Hit Me Like A Freight Train

Dear Reader,

I believe in my last post I explained how my therapy had finished and the therapist suggested I go back to my doctor. I think I also explained how I was nervous about that appointment because I didn’t really know what to say besides what I had already said to him on previous visits. Well, I had my appointment and have some good news! Continue reading

Sorry It’s Been So Long

Dear Reader,

So it really has been quite a while since my last post, and I think its been good for me. You see a lot has happened, good, bad etc. But it means that I finally feel I have something useful and interesting to say to you all. So I’ll be gradually telling you about my last few weeks, over the next few posts.

A Mental Health Newspaper.

Dear Reader,

I want all my fellow mental health writers to help me out.

I have started a newspaper on the site paper.li

For anyone who hasn’t heard of it, it draws news feeds and creates an “edition” every day.

I thought it would be a great way to get other mental health writers not only find each other, but for other people to learn about mental illnesses.

What I would like is for anyone who wants to be part of it to let me know. You don’t have to do anything, or write anything extra. Just keep blogging the way you do. I will add your blog posts to the newspaper and each day a new edition of the paper will be published with 24 hours worth of posts.

Each post will link directly back to your blog.

I really want this to work, I really want to teach people and help people learn about mental illness.

So just let me know in the comments if you want to help 🙂

I have been getting to work feeling my usual pensive self, but before I know it I’m acting like everythings ok again. And then I realise what I am doing and I get really annoyed at myself. Because I am not happy. And I do not want to pretend I am anymore. Continue reading
