Away from the Diary I have things that I deal with that are causing me stress. I find ways to deal with my stress, but my Diary doesn’t always exempt me from other people’s stress. It does however allow me to find coping mechanisms.
Like everyone, I am not exempt. I still have to function and deal with life and those grey areas that make my life stressful, particularly if I don’t find ways to resolve those ‘grey areas.’
My Diary gives me an understanding, a voice in an uncertain world, an outlet, somewhere I can vent so that I am able to make sense of my world around a disability I didn’t know I had and all that I have to deal with, away from my writing.
