Blog Award: Once a Victim now a Survior

5 Jul

 

1- In what ways do you feel that blogging can help people with psychological trauma  or mental illness?

I think it can give a clear picture to others who have not experienced trauma.  I also think it can be a great place for support and to process things.
2 – How has blogging helped you with your healing, or your personal journey?

Support from the blogging community as well as feedback.  A safe place to process and vent my experiences.
3 – What books, movies, or YouTube channels would you recommend to someone with a similar background to you?

Borderline Personality Disorder Demystified (Book)  Sometimes I act crazy (book)  Schizoaffective Disorder Simplified by: Martine Daniel (book)   Girl interrupted (movie)  Back from the edge (youtube video)

4 – When did you start your blog and what inspired you?

May 24th 2010.  One of my farmville friends posted a link to her blog on eating disorders and it was inspiring.  I started the blog to express my feeling and hopefully inspire someone, though for the first year or so most posts were about bad days.  But that’s where I was at the moment
5 – What types of blogs do you follow?
Trauma, Borderline Personality Disorder, psychosis, language, mental illness in general, poets

Thanks to Heather’s Helpers for the nomination.  Check out her blog!
