Mental Illnesses: Perspectives From The Mentally Ill

I’m working on putting together a new page on the site. This is for people with mental illnesses to describe their understanding and their experience of mental illness. I want to cover at least:

Depression, Bipolar (I and II), Borderline Personality Disorder, Adult ADHD, and Fibromyalgia.

A person on ProBlogger thought of this. A page to describe mental illness in a personal way, rather than a behavioral diagnostic of webMD. Not to disparage webMD by the way. They provide a good service. But they don’t have a personal description. They don’t have implications the illness has on everyday life.

We need that. The world needs that. The mentally ill and those who are not need that.

Message me at

with a story. I won’t necessarily post them, but if I do I will not edit them. By that I mean the person will tell their own story as they see it. Editing the work would make it partially mine, and not fully theirs.
