The Third Wheel…

Being in any relationship has its hardships and delights, but when mental health issues are in the mix does this complicate things or does it enlighten them?

At what point do you tell them? Right at the beginning, on your dating profile, after six months or just wait for them to notice and say, oh didn’t I tell you? When is it okay to say, “Hey! I have a mental illness, well not one or two but three!” When will they believe it’s just a part of me? 



To Love Again.

This is for you, my love, to the one I haven’t met

To the one who will know me

When I don’t know me yet.


Out there living your life as I am here living mine

One day I shall know you

When our paths cross in time.


Today I know I am broken but this is for you then

For I know you will find me

Even if I don’t know when.


So I am fighting for you now, for when you help me rise above

For the days I can’t love myself

I know I will feel your love.


I shall live without you for now so I am alive for you then

For one day, I know I’ll be ready

To love again.
