The Reason I Blog

God's Whispers of Truth

In the beginning of April 2018, I made the decision to start a blog, so my friends and family would better understand what I was going through physically and so I could gain their support from that understanding and in turn feel less unsupported.

Well, it didn’t work like I thought it would. For starters, I couldn’t get most of them to read my blog or sign up to receive emails!! The response I felt was a bit lack luster and lame.

Now what? Of course my dear parents signed up to receive emails and my best friend Michelle but I already felt supported, loved, and understood by them anyways…..just not everyone else!

One day my mama told me that my blog greatly encouraged her. She went on to say she actually loved my blog and expectantly looked forward to my posts. She began encouraging me to write, write…

Stigma and Discrimination on Mental Health

There’s a similar lack of understanding in this area + judging without knowing the circumstances
http://www.fromdarknesstothelight.wordpress.com
All the best, Harshita

Harshita, My Scribbled Words

Stigma is when someone views you in a negative way because you have a distinguishing characteristic or personal trait that’s thought to be, or actually is, a disadvantage (a negative stereotype). Unfortunately, negative attitudes and beliefs toward people who have a mental health condition are common.

Stigma is a major cause of discrimination and exclusion: it affects people‘s self-esteem, helps disrupt their family relationships and limits their ability to socialize and obtain housing and jobs. It hampers the prevention of mental health disorders, the promotion of mental well-being and the provision of effective treatment and care. It also contributes to the abuse of human rights

Stigma can lead to discrimination. Discrimination may be obvious and direct, such as someone making a negative remark about your mental illness or your treatment. Or it may be unintentional or subtle, such as someone avoiding you because the person assumes you could be unstable…

The Invisible Rain Cloud

Unstoppable María

As much as I write about my brain injury, I sometimes feel like I can’t really explain exactly what it’s like. Everything I read says different things about what it feels like but that’s not always what I feel. I don’t know if others feel the same way but as much as I try to share and be open about it there are still some dark spots I’d rather not share.

What everybody sees is the outside, not the darker things inside, and sometimes it’s better to not share those parts.  Then when you read things it feels like you’re going through something completely different than everybody else with the same diagnosis.

Until you hear something that sounds familiar. I found that in The Invisible Rain Cloud, a story about what it’s like to live with a Traumatic Brain Injury. It was like reading my mind, it’s a video truly…
