I began writing when I was 11yrs old. Mostly poems at that time, about my life experiences and the depression that enveloped me at that tender age.
My life growing up was far from easy and I became an adult long before I should have.
Everyone has a story, some good, some bad, and some downright horrible.
Mine is somewhere in the middle.
I have suffered from depression as far back as I can remember, but the defining point came when I realized I was a separate entity from my parents.
As I have grown older my life has taken many twists and turns, of which I never wanted.
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans”. ~ John Lennon
A series of life events- abuse by strangers, an unstable childhood, divorce, not having custody of my children, suicide of an ex-boyfriend, and my youngest son being physically abused by a despicable man- these are just a few things that helped to mold my mental health.
I suffer from Bipolar 1, Borderline Personality Disorder, and Anxiety.
All brutal and life altering.
I wanted to do a different type of “journal” by opening a blog to get my story out of my head, and help the healing process. And, of coarse, to write poetry.
If you enjoy my writing, Thank You. I appreciate it very much and hope you keep coming back as I add more pieces of my life.
Dialectical Behavior Therapy has been very helpful for many of those suffering from mood disorders.
Education is the key.
