The "P' Word

The word was psychopath.  Who uses the word psychopath it in everyday conversation? Apparently people often do use this word and dropping such a strong word is no big deal.
 . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 

Why should you care about a mentally ill person any way?

Aside from them being your:
mother, father, sister, brother, cousin, niece, child, friend, co-worker, or spouse... they are human.
People with depression don't start out that way.  They are made.  Made by fear, trauma, social anxiety, repercussions, violence, family drama, health and more.
If it is politically incorrect to use racist terms, sexual orientation terms, sexually exploitative, age-discriminating,
terms and many more, why is it okay to point out those of us
with mental issues?  

Please document every time you hear someone use a derogatory word about the mentally ill.  Tell some one you trust that it isn't right,and that it isn't fair.  Educate the politicians, bloggers, police, the teachers, lawyers, your friends, church members, caring people do eventually come around.

The Police


 


I would just like to say, THE POLICE proved to me today that in times of mental distress, they are the last ones on your side.









Never ever assume the police know anything about mental health, anxiety or being upset. They may be trained on traffic violations, but they seem to have no training in life saving mental health issues.
  • Being told to keep it "together" is voiceless.
  • or "It's Just for a few days" is ignorant.
  • Being called names is no big deal, is harmful.
  • Being told No one is trained in mental help at the police department is utterly crazy.

From A Wise Doctor

I normally wouldn't paste something seen on Facebook, but this one got me. This was a post from a woman I knew as a teenager, who is now a retired OB/GYN. Who knew she would be so good at knowing about Our Beast-- Depression.
 
Many people believe that a suicide attempt is a selfish act because the person simply does not care about the people left behind. I can tell you that when a person gets to that point, they truly believe that their loved ones will be much better off with them gone.
This is mental illness, not selfishness.
TRUTH: Depression is a terrible disease and it is relentless. A lot of us have been close to that edge, or dealt with family members in a crisis, and some have lost friends and loved ones. Let's look out for each other and stop sweeping mental illness under the rug.
If you'd like to help, kindly copy and paste in your status (for at least an hour) to give a moment of support to all those who have real problems, health struggles, job issues, serious worries of any kind and just need to know that someone cares.
We do care.
Please do it for all of us, as nobody is immune. Hope to see this on the walls of all my family and friends for moral support. I did it for a friend and you can too. You have to copy and paste this one, no sharing.
Note: More people suffer from depression than heart disease, we know that heart disease receives a great deal of attention, but somehow depression remains locked in a closet, out of public view...just like, Depression.

Trust Yourself




Image result for caution tape


  
Your gut feeling is there for a reason.
Lately, I feel like I should be wearing a big strip of
CAUTION TAPE around my mid-section.
There really has been a rash of people laid before me who should be pushed FAR AWAY FROM me.
Just because you are kind to people, doesn't 
mean you are stupid.


SET BOUNDARIES

Don't let the nonsense you use to put up with be the norm.  Stop letting people into your life that offer you nothing.

Don't worry about the people who continue to make bad decisions, it is their choice. 

 Rally for your mental health, don't try to figure out why other people are the way they are.

Be an artist. Creating makes you feel good.

Scamming



        LIARS and Scammers in my Life.
  • Both of the scammers knew something about me.
  • They knew something I was passionate about, and used this to ENTICE me to believe they were REAL.                                   
  • Do not trust people on the inter-net.
  • Do not write about personal information in your life too these people.
    Check out people on Google, Linked-In or Spokeo and    
    check to see if their email is listed.  One person who 
    wrote to me was on 63 different websites. 
    Look for signs of poor grammar and sentences which  
    trail off.  Never send money to the person.
