I write about mental health issues, my recovery from the same including my eating disorder, and philosophical questions that interest me. And, sometimes I write about my cat. Occasionally, there is bad poetry though as I get older, I notice I’m poetic less often. Apparently, that’s a thing. Like mathematics, the best poetry work apparently shows up in your early adult years.
I’ve struggled with my mental health for most of my life and though I’m currently working on my recovery from my eating disorder, I have nearly four decades of experience there too. I’m trying to learn to live with my issues, trying to learn to believe that I am more than my issues.
I like to write. It’s something I’ve always done. It makes me feel lighter; it helps to unburden yourself, even if the recipient is only a blank page. Plus, writing often helps me think, learn, and come to interesting conclusions.
Having a blog and thus a commitment to post is a good thing. It helps me to stay in the now, it keeps me accountable, and it produces a tangible result I can point to and say “see, this is mine. I did this.” I generally post four times a week.
Thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. Please feel free to comment or follow my semi-regularly updated page on Facebook.
