Hello. You might remember from a while back that I posted something similar to what I am going to post now. I stated that I'm writing a book and it's about us, and about you. It's a voice of people with disorders such as Anorexia/Bulimia, Self-Injury, Bi-Polar, Homosexuality, and Gender-Confusion. (Please note: I do not believe Homosexuality nor Gender-Confusion are really "disorders" in the sense that they are bad in any ways. And I state this in my book - and if you have something you wish the world to hear then, please, send me your story:) ). I'm really sorry to everyone who sent me stories, but because of some things going on in my house and in my life I was unable to check my e-mail as often as I liked, and it was deleted. I've tried desperately to recover it, but it's been rather unsucessful. Please, if you would send to me again or for the first time that would be so appreciated.
I'm writing this book in hopes that people will hear our stories and understand these disorders as we do. I hope for them to understand how we view them, and how the world views them.
I'm calling it, "The Voice of Disorders You Thought You Knew: The truth, from the people who live it." Or something along those lines. It's already started, I'm just in need of more voices to add. :)
If you could fill this out in the e-mail that would be great:
Would you like me to use your name (First names will only be used):
(If not) Alias Name:
When did you start (self injury, bulimia), or when did you know/find out or have suspicions (Bi-polar, homosexuality, gender-confusion):
Do you know why you started (Self injurers, anorexics, bulimics):
Do you think there's a reason you're this way (Homosexuals, Bi-polars, Gender-Confused):
Have you seen a physician (therepist, psychiatrist, etc):
Have you been on any medication(if so, what?):
Have you tried to stop/tried to change(Or in other's oppinion, tried to "be normal"):
When did you try:
How long has it/ did it last:
What happened (if you couldn't stop, started again, etc.):
Does anyone know(if so, who?):
Why did you tell them:
Do you have any specific triggers:
Your first time (Self-injurers, anorexics, bulimics):
When you first thought or knew you (Homosexuals, gender-confused, Bi-polar), something like... the time, place, something you did or what happened to make you know or think it:
Anything in particular that you remember, something that stands out like a time you did it that had a bigger impact that normal, an experience that you remember out of every other, etc:
And, in general if you guys would like to tell me about yourselves, about what you do and why you think you do it or why you are how you are then that would be great. Not everything that you fill-out will necesarily be used (Except your name, age and story of course), I just asked a lot for general information, and if you tell me not to use certain things than, of course, I will not. This is to be about us, these are our stories and who we are, you can tell me all you'd like or as little as you'd like. Just add in whatever you'd like in your story.
If you guys have any poetry, artwork, etc. that you'd like to send in I would love it and try to place it in the book as well, either with your story or in a whole different section for art. :)
And if you guys would put at the end of your story or somewhere at the bottum of the e-mail where you got this (website, community, etc.) that'd be great. :)
Sadly, I may not be able to use everything that I'm sent, but if I don't them I will try to make sure you are aware of it.
No one but me will see these e-mails, they are confidential, and nothing that you do not want published will be published, but make sure to tell me what you don't want published, please.
Please copy/paste between the ****** and send it to me at SheWolfKC@hotmail.com . Please put the subject as "Book:(and whether you're writing for Anorexia/Bulimia, Gender-Confusion, Bi-Polar, Homosexuality, Self-Injury, etc.)" If you have any questions you're welcome to comment or send them to me as well, I can't say how quickly I'll reply but I will try to do so as fast as I can.
Thank you all, so much. I know I haven't been online a lot in a while, but things are finally looking up and I'm trying to make things better for myself and others. :)
