It’s occurred to me that, if I’m going to write about my experiences with mental illness, there’s just no getting around a full disclosure of my history of substance use. Gulp.
I maintain that my drug use has not been the cause of my mental illness(es), as my first signs of delusional thinking and paranoia predate my initial experimentation. However, there is an obvious association.
The fact of the matter is, I cannot tell my story without mentioning the drugs that I took along the way. I just hope that the good that comes from sharing my experiences outweighs any possible negative consequences.
