I had always wanted to be a writer. I didn't actually realise this grandiose thought until writing became my salvation during the worst bout of my illness. I need not delve into the impetus for this burst of expression (there will be plenty of that later trust me!) but needless to say; the urge to express myself in words is what has led to me putting it 'out there' via this blog.
Currently, I am at the end of what really was the worst of the worst of it. Looking back I know that writing kind of saved me and if this 'depressional confessional' goes some way towards helping someone feel that they aren't alone, then it just deepens my mission. The inspirational John Paul DeJoria; said
"Do something to help someone out", really simple words but they have resonated greatly with me.
The Black Rabbit Hole is my intention to you lovely reader, to help you out. This is my declaration to the digital universe to validate all other A&D's out there and say we shall battle our common foe together.
Asthmatics have inhalers, arthritics have canes; A&D's have The Black Rabbit Hole. We are not disabled we are united. In the interim, I shall descend gracefully off my soapbox, put the word swords away and go brew a coffee. Let us both percolate a little until next time.
Thank you for stopping by.
Everybody should feel safe here sharing their thoughts and feelings on these posts and I encourage everyone to BE THEMSELVES!
NB. If you're an a!%hole you can 'hop off' though!
