Wow! What an adventure this blog has been already! Thank you all so much for reading, sharing, tweeting and most importantly talking about this blog! I have several reasons for sharing this experience with others, but the most important reason is to start the conversation. AND keep the conversation going!
I have been completely humbled by the number of people who have shared their stories with me in the few short weeks since I started posting. I’m grateful for the discussions and for the openness about the experiences. It has not surprised me that many people who have or are dealing with mental health situations have met nose to nose with the social stigma that is associated with this subject.
This blog has been read by people all over the world from the USA to Australia, Greece, South Africa and most recently Lebanon! I received emails from many who are dealing with similar experiences. This process allows me to continue to share my story and within it, to heal the still healing parts within my own soul. It also allows for me to continue to highlight the need to understand and shift the belief systems around mental illness.
Thank you for reading and sharing in this journey with me.
Please keep this conversation going and feel free to email me your thoughts, ideas or stories to FarfromParadiseBlog@gmail.com.
