TO HELLAN BACK
It,s often been said that "home is where the heart is" they say that a lot. Personally I,m
quite happy in the knowledge that my heart is
beating, and last time I looked somewhere in the vicinity of my left lung!
Just quietly I for one would like to know who "they" are,any-way.
Over the last twenty six years,beggining in 1983,I have been both on a journey and a battle.
A battle thats been hell,and a journey that has
taught me a lot about the human condition.
I now know that home may be somewhere in
the vicinity of the heart,but I KNOW FOR
SURE that its genesis most definitely lies where the brain,or head is at.
Having been through many years of what we still call "mental illness" and having read and
written on the subject,when I have time,there are two simple conclusions I have come too
when it comes to mental illness.
1. THE STIGMA SURROUNDING IT HAS NOT
DECREASED IN 25 YRS.
2. THE FUNDING TOO IT IS PATHETIC.
My aim in telling most of my story is primarily to try to help with De-stigmatization.
To that end I am sick of the two main ways
that mental health seems to get written about.
One "method" is the first person "whoa is me"
approach. The second is a clinical point by point outline that any doctor,chemist or book
can tell you.
Please don't misunderstand,both the above are
important,and therapeutic in their own right.
But as I pointed out especially on stigma THE SONG REMAINS THE SAME.
I intend to write my story with humor,respect,dignity. I will be sarcastic at
times,even sardonic,and if my black deliberately attention seeking, and ultimately
entertaining style doesn't break through,then
at least I tried. If I offend you,I apologize,because that is not my intention.
BUT IF I INFORM/EDUCATE/MAKE YOU LAUGH SO MUCH THE BETTER.
My story will be punctuated by links to some of my articles. I hope you find these
STIGMA NO MORE!
