This is the best platform I have for reaching many people. Yesterday I shared the news that after fighting Depression and anxiety I finally got a proper diagnosis.
That diagnosis was that I have Bi Polar Disorder. To finally have a proper diagnosis and now a long term health care plan in place is a huge weight off my mind. I now see a light at the end of a dark tunnel.
I want to take this opportunity to thank EVERYONE on Twitter, Facebook for their wonderful messages of support. It’s really uplifting. Many people have ladled me as being courageous for coming out publicly about my mental health.
While that is appreciated I’d just like to say that I don’t see it that way. The reason I done it was to show that it’s ok not to be ok. After 20 years of suffering I would not wish this on my worst enemy. I just want people to know that a broken mind can be worse than a broken leg.
So thank you all for your support and kindness.
