The Other Me

The Other Me

Originally, when I started The Other Me, I began the story with my first actual panic attack (at 19), thinking that (for a blog) that was the best place to jump in. When I’d finished serialising my adult life, I went back and covered my younger years, where I’d experienced neurotic symptoms that foreshadowed that first panic attack.

Last’s week blog was the last one (before that first panic attack), so the story’s complete.

For now.

Thanks to everybody who stuck with The Other Me. I really appreciate it. I hope it’s been entertaining, and also given you an insight into neurosis.

In the new year, I hope to still blog about neurosis (and other things), and one day I hope to compile The Other Me into an ebook.

Hope you all have a safe and merry Christmas, and a happy, healthy, and prosperous New Year.

    Hi Les. I’ve been meaning to leave a comment for ages, but haven’t really known what to say…after all, telling someone you’ve “enjoyed” reading about their darkest moments seems really perverse. I really admire the straightforward way in which you write about mental illness. It’s such good writing. Thanks for putting it out into the world. I’m looking forward to whatever comes next.

    Merry Christmas to you too!
