A Shout Out for Psychiatric Survivors

Words can’t describe how much it means to me when the fellow survivor steps away from whatever personal hell they’re trudging through to drop me an encouraging word.

I met a lovely psychiatric survivor several months ago who sent me this:

and I just had to pass it along to the rest of you.

Fellow survivors, you are my heroes.

You inspire me.

Thank you for being there.

Thank you for fighting you daily battles.

Most people will never fathom the hell you all have been/go through.

Few may ever even know what it takes to be the amazing person you are despite of all you struggle with.

It’s a privilege for me to say that I do.
