Why? Well, to be honest, I haven’t been able to find too many personal blogs on the issue and I wanted to start a journal myself. So I thought I’d do it here. And why is it anonymous? Well, there’s still a lot of tabu about the subjects of mental health. I live a (mostly) normal life with my husband, two kids. I have great family and friends, a mortgage, two university degrees and a well paying full time job. And if people knew about my diagnosis, some might treat me differently. Some. To be frank, that’s just old fashioned. But we are conditioned to think and act a certain way by society and norms are norms.
If my little blog can help change this norm and to change the tabu around mental health issues just a little, well, I would be pretty proud. Big hopes for a this little corner of life outside a box.
