Living proof Launch


A BOOK has been launched in Swansea aimed at combating the stigma associated with mental health problems.
Living Proof is a collection of prose, poetry and drawings by people with mental health problems. The book’s author Michelle Healy from West Cross has suffered from mental health problems and found some of the book’s content through a blog she writes about her illness. Mrs Healy said: “The book lets people know about mental health. The words are powerful and they are written by people who are ill.”

Having never found the courage to talk to anyone during these dark times nor seek help, David suffered in silence. In 2010 his daily life was crushing him and he was crying out for help although feeling his pleas were mute. Fortunately his beloved wife came to his rescue and drove him to A&E where he finally found help and was referred to the correct organisations and mental health team who have been a rock in his recovery, supporting him on the long and winding journey to turning his life around, helping him become a more positive person and finally see light at the end of the Tunnel. > > Not only is David Parry a different person today with the nurture and care provided to him, his latest venture is to make another arduous journey; walking from liverpool to pyle in south wales to raise money for mind.org.uk > > Already he has received a pledge of£1000.00 and supply of footwear and clothing from Sean Smith, leading entrepreneur and ex-life partner of Gareth Thomas Welsh Rugby Captain and Big Brother contestant, whose latest venture JobBud is the biggest Job Site in Wales.

A poem by a follower!!


By David J Williams
Rising out of the dustbins and muck
A dishevelled old man
Who has run out of luck.
His urine soaked clothes
Are in need of a change
He doesn’t care, which is not so strange
Begging in the markets
Looking for money
People pass by
They think it’s funny
Not having much money
But it’s not is it?
He was once a proud man till he turned to the drink
He did it every day,
He never stopped to think
About the harm it would do
But he had to drink
To forget all that life had put him through
How grand he had been before
Awarded a medal for bravery
In some long forgotten war
But that was sold, and he grew old
Drinking away his agony
Everyday
How had he become like this?
He had a wife and two strong kids
But decay was there when he was young
So they taught him to march and gave him a gun
And told him to go out and kill someone.
Now he is alone awaiting his death
The time has come to breathe his last breath
But no one will notice his certain demise
For no one will open up their own eyes
To see him fade away.

A poem by a follower who cares????


Who Cares?

I sit here. Staring blankly at nothing.

So many thoughts running through my mind.

It hurts, it burns.

Hatred flares through me like raging fire.

It doesn’t stop, it never will stop.

I hate all this, I hate myself.

I feel sick. I feel tired.

I reach my palms out and beg for help.

I wished there was someone who could understand.

I was wrong, so so wrong.

I went to someone whom I trusted.

I tried to tell him my pain, I prayed that he would understand.

But he just threw more daggers against my heart.

Not only didn’t he understand but he saw me mad.

He kept telling me how ungrateful I was.

That there were many people whom were more unprivileged than I was.

What do you know? Have you been through the pain I have?

You say you know that everyone has a story.

But you chose to deepen my wound with your words.

Maybe you didn’t mean it, or maybe you did.

Depression isn’t something that I would choose to keep.

It isn’t fun to feel frustrated and hopeless everyday.

Depression is like acid.

Slowly eating you up inside every single day.

I feel so bad. I don’t know how to stop the pain.

I pull out my blade and give myself a swift cut across the shoulder.

Blood oozes out. I smile at it without flinching a bit.

I feel numb. I feel good.

Cutting is my only escape.

Countless scars everywhere. Who cares?

I give up on hope.

I give up trying to get help.

I surrender myself to depression.

For only depression would accept me for who I am.

Not like everyone else.

There is love that came for us,

He broke my shame

And yes he loves us,

Thinks for us and we can  not deny.

So let your name be lifted higher,

We are stronger sin is broken.

Yes we are stronger.

Sin is broken,

Yes we are loved.

Trust in who you are!!


Kneeling on this battle ground.

Trust in who you are.

Its always about him,

We are nothing without him,

We limit his power

If we trust in self not him.

He wants the glory and rightly so.

A powerfull influence to me!


My Father is a man like no other,

He gave me life, 

Hurtured me, shouted at me,

Kissed me, but most of all loved me.

 

There are not enought words

I can say to describe how important he is to me,

And what a powerfull influence he continues to be.

I love you Dad.

Life is a lot of work!


Life is a lot of work. What is it that gives us the strength to continue when we are tired and burned out? Sometimes an inspirational idea can help us renew ourselves and be filled with strength to fulfill our life’s purpose. Inspiration comes in many forms. However, the root of all inspiration is the idea that our lives are meaningful. Inspiration is knowing that what I do matters deeply to the universe. When you have the feeling that your actions are meaningful, you will become filled with strength and vigor to fulfill your life’s purpose.

Colours will turn bright!


Something was done

I don;t think it was right

To staeal my mind

Like theif in the night.

The  terror that visted,
The phantom of pain.

By day dissappering

To return by night again.

Cold hands that touch,

And strangle my heart,

That causes my soul

To be torn appart.

The sensation of feare,

The anger of hurt

unlike being muddy,

Can’ wash of the dirt.

All you can do,

Is try understand

And reach out to grasp

An outstrectched hand.

Colours will turn bright,

You just got to

Claw your way back.
