“I’m Not Resisting” The 3 Words said to Police During a Mental Health Crisis
To stay alive during a mental heath crisis, when the police arrive, do the following. Drop anything in your hands, stretch out your arms with your hands open and palms facing the officer. Say it again loud “I’m Not Resisting”, and repeat it a few times..not too many because then, they might think your making “threats and ‘furtive movements’.”  Giving the officer just-cause to “Believe your armed with a firearm, knife or something.”  That’s when you can start writing your epitaph. #I’mNOTresisting

Remember to say, “I’m Not Resisting”, Respect the office, don’t run, don’t be belligerent, don’t be an ass hole, don’t be ignorant, don’t do anything that would give them any good reason to put the hand on that gun.  Statistics show, when a police officer pulls a gun on a mentally ill person, mortality rate of that mentally ill person doubles.  (Note the only reason why police officer should pull the gun of the holster is if they are, or the public is in a direct threat of injury or violent attack- extrapolated/summarized from the police book: it’s not a direct quote.)
To STOP Officer From Shootings Say “I’m Not Resisting.”
Let me share from my research over the last week. I’ve googled and read and watched many very sad videos that I will not share…their triggers, horrific, and outright blatantly scary. You would think watching, reading them that it would happen only in a Third World country.  But it’s in our backyards, in our own homes…in the USA.

Such as in May of this past year, a man in crisis was crying for help. Running in a circle in his courtyard, in front of his home having delusions, running in a circle four hours crying for help, “call the police”, “call the police” – …

Eleven days into We Go Health’s National Health Blog Post Month blog party and we get to blog about anatomy!  Well, in this case changing the name of our anatomy.  I thought about it for a few days before I drew this cartoon.  Most of my “new Anatomy” terms were too harsh and blunt but here are the “G” rated version and I think you may get a giggle out of one of the new terms.

Weirdest thing about Bipolar is? #NHBPM

Day 2 – Friday, Nov. 2 – “Write about the weirdest thing about your >>Bipolar<< health”.

Weirdest thing about bipolar - National Health Blog Post Month

Question:  Weirdest thing about bipolar is:Caption: I can only fly when I’m happy or Off meds

I’m blogging with WE Go health’s National Health Blog Post Month this month with a goal to write and post each day of November. I tried to do it last year, but I could not keep up.  This year I’m going to try and draw a cartoon for the daily suggestions/prompts.

This idea of being able to fly when you’re drugged- up does not hold true.  It’s when I’m off my meds that I soar like an eagle!
