October 1, 2015 – day one of 31 days of writing

mental health badge for Oct

I guess the best way to start this is out is explain my purpose and to introduce myself.

I have decided to write on mental health. I am advocating against stigma for mental illness especially Bipolar Disorder. This is just one of my many illnesses. I also suffer from Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), Anxiety, Panic Attacks, OCD, and PTSD.

I have suffered all my life from one thing or another since I was a baby. Now I am a grandmother and still suffering. I have learned a lot over the years. I hope to be able to help others who are suffering along with me.

    Hello from another #Write31Days participant who chose mental health as her topic. I also have BPD. I am so glad I found you. I will be eagerly following your journey as you dismantle the stigma surrounding mental illness.

      Nice to meet you Astrid. I wish dismantling the stigma would be easier than it’s going to be. I, however, am not afraid to talk about it. I just had a blogging article published on International Bipolar Foundations website on Self-harm.
