Coming To You Live From My Sofa
I have just sat down with my laptop and have been studying my blog stats and thought I had better say a quick hello. Furthermore, as you know I am currently trying to get a book together; an anthology. A collection of poems by people suffering from any kind of mental health condition and also from the loved ones of people that struggle with these issues. This can be anything from PTSD to Bipolar and everything in between.
I just want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone that has so far responded to this as I have received messages and poems from all over the world. I would love to keep receiving these from you guys so please don’t stop. From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank each and every one of you that have not only submitted a poem but have also shared with me some of their own personal stories and I feel extremely humbled and honoured.
Because of this, I am carrying on with this anthology for as long as it takes. I couldn’t finish without listing the countries that I have heard from as it just astounds me. Not all have donated a poem but these are the people I am reaching with my blog and my message of hope for Mental Health Awareness:
- United Kingdom
- United States
- South Africa
- Hong Kong
- New Zealand
- United Arab Emirates
- Sri Lanka
- Myanmur (Burma)
- Trinidad & Tobago
I am just gobsmacked that people from all of the places above have read my blog. This is why I just had to take some time out tonight and say a really big thank you for reaching out, for reading it just makes everything worthwhile.
Now I’d better go and finish the coffee I made as I think it’s gone cold.
Catch you soon
