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.

College Campus

College Campus

man riding scooter through college campus

on campus

double standards abound

boys wear sweats, with holes

girls wear tights, with sheer

boys wear shoes, with dirt

girls wear heels, with straps

dressed-down masculinity

hyped-up sexuality

seen on campus


girls prepared, yet tense

boys relaxed, yet tense

it’s a communal pressure cooker

leaving space to experiment

but everyone is the same

open doorways

lead to image-obsessed minds

attached to image-obsessed phones

inside of image-obsessed colleges

where the customer

is always right

What if today

What if today

Chinks in my armor
