Introduction to Mental Illness. The Brutal Truth.

May 21st, 2018

So someone in your family just got diagnosed with a severe mental illness. Let’s call him Adam.

I should mention. I’m not a doctor. I’m mentally ill. This is my experience. Whatever medical waiver I need to declare to not get sued for my personal advice. Consider this it.

First, let me say this flatly. If you think this is a life threatening emergency, stop reading and Dial 911.

I’m. Not. Fucking. Kidding. (Yeah, I know, I know. I used bitch tone. This is nothing to play around with)

Your Friend Is Being Abused.

November 28th, 2017

CN: Emotional, Physcial, Sexual Abuse

I was asked how to get a friend out of abuse. Having been emotionally and sexually abused from 2004-2007 I had some idea. I got away, I fought my fight. But I know what helped me escape.

The individual clasped onto me when I first sought treatment for bipolar, and took advantage of my weakened state to sink his claws into me. Then he did what all abusers do. He groomed me.

Welcome to a sick world. If you want to help, you need to know what you are up against. But I do have answers for you. Be Patient.

Trump supporters here is your bridge you’ve been asking for.

November, 30th 2016

No I’m not tricking you. You are asking for discourse so I’m offering it. You see I understand there were many single reasons to vote for Trump, just as he has a few “character flaws” that I’ll get back to.

Now I know we’ve been angry, I’ll explain why later. Right now this about you. Specifically the people about to get hit hardest. The people most Democrats want to help but haven’t been able to. And I know any facts about tied hands will do me no good. This is your life at stake. I understand.

Write Every Day? I wish

Why the advice to write every day comes from a position of privilege. (And why some writer’s “don’t read”)

July 15th, 2016

If you can, I agree, write every single day. It’s better for your mental health, and you need to invest thousands of hours of writing time to get the skills to produce something average, let alone great. But some of us aren’t that lucky.

Blog, large scale reboot

Shit I forgot to date this. June, 2016

I am dropping all my blog content in the name of progress. I've changed, now must it. I've learnt a lot over the past two years, mostly in ways that I've been wrong. So this no longer reflects my views. Instead of just trashing the whole thing though, I will be (not today) reintroducing many of the topics with whole new posts that reflect what I have learnt.

So that's that, just a project of self improvement reflected on the page. I will update the blog eventually with new content.
