Mental illness may be an invisible illness but the illness is no less real.

Mental illness stole years of life from me. I have been living with a difficult mental illness for twenty five years. The illness I have is so hard to live with. It wasn’t until I took WRAP class that stands for wellness, recovery, action plan. I knew my life had changed the moment I had an experience that was with the divine or God where God caused a supernatural peace to wash right over me maybe five or more years ago. I decided that instead of seeking revenge or returning evil for evil I would say prayers every morning when I wake up to God. I’m an early riser who likes waking up early and brushing my teeth, using my oral rinse and taking a fifteen to twenty minute shower in the mornings when I wake up. I can’t wash my hair too often but every two or three weeks I wash my hair. I went au naturale too. I no longer use hair relaxers. I like braiding my hair the most for a natural hair style.
