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.

Out of the Sandbox

Saw my psych today. She will take charge of my meds. She said I don't have a problem with boundaries other than within the confines of a delusional illness. I'll get my injections there, too. I'm delighted. She wants to see me once a month indefinitely.


  1. Yaaay! One-stop medical assistance! And you can shop nearby and have coffee or a meal in the same building? This is going to work out great!

  2. Yes, this would make it all worthwhile. All of it.

  3. The important thing is that you're getting the help you wanted and needed. And any way you can simplify your life right now is a real boon. Let me know if I can help in any way. I'm working on getting my car dug out of the ditch and my mailbox dug out and uprighted. Easy stuff, compared to what's on YOUR plate!
