When I originally began blogging in 2007 it was a way of discussing how mental illness has affected me through my life.
I wrote posts and monologues on how various afflictions have effected me and how I’ve learned to live with and/or understand them.
Although not a full reprint of my original blog I have reproduced here some of the major pieces I wrote on a variety of mental illnesses. In time I plan to import more of my posts to create the definitive archive of Addy’s writing on mental illness, as well as ‘directors cut’ versions to present them as I would wish them to be presented.
So, if you missed them first time around or wish to check them out again, you can access my articles by choosing one of the categories below.
Note: I am not a mental health professional, nor have I ever or do I make any claims to be a mental health professional. The articles and advice I have collected here have come from personal experience of mental illness and from discussions with other non-professionals/professionals through my life. If you are, or believe someone to be suffering from a mental health issue, please seek professional help as soon as possible.
