I am Sonja Lingen , 46 years , three children , Dutch, divorced and already working on myself for 5 years now.

Four years ago, I became depressed, I was  depressed for 2 years , then I divorced  , and at the end of 2012 I thought  : ” Now my life can start again “.

But in February 2013  I got a cerebral hemorrhage instead , and in November 2013 I needed an operation on another bad artery , by access through a hole in my skull.

Before all this I had a life in which I experienced  many  other things  , so let’s just say , I have “some experience”  with life .

When I was depressed , I found out, that writing helped me with clearing my head and I really enjoy writing.

I started my blog in March 2014 , when I started writing in a more clear way, this way is easier to share with others.

Everything else that has happened to me,I want to share some day too , but I need a lot of time to make that readable for others .  Before, I didn’t write by subject , but all my writing was pages  filled  with everything that was in my head at that moment . Not very clear or easy for someone else to understand.J

Why I want to share this?

First, because there are people who said, I should do something with everything I write.

And wenn  I was thinking about that , I thought I actually may have something to share.

When I went through all this myself, I couldn’t find much information about anything,  so even if there’s only  one person who can get some help or comfort out of my stories , I didn’t  share it for no reason.

And maybe it’s also interesting  for the people around me, to read what is/was really going on inside of me.

  1. Thank you for following “A Way With Words.” My joy in writing is made more complete when people read what I’ve written (and even more as they respond).

    I write primarily about faith and mental illness, but I’m also known to dabble in other subjects, stories, and even the occasional poem. If you have any requests, please let me know.

    I appreciate what you are doing here. You have a powerful story to share. I pray you are blessed in your life and writing, as you bless others.
