I’ve said that least 2341547 times. The problem this like that is they are just too compilcated for the average bird, if you know what I mean

I wish there were NAMI walks where I lived. I think there is still such a stigma against mental health. When I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder after being treated in a dual diagnosis treatment center, I even lost a lot of friends. They were afraid of what it meant. But I am still me, and I want the world to realize that. Mental illness doesn’t suddenly make you someone else.
