Why I write
Three people who should have protected and loved me, abused me instead. I’ve been a drug addict, alcoholic and down on the curb. I survived and learned to thrive. I started the blog to talk about my experiences. Hoping to rid myself of the scars & shame of abuse. As I talked to bloggers it was clear many struggled with mental illness. I have Treatment Resistant Bipolar Disorder, diagnosed at 19 years old. I knew how mental illness had knocked me down and the consequences. As people left comments, I became encouraged to share more about my mental illness and help anyone who would take my hand.
I started writing journals as a pre-teen, started a newspaper ( The Tumble Weed Connection) for the private school (jail) I attended. I wrote for High School newspaper and City of Irving covering Sports. Writing and music took me away from my problems. I blog sharing my thoughts openly. Thank you for visiting and leaving your comments. A special thank you to my followers. XO M
