Stigma No More
I hope you are doing well, I am doing good. I have decided to start another blog. http://stigmanomore.blogspot.com/. It is called Stigma no more. I have personally been an advocate for people who suffer from mental illness. Most of you that visit this blog know my mothers story. I have my own Panic Disorder and so does my daughter. We are lucky we just take a pill and it goes away and we can live normal lives. My biggest fear growing up was that I would inherit my mothers disease and go through what she did. Luckily that is not the case. I still have a close relative who is not as lucky and me and my daughter. This person is struggling with Bipolar disorder and after their recent breakdown it made me realize that there is still such a stigma attached to mental illness. I will share information about the different mental illnesses and their treatments. I would encourage anyone to feel free to share their story and I will post it if you want me to. I may not make a big difference, but I feel I need to start somewhere to help end this stigma. I also hope to help people who feel they are alone or need support.
Thanks for visiting my blog,
