My name is Charlie, I am 32. I have anxiety, OCD and depression. I also struggle with being a perfectionist. This blog started as a resource for me to vent, it still is, but I have also found I enjoy writing even when its not being used as a coping strategy. I have found poetry helps me in expressing myself. But since I first started writing poetry I have expanded onto other subjects around everyday life and feelings etc. I don't see my mental health problems defining me, but, whether I like it or not they have defined some parts of my life. I also have Dyslexia so some of my spelling and grammar may be off from time to time.
Also, since writing I have published a book which is available on Amazon "Words From An Unlikely Poet" which is the first, of what I hope will be many books to come.
I can also be found on twitter @hasler_charlie
