For myself, I used to think mental illness was linked with serial killers, so the very notion that I might have mental issues was absurd. I'm not a serial killer. My search history might disagree, but I'm a writer.
Maybe if you're like me, you have many scenes disconnected and needing something to connect them all. I'm a very linear thinker, so I need to know what comes next or else nothing gets done.
When you have that story or picture of what you want to make, don't share it with everybody you know. This is extremely difficult with social media demanding that we share everything we ever do.
