the speech: I am NOT my mental illness.

"Nobody should ever have to feel like crap about struggling with something. And nobody is worthy of more or less respect than anybody else -- especially because of a diagnosis."

 

Friends -- here it is! Finally! Thanks for being patient -- video editing is not my thing. A couple of weeks ago, Wofford asked me to come speak to a group of students in response to my "I am NOT my mental illness" blog, which you can read here if you missed it. And if you don't want to watch the whole thing, the ending is the best part (last 6-ish minutes?) 
 
But yes. This is the beginning. More actual updates coming soon. 
Happy October, and HOORAY for things going viral on Facebook.
