First, I suppose I should share a little of my logic behind creating this thing. So, as you, the potential reader of this journal, may or may not be aware of, but I am currently suffering through a bout of depression. Now, I'm on meds, and have started counseling and all that, but I've been told by my mother (who inevitably seems to be my chief confidant) that part of my problem is inherent loneliness. I mean...I don't really have anyone to truly gush at in my real life, or anyone to really confide in. Like...most of my friends simply haven't read the same books that I have, or played the video games that I do, or they are simply too far away, and we are all terrible at keeping in contact with each other. Online friends are a bit better in this regard, but are ultimately more distracting. Anyway, so the point is that I'm creating this journal to fully give myself a place to...gush? Vent what's on my mind, and about what I've been doing recently?
The second part of my reasoning stems from the fact that my doctors have told me that it's a pretty good idea for me to start keeping a journal. Pretty much same as above--this would give me a place to exercise any pent up emotions and make me stop repressing things and freaking out and having panic attacks, etc, etc. Plus, I'm physically disabled (more in-depth details will be a topic for another day...), so it's easier for me to type than it is to handwrite. So....tada! Here I am.
