My goal is to make mental health a little bit easier to deal with day to day. It is a life long struggle and something that we have to deal with but it doesn’t have to be debilitating.
Just a manic moment
As I sit here laying in bed in the early hours of the morning I can’t help but wonder... why is fate so cruel to make us fall in love with somebody we will never have.
Why shows should have a trigger warning when it comes to mental health
Why shows should have a trigger warning when it comes to mental health Shows have a warning for a lot of things, sex, drugs, language, but not for mental health issues. I recently started watching “spinning out” and honestly had to stop watching it because the main character and her mom are both bipolar and it was really triggering. It's a great show and really interesting but I just couldn't force myself to keep watching it because I was being so emotionally triggered. It wasn't a comfortable feeling and brought up a lot of emotions of what I am like when I'm having an episode.
Why Supplements are Essential for Detox
Why Supplements are Essential for Detox We were taught all of our lives that mind altering drugs are bad for you and to stay away at all costs… except for when you have a mental illness of course. Then it's okay to change your brain chemistry and who you are to fit in better in society. After being on medications for about five years I can say that there are for sure pros and cons of both being on them and being off of them. And whether or not you want to be on them is a PERSONAL CHOICE. I don't care what anybody says, it's your choice to take them every day and yes, some people desperately need them more than others. I can see both sides of the story of both wanting to be on them and not wanting to be on them. There isn't a right or wrong answer to the question of “should i take medication”. Because yet again, ITS A PERSONAL CHOICE. Nobody has the right to judge you either way.
Tattoos: Coping Mechanism?
Tattooing is something that has been going on for almost as long as humans have been on this earth. Yet for some reason, modern day society still considers them mainly taboo. Yes they are growing in popularity, especially with the younger generation however for many older people they are something to be looked down upon. What I don't think that many people realize is that tattoos can actually be a great way to cope and work through things when you struggle with mental health.
Listen To Your Body
Sometimes your body is trying to tell you something and you just aren't understanding. So a little bit of background on me… I break out in hives. Like a lot. It started when I was in college, it was sophomore year i believe. If i'm remembering correctly that is which doesn't always happen because it's been so long since its first happened. When I first broke out in hives I was shocked but not overly surprised at the same time. I have always had really bad allergies and so I would break out in rashes whenever I came into contact with one of my allergens. What did surprise me was how large they were. I have something called giant urticaria. That basically means that when I break out in hives, they're really big. Meaning they are almost always different sizes but i've had some that are bigger than my hands before.
