  • Three Tips to manage depression and suicidal thoughts with or without medications: Guest blogger Douglas Bloch shares the management system that saved his life

    Julie Fast

    A note from Julie: I’ve known Douglas from the mental health community here in Portland, Oregon in the US for over ten years. I knew he would be the perfect guest blogger as he offers so many effective resources. I like that Douglas goes to trainings- he offers so much of his information for free- he is a true example of what he writes about and he saves lives! When someone like Douglas offers his email to the public, he means it. So drop him a line! I especially enjoy his videos. They are on tough topics, but are very accessible! Take it away Douglas…. My name is Douglas…

  • How are your friendships these days?

    Julie Fast
    31 Aug 2014 | 11:42 am
    How do you deal with change in your friendships? Changes in friendships are  inevitable, especially as we get older. I went through the wave of changes when my friends started having kids. I never wanted children, but most of my friends did. I saw them less once the kids were born- but now that the kids are getting older, I see these friends more!  When friends get into a GOOD relationship, you see them less. It’s natural. When it’s a BAD relationship, you talk to them more because they want to vent. It can be hard to take if you’re feeling left out.. because the person…
  • Accepting New Family Member and Partner Coaching Clients

    31 Aug 2014 | 12:03 am
    Five years ago, I started coaching partners and family members of people with bipolar disorder as an addition to my writing career. I never, ever thought I would find work that I enjoy as much as I enjoy coaching. I feel at home with the parents and partners as I have been where they are- and I remain calm during the crises that many of my clients are going through while we are working together. Bipolar disorder is like a puzzle. It’s not always easy to find the right pieces on your own. It helps to have a coach as a guide. My coaching practice has room for new clients. I take new…

Without further ado here is her post:- I had this wonderful post all lined up for International Blog Swap day, where I was knowledgeable about blogging, warm and witty, charming and all the rest.

    The Last Degree Parenthood has inspired plenty of families to seek home base businesses to spend more time with their kids at home. Since becoming a mum myself I have seen mums and dads start their own eBay businesses, consulting, network marketing, party planning, making stuff for the markets, sewing, taking up photography, tutoring…. with the same goal in mind.  The types of businesses have been endless as everyone tries to achieve that dream of working from home. In the same token I see those marketers who try to encapsulate the images of what it is to combine Work + Home or Work +…

    The Last Degree My niche is Life. For the past year or so I have had paralysis of analysis in establishing an online market brand. Paralysis of analysis is not great to be in and I see my team go through it when there is so much online training they get stuck and don’t do anything. But it has come to pass I have been blogging and learning all about online marketing since 2008 and like any accumulated knowledge it has come to fruition that I’ve learnt a lot but I lost some of that passion for blogging and the reason why I came online in the first place. For the past year I have struggled…

So I left the family to take a walk to the local lookout and to get some breath air. Everyone knows exercise is great but keeping to a schedule and resolution to lose weight and get fit is a constant battle with almost everyone I know. I also have a wedding to plan this next 12 months and as my birthday flipped over to another year there was ever right now for another aim to lose a few kilos. No more could I say I only JUST had twins…

  • Overcoming Obsessive Thoughts: Calm Your Mind Without Sitting to Meditate

    Mary Rogers

    Another great article from Tiny Buddha and Bill Lee, whose article from Om Times I posted recently. This is more than a simple instruction on mindfulness, but also a story his profound struggle with mental illness and learning to manage his symptoms of bipolar disorder and PTSD.  Even more than that it is a inspirational story of survival and triumph over the odds.

  • On Being Bi-Polar, Doctors Assistants, Drugs, and All Over the Map

    29 Aug 2014 | 3:18 pm
    On Being Bi-Polar, Doctors Assistants, and Drugs. I have a trail of drugs. I could literally write a book about drugs that didn’t work. Today I went to the Dr. They told me to bring the bag of drugs. So I did. The shock was telling, and the reaction was curt and impatient that they had to record that. I dont know how many times they asked me which ones I was taking? Or how many times I told them none. I just wonder what they thought bipolar looked like? Did they think it was a bag of flowers? Love? The Assistants, 2 of them, had to do the recording. The way they treated me, was nothing…
  • Assaulted by Noise

    journeyupward
    29 Aug 2014 | 2:49 pm
    Noise. It’s all around us, some pleasant and soothing, and some that grates severely on our nerves.  I’ve talked with several people who are bipolar and they all agreed that loud noise, harsh sounds, loud TVs or music, even movies or concerts, can actually become a trigger. They are sound sensitive.  This is a major issue for me too. I avoid places that bombard my senses.  But I can’t avoid my home.  My husband loves action shoot-em-up movies, war movies, crime shows and he would always turn the volume up so he could hear all the details (he’s a bit hard of…

    A Mad Reality

  • Three things

    26 Aug 2014 | 4:01 pm
    I promised my therapist that when this school semester was over I would call about the DBT program. So guess what’s on my to-do list for tomorrow. Arg. I know I shouldn't be complaining about doing this, I’m just not comfortable with the idea of it. I don’t think I’ll be very good in group therapy. I would much rather do this on my own. But I said I would give it a try.My problem is that when I’m in a good state, I don’t want to spend time thinking about the dark times. I rather just enjoy things.My therapist and I spend a lot of time brain storming ways to keep me stable, to…

    I’m not sure if I’ve fully recovered from my episode a couple weeks ago. I don’t feel I’ve been in a “normal” state since then.For the first time in a while I’m not tired. I don’t feel like sleeping. I want to be doing things. Unfortunately what I should be doing is homework. Unfortunately my mind is not up for that. It has other ideas. A lot of other ideas. I just can’t focus. Even trying to write this. I keep stopping midsentence. And just. I don’t know. My mind goes somewhere else.I need to paint my toe nails. My cats are cute. There is a lot of noise outside. My house…
  • A lonely feeling

    22 Aug 2014 | 4:47 pm
    I’m not mentally stable. My mind does not function like others. I’m not happy about this. I do not choose to be like this. I really wish people close to me would stop telling me what they think is “wrong” or what they disagree with when it comes to diagnoses. No one knows what goes on in my head other than me. I try my best to share, especially with my family and doctors because that’s the best thing to do, but I will never be able to fully express what it is like. And that’s a lonely feeling.I really don’t have much more to say. Well, that’s a lie. There is a lot more I could…
  • Dreaming of a break

    20 Aug 2014 | 2:36 pm
    I am a little worried. Today has been a bit of a blur. The past couple days the noise in my head have been particularly bad. I have been able to function though. Today it got too much while I was at work. I ended up going home for two reasons; I had such a hard time concentrating on what I was supposed to be doing, and I was honestly scared this was going to lead to another episode like the one two weeks ago. I tried a Xanax to see if that helped (it didn’t), and took a long nap (which did seem to help). I feel much calmer now.I’m really hoping all this is stress related. I’m used to…
  • Hallucinations and supervision

    18 Aug 2014 | 4:58 pm
    I never know how much detail is alright for me to get into on this blog. The topic of my therapy session today was hallucinations. This is something I’ve had in my life for two years. Auditory hallucinations. The only time I’d say it got serious was a couple weeks ago. The majority of the time I just hear noises. Someone knocking on a door, water dripping, paper ripping. Random you see. I’ve heard music.So yeah.My therapist is concerned that even though my antipsychotic dose was increased it hasn’t made a difference. It could just be too soon, we are going to see how it goes for the…
