Welcome to The Rebirth of My Life!

Everyone seeks an outlet in some unique shape or form of their choice. Unlike many I think I have found mine. But, of course, I am not going to settle down for this… I think I forgot to mention what this outlet is for me… Okay, so I guess I will share my secret with you. And, please feel free to share this with a friend or two it may help them.

My outlet is writing in a journal form, documenting each thought at the time and date it reveals itself to me. To focus on my thoughts on a deeper level and how I am feeling I also write poetry. Nobody has seen my journal or have read my poetry. This is all going to change with this blog. I’ve finally opened the door to let you all in to explore the intense world I live in and gain insight on the thoughts that scramble in my head. This blog will take you through my mental illness journey and recovery.

So what’s my story? A little piece is in every entry. My full story can be found here.

Disclaimer: I am not a writer.Ā  I use my words and personal experiences to connect with my readers on an emotional level.

My goal is to raise mental illness awareness.

Raise awareness. Stop the stigma. Save a life.

Sending positive vibes your way!

Enjoy!

  1. Thanks for the visit and following! I’m looking forward to our interaction.
    Mental illness is a subject that’s touched my heart and I’ve written poetry about it too. Observing and knowing the signs are important, from the obvious to the very subtle ones. I believe it’s easier to grab ones attention and draw them in with the poetry. Wishing you all the best in your endeavors to reach and educate as many as possible. We trying in our own ways enlighten the masses šŸ™‚ Lulu

  2. The one common thing I assign to my clients is to keep a journal and to write daily. Not only is it an outlet for thoughts and feelings. But it also allows them to see patterns and connections and discover those things they would like to work on.

  12. Yes! I’m happy to see someone else journaling their feelings on rough days. It seems like this has been very helpful for you. It has been for me as well. I do not have a mental illness, but I have always had tendencies similar to Asperger’s Syndrome. So, I have become a mental health advocate as well. It great to see someone else fighting the stigma. I look forward to reading your blog.

  13. I can understand with your need. I often write in order to examine and explore my humanity and its emotions in full. I like to say that I write just for myself, and sometimes that is true. But other times, having someone like it, understand it and offer perspectives is the best kind of validation. It’s better than any other kind of compliment, as for me — words draw forth directly from the soul.

  14. Hi Phoenix, Thanks so much for the follow. It means a lot to me. šŸ™‚ Although mine is still in her infancy, I’m hoping to have many more resources and articles posted soon. It’s horrible that so many things come out of left field that keep it from happening sooner.

    Have a great night. I’m going to explore for a little while. Eva

  15. Thanks the like. Isn’t writing it all down a great therapy? I tried a counselor once: it didn’t work out for me. I could see through the tools she was using to ’empathise’ and didn’t feel any sincerity. I started writing my blog and felt so much better. I’ve found that a private journal only good so far before I stop. But a public, but anonymous, blog allows me to get it all out of my head, with a potential audience gives me a reason to write, and that feedback that is so important to help you feel like your not alone.

  16. Thank you for your efforts to raise awareness concerning mental health. Hopefully the more of us our there that do this, the more we make an impact on reducing the stigma associated with something not seen or understood all that well by laymen.

  17. Have you ever thought of performing poetry live? I did that for a few years and it was so exhilarating on so many levels. being in a room with minds who see things the way you do was an outlet I still crave.
