I can not tell you how glad I was to be wrong. His show is not only incredibly well acted, but Fox manages to show that he does not have to be judged by his illness, he is just a person trying to look at life (as he puts it in his own words) "through a lens of optimism and humor." He is helping the world breakdown the stigma placed on those with an illness.
Don't be bound by the, ". . . invisible chains of misunderstanding and discrimination. . ." (Mental Health America) that plague most illnesses. Learn about them, find out what you can do to help those with an illness, and those supporting someone with an illness. Take the time to care, because one day it could be you or your family.
