#2 - The Sting of Stigma: Conclusion "It is often said that a loving, supportive environment with clear boundaries is the one thing that makes a difference to someone struggling with the emotional and cognitive distress related to what is termed "mental illness"...But how often does this actually happen within home and family - or community?"
#1 - Abuse: I "didn't know that I didn't know""As long as I lived my life "on guard" for the next "abuser" I was focussed again on finding my "solution" in something or someone outside of myself...instead of concentrating on learning how to no longer be a victim."
Thanks to all of you who drop by each day - and continuing to let me know what it is that you find interesting by voting each day and week with your "clicks".
I hope you'll "stay tuned" as we continue to talk about making that shift from "illness" to living a life of "wellness"...
This week we'll be taking a look at diagnosis in "mental health" issues as something I "have" and how making this mind-shift to "wellness" can empower us to create the life of our choosing...plus lots of other interesting - and maybe even controversial - ideas about the "disease" paradigm of mental health issues that are coming up over the next few weeks.
