    I am so excited about this. It truly takes courage to be completely honest with how you are feeling. It takes even more courage for your loved ones to educate themselves with no judgement.Find your safe people that will love you unconditionally and know that it is okay to have a mental illness as long as you learn everything you need to learn to be in touch with your feelings. No matter how dark things can get at times remember……never give up and the light will eventually come shinning through.:)

    Worrying and where does it exactly get you????????

    We worry so much and most of the worrying that we do “most of the time” it’s about something we have no control over or the power to change the situation. Do we do it because it is much easier than confronting what is really going on….are we afraid of the outcome of the pain from the outcome? Sometimes we do so much to our bodies by what we do to our minds with out realizing it that we end up barely floating, just end up on the verge of drowning. Ever ask yourself how are things going to change? Well first you have to want that change. Sometimes that change may come from a lot of help and reaching out to the right people so you can learn to take the right actions and take things one day at a time. We can NOT expect anyone who has never suffered from mental illness or had a loved one who never experienced a mental illness to understand and that alone is one of the toughest lessons in life that I have had to encounter. Learning to take one step at a time even if it is a baby step it is still one more step than you did yesterday:-)………..
