I’m excited to post my very first video for HealthyPlace.com! This one is about how to manage expectations when in recovery from mental illness. I recently figured out that “recovery” does not mean “no longer mentally ill.” This might seem obvious to some people, but for me, it’s been totally life-changing. I don’t need to pretend to be “normal,” I just need to make my life work for me. Magic! I elaborate more in this post (with video at the end!): 3 Tips for Managing Expectations in Recovery.
