Thank you, Nupoor. I feel mental health seems to be the topic my readers relate to the most so I set the goal to write a story about my personal experience every day throughout the month of August.

Mental health carries a stigma but I’m too open and honest to be stigmatized. I refuse to feel poorly about something millions of people experience.

I hope my stories encourage others to share theirs.
