This is an example

I’ve been told and called so many names on social media, get this one, from Facebook:

Did you see her profile, I think she’s got problems, and we shouldn’t engage with her, it’s not healthy for her.

Wow. all that because of mental illness, well, I still have a brain, and I love to get into discussions.



I stay away from social media. I used to be on My Space back in the day and that was pretty cool. But i don’t do Facebook. If i was on there i’d have to be friends with all my family and i really don’t want that.


oh, this is really no big deal

I can handle it

I’m not friends with my family on there

some of these complete strangers have become good friends

they know I’m there for them too.

It’s good that you have friends to support you. As far as the haters go, let 'em hate i guess. We just have to live our lives. Keep on living!

we lose credibility though, don’t we?

I make up for it, but what I learn every day from NPR.

I’m not worried about losing credibility, although that may happen. I don’t have anything to prove to anyone. Maybe when i was younger but not now. Those days are behind me.

I tell my family this too, but still I’ve always had a lot to prove

especially if I was being a good enough parent.

I hope I’m changing the way people view mental illness,

that’s always what NAMI wanted.

Yeah i can see your point. I’m sure you were a good parent. Your kids seem to be happy in the pics you’ve posted. The odds were probably against you, having special needs children but you did it. NAMI is a good organization. Last time i was in the hospital they came and did a presentation of sorts. They have support groups here but i’ve never been. I’ve thought about going though.
