I am a mental health individual and I wish the problem with mental health issues with the country be address with professional doctors and hopsice care.

I believe that mental health issues doesn't neccessarily have to be disabiling if caught in the beginning stages. It needs to be given a treatment with medicine, diet, exercises, inconjunction with soul searching, with a strong will to go forward in life. In order to reap the best reward, an individual needs to avoid the will to give up on theirselves, and to believe that nothing else can help you. A doctor can see into a person thoughts patterns unless he or she reveals it to him or her.

I needed to understand the medical aspect of it, before I can accept it, against the bad press, the shame, and, disrespect among my peers.

During the darkest hour for me was when I was told that I had half a mind for thinking after I reached dean's list in school. I needed money, therefore I went to school hoping the medicine will work strong enough to allow me to work again. I reach International Honour Society, Phi Beta Kappa, Therefore, I knew that I had to believe in myself not in people, because they will fail you all the time.
