Last night I was attacked by an anonymous troll on my personal website.
It sickens me to think that some people in this world are out to ruin other people's happiness and improvements. What I have done in and with my life in the past 24 months has been the toughest, yet most rewarding struggle I have ever been through, and people like this don't get to negate, minimise or trivialise my experiences.
I want to use my experience in recovery to help others undergoing similar disenchantment and disadvantage. Shame on the people who are so insecure about themselves and so jealous of others making a difference in the world.
I would, however, like to extend a thank you to this person, for allowing me to realise that doubters just don't know, they don't understand, and they don't have any control in how you develop and advance.
That doesn't make it any more acceptable, and I hope that this kind of behaviour is continually challenged and countered to break down the stigma that sits beside living life alongside a mental illness diagnosis.
