Why I Do This

Sometimes I wonder to myself why I post about my mental health struggles on this blog. Do people really care? Do they really want to know about my life?

I've been doing really well. The term my psychologist likes to use is "stable." According to her, this is the longest she's seen me … Continue reading Where Have I Been?
