“This was the first time I told my story for everyone to hear. My story wasn’t an in depth depiction of my situation but sharing some of my fears for all felt good. Also, seeing that many people share the same feelings as I do was comforting that I am not alone. I always knew I wasn’t alone, however the stories on this blog site is like group therapy. Being that I do not always do well in groups, this site is a refreshing alternative. Having accepted my mental illness, I carry on the best I can. I will continue visiting this site to gain further insight from real life experiences by Trish and her Guest Bloggers.” ~ JL
