Carolyn Dumas-Simons is a retired health care practitioner in Ajax, Ontario. She has a clinical diagnosis of generalized anxiety disorder and P.T.S.D. She is so much more than these diagnoses! Two of her poems; “Warrior in Training” and “Where or Where Has My…” were previously published in MindFull Magazine, The Poet (UK), 2021. Carolyn found the uncertainty of the Covid pandemic damaged the balance between her mental wellness and mental illness, and sought treatment. Taking risks at creative writing about mental health challenges is part of her recovery for well-being.
