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.

Where I Trace My Lines

Where I Trace My Lines

silhouette of anxious man scratching his head

why did it take so long

to be myself

to open my arms

to embrace

who i am?

the miles i have walked

in others’ shoes

in clothes unknown

reading yesterday’s news


today is the day

i find myself

i throw open the windows

to the fresh air

that i left behind in my youth

to the open spaces

from which i emerged

through which i will pass

and to which i will go

it was always

supposed to be this way


ending up

on a road, willfully predetermined

these empty spaces are

where i trace my lines
