I applaud the efforts of my fellow blogger friend Varnika, who crafted a series to spread the awareness on Mental Disorders, and the social stigma around them. Do give it a read and spread the word.
We can change the world, one word at a time. On this note, today, I’m going to do my bit by spreading awareness about mental health issues. I may not be qualified enough to decipher the intricacies of functionings of the human mind. However, I’m acutely aware that mental illnesses are still considered taboo in our society.
No one recognises, addresses, discusses or resdresses these problems. Yet, you’d be surprised to know that mental illness is not a dirty secret to be always kept under wraps.
I have previously written about my experience and learning from my struggles with depression. There are many more such ailments like anxiety, insomnia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit disorder, disassociative identity disorder, even kleptomania, to name a few.

How much is the plight of a person being left out in a relationship? How deeply it scrapes our heart when the person you entrusted the most betrays you and leaves you when you needed them the most.Being left alone and not cared too much by the people around you, who weave your web of life, is heart-wrenching.
Have you ever tried to Stifle your pain?
A stifled voice
but choked by
in the numbed mind
by the atrocities
witnessed by eyes
carved deep inside
A pair of eyes
gazing from emptiness
an onerous plight
A heart tired
from the burdensome
reality weaved by the mind
A mind with thoughts
of the malicious body
A body withered and dragged
scraped and bloodied
holding onto the
last dregs of sanity
for his soul, so kind
A static soul
frozen on time
by the memories
and the pain
Static is the pain

Look what’s brewing in GoDogGo cafe.Be a part of it.
Steve Fuller has been encouraging the Baristas to develop monthly themes for the Go Dog Go Cafe’s Baristas and guest writers to use as a springboard for their creativity, much like the Chef’s use a unifying ingredient on Iron Chef or Chopped.
We will be launching this “ingredient for the month” concept in February in way that let’s us honor the great writer Ursula K. Le Guin, who we lost earlier this week after an amazing life of writing and inspiring adults and children around the world with her powerful storytelling, poetry, and essays. We challenge all of you to write a poem, essay, reflective piece, story, flash fiction that honors her, is inspired by a favorite LeGuin story, or dives into the mind of a character in one of her books. You pick, she is your main ingredient.
If you decide to take us up on our monthly challenge, please submit…
