Life Update ~ Need Your Feedback!

Life Update ~ Need Your Feedback!

Hello, everyone! Yes, it’s that time of week again. I’m still working at the vet clinic for now; I’m going to ask my ‘supervisor’ if there’s any possible way to get more hours. I’m not thinking anything will come of it, but we shall see!

I have a doctor’s appointment on Monday just to get a wellness check and see what steps I need to take for my anxiety and depression since I haven’t done anything about it in the almost two years since I moved down here. Hopefully good comes from that! I need to make a Diabetes appointment, but first I need to get on checking my blood sugars and monitoring myself better. So much to do!

I have more material for my book! I’ve realized it’s going to take a lot more effort to self-publish than I’d previously anticipated. I still am going to have the book finished by the end of the year, (let’s hope!) but due to costs I don’t know if I’ll be able to have it out in the world by then. We’ll see what happens.

It’s probably a little early to be sharing this with you, but I’m excited to hear your feedback! This is going to be the opening paragraph for my book I think. (Subject to change) I’ll either have it as the beginning, or else in a little prologue for it. I’m still working on constructing this thing! So I’ll put that down, and please give honest feedback on it. Keep in mind I haven’t done any editing to it yet, I’ll get there once I have it assembled. This is the “I’m going to read a tiny bit of this to see if I like it”, so I have a short amount of time to draw you in! Are you drawn in?:

There seems to be such a vast void between me and the grip on myself I so wish I had. But how treacherous would that journey across be, and could it perhaps be less fearsome than I fear it is? Honestly, I don’t have the answer. I don’t have it, and there’s a chance I never will. However, what I do have, are experiences with depression and anxiety, and how that has impacted me and those around me.

For a long time I wasn’t even aware of the word depression, yet alone what it meant. There must be, at the very least, one other person on this tiny blue dot that feels or has felt the same. This book is for you. This book is for every single one of you, and my only hope is that it will have a positive impact on your life. Shall we begin?

  1. Love this into to your book. I agree with Debbie about swapping the position of the two paragraphs. But, other than that I think it’s great. You have a very easy flow writing style, and you speak so comfortably to your readers.

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback. 😀 I really appreciate that, I’m glad you liked it and took the time to read it! I’m glad they just needed switched; I knew it seemed odd but couldn’t put my finger on it-everyone’s been great at helping me with this! 🙂

    1. I had no idea it even existed. Not until I first attempted suicide, and went to ‘the mental place’ (as I refer to it, it was a mental health ward for juveniles that I stayed at for five days) did I learn about depression. Before I just thought I was crazy for feeling the way I felt, and that made it so much worse for me. I finally got handouts and booklets about depression and was like oh! I’m not actually crazy! It was a nice revelation.

  2. I like the introduction but I think you can include more introduction about yourself, a paragraph or two about you, what you do or something like that. I hope you will be able to finish and publish your book so that those experiencing the same can benefit from it. 🙂 Kudos to you!

    1. Thank you so much for the feedback and kind words! I really appreciate that. I think that will be the opening, and then I have more about me following and go from there – I was thinking the same thing! I’m still working on the overall construction though.

    1. Ooh, that’s really good. I was thinking the first sentence of the second paragraph seemed out of place; I think you’re right! Thank you so much, Debbie. I really appreciate you reading it and giving feedback! 🙂
