Hey guys, still working on Abby's Hope despite my depression and PTSD doing their best to keep me in bed these days...
In the meantime, here's an idea of what will happen:
the romance parts of the story will disappear, as they have no reason to be there
some artists have agreed to provide illustrations
I will include some relevant pictures (like this one)
- several people have accepted to give testimony of what it is to live with mental illnesses
You are all welcome to offer any of these, a drawing of what "hope" means to you, a poem, lyrics of a song, a very short story... That will be included in relevant episodes, or even have their own episodes, depending on what you offer.
All willing to participate will, of course, be credited. Sadly, in the current state of things, I can't pay anyone, but you would all be free to use my characters and my story.
The purpose of this book, and of this rework in particular, is to help those who suffer from mental illnesses and their loved ones understand each other, end the stigma on those illnesses, and let people who suffer know that they are ot alone in their fight.
I recently lost one of my best friends to PTSD and depression, and this story is as much hers as mine. Please help me in remembering, and making sure she didn't die in vain.
Thank you for your patience, your support, your kindness, and don't forget to tell your loved ones what I'm telling you: you are amazing, you are precious, you are unique and you are very much loved.
