Do you obsess about things that really have no huge impact on your life?  You just can’t stop letting it preoccupy your mind!  I do, and some of the stuff fills my mind continually, for no reason, and it drives me up a wall! Sometimes I obsess over what I “believe” others are saying about me even if they’ve only just glanced my way. Instantly, my brain imputes bad motives for the glance.  That falls into my paranoid state and if I catch it in time, I usually recognize and dismiss it as a symptom of my diagnosis.

I’ve been obsessing about this FC2 LOGO contest. I can’t get the stupid thing out of my head. Yes, I want to win, but the prize is only a $50.00 gift card at Amazon. It does not balance out all the work I put into drawing it and promoting it. Gosh, you would think it was for a huge prize the way I’ve been bugging my Facebook and Twitter Friends about voting for it… SORRY about that peeps!!


UPDATE: Kmart Taking Action On Offensive T-shirts

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

KMart is Krazy 150It’s been 5 days since I posted “Kmart Stigmatizes Children With Mental Illness – Selling Offensive T-shirts.”  It was more of my own personal rant because I was shocked at the advertisement in a K-mart flyer.  In the published promotion, Juniors’ tees were being sold for $9.89 with what I felt was a stigmatizing message.  I took a picture and posted it in the blog post linked above.

On the first shirt it says, “I’M NOT CRAZY! MY IMAGINARY FRIENDS CAN PROVE IT!” And the second T-shirt said: “GONE CRAZY, BACK IN 5 Minutes.

While my Facebook friends got a little vocal (see quotes below)… My twitter peeps took it even a step further. After receiving an e-mail about my post,  Founder, President and Host of The Coffee Klatch* brought the problem right to the source!

KMart is Krazy 150Today, like every Sunday, I opened the newspaper to see what was new in the world. Then I checked out what was on sale, going through the flyers of local, brand-name stores.  Today, I was shocked at the advertisement in a K-mart flyer.

On the Family Denim Event page, dead center of the layout, was Juniors’ tees being sold for $9.89 with a message on the front so stigmatizing that I had to take a picture and post it in today’s blog post.

Stigmatic expressions toward mental illness; what I would only have expected to see online has now gone mainstream!

On the first shirt it says, “I’M NOT CRAZY! MY IMAGINARY FRIENDS CAN PROVE IT!” And the second T-shirt said: “GONE CRAZY, BACK IN 5 Minutes.

Mental Health Humor - Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals tic tac - by Chato StewartA few weeks ago, I wrote about pharmaceuticals that could be counterfeit. (“Are your SSRI’s…”SSR-NOTS”?!”) Just this week the “FDA has seen an increase of medication fakes hitting our shores.”  The meds that CNN was talking about are cancer medications, not psychotropics or common meds for Bipolar, Depression or Anxiety…see: Over-Medicated: Counterfeit Pharmaceuticals – Why YOU Should Be Worried

The FDA says a counterfeit version of the anti-cancer drug Avastin may have been purchased and used in practices in the United States.
