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 Second Before You Respond

The Second Before You Respond

What breaks the whole

subsumes it

What breaks your heart

consumes it

Trying to run from your fate

is like trying to dodge the wind

You’re everywhere

and nowhere

all at once


You’re chaos veiled with narrative

You’re narrative veiled with a smile

Belying the raging rapids, your life

is your personal turmoil

In its churn

you gleefully gasp

tricked by the importance

of your own words

Can you outrun your doubts?

Can you wait for your destiny?

Your answer isn’t important

what matters

is the second right before you respond

In Walking, I Find Myself

In Walking, I Find Myself
