Total Rip-off Tuesday

Still thinking and praying, praying and thinking, but had to share this wonderful post:

Why I blog about mental illness and trying to be pathetically brave:

I have found it difficult to talk openly about this recently, because of the pernicious tactic of using my mental health issues against me.
It’s something that has been happening online with increasing frequency lately, and I’m not here to cite examples, blame folks, engender sympathy, or anything like that. Suffice it to say the general tone seems to be one of attempting to discredit me, because I have mental health problems.
I’m posting this to simply share my struggle with you – especially for you praying types – and to in a sense try to embolden myself, remind myself why I do this, and to say publicly that I will never EVER  respond to such comments, emails, DM’s and so on.
Many of you have shared with me your own personal journeys and struggles and it’s for you guys – as well as for myself – that I do this.
