Moose Senses Tingling

I tried to explain to Sheryl how I feel today, I always try to let her know about my feelings to get them out in the open and off my chest to attempt to make me feel better.

Today though I have this strange feeling in the pit of stomach that either something bad is going to happen or something is going to go wrong and I cannot for the life of me put my finger on it.

It is almost like sensing impending doom I feel queasy but not sick, my IBS is playing up due to stress but I have no idea what I am stressing over besides this uneasy sense of “something bad is coming”.

There is something not right in the moose world today and it is bugging the hell out of me, worse still is the worry if anyone knows where I am coming from!

Money worries never leave me, health worries are always here so is it just the depression?

Sometimes I get overconfident in terms of my recovery and it likes to bring me gentle reminders that I am still a work in progress but this feels different.

Anyone else willing to decipher this because I’m baffled and frustrated!


My Bright Idea Part 1

So after thinking long and hard about how we can spread the gospel according to the moose I am thinking about working to publish a book of poems written and/or short stories by people with depression and other Mental Health Illnesses.

I have a few of my own to go into the book but this is where you come in!

Would you be willing to submit your efforts for me to add to the book? I read a lot of poetry on here and it blows me away how talented you all are so I am sure we can create something between the whole of us!

It can be published as a book for kindle or something. You don’t need to have a kindle to read it as you can download “kindle for pc” from amazon to enable the book to be read, I know this as I did it the other day to read a short story written by Rob Roper (nice plug for you Rob, invoice is in the mail)

The plan will be to spread the word around wordpress, twitter, facebook and anywhere we can think off to bring this to fruition maybe with enough submissions to create a series of books. This is somewhere else where I will need your help!

What do you think? willing to get involved?

Ideas for titles? artwork? Would love to get some feedback on this as it would nice to read books on mental health from those of us who suffer as opposed to experts telling us how we should react and do things?

“Tales from the Asylum – A real look at Mental Health from those who know best” is my idea for a title so far LOL so you can see where I need some help!


Email me at with suggestions or submissions and if this takes off there will be one hell of a party at depressed moose manor 🙂

I can just imagine it being serialised in the press highlighting just how “normal” and talented people with mental health illness are and in the process helping in the battle to end the stigma!

Altogether now “50 shades who?” <giggles>
