I am going to be blunt here, because until I became blunt with myself nothing changed. If you are suffering from Depression, anxiety PTSD or any form of mental illness, unless you seek help you will not get better, period! Only you can help yourself, family and friends can try their best to help you but if you don’t take responsibility and want to help yourself, you will not get better.
We like to be the victim, Some of you may be thinking what would I know? Fair question. Well if your in a deep black hole, and feel no one understands what you’re going through? I have been there… My hole got so deep and so dark I decided to kill myself, and I attempted too. Luckily for me I was saved by my dog Trigger seconds before the end and I am still here today.
I was a victim, a victim to myself! The moment I took responsibility and stopped blaming others and convincing myself they have no idea what I am going through and got some help was the moment things started to change for the better. If you break your leg and ignore it, it will not fix its self. Yet, so many of us ignore our own broken Mental Health for years. You are where you are because of you. Only you can change your position.
If you sit back and play the victim you will remain the victim, if you step up and ask for help you will surprise yourself, you are not a looser, life isn’t worthless you are just not thinking clearly. It is not going to be easy, in fact it will be hard, exhausting and there will be tears. But some short term hard work for a good life? Seems worth it to me!
My only regret in my 28 years is not seeking help earlier. I have lost 5 years of my life to alcohol abuse and feeling sorry for myself. Please, please don’t make the same mistake as me. Learn from it.
HEALTH ALERT: A deadly virus that hasn’t been seen for 40 years has suddenly resurfaced and is targeting our most vulnerable animals. Here’s how you can keep your pet’s safe…
Feline parvovirus (also known as feline enteritis) is already having a devastating impact on the most fragile members of the furry family; kittens and shelter cats. So far more than 50 cats, mostly kittens, have been killed by the virus that is highly contagious and spreads quickly through adoption centres. Sadly, 3 animal shelters in western Sydney have had to close their doors just to limit it’s spread while disease experts try to understand where a virus, that was believed to be eradicated, has emerged from.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The classic signs of an infection are fever, lethargy, loss of appetite as well as vomiting and diarrhea. It's from the same family as canine parvovirus which caused a similar outbreak just a few months ago. Preventing the virus is surprisingly easy. Your cat’s regular annual vaccination provides protection against feline enteritis.
