  • Commentary: I Am Not A Woman

    This is not a post where I give my approval or disapproval to the issue of abortion. It is a post that I have been giving thought to since yesterday, Friday, morning. I ask you not to infer one way or the other of where I may stand. “I recognize no rights but human rights […]

  • Social Media; Mass Shooters and Manifestos

    We need to start identifying the triggers that aggravate mental health issues in our society – bullying, social media negativity and anxiety, gender based violence, substance abuse, stigma around issues such as maternal issues, etc., and we need to speak up about these more and get to the source of the problems. Sanam SaeedRead more […]

  • Commentary: When Words Are Not Enough

    ” I’m sorry for your loss!” “My condolences!” “I will be praying for you!” Once again America is in shock, another mass shooting at an elementary school.

  • Motivational Poem- “Don’t Quit-Jill Wolf”

    Don’t quit when the tide is lowest,For it’s just about to turn;Don’t quit over doubts and questions,For there’s something you may learn.Don’t quit when the night is darkest,For it’s just a while ’til dawn;Don’t quit when you’ve run the farthest,For the race is almost won.Don’t quit when the hill is steepest,For your goal is almost […]

  • Clarification – Comments On Subject

    Lately I have been having difficulty approving some comments. These comments were not harassment, or even vulgar.

  • Influenced? Influencer?

    Power is a tool, influence is a skill; one is a fist, the other a fingertip. Nancy Gibbs This is not about mental health. It is not about my recovery. It is about two words, influenced and influencer. I am not a professional marketer. In secondary school I did, however, I took marketing classes for […]

  • Some Thoughts Since I Last Posted

    I have enjoyed my time to re-connect with friends, to spend some time finding myself.

    Back in March when I was having such great pain my friend took the lead and spoke with my surgeon’s office. She gave me a date to see him, which was today. I was up early because it takes me a long time to get myself moving. Along with a couple of cups of coffee […]

  • The Gang is All Here

    “The mob believes everything it is told, provided only that it be repeated over and over. Provided too that its passions, hatreds, fears are catered to.
