my attempt at my first book – a biography

This is the link to my attempt.


I hope you find it interesting.

There are only two chapters at the moment, so I have a long way to go.

I will add more over time, if I can peel myself away from all your great blogs 🙂


This is my first attempt at a biography of my experiences with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, suicide and seizures throughout my life. Im hoping others will find comfort in knowing they are not alone and there are people out there that will listen and understand with no judgement. I dont yet have a title for my book and I may make changes to posts, as memories come back to me or I believe I am changing it for the better as I go along.

no writing & no blogging

I havent posted anything or done any writing since last week!

I have been too busy reading other people’s blogs.  I read one and then get a link of another blog off that one and then another link.

There is so much to read and so many interesting stories!

I just cant seem to get enough.  My brain just wants to soak in more and more and more.

And everyones updates are also keeping me out of trouble.

I have hardly looked at Facebook, watched TV or even thought about the next chapter of my book.

I think I have kinda caught up on most blogs recent updates and will read their archives over time.

So, hopefully, I can attempt my next chapter of my book.

Thank you all out there for giving me so many great and interesting blogs to read.

All of you take care and happy blogging!


blogs, blogees, bloggers and blogging

I have only been blogging for a few weeks now.

It is an amazing community of great people and great blogs!

It has opened up a whole new world for me.

There are so many people blogging with the same and similar issues as me.  I am finding these blogs so helpful and interesting.

Some also dont have these issues and I am finding your blogs interesting too.

Regardless, there are so many interesting blogs to read.  So many great blogs and so little time!

I am loving all your blogs and trying to keep up with them all.

And I appreciate your interest in my blogs and hope you find them interesting.

I think its also helping me with my writing.

Thanks everyone and take care.

started writing

Well I have started writing.  I have written two chapters.

I was right.  Once I start writing a chapter, I slowly get on a roll and it just keeps coming.


I have many more chapters to go, but at least Ive made a start.

Im assuming people reading this blog, can also see I have another blog, which is the beginnings of my first attempt at a book.

I hope you find it interesting, as I add some more chapters.

It is nice knowing people are interested. 🙂

Trying to write a book

on my battle with depression, anxiety and panic attacks.
I have such a fragmented memory of my life.

My memory is full of holes.

I dont know if it is due to the stress my poor brain has endured over the many years or if its due to the medications or the spate of seizures I had in my late teens and early twenties.

It makes it hard to write a book.  I guess if I sit down and try to think of my earliest memory, which will have to be from my mid teens, because I dont have any memory of my childhood.  Maybe I will be surprised at what I can remember.  I have read of people who sat down and one memory triggered another.

I dont know if I have blocked it all out.  Maybe it is a good thing.  Im not brave enough to delve into that part of my mind, just in case Im better off not knowing.

I want to write a biography, so other people can hopefully find comfort knowing they are not the only one.  I get a little comfort from reading other peoples blogs and know I am not the only one.  I also wish those people werent suffering.  It just shouldnt be so.

Im not sure it will have a happy ending yet.  Never can tell from one day to the next.  I doubt it though.
