Brutally Honest Part 2: Therapy and Psychiatry

In my last post I talked a bit about what getting help for mental and emotional health can look like. In my next installment, I’m going to talk about the “Happily Ever After”. Or, as I like to call it, the  “Oh my goodness this sucks wait it’s not that bad I’m feeling so much…
