It most certainly does—and, I take pride in it! I can be feeling all sorts of “messed up,” and writing it out, changes much of that (if only temporary at times)—it does the trick! Much of what I deal with is confusion. I don’t know the rate of confusion in other forms of severe mental […]Read More Writing Grounds Me
Both my Twitter and Pinterest accounts were put on high alert this week. I seem to remember back in the day, that you could follow people in droves. Is that not the case anymore? Which kinds of activities are acceptable and which aren’t? I spoke to Ashley from Mental Health @ Home this week, about […]Read More My Social Media Accounts
I am saddened by what everyone goes through in this community of “good” people. I go through it too. I am right there with you. We have each other for support! It may be a like, a follow, a comment, or a post… but, we all have one another’s backs! Thank you (all of you) […]Read More We Are Worth It!!! (Words Of Encouragement)
This week I am making an observation: “Gratitude and intention are two of the most loving concepts.” Please reply seriously or in good fun. (Click here for past Philosophical Friday’s.)Read More Philosophical Friday
I hate this shit. Truly. You can’t make this stuff up! I thought (and still wonder) if Bernie dropping out has anything to do with my blog. Yes, I know that Sanders dropping out of the presidential race has nothing to do with my blog. But, what’s interesting is the belief that lingers, that hangs […]Read More Today I Thought That Bernie Sanders Dropped Out Because Of My Blog
I am scared of several things right now! My health, getting COVID-19, my wife’s health, and my wife getting COVID-19. I am also fearful of not being able to make changes to my daily routine (in order to address the things I need to for my overall health’s sake). I know that I can only […]Read More I Am Frightened, But Maybe That’s Good!
I just want to get this down. And, for the record, I have no alcohol or street drugs in my system (nor do I ever). That said, I am sure with this post title, I come across as being “paranoid.” Certainly stranger things have happened than a citizen being watched! But, what about all the […]Read More I Am Afraid Of The Government!
As I sit here in the middle of the night, unable to sleep, I am reminded that I have a good 20-40 years left of my life—if that (and, if I’m lucky)! And, this is entirely contingent upon my lifestyle/life choices. I am obese and I have been for 20 years. And, it all started […]Read More What’s It Gonna Take?
I am getting closer to figuring some things out. It’s about goals. And, I do better with one goal at a time. So, for today, it might mean that I have a degree of happiness. Somewhere on the inside… 🙂 I remain symptomatic, however, and I have both delusions and hallucinations. With schizoaffective disorder, I […]Read More What Can Stable And Functioning Look Like?
That’s a pretty neat thing to think about… Having courage for a particular situation or set of circumstances. I have always been a fighter myself. For my whole life too! There were some low moments, like when I had some of my “breaks,” and was all over the place. But, perhaps the moments that stand […]Read More How Long Did It Take To Have The Courage To Say, “I Will Fight This?” (Week Five)
