Blog Background

I’ve been thinking about writing a recovery blog for a long time.  My original intent had been to call it sidelined, because for a long time I felt my life had been completely sidelined due to mental health and addiction issues.

I had originally thought I would use it to document my way through the mental health and addictions treatment process – posting hopefully humorous anecdotes along the way.

But now I see myself in recovery and want to post about what I’m doing to further my recovery.   I’ll still post the occassional funny anecdote from treatment experiences – because you have to laugh or else you’ll cry.

I’ll also post reviews of books that I’ve found helpful and links to on-line sites that have supported my recovery.

As a disclaimer, I’m pro-psychiatry and pro-meds.   I wouldn’t be where I am today without both.

Hope you enjoy reading.

    I stumbled upon your blog. I’ve had mental health issue before as well, but with my experience with meds and psychiatry, I am an antipsychiatry, antimeds (sometimes absolutely needed for some patients), but I am pro-psychotherapy.

  8. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your blog.
    You have some really good posts and I believe I would be a good asset.
    If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d really
    like to write some material for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine.

    Please blast me an e-mail if interested. Kudos!
