Mental illness can rock you to the core. It can strip you of everything you think you are. One of the things I learned at recovery college is that our identity is rooted in our values. Throughout all this my values never changed. Even though I did crazy things, I was still motivated by love for my family. I didn’t really change … it was the way my brain processed things that changed and that changed my behaviour. I’m still me.
