I heard my thoughts said aloud by a guest on The Mental Illness Happy Hour. Feelings after mania, feelings in depression.
"You own everything that happened to you. Tell your stories." I fear telling stories, but intend to push through that fear as I continue to contribute to this site.
Mental Illness - It is what it is - Difficult to talk about AND to deal with. It's time for me to face the music and to try to re-enter my life, standing tall in acceptance, while feeling small and wishing it would all go away.
