Back in August, I was interviewed for the online magazine, “Like Minded Magazine” that showcases the many stories of “like minded” individuals who combat their mental illness everyday. In this issue of the magazine, I discuss of course myself, how I live with anxiety and depression, treatment being an African American living with mental illness and of course my blog. I also provide many national and international sites for those living with mental illness.
What I like about the magazine, was it put a “face” to mental illness. Too often, society thinks that people who live mental illness are “mentally deranged” and use it to account for violence as seen on the news. However, that’s not at all true. Many of us are just as “normal” as the next person…we just happen to live with mental illness.
I was to show this last year, but I had so much things on last August, it slipped my mind. Anyways, here’s a snippet of my interview with “Like Minded Magazine”.
