About a week ago, I had a guest post go up on Sarah Fader’s blog Old School/New School Mom for something she started called Stigma Fighters.
With this series, she’s created somewhere for people with mental illness share their stories and fight the stigma that surrounds it. There is nothing wrong with having a mental illness. Lots of people do and we live normal lives. Just look at the list she has of everyone who has bravely submitted their story to her blog. And that’s not where it ends. ANYONE who wants to can send her their story too. I encourage you to do so!
I felt so good after putting myself out there and sending her my story. Sure it was scary, but to see how many other people are doing the same thing (anonymously or with their name) is absolutely amazing.
I’m so proud to be one of her Stigma Fighters, and I hope you will be one too!
