Inspiring Bloggers

Mental health related blogs are spreading across the Internet.  From teenagers struggling with depression, to young women contending with Bipolar Disorder or Eating Disorders, to men sharing their trauma and emotional turmoil.

There are so many different people from all walks of life who have one thing in common – they blog about their mental health experiences and some of the experiences that contribute to their struggles.

All of these people offer the reader an insight into what it is like to, for example, overcome childhood sexual abuse, live with a crippling depression, or go through therapy.  Through their openness and honesty, as well as their ability to so articulately convey their emotional worlds, they demonstrate that they are not victims but SURVIVORS.

There are some incredible people out there with such amazing insight into life.  They are an inspiration!  Two of my favourite are:

Prozacblogger

Twitter: @Prozac_Blogger

A 26-year-old writer, father, husband and male domestic violence and childhood abuse survivor. Diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder (MDD) and Social Anxiety Disorder as a result of abuse endured by both parents, both physically and psychologically.

Unmothered Child

Twitter: @UnmotheredChild

Space to Think – Time to Talk – Room to Grow. Being in psychoanalytic therapy three times a week makes this blogger think, feel, and write some though-provoking blogs. Living with her ear close to the archetypal unconscious, Unmothered Child invites you read the lightbulb moments that are usually based in psychoanalytic theory.

Thank you both for allowing us into your thoughts and being so open with your sharing.

If anyone would like to share the details of other inspiring bloggers, please do so!
