    Anxiety and Insomnia After The Time Change #Anxiety #AnxietyAttack #Insomnia

    Hi everyone! I haven’t posted in a long time. I’m really struggling with insomnia, anxiety and tremors. It started a couple weeks ago after we changed the time back an hour. Any advice?

    I’m really happy with the picture I’ve included. It my 988 Mental Health Crisis Lifeline shirt. #988 #MentalHealth

    The Stigma of Race Must Change

    The Stigma Of Mental Illness Must Change

    Here is my adapted commentary to Mighty Contributor, J. Pierre.

    I am not black, but I have been there. I used to think prayer, church and reading the Bible would be enough to get through major depressive disorder, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts, but it wasn’t.

    In the Black community. Strength and prayer have always been the go-to’s instead of mental health service., You can see this is even evident in packed churches across our country

    Prayer and Christianity do not cure mental illness. (alone)

    Black families for generation after generation have said “therapy is just for white people,”

    Black people think mental health issues don’t even exist and can simply be prayed away over time.

    Get rid of the stigma for ALL MEN.

    You should seek out professional help for you and your loved ones. Seek available resources as soon as possible, including the new hotline, #988 , or call your doctor. #988 #mentalheathmatters
