The Magic Of Ignorance

Hopefully you could feel the sarcasm I put into that title. If not, Welcome to Out Of My Mind, a Blog where I literally write my thoughts, and try to make them relevant to mental health! So anyways, you have probably (hopefully not) dealt with a lot of ignorant people in your mental health journey,…
