My goal has been to be on the other side of the hospital walls - on the outside looking in.

I t’s a whole new world, I never thought I would be back at a mental unit. I have to say it was overwhelming when the door clanged behind me. Then I had to realize that I wasn’t staying there, I was walking out.

I’m not better than the people in there. I just have chosen to live and I figured out how to not let the label of my mental illness be the death of me. I let people in. I let the doctors in and I let them figure out what medication works for me.


I let my family know how I was planning to live and how I needed their help to be a healthy me. I found meetings. I found healthy ways to love and laugh in my life.

To my readers having a bad day... you can do the same! I’ll help you! I can’t wait to be a peer advocate to help others live.
