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
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. That is the first best step to fighting back and wanting to regain, and reclaim your life back, and also on the road to recovery.
There’s many different conditions that are recognized as mental illnesses. Down below are the more common types… welcome to a way to understanding mental illnesses.
What is Mental Illness? Mental illnesses are conditions that affects a person’s thinking, mood, feeling, behavior, such as depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or schizophrenia. Such conditions may be occasional or long-term and long-lasting (chronic) and affect someone’s ability to relate to others and function each day.
It is when someone lacks the ability to manage day to day tasks and/or control their behavior so that basic physical and emotional needs are threatened or unmet.
What is Mental Health? Mental health includes our emotional, our social well being, and psychological. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and to make healthy choices. Your mental health is important at every stage of life from childhood and adolescence through adulthood.
Even though the terms are regularly used interchangeably, poor mental health and mental illness are not the same things. A person can experience very poor mental health and even be diagnosed with a mental illness. Otherwise, a person diagnosed with a mental illness can experience periods of physical, mental well-being, and social well-being.
Why is mental health very important for overall health?
Physical and mental health are both equally important elements of overall health. Mental illness such as depression, increases the risk for many types of physical health problems, particularly long-lasting conditions like stroke, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes. Equivalently, the presence of chronic conditions can most definitely increase the risk for mental illness.
Can your mental health change?
Yes, your mental health can change overtime yes… most definitely. It’s important to remember that a person’s mental health can in fact change over time, depending on many factors. When the commands placed on a person exceed their resources and their coping abilities, their mental health could be a testimony. It could be impacted.
If you have a mental health condition, you’re not alone. 1 in 5 U.S. adults experiences some form of mental illness in any given year. Across America, 1 in 25 adults is living with a serious mental health condition such as schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, or long-term recurring major depression.
Just as with other serious illnesses, mental illness is not your fault or that of that of the people around you, but the widespread of misunderstandings about mental illness still remains. Sadly. Many people don’t seek treatment or remain unaware that they’re symptoms could be connected to a mental health condition. Some people expect a person with a serious mental illness to look visibly different from others, and they might tell someone who does not “look ill” to “get over it” through willpower. These misconceptions add to the challenges of living with a mental health condition.
Every year people overcome the challenges of mental illness to do things that they enjoy doing. Through developing and following a treatment plan, you can suddenly reduce many of your symptoms. People with mental health conditions, can and actually do pursue higher education, succeed in their careers, and have relationships and friends. Mental illness can slow us down sometimes, but we don’t have to let it stop us right?!
I know you all have been waiting on this post…. and guess what?! It’s coming up in just a few minutes. Hang tight.
I did a few changes to the title, but that’s it. I changed it to “A Guide To Understanding Mental Illnesses” instead. I think that’s much better for the title.
So… your (the) wait is just about over. I’m just finishing up, and adding a few more very IMPORTANT and the more INFORMATIVE things about mental illnesses to my post. Than…. I’ll proofread it and click publish after I’m finished.
A person can have everything they could ever imagine. Their life is so perfect, and you never hear anything negative about them. They could be living in a 3 story house, beautiful kids, and a wife/husband.
That husband could be facing unexplainable emotions and feelings. He’s probably ashamed because he’s the man of the house, and men are suppose to be strong. Right?!
A person could be the happiest wife, prettiest wife….
With a big paying job… and on the inside, when that person is by themselves…
Guess what?! At night that person could be struggling with depression, and/or anxiety attacks. That person might be fighting for their life on the inside.
When that person is by themself, and home alone… they probably just sit crying inside. You never know what a person is going through. You never know what type of demons a person could be fighting on a daily basis. You don’t know what type of emotions or/and feelings this person face everyday. They feel like they’re dying on the inside. Thoughts and emotions rushing through your mind, feeling hopeless, feeling like nothing is even worth it. You’re just so unhappy. But you pretend well because you don’t know who to trust… or who to tell.
Losing hope from major depression can make life very difficult. It can make every moment, every part, of life feel impossible.
No matter what your situation is, don’t lose hope and don’t lose focus. The belief that your life can and will get better is a essential part of recovery from major depression. Happily, hope a renewable resource.
Everyday won’t be a good day, some days are worse than others, but hope guides us through the darkest times. Without it, we stay mired in despair. Hope allows us to believe that change is very possible— that even in the midst of that relapse, you’ll find yourself again. Hope is what gives us the strength to right back up and try again.
What is hope exactly, and how to sustain it?
It’s a character trait that helps us thrive. The desire to attain a certain end and the belief it is very much possible to attain it.
Hope relies on what psychologists call “agency”— the certainty that you can deploy control over your actions and your environment.
Optimism also plays a big role— the confidence that things will somehow work out for the better. “Hope” is a combination of lessening suffering and psychic pain and building more positive assumptions for the future.
