I’ve been thinking

I’ve been thinking a lot lately. About life in general and about mental illness. About watching yourself and making sure you take care of your own mental health. About watching out for your coworkers, friends, and family. About making sure they all take care of themselves. I’ve been of the opinion for a long time […]
