A Recovery Blog
This blog is about my continuing recovery from severe mental illness. I celebrate this recovery by continuing to write, by sharing my music and artwork and by exploring Buddhist ideas and concepts. I claim that the yin/yang symbol is representative of all of us because I have found that even in the midst of acute psychosis there is still sense, method and even a kind of balance. We are more resilient than we think. We can cross beyond the edge of the sane world and return to tell the tale. A deeper kind of balance takes hold when we get honest, when we reach out for help, when we tell our stories.

I was inspired to start this blog because of an online friend of mine: Pamela Spiro Wagner. Her blog is called WAGblog and the address is http://www.schizophrenia.com/pam/ She and her sister wrote a book called DIVIDED MINDS: Twin Sisters And Their Journey Through Schizophrenia. She is also a fine and dedicated poet. Please check out her website and her book.
