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.

Song: Not Right

This is a song that I just wrote yesterday.  It's about living with multiple personality disorder.


Not Right

Something’s not right.
Something’s not right.
The world is split into pieces.

A kaleidoscope with many parts
Moving and shifting
With color’s bright and subtle.

The negative space
Defines all the shapes
Spreads farther than we can see
Out into eternity.

The underlying cause
Of all these colorful flaws
Are the cycles of abuses
Perpetuated on a soul
That was attacked at two days old
And split into multiple defenses.

Something’s not right.
Something’s not right.
The world is split into pieces.
