I can offer you a mixed bag of Q&A. AMA about my mental hospital stay, why/how I wrote, illustrated & self-published a book or how I became a successful IT consultant with chronic anxiety.
Hello everyone, thanks so very much for joining me.
My name is Nena and feel free to AMA about a pivotal moment in my life; in 2001, I had a breakdown and admitted into a mental hospital. I do have some funny/ scary storied of my time there.
I used to be so embarrassed about this part of my life, but I have learned a lot during my recovery time, which I wanted to share with others in a simple straightforward format. So I wrote, illustrated, designed and self-published my first book Living with Little Chicken (called anxiety), a book to get you through the tough times. Ask me anything about the process of writing and self-publishing a book, and what I would do differently.
I now work full time as a successful IT consultant but my mind and I are still in conflict however the difference is; I now have the tools to keep on keeping on, or resting when need be. In the past the workplace has been a difficult for me because I have been bullied after I told my manager I was having a challenging time and was on medication (my work was not suffering, just me). His behaviour was devastating to my self-acceptance and recovery. If you would like to know more, AMA! J
Ps. you may also ask why I never sent my manuscript to publishing house before self-publishing and what I am doing about that now.
