The sun is shining, the weight is dropping, I'm eating healthy and enjoying it. What could be better than that? Winning the lottery maybe, or not. cont'd...
I know a number of bloggers that are struggling with suicidal thoughts, or haver ecently tried. I think this is a good post to reblog for them. I hope they read it. Thank you for sharing your story, this is the only way people will start to understand thet endancies for suicide, why and what to do. If it helps even one person, right? Hopefully it will help more.
This is an updated version of a chapter in memoir The Bipolar Writer. For those who have read my blog post about suicide, you know how important this subject is in my life. I have been through so much with my suicides. I now advocate against suicide. With that said here is a chapter in my memoir.
J.E. Skye’s Thoughts on Suicide
In the darkest places of my mind, I still remember how it felt when suicide was consuming my every thought. What a dark place I must go to again, but this time it’s only to understand. Many of us are on this earth to help others deal with the same problems. I like to think this is one of those times. I want to share my thoughts on suicide. You may not like every word that I say here, this is a tough subject to write for…

Hello everyone. Is there anyone else out there that gets bored with everything, including their job? Do you just feel like you want to branch out, do more things? My mind never shuts off. cont'd...
Hello folks! Thank you for checking out the progress of my healthy eating life-style. I am pretty sure my weigh scales are broken, because I barely lost one pound. I was so sure, I lost at least three. cont'd...
I have been reading so many posts about so many wounds that need to be healed. I'm not talking about little scratches. I'm talking about whole body wounds, when every muscle in your body cannot, or will not move. You cannot get out of bed, you have no energy, you can't think straight. cont'd...
Once again, I must reblog a post from My Loud Bipolar Whispers. Medication is the biggest issue with dealing with any mental illness. Research your meds, then talk to your Dr. Or psycologist, whoever it is whodeals with your mental health meds. I am just so frustrated with the amount of people who are not getting the help they need. I guess when new medications are avail. They havent been around for years to do long term studies, so if it helps short term and continues to work, no one thinks to monitor the wellness and change the meds when necessary. Have a read of you have time, this post has important information.
Please read the following article. It is important to read to help you, so this NEVER happens to you. The article will follow, after my rambling and many words.
Oh yes, another article about benzodiazipine withdrawal. Unfortunately, it is on my mind due the fact that I cannot do anything other than write. I did go to my daughter’s show choir performance yesterday, because it is something I love to do and I love her. It was hard to be there, but I did it and once again had to act that I was feeling okay when I was not. I pray those days will be over soon.
This time I was not acting or pretending I was happy, when I was not. I am very happy, but my body is not. So, this time I had to act like I was feeling physically well instead of mentally well. That…

Amazing Sue! It only makes sense coming from someone who knows. I know nothing about this, but I do know other people need to know about this. Thank you!
The more you take, the more you need.
The more you need, the more you speed
to take more, this desire not an intentional creed.
You become trapped and unable to be freed
from the spell and power of a tiny little pill.
You become stuck,
a slave of the master of a tiny little pill,
causing a messy brain spill,
dangerous enough to kill.
blind to dangers of this tiny little pill.
There were no warnings,
no sign of danger.
and everything else,
except this tiny little pill.
It took a near fatal mistake
for the alarms to awake
and capture this tiny little pill.
Finally, the answers,
and the puzzle almost solved
of how my brain has evolved
into an unfamiliar,
organ in a body
that was once mine.
Klonopin is the name of this…

I quite often think about the people who have jobs that require them to go above and beyond the call of duty. I mean, really, I guess they don't have to, but in reality, most do. Nurses, Doctors, Firemen, Policemen, Police women, Health Care Aides, etc. cont'd...
Again, I must reblog one of Sue’s posts. “My loud bipolar whispers”. There is so much important information in this post, please read if you are bipolar or going through other mental illness issues. The post refers to medications and such that can be dangerous to your mental health instead of helping.
Here is the sad truth and reality about taking medications for a mental illness. I think any long use on the exact same medication can become problematic because they wreak havoc on your entire body and most importantly your brain.
I have now taken two medications that have nearly killed me for two different reasons. The first medication that nearly killed me last year was called Trileptal, used to treat bipolar. I was on the highest dose of that medication usually prescribed for approximately eight years.
The other medication that most recently almost killed me is Clonazepam (generic name). Well known as Klonopin (brand name). I have taken Klonopin for over 20 years to help control my anxiety, hypomania and mania symptoms.
I most recently learned of the severe, possible lethal complications for using Klonipin as long and as much as I did. I learned of the dangers of Klonipin…
