As the new year passes I like to make a toast to myself for surviving another year. I would like to extend that toast this year. A toast to all the introverts, the depressed, to any facing anxiety, to the outcasts, misunderstood and any dealing with mental illness. You survived another year, we survived another year. I want to tell you that means something.

Another toast to the family and friends, to the experts, researchers and any that cheer us on.
