❝You're fine, just think positive.❞
    ❝Get over yourself, it's all in your head!❞
    
    This's a collection of short pieces inspired by people with mental disorders, aiming to raise awareness against stigma. I write this not only as a psychiatrist, but also as a patient. 
    
    The first story in this book is mine.

    Important note!
    
    This book tackles some sensitive topics like suicide, self-harm, eating disorders and addiction. However, the main focus is how characters think and feel and how it inevitably reflects on their behavior.
    None of the chapters in this book is graphic, but I thought I'd give you a heads up or a trigger warning just in case.

So important to raise awareness, and keep dialogue open about these issues. Well done.

Hey Sara! I love your idea of writing about people with mental illneses, can I message you about mine and see whether it fits to be posted on your story? Thank you :-)
