GENERAL MODNOTE
The re-instated text below was taken from http://www.somalinet.com/forums/viewtop ... 8&t=355895 . See the modnote below: THWOTH @ ..

I have struggled with problems like anxiety and depression

I think it stems from childhood. I was always a good kid but I would internalize things a lot. I think I became mildly depressed around 18 or 19. A lot of life changes at this time. New city. University. Job. Family struggles. Financial problems. Moving multiple times Etc. It became a situational problem where I didn’t have the proper tools to deal with stress. So I would internalize everything, became very very tired.. Worrying made me exhausted and tired which led to depression. I was basically burnt out.
TO get my health in order I took a break from school and work. I did volunteer at a hospital and exercised and took medicine to get my energy level up which helped. Eventually I started back with school and work.

What I learned for this journey:

1.To know when to communicate and ask for help.
2. Learned to lighten my load in life and just do what I can
3. Have a lot more empathy for those who are even more worse off than me.

Why am I discussing this?

I think people need to be more open to discussions about mental health issues. I have seen a lot and experienced a lot. For years I would feel ashamed about discussing this. But why should I? NO one is perfect. Yes my anxiety issues are still present but I am working on it. Some people have diabetes, some people have anger management issues. We all have our challenges and struggles.

I want people to become more understanding and open concerning mental health problems, illness, disorders etc.

I want people to discuss it more so they can help themselves and the people they care about. When an issue is not discussed enough then it creates more problems. Learn about it and please feel comfortable discussing it.

Anyways, that’s my story

I am not a great writer. So excuse any errors

Add any motivational comments, whatever that helps

She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

For the second time. At least.

wow. I must remember to never take anything Voltage says about himself, or any opinion he expresses as being genuine. Nobody should ever pretend to have those kind of problems unless they do. Talk about trolling. :yuk:

Voltage,

When quoting material from external sources please use the forum's quote-tags as well as providing a link. Plagiarism, and substantial editing and revision of post, misrepresents information and is confusing to others and should be avoided. Removing the first post of a topic after comments have been posted renders the thread effectively useless.

If you, or any member, feels they may have posted something in error please PM a moderator or use the report function in the normal way. The original text and topic title have been reinstated, for context only, but the topic will remain closed.
