Let me say this.
When I think of a doctor’s appointment, and the drive is 1-hr each way…and I’m excited to have that time alone (again, I am talking about driving to see a doctor) …I’m guessing I need to get out on my own a little more often.
Sensory overload can be a real problem. I just need everyone and everything near me to hush. Like immediately. Even myself!
Yeah. I’ll pencil that into my oh-so-empty calendar.
Here’s my promise to you. Each of you. Directly. Even if you don’t know of someone with a Mental Health issue, a bullying issue, teens with severe anxiety, depression, and so much more not listed here, you will still be affected by it in some way during your lifetime.

Nature vs Nurture, a topic.
A tough watch about a teen who was bullied and eventually shot fellow students at school, but full of interesting studies and findings, that will one day hopefully help find a solution. We cannot as a society ignore these issues. They suck, but we’ve got to do what we can.
Don’t feel you can watch? Google the subject. There are also juvenile justice issues and mental illness involved.
