non judgemental, it taught me forgiveness, it gave me a perspective on life that I do not think many people have and a perspectiveContinue reading “i am mad, you say?”
