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.

The Purpose of Fear

The Purpose of Fear

woman jumping to conquer her fear

fear, pervasive fear

great weaver of our woes

you stop the heart

blacken the treads

and clench us amidst your throes

you hold us back

but we need you

you tell us we can’t

when we must

because it’s precisely by disobeying you

that in ourselves we learn to trust

fear, pervasive fear

sapper of strength and fight

if our resolve could be any stronger

it’s because you’ve created our plight

for fear is the path of the warrior

of the timid and arrogant, too

fear shapes the destinies of all of us

our lessons not away, but through
