Not normal is the new normal. Issues around mental health affect us all. Write a story about your own experience or someone you care about.
We all have a story. I know because my family has just been through this.
I know every person has a story because I am stopped on the street every day and told about someone else's experience.
I am also ignored by many who find it too hard to cope with and don't know what to say.
We have been overwhelmed with kindness by a few and forgotten by those who still believe one should just "get on with it" and find it all to shameful.
Thank god for the ones around us who "get it"...
and we are still here through all the trauma and heartbreak....
so that makes us magnificent.
As we tell our children "We are titanium"and that's our song.
