What was your most challenging piece to write?

Just curious. I just finished up my millionth edit of my About Me page, and have to say it still is the most challenging piece so far. It’s not even where I want it yet.

    It’s impossible to blog mental illness and recovery stories and not be an educator. I’m certain you hear all the time how something you wrote “opened someone’s eyes.”

      Thank you, Jeff for your words and for sharing one of your pieces. I applaud you in saying it like it is! I look forward to reading more.

      I tend to write about my manic or happier days and the details within with greater ease. My depression leaves me speechless.
