May 26 - Anyone Who Would Consider Doing Something Like That Needs Help - Nice glib remark from an outsider. Of course help is needed, the question is whether you want to be the one to help? In this extreme a call needs to be placed for an ambulance, or a call for mobile crisis, not just an observation. Even better, being aware of the symptoms and intervene before it comes to this. Don’t write off the behavior as that person just being a jerk. Maybe the non-norm, acting out is a prelude to this image. It’s like learning CPR, learn symptoms and don’t write off.

2 years ago on this very morning I woke up in hospital to find out my suicide attempt was unsuccessful.
A few hours earlier the ambulance crew asked me why I done it.
On my hospital and police records it's on record as me replying "A million reasons"
On waking up that morning I was initially disappointed as I was in so much emotional pain. But as it became clear I'd walked away without a single injury I knew something special had happened and for the first time in months I felt happy to be alive and knew I had to do something big with my 2nd chance.
1 year ago today I got on the bike and attempted to cycle around the world.
I never quite got there, but the journey it took me on saved my life.
So what about today?
Well I've just had another accident and again have taken a lot from that, my recent fall on the bike made me realise just how much I value my health and fitness. I've made some huge changes in my life over these last 2 years and my new sporty lifestyle gives me so many reasons to live and my work in mental health gives me so much meaning and purpose.
Forget a million reasons to die.
I now have a million reasons to live.
Thanks for coming on the journey with me, here's to a very prosperous future for us all <3

The only time surface area is better in larger quantities is when referring to cells. I’m not studying biology here. This is about life as it relates to empathy. Each of us has baggage and it gets lighter when we realize that we’re not the only ones with a heavy load... find this rest @ the link in my bio!

I can't thank you guys enough for your support on today's pod episode and Instagram live. Life isn't all "hakuna matata" all the time, and that's totally and completely OKAY. I've been blown away by how many of you have shared that your struggles with mental health are similar to my own and just how all around amazing you guys have been.

✖️one thing I want to note is that there is no one good way to treat various mental health disorders. For me, no amount of meditation, tea and crystals can help keep my anxiety and depression at bay. That doesn't mean they aren't great tools! I use all of the above. I just need a little help from my friends...and by that I mean meds. That being said, meds may not be your thing and that's totally cool. I just wanted to share my own experience and journey so that you can have more resources when making a choice for you.

Next up... Joseph Cotgrave: approaching the theme of migration through the lens of his status as a HIV positive gay man, Joseph presents an ambitious sculptural work which explores the stereotypes and stigma attached to his sexuality and status. The addition of digital and neon works help to create an immersive installation, intended to force the audience to question their knowledge of the transmission, or migration, of the HIV virus.

When the eyes show how you're kinda high on a higher dose of anti-anxiety medication, to calm yourself down after a trigger, just so you can get out of the hotel bed to be able to try to have a good time with friends... it's not as easy as it might look... #mentalhealthawareness #bipolar #anxiety #mentalillness #endstigma

#5 & #6

Didn't post yesterday cuz I had to go into work after my infusion, so here's 5 & 6. This is what I've been listening to during the infusions (though first day I went with a Green Tara mantra). Plan your trips: you get super impaired during it but hearing is still there, so I was lucky to find this hour long video of a beautiful version of the Medicine Buddha mantra.

Yesterday was good but uneventful; today was my last of the recommended 6 sessions. Maybe it was cuz I've been listening to this mantra so much, or maybe it's cuz I was reading about the idea of grace in Pure Land Buddhism before going to bed last night, but I can only describe my experience today as grace-full. I "saw" a long life for myself for the first time in forever, a long life where I have a lot of good to do and share. I look forward to it.

Knowing what to say during difficult times can be challenging for many. When words seem to fail, show your loved ones know that you will simply be there for them and that they won't have to go through it alone. Sometimes that's all we have control over.
