About Me

Whatever.

Journal Archives

I'm going to another country for the first time.

To learn Spanish! I've noticed that I know a lot already. No means no? Got that down pretty fast.

She died today on Memorial day, of all days.

My husband has known her for 39 years, so you could say she was a sister.

Usually in tragedies such as this, I'd turn to her as someone I can message online to work my feelings out. I can't really do that right now. She had her problems, but it gave her enough wisdom to be realistic about everything and had a sharp mind that helped me reflect on some things.

I knew her longer than her brother, my husbands best friend that passed away in 2009. Her mother has outlived both of them and I hope her mother finds some peace of mind somehow.

I'm not particularly good at tributes, so I looked back at what I wrote about her. When my college class required us to interview someone, I interviewed her. She really liked how I portrayed her, as it was a short biography of her life. But I decided posting any of that here would be too personal. Although she was never ashamed to tell her full story as a survivor of so many things, it reflects her as a person still alive with hopes of a better future with her new husband for years to come. Something that is not possible anymore.

Stigmatization of the mentally ill.

How do you attack it?

That question can be both seen as a question of how you do it here or elsewhere and a question of what can we do about it?

So, more mentally ill = violent psychopath threads in GD.

Come and rant here. I know I need a thread like this, but since no one has made one yet, here it is.

Friendly reminder to those interested in talking about mental health.

There's a forum that has not been taken advantage of: Mental Health Information group. It's not a safe haven like the mental health support group, it's a place to argue and inform. Questions can be answered better in a place where people know what they're talking about.
