Do you know someone that suffers from a mental illness? Have you struggled with bouts of depression or anxiety? Has your mind ever played tricks on you that throw off your reality?
May is Mental Health Month, a time of observance to spread the word about mental health and its affects on our community. My good friend and warrior Abigail Zebrowski is hosting a guest series of writings on her blog, Sidereal Catalyst. The first one is live, and though I’ve never suffered from anorexia or anything close to an eating disorder, I immediately recognized the woman in the mirror with whom Lizzie converses. Body image and issues plague our society and I am honored to share one woman’s story in #hope that others can connect with her battle.
You are not alone. Join us as we celebrate the victories of those affected and become mindful of the battles they face every day. Read Abbie’s blog and perhaps share your own stories to #breakthesilence for #mha.
