Yes, about 80 percent of mentally ill people do function normally. The good news is that with

proper therapy, counseling, medication, and support, these individuals can maintain healthy

relationships, contribute to society, and engage in meaningful work.

Early intervention I think was key to my recovery. I had had 3 over dozes attempts after Bella was first born do to post partum depression I knew nothing about the kind where you stop caring about yourself and all of your energy time and effort focus on your child.

I think it's a hard thing to experience alone I had the help and support of my family some are pushed aside and brushed off a topic that hushed about because back in the older days it was not something people wanted to address because it different and different is scary.
