About a year ago, we moved from the city to an off grid homestead in the middle of the desert. I also decided that I didn’t need to be on my anti-depressants any longer. This book of poetry chronicles my crash and my struggle to fight my mental illness on my own and failing. Finally, coming to the conclusion that it would be better for everyone if I was back on them.
If you have mental illness or know someone who does, then you know how real the struggle is and how heartbreaking it can be to lose that fight.
I didn’t write this book to necessarily help anyone, I just wrote to help me. Hopefully, that is good enough.
I hate asking people for money. The older I get the harder it is to do it. With that said, here’s the spiel of where the cash goes.
Everything that I make on this will go to the cost of printing the 100 page books and getting them shipped to me so I can sign them and ship them to you. That’s it.
I have perks including bookmarks, an audiobooks version, your name in the book, and even me coming out for a reading or talk about my experience crowdfunding. Every tier will get the signed paperback and ebook.
I have some really fun ideas for stretch goals, but let’s cross that bridge when we come to it.
Mental illness is real and is no joke. I hope this book can help people see how human this problem is and how many people are effected by it, whether they have mental illness or someone close to them does.
