MENTAL ANGUISH FITNESS

Since my early teens I have battled major chronic mental illness.  I did not understand that I was mentally ill until my late 20's.  My life was chaos and will forever be chaos.  Yet, out of that chaos I have ended up with 3 wonderful, understanding daughters. 

Since I have schizophrenia, O.C.D./anxiety and major depression - I have accepted that I will never get better.  Yet, I can still have/deserve a life. Since the young age of 41. :) I have been in over a hundred cycling races. Recently, I have taken up bodybuilding and competitive arm wrestling. 

My message is simple: To others that are mentally ill - find something you are passionate about and peruse it. We are living a different life than others.  We do not need to be rich or famous. In a way we are blessed because we can peruse our dream.

The reason why I put myself out in the world is an attempt to end the stigma of mental illness.  It is horrible when others - including family - think of me as the same as a mass murderer - someone whom would go and shoot people.

I find it sad that people are still comparing someone that struggles to do the best they can given their limitations to someone that does evil. :(

My goal is to fight this awful stigma!
