Heather Cunningham fell ill at the age of 21, while pursuing a career as an opera singer. During the course of her illness, she was seen by more than 40 doctors, and put on at least 10 different medications. At different times, she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and obsessive-compulsive disorder. Personality disorder is Heather Cunningham's latest diagnosis. Heather's life has been one filled with labels that accompany mental illness, and the stigma associated with them. Ever since she fell ill, Heather has been struggling to fit back into mainstream society. But she's found that the evolving nature of her diagnoses, and people's attitudes towards mental illness, has made fitting in difficult. This is Heather's story: how she's come to terms with labeling, and her hopes that people will stop fearing mental illness, in order to see the person she really is.
