I Wished For You, Too

The years have been hard, A dullness, a dark room without any light. Hands always stretching out ahead, chasing, Everything always just out of reach. I thought of you when I needed some colour in the darkness, A flash of hope, of what I might one day find. I always had you in the back … Continue reading I Wished For You, Too

Dear You

Dear You I always felt like you've known me, I thought of you when I got lonely, Now there's nothing else I can do, This is me reaching out to you Dear you, I hope you don't mind me writing, 'cause it's been some time since we last spoke, I hope you're doing more than … Continue reading Dear You

‘Mental Illness is a Myth’

What is mental illness? Mental illness is a myth. Psychiatrists are not concerned with mental illness and their treatments. In actual practice, they deal with personal, social and ethical problems of living (Szasz, 1972). This is a question that has crossed my mind on many occasions. 'What is this?' 'What is happening?'

September

So this month - swimming. The best feeling in the world, however, due to an unrelated injury, it was only the once. Perhaps going forwards, once i have fully recovered, I will go back and make this a regular outing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnMbTDDL5aQ Just Keep Swimming

By the time I'm 30, I'll have recovered, faced my fear … Continue reading Dream Trip

Rain

I love the rain. The sound of it hitting the street below and splashing as cars pass by. It's inspirational in its own right. There's something very calming and therapeutic about rain. Like a million tears running down windows, witnessed by many a lost soul. It changes things, the smell in the air, the mood … Continue reading Rain

Saying Yes

This month, I started out with the idea of taking up jogging - a positive step towards physical fitness. So, on the 1st of June, I jogged and then thus ended my jogging experience. Once was enough. It was not enjoyable and was slightly painful to my already sensitive joints. So I was going to … Continue reading Saying Yes
