It’s feedback time, chiiiiildren!

housekeeping

 

I’ve published twenty-odd posts and have apparently picked up enough steam to receive a few spam comments, much to my delight and amusement. Now, I’d like to hear from all of you! What should I write about/post more of on this blog? I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, of course, but I feel like I could use some direction at this point. Also, who doesn’t love to share their opinion on the Intarwebz? I’ve enabled custom answers for this poll as well, and you can always leave comments with suggestions.

I’d like to do a few more vlogs, but I feel like I’m super-awkward on camera and only have the webcam that came with the laptop; therefore, whatever I produce isn’t likely to be very high-quality, and I want to provide you guys with high-quality stuff whenever possible.

I’m not opposed to writing a few fluffy posts here and there to lighten the mood, or even do a picspam every once in a while, because I know the content here can get pretty dark/dreary. On the other hand, I don’t want to stray too far from the original intent of this blog–to share what it’s like to live with major depressive disorder and PTSD, as well as what the therapy process has been like for me so far. I’ll probably also throw up a post with some stats about MDD and PTSD sometime in the very near future, because mental illness is a lot more common than people think. I believe that putting myself out there to add another “face” to the illness is important for diminishing the stigma, but hard facts are also helpful when framing mental illness in a larger context.

But instead of rambling at you about my future plans, let’s get on with the poll!

  1. Only just stumbled upon your blog today, and I followed you. I think what you are doing with this blog is amazing. You are right, so many people underestimate mental illnesses, simply because they can’t relate to it. Anyway, keep up the good work 🙂
    All the best,

    1. Anne,

      Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply! Your project is also very interesting–it seems strange that anyone could feel lonely or disconnected in a society that’s essentially “on” all the time, but that’s why what you’re doing is so important. Also, I think it’s fantastic that you’re giving people a safe place to share their stories. :3
