Hi, there. Thanks for visiting. I'm starting this blog as an advocate for mental and physical health. I'm a freelance writer and also own a home based medical transcription business. I was diagnosed in 1978 with paranoid schizophrenia and started to become acutely ill three years prior to that, unmedicated, frightened, confused, and in trouble with the law. I graduated from university with distinction the year I became ill. I've never regretted learning how to think at university. I struggled with my illness for 35 years and have reached the top of the mountain now, I think, or the other side, where the grass is greener and the path easier. There's hope for all of us, the whole human race, and never think there isn't hope or joy no matter your circumstances. I'd love to hear your thoughts and experiences with mental illness in all its forms: depression, brain injury, autism, schizophrenia, bipolar, anxiety disorders, etc. and your positive experiences as well as those lies and half truths society and even therapists would have us believe about ourselves.

We are different folks, and we are beautiful. The whole human race is beautiful. Let's celebrate life.

Welcome Piia!

I'm very happy to see Piia joined my site as a follower. I left a comment on one of your posts, Piia.

I just edited my last post. I think I was too hard on the charity, but I was hurt by their reaction. I think I was naive in thinking anything else of an organization. They perhaps didn't handle the situation well, but they also may not be fully informed.

I'm not afraid to be public but I am also discrete when I have to be.

Discretion is the better part of valor. I remember my mother saying that. She had secrets. I have no secrets. I lived most of my life in fear and insecurity. Perfect love casts out fear. And I'm surrounded so far by loving friends and family. I moderate the comments here because I realize some people who read a blog like this may be very ill. But so far I've not had that problem. However, I'm not getting involved in any forums other than Anne Collins, which has nothing to do with mental illness. This isn't a forum. It's a blog. And all are welcome who believe in the oneness of humanity, respect and integrity. Knowledge and "whatsoever things are true."
