The Torn Open Book with Sparkly Pages

I have always been open about my mental illness, especially my experiences with psychosis and paranoia. I can't see any reason why not to. It is scary when attacks happen, but I find it somehow alleviating to the soul to share what's going on with me, or tell someone about it, in retrospect. It's amazing on what openness can do to other people — some laugh, thinking I'm just joking; some find it surreal and can't imagine I would have such eccentric phenomena really occur.
