I love this piece. I have a nice dose of anxiety to go along with my depression so the experiences outlined in it resonated with me. However, the intro to the piece is really, really, really important. Those of us who can be open not only help ourselves, we help destigmatize mental illness. We try to show those with mental illness that they are not alone and others do grok. We try to show those without mental illness just how incredibly brutal and debilitating it is. We try to sow compassion and understanding.
