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.

    1. How about this, only because I’ve done this before. Write your response to the following prompts, and just give me the headsup… And, I will read, and reblog for you. Trust me, there are other bloggers that have a difficult time in pingbacks, and sometimes it’s not guaranteed it will work.
      Sound good to you, Michelle?

              1. I am starting to get stressed about it because it is a new thing and I’m not familiar with all of this. Sorry for being thick….
                But do I write a post about one of your prompts in my blog? I do not know how to do links or anything…to link it to your blog. Sorry I’m so rubbish…

                1. No need to apologize.
                  Yes, This is week #8, Just read my original post, the subect matter is about beating or fighting off anxiety/panic attacks and/or manic episodes.
                  You therefore write your post on your site, and when you have completed it… Just gie me the heads up, like we are doing right now… And, I will check out you post, read of course, and take what you wrote and simply copy/paste to my site.
                  Sound good?
                  Also, son’t feel pressured… You have until Tuesday to complete the prompts/prompt.

                  1. Thank you for being kind and understanding…
                    I’m having a weird day.
                    We are going to be moving in August and it’s a big move…I have so much going on in real life right now. Lots of stress and nerves, and I just come on my period…so I’ve been crying and I’m just a bit all over the place.

                    1. You are most welcome, Sweetie. I do understand stress REALLY well.
                      Where are you moving to?
                      Just take it easy on yourself, don’t add any more pressure to yourself either. It’s not written in stone that you must do the prompts… Trust me, “Working on Us” is not going anywhere.
                      Just take care of you first and foremost! 😘

                    2. OK…if I don’t do this one then I will do another one…
                      Thank you for showing me what to do.
                      Yeah everything is overwhelming me a bit actually. But I’m just taking one day at a time…

                    3. We are just moving to a smaller place, which is only about a mile or so away, so in same area, but we have the place we are in to empty, get rid of or sell things, as this is a massive place… And then we gotta get to knew place and clean, decorate and then start to move in just what we need. We have a whole month, but it still worries me, there is such a lot to do.
