Mental Illness Awareness Week

This week is Mental Illness Awareness Week.

I started this blog with intentions of writing about my mental illness, but I never really have. I've started at least a dozen posts on the subject but have never had the courage to press the "publish" button. And no, this isn't going to be the post where I break that cycle, but I did want to acknowledge that I've suffered with mental illness for a long time and continue to deal with it on a daily basis.

Okay, that was actually way more than I thought I was going to write about my personal experience. Whew... breathe..... okay, I think I can publish this post. It's good to be honest.

Anyways, I wanted to share some illustrations I found earlier this week that do a wonderful job of sharing how many people live their lives.

Social anxiety and depression are the two mental illnesses I suffer with, but the artist tacked a bunch of them, check out his blog here.
