Clearly there are loads of inconvenient, upsetting and frankly painful things about having a complicated relationship with your brain (I believe some people call it "mental health problems" but it sounds a bit restricting to me).
But do you know the best thing? For me anyway, but only because I've amended my attitude.
They say "youth is wasted on the young" and I think anyone over 22 will agree with that. But I'm 38. I'm just learning things that "the normals" learned 30 years ago. How to play nice, share, wait your turn, that I'm a valid human being with valid feelings and opinions and that each and every one of us can make a difference.
What booby prize have you been given?
I love mine.
