Millions of people struggle with mental illness everyday. Most don't talk about it. Most are afraid of being torn down for it. They go by quietly, not saying a word in fear that their illness will lead to nonacceptance from others. The lucky ones can control it. Many can't. My mother is one of the lucky ones. The strong ones. She fought her demons her whole life, and found a way to win. The demons never quite go away, but she found out how to keep them locked up, where they belong.

This is a self help guide, showing how she fights her battles everyday.

I can't express how proud of her I am.
