Find my superpower to support my husband with mental illness

I have a few other minor superpowers gifted to me on my side kicks, but these are my main ones.
I empty my courage of my secrets, sometimes throw up. I tell my colleagues, friends and family of my struggles with psychosis, sexual abuse and feelings of "insecurity", haunting me. Some believe me. Some do not. Some pity Some want to protect me. But what they don't realize is that none of these matters because I'm my own hero and you are … They are merely my barges. Some of you are Robin to my Batman, and some of you are being dismantled or set aside. Some of you give me gifts of power. Some of you are spilling out of me.

, but that changed a few years later when I developed bipolar disorder , post-traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD ) and a range of -Mental Health -problems.

I am all I need to help me overcome these hard things. It helps that I have support. But in the long run … Is me, who gets the credit for the fact that my episodes become less and less frequent. It is who is honest about my fears. I am vulnerable. I am concerned with these topics. I have a number of supportive people: My husband, my doctor, my therapist, my colleagues and choose family members. They are my advocates, but I am my own hero, because no one can force healing or recovery. I am who gets the credit, and I take that and hold it when I have my episodes. It is up to me.
