The Morning After

"There's got to be a morning after 
If we can hold on through the night 
We have a chance to find the sunshine 
Let's keep on looking for the light"  Maureen McGovern

The Craziest Thing I’ve Ever Done

What's the craziest thing you've ever done?

When this question is asked to a person with mental illness be prepared for something unusual. People who suffer from psychiatric disorders such as bipolar disorder or schizophrenia, sometimes have very poor judgment or low inhibitions. That is they will do things without a care, that most people wouldn't ever dare venture to attempt. One thing from my life, that jumps out right away, would be hitch hiking across the...
