Hi there.

Look, I have a birthmark on the top of my head.

Welcome to Nerve 10.

I’m Jordan, and I created this site because I couldn’t find mental health information on the Internet that I could relate to.

Nerve 10 is where you will find the most accessible, most meaningful mental health stories and poetry on the world wide web.

My goal is not to regurgitate technical terms and generic information—it’s to create a more realistic and helpful mental health narrative.

Behind the Pain

Behind the Pain

man hiding his face with his hand

Pain is not pain

It’s removing the fear

Courage isn’t courage

It’s removing the pain

Completely different

And one and the same

No matter the path

The outcome remains

Pain is not fear

And fear is not pain


If you told me your answers

I’d have you get more

If you gave me your wisdom

I’d try to ignore

Because deep in my being is courage and pain

Mixed with some fear

Behind, I remain
