Dear Mental Illness

This is just a quick on the go post, but I found a website last night that I just had to share with the world.

It’s Dear Mental Illness and it spoke to my heart so much. It’s a place for people dealing with mental illness, either personally or through a friend/family member, to vent all their feelings in a letter to their mental illness. It was heartbreaking and empowering to read about others dealing with mental illness and how they are working through it.

I even wrote a letter to my depression. And the honest truth is that it was so satisfying to write. Something about personifying my depression as an evil villain and then having the freedom to tell him just exactly how i felt about his role in my life, was astoundingly comforting and empowering.

As I told my depression last night, I am going to royally kick it’s ass. :)

Real gold fears no fire,
