Today Marks Four Years

Good Evening, World!!! I know I just posted about the overall good day I had about an hour ago; I forgot that today marks four years since I started blogging. It is hard to believe that it has been four years since I started blogging.

In those four years it is my hope that reached out to people and educated folks to lessen the stigma of having a mental health challenge. It also comes to my conclusion that I have use my blog as a journal to give out hope. Hope to those who may feel alone in their mental health condition.

Well that is all I have to say about me blogging for four years. Have a great day. Peace out, World!!!

Up Way Too Early

Good Morning, World!!! I woke up at three o’clock in the morning in my neck of the wood and have been unsuccessful in getting back to sleep. So, when I was unable to get back to sleep I decided to make myself some hot chocolate and listen to a podcast about philosophy. When I listen to a podcast, I take notes on them. I take notes on the podcast so I can look up the information myself. I do this so I can educate myself to the best of my ability as well as know what the hell I am discussing when I talk about it to others.

After listening to a podcast and looking things up, I decided to read. Read my Star Wars book that I recently got. I am highly enjoying the book. I haven’t read any of the Star Wars books till I started the one I am reading yesterday (Sunday). It is an easy read.

I think I am going to end this post and go back to reading. Thank you for reading my blog. It is greatly appreciated on my end. You all are extremely awesome. Have a very good day. Peace Out, World!!!

 

Late Lunch With Friends

Good Afternoon, World!!! I spent time with friends. We met at Red Robin and ate there. I had my usual, The Whiskey Bar-be-Que Burger. I love Red Robin and spending time with my friends.

We discussed what we were doing with our lives like we always do. We mainly discussed are careers and education. I discussed my job interview yesterday and how I feel that I nailed it. I hope I really get the job. One of my friends discussed her getting into the University of Washington (UW) school of Social Work to get her masters degree. She says I was her “inspiration” to get into social work.

We also discussed the baseball game we are going to this Friday. They are rooting for the Seattle Mariners while I will be rooting for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I being from Anaheim will root for the Angels no matter what.

Thank you for reading!!! Peace Out, World!!!!

May Is Mental Health Month

Hello, World!!! May is mental health month. Today, is the first day of mental health awareness month. I hope that I can have at least one educational piece about mental health each day of this month. I can’t promise I will be able to do so but I can at least try.

My goal for mental health month and beyond is to help lesson the stigma about mental health. For me stigma is one of the biggest issues that we who have a mental health diagnosis struggle from beside our symptoms of the illness as the the side effects of meds.

Thank you for reading and hope you can help me with fighting the stigma that goes to having a mental health challenge. Peace Out, World!!!

It’s Been A Good May Day

Good Evening, World!!! Today has been a great day. I, of course went to my job interview. I feel like I nailed it. It well off really well or I thought it did.

Another thing I did today was meet with one of the politicians that serves the area I live in. I discussed with him about the recovery and peer support. He appeared highly interested in both. In fact our meeting last about an hour.

When I got home I emailed my other politicians about the same thing I discussed with the politician I met with today. Except I left it short and sweet. It is my hope that I can meet up with one more politician before the end of May but I know realistically won’t happen.

Thank you for reading. I feel satisfied with what I did for May Day 2018. Peace Out, World!!!

May Day Plans

Good Morning, World!!! This post is different from my last post. I won’t be discussing my job interview nor the anxiety that goes with it. The exception is that it is part of my May Day plans. A minor part of my May Day plans.

Not only is today May Day but it is the first day of Mental Health Awareness Month. So, as many people protest and/or march for whatever reason they choose to; I am not going to do either. I am going to be emailing my politicians about mental health and set up meetings with them for sometime this month if they are able to do so. In fact I already have a meeting with my state senator today after my job interview. It was kind of a fluke on how it happened but it happened it is scheduled for the first day of Mental Health Awareness month. What better what to start the month that meeting with your state senator than to discuss mental health and the service people need. As I mentioned earlier I also am emailing my other politicians and hope to plan a meeting with them for sometime this month. Realistically, I know it might not happen but it sure is worth a try especially since it is mid-term election year.

So here is to being able to educate politicians about mental health even if it is through email. Have a great day. Happy May Day and Peace Out, World!!!

Plans to Fight Off Depression

Good Morning, World!!! I am thrilled to have 300 hundred followers. Yes, I realize I posted a really short post about this already but it is a big deal to me. It’s a big deal to me because it means people are actually interested in my blog.

As I think about what I am going to do for the day I noticed that my depression is trying to ruin my day. I am bound to not let the depression ruin my day because I have plans to make it a lazy and relaxing day. For me depression can easily ruin my day I today I am setting my mind to not let it do so.

One of the things I’ll be doing today to make it a good day for me is reading. Reading has been a great go to coping skill for me as of lately. Being able to concentrateĀ on reading is a huge deal for me as it has been difficult for me to do until recently.

Another thing that I will be doing is listening to podcast. Specifically a podcast on philosophy. I have been learning a great deal about the topic of philosophy and realize that I it is a subject that I enjoy. A subject that they would have taught when I was in high school.

Thank you for reading. Have a wonderful Sunday. Peace Out, World!!!
