Rules of the road and our stars

Feb 5, 2010 | site stuff, Writing | 0 comments

Our Cast

Linked to rule one (see later), though I’m a public person, my family isn’t.  For that reason, my fiancée is ‘My Beloved’ or my DH (though, we’re not married yet – I have however took his last name for ease of publishing – two years down the road or so, when we are married, I don’t want to mess with my books ;) ), my daughter is PrincessPink, and my son is TeenieBoi.  Mom, his Mom and others may make occassional appearances – but the only two ‘named’ people on the blog are me, and the cat, Kushka, who is a Bengal and very cute.
There is absolutely NO possibility of pictures appearing of the kids right now, and everyone else other than me is highly unlikely for different reasons than why I’m highly unlikely to appear here (I’m usually behind the camera).  This may change in the future, and you’ll sometimes see the cat.

And the rules of the road

I’ve got three rules.

One – I’m in charge – so no armchair critiquing (as another friend so aptly puts it).

Two – I preserve my family’s anonymity as best as I can, and ask that others do the same.

Three – I advertise on my site, and fund it with Adsense, but I don’t let others advertise, even in their comments.  I also don’t automatically add people on Facebook or Twitter, or LinkedIn or anywhere else.  Please don’t ask me to add you in the comments – you’ll get blocked.

Other than that, most anything goes.  I like healthy debate, and am very passionate about my opinions.

Welcome to my blog.

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
