So I have decided to share what I have learnt in some free training which I would love to offer everyone.
No sales or strings.
I had all the symptims of PTSD and was suicidal and have come through the otherside.
If you are interested the training starts 26th March, it's free and you can join the group at facebook.com/groups/beatanxiety
I wanted to share my new piece that was published yesterday on Go Mag. I’m writing a second piece for them now. I’m proud to share this because it is the FIRST article I’ve written (that’s been published) in my freelance career that is not a personal essay. I’m branching out, though my love is always with personal stories.
This specific piece is for Women’s History Month. To remember the prolific, influential dancer Isadora Duncan. She was the epitome of the romantic tragic artist. Her young children died in a car accident. Her husband left her after a year and committed suicide by hanging. In 1927 (at age 50) Isadora died her own unusual and untimely death. The long hand-painted scarf draped around her neck became entangled with the rear axel and open-spoked wheels of the car she was traveling in; forcefully pulling her out and ultimately, breaking her neck. She was an amazing individual. She had no formal dance training yet she attained fame and success in Europe. Toured several countries. Opened dance schools. Etc.
Let me know what you guys think! PS: This was my first piece for Go Mag. My second piece for them is due in 6 days. They pay very quickly, for anyone interested in writing for them. More so than any other pub I’ve worked with. I was paid via Zelle within mere hours of my story being published yesterday. Gotta love that 🙂
3:30am, me "chillin" with my ice helmet. If you get migraine attacks and have ever tried ice, I highly recommend the helmet. Good morning to all the chronic pain warriors out there! Going for my first round of botox today. I'm a little nervous. #chronicmigraine, #MentalHealth chronicpain #Bemighty
I'm not going to tell you I understand all of what your going through right now, what you go through everyday, because I don't, not really. But I'll tell you that I understand a bit, I know what it feels like, to want the world to go away, to want to be left alone. I know how it feels to wake up in the morning and not have the will to face anything, to be at a point where you just want everything to stop. I've had nights where I prayed I wouldn't wake up. I've had days where pain was the only thing that made me feel better. I couldn't talk to anyone because they wouldn't understand. Most people feel it's just something you can "get over". If only. For me, every day is a battle. I constantly ask myself, if all the efforts are even worth it.
I cut myself off from people, so much that now I don't even know how to be around them anymore. Sleep for me is an escape, and I read because I'd rather lose myself in someone else's story than face mine.
I would like to tell you it gets better, because I believe it will all make sense one day. But until then, I decided I'd try, I'd fake it, being happy, trying to be positive, for me, for the people around me, for the ones that care about me. I don't know the demons you're battling, but I know you need to make a decision, do you control them or do they control you? Yes you'll have bad days, you'll have days you'll wish you could just escape. But you'll have good days too, the days that will make everything worth it. #youarenotalone #CheckInWithMe #Bemighty #Depression #Anxiety #MentalHealth
A bird took flight
An infant cried
I don't know where I am
Hello? What are you doing?
I used to love roses
Did you know that?
Your favorite colour is red
Red like danger, red like blood
Red red red red
That's all I see now
Someone please shut that baby up
I'm not insane, I'm not insane, I'm not insane
Are you a doctor?
What's my name?
I think I like death
She screamed, I laughed
We are having so much fun
Why are your eyes leaking?
I'm fine you know
I'm so cold
No, don't touch me
