Yep, sooo, this is my first journal entry. Got to start somewhere, right? So here I am.
I'm also on picsart (voodoopastel.picsart.com/
) but MAN, it takes forever for people to look at your work! So I opened a Deviant account. Oh! And I was meant to be getting in touch with someone to design a book cover but she had to opt out... Book cover is finished though, Isn't that great!? yeah, it is. I hope she's ok..
Anyway, the idea behind future journal entries is a bit of a personal one. Not only do I want to keep others (and myself) updated and whatever, I kind of wanted to double it up as a 'Diary of a mental' thing. I mean, it's personal; VERY personal. But it's hard. It's not just, 'oh. I have depression. I'm sooo upset and I want to kill myself.' or 'I have anxiety. I hate everyone!'. It's not like that at all, and it affects every day life. And so, I think it might be good for other people with (what should i call it...? 'Problems'? I dunno.) whatever to read some of my crap and feel a bit better. like, 'it'll be ok' or 'I'm fine the way I am' and stuff. At the same time, maybe people will be able to start to underrstand a little more, even though I think that you can never truely understand unless you have one of these 'mental illnesses'. And screw those words! Its not like I have cancer. I'm just a bit of a funny mental sometimes. So there we go. I'm dry, sarcastic and I'm myself. Just hoping it works.
Some other time! Rachel.
