Just a poem I wrote some time ago….

Words can explain what’s going on in my head,

I want these feelings to go –

even if it means being dead.

I know it sounds harsh

but that’s how I feel,

it feels so stupid but it’s just so real.

I want to get through this,

I really do –

I want to be strong and able to cope too.

My life feels like it’s falling apart;

there is a huge division within my heart.

Will it heal?

I really don’t know, the pain is so real,

I just want it to go.

I look around me and see everyone’s so strong,

no matter what challenges them, they just go on and on.

I guess it’s too late to regain what I once had,

this really hurts, I feel I’m going mad.

I’ve got to let go, well that’s what it seems;

It’s no longer possible to follow my dreams.

Do I care? I’m not sure I do;

So this is the end,

I’m going to leave you.

Hello there, I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome you to my blog. I just like to start by mentioning that I am dyslexic so please be prepared for the typos as I'm sure there will be many. Anyway moving on, this is the first time that I have done anything like a blog online as I usually write my thoughts and feelings down on paper....but thought I should get up to date with the times! I have a degree in psychology and have completed my MEd in Counselling in Education. All of the work that I have done for my current degree is based on self-harm in one way or another! I have quite a lot of first hand experience with mental health issues as I've battled with them on and off for a number of years now. I feel that I'm at the stage in my life where I can finally help other people that have experienced similar experiences to me. I know that this sounds cheesy, but I really want to help people to overcome issue that they face as I feel that everything that I've been through will have been worth it. I still struggle at times with my own mental health issues and often need to let my feelings. In previous times I would have used self-harm to help me though, but I'm now able to direct my emotions in other ways such as drawing, writing poetry and through music. I'm unsure if anyone other than myself will read anything I write and that's okay. I understand that I can't change the world with what I write, but maybe I'll be able to bring people a little comfort in knowing that if I can get through very low points in my life, then they can too!
