Welcome… come stay awhile..
Who am I?
I am your daughter. Your therapist. Your best friend. Your student. Your boss. An adopted child. Crazy illness survivor. Animal lover. Tough as shit advocate. Bartender. Avid shooter. Wanna be comedian. Educator. Musician. Bibliophile. Radio talk show host. Wiper of tears, administrator of high fives and happy dances. I am me, the only me I’ve ever known, Ms. Rebecca Sanity, Licensed Therapist
Its about to get very real
My goal is to make you my dear readers just a little uncomfortable. THAT’S how I know I’m doing my job. I want to teach you about mental health, talk about controversies, share the daily bits, the ugly bits of a real life. This isn’t going to be your mother’s pintrest here folks, no starbucks and knitting patterns, but some real, uncomfortable life stories. Some are going to make you scream, some will make you cry, some will make you laugh your ass off.
I’m here to rattle some chains. If I make you think, if I’m lucky enough to get these words to stick in your brain, I’ve won. Even if it upsets you. If it does, I can handle the heat (I think, ha, with all 2 of my readers, perhaps I’ll be ok!)
I’m writing this waiting for the first person to be pissed about my client stories. I assure you, these stories are all told with love, and I don’t tell these to speak ill of anyone. I just feel that people should really know the trials and tribulations of the mental heath system, and what people really have to deal with on a day to day basis. I am NOT in violation of HIPPA, as the names/identifying information and story has been changed. You don’t know where in the country these people are, and if you crossed them on the street you’d never know it was them.
