I apologise for my brief absence from this blog, I haven’t been very good have I? Basically I’ve been a very busy bee, with my head playing all sorts of tricks on me lately. I’ve not really been sleeping so I have gotten quite ill over the past week. I don’t know if it’s all linked but it might be and that sucks. So I’m writing my book. Well, one of the many. This time I want it to be about something close to my heart or subconscious this time. I love writing fiction but with my brain doing its usual and with the recent death of Robin Williams I thought I should put my experience with mental health into words and let people tell their stories too. So I’m starting to write down what happens with me and if you want to get involved please do. I’ve set up an email account firstname.lastname@example.org and if you have ever experienced mental health disorders first hand, second hand or even if it’s just a story you were once told about mental health disorders it would be massively helpful to me for my book. If you are okay with me possibly publishing your story, under a pseudonym obviously, then I would appreciate you letting me know in the email that you are okay with this. If not, not to worry, it is all research at the least.
I know this is shorter than usual but I don’t want to deter from the information I have given you above.
For now I will leave you with this fact…
1 in 4 people in Britain suffer from some form of mental health disorder. This is mainly anxiety or depression.
It’s okay not to be okay.
