I am a Mental Health Advocate for mental illness Stigma. In 2007, I created the "Living in Stigma" blog, with the purpose and anticipation of educating people about mental illness. Depression is part of this illness, which intertwines with those struggling with PTSD, chronic pain, and other invisible illnesses. I am a chronic migraine sufferer myself, and a sexual and emotional abuse survivor. My passions are writing, poetry, and art. All abuse Survivors are also Warriors.

  1. This quote is sooooo powerful! As our treatments evolve, the haze of being consumed with an emotion and mental illness we are able to see how our pain helps us live. This is a perfect example of self-discovery.


    1. You’re welcome! I thought those words up thinking I really did learn something from my past even though I was that frightened little girl. She taught me to acknowledge my strengths, not my weaknesses. You’re so right, it is self-discovery. So many times we put ourselves down. You are wise!! 🙂
