No, You’re Not Crazy

It only feels that way!

Hi. I’m Adrienne and I have been dealing with mental health issues since I was 14. Currently, I am diagnosed with bipolar II, ADHD inattentive type and anxiety. But always subject to change! I have seen 4 psychiatrists and so many therapists I lost count. I want to provide a safe place where we can share our stories, cry, and laugh together!
