Reading an article on BBC - https://www.bbc.co.uk/bbcthree/article/304ced35-6546-46e9-8f77-a37d8a76ae9e about Mental Health Awareness Week and how it should be more than just 7 days.
As someone who suffers deeply with mental health I whole heartedly agree. This shouldn't be a topic confined just 7 days a year to talk about it should be talked about daily to remove the stigma and taboo that goes with it.
It was the stigma that goes with suffering with a mental health illness that stopped me reaching out to the people that could have helped me which then lead to a suicide attempt. 9 months later and I am still recovering. I still feel there are times I cannot talk to people as I still feel like there is stigma that goes along with the label of 'having a mental health issue.' It should definitely be brought up more, talked about and made more 'normal' in a way so that people don't feel ashamed, scared or embarrassed to talk about these things. ♡

Been off the radar a lil bit ☁️ but I wanted to revive myself here n create something since it is mental health awareness week! A very important topic that shouldn't be taboo-ised! ⭐️ For me, I continued doing embroidery as it helped me channel my anger and stress that could have otherwise taken a violent turn. It has not only become what has lead me to my career, but also has been therapeutic form of art. Having said that there have been many times I wanted to give up, which I know we all have had those moments, but those situations only get darker if no one else knows. So talk to a mate, family, DM etc about all your issues! It’s an underrated step that helps 🌶🌊 You can also check out @mindcharity where you could also talk to someone about how you're feeling or advice/help on their infoline 0300 123 3393 or text 86463 no matter how small or large the issue is.

"Your purpose is stronger than your worst day" - Jamar Rogers
**********************************Listening to @jamarrogersofficial talk about his story and how he has overcome barriers was such an inspirational and spiritual experience. He became vocal about his HIV status when he participated on @nbcthevoice. Then he collaborated with @actagainstaids in hopes to reach out to other peers and inspire his community. Jamar is so humble, friendly, and appreciative of life and the work sexual health educators do encourage folks to engage in #hivprevention or #hivtreatment. REMEMBER: We can #StopHIVtogether and #StopHIVstigma. We need to bring #closetedconversations out to the forefront and not be afraid to be ourselves. .

This photograph is from one of the most difficult workshops conducted by the team. It took us the majority of an hour to get the girls comfortable in speaking about menstruation in front of all their teachers - male and female.
We need safe and open spaces for conversation to break the myths and taboos.
In the end, it was great to see how much the girls loved our reusable pads and so many teachers came to us with questions for facilitating a more comfortable experience for their students. #ProjectBaala

I went to my 12 hour clinical today exhausted after only a few hours of sleep and right off had the most inspirational day. Sometimes in school I get a bit discouraged and shocked at the giggles, comments, opinions and reactions to issues. Today I was in the ER all day and came across patients with some very taboo issues. One of my best qualities as a human is I don’t judge, I empathize. I truly don’t judge on the gender, fetish’s , lifestyle habits, etc. of a person. My hard limit is I have a hard time with racists but honestly I don’t think I would flinch at a racist patient, and I’m not even saying that I would have to consciously compartmentalized it and be aware of my bias. I think naturally in my role as a nurse I wouldn’t think about it too much, if a nurse isn’t going to be compassionate at your most vulnerable time, who is?? (I’m sure in 1 year this may not be the story) But this quality is what will make me stand out as a nurse, compassion and non judgement. I’m definitely not the most skilled, knowledgeable, or confident. Saying this, multiple times todayI felt myself tense up, not at the super uncomfortable issue I saw with patients, but it was in anticipation of the response from the nurses. The nurses never skipped a beat and showed nothing but compassion and non judgement. Who knows how they felt inside but if they had an opinion they hid it well. This made my heart warm. Can you imagine having something going on with yourself that truly embarrassed, mortified and shamed you...your nurse is suppose to be your non judgmental safe place, at least I would like to think so. I hope this stays a common theme I see among nurses. I’m not an idiot, I know a lot of this has to do with being desensitized after a certain amount of time. It just feels nice to be inspired by other seemingly compassionate people. Every single day I ask myself, “how in the fuck am I going to get from school to nursing, I feel SO incompetent ALL the time, I study sooo much but know nothing!!” Well tiny tiny puzzle pieces are starting to fit. I’m feeling a glimmer of hope and the tiniest sparkle of confidence shine through. It feels good.💫✨👩🏼‍

This quote😂! Sometimes I wonder how at one time I almost accepted that some things in biz, relationships, life etc needed to be a certain way..NOT AT ALL!
