stigma, depression, mental health, misunderstanding, medications, and how to deal with it all

someday I might talk about that.
but not today.


This post has been sitting in my post draft box since 2008. Yes. For 4 years. 4 Years. And I have not had the courage to even post this. Crazy, isn't it?

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

So I'm just going to go ahead and finally post it. Now. Today.

I've been following a Talk Out movement with the goal of reducing the stigma of mental illness by letting people know it's ok to talk about it. So, here we go! We're gonna talk about it on my blog this month. WATCH OUT!! hahaha.;)

It's good though too, because it will give me something else to talk about besides my constant pain (oooh, goodie!).

Coming up first will be a review of the book Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher that I read a little while ago and have not been able to get out of my head. Really good book. If you have a chance to grab the book, it's Young Adult Fiction, really quick read, then we can discuss it together. If not, I'll discuss it anyway.;)

I'll try to keep catching up on a lot of other blog postings as well (so much to post!! ahhh!). I just feel like now might be a good time to "talk out" on some of this other stuff mulling around in my brain. Don't you agree?!

Ok. Hold on tight, folks. This could be quite the ride! Wheeee!!!!

A very good topic, something I feel is hard to talk about too.

I try to be very open about my struggles when it comes up because I think that it helps people to know that they are not alone.
