ABOUT A MANIC WORLD
A Manic World is a blog about depression.
Its authors comprise a collective of bloggers from all around the globe, who experience this sort of malevolent, but sometimes beautiful dis-ease, in some form or another.
The aim of a Manic World is a simple one:
To share stories of both depression, and mania, from the perspective of people who live in these states.
The struggles. The pains. The torments. The grief. The impaling lows. The petrifying highs.
But also the light.
While depression is an issue that has an adverse, highly negative affect on the lives of many people, at a Manic World, we want to create a platform that is not bound by social-stigma. The nature of depression is a bleak one, but it is made bleaker when it is faced alone, in the shadows.
A Manic World is a blog here to breathe some fresh air into a stale situation.
Our aim is to make this site into a conduit through which awareness on this matter can not only proliferate, but also entertain. And who knows, maybe even enlighten?
It’s a manic world.
To truly laugh, you must be able to take your pain and play with it – Charlie Chaplin
