Post #42: Being Completely Normal Living With a Mental Illness

Paul Heroux

Today I would like to share a lovely article by State Representative from Massachusetts Paul Heroux. I know nothing about Representative Heroux or his politics. I don’t even know if he is a Republican or a Democrat, but I personally don’t think that matters. He shares a story of a woman who has struggled with bipolar disorder and this puts a human face on an otherwise impersonal label. It is time we see the people behind the diagnosis.
