  1. mental health has been an ignored aspect of general health and I highly appreciate the way Penny Wilson is creating awareness on the issue. Am with you all through and equally as passionate. Any one is susceptible to mental illness.


  2. Oy, I had trouble getting to the comment section, semi challenged in the airhead department, I am. This, oh this writing made my day. It is so easy to go down that black hole, the pit of despair-and your suggestions are right on the money! As a depression, CPTSD sufferer? The one thing that makes me recover quicker than anything else is humor. And actually brushing our teeth (let alone taking a shower) can be the last thing we want to do when we’re spiraling. I love your worked and followed, even though I could swear I already was. Kudos.


  3. Couldn’t be more truthful as to what mental health disorders are. They suck at your whole soul at times. A vicious cycle of highs & lows, each day is somewhat different, and we must fight through it. Thank you for sharing this post!
