Not So Random Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! By now I am sure many of you especially those who live in the United States that a small airplane was stolen from SeaTac Airport. Sadly, it did crash and the person who stole the plane is suspected to be dead. The news is saying that this was a “suicide mission and not a terrorist attack.” The person who stole the plane was a grounds person for an airline at the airport. I am unable to comprehend how this was able to happen post 9/11. Another thing I am unable to comprehend is that if the man who did steal and crash the plane was suicidal why the media isn’t discussing more about mental health challenges and how it affects society as a whole. My heart goes out to the family of the individual.

On that note, I am switching the topic drastically. I am changing it to dental care. Specifically, my dental care. I think I have a tooth abscess.  I think it’s an abscess because I have had them in the past. If it doesn’t get better by this time tomorrow, I am taking myself to the emergency room to get it taken care of.  All I know is that I have a high pain tolerance and my tooth hurts like hell.

As many of you my regular followers, have noticed, I haven’t been blogging as much. I have no excuses on why I haven’t been blogging as much. The blogging community is a community, I am proud to be apart of. We are a tight nit community and I have seen very little drama within the blogging community. So to my followers, I thank you for allowing me to be apart of your community.

Thank you for reading. I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Peace Out, World!!!

Let’s Get Fucking Real

Good Morning, World!!! Over all it has been a good morning. As good as this morning has been I am angry. This anger has lead me to write this post. I am fucking going to get real here.

I don’t fucking understand why that only time America discusses mental health and suicide is when a mass shooting happens or when a celebrity dies by suicide? Why in the fucking hell does the media wait to something tragic happens. The month of May is mental health awareness month and not one news station in my area discussed mental health unless there was a school shooting involved.

We as not just a country but the world need to discuss more about mental health and suicide. We need to lessen the stigma that goes with it yet nothing is being done. I share bits and pieces of me here on my blog. I have emailed my politicians and local news stations yet nobody appears to give a rats ass till something tragic happens.

So, here I am sitting at my laptop attempting to lessen the stigma of getting help with a mental health challenge and/or suicidal thoughts or actions. I want people around the world that you are not alone in this battle. It is not an easy feat to battle depression or anxiety or any other mental health condition or suicidal thoughts however if you seek out help from people it can and will get better. I’m not going to lie and say its always going to be peachy keen when you get help and get better but you will have the skills to help you when things to get bad again.

The National Suicide Hotline number here in America is 1-800-273-8255. I don’t know Suicide hotline number for other countries or I would be giving those out as well. Please if you are struggling with your mental health and/or suicide please reach out to someone.

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

Late Evening Ramblings

Good Evening, World!!! I sit here at my laptop attempting on what I should do next with my evening. I have already ate, taken a shower and am in my pajama’s ready to relax for the night. Not sure what I am going to do except watch the news. News that always seems to be so negative.

I have had a pretty good day.  Having structure in my life is always a good thing for me. As difficult as therapy was for me today it was a good session. As I mentioned in an earlier post we discussed what I could do differently to not attempt to take my own life. One of those things is having my cat, Lil Gertie around. Another thing is to attend groups to help with the structure part of my life that I need.

I think I am going to work on one of my workbooks. The one that is strengths based. The one that I am on the topic of courage. Courage is a difficult topic for me and I have no clue what. It is something to talk to my therapist about.

Life is good. I think I am going to go for a walk now. Have a great evening. Peace Out, World!!!

Reading To Help Me

Good Afternoon, World!!! As many American’s may know is that there has been another school shooting. This time in Texas. We need to have better and stricter gun control here in the United States.

I have been reading a great deal today. It has helped not really deal with what is going on. The school shootings are just too much for me to handle. I can’t even imagine how the students and families are dealing with it. That is why I have been reading my Star Wars book today.

Thank you for reading. Have a great weekend Peace Out, World!!!

Friday Morning Random Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! I am still depressed but I am making plans for the day. Plans that will help me get out of my own head. Getting out of my own today will be a good thing as my depression is acting up slightly at the moment.

One of the things I plan on doing is reading. I, of course will be reading my Star Wars book. I am immensely enjoying the Star Wars book. I am looking forward to what the next book in this trilogy of the Star Wars book.

Like I mentioned in my last post my therapist is taking a vacation day so his supervisor is going to be doing my check-in with me today. She is an extremely nice person. In fact she likes that I idea that I have a check in on Fridays and Mondays about my weekend plans and how those plans went.

I think I am also going to be doing my workbooks. Specifically, my recovery workbook that focuses on strengths and recovery. Recover from a mental health challenge. I know I have recovered from one as it is only one of hand full you can recover from but I believe with my other diagnosis I can have the symptoms subside to where I can say I am recovered for me.

Some sad news now. There has been yet another school shooting. This time in Texas. They are are saying that an “unconfirmed eight people are dead.” Why do these shootings keep happening? This is why we need gun control in this country.

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

Waking Up In Pain

Good Morning, World!!! I woke up in pain due to the black I got from getting hit by a neighbor. Good thing I see my doctor today regarding my eye. My doctor is awesome

I don’t have much going on today other than going to see my doctor. I plan on relaxing today. I plan on reading my Star Wars: Heir To The Empire book. I love reading. It helps me escape my reality even if it is just temporary.

I am watching the morning news. It appears that all they talk about is the royal wedding. Don’t get me wrong I think it is cool that Prince Harry is marrying an American but its all they have been talking about for weeks now.

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

Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Good Morning, World!!! If you read my last post you know I got punched by a neighbor. I got punched in the face and have the black eye to prove it. It hurts like hell. The doctor told me last night that I have a slight concussion.

I am sure that when I see my therapist today that we will be discussing the assault as well as other things. Things like my safety regarding my neighbor being violent.

I also see my psychiatric nurse practitioner today and I am sure she will be discussing the same thing my therapist will be talking to me about. Except I see her before I see my therapist.

Right now I am watching the news. I don’t understand what the big deal is regarding the royal wedding. I’m not saying that I don’t care about it. I am just saying it doesn’t need to be discussed everyday for a month. Yes, I know it is this Saturday but I’m already sick of hearing about it.

There is a cloud cover here in Seattle which is making it a little cooler than yesterday. I wish it wasn’t cooler as I love the warm weather. The news say it is suppose to get up into the high seventies which I am thrilled about. I just wish it was in the eighties again. The eighty degree weather will be here soon enough.

Thank you for reading. Have a great day. Peace out, World!!!
