stockvault-climbing-the-hill118619Validation is a rare commodity in mental illness.

There are no blatant physical markers to announce your condition to the world. No x-rays to show your bit of brokenness to doubters.

Symptoms are met as complaints. Responses vary from a roll of the eyes to a “Cowboy it up!” Dismissal then follows.

My 45th birthday is Saturday. If I can’t have a New York Times best-seller, maybe I could have a spot of validation instead?… Just a thought from a mad woman.

Until tomorrow…

  1. OMG this is so true and I’m so happy you wrote this. People feel validation doesn’t matter that it’s not important and it is literally a life line for those who are depressed! Well done for this! And I believe in you also my friend.
