My Disability Matters Club

Sam Dailey’s (Madd Dawg) Blog

Hey guys. I am a new member to this club.

Welcome to all members of MDM, old and new. It is a privilege to have found this site and to be able to connect with all of you. I myself have Aspergers along with what was recently diagnosed as Bipolar Disorder and PTSD. It has been a difficult number of years after graduating from college seven years ago. I have been suffering from depression and grief for that long period and emotionally I have been numb to it all and viewed the world and myself as a lost cause, to put it mildly. Then just a month ago, I woke up from the seven-year nightmare and am trying to make everything right again. I want to connect and share with people of all disabilities my story, hear their story, help others suffering, and pointing out the strengths over the weaknesses for those still going through what I have been through. One of those key missions for me was starting this blog which you will see a link for below.

I encourage each and every one of you to check it out. It is still very much in its infancy but I post everyday. It details from the first person (that’s me) the journey to recovery from the depression and road to independence, all in real time. There are even some overly emotional posts that deal with my occasional frustrations which we all have time and time again. But the overall message is very positive and is a happy ending being made in progress, even though the real happiness comes from the journey itself. As a new member of MDM, I would love to contribute my story to many others, which includes currently existing members posting blogs which I have read and they are very thought out and insightful. And I say that with full sincerity. And of course feedback for me would also be greatly appreciated but of course, that’s only if you are comfortable doing so. Thank you all and always remember, if something matters to you, then it matters. Period.

I would love to share with you a link to my blog.

I post everyday and while people in the environment I live in say my tone in some posts is too angry and detracts from my message, I strongly disagree and urge anyone who feels like they are the only one not being heard or understood, to click on the link. You won’t regret it 🙂
