I can’t wait until I start working regular hours this summer so I have
so that I can start doing MMA stuff again. I really don’t work out unless I’m doing something like a sport, and I do love my blood sports.
Sane.org is a snazzy little website that provides education, support and training for mental illness. The website it packed with resources, links, fact sheets and podcasts to help those with mental illnesses and those who want to learn more.
The website is packed full with information. Some of the drop down menus include video showroom, Mind + Body, Mindful Employer, Research, and my personal favourite People Like Us. They’ve also got a live chat, and a helpline (with information for other services).
The run a range of projects, my favourite being the Say No to Stigma campaign, which as someone with a mental illness I think is highly important and beneficially to helping those suffering.
One of the most useful things I found on the website was the Factsheets and Podcasts link. The Factsheets range from diagnosis, translations, suicide prevention and bereavement, and related fact sheets which include antidepressant medication, dealing with a traumatic event and getting back to work.
The website is a little fiddly to get around, but full or great things I’ve never thought to look up. One which I will probably invest in will be SmokeFree Resources in the Mind + Body Initiative. As those of us with mental illness are more often smokers they have put together a kit to stop smoking if you have a mental illness, something I have been looking for.
The other thing that is great about this website is they have their own bookshop with resources they’ve put together, so anything you want more information on can be bought straight from them.
Basically if you’re after more information on mental illness sane.org is the place to be. It’s a brilliant place with a great initiative behind it, to give those with mental illness the information and knowledge to get better. StigmaWatch just tops it off. StigmaWatch if a project that provides feedback to the media about accurate and responsible accounts of mental illness and suicide.

We’re not easy to live with when we are like this.
People who believe money can’t buy happiness have obviously never been in debt
i hate this line its literally just “shut up poor people”
like maybe money doesnt buy happiness per se but you know being able to go out sometimes and have a life does, being able to buy your family nice presents for christmas does, knowing you can pay your bills does …
its the line that someone who has never had to worry about making ends meet for basic needs like food and shelter says.
I would be really happy if I could pay the rest of my rent this month. Like REALLY HAPPY.
