I don't know the first thing about mental health. I don't know what it is I am doing. I don't know the names for anything. I am stumbling around in the dark, groping for something solid to hold on to. I don't need all the lights to come on at once, but I hope I can bump into some people in the dark that will hear my stories.
Is it really important to find out what is going on with my mind or can I learn strategies that work for me and not have to look at the monsters by the clear light of day? Is specific diagnosis crucial?
