About the Author

Bio: I am a mom of 2, a gr. 7 and 8 teacher, and writing is one of my passions. I have written many short stories and poems. I even have one piece published.  I believe it is very important to talk openly about mental health, to try to reduce the stigmas around it. One way I’m trying to be open, is this blog! I hope I live to see the day that those who suffer from mental illness will receive the same respect and public support that those with cancer or heart disease do. The only way that can happen is if we who suffer, refuse to suffer alone and in silence.

  1. Hi Amy,

    I landed on your web page while I was surfing on the internet.
    Thanks for the helpful articles.
    I liked reading them.

    I am running the I.A.C – Inscribink Authors’ Circle. We are a developing website with 10K+ followers on Facebook.

    Would you be interested in sharing one of your articles on our website, with as many links as you wish in it?

    Or, would you be interested in being one of the writers on our new website project?

    Thanks for considering. Let me know if you have any questions.
    P.S. (Your article must be not be published before.)

    Regards,

  2. Well done, Amy. I have enjoyed what I have read so far on your blog. I appreciate that you are able to give people a vivid and raw experience of how anxiety eats into our self esteem and very soul if it gets half a chance. Your writing is refreshing, no fancy mumbo jumbo words, just truth. Thank you.

  3. I am SO impressed at your ability to speak to truth. Nothing can break a heart as much as when you hear your own granddaughter say “I can’t live, I have to fake it!” — I completely understood what she was saying. I love it that you are not afraid to speak out and tell it like it is!!

    1. I sadly identify with your granddaughters comment. It’s so hard to have to be “okay” when you daily live with struggles that make you feel just the opposite. It’s exhausting. I want to live an authentic and real life, yet don’t know how to do that when hiding my struggles. It’s hard for others to understand unless they live with them.

  4. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog? My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would definitely benefit from some of the information you present here. Please let me know if this alright with you. Thanks!

  5. Hi Amy,

    For some reason when I reply to your yahoo email , my message bounces back..

    So, I had to write my reply here:

    ” Hello Amy,

    Thanks for your kind reply…

    First of all, Congratulations on your blog’s success!

    To begin with your first question: No, you never ever lose your copyrights of your written pieces when you publish on Inscribink.com. Your written pieces are all yours, [period].

    The reason for our website’s existence is to spread the word of the writers. You can have the same article on your own website, too. Whenever you want us to remove your post from our website, just send us an email. However, once we publish your article on Inscribink, we would like to keep it at least 6 months on the show.

    Once you join our community, you may realize more traffic on your blog, too. That’s why we have sub-site called Blog-O-Sphere. We also promote your web page, totally for free.

    The topics we prefer on our website has a wide range of variety. You can have more information on the link below. This link is about “guest posts” , but actually the criteria does not change for our featured writers.

    We would be honored to see you among our writers.

    Please let me know, if you have further questions.

    Regards,

  6. This is really interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger. I’ve joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your wonderful post. Also, I have shared your web site in my social networks!

  7. I in addition to my friends were found to be following the great helpful hints found on the website while all of the sudden developed a horrible suspicion I never thanked the blog owner for those tips. Those young boys happened to be absolutely excited to see them and already have simply been using those things. Appreciate your genuinely well thoughtful as well as for deciding on such remarkable subject matter most people are really desperate to discover. My personal honest regret for not saying thanks to you earlier.

  8. Thank you for making it a goal to reduce the stigma about anxiety and depression. There are so many who live with this in silence. You are much appreciated, and i hope your talent and work do not go unnoticed. Keep up the good work!

  9. Hi,

    Just want to say: thank you :). For blog, what you are writing and how you are writing , because for people with depression for example, it is extremely hard to read … anything. But I like read your posts.
    Just keep going you are very appreciated!
