Getting published. "You don't define me."
I was recently inspired of transforming my blog series "Scars of who we are." on my webpage www.AuthorJcooper.com into a book, in hopes of reaching more people. I'll also be going more in depth with my struggles with depression, anxiety, growing up in a broken home, being a victim of child abuse and since I've recently been diagnosed with C-PTSD, i'll be looking back through the lens of knowing what I know now.
I hope that a published book format would help me reach more people who are in need, let them know they're not alone and how my faith help me survive. That even though I may be a broken and damaged individual, I'm still here, I'm still standing.
The funds I receive through the campaign will go towards both editing and publishing cost. I'll use any excess funds to donate to a charity to help those suffering from mental illness and who need help. If I can, I'll also try to send free copies of my book to those in need who may not be able to afford it. I want everyone to know, that' they're not alone, that they're loved and having a diagnoses doesn't define who they are. Where are not are illness.
