    Warriors fighting battles you can not see need to be respected based on what they say, not how things may appear!

    Many of us fight invisible battles every day but yet we look like we have got it all together. When someone says they are depressed don't assume they're just feeling a little down that day and not respect that what they say is real, challenging, and can be deeply painful emotionally. When someone says they have chronic pain you can not see, and you've never been there, don't think they are complaining and should just deal with it or judge when they can not do things that they “appear” completely capable of doing. When someone says they are suffering from a migraine don't minimize it as it's”just” a headache or nothing major. Many of us are carrying a lot of weight on our shoulders and just hide it well....please appreciate our ability to be present and function as “normal” people do. Please love, support and honor others if they mention battles they face you can not see...the weight they carry on their shoulders can be far heavier than what it appears!

    (Feel free to share this with friends or family in your life who you feel need to hear it, they probably do)

    Two months since psych admission

    I was shocked today to realise it’s been just two months since I was admitted to a psychiatric hospital following a suicide attempt. Today it seems like a lifetime away. The circumstances that lead me to take such a drastic step are largely unchanged. Next year I am still facing huge challenges. What is different is my outlook, thoughts and honesty.

    I am happy I am still alive.
