Well, I would like to introduce myself.  My name is April.  I’m a single mother with a soon to be 9-year-old.  I like to read and research certain topics that interest me.  I suffer from mental illness, but use the diagnosis as fuel for writing.  I have been diagnosed with Major Depression and Schizotypal Personality Disorder.  Writing is my therapy, so I plan on doing a lot of that on here.  Through my posts, I hope you get to know me better, and that my experiences can help everyone in some way.  I am going to do something I’ve never done before; rip myself completely open for everyone to see.
