For a long time, I never talked about my conditions. There is still a lot of stigma around mental health issues so when I was growing up in the 90s, it wasn't something you talked about. It took until my early 30s before I actually started to admit to people what I was going through. I've even written pieces about suffering with anxiety. To continue to raise awareness about mental health issues, I believe talking about it and sharing personal experiences are important. So, let me tell you about coping with SAD.
Recently, I've had several people ask me if I'm on Patreon which ends up with a lot of back and forth questions, I thought I'd make it a blog post. This way I cover questions I've been asked and explain my current position.
