Mental Health Month: Update #2

If this was a full-time position, I’d be fired by now. I am struggling cognitively in a way that I haven’t in a few years. Writing is difficult. The post on Substance Use will be tomorrow evening after I get off work, granted my… Continue Reading “Mental Health Month: Update #2”

What Does Stability Look Like For You?

For some of us this simply means having three meals a day, our medication, an income (social security included) and a permanent roof over our head. For others that means a more than comfortable income, a full-time job, a family, and spare time to… Continue Reading “What Does Stability Look Like For You?”

February’s Scheduled Mental Breakdown

I like that I’ve already failed in keeping up with my scheduled posts. If I’m actually consistent with a goal I set, someone call 911 because my identity has been stolen. This will be a short post and not research based. I’ll try and… Continue Reading “February’s Scheduled Mental Breakdown”

Tomorrow we will discuss what happens when we get so stuck in our mental health experiences that they become our lives. Sometimes this even leads to forgetting we have a life, or forgetting we have true potential to live the life we’ve always wanted.… Continue Reading “Update Post”

How To Support A Loved One’s Mental Health Journey

Chances are, if your loved one is struggling, you’re overwhelmed, they’re overwhelmed, and you all just want time to stop so you can breathe. Unfortunately, we experience time in a linear fashion because of our physicality. Sorry. What we can do is learn, adapt,… Continue Reading “How To Support A Loved One’s Mental Health Journey”

Self-Care During the Holidays

Hey all. It’s been a couple days since I’ve written. The last post was the conclusion of our investigation into whether psychology is a science. We conceded, I think, on the view that it has scientific potential but isn’t quite there yet. I had… Continue Reading “Self-Care During the Holidays”
