As today’s ‘Act Of Brave’ requires a public statement of commitment, I am going to start this post with some selfless promotion. There’s nothing more public than social media right now and as I am all over it, I have put together a handy list of all my profiles that you can FIND HERE. Please come on over and find me on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook as I will totally appreciate it and maybe even flash you a smile.

Woah! It’s been ages!
I mentioned in my last post that I was undergoing a medication change and that much is true. I will also tell you that I have felt every long second of that medication change and in fact, I ended up putting my mind and body through three big changes in the end.

Silencing yourself when it comes to something you or someone you know is facing becomes isolating and dangerous. It breeds ignorance and prolongs suffering.
But why would you speak up when the Stigma stings so much?
