Hey guys…I promise no more vlogs today-thanks to those of you who watched my earlier one on how to respond to people with mental health conditions. The content of this vlog contains one of the most important messages I want to get out there in the public domain, so I have shared it here. It is another vlog which is educational in style, though relaxed as is my usual style. So relaxed I lost my train of thought and had mind freeze at the end of the first video and had to take a few minutes then start recording the last segment!! DUH! I will write an accompanying post relating to today’s vlogs, tomorrow.

I'm a survivor of organised childhood abuse, trauma & exploitation spanning my entire childhood/adolescence. My 'SummerSHINES' blog is my therapeutic plot of cyber space- my place to reflect, ponder, splash out my pain, express my deepest darkest emotions and fears, articulate what daily life with mental health conditions is like, & track my transformative journey from victim of crime to empowered shiny survivor. I tend to this plot of cyber space with a whole load of stream-of-consciousness writing and the odd bit of poetry. I also do the odd sharpie scribble too....(free-form hand-written mixes of writing and doodles to visually pop out the contents of my kooky and unique mind in the weirdest and wonderful-est ways. [My style is quentin blake meets three year old] This is a candid #nofilter blog, where I am unusually honest about ALL aspects of my experiences, thoughts, and feelings surrounding mental health and my tortured past. NOTHING is avoided. Everything is confronted. Authenticity *is* everything. This is a blog of blunt, raw [and unedited] realness and pain, examining the brutal frailty of living, and the truth of living a life in which you battle with a near constant wish to die.
