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.

Maps are Liars

Maps are Liars

I thought I would find what I was looking for

In plans and maps of my dreams

But it wasn’t there

It wasn’t life

It wasn’t what it seemed


I thought I could muscle my future

Into the broad, idyllic light
But fate had other plans for me

It had designed another life


Soon I realized the fallacy

Of wishing for paths to be mine

I had to learn to trust myself

And open up my eyes


Maps are liars

They create false visions

Of where I thought I’d go
Now I know I’ll see much more

If I relax and join the flow
