Stress Really Kills

There are so many ways stress can kill you. Increased levels of cortisol, which is regularly referred to as the stress hormone. Raised cortisol levels stand in the way with learning and memory, lower immune function and also bone density, and as well increased high blood pressure, cholesterol and heart disease.

Chronic stress is risky/dangerous to health and can guide you to an early death from cancer heart disease, ,and other health problems. It does not matter if the stress comes from major life occurrence in life or from minor problems. They both can be deadly.

Whether it is minor stress, or major stress, it does not matter, stress period isn’t good for your health. It may seem like stressing isn’t harming your body, just because you don’t realize it. You May be thinking that illness is entirely the blame for those irritating but constant headaches, the very frequent insomnia, or even reduced efficiency at work. But stress can most definitely be the cause.

Hello everyone!!! I hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. I want to talk to you guys about stress. Stress KILLS!! It recently took a good friend of mine, and my sisters as well. It is really no joke, You know you hear these things but it doesn’t really hit you until it happens to you or someone close to you. She was only 26yrs old so beautiful, young, and full of life!!! She also left behind her beautiful baby girl, she’s only 4yrs old. She doesn’t understand at all. How do you tell a child that their mom is never coming back home! This is so hard for us all, it caught us all off guard! She was actually just with me, she was so happy I got me a place. She was suppose to help me decorate and all, but I guess God had other plans. I just wish she could have stayed with her daughter a little longer, you know? So many people are so shocked about this happening to her, she had a heart attack. It really doesn’t matter the age at all, anyone can catch a heart attack. Honestly, I’m so hurt about this happening, but she was so stressed out. Stress isn’t good for no one, and I’ve been telling so many people about my friend’s Marckeyshia death, and that stress kills, I have to also remind myself that. Dealing with major depression and anxiety, I need to constantly remind myself of this.

Everyday I remind myself that stress can kill you, It’s no joke at all. Take care of yourself and stress less.

Marckeyshia was a sweet person in and out, there was nothing about her you wouldn’t like. She was a great mother to her daughter, she always kept a smile on her face. You wouldn’t have never thought she was so stressed out, but she was. What makes it so hard for me, I was just with her a day before she died. We talked, we laughed, and we even cried a little. I just wish I could have taken all her pain away. I wish she could have lived longer, not for me, but for her precious daughter. This is a hard one for my sisters, and I, as well as her sisters and brothers. I’m praying for them all. She struggled, she was so stressed, God knew what was best. Marckeyshia Monique Washington I love you!!!!! I promise I will look out for your baby girl, I promise that if she need anything and I have it, she have it!! I know I can never be mom, but I promise to never let her forget you, and i will do the best I can for her, because right now she doesn’t understand that mother is not coming back. She said to a aunt, my mama died, she always dying. She know her mom has passed out before. (tears) I can’t stop the tears, we all have to keep our self together though.

This is truly a wake up call for us all, her sisters and brothers, as well as my sisters and I. Stress is real and depression is real. I’ve been knowing that it doesn’t matter how old you are, anyone can catch a heart attack from stress or just a heart attack period, but this happening has really shown me it’s no joke at all. It is in fact real, and being stressed out can actually kill you. Everyday is a reminder for me, because I deal with anxiety and major depression, so stress is in there so I wrote down some ways to help manage stressful times. Stress can affect your body, your thoughts, your feelings, and your behavior. Stress kills, it’s real. If you recognize stress symptoms, it can help you to know the symptoms and how to manage them. Stress that’s not checked on, can definitely contribute to many health problems, like high blood pressure, obesity, and diabetes. Taking care of yourself is a must, stress kills, and believe me it’s real.

I found out along time ago, that it doesn’t matter how old you are, you can most definitely catch a heart attack. It has no age, and if you aren’t taking care of yourself, or have a sickness, than you’re at a higher risk for a heart attack. Losing a close friend is so hard I’ve been being strong as much as I can. I know death has no age, or a heart attack but she was so young, beautiful, and a great mother. When you’ve been knowing someone for so long, and talked everyday, or saw each other everyday, It makes it even harder. I know she’s in a better place now, no more pain, and no more stress. I know she wouldn’t want us stressed, or in pain because she’s gone, she would want us to live. Even though It’s hard I will do just that and do my best because stress is real, stress really does kill. It took my friend. I promise to be there for her 4yr old daughter, anyway possible. I promise to always show her pictures of her mother all the time, and to let her know mom is looking down on you and to make her proud. I promise to be there for her through the hard times, and the sad times, because when she start growing up she’s going to have questions, she might even cry at times, because a little girl losing her mother is a hard thing to deal with. I can never take the place of you, Marckeyshia, but I will be there with her every step of the way, me, as well as my sisters, and your sisters. She have all of us.

Fly high baby girl, Marckeyshia!!! We love you and most definitely going to miss you!!! We promise to be there for your baby girl.

This year has been rough, so many deaths, so many losses. But I have to keep pushing, I have my son who needs me, now my friend’s daughter, and I promise to push harder. Stress is real and it’s no joke people, if you find yourself stressed out, take deep breathes, find out what’s good to relieve stress, get some help. There are many things you can do to relieve stress, I have a list of things down below. Check them out once you are done reading. It took me awhile to actually write this, because It’s all still fresh, the pain is still here. Lost a good friend on, 7/17/2019 and also a classmate before, life is so short you all need to enjoy life to the fullest because you never know when it’s your last time here. Smile, laugh, love, and enjoy your love ones. Remember, don’t stress over things you can’t change and definitely don’t sweat the minor things, stress is real and stress kills. Down below are ways to help manage stressful times. I loss a good friend to it, plus she had diabetes. I know she was stressed out, being a single mother, It is rough but I wish I could have one more day with her, to let her know like I did before, stressing isn’t good, I love you take care of yourself please, or If I can help with anything you know you can come or call me at anytime. Marckeyshia was just like me though, she just didn’t want to feel like a bother, or hated to ask others for something no matter how close you were, you just don’t want to bother others. I am the exact same way we can be close kin, and I would feel like a bother. No matter how close we are, we could talk everyday all day, and if I need something, I wouldn’t ask. I don’t know why or why if I know for a fact that person would help me, why wouldn’t I ask. That’s just me, I don’t know why.

That’s what a lot of people tell me, that they don’t understand why I do that, why I never tell them I needed the help, or need the help. I couldn’t tell you why. I just don’t like to feel like a bother. But I would just be worried and more worried on the inside. Really driving myself to a migraine on the inside, because I need the help but would really hate to ask, really hate to be a bother because times is hard for everyone. That’s stressing. This is why it is good to talk about everything, as long as it’s someone you trust, I would really sit and talk to them. If it’s someone you trust and it’s someone you know wouldn’t mind helping you out, I’d say go for it that’s one less of stress. Down below are some ways to relieve stress, and ways to help with stress. There’s so many ways to relieve stress, for every stressful moment, in your life. Take a look, try them out and tell me what you think, it’s not good to stress, it’s not good for your health. So, we are all going to do what’s best for our health which is stress less, always pray, and know that everything is going to be okay. Know that you’re blessed and you have no time to be stressed.

To blessed to be to stressed.

Ok, indeed stress symptoms can affect your body, your thoughts and as well as your feelings, and yes, even your behavior as well. Being able to recognize these stress symptoms can actually help you manage them. Stress that’s left unchecked can lead to many health problems, such as heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity, and as well as diabetes.

If you’re having stress symptoms, there are many ways and steps to take to help manage your stressful moments, and doing so can also have health benefits. Research stress management strategies such as:

Doing, and getting physical activity

Practicing relaxation methods such as breathing, meditation, yoga, tai chi or massage.

Maintaining a sense of humor

Spending time with family and friends

Making time for hobbies, such as reading a book, writing, or listening to music

Line up to find active ways to manage your stress.

Inactive ways to manage stress — such as watching television, surfing the Internet or playing video games — may seem relaxing, but they may be increasing your stress over the long term.

Make sure to get plenty of sleep and eat a healthy, balance diet. Avoid excess caffeine and alcohol and tobacco use, and the use of illegal substances.

When to seek help

If you’re not sure if it’s stress the cause or if you’ve taken steps to control your stress but those symptoms continue, make sure to see your doctor. Your doctor might want to check you for other causes. Or even think about seeing a therapist or a professional counselor, who can help you identify sources of your stress and learn new coping skills.

It’s best to learn new coping strategies about stress symptoms. Stress symptoms, is a silent killer take care of yourself and know the signs and symptoms of stress. Do what’s best for your health, and don’t stress. It is indeed true, to not sweat the small stuff because stress can most definitely kill you.

Take care of yourself and know the signs and symptoms of stress. Remember do not stress! Also, I hope you guys are having a beautiful, and blessed day today and I hope you have enjoyed what you’ve read. If so, can you please like and follow for more. Thanks in advance, and Part 2 on stress really kills coming up soon.

Face Depression… “When Depression Comes Knocking On Your Door”

Sometimes we get to where we just don’t feel like doing nothing. We feel all these emotions like riding on a rollercoaster, feeling lost and sometimes it feels like you just can’t control it. Experiencing different mood swings, and some people feel like you’re over exaggerating. Not knowing what you’re feeling or dealing with.

But those are the people you shouldn’t surround yourself with. It’s simple. Negativity isn’t the key on your journey to healing or coping. Dismiss yourself from all that ignorance.

Below is a poem I wrote….. about depression.


When Depression Comes Knocking On Your DoorPoem by me: Face Depression

Depression is real, depression is a rain of tears, and when depression comes and when time passes by, it becomes all of our biggest fear. Depression is like a sad and very tragic film, that makes our tears freely flow and flow. It’s a sad film that makes us all cry at night, wondering will we ever when win this fight, not knowing why we cry so much at night, and can’t understand this plight.

Depression is a friend I would like my family to really know but they say “just let it go!” Depression is like a rope tied so tight around your wrist that we don’t know if it still exists.

Depression is like a bad nightmare that stops you from sleeping up all night and your mind just keep overthinking. Depression is the voice that keeps ringing in our heads depression is just like having a scary monster hiding underneath your bed.

Depression is a ghost that haunts you whether you want it to or not everyday is a scary sight. Depression makes you feel like you’re already dead scared to even enter the next day. Depression is like a bullet through your heart it kills you everyday leaving you very distraught.

It is a victorious and very painful word that’s forever being said. Depression…. depression isn’t a very kind visitor. Depression isn’t gold from a chest. So, if and when depression knocks on your door please don’t answer it if you’re not ready for the expedition.

Depression want to make you feel as if you’re all alone until you get to the point to where you just don’t know anymore.

Hello Everyone. I Have A Problem… If Anyone Can Help It’ll Be A Blessing.

Good afternoon everyone, I’m trying my best to enjoy this Friday. I hope you all are doing great on today. I feel like today couldn’t get any worse. I’m not working at the moment but do have a income but I don’t get paid til next week on Thursday, and I’m behind on my Entergy bill from helping my sister with my niece’s funeral. I normally pay it online. I have half and I’m short 60$ I was wondering if any of my followers could really help me out, I’ll be able to repay you guys Thursday. If you can it’ll be a big help. I really don’t need or want my son in the dark.

P.S if you can’t it’s very understandable, and God bless you still, and thanks anyways. I don’t like to ask or bother others but it don’t hurt to try especially when it comes to my son.

I did payment arrangements and now I have a disconnection letter. I do have cash app and Netspend if anyone can help. $jackiechristopher

Anything would be appreciated.

Hello Everyone Sorry It’s Been Awhile But My Niece Died

Good morning everyone,

I hope everyone is doing great on this Monday. I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted, but I lose my niece. It hurts so bad. So to all my beautiful/kind followers I’m sorry for the long time gone. The funeral was Friday just passed and it still hurts so bad. I just need a little time. Her death was definitely not expected and we were so close. She was just 20 years old. She had diabetes, went into cardiac arrest. (Tears)

Just need some time you guys. Please pray for me and my family. We need it. To see my son cry omg. Teedy will miss I love you always Jamirah Janae.

Please understand why it’s been so so long. I never would’ve thought, my niece.

It hurts entirely to bad you guys. I just pray God takes this pain away. I just don’t feel the same.

I’m not even sure I can pay for my blog, I helped my sister out with the funeral and stuff. I had to. Hopefully I can figure something out to make it work. Thanks for understanding everyone. This is one hard pill to swallow.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy New Year!!!!

Well well well… it is now 2020!!! We made it in safe and it is truly a blessing. Because somebody didn’t wake up, somebody didn’t make it to 2020, so it is definitely a blessing to see a new year.

I’m wishing nothing but the blessings to you all and your families. I pray and wish that all of our dreams (your dreams) come true, we just have to keep pushing through, we have to understand that not everything is going to go our way. Keep the faith and no matter what… always remember, that it’s never to late to accomplish your dreams, or should I say your goals.

I have many great wishes for all of you… I pray that whoever is going through something, feeling so not loved, or feeling like not a thing in your life is astounding, remember that it’s a new year 2020 its a new beginning, a new chapter, to do and to accomplish your goals. You can make it happen! Don’t let nothing or no one stop you. Do what you got to do for you, you can make your aspirations come true.

A year has gone by and new year anticipates all of us. This new year expects us. A new year comes with promises, resolutions, and last but not least… we can make positive changes in our lives, that’ll lead towards a positive and beautiful future. Take last year for instance, if you didn’t accomplish your goal last year, it’s 2020 a new year let’s make it happen.

A new year is a change, while that change we believe we can change right along with it. It takes dedication, you have to be determined to change. If last year wasn’t your who’s to say this year won’t be?! Just like the freshness from Gain’s washing powder, I hope and pray that the new year brings a lot of excitement and accomplishments for us all. I’m counting my blessing everyone and wishing you all more.

Choose to make the rest of your life the best of your life.

It’s a new year 2020… anything or anybody negative you have to dismiss them. Being around negative people, rubs off on you. Choose to be joyful and not happy because joy is a constant delight, choose to make your goals a reality.

— Face Depression


So once again, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE, especially to all followers.

I wish you all the best. I wish that the new year brings love, accomplishments, positive changes in life if needed, and I wish nothing but motivation and inspiration to continue to fight, and achieve your goals in life and also to remember that you’re not alone in this. Yeah we may suffer with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, or ocd, but we’re all humans… and we all can succeed and accomplish our goals, and live happy and free.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

Hello everyone, I know I’m a little late but…..

Merry Christmas everyone!!!

Merry Christmas 🎄🎁

I’m sending hugs to you all… and I hope everyone enjoyed their Christmas. Especially the kids. They look forward to Christmas. I know mine enjoyed his Christmas, with his birthday just 7 days before Christmas he really enjoyed.

That’s just some… lol. There’s plenty more. Jayden really enjoyed his Christmas, which mean I enjoyed mine because seeing him smiling, happy, and thankful for everything made my day.

I also teach my son that it’s not about the gifts for Christmas, but it’s when Christ was born. To remember the birth of Christ (or Jesus) I teach him that without him none of us would be. It’s about being thankful, thankful for Christ, family, friends, and love… gifts are fine but it’s not the actual, or the only meaning of Christmas.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY SON JAYDEN!!

Me (Jackiee) and my son Jayden. Our birthdays are right by each other, I’m dec.14th and Jayden Dec.18th.

I actually started this post early yesterday, but my son’s dad and I brought cake and ice cream to his school and brought him to eat out at his favorite restaurant. Saturday we’ll go to laser tag or the trampoline place (depends on what he decides) since his birthday was on a school day this year. So yeah… like I was saying, I actually started this post yesterday but I got so busy with it being my son’s birthday.

Mental Health: How To Keep Pushing When You Feel Like Giving Up

No matter how victorious you might be in business and life, success doesn’t give you impunity and humanness. To be honest, we all have our bad days, especially days where you don’t want to get out of bed. What happens when we feel so low, what happen when we feel our purpose, what do we do when we feel like giving up, whether it’s a relationship or employment? Also, what if this feelings and emotions last weeks, months, or even years?

Some days are light but motivating. Some days are purely procedures. And some days you may think to yourself “ugh, I give up.” You just feel like giving up on everything, i everyday tasks.


Remember that saying what doesn’t kill you can only make you stronger? Well sometimes it doesn’t always make you stronger. Sometimes it’s really hard in life, sometimes life is way more than you can carry. Stress just piling up, one stress to another. Stress piling up when you haven’t gotten over the first blow. It be blow after blow sometimes.

You’re hobbling on, but each day gets harder and harder. It’s harder to tend to your commitments, harder to care about anything or anyone, including you, and it’s even harder to get out of the bed almost every day. Ideas don’t even come to mind, new ideas, making just about everything feeling like you’re just floating through antidote. This only adds to your sense of failure.

You really want it to end, most times your spirit threatens you to shatter under an immense load of bad events, thoughts, or feelings. Not to mention, holidays are often the hardest time, as you’re trying to cope with really high expectations that far exceeds the resources that’s actually available. High-quality images of people and their lives that doesn’t match your reality. It’s very very painful.

The atmosphere is very dark, and your strength is gone, so what’s there to do? What can you do? like right now? Perhaps all your brain wants unconsciousness, yet your body solely knows one thing. When broken, even at the extremities of suffering and pain, your body still strives through. When aiding your body can actually help your mind.

Very often we as people neglect our physical health when we feel low. Caught up in mental and emotional battles. If you really think about it, our physical needs is really another burden to carry, so we kind of ignore them. Honestly, we have to acknowledge the battles and set them aside for now, rather than being consumed by feeling and thinking. All we have to do is, something practical, but it’s to help ourselves. For example, you need to focus on survival, yes it’s strange but it’s true. Our minds rest easier in a body that is usefully occupied.

When you keep yourself occupied constantly, you’ll find peace than your body and mind can be at ease. Our minds can rest much easier and function correctly, in a body that keeps active. “Face Depression”

You need both your mind and body to work together in order to feel better.

I’ve experienced those days before, that’s why I know how to deal with those day when they come approach. We’re all humans, we all have some some days and some bad days. But we have to do what’s right/what’s best for our mind and our body.

I’ve came up with some ways/somethings you can do when you feel like giving up. Check it out…. give it a try. Let’s not stay sad let’s get happy

Why I Blog On Mental Illness/Mental Health Disorders? Read To Find Out Exactly Why

Mental illnesses often, well always, goes without any understanding, most people actually believe it’s all a fake, like it’s all in everyone’s mind. Especially if the illnesses aren’t visible. Which is so unfair to those who’s actually suffering.

It’s sad that people actually think all mental illnesses can/should be seen. And believing that it can’t or won’t happen to them. Those beliefs… makes me sick! It can happen to anybody, no matter your lifestyle, your skin color, or your age, mental illnesses don’t discriminate towards no one.

Many people feel that mental illness is rare, something that only happens to people with life differences, situations, very different from their own. Believing it will never affect them. There’s studies of the epidemiology of mental illness indicate that this belief is very far from accurate.

I blog on mental illnesses because they are very real. It can happen to anyone, it doesn’t have to just be because of a person’s life differences, or situations. But it can most definitely happen. No matter how old you are or what color you are. It doesn’t matter if you’re a girl or boy, man or woman.

Now on the other hand…. sometimes mental health problems can happen from certain life situations. But not all the time. I blog because I know how it feels to feel extreme sadness, dark emotions, and always feeling guilty. Those heartless feelings. Feelings that have you feeling guilty for just thinking them.

I’m here to tell those who don’t believe in mental illnesses… do some research, it’s real. Mental illnesses are so real. It’s just the same/just as important as a physical illness. Stop with the negative stigma about mental illnesses if you’ve never ever experienced one or more of mental illnesses. How can you judge something that you’ve never had to lug around day and night? Something that can really be severe to fight. It affects how a person think, feel, or mood. It also affects how you behave, and function. What’s so hard about understanding, and excepting that?

Those beliefs and those negative comments on mental illnesses is very discriminating and very selfish. Especially to those who don’t understand it or who have never experienced any of the conditions. The negative comments, the negative stigma towards mental illnesses makes me so furious!!

I blog on mental illnesses because The darkness of depression, bipolar, and panic attacks are so real, the pain and heartache, the emotions as well as feelings, can be severe. Symptoms of mental illnesses can be life threatening, so tell me… how it’s not real?! To those who say “it’s all in our minds.” We wish it was all in our minds!

Who wants to feel depressed, sad, guilty, or catch panic attacks or anxiety attacks for the hell of it? That’s just crazy! Now that’s insane to even think that! Just plain ridiculous.

That’s why I’m here…. to spread awareness, and to let others know that it is okay if you have a mental health disorder. You have no reason to be ashamed about it, and you have no reason to hide it.

If not taken care of, like getting treatment, mental illnesses can take over your life. Depression (major depression), bipolar disorder, ptsd, and ocd can be treated. Just like all other mental illnesses. Just like physical Illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.

Mental illnesses are the exact same way, when a person is diagnosed with cancer, they have to get treatment and take their medications, it’s the same thing with your mental health. It’s okay if you have to take medications all your life, your mental health matters. Don’t let depression or any other mental illness take over your life. The plan is to fight back and regain your life.

Getting treatment, asking for help, and by taking your medicine how it’s prescribed to you, and also keeping up with your appointments… and last but not least…, going to therapy.
