I am so excited to announce that my new book, HEALING MENTAL ILLNESS: Lessons Learned in the Trenches, is now available! In the past three years I have grown more than in the previous three years of my recovery, as well as during the ten years of my illness combined. I have really gotten to the bottom of the illness and have a much more in-depth understanding of it. The deep, underlying trauma is healing.
When I was in my most desperate state and was crying out for help, it didn’t seem to arrive in the way that I felt that I needed. To be in such pain and suffering, and not receive enough assistance, or the right kind assistance, does something to a person. It did something to my soul. I’ll never be the same again. I’ll never be able to distract myself with cheap pleasures, live solely for myself, or forget about the people who are suffering in this world. It is constantly with me.
My mission is to help people who are suffering with mental illness, so they don’t have to suffer like I did. All of the work I’ve done on this website and in my books is for that purpose. I have tried to take my blood, sweat, and tears, synthesize the lessons that I’ve learned from it, and squeeze it out in a way that is useful to others. My prayer is that it helps you, your loved one, or your patients to heal.
If you read through the blogs on this website, watch the videos, and listen to the podcast episodes, I hope that you find some nuggets of wisdom that help you move forward in your life. I hope that some of the tools work for you in the way that they have worked for me.
In my new book, I share in a concise way the most profound insights that I have learned from my healing. I tried to provide the most direct route. Here it is:
I wish you the very best on your healing journey! May God bless you always.
