Thoughts for today....

Often I find it difficult to concentrate.  My mind wanders off into realms I mostly care not to remember, difficult times and situations not for the faint hearted.  But, with perseverance and thanks to Write to Recovery site I've managed to jot down some legible thoughts and ideas.  I used to think my lack of concentration was because I was stupid, but now I know for sure that its nothing to do with that.  Rather, lack of concentration is a side effect of my current mental health condition....Today I'm feeling liberation from years of verbal abuse....Keeping up the good fight and finding ways to move forward healthily.
