Why the title, “dimdaze?”
It is made up of two words, dim and daze.
- Dim – not bright; obscure from lack of light or emitted light.
- Daze – to stupefy or stun.
No rocket science here; just two plain ole words put together.
Originally, I created the blog to share my experiences regarding mental illness; a no holds barred, in your face, real-life approach to discussing mental illness. It seemed to me there are not many people willing to talk about such a taboo subject. I understand, I’m 58 and I just came out of the proverbial closet.
I finally told the director, my supervisor, and few coworkers I feel I can trust.
The key here is that I am 58 years old. I have suffered from mental illness since I was in my teens, and I’ve made it this far. Hang in there.
