Is your Mental Health Story A Book or a Brochure

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Book lovers – LOVE a good read.

Every book lover loves a good book.  While they may fascinate themselves on science fiction or have a good cry over a sad love story, the end result of reading is not pure entertainment.  For the most part, there is some type of moral standing or lesson to be learned that every good book has to teach. When it comes to self-help books, the emphasis is on helping oneself to improve your situation.

A popular trend among every facet, any genre of health, are the books written by people suffering the ailment.  Within the mental-health community there are thousands, yes thousands of books available about people living with bipolar disorder, depression, schizophrenia, borderline personality disorder…You get the point.  Not every story is the same, but most books stumble into the pitfall over-sensationalizing and romanticizing the trauma of mental disorders and the many symptoms. Not every story should be a book. Some should just be brochures.

Life Bipolar FREE: DREAD all’bout ME… My drugs I used both legal and illicit! My wild days of self-indulgence and about MY cat, MY dog, MY fish…Read about who I slept with & what I slept with!  Read ‘bout what I ate and why I ate it. The medications I took and the meds I stopped taking and the hospital psych-wards that have the best food! You’ll love to read about all my spending sprees and about what I bought and even more CRAZY antics… I even have a paragraph that might help someone… YES, READ MY LIFE story with bipolar disorder since I was diagnosed last WEEK! On sale, ONLY $50.00.Caption: Is your Mental Health Story a book or a brochure

One common pitfall that I keep reading is the glorifying of illicit drugs and alcohol use during a manic or depressive state.  Instead of using the experience to help others avoid such destructive behavior, some almost seem to encourage it as a rite of passage for mental illness recovery.  …


Why Can’t I Bounce Out Of The Winter Blues?

Facebook Friend Suggested It and Chato Stewart Drew It -

For this Sunday Silly, I asked my Facebook friends to give me 3 concepts for our Sunday silly cartoon based on the three following ideas:

1. How you feel right now: Dorothy suggested –  Sad ( *Seasonal affective disorder)

2. What bugs you right now: Tracy L of Emotional CPR suggested  “sick of waking up to 30 degree weather”

3. Your favorite cartoon character. Kelly C and Kathy B both suggest “Winnie The Pooh Characters”

Today’s Sunday Silly is a mix of suggestions but i think they all worked well together!

I Know When I’m going to Die…

Cause My Birth Certificate has an expiration date on it!

The title and subtitle of this post is actually one of my favorite jokes from comedian Steven Wright.  But could you imagine if we had expiration dates? Maybe we should have an expiration date. Think about it, we do spoil if we don’t take care of ourselves.  The older we get the weaker we become as if we we’re a medication losing its strength.

Well, if you want to be literal…I guess the reality is we all have expiration dates. We might not know when they are per se.

The cartoon below is part of the Over-Medicated series.  A while back when I adjusted my medications, I started to have these bizarre, nightmarish and freaky dreams. This is odd because since the only type sleep I get is medicated slumber and normally, I don’t dream at all.  But ever since I adjusted some medication, I get these strange/bizarre dreams.

For example last night, I should say, early this morning…I dreamt I was a Wood Carver and all of a sudden the posh area I worked at was overrun by millions of ravenous, bloodthirsty…squirrels.

What do you think that means?
