WOW. 15000!!! That’s a whole lot of people. Thank you all so very much. I can’t tell you what it means to me that people are actually listening to what I have to say.
I hope you will continue to enjoy my work. I’m slowing down. Less depression means less poetry. But I will still keep you all updated.
Now I want to try something a little different. I want to tell some other people’s stories. Stories about mental illness, about needing help. About getting it.
About life and all its beautiful ugliness.
I want you to message me. Tell me what you want to hear about, know about, ask about. Ask my advice if you want it. Or just my opinion. Use me just for someone to talk to.
And if you want your story spread, I will try and help.
I’m trying to be a force for change. A person who shows the world that a mentally ill person can still be of value. I want to shed light on what so many have suffered and died from in isolation.
I’ve given up my privacy, and I have nothing to show for it. I can’t get a job because everyone who googles me just sees a crazy person.
But I am so much more than my illness. And so are you. So unite with me. Together lets create a light that can shine on all the dark corners of our minds.
Tell me your stories. Let me tell them to others. Let us enlighten the world about mental illness.
