“I told her once I wasn’t good at anything. She told me survival is a talent.”

-Susanna Kaysen

Welcome to Survival is a Talent, a blog founded by me, August. I started this blog as a part of my journey to recovery after I was diagnosed with a mental illness in the spring of 2015. After a year of shame and bitter feelings, I decided to embrace who I am. Despite stigma and the advice to keep my diagnosis to myself, I started a blog to share my story. I wrote about some of my deepest secrets and darkest symptoms in hopes that others might understand. The more I wrote, the less alone I realized I was. I thought I was alone for years, but I never was and neither are you.

Over the past year and a half, Survival is a Talent has become a safe place for individuals with a mental illness to share their stories of survival. This site is a community of acceptance, especially for those with a “scary” mental illness. It is a place to educate those who might just be coming to terms with their diagnosis. It is a place to enlighten those who might have the wrong ideas. We write about our lives to process our intense and sometimes debilitating emotions. We write to survive and “survival is a talent.”
