Not up for a lengthy essay today but I did want to tell y’all about something that happened today. Through an interaction on social media, I was forcefully reminded about the stigma surrounding mental health. I was distressed quite a bit about this. It hit harder because it came from a person that I’d never thought would cotton to such an idea. It floored me, frankly. I’m still kinda reeling from it.
What it’s done, however, is to make me more resolved in speaking out about my condition, sharing resources and letting folks know that they are *not* alone! I got your back! You have value and worth and there is support out there. There is help available. It is not a character flaw!
The second thing I wanted to mention was that, well, I did it! I created an Etsy shop! Woohoo! DragonWolfCrafts. Now all I need to do is fill it with stuff for folks to buy.
Thanks and have a happy week!
