    Special Item

    OK. This is probably weird but I am giving it a try. So say you are going to a place, any place, doesn't matter, and you can't bring people or pets, so you have one item you are allowed to bring with you. What would your special item be? Have some fun with this, I hope! #Friends #Friendship #friendships #MightyTogether #MentalHealth #FamilyAndFriends #New #lonely #alone #NoOneFightsAlone #StrongerTogether #Together #SocialInteraction #social #wellness #EmotionalHealth #Health #relate #Chat #Share #post #safe #SafeSpace #Connections #Positivity #positive #Fun #Mindful #Mindfulness #Kindness #ActsOfKindness #ActOfKindness Self-esteem Self-worth #self -love #Confidence #Life #Lifestyle

    It took a while!

    Snort! I am a slow learner. Actually, my strokes come from brain bleeds - not high blood pressure per sea. Took me a week to comprehend that I had a STROKE. That was something I taught! Not something I DID!. Had two more little strokes that I hardly noticed, Then 5 years after the first one, and a BIG stroke on the other side, putting me back to square 1 with the first stroke.

    My despair was unbearable! The life I knew was gone forever!

    I have been 45 years in working local and national disasters, even becoming a Region 9 OSHA safety and health trainer for universities and colleges.

    The picture below is one that I have taught with for a long time. After EVERY disaster, we emerge "so happy to have survived".

    Then the reality of the clean-up, the starting over, the FACT that our reality is not going to be the same... creates helplessness, hopelessness, depression, despair, even thoughts of suicide!

    THEN we had 2 plus years of the Pandemic, which added isolation to that was we were forbidden to be within 4 feet of each other, not to mention be in groups of people. We have had other disasters too. In Arizona, we have been having 30ish wildfires a day, with flash flooding from the monsoons.

    I made this list to support those who are ready to move forward, to activate their resiliency with movement and doing.

    I look forward to our adventures together!#resiliency #outreach #Together

    This group is now a private- full privacy- group!

    Hi everyone! We just made this group private instead of it being a publicly seen group.
    This means all group content will only be visible to members of the group.

    Now everyone in our group can feel completely comfortable sharing about yourself and anything about your life in here, and posting your own posts in here and no worries about letting us really get to know each other so we can achieve this group’s purpose-to grow new, genuine friendships because what’s in this group is only for us to see!

    New Friends Destination For Current And Soon To Be New Friends! #Friends #MentalHealth

    Doesn’t this image and idea look like a paradise?

    Link to join us in this new adventure:

    New Friends Ages 40-55ish

    We all came on The Mighty ultimately to make new, real connections and to grow new friendships to get rid of this terrible thing called loneliness/being alone that is not good for anyone’s mental health and we all want better mental health.

    We all want to have friendships too based on the simple fact that we are humans and humans need to feel connected to other humans.

    And the twist with this group, is to all pitch in to make this a place on The Mighty where we don’t focus on our illnesses, because we are more than our illnesses, so much more. And we don’t want to forget that about ourselves. We don’t want to have our personalities get lost, all of the different, cool, unique things that make us who we are as people.

    So let’s all pitch in and start just chatting about everyday stuff like you would with any friend, about life in general, sharing things about yourself- just a couple examples -your interests, something you found funny, etc., whatever you would think that this is something you would like to share with a friend, and having some fun being social- because we all know we need to really connect and keep growing new friendships with our mental health in mind.

    One smile emoji or even one word can start a friendship. Some of the most comforting words in the universe are “me too.” “Hello.” “How is your day?”…(if you don’t have another conversation starter or reply to join in).

    New friends can change your life and your mental health for the better.
    Add in anything to get the ball rolling and grow some new friendships here.

    We can’t wait to get to know You.

    L( HIV )IVING LOUD

    L( HIV )IVING LOUD

    Today is June 5th, HIV LONG TERM SURVIVORS awareness day, and I want to share this small documentary/video that my amazing young Italian journalism student from San Jose State University, Alessio Cavalca, did with a lot of love.

    Special THANKS to Bill Hirsh, and ALRP, for all they do for our community, so they are part of this video.

    Alessio and I connected a few months ago, and he shared with me the fact that one of his cousins died of AIDS in the 80s, and his family was very close to him when that happened. He wanted to bring a little bit of hope to the newly diagnosed and also to the HIV LONG TERM SURVIVORS.

    This is also for my part, a focus on how much we need more intergenerational communication.

    I'm incredibly thankful to Alessio, as I am to Bill and ALRP, but I want to also send love to all the HIV-LONG TERM SURVIVORS today, who many feel invisible and not acknowledged.

    We are part of the first generations growing older with HIV, and all we want is to grow older with dignity.

    I am myself a 37 years HIV LONG TERM SURVIVOR, living with chronic pain, but somehow, I think I am lucky to be LIVING LOUD.

    MARIPOSA

    En mi pais, Mexico, cuando iba creciendo, nunca escuche una palabra bonita para quien soy como persona gay. Escuchaba por aqui y por alla, de manera denigrante: PUTO, MARICA, MARICON, batea con la mano izquierda, le hace agua la canoa, quizas la palabra MARIPOSA, es la unica hermosa palabra, pero creeme, no lo decian de una manera de honrar, sino de insultar. SI, soy una MARIPOSA, que seguira volando, y que es mucho mas fuerte de lo que muchos pensaron y pensaran, como la mariposa MONARCA, que vuela distancias grandisimas para completar su jornada. En este mes de JUNIO, mandandole mucho carino a todas/todes/todos los que estan todavia en un capullo, escondidos por seguridad, y a todas/todes/todos los que vuelan abiertamente con las alas totalmente extendidas, con brillantes colores, como una hermosa mariposa. Soy, GAY, y asi mismo, un sobreviente del VIH/SIDA por 37 anos. GRACIAS A todos/todas/todes por su apoyo siempre, y a los que me han bulleado, ojala que encuentren su paz y su realidad completa sin seguir atacando a otras/es/os. SUSPIRANDO!!! cada vez que mueves tuas alas, creas un arcoiris. #MARIPOSA #Gay #juntes #Together #VIH #hivlongtermsurvivors #supervhivents #sobrevivientes #saludmental
