Diagnosed But Not Defeated!

At 59yrs. of age, I have lived with Major Depression and several other debilitating afflictions...all of my life! I was 40 when I was actually diagnosed and the tsunami of emotions, questions and the deep feelings of hopelessness and despair, seemed powerful enough to destroy me. However, I chose to not let that happen and started down a path of self-education, regeneration and a sense of purpose! For almost 20yrs. now, I have been in a constant struggling. Not to regain my life, because in spite of it all, I managed to have some significant successes. But to have the fullest life imaginable and to help others, like myself, to have the same. I have become a Certified Peer Support Specialist, and am in school on-line to acquire an Associates Degree in Human services and a Diploma in Substance Abuse Counseling. I sit on a Consumer Family Focus Committee, and I am a Disability Advocate. It's time for change to begin...for us all!

Published Poem from The Insight Poetry Book (PMHCA Conference 2011)

Energize, Organize, Act

In my life , I'm not going from point A to point B,
I'm coming full circle...three-sixty degrees!
See, I've always known God had a plan for me;
A purpose to help set the captives free..
To Energize, Organize, Act.

I was born with mental illness; "...a thorn in my flesh"!
But it made me work harder to do my best;
Not understanding why I was so different from the rest...
Still reaching and striving to pass every test;
To Energize, Organize, Act!

Then there came a time of testing, when God took the reins,
A time that was fraught with humility and pain!
To be remolded and transformed for a path that was planned;
That I'd fulfill my true purpose in this fallen land!
To help my like kind, to answer THEIR call...
To Energize, Organize, Act!!!!!

You're so interesting! I don't believe I've truly read through a single thing like this before. So great to find someone with some original thoughts on this topic. Really.. many thanks for starting this up. This website is something that's needed on the internet, someone with a bit of originality!

Een veel voorkomende fout is dat Dankjewel met maar een afbreking van het woord wordt geschreven maar alle woorden horen aan elkaar geschreven te worden of juist alle woorden apart van elkaar.

Dank u dat we hier mogen verblijven, dank u voor het eten, dank u voor het redden van onze kinderen. Dat is wat we met deze actie willen zeggen, zei Khaldoun Al Barmawee in Emmen.

dank je wel, dit zijn goede antwoorden, maar het zijn antwoorden op een andere vraag.
Daarbovenop is er de psychologische weerstand tegen doedelen -- dank je wel, Freud.

Seorang teman baik adalah seseorang yang menginspirasimu untuk menjadi versi terbaik dari dirimu sendiri. Ingat ini: Siapa pun yang membantumu saat kamu melakukan sesuatu setengah hati, bisa mendorongmu menjadi sepenuh hati melalui kebaikannya dan kerja sama yang baik, adalah teman sejatimu. Terima kasih sudah berbagi kasih untuk shifa , donasi yg sudah di dapat total 4jt sudah di serahkan lsng ke Ibundanya shifa di RS Islam , oleh Ratna Megasari , kondisi shifa sekarang sudah nga sesak lagi , tapi kondisi ya masih lemah
