The Taboo of Suicide

I love Headspace. Elektra recently linked me to their Youtube channel so I thought I would share this before going into my topic of today’s blog. NAMI debunks myths about suicide… After reading NAMI’s article, I wanted to repost the Myths and post my own take on the “Facts” that they posted. I’m not aContinue reading “The Taboo of Suicide”

Kicking Off National Suicide Prevention Week

I started trying to plan out what I was going to do for this week and I realized that I almost overwhelmed myself. I’m really invested in this topic so I want to do well with it, but I also don’t really have experience professionally writing about mental health. All of it is my ownContinue reading “Kicking Off National Suicide Prevention Week”

Prep Work

I did it! I really, really did it! I built up a nice sized buffer of entries for the blog. I’m almost worried now that I’m going to jinx myself by saying it. By the time I took the screenshot below, I had most of the posts ready except two or three. But I’ve managedContinue reading “Prep Work”

September 2.0

It’s September! I said that yesterday. Part of me even thought that I should maybe change the topic of yesterday’s post, but I feel like September 1st isn’t the only day that I can talk about this. Not that this is not an important subject… I just wanted to give myself a day to letContinue reading “September 2.0”

Drowning

I lost all my buffer days, which has really hit me hard. I was doing good creating posts, but then it just all hit me like a ton of bricks. I have a therapy session this Friday so that’s something to look forward to, but I’m feeling guilty that I haven’t been working on myContinue reading “Drowning”

Sleepless in Wherever

Tried the breathing exercise and some music tending exercises. Worked on meditation. Brain is running thousands of miles a minute. After tossing and turning and changing positions a hundred times, I gave up and decided to write this post. I’m going to be packing my step daughters lunch in a few hours. Splurged and gotContinue reading “Sleepless in Wherever”

ADHD

I haven’t ever been diagnosed with ADHD, but part of the program is my Bipolar. A ton of the symptoms fit within the same realm as Bipolar and doctors don’t like over diagnosing… I’ve been watching the ADHD TikTok a bunch lately and sometimes you just have those “ah ha” moments. Where things really justContinue reading “ADHD”

Insomnia

Sleep has been a problem for most of my life. I don’t have insurance right now so I can’t really get a sleep study done. One of the many joys of the health care system in the United States. Gamble with your health or risk all your funds on a cold. YAY~! I suppose itContinue reading “Insomnia”

Tiny Chaos

So I’ve shared pictures of the chocolate shoppe before. I worked a little on that today. Put the sign and it’s hanger up on the building. Glued some of the treats into the case and fastened the cookies into their boxes. I really hate the wire chair and table that came with this set. TheyContinue reading “Tiny Chaos”

Our Mental Health Journey

Sometimes mental health care is like being stuck in a canoe by yourself. You’re paddling and paddling, and you’re just turning in circles. You might need someone in the canoe with you to help you get moving. Whether than be a therapist or doctor. Sometimes you feel like jumping out of the boat is betterContinue reading “Our Mental Health Journey”
