- Every survivor needs a life-jacket. This blog is mine. I’ll tell you why.
In May of 2011, after months of working myself into exhaustion over a several-years-in-the-making project (which crashed, hard, and took me as it’s tithe so that others might still have fun), I suffered a nervous breakdown, a major depressive episode, and I admit with a heavy heart that I contemplated suicide. I am here today, surviving, because of the love of those few closest to me, who saw me through the worst of the mind-numbing emptiness and doubt. (Thank you JM, LJ, TP, SM, MJ, and JH.)
Through returning heavily to my storytelling (and creating this blog), I have started the long path to recovery. To loving myself again. To trusting that I can do something and not see it completely shattered. This blog is a project that no one can hurt me with. Even if recovery ends up temporary, I have a duty to myself to get better emotionally and physically.
Just by having you (yes, you!) here and reading, that is helping. I am so happy to bring you something light and fun, especially in the field of Young Adult Literature (which I am intensely passionate about!) If you have enjoyed your time on my page, please… do not hesitate to let me know! You don’t know how much it might mean to me. :)
Thank you so much for visiting!
