I guess you could say this is a “diary” of sorts.. This is meant to be a therapeutic, as well as enlightening, way of processing the emotions that run through my body and the thoughts that race through my mind.. I’d be glad if only one person began to understand me a little better.. I’d hope that some of those in my life might get a better grasp on what makes me tick, even if I may not immediately understand it myself..
I hope that as you read through my posts you find something that you can identify with, instead of leaving feeling confused and put off.. Either way, I hope that it might give you a glimpse into, and a better understanding of, mental illness (at least as it pertained to me)..
And though mental illness is something that I no longer deal with, I feel that what I went through was not in vain (I learned many lessons along the way) and perhaps my struggles can help someone else to learn how to cope or, at the very least, help someone to feel not so alone in this vast world where it’s so easy to feel forgotten and unimportant..
