Blog For Mental Health 2014 — 9 Comments

  1. I’m glad you are pursuing informed treatment options. I was not so lucky back in the day and had to stumble about blindly without much support.

    • Thanks. 🙂 And I feel that a lot of people, especially Stateside, do continue to be in that boat. I know that a lot of people I talk to still feel stigma because people are so quick to blame the mentally ill for any shootings that happen, rather that admitting that caring for folks has healthier outcomes for all. Had I not moved, I’m not sure I would have ever been able to find out, or would have ever been in a place mentally to find out. This makes me really really sad, ’cause I’ve seen how much better my life is with knowing and treatment. That also, admittedly, comes with a huge dose of luck of responding well to meds — this is something I’ll own up to I don’t know that that will always be the case, but at least it’s giving me some indeterminate period of time of stability to work on myself and enjoy life! 🙂

  2. Best wishes for this year and I hope you have a healthy, comfortable-as-possible pregnancy! I did well for the most part when I had to go off my medication for my last pregnancy. During the 2nd trimester I had a depressive episode severe enough to justify a low dose of Zoloft, but other than that I did really well mood-wise. The end result: a healthy baby boy 🙂

    • Thanks! So far, so good mood-wise. What’s getting me instead is lots of tiny physical health problems like insomnia, colds, stomach bugs, and I think I can feel a sore throat coming on. *chuckles* I’ll probably write about that in the next day or two.

  3. I agree with all your sentiments and am doing what I can by working as a Certified Peer Supporter for people with mental health issues. The more people who stand out and cast a compassionate shadow about living with mental illness the faster acceptance will spread. Thank you for doing what you do.
