It’s My Life by Bon Jovi

This week’s song of the week was recommended by MIA Reader Mary Dahl: “This song expresses the energy and courage I feel in my psychiatric journey. The lyrics emphasize my desire to define my own psychosis and voices and integrate them into my life in a healthy and vibrant way rather than giving into the system’s habitual gloom and doom medicated way.”

-Mary Dahl
