Anonymous: I am an advocate because I am a recovered alcoholic with Bipolar II, anxiety disorders, and BPD traits. I want to connect with others who have mental illness through writing and discussion of our issues.
A place of inspiration for those with mental illness from someone who understands. I’ve always used writing as a form of mental health therapy. I journal, blog, and write poetry mostly. I am a happily married, middle-aged mom of two school-aged children. My mental illnesses and debilitating migraines leave me unable to work outside of the home. I have been sober for over 9 years thanks to the grace of God.
