Cool Blog of the Week: Living with Multiple Personalities

The Cool Blog of the Week is Living with Multiple Personalities. Cat is the most well-adjusted person with a mental condition I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. She is witty, well-educated, gifted, a mother and a wife. Below she describes her desire to help others by coming out of the closet about her mental condition:

I have a mission - it came to me like a bolt of lightning. My mission has been to open the eyes of others and help them walk down a healthy mental path. Did I say mental? Yes. How many times would you admit to seeing your Dr. for a cold? No issue there…you’d tell others and get some pity here and there…and then you’d take the medicine required to get better, right? Well, how many times would you tell someone you went to your therapist 3 times this week? And that you were placed on medication to make you feel better, mentally? Most would rather die than admit this to others. There is such a stigma placed on mental conditions in this country. So many feel if they admit to taking an anti-depressant, they are admitting they are crazy or something!

Cat has so many talents and interests I cannot list them all. Just know this, if you need a kind word, a friendly note, help with a project, or tea and sympathy... visit Cat. If you really want to make her happy, bring a pen. She has a thing for pens.
