A letter of establishment of my writings.

I am creating a log/ record of my struggle of my mental illness. I am making 4 piece series of just my life dealing with mental illness.

#1 Before Realizing I Needed Help.

#2 Before seeking help

#3 after seeking help

#4 end result.

These writings are just my mental state at the time when writing. I am trying to simply log my journey. I am now currently seeking help.  Within the next month I will be finally receiving the proper help and will start writing the start of the my new chapter of both my manuscript and life.
