Up Next On Mental Health… Stay Tuned

Hello everyone!! I hope you’re all enjoying your Saturday. Stay tuned to my next post on why people with mental illnesses don’t seek help.

Hello Everyone… I Know It’s Late. But I Wanted To Say Hello. Also… Remember To Smile

Hello everyone!! And a special hello to all my new followers. Welcome, and thanks for the follows.

I decided to make a post and say hello to everyone, and to see how everyone’s day is went? Well if you’re day didn’t go to well… I hope I can make you smile.

Awww!! Right?!!

Aww!! Right?! (LOL) knew I could make you smile.

Remember… not everyday is going to be a good one. But you mustn’t give up! You must keep it pushing! Every morning you wake up, look in the mirror and tell yourself “I love you,” and “you are beautiful,” and mean it! Brush your teeth, take your shower… the normal. Put on something pretty and fix your hair.

Make plans to do something with friends or family. Or even if it’s just going on the park and take a walk, get out of that house!


Woman, man, it doesn’t matter. Mental illnesses don’t discriminate. Men and women struggle with mental illnesses, and it can start at so many different ages. But with so much negative stigma about mental illnesses, not many get the help that they need.

Imagine those who don’t get help though. It’s tiring! It’s life draining! Omg. Just because you need help, just because you get help… that don’t mean you’re weak. It means you care about your health, you care about your mind, your thoughts, and your feelings and you’re tired, and ready to start healing by getting treatment.

Know that you are not alone. There’s many others who also face these dark feelings everyday just like you. Just like me. I realized a long time ago, there’s so many celebrities struggling with a mental illness. Or more than one. No one on this earth is perfect. I have no reason to be ashamed and neither do you.

Start living your life. Start enjoying your life. Life is to short. You are today and gone today. That’s how it’s been nowadays. For me that is. So many people I knew passed away. Some so young.

I hate watching the news, hearing about babies getting shot or a child got raped… I get depressed. I feel the pain for those people. Those families.

You don’t have to fall ‘victim’ to your mental illness. You can get help, there is treatment. No matter what the problem is know that ‘you got this,’ don’t ever give up! Keep fighting!

I know sometimes you might not feel as “pretty,” or as “handsome,” but you are!! You are pretty and you are handsome. Don’t listen to those negative thoughts, those negative emotions. Getting the help and treatment you need is the best thing you can do for you!! For your mind! Your soul! Your body! And much more.

Smile you’re beautiful!!!

And what’ll be even more beautiful is getting treated for your mental illness. It’ll be astonishing. It has for me. I’m a living witness.

Goodnight beautiful people!! Remember to smile!!

Stress is something we all come by at times, it doesn’t matter what day it is or it doesn’t matter what time it is, stress comes by. Sometimes it can be something so simple like being late for work.

Things so simple, could stress you out. A stressor is anything that disturbs homeostasis. It could be social or physical.

Yes, stress is a normal part of life. Many incidents that happen to you or around you– and many things that you do to yourself– puts stress on your body, you can come up against good or bad shapes of stress from your house hold or environment, your thoughts, and your body.

It can damage your health in irreparable ways– from heart problems, from early aging, and it could end up to long term disability. Being stressed out causes most people to make even more mistakes.

Besides sitting your keys one place, and thinking they are another place, stress can have a negative impact on your health. Being stressed makes it very difficult to control your emotions. It’s definitely no secret that stress can fall from the sky. Stress can bring on diseases, some are more subject to certain diseases and chronic stress can give these conditions the big green light.

Have A Mental Illness? Don’t Be Embarrassed, Getting The Help That You Need Shows Value

The stigma that surrounds mental illnesses causes most people to not even try to get the help that they need. They feel embarrassed, or ashamed to admit that they’re dealing with a mental illness. But getting help just shows that you have plenty strength. Those who struggle with a mental illness are the strongest. Don’t be embarrassed.

There’s so much negative stigma about mental illnesses, it’s so hard to not be embarrassed or ashamed. Right? But what’s said about mental illnesses aren’t facts! In fact, it’s said by people who haven’t even experienced it.

Matter of fact, the stigma comes from people who don’t try to even get the facts, or people who have no knowledge on Mental Health.

Tell yourself this everyday:

Today is a fresh start, another day to keep fighting.

Tomorrow there’s always a possibility of sunshine. Just keep trying.

Tell yourself this everyday that you wake up.

Yes most times it’s hard to understand your own mind can tear you down. A never ending remorseless cycle, the overwhelming sadness, emptiness, numbness, feeling glued in your own mind that won’t slow down. How every little essential task you once took for granted now feels so hard to handle, feeling so exhausted, and it’s so hard to complete. An endless race, or marathon, of thoughts and feelings. The dark ones feeling oh so real, and strong. Yes you know for a fact that most of that isn’t true, yes you know that it won’t solve your problem, but that doesn’t matter.

Whatever you got to do to get out, and get away from this terrible, terrible pain. You’re feeling like you’re going to lose your mind, like you’re losing control of your own mind. You feel like you’re being forcedly sucked into this black hole of darkness, loneliness. Feeling like you’ve lost control.

Then here comes the shame and the guilt. You hate yourself because you can’t seem to control your mind, questioning what’s wrong with you, why can’t you get it together. Why is this happening to me? My life isn’t awful. I really have no reason to feel this way, at all. Why me?! The remorseless cycle seems like it will never come to an end.

This is a type of pain that no one can see. Smiling at everyone, but feeling such emptiness. You try to keep your life moving on like everything is a okay. Everyday is harder and harder. By the time nighttime fall, all you want to do is sleep, tired and exhausted, from your mind overthinking, with different thoughts, racing by the minutes all day long. While trying to act “normal.” Is there anyone who actually knows what normal is?

You have to realize that it is reality and you have to face it. It’s not about what people say, or what you may see online, or what’s on social media, it’s not the perfect pretty smiles, or a family who has it all together. It’s people with flaws and raw emotions growing in love. I have learned that depression and anxiety do not care what kind of life you live, and they definitely do not care who you is.

You have no reason to be ashamed, or embarrassed. So don’t be. You have no reason to be. You didn’t choose to be that way. I didn’t choose to be this way either. This is real. You can’t just snap out of this, this isn’t something you can talk yourself out of. No matter what your mental illness may be, you did not choose it. I was diagnosed with major depression and anxiety, it has been a very long process but this is me. I am not ashamed of being on medications, and talking to a counselor. It feels amazing, and I can actually live! I can actually breathe! Getting the help that you know you need, you’ll be able to breathe, and you’ll be able to live!

Mental illness has a million faces and I am not ashamed to admit that I am one of them. Honestly, I don’t even care who know, and who doesn’t know. This is me, Jackie. I’m so glad I got the help when I needed it. I didn’t want to be another statistic. It’s always nice to know that you’re not alone, but what’s even sadder is how many people go through life without getting treatment. I’m so sick of the stigma about mental illnesses. I’m sick of all the negative stigma that’s thrown in with it. Just because we “don’t appear” to have issues doesn’t mean our feelings are invalid.

As I continue to grow in life I’m learning that this is part of who I am. I’ve been embracing it and learning to cope. I don’t care who judge me. I don’t care what people say about me either. It just makes me sad for them and happy that I finally found the small light flash to guide me out to get the help I needed to get out of that darkness hole. Even though my journey has been hard, it’s been tough, dealing with it all by myself, but I’ll never give up! I will keep fighting and I will keep pushing. I don’t wish this on anyone.

You can and will be so proud of yourself. Live in the moment and be very mindful. Everyday is a step, a battle waiting, waiting to be won. Nobody’s perfect so it’s okay to have setbacks. Please get the help that you need, talk to someone if you are feeling like this. Don’t ignore it, thinking you can take over it, thinking it will go away on it’s own. You have no reason to be embarrassed. You have no reason to be ashamed.

You didn’t choose to be this way. Don’t give up! And most importantly… YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Accept it, Face it, and Fight it!!!

Feelings And Your Mental Health Is Important

Feelings and mental health is important because it’s a essential part of your life and impacts your thoughts, behaviors, and your emotions… It plays an important part in the health of your relationships and allows you to adapt to changes in your life and cope with difficulties.

Good evening everyone, I hope you all are having a great day Sunday.

If you are feeling down or you don’t feel motivated today I am here to help that. I am going to help you revalue yourself. I am going to help you love yourself again. I’m going to help you care for you.

Most times, those of us with a mental illness, don’t feel pretty, or we don’t feel worthy, or we don’t feel love, or loved. But that stops now! No negative at all, all positive vibes.

You can use some of these tips to rebalance yourself, or to even keep balance.

Value yourself:

Treat yourself kindness and respect. Avoid self-criticism, and make time for some of your favorite hobbies, your favorite projects, or even take some dance classes. How you think about yourself can have a big effect on how you feel. Practice words that promotes feelings of self worth, like personal power.

Take good care of your body:

Taking care of yourself physically, can actually improve your mental health. Be sure that you eat nutritious foods, and remember to always drink plenty of water. One other thing, which helps decrease depression and anxiety, is exercising, it also improves your moods. Also, make sure you get as much sleep as you can, enough sleep. Lack of sleep contributes to a very high rate of depression. Mainly in college students.

Give yourself:

Help someone who may be in need of help. Volunteer your time and energy to help the needy. You’ll feel so good about doing something tangible for someone. It’s also a good way to meet new people.

Surround yourself around positive people:

Some people have stronger family support than others, but that’s okay because there are activities to get out and meet new people. Those with the strong support system, social connections are generally healthier than those who lack support. But there are support groups, you can meet new people at a club. Make plans with supportive people, it can be family members, or close friends. Surround yourself around people who care for you, people who got your back, people who are there to pick up your slack. Not just anyone.

Learn how to do deal with stress:

Whether you like it or not, stress is actually apart of life. There are ways to practice good coping skills: try Tai chi, or take a natural walk, or try writing in your journal as a stress reducer. Remember to smile, and see the humor in life. Many research shows that laughter is good and can boost your immune system, relax your body, ease pain and reduce stress.

Quiet your mind:

You can meditating, mindfulness, or even prayer. Relaxation exercises and prayer can improve your state of mind, and outlook on life. Meditation may help you feel more calm, and it would enhance the effects of therapy. There’s many resources on personal well-being.

Get help when you need it:

Honestly seeking help is a sign of strength— not weakness! If you get the appropriate care, and help, you can recover from mental illness, and addiction, and live a very rewarding life.

Practice forgiveness:

If it’s forgiving that person who cut u off completely, forgive them. Those who forgive have better mental health, and be more satisfied with their life.

Feeling stressed? Than smile:

It might not be the easiest thing to do, but smiling can keep you calm, as well as help your heart rate.

Do something with family and/or your friends:

Have a bbq or maybe a little cook out, play games in the backyard. Go to the park, take a walk and talk. Spending time with friends, or family, people are more likely to be happy.

Ways To Love Yourself, Love Yourself First

Being kind to yourself actually helps you to shake back, live healthier, and to stay on the right track.

Love Yourself First
Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Before I start I want you guys to do something before reading this. Look at yourself in the mirror and recite the following about 3 times: Your name, I LOVE YOU. Mean what you say while saying it. Don’t pay attention to anything else. Now anwer this? How did you feel? What feelings occured? Can you feel the words I love you? Some people are drived to tears while performing this simple, but very powerful assignment. Let’s really be honest, In order to love someone else you have to love yourself first. When you love yourself first, life will most defintely take care of the rest. If you cannot love yourself how can you embrace the love of someone else? You are likely to feel undeserving, while yearning for love and closeness of another person. That’s where hostilities occur.

When you love yourself, life takes care of the details because everything else is really minor compared to the faith in of one’s self. Nothing or no one can tear you down.

Self love is most definitely one of the best things you can do for yourself, trust and believe me when I say this, and some may not think so. Everyone has their very own opinion. But I say that self love is important, being in love with yourself gives you self-confidence, self worth and it will actually make you feel more positive. Self love defined as ”love of self’ or regard for one’s own happiness or advantage” has both been conceptualized as a moral flaw or as a basic human necessity.

When you hold yourself really high in esteem and actually know you are fulfilling your purpose in life, you tend to have more and more enjoyment and a more positive attitude towards your future.

Self-love can really motivate you to adopt healthy habits and to take care of your physical self. You may notice less anxiety and depression and you may notice that you’re more optimism. Self love is the best and it is indeed a better recovery from stress. Self-compassion is a way of relating to yourself that doesn’t involve harsh judging or even punishing yourself for every mistake you make, or every time someone may do better than you.

Self-compassion involves you treating yourself with the same kindness or concern and support that you would to a real true friend.

At times, when faced with difficult struggles, or even confronting personal mistakes, failures, and inadequacies, self-compassion responds with kindness rather than that very harsh self- judgement, recognizing that imperfection is part of the shared human experience.

Forgive yourself and love yourself. Always be true to yourself. You might not believe it, but how you treat yourself sets the principle for how others will treat you. Self-acceptance is the starting point to living a complete life when you show up with your complete self. Admittedly, there are times when you don’t feel at all loveable. It is normal and we’ve all experienced those moments. The honest truth. It starts and ends with YOU.

Your real personality is the most well built/powerful commitment you make to yourself. Your story of unworthiness is a lie made-up from others and increased over time, even though this isn’t really who you are. It is a constant statement and a developed description.

Never feed those doubts, positive or negative because you know what you give life to. Do not let your problems overcome you, use them to strengthen your real power. Work on being in love with the person you see in the mirror who has been through so much but is still standing tall. Stop caring about how you look, because true love from others, they won’t care about your skin tone, hairstyle, or weight.

In order to truly love ourselves, we can not let the way we look define our personal worth. It can’t be our only “calling card” for love, sex, or a relationship. It can’t be what determines our worthiness of joyfulness or family or a promotion at your job. Take a moment to think about it: the people that know and love us the most really could careless about our weight skintone or hairstyle or hair color. Yes the society we live in nowadays is focused, and obsessed with beauty.

Most of us are raised to admire beautiful people, such as successful actors, and models. Worrying about how Beyoncé look, or how thick and beautiful Nicki Minaj is It is what it is. But you are somebody and you are beautiful, don’t those with money and fame fool you. It ain’t all goody goody, trust and believe me.

Win yourself over and know that you’re an absolute 100% drop dead gorgeous catch, so don’t you even dare to treat yourself otherwise. Of course you may need to sometimes remind yourself ,and surprise yourself. Amaze yourself over and over with your musing ways. Don’t compare yourself, life is not a race so stop competing.

Self-love is actually a big journey. It definitely takes a lot of dedication, devotion, and a lot of practice. be determined to love yourself each and every day and you just watch how your best self is blossoming, and your greatest life unfolds. Think about how you really treat yourself on a daily basis as if you were another person, or dating yourself, in a relationship with you. Are you actually good to yourself? Is your mind good to your body, and soul? In my own spiritual journey, I notice at times we all:

  • *Beat our self up with harsh selftalk
    • We set ourselves up for failure with unrealistic beliefs.
  • Strip ourselves of things we deserve through self-sabotaging behaviors

Stop telling yourself you’re not worth it, and tell yourself you are worth it, and you deserve it. Stop beating yourself up. Love yourself first, and everything else will fall into place. I’m a living witness to this.

Loving yourself first isn’t selfish at all

Practice gratitude and aim true, write down 6 things that makes you smile, and things you’re grateful for. Be the real you, be the best version of you. Don’t just exist, live!! Find your purpose in life. Than you can share them with the world, if you want too. Listen to your body, take time to give your soul and heart happiness. Remember to always trust your intuition, it’ll never ever, ever, let you down. Appreciate every moment, and every time that we have on this beautiful earth.

Always be kind to others, and expect the unexpected. Be open, and be true to change. Always admit when you’re wrong, because nobody on this earth is perfect. Trust in yourself and know that anything is possible. Know that anything you put your mind to can be achieved. Straight facts. Always remember you are stronger than you think, and what others think about you, is none of our concern, or none of our business. Everyday that you wake up choose happiness, and know that no one is in charge of your happiness except you. Never be ashamed to ask for help, because the strongest people know when they need help, and the strongest ask for help.

Smile at that stranger everyday, because you never know, just by that moment, how much you made their day. Be careful, and be mindful, of who you open up to, because there’s not many that actually care, and majority just be curious. Now this is a fact, if someone wants to be in your life, trust and believe me, they’ll make they way towards you, they’ll make that time for you. Really though. Don’t worry about the details. Take time to find yourself, and when you find yourself, be that. It’s just that simple.

We don’t meet people just to meet people, trust and believe me, you met them all for a reason. It wasn’t accidental. You all crossed paths for a reason. Step out on faith at least this once in your life and live life with no regrets, and know that it is okay, to not have it all figured out yet. Know that you don’t have to always be strong all the time cry if you have to cry, give yourself time for everything to unfold. Don’t set yourself up for disaster, trying to please everybody. Real love requires inner work. First we must be happy with ourselves, be happy in ourselves, come to know ourselves, and to accept ourselves, and love ourselves. We have to find peace of mind, find our passion and our purpose.

Know that actions speak louder than words. Trust that(your) inner wisdom. Make sure to live the life you love. Some people wait all the way until Friday, all year for summertime, all life for happiness. Don’t you let that happen to you. Everyday, make a promise to fall in love with yourself. Practice self-love on a daily basis. It is vital.

Remember that you don’t have to, and you will not, put up with someone who is careless with your heart. And you don’t be careless with someone else’s heart. What you don’t want done to you, you shouldn’t do it to others. Very simple.

Always surround yourself with people who support you and inspire you. And know that in this moment, right now, you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.

Love yourself first, and everything will fall right in place afterwards.

Smile…. Beautiful!!!

Mental Health: Overcoming The Stigma About Mental Illness

Flawed beliefs about mental illness can cause significant problems. There are different things you can do about the stigma. You can learn about what you can do about the stigma about mental illnesses.

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com

Stigma is when people view you in a very negative way because you have this thing called mental illness. It is very common nowadays for people with mental illnesses to be looked at with negative attitudes and beliefs. It’s crazy!

The stigma about mental illnesses, can lead to discrimination. Discrimination can be very direct and obvious, such as someone, or people making negative comments about your mental illness and treatment. Or maybe it can be unexpected or subtle, such as someone keeping away from you because the person may assume you’re unstable, dangerous, or crazy due to your mental illness. Sometimes, you may even judge yourself.

Some of the harmful results of stigma can include:

Unwilling to seek help or to seek treatment

Insufficiency of understanding by friends, family, workers, or others

Trouble finding housing, fewer opportunities for work, or school

Harassment, or physical violence

Insurance that doesn’t fully cover your mental health treatment

The belief that you will never succeed at certain challenges or that you can’t make better your situation

There are ways that you can cope, and deal with the stigma.

Here are some ways you can deal with the stigma:

  • Get treatment. You May be unwilling to actually admit that you need treatment. Do not let that fear of being labeled with a mental illness stop you from seeking help. Getting treatment can actually give you relief by recognizing what’s wrong and decreasing symptoms that intervene with your personal life or even your work.
  • Don’t let the stigma about mental illnesses create shame, or self doubt. Stigma does not just come from others. You may actually think by mistake that your condition is a sign of weakness, and that you’re able, or should be able to control it, without help. Getting counseling, and actually educating yourself on your mental illness, and connecting with different people who have mental illness, can really help you overcome destructive self-judgement.
  • Do not isolate yourself from others. If you have a mental illness, you may be unwilling to tell others about it. Family or friends can offer you support if they know about your mental illness. Make sure it’s people you trust, but reach out to people for the compassion, understanding, and support that you need.
  • Don’t equate yourself with your mental illness. You are not your illness Don’t say “I’m bipolar,” say “I have bipolar disorder.” There’s a difference.
  • Speak out and about the stigma. It can really help introduce courage in others that’s facing the same challenges, while also educating the public about mental illnesses.

Don’t give up! Keep fighting! Keep pushing! And get the help that you need! You can do it! Face mental illnesses!

I’m owning my life and my story and I refuse to allow people to control how I feel about myself or how I view myself. — Face Depression

If you’re dealing with a mental illness get the help that you need. Don’t be ashamed about it because no one is perfect. We all need help at some point in our lives. And if you hear someone talking negative stigma about mental illnesses, just tell them they wouldn’t make fun of someone with cancer.

Dealing With A Mental Illness? Embarrassed?Check Out My Blog… Face Depression

Mental Illnesses are real and some can be very severe. Without getting help you won’t be able to heal. You won’t be able to get your life back in order. The first step is getting help, the second step is knowing about your health, your sickness and medications that’s going to actually help.

You are not alone

Getting or needing help does not mean that you are weak. Don’t listen to that foolishness. You are human, you are strong! Hell anybody dealing with a mental illness are the strongest people.

I really hate all the stigma that surrounds Mental Illnesses, because of it, people are ashamed or embarrassed to really admit that they’re dealing with a sickness. When mental illnesses are really the same as any other illness.

Mental health affects millions of people in America. It is really really time to start talking about it. Stop hiding it! Be open about it! Not getting help will just drive the hell out of you. Don’t listen to what others say to you, don’t listen to what others may think about you, get the help that you need so that you can breathe, and be the best you that you can be.

It’ll set your mind free, you won’t have to worry about your mind racing. You’ll be more calm, you’ll be able to think and get things done. You won’t have to worry about all those emotions, because getting the help that you need makes you more focused.

Getting the help that you need, you’ll finally be able to breathe, you’ll be able to live!

Always remember you are not alone, you are strong, and getting the help that you need just means you’re even stronger!!

You can live a great life with a mental illness as long as you take care of yourself, take your medications, and keep up with all your appointments.

Talk to your family doctor or therapist… You got this!! Don’t give up and keep fighting, don’t let depression or anxiety, take over your life. Face it! Fight it! Treat it! Beat it!

Maia Campbell From The 1994 Sitcom “In The House” And “Seventeen Again” Where Is She Now?

The most prettiest face that was on tv. Beautiful hair, beautiful smile, and beautiful skin. I use to watch the shows and movies just because she’s in it. Maia was deemed one of the most beautiful women in the entertainment industry. But unfortunately, things went downhill for her.

Maia Campbell

Maia Campbell(born November 26, 1976) is an American film, television actress and also model. She’s best known for her role playing Tiffany Warren in the sitcom In The House for five seasons. (1995-1998) Along with LL cool J, Debbie Allen, Jeffery Wood.

In The House 1994

I’m sure everyone remembers her from television.

Maia was the beauty of the tv show. With that beautiful hair, her beautiful healthy skin, and her beautiful smile that shined so brightly, I thought she was the prettiest girl on tv. I Grew up watching her on the shows In The House, Seventeen Again, and Trippin. She was nominated for a Young Artist Award in the category best performance in 1996.

She’s also known for her role as Shante, Lucky’s cousin, in the movie Poetic Justice. 1993

Poetic Justice

Maia Campbell is from Takoma Park, Maryland. She is the only daughter of author Bebe Moore Campbell and Tiko Campbell, an architect and author from Washington D.C. She was raised in the Ladera Heights section of Los Angeles. Maia Campbell went to college in Atlanta Georgia, Spelman. She was the only child, and was raised in the Ladera Heights section of Los Angeles. Maia went to college in Atlanta Georgia, Spelman.

One of her mother’s books is called 72 Hour Hold, it’s about a mother(Keri) struggling with her daughter’s mental illness(bipolar disorder) and her trials of getting treatment through a woefully poor mental health care system. Her mother learns that a seventy-two hour hold is the only help you can get when an adult child starts to spiral out of control. Maia was diagnosed with bipolar disorder right after being on In The House.

One book by Maia Campbell Mother, Bebe Moore Campbell. 72 Hour Hold

Campbell’s mother Elizabeth Bebe Moore Campbell Gordon was also penned for Essence in the 70s– she wrote four New York Times’ bestsellers and was a mental health advocate. Bebe Campbell was also a founding member of National Alliance for the Mentally Ill.

Shortly after leaving the show In The House, Maia Campbell had given birth to a beautiful baby girl named Elizabeth Gutierrez, in the year 2000. She was married to Elias Gutierrez in 1998. But the relationship just didn’t work for them and they ended up getting a divorce in 2002. She lost the custody over her daughter due to her health condition, and not taking her medication.

Maia Campbell and her baby girl Elizabeth in 2000

Maia Campbell’s mother(Bebe Campbell) passed away on November 27, 2006 and Maia’s life fell apart! Her mother died from brain cancer to be exact, and after that, that’s when Maia’s life fell right off track.

(Left) Bebe Moore Campbell And Maia Campbell (Right)

Everything spiraled out of control for her. Campbell revealed some years later that her mother’s death hit her hard, although they were mentioned to be estranged when she passed. This beautiful actress has had many rocky roads. Everything seemed to be falling apart for Maia especially after she refused to take her medications, and stopped her treatment. She has even been arrested over the years.

Maia was arrested for drug possession, prostitution, and disorderly conduct.

Maia Campbell’s mugshot

LL Cool J’s ex co-star Maia Campbell has been arrested for causing a drunken scene at a Waffle House. Maia Campbell should have just ordered in. She got busted at the restaurant in 2015. Cops got called to the restaurant for the former “In The Housestar was allegedly wasted to the max, and causing a scene. Officers did give her a chance to leave on her own, but she refused— and then left in handcuffs… and she was booked with disorderly conduct.

Not to long after that Campbell was arrested in Atlanta for going off in a Burger King. She cussed out a family member, accusing their child of stealing her wallet, and called the arresting officer a “fu**ing fa**ot!” It was said Maia denied using foul words, and claimed to only speak the “King’s language”- – which is either some strange BK dialect or maybe she even meant the Queen’s English. Not sure.

Maia Campbell was arrested 2015

Maia Campbell’s arrests had many people talking, and wondering what could have caused her to fall so low? What caused her life to go down the hole? She just clearly disappeared from the tv shows, and so much more. Her daughter!

But not taking care of yourself, and not taking your medications what do you expect to happen? It surely won’t be anything good. Maia Campbell we are all praying for you!

Unlike most people dealing with addiction and mental illness, Maia Campbell’s struggles was out in the opening for everyone to see. Her struggles has always been front and center. As a child of a lauded author, getting her first role at age 16, the actor dealt with her issues in the most public stages.

Sadly, while she should have been embraced and helped, most have consumed her pain for fame. Or should I say for fodder— enabled by phone cameras, social media and ignorance.

What Maia is going through isn’t a joke, it’s not funny at all. She should not be all over the internet like that. She is sick and she is lost, people should not be recording her or taking pictures of her, she’s somebody’s daughter and someone’s mother. Putting her in the spotlight to get a little fame, or recognition just shows you are in fact sick for recording it in the beginning!

I bet if it was your family member you wouldn’t like it. If that was your mother I’m sure you wouldn’t be recording it like this. Making fun of someone who’s sick, just remember karma’s a b$%$#!! Just plain ignorance. Mental illnesses are serious, and she’s dealing with a bipolar disorder, and it’s severe!

Maia Campbell, I’m not sure if you’ll ever see this but I want you to know that there’s nothing wrong with getting, or needing help. Bipolar disorder is very serious. Without getting the help that you need your life is history, and it doesn’t have to be like this. There’s plenty help for it, it’s just up to you whether you want the help.

You’re still a beautiful famous actress, mistakes happen and nobody’s perfect. I can only imagine the heartache you have because of your mother, do what you got to do to show your mother that you love her. All she ever wanted was you to get help, and take your medicine to get better. She’s looking down on you, you have a beautiful angel watching over you, as well as your daughter too. She needs you.

If you won’t do it for your mother, baby, do it for your daughter! She needs her mother, every child needs their mother. A mother’s love is all your daughter wants. She wants her mother to get well, so that you could be there for her.

Ain’t nothing like having your mother around. Just imagine the heartache your daughter is feeling, just as you’re feeling about the loss of your mother. You have a beautiful beautiful daughter, ain’t nothing like having your mother. Maia baby girl I’m praying for you. I’m praying God strengthens you to pull through this. I’m praying to God that you go and get the help that you need and stick to it. Do it for Elizabeth! She would be so proud. I would be so proud of you! We would all be proud of you.

Growing up you was one of my favorite actresses. I thought you was the most prettiest girl in the world, on tv, and you are still a beautiful person inside and out. Do it for your daughter, pull through this, and push harder.

Bipolar disorder disorder is a condition that affects the brain in a way that can cause severe mood swings that conflict in length. People with bipolar disorder can go from mania(the “highs”)—feeling blissful or revved up and irritable— to depression (the “lows”)— feeling down or hopeless. These highs and lows are called “episodes.”

Bipolar disorder is sometimes referred to as manic depression. There is no cure, but for many many people, the symptoms can be controlled with treatment. Some people may experience mood swings that are less severe than a full manic episode, known as hypomania. It just depends.

Maia Campbell, the most important thing I want you to know is that you are not alone!! Don’t worry about what others say, there’s many other people that traveled the path to a diagnosis and it started with talking to their doctor, or counselor. Get the help that you need so that you can start to heal, Maia. Talk to someone. We all fall short sometimes, and we all have ups and downs, but you pick yourself up again and try again! We have all needed some help in life, we’re all human.

Nowadays people are so quick to pass judgment, so quick to try and get a little fame, they see you struggling but it’s funny! Recording you, taking pictures of you during your struggle, and putting it all over the internet so that people can talk about you.

This is Maia Campbell (left) and an Atlanta rapper named T Hood(right) at a gas station in Georgia. He was actually there recording her on live!

A Atlanta rapper named T Hood, recorded Maia Campbell at a gas station in Georgia, it’s obvious she wasn’t in her right mind at all. She’s just in a bra and underwear. In the video that he’s recording he tells her to pump his gas, and you can hear her asking to buy drugs.

Why do her like that?! She had some teeth missing in the video, and she mentioned being raped with a condom and that it wasn’t human. Horrible! Maia also struggled with substance abuse. This is so sad that Maia Campbell is going through this difficult time. And the people around her just want a little shine. LL Cool J saw the video surfing all over the internet, the video had over 20 million views.

LL Cool J sees the video, and his response was…

LL Cool J is right though!!

Why are people so quick to pull out their phones and record people down and out? Someone who once was a celebrity at that. LL Cool J also asked his fans to help him locate Campbell to get her the help that she needs, because Campbell’s struggle with substance abuse had been a tumultuous one. She has relapsed in the past, and she’s also maintained sobriety.

The rapper from Atlanta who recorded her said he is not sorry or concerned with the actress well-being while attempting to push a narrative of race and denouncing her battle with bipolar disorder. His words were…

Y’all n****s would not be mad if I posted a white girl,” he said in an Instagram video by way of Straight From The A. “If I would have ran into muthaf***king Hillary Duff/ Lizzy McGuire and she was asking for crack and [was] sucking d**k at the gas station for money for crack, I would have posted her, too.”

Just because she was a black actress from back in the day, who we already all know from Redan. She been on the block for years. We been knew this b***h. She been doing dumb sh*t. Went in the industry got geek up f**ked all in the streets, n***as sent her back to Atlanta and she got geeked up some more. This ain’t no mental disorder this b***h is just high as f**k.”

Atlanta rapper says he’s not sorry

Wow!! Atl rapper went off! He talked some smack but not to long afterwards he apologized about it!!

Maia Campbell also responds back to LL Cool J. She said she doesn’t need any help, just a benefit concert for mental health.

What sense did it make to record her like that anyways? What did recording her prove? Maia Campbell is a mother, she has a daughter!

LL Cool J tried reaching out to her, and a few days later Maia responds in a video.

Maia Campbell rejects LL Cool J’s help

She’s saying she don’t need the help but she really does! Those pictures don’t even look like her.

It’s really true that you can’t help a person who doesn’t want to help themselves! You can’t help a person that doesn’t want to be helped.

It’s so hurtful, and I don’t even know her personally. All I know is Maia Campbell has had it hard! A beautiful woman, a beautiful actress, and all people are worried about is backlash, and putting you out here like you’re trash!

Even though it’s been many years ago, I hope that Maia Campbell is okay. I pray that she does decide to get the help that she needs especially for her illness. Her daughter is in my prayers also, I know it’s hard for her as well, she needs her mother. I’m not sure who’s her guardian, but I pray that she’s okay and in a safe place. I pray that God wraps his arms around her and let her know that everything will be okay, and to keep praying for her mother, and praying that she gets the help that she needs, because without it, her illness will proceed.

Also, in 2016 we were all excitedly provided with an update on Maia’s progress. It seemed as if her life was back on track as she joined the season two cast of From The Bottom Up. Maia was featured on the Centric TV reality series to highlight her fight to regain control of her life and to mend fences with her estranged daughter. On the show it, it was clear that Maia was indenial of her struggles and at one point she was missing.

In effort to locate her, actress Chrystale Wilson contacted Maia’s Godmother to find out if she was okay. Maia’s Godmother revealed that she was in fact in a safe place, but she still was experiencing problems. One of the reasons why Maia was still experiencing some challenges, according to her Godmother, was her inability to admit that she needed help.

New Blog Name New Blog Change… Face Depression

You are not alone. Together we can prove all the stigma around mental illnesses wrong!!!

Good afternoon everyone!! I hope you all are having a great and blessed day. I hope you all enjoyed your Labor Day. My day is going good so far I can’t complain. My son Jayden keeps me going even when I feel I don’t have the energy. School is back in session for the kids, and man did the summer go by quick huh?! Jayden goes to a better school that is close to his dad’s house, because the schools located by me are horrible. Nowadays the teachers just doesn’t care to actually teach like they use too. So as I was saying, he goes to a better school by his daddy and he is doing so much better there! Yay!! I actually love the school and before switching my son Jayden, I had already heard so many good things about the school. So I decided to give the schools a try. He went from one school to the other, and he went from doing not so good to doing great! I saw the difference from the change, and it’s awesome! I’m so proud, I’m one proud mother of one. He comes by me on the weekend and this weekend it was a holiday right behind it, Labor Day which was Monday and he also had Tuesday off. He went back to school Wednesday, he’s not far from me at all and even though I see him everyday, I still always miss him when he is gone. But, his education comes first, and the first school he was attending was horrible and they had so many complaints. So, I had to do what was best for him, and his education.

My son Jayden and I. He’s my pride and my joy.

My son’s father and I do whatever it takes to make sure our son is okay, and taken care of. From spending time with him and showing him what love really is, to showing him how important an education is, and that you can’t make it without it. Showing him life is what you make of it, so enjoy it. Teaching him right from wrong, because doing wrong gets you nowhere in life.

That’ll be another discussion, and another post that I will talk about. Upholding your kids when they do wrong.
