Why dimdaze

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.

I took over my father’s blog September of 2017 after losing his battle with mental illness. This blog was originally to share my journey through grieving, finding peace, and trusting God in the process...and in many ways is exactly that. This has evolved into life as a family of 4 with 2 dogs, living in the Midwest. I will cover everything from fashion to our family routines. Join us on this crazy adventure!

  1. I’m 58 too and I think I have a better grasp of how I make myself miserable. The Beatles said you can learn how to be you in time, it’s easy. Its not easy but its worth a shot.

    1. Great comment. I was dealing with major depression when I set all this up a few years ago. When I look back, it’s l someone else did the work.
