Blog for Mental Health 2012
I pledge my commitment to the Blog for Mental Health 2012 Project. I will blog about mental health topics not only for myself, but for others. By displaying this badge, I show my pride, dedication, and acceptance for mental health. I use this to promote mental health education in the struggle to erase stigma.
Thank you, Jen the brilliant and brutually honest creator of Step on a Crack for recommending I take the pledge. We’ve just started reading one another’s work. I feel like we speak the same language and we’re literally in the same neighborhood! I think speaking my truth about my experience with drug addcition, alcoholism, depression and HIV is the only way I get better and hopefully it helps others too. I started using drugs and drinking at age 13 and did not stop until I was 36. I hope all the time spent being an insane hot mess and my recovery therefrom can benefit others. Or I hope I can make them laugh for two minutes. Either way, ur the inspiration, is a success. I hope to continue to get better and to share when I don’t feel so great. So here’s to being miracles of mental health in 2012!
