Why I Write

After writing a lengthy post I will go over it and over it, scrutinizing my grammar and poor use of punctuation.

I know I use semi colons wrong and throw in dashes and commas where there shouldn’t be any.


BUT, that isn’t why I write.

I write for the millions of people right now suffering from mental health diagnosis that they don’t understand.

To educate those who are still under the impression that the one in four who are affected by mental illnesses CHOOSE to be a part of the stigma that is attached to the illness.

I speak up and out because I want what I am going through to find someone else who is going through the very same thing so they know that they aren’t alone. I want them to know that it’s okay to feel like you are going bat shit crazy sometimes because guess what? It will pass, it will suck, but it will pass.

Because I need to feel connected to those people who I know are out there reading my words and connecting back to me.

I write to bring awareness to this very thing I thought would kill me…

but has only made me stronger.


my post today was inspired by Jessica from Four Plus an Angel (thank you)

    …and most importantly, because this is real and it should be serious. Mental Health rules society, it should be priority in our health care system – worldwide.
