Blog for Mental Health

I am proud to be part of the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project.

I had seen the Blog for Mental Health badge around, but I want to thank The War in My Brain  for her post about this project.

“I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2014 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.”

I have written a couple of posts about mental illness and my experiences with it.

Shattered Pieces & Kaleidoscopes – about coming out of darkness and feeling more positive

And the Anxiety Hits – self-explanatory, right?

Mental Disorders & Violence – about mental illness in my family and society as a whole

I desire the things that will destroy me in the end. Ya, I get it. – my tribute to Sylvia Plath and her legacy

I have a cousin with bipolar disorder who is also schizophrenic. My mother and a cousin suffer from depression of varying degrees at various times. Other family members experience seasonal depression and I have experienced both major anxiety (for the last 10 years) which requires medication and went through a deep depression last fall. Additionally, my former in-laws both lived with OCD. My family also has various types of addictions scattered around.

I want to leave this post as an introduction to my participation in this Project. I will write more throughout the year about my experience with anxiety and depression. I feel strongly that discussions about mental health should no longer be a taboo so that the people who need help feel comfortable seeking it or their families will help. We’re all in this world together and need to help each other with our needs.
