Living with mental illness is a very big struggle that goes unnoticed because people are either in denial or they just dont talk about it. Anyone living with mental illnesses what are some steuges and your story I would love to hear from you.

I self medicated to deal with my mental illness for years. I believe it made it worse and I never grew as an individual spirituality and mentally. Now that I've been sober for 2 years and on the proper medication I feel much better equipped to deal with it.
