hose of us in the mental illness community all have an origins story, and mine is no different. My journey began at twenty-two, but in truth, this journey starts at the beginning when my symptoms first started to take shape. It is easier to look back on it now because those early memories are hard to forget.

How much pain that I put my mother threw on a daily basis. The people no longer a part of my life. How I could not remember a happy moment in four years. My soul was all but gone, the flame barely illuminated. I made the decision to live right then and there, I haven’t looked back since.
It was a tough week, but there were some positives in my week. I outlined the entire plot of my next novel (this will be a fantasy fiction/supernatural series.) I am starting to figure out the characters, plot points, where I am going with exposition, rising action, and I even figured out how my novel ends and how the second novel in the series will start.

It has been rainy here the last couple days, and while I often feel good when it rains it not the case at this moment.
