I’ve recently returned to blogging after a two-year absence, due to depression, which this time really knocked me out.
When I started blogging on this platform back in 2012 I did chart some of my mental health issues but tended to write those in the third person, or you could say not dealing with my problems, now in recovery I’ve decided on a much more direct approach in charting my journey back to health.
I have also had to deal with the issue of homelessness which I have not really talked about here, but can assure you the posts are coming, I had a double whammy so I really only want to deal with one thing at a time,
This space is my head spill, where finally I can let my thoughts out and try to put the last two years into perspective in continuing to move forward, so forgive me if my thoughts appear jumbled and repetitive, being so long without clarity of thought, I don’t always remember the order of what happened,
As I move forward, I find that writing about my depression and subsequent health issues helps me a great deal, it’s cathartic, and also reading those that I follow, to see their journey/struggle with the same issues makes me appreciate how far I have come, and hopefully I’ll see many others safe return to life.
I will eventually move to other blog topics as I did before being a naturally curious person I soak up everything and have constant questions which keeps my mind active and helps me to maintain an interest in what’s going on in the world.
I have my own style of writing which might not be an attention grabber, but like to think I’m actually across a table talking to you so please fill in the gaps if the conversation starts to lull with your questions and comments, interaction is important especially when you have been locked in an invisible illness, it’s the secretiveness that stops your basic human interactions.
I’ve found many new blogs and always looking for more I may not comment at first just read to get a feel for the writer and of course like what they say, I have been moved to tears many times over the last month, and the supportive comments I’ve received have warmed me and made me grateful that so many understand.
Please comment on any post you like I enjoy interaction, and the different perspectives on Mental Health.
