If you are struggling with life, feeling like you just don’t know if you can do it anymore- please reach out to me or one of the resources listed on my Mental Health page. I am ALWAYS willing to help you get support and talk with you. I am NOT a medical professional- I HAVE LIVED IT, and still do struggle at times because I am human. I care. Please know that. Please check out the Menu for more topics & resources.
Welcome to Written by Dida. I write about chronic illness, mental illness, addiction/recovery, relationships, realistic finance, life in general, and any current hot topic. I strive to be honest, realistic, compassionate, accurate, informative, and helpful in my writing. I don’t really like to ‘sugarcoat’ things, but I do believe in being appropriate, and kind, unless there is an extremely good reason not to be.
Check out the Menu over to the right for all the things offered, or scroll on down and visit the Resources section.

Mask Anxiety Cards
A new version of my Anxiety Cards specifically designed to help you through the panic that can attack when you have to wear a mask. Meant to be used in combination with “The Process” described in my Mask Anxiety article. I hope they become as useful to many as my original Anxiety Cards.

These are interview questions I have designed to gather information for my articles. The answers are automatically anonymous. You are only identified if you choose to be. For now, many of the subjects have more than one link because I haven’t figured out how to move them from Survey Monkey to here. I promise I will as soon as possible. I also add topics often, so check back for others you are willing to answer. My articles are to raise awareness about these topics, and also put out information that may help others.
“Negotiations with My Body” Series
My new series based on my internal dialogue. I released part 1 on fibromyalgiaresources.com in hopes of reaching more people. I plan for this to be an ongoing series with monthly installments. Frequency may change based on the response.
Part 2 of my series was released before the first because I got impatient, but it isn’t necessary to read them in order.
