From what my editor told me, this was by far my most popular article—in fact, it was the most popular article for the entire opinion section all year, if I remember correctly (if anyone knows otherwise they're welcome to let me know). Readers told me it struck a chord with them, perhaps because I was speaking from experience. I don't know how to fix most of these problems, even though I somehow managed to fix my own after I wrote this post. I'm no longer on medication, and I'm the happiest I've ever been.
But if there's any way I can help anyone who has a mental disorder, or thinks they do and wants to talk to someone who's been there, please don't hesitate to reach out to me.
