Resiliency to Mental Health Issues
No matter what obstacles you encounter, always remember to reserve your right to privacy. Its usually by past indicators, others feel a heightened sense of stress concerning your condition, as though they know you better than you know yourself, its not by input we avoid struggles in life always, remember its your life to live, be cognizant of your surroundings and connections in life, and remember not to be too controlling over what conversations are had with you, you are always in control of what you have to say, its not your job to control whos speaking to you.
What is right to privacy? Livescience.com describes Right to Privacy, as the following: “The right to privacy refers to the concept that one's personal information is protected from public scrutiny. U.S. Justice Louis Brandeis called it "the right to be left alone." While not explicitly stated in the U.S. Constitution, some amendments provide some protections.” 
Why is privacy so important? When it comes to recovery, whether from alcohol, or from medication abuses, HIPAA protects the hospitalization of people with mental health issues, meaning their issues are not required to be of public knowledge, that is so these individuals can resume their lives, finish degrees, and get jobs, whether you think that means they were mentally ill, the proof is in the work product, school grades, and relationships maintained, are among a few indicators from my personal experiences in life, that I can say, these were isolated incidents drinking (ie singing in public, talking to myself through my problems to my phone, after writing in my phone 2013), and trying to live among, was not conducive to my health, and caused me to think abstractly, not focused on the task at hand such as applying to law schools, and working on applications and studying for an LSAT I took a third time, under times conditions. According to Livescience.com: “Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) protects a person's health information” although my experiences may be different from the experiences of others, I was able overcome a suicide attempt February 2009, resulting from not getting a job where I wanted to work, a separation post fighting with an Ex after drinking, disclosure of information private known only to me and the person to whom I was fighting with over time spent alone with my then companion, and reasons why, and after applying to law schools and not getting in, because of my personal statement which discussed the past, not a present experience that would show that I am not thinking about the past, and someone who moves forward in life, with a 147 LSAT, that was not combined good enough to get me into a top tier law school, nor was being on Deans List in my Undergraduate Institution, remember to turn in your application materials early, and don’t fret about the process too much, you either get in or you don’t, its not a big deal. When you discuss whether you have done drugs in the past, and whether or not you were treated for the abuse of substances, attended rehab, is also part of HIPAA, it seems to give an upper edge to people in life, to know of your troubles, maybe one reason why not to disclose. It’s a very competitive time when it comes to getting jobs, those with the least baggage past, are usually hired, that is because they have no history of mental health issues, or addictions.
