Mental Health • Depression Is Happiness | Young & Twenty


Depression changes more than who you are. It changes the people around you.

Your supportive family panics.

They ask you to comfort their racing minds. They want to hear you say you’re fine and everything’s back to normal – even if they know it’s not.

Your friends don’t know you anymore.

They sigh when you pass on a night of drinking and like everyone else, they just want to pat you on the back and tell you it will blow over.

Your job is slipping from your control.

You can’t devote your hectic mind to 8 hours of concentration a day.

The Happiest Day of My Life Sharing my laughter and my life By Michael T. Smith


‘Congratulations’ my interest was held throughout. Thank you

Madamsabi's Blog

It started innocently.

Many years ago, I worked in an office with large windows that looked out over a busy overpass. I stood by one of those windows one day, when a woman in a passing car looked up and made eye contact with me—naturally, I waved.

A chuckle escaped my lips as she turned and tried to identify me. It was the beginning of a year of window antics. When things were slow, I stood in the window and waved at the passengers who looked up. Their strange looks made me laugh, and the stress of work was washed away.
My co-workers took an interest. They stood back out of view and watched the reactions I received with amusement.

Late afternoon was the best time. Rush-hour traffic filled the overpass with cars and transit buses, and provided a wealth of waving opportunities for my end-of-day routine. It didn’t take…

Today We Pray For The Victims of Domestic Abuse


Endless Light and Love

My Dear Friends,

Domestic abuse, most often brushed under the carpet, locked behind the doors of the home, never spoken about, hidden behind shaking smiles in the hope that one day it will be ok and everything will go back to the time before the abuse started to happen!….

Unfortunately, in most cases, the abuse never stops, in most cases the abuse escalates to even higher levels, often the abuse moves over from one family member to others and sometimes even continues across generations, when the abused become the abuser !

Today, I pray for all the victims of abuse. Abuse can come in many forms, physical abuse, mental abuse, sexual abuse, confinement abuse etc.

No one, No one deserves to be abused!

No one should be treated without respect!

No one should have to live in fear!

No one……No one.

If you are in a situation of abuse, then…

30,000 share this doctor’s letter online after Downing Street police refused to give it to David Cameron


Original post from Metro

‘…………….By 

David Cameron and his wife Samantha

A doctor recently tried to give a letter to David Cameron criticising his 7-day NHS plans, but the police at Downing Street refused to pass her correspondence on.

However Janis Burns’ letter has now had a greater impact than she could have ever imagined, having been read and shared thousands of times after she posted it online.

In her witty letter Janis, 34, takes shots at the PM for his ‘inflation busting pay rise’, and informs him of the gruelling hours she is forced to work, mocking the belief that the NHS isn’t a 24-hour service.

Check out Janis’ full letter below:

<div id=”fb-root”></div><script>(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = “//connect.facebook.net/en_GB/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3″; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, ‘script’, ‘facebook-jssdk’));</script><div class=”fb-post” data-href=”https://www.facebook.com/janis.burns/posts/10155800892455263&#8243; data-width=”500″><div class=”fb-xfbml-parse-ignore”><blockquote cite=”https://www.facebook.com/janis.burns/posts/10155800892455263″><p>Dear Mr Cameron, On Wednesday morning this week I returned to work at 0800. I worked the weekend in Intensive Care as…</p>Posted by <a href=”#” role=”button”>Janis Burns</a> on&nbsp;<a href=”https://www.facebook.com/janis.burns/posts/10155800892455263″>Saturday, July 18, 2015</a></blockquote></div></div>

Whether it’s the low levels of pay (Janis claims some doctors make less than a Pret a Manger manager), or the anti-social hours, Janis has given David Cameron and health secretary Jeremy Hunt a lot to think about.

Her letter comes as NHS staff have been flooding Twitter with images and anecdotes explaining just how hard their job is, using the hashtag #ImInWorkJeremy.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”>Day 6 of 12. Saturday morning. <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/ImInWorkJeremy?src=hash”>#ImInWorkJeremy</a&gt; Two of my consultants are as well.
