 For the life of me, I haven’t a clue on where I got more than half  of these pictures from. I just sorta choose ones that inspire me in my own quest to recovery (and could happen to be my favorite celeb). As you know, I do my best to credit the organization and news sites that I get my information or picture from. Believe me, I wish I got all that information on my own, but I didn’t. Though the site information I could salvage (because I bookmarked them), I put them down here. However, there are links below that can give you further insights on your favorite celebs and how they have managed their mental illness.
