Mind Over Matter

Dear Reader,

This post is probably going to be quite long, it’s also probably going to be a little bit boring for long time readers as I need to recap. But it has been a long time and quite a lot has happened in the last three weeks.

Now What’s Wrong With Me?

Dear Reader,

So, I’ve been struggling to get this out. To be honest I’m still struggling now and I feel like I am talking nonsense. or I don’t know. But I read this post over at Walking After Midnight and it made me realise that sometimes It’s ok to just say something, even if you don’t really understand it.

I have had the weirdest 5 days. I have not been myself and whilst I feel its not the first time I have felt this way. It’s been strange for me because this time I have taken much more notice of my sudden behavioural change.  Continue reading

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
