Writing sometimes is a big and scary thing.

Expressing oneself,

putting yourself out there

for criticism

where everyone can see you and you are all exposed.

Your heart and soul are laid bare

as you give your all hoping for approval.

For that slim chance that they understand

your feelings, your thoughts

and are touched.

As we ourselves have been touched

at one point in our lives.

Depression is an illness, but it is treatable and there are plenty of sites available to get good information about it.  One such website is Healthyplace.com.   The site covers many types of depressions (including but not limited to A-typical, Dysthymia, PMDD, Postpartum, and Seasonal Affective Disorder) and even offers quizzes to see how you are doing.  The site includes information on how millions of people suffer from depression to remind everyone that suffers that they are not alone.

“Depression Information

Millions of Americans suffer from depression. The Centers for Disease Control report 1 in 10 adults, 18 and over, are depressed at any given time and people age 45-64, women, minorities, those unemployed, and people who were previously married are most likely to meet the criteria of major depression. Keep in mind, the symptoms of depression can be experienced at any stage of life, by anyone.

Depression is very serious and if left untreated can lead to deteriorating health and even suicide. There is hope, however. Depression is treatable.

We want to help you learn as much as you can about depression and to offer you depression support in your recovery. We have trusted, in-depth information on the different types of depression, depression warning signs and the different kinds of depression treatments. And, if you or a loved one need it, we have suicide hotline numbers and comprehensive suicide information.

The information the site continues to go into is varied and extensive.  They talk about Depression as it effects Women, Men, Children and Teens, talk about various treatments for depression, even how depression ties into anxiety.  I found this site to be highly informative. Something that could be a great help to many.   I would recommend it to people who are looking for answers to sometimes difficult, and often times puzzling, questions.

Not sure people realize

an extra hour sleep may be grand thing
but confuses the medication times
making the body upset


 

I didn’t know at first, but Ebates lets you get money back when you buy music/movies at iTunes.  That was awesome to find out.  I knew other shops and stuff, but the iTunes one was huge for me as it helps me relax when I hurt too much to do anything else.  It’s nice to have when you are shopping and trying to save money when dealing with medication prices.  It’s a good way to save money.

Mini Poem: Fears in a Crowd

walking outside they brushes into me
i wince trying not to yelp in pain
an accident that never mattered before
now is a painful experience

stars light up the sky at night
showing us the way through darkness
throughout centuries they’ve guided
but still I cannot move

nerve pain traps me 
snaring me in place
i cannot go for help
or manage to help myself

19 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted

19 Struggles Of Having An Outgoing Personality But Actually Being Introverted.

A relative of mine had this article on their social media and I, thankfully, took the time to read it.  I really enjoyed Christian Marcus Lyons’ choice of topic and was glad that they took the time to cover what it was about and have been glad that people have been responsive to this as an actual possibility because it is true.

The article started by explaining how there are not just simply two kinds of people in the world: Introverted and extroverted.  There are also people who fall along the spectrum between the two who may behave one way, but act the other at times.  I happen to be one of those people who acts very extroverted at times, but who really is introverted.

For me, at least, I think  a lot of it is how I deal with my anxiety issues.  I have noticed the more anxious I get the more I tend to ‘perform’ or tend to be ‘larger than life’ and out going.   It’s when I feel ‘on’.  I truthfully find it to be exhausting.

As the article continued there was a link to another article.  The link went to another webpage, but the article was not clearly visible.  [Maybe it was just me and my Fibro Fog, but I didn’t see it.  (I did enjoy what I found on the other webpage though so that was a plus).]

The list had 19 examples, though there are surely more, of how you can be extroverted and then introverted at the same time.  Or how once you have been extroverted you then need to recover from it by being introverted.  These I felt were important because it explains how you might be able to act like the life of the party or act okay when you are out, but then need to shut yourself away for a time.  I liked what he had there.  The only thing I would have changed was at the end he didn’t bring it back together to close it.  He just ended it at the end of the list.  I would have tied it in.

Over all, I found that Lyons’ article was well worth it.  The detractions were easily overlooked when compared to the information that was supplied.  He did an excellent job and I would recommend it to others.  Enjoy!

mini poem: mental torture

watching people out living life
wanting to join them in enjoying it
trapped by my illnesses unable to go
stuck mostly as an observer inside
