Finding Resources

First and foremost, I do not consider myself a writer. I do write. I write for myself. I write for others, who may enjoy seeing a small peek into someone’s head to find that they are not the only person with struggles, emotions, etc.

I have been using a web site called {Feedly} to keep up with the many blogs I have begun to follow over the past several months. Since Google ended its support for Google Reader, I needed something to keep all of my many blog feeds organized so that I could read them easily and save or share posts of interest.

I wanted to share a few things I have found. These are posts that say the things that I cannot and say them quite well, in my opinion. Whether you are trapped inside this pit and struggling to pull yourself back out or whether you are leaning over the top of the pit with your arm outstretched trying to pull the person at the bottom up, these are a few must reads.

Also, the following link is an article describing the ever-common stigma associated with mental illnesses in general. Just because someone doesn’t look sick, doesn’t mean that they aren’t. This goes for all “invisible illnesses.”

I am so thankful that I have found many valuable resources and articles that have really helped me to understand what I am going through a lot more. I’ve always had a hard time understanding myself in general, but seeing someone else put the feelings that I am having into perfect words somehow relaxes me. I am able to take a deep breath and realize that I am not the only person on this planet who thinks and feels the things that I do. That it isn’t my fault. That I won’t be broken forever and that I can be fixed.

In the future, I may share more blogs that I have followed.
