Mental Illness On Olanzpine

Postby yellowducky » Wed May 17, 2017 6:39 am

I think it would be a good thing is to write a story all about my struggle against food and my fear of becoming fatter and I was wondering what do you think of a story like that any views?? ;)

Nobody can predict what will generate interest and what won't. A lot of it depends on how well it's written. The only way to find out is to write it.

Writing is like driving a car at night. You can only see as far as the headlights, but you make the whole trip that way.

Well if you have an opinion,a motivator,and general chit chat about the whole mental illness,about how I feel and the people that have annoyed me during the times I take my medication ,You think that would be interesting ?

Again - if you write it well and make it interesting, then yeah. I would suggest you look at other people who have done what you want to do (I'm assuming this is for a blog of some sort), and see what they did (or didn't do) to build readership.

Personally, no. Only because I've lived with a mental illness for decades; I'm tired of it. I'm tired of listening to or reading about other people's struggles. I've learned how to live with it and have moved on to actually live my life. Others, of course, would be more interested. THOSE people make up your audience.

absolutely not

the world is full of addicts and others who think the world wants to read how they overcame some problem

the dirty little truth is that they all have their own problems and dont care about yours
