Check out this awesome 'Mental+Health+Matters' design on @TeePublic!

Hello, All! Welcome back to “Working on Us” – A series that represents people with mental health illnesses/disorders. 

~💚~

Before I begin Week #8, I’d like to share with you all the participants that had responded to Week #7 – Topic: Suicide/Suicidal Ideation.  I’m so proud of all of them because it takes courage to share a sensitive topic and personal accounts of what they, themselves have gone through.  So, if you haven’t read them throughout this past week… You can read them here.  Thank you!

Maybe it’s a once in while flare up, or an everyday burden, or maybe you’ve never experienced it at all. Whichever camp you fall into, I’ve compiled a few tips on how to overcome it in your day-to-day life. I hope this helps, and more importantly, I hope you know you are not alone.

It’s my pleasure to introduce this week’s topic for Week #8 “Working on Us” by

💚Success Stories of overcoming (an anxiety/panic attack, manic bipolar episode, whatever.)💚

Prompt #1  Write a narrative of what works for you when in the midst of a crisis, such as, anxiety/panic attack or a manic episode.  Please give an example of what happened, and how you broke free from it.

Example: Coping skills, talking to a family member or a friend, and/or therapy, mediations… (Just to name a few).

 

Prompt #2 Pick One or Both The Photos/Pictures and explain how it makes you feel?

Example: In any format you choose!  (Poetry, Short Prose, etc…)

 

Photo #1:

Aah, cleansing, refreshing rain.

Visual of the image is that of heavy rain with the sun shining and pouring on a plant up against a rock wall.

Photo #2

Rainbow Above The Flower Field

Visual of the image is a field of flowers in the colors of a rainbow and above it is a bright rainbow against a beautiful blue sky.
