    Beautiful beautiful blog. So much stigma on mental illness and so little government funding. The masses are still either afraid to reach out for help or afraid to talk about it or misdiagnosed. Things like this add light to it be it broken light in shattered pieces I honestly commend and am so touched by this blog..ty
