Hello. My name is Amelia Mims. I do write under a pseudonym for a variety of reasons and wish to be up front about that. I welcome you to my blog and thank you for visiting. My goal is to end stigma and discrimination against those with mental illnesses. I am a Mental Health Advocate and am open about having Bipolar Disorder Type 1. I live a fairly ‘normal’ life, but have certain restrictions, as do those with many other illnesses like diabetes, epilepsy or cancer.
Diagnosis was the best thing that ever happened to me as I now receive the much needed treatment and embrace the lifestyle changes I’m required to live with so I can know stable emotions, employment and a home. I am blessed with a network of loving, supportive family and friends and I credit their acceptance and non-judgement with my wellness.
To those that support the cause, or are just curious, I welcome you to follow me, like my blogs or leave constructive comments.
