Sejak kasus pengakuan seorang selebriti di Indonesia dengan gangguan Bipolar II, sayang sekali justru gangguan Bipolar seringkali jadi bahan candaan, bahan ejekan yang mungkin, tanpa disengaja. Terutama ditujukan pada orang-orang yang memperlihatkan kelakuan hiperbola alias berlebihan. Tapi tahukah kamu bahwa sebenarnya mengalami Bipolar itu sendiri sudah cukup berat bagi individunya, maupun keluarga di sekelilingnya? Dan tahukah kamu, justru sebaiknya kita mendampingi mereka karena di beberapa kasus ada kecenderungan sampai keinginan mengakhiri hidup? Terimakasih @bipolarcare.indonesia sudah hadir dan menghapus ketabuan pembicaraan soal Bipolar secara perlahan. Ayo, bantu sesama perangi stigma gangguan ini! 🇮🇩 ___ #MariPeka #IndonesiaPeka #SehatMentalIndonesia #KesehatanMental #MentalHealth #BipolarDisorders #Survivors #FightStigma #LawanStigma #SehatBersama #JiwaJugaPenting #SharingIsCaring

With over 6500 followers, most of you just know me as that tattooed girl that travels a lot!✈️I do have a lot of tattoos. My half sleeve is now a full sleeve. I do travel a lot. About to hit 20 countries! 😍 But what most of you don't know is I struggle with my mental health at times.🙍 In light of #anthonybourdain death and my own recent struggles, I encourage anyone who is also fighting their mental health to come forward. It does not make you weak; it makes you strong💪🏼. . . . . .✈ . . . . #sofetravel #solotraveling #solofemaletraveler #wandergoose #adventuresswomen #wanderful #explorerbabes #ig_travelworld #passportmatters #solotravelingisfun #worldwewander #adventuregirls #solotravelers #solotrips #passportsmatter #wanderwell #travelgage #suicideawareness #mentalhealthstigma #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthisreal #stopthestigma #fightstigma
Seeing the AIDS Quilt is always emotional. They brought out sections at yesterday's AIDS Walk and Run in Chicago while CGMC sang True Colors. I have to admit that I got a little choked up and had to pause to remember all those lives lost. #chicago #fall2018 #AIDSwalk #FightStigma #changetheworld #livetruebeyou #AidsQuilt #latergram

XII° Edizione del Trofeo Progetto Itaca presso il TCMilano Alberto Bonacossa. In una domenica estiva si sono sfidati sui campi dI via Arimondi 60 atleti di tutte le età, con la formula del doppio giallo. Sole, divertimento e un pò di sano agonismo tutto volto a raccogliere fondi per la storica associzione che si occupa da anni di coloro che soffrono di problemi psichici. Complimenti alla coppia vincitrice Lodigiani-Lori e a tutti i partecipanti per il grande impegno e per la generosità dimostrata! @_progettoitaca.org_ @progettoitacaonlus #progettoitaca #itaca #tennisclubmilano #tcmbonacossa #tcm #tennis 🎾 #🎾#fightstigma #stopstigma #tennismoments
No matter the shade, backdoor bs, non-compliance with public policies, and stigma I will still win. My diagnosis is my diagnosis. I will never let anyone blame me for asking for accommodations, for help, or any of the most basic things needed to succeed. People's decisions may affect me temporarily but it will never keep me from goals. Voice may not be heard now but I will never be silenced. God's purpose for my life can't be hindered by any human being. #IamnotmyMedicalDiagnosis #IwillRise #MyVoiceMatters #PTSDWarrior #BipolarDisorderWarrior #BrainDisorders #ADHD #Dyslexia #FightStigma #FightDiscrimination #knowyourrights #NeverFearBacklash or being #Blackballed or #peopleusingyourdiagnosisagainstyoufor #AdvocatingforSelf #Iwontbemarginalized

Thank you #MelyssaFord for being open about your struggle with depression in a world where we constantly have to battle stigma in mental illness.

Taking inspiration from the works of my friend @booksbyken (solely for the format, not the content) I've decided to do some writing and see if it helps get some things off my chest.

The person you're becoming may cost you people, relationships, and material things. You must choose your true self & journey over everything ✨ . Sometimes to find peace, one must be willing to sever ties with that which brings the noise and chaos into their soul ⚡ . Ultimately, you cannot change other people. You can only change yourself. When you evolve as a person, those who are creating turmoil in your life will either have to grow with you in acceptance or float away. If you shift, everything around you shifts 🌼 . The moment you realize you are worthy, you shift your energy to attract people who respect that value in you ♥️🌈 . Isn't that better than pretending to be someone or something you're not anyway? 🍄 . 💋💋
Dating & Divulging a Mental Health Diagnosis! (Don’t forget to ▶️SWIPE !!) When is a good time, if ever?!? Date # 2.... or 2 years down the road? Here is my own story & a few thoughts on the matter!. . A huge thank you to @beautifulspeech for the question & topic idea! 😊
This month is very special for me as I live with a disorder which cannot be cured ! _ When Dystonia affected my whole right side, I asked myself ? Why me ? Running from one doctor to another just to get my mobility back ? Sometimes I also feel it's Dystonia that doesn't let me get into relationship with a girl ? _ You see, it's a stubborn ex-girlfriend who needs to part ways with me (That's a part of me shouting out living with an incurable disorder).Inspite of that it soon will part ways , I am sure,I will make it(I'll try I guess 🙄) ! 😂💪 _ I am writing this article to tell you'll that Dystonia didn't stop me at all ! I surmounted it ! I do proudly twitch uncontrollably at times but : ...... • I yet ride a Bike (My Royal Enfield ) ! • I Gym 7 days a week ! • I run 8 kilometers almost everyday ! • I am in shape always ! • I love and train hard in mixed martial arts ! _ I do all of this with my whole right side not functioning properly ! The pain of my muscles uncontrollably twitching is something I have learnt to manage over a period of 5 years . _ A SHOUT OUT FROM A DYSTONIA FIGHTER/WARRIOR! SPREAD AWARENESS FOR A CAUSE . STAND TALL WITH ME THIS MONTH ! _ WHAT'S STOPPING YOU FROM LIVING LIFE ? WHAT'S YOUR EXCUSE TO GIVE UP ? _ SPECIAL MENTION : @yoocandoanything . @thereddoor_project . @itsoktotalk . @bhorfoundation . @cafecounsel @disable_the_fable #dystonia #dystoniaawareness #september #dystoniaawarenessmonth #dystoniamovesme #dystoniawarrior #dystoniasucks #dystonialife #disabilities #disabilityawareness #disabled #disability #disabledandcute #cando #nevergiveup #awareness #fightstigma #fight
For months I have been struggling with if/how to proceed with my blog & this account. Depression is a hard thing to write about. When I'm really depressed I have a hard time accomplishing anything, and when I'm not I really don't want to spend extra time thinking about it. But some recent tragic events and inspiring words made me realize that I have to try. So consider me trying. I'm hoping to publish another blog post on Monday. .....that is, if today's brain fog ever clears up. This past week has been pretty productive for me, so it figures that today I'd crash and burn. Not having my brain function at full capacity is one of the things about depression I hate the most. Maybe it's just the #baldmountainfire and #polecreekfire smoke. Anyway, keep me accountable, guys. And have a great weekend. If you need someone, I'm here. #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #fightstigma #fightthestigma #youarenotalone #depressionsucks #lds #ldsmom #brainfog #youmatter #nami #mhfa

From the Instagram of Sarah Canney, runner I’ve followed for some time. Thank you for sharing this with us @runfargirl. #fightstigma “It’s OK to be not OK. Vulnerability is talking about being not OK when you’re in the middle of being not Ok. Not when it’s over and when you’re all cleaned-up and dusted-off (which was my way in the past), but when you’re all dirty and messy with life. . The thing is that WE ARE ALL not OK at some point or another. We’ve all got something and the more we hide and dismiss and stuff-down and cover up the more disordered and consuming the issue becomes. . I have this thing where I like everything to be planned and orderly and structured and when things don’t fall within that construct I flip out, like explosive anger flip out. It’s not pretty. It’s not good for the relationships that mean the most to me. And it’s especially not helpful when you’re trying to parent peacefully and homeschool. So I need some help. So I’m getting some help. . This control thing and all the underlying causes (anxiety and fear) and the subsequent fall-out (depression) are all things I’ve dealt with before in the form of an eating disorder. Now that I’m a decade beyond that behavior, I’m tackling new behaviors...all with the same roots. . Usually I’m good at managing it: journaling, running, meditation, talking with friends and family. But sometimes it becomes unmanageable...and that’s when you get help. . It’s OK to need help. #itsoktobenotok #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #vulnerability #keepitreal #counseling #therapy #reallife -- “
THIS @namibucks_ets @thepaintedbrain 💙💙 _ Regrann from @namibucks_ets - "We who struggle with these disorders can lead full, happy, productive lives, if we have the right resources”, said schizophrenia survivor Elyn Saks. . Diagnoses are meant only to serve as a roadmap to recovery. Too often diagnoses reduce people into labels, and the label becomes stigmatizing. Stigma can impede recovery. Always remember that you are HUMAN first and foremost, the labels themselves too often change, and we all are alike in more ways than we know! . We all have hopes, dreams, aspirations, fears, vices, and hidden strengths. .

Yesterday Keep Oregon Well had the opportunity to meet with students in Ms. Wright's class at Reynolds Learning Academy. We discussed the stigma associated with mental illness and barriers to getting help for those that need it. It was a great experience talking to the youth and we appreciate the invitation! . . . . #KeepOregonWell #ReynoldsLearningAcademy #FightStigma

Keep moving!! The climb is tough and hard and sometimes you have to stop to catch your breath or your focus but don't quit! Keep moving, take the next step & then the next. Keep going, you will get there. While you are climbing, talk to Him...be vulnerable in your exhausted & frustrated state. Cry before Him, He is waiting to meet with you. And when your legs can no longer lift you, ask Him to strengthen you because sometimes your climb requires supernatural strength & you were actually never meant to go it alone. So as you summit...submit!

Great graphic via @nami_westside_los_angeles on: How people support someone with mental illness vs. physical illness. It really sheds light concerning what is wrong with our thinking as it pertains to mental illness.
GREAT summary of Mental Illness below , WE ALL know someone or many that suffers w/ some sort of mental health imbalances these days, so PLEASE PLEASE BE PATIENT and ATTEMPT to understand a person or two before you write them off! Because you just may find “yourself” or a “precious love one” battling w/ a mental health disorder perhaps, short or long-term that may trigger one of these diagnoses. According to nowadays research, mental illness can be caused by a combination of junctures such as biological, genetic, psychological & environmental factors.

Meet our #HIVadvoacte David, @bluesparrows He is a big supporter of the AIDS Life Cycle . "It all started about 5 years ago when I was still living in NYC. I’ve always wanted to be part of the ride and a cause much bigger then myself. It combined two passions of mine, cycling and being active in the community. When i finally moved to Southern California, i said, “No more excuses, your doing this.” I have several people in my life that are HIV Positive, so in large part i do it for them and all my fellow brothers and sisters. It’s a powerful symbol to many people in and outside the community to see so many loving and caring people rally together to fight for a cause, (again, bigger then ourselves). It’s important to stay Vigilant and active. We have so much work ahead of ourselves and help and kindness are always need. The Beatles said it best, “All you need is love,” so i want to show and give mine." . . . . . . . . . . . #hivadvocates #hivtesting #hivawareness #gettested #testphotofight #aidsawareness #knowyourstatus #fightstigma #aids #hivtreatment #stigma #fightstigma #AIDS2018 #uequalsu #undetectable #Untransmittable #awareness #aidslifecycle
This is something I have been thinking about often. I have been recently struggling with vertigo and other awful effects from medication. The day I found out I had a blood clotting disorder my sister was with me. There are 6 years between us and in the last 32 years we have had so many up's and downs, fights, laughs and cries. I used to think I was her rock and that she needed me (I tear as I write this). Since my health has declined she has been the one person who hasn't stopped listening. She hasn't once told me to be positive or be something I don't want to be. She let's me go down the rabbit hole and she stays there with me. She has been stronger than I ever imagined she would be, she has been everything I needed to face this and not feel alone. When I saw this I realized this must be hard for her to watch me suffer. I haven't been myself or the sister she is used to and still she hasn't complained. Thank you @nworbrehtaeh you are my best friend for life and I know you hate mushy stuff and I won't hug you but I want you and everyone to know that in the darkest time of life you have been my light. I appreciate this isn't easy for you and I hope I can be a support to you when you need one 💕 #januskinase2 #jak2 #chronicillness #fightstigma #chronicblooddisorder #chronicpain #thankyou #nodiagnosis #autoimmunedisease #bestfriend #mysisteristhebest #lightindarkness #siblingssuffertogether #gratefulforyou
It's disgusting, cruel, powerful, degrading and so much more... "just go kill yourself"... ... I couldn't even tell you how many different kids throughout tha years said those exact words to me.. ..... Kids are cruel... Teach your kids young how much DAMAGE, as well as HEALING , that they can actually do to and for others... ... Another KID! 13, killed himself because of bullying... imagine it was your child who bullied another kid into suicide... or it was your child being bullied.. Don't be afraid to talk to your kids... because once it's too late- it's too late. #stopbullying #fightstigma #raiseyourvoice #standup #suicideawareness #kidsmatter #believeinchange

Some wholesome memes thrown your way ~🍑
My depression has kicked in. I haven’t felt sad like this in awhile. I am not sure how to handle it. Because of my new medication, I’ve been feeling good. But then all of a sudden today, it just hit me. That just proves Mental Illness is REAL. Because you can be on medication that works. You can be doing everything your doctor/therapist have told you to do and you still get hit with the depression cannon. All I’ve wanted to do is either sleep or cry today. But I know I can get through this. I know tomorrow is a new day. I have my coping mechanisms and I have my faith. So, I will come out on top! ♥️ #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthblog #mentalillness #depression #sad #bipolar #ptsd #anxiety #panicdisorder #faith #pray #real #fightstigma #stopstigma #veil #follow #followme #ig #insta #instagram #goodvibes #positivevibes #plussize #plussizblogger #blogger #blog #chubby
Doing my part to bring awareness to HIV and aging. Almost 50% of those living with HIV in the US are aged 50 or older. I am included in this group and thus this issue is especially pertinent to me.
