The Mental Battle

Hello, Readers.

It’s taken me a long time to get to this blog today. Normally I try to whip them out before I’ve finished my first cup of coffee. Today, however, it’s been different. I generally try to give you all updates on my book. If you are interested it is going through editing and a few chapters into that. Thank you, Ellie for keeping me up to date on the editing journey. As for the cover, there is still no word on that.

I’ve come up with what I believe will be a great storyline and I’ve been working through the main plot line to lay out that part of the outline.

I knew that basic update wasn’t all I wanted to write about on my blog, but I couldn’t seem to wrap my head around it. Mentally, I’m just not in a good place. I’m filled with a lot of hurt and anger currently and there is so much that simply feeds it. I believe it all points to I’m going to cycle once more through the down slope of mental illness.

Knowing that it is already beginning, doesn’t make it easier to handle. It’s a dark place, filled with dark thoughts. So in light of knowing the dark place in which my mentality resides currently I’ll refrain from writing more than the brief update on where my book is at and what is coming next. The last thing I want to do is write a blog post that is filled with so much negativity that it would serve you readers little good as an entertainment piece.

So as for now I’ll sign of with remember to L.O.L. (Live it, Own it, Love it) or it isn’t worth doing.

  1. I hope you’re doing better soon. As someone who suffers from severe depression and anxiety, I can tell you self care is essential. Since the election, my Facebook feed is a constant stream of negativity. I can’t watch the news without fear and anxiety creeping in. I’ve had to cut myself off from a lot of it in order to preserve my own sanity.

    1. I’ve unfollowed a lot of people on Facebook because of the constant flow of negativity. I can handle a few political posts, but it comes to the point when that is all I see from them. That is when it has to stop so I click unfollow. Thank you. I was lucky this time. The bounce back was so much quicker than it can sometimes be and I’m working again, so I’m happy.
