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.

Dreams of Anxiety

Dreams of Anxiety

anxious man standing in smoke

One day my anxiety woke me

from the grips of a fretful slumber

I was young and unaware

that such dreams

were not as real

as they seemed

Tickle Dreams we called them

An innocuous name

for wrenching pain

stomachaches

emanating from

unknown, psychedelic enemies

holding me in purgatory

half-aware

of the battles that were not there

An image that haunts

is an image all the same

Like anxiety

clenching wisps of smoke

that I alone could see
