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

So very thankful for God letting me live to see another birthday. It’s a pretty day outside, I don’t plan on doing much, just going to snuggle up with my baby boy and watch some movies. You can’t do to much without transportation/funds. But I’m still very thankful… thankful for being a live to see another birthday.
Good afternoon everyone! It’s such a cool day today here in Louisiana. This weather is so confusing. One minute it’s cold and the next it’s hot, or storming raining outside. Lol. That’s why a lot of people here get sick quick, because of our confused weather here. It could be 30 degrees outside one day, and the very next day it’ll be so hot such as 80 degrees, crazy weather huh?
Speaking of sick… my son just recently got diagnosed with the mild flu… glad we caught it in time before it actually turned to the flu. The flu is the last thing he needs or me, the flu makes an adult feel horrible, lots of pain, and feel yucky, so you know how it’ll make a child feel.
But… I know it’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted, but for some reason my pressure was 175/110 for a few days, than it dropped to 130/110. Which is still high. This is the first time I have had any problem with my pressure being high, or just pressure problems period.
It was high for about 2 days. I thought laying down and relaxing would help it go down. So, on the 3rd day, with almost everyone scaring me saying, “omg that’s to high you could catch a seizure,” or “Get to your doctor now!” I called my doctors office.
When I called my doctors office and told them my pressure was 175/110 the nurse told me that’s entirely to high, she put me on hold to go check with my doctor and he also said that’s to high, and to come to the office now! After that…. omg they had me terrified! Like I said I’ve never had any problems with my pressure, so that was very scary for me. So I went to my primary care doctor’s office, and they checked my vitals.
They checked my pressure again, (just to double check, and to make sure my machine at home was working properly), and yes it was the exact same numbers as I checked at home. My doctor asked if I’ve taken any new medications, or have I been eating plenty of salt lately, but my answer was no, and still is no. All my medications was the normal I told him, and that salt has never been my favorite, not even close to plenty.
To make a long story short… I may have to take pressure medications, and change up my diet, and also my lifestyle. Especially with trying to help everybody, and when I can’t I feel really bad. If they’re a close friend, I most definitely feel their pain in certain situations and life circumstances.
But like my doctor said… there’s nothing wrong with being a good person/friend but if it’s not healthy for me, my mental health, than sometimes you have to back off… take time for yourself and take care of yourself. Especially your physical and mental health. They’re most important.
Don’t ever forget that…
Okay so down below is my next post coming up. Don’t miss out. I wouldn’t miss out if I were you. “The Brain And Mental Illness” stay tuned for sure.
Always remember you are not alone and don’t give up and keep pushing…. we got this fight! We gonna beat this and we can beat this!
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.
You’re not to blame for your mental illness, neither are you to blame, for the thoughts and feelings that comes right along with it. It’s not your fault, it’s a medical result. Something you don’t want but truly and honestly, you gets no choice… it’s remorseless. It also affects your behavior, and concentration, making it difficult to do the simplest things.
When it comes to mental illness… people say the darnedest things!! With no kind of understanding.
Mental illness is sometimes debilitating, embarrassing, and really really misunderstood. Many people just don’t understand. What’s the most insensitive thing someone’s said to you about your mental illness??
I’ve heard things like “I had depression and I got over mine.” Really?! Yes! How harsh is that right? I’ve also heard, “it’s time for you to grow up now,” or “maybe you need a hobby,” wow right? I’m serious. I’m telling you the truth. It’s devastating. That was horrible to say to someone with a mental illness.
But no matter what, don’t let such ignorance get to you. People need to think before speaking because, you never know what someone is going through. Sometimes you don’t have to say nothing. Your presence could be enough. Imagine a friend comes to see you in the hospital, don’t know why but, when you tell him/her they reply, “At least it’s not cancer,” enough for you to slap them (lol) just kidding, just a little humor…. but yeah it makes you angry because mental illness is just as serious as other physical illnesses. You can to die from mental illness just like you can die from a physical condition.
Everyone is “fighting a battle you know nothing about.” So try to be kind… you won’t die from being kind. You can’t judge a book by it’s cover is indeed a very true saying.
I am one of the 1 in 5 who struggles with mental health. I have, in fact, been plagued by mental health problems since my early teenage years, it got worse up into adulthood. I am now 32 years old. In the beginning, I was embarrassed about it, just to be honest. Hearing all the negative stigma and all… it took about 5 years to realize be hiding my mental illness is going right along with the stigma, it was like I was contributing to the negative stigma. I eventually got tired of the negative thoughts on mental illness. I started to be more open about it. Now, I don’t care who know. I don’t care what others say. I know I didn’t choose this. I know it’s not ‘all in my mind.’ I know I’m not ‘crazy,’ as most people say.
My aim is to make a significant contribution to eliminating mental health stigma, which sadly still prevails. There are still many many misunderstandings about mental illness. Nobody is protected or immune— rich, poor, young, old.
Even if you do not have a history of depression, without warning, it can strike upon either the slightest or most significant change in life circumstance. We cannot immune ourselves from its reach. The most frightening reality is that we are all quite possibly one-life changing moment from being wrapped in depression’s tentacles. Losing a child, getting a divorce, the death of a loved one, any of these, all of these, can send you spiraling into a pit of a mental illness, depression. At any moment. Even people on top hit rock bottom.
Mental illness does not discriminate… it can happen, it can affect anyone regardless of any age and any gender. It doesn’t matter. It affects you in all stages of life, from birth through adulthood. And it affects you in every aspect of your day to day living. It is an equal opportunity illness that can afflict us all at anytime.
Mental illness does not care if you are a Hollywood celebrity, like Wil Wheaton(who shared his amazingly candid story on medium about his battle). His story….
When our mental health becomes compromised, it can prevent you from coping, engaging in life, and realizing our full potential. It affects our family, productivity, and friendships, which in turn impacts our society and communities.
Just like there are many physical illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, or colitis there are too many mental illnesses. Some may experience the constant worry, fear and debilitating effects of anxiety or maybe panic attacks, while others may endure the extreme lows of depression. Many may suffer the life altering effects of an eating disorder, bipolar disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, or a trauma disorder, and others can live with schizophrenia or psychosis, just to name a few.
Just like other physical illnesses, mental illnesses are mild, but the others can be much more severe. Be it anxiety or diabetes, professional treatment is usually needed although there isn’t the perfect cure but there is hope.
Being kind to yourself actually helps you to shake back, live healthier, and to stay on the right track.
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 fulfillingyour 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 upwith harsh self–talk
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.
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 tocan 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.
