Leslie's complete story

a lifetime of pain, Finally explained

I must admit, writing this is tough! I am on "take 11" today; Thursday, July 14th, 2014. I am optimistic I will be brave enough to post this by midnight tonight. You might think it is silly I say that....

In the wake of the loss of Robin Williams, I felt compelled to write more about my own struggles with mental illness. Oh wow, there it is on the internet...yes, I too suffer with mental illness.

Typing that, my heart beats fast... I fear I am now unemployable. Well, that may have been true already, however right now I feel I have sealed my fate. It is a good fate, all I want to be is me. A writer, an artist, a creator of ideas and solutions that help people. That is my job, my employment.

OK! If you don't see my story up, email me and I will send it to you and publish it here. I will reference you as my Muse, as the one that let me forget about perfect and get on with it!

Oh, and I will send you a prize!
