Have you ever heard the expression that the crack in the wood that's been fixed with glue is now the strongest joint in the whole piece of wood?  That's what is happening with my fear and confusion from living with mental illness, in particular bipolar and schizophrenia.  I am so clear and not afraid of that stuff anymore, because it is being healed.  I've been through it, not around it.  It all makes sense and I wouldn't trade my experience if I could.  If I could go back, I would never bypass the opportunity to get sick with mental illness.  I am so much better now.  Knowing Jesus has really brought light into my spiritual sickness and I am very thankful for the fact I have a rock to rest on.  Not preaching, but just telling what has happened to me.

Good news.

If I got to be supreme autocrat one day, I would remove all stigma from mental illness. Everyone in my land would have a mental health checkup at least once a year, and treatment would be something people would tell others about cheerfully.

Thank you for speaking up. I wish you many many better days ahead.

So proud of you, Doug.
Like the saying goes, "If it is to be, it's up to me."
Sometimes we all feel that No one loves us when we are down and out.
It's all up to use to decide.
Great decision.
