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.

I am Humpty Dumpty

I am Humpty Dumpty

broken doll symbolizing broken woman

I am Humpty Dumpty, precariously perched on the wall of my life

I am Humpty Dumpty, slowly tumbling off

I am Humpty Dumpty, but what you don't know is that I've fallen too many times

you've only heard about the one that wrecked me '

but I've been falling and failing for years

this broken mass on the ground has been in the making for a decade

I have been breaking since the beginning

but this time there is no getting up

there's no band-aid to hold me together

but Humpty gets a chance when i don't

because there are no kings

there are no horses

there are no men

and there is no one trying to put me back together again.

I lay here in a heap of all i once was

self destructed

I used to be the girl that perched up high and smiled down on everyone

not because life was grand

but because life was a mess

and in a mess sometimes you need a smile

but I never got one

I sat on my wall and tumbled off

I laid in my depression and soaked up

I walked in my anxiety and freaked out

I played in my head and screamed loud

I--I screamed so loud nobody heard me
