Lindsay Wheeler is a writer and thought leader on issues of mental illness, challenging readers to consider depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and survival through a new lens. Passionate about seeing dialogues around mental illness become more open and accepted, Lindsay challenges stigma unapologetically, fighting to be heard through radical transparency and searing honesty. Her story offers valuable insight into what owning one's diagnosis publicly can look like, how accepting oneself as a work in progress can translate into survival, and how finding a path to recovery may be the only way to change the world. Lindsay brings an unconventional story of success; a woman who has learned, through fighting the noise that oppresses so many of us, to stay above it and grow in spite of, as well as because of, it.
My writings and communications reflect my experiences only and every situation is different. I am not a doctor and cannot give medical advice or advice about medication, only what has happened to me, which may lead to a vastly different experience for you. If you are depressed, thinking of harming yourself, wanting to start or change medications, or otherwise feel you need help, I urge you to reach out to a doctor or other professional for assistance and advice.
