Hello there world! Welcome to my blog.
Here in my first blog I am just going to outline what I am hoping to achieve by doing this. I am hoping that I may be able to get rid of some of the stigma in relation to mental illness, especially towards people with the same diagnosis as me… The dreaded borderline personality disorder. I hope that by sharing some of my poetry I can prove that people with mental illness are talented, functioning, productive, likeable, ultimately normal people! We are not the weirdos lurking in the bushes, or the crazy lady throwing cats at passers by, we are just like you! We infiltrate normal society every day, I may be the person sitting beside you right now, tapping away on my iPhone, on a bus, in a queue, in a waiting room. I could be anywhere, anyone and you would never know. A bit scary that, isn’t it?
I do hope that somewhere along the way that people will enjoy reading my poetry and perhaps have a giggle at my little rants. I want people to enjoy reading about mental health, to normalise it and make it approachable. I may fail miserably, but you know what? I am going to give it a lash anyway! Watch this space 🙂
