I have combined my first blog with my about page – seemed to be the time for it. …
Mild mental illnesses that lack definite form yet still able to maintain some semblance of reality.
That’s life in a nutshell.
Been down this road many times before, hoping this time to make it stick. I am many things to many people and still somewhere along the way I forget who I am to myself. I don’t have the answers – hell, I don’t even know the questions half the time! Yet still I am doing my best in the time and space I have been allotted.
It’s just my journey and my reflections on life and what goes on around me. You may find something within these words that resonate, or anger, or just inspire apathy. It doesn’t matter – at the end of the day, it’s just me trying to find my voice.
Neurosis : a relatively mild mental illness that is not caused by organic disease, involving symptoms of stress (depression, anxiety, obsessive behaviour, hypochondria) but not a radical loss of touch with reality. (neuroses being the multiple thereof)
Just leaving this here for now. The first two posts pretty much speak for themselves and cover just why this this possibly the best choice of blog name.
Oh and to answer your question – yes this is pretty much all about me. Unapologetic, unabashed and in your face honest. If you don’t like something that’s all fair – the world wasn’t meant to be a place where we all agree. This is however, my opinion and my life, tread carefully.
2017 ~ It’s still about me, a whole year later. According to the definition, I am still neurotic to some extent (probably more than I’ll willingly admit to), and it’s a lot more undefined than any “professional” can assist with. I like myself that way. Took me a while to figure that out, so I’ll sign that release form now and be done with it. Although admittedly my reality and yours may be vastly different. I’ll be off now and go and chase my unicorn away from the faerie. Seems like a good thing to do on this summer’s day 🙂
2019 ~ And still not much has changed. I am constantly working on who and why and how. My neuroses seem to increase as the years pass, and definition seems to be lacking in every direction. Bring on 2020!
