It has taken me years to dig up the courage to embark on this new project. I cannot even begin to tell you how many times people have said to me, “You should write a memoir about your life.” I still cannot imagine why. I feel like my life has been relatively boring compared to many. Still, I suppose I have a few things about my life that may interest others.
So, beginning this upcoming Monday, May 9th, I will begin writing and posting pieces of my memoir here on this blog. The working title for it will be A Delicious Torment. Topics of interest will include my mental health issues, mainly that of having Borderline Personality Disorder, Bipolar Disorder and OCD, along with a few other issues such as my descent into madness and suicide attempts. I will also describe my life as a bisexual woman, my college days, and my marriage of 13 years. I am not sure how deep I will go into my childhood, but there will be some of that in there as well.
Hopefully, I will be able to write this without it sounding like one huge pity party. No one wants to read something like that. I haven’t yet decided if I will write it chronologically or in piecemeal. I guess it depends on how I feel each Monday. I intend to be completely honest in this project. Lies will be exposed and possibly some shocking truths will come to light.
