Michelle knew something was wrong.
That she was “different.”
At times she could not distinguish reality from her troubled thoughts.
She begged her parents to bring her to a professional to get help.
But they were afraid a diagnosis of mental illness would prevent her from getting into a good college or from “finding a husband.”
So, because of stigma, ignorance and fear, Michelle suffered.
Michelle Yang’s story is a powerful and important one,
and an important reminder that recovery does not happen in the shameful dark.
