…is a free book I stumbled upon through iBooks.
The author describes his journey of emotions, feelings, highs and lows of growing up and overcoming the darker times in his life. I’ve only read the first few chapters and it’s already making me feel less alone. Not happier, or even more positive, but somewhere within me I’m hoping that’ll be me soon, coming out on the other side.
He expresses how people have treated him like a lower form of human being, as a joke, as someone unworthy and it is insane how true he is. How people with mental illnesses are treated as a lower class of people.
Let me make this clear, I haven’t been diagnosed with anything and I’m not claiming I have any sort of mental illness, although I am fairly sure I’ve got mild cases of something or other. Maybe I’m just a complete bitch, but I certainly have a lot of anger in me for someone who’s had a pretty amazing life so far.
I just wish more people would speak out, so others didn’t feel so alone.
