Mental Illness - are we really in control or are we at the mercy of our minds?
By DeBie Hive on August 20, 2014
It's been a rough few weeks in the news when it comes to mental health stories, and anyone out there who relates in any way to the demons Robin Williams struggled with has felt it.The reason his death has affected, and it still affecting so many of us is a simply one really...it could be us.Chew on that one for a while, nonbelievers.There is so much rhetoric and argument in the wake of a high profile death, there are always those who chastise those who mourn, there are always those who question the motivations of the person involved, and there is always a vast abundance of people speaking openly about something that they so clearly don't understand.For a few days, I had to make a conscious decision to step back from the updates and the news and the blogs and the rants. I had to make self preservation a priority for myself, which is something that I came to learn the hard was as I've walked the path I have walked in my life. Stories like his are so overwhelming to some of us that it is difficult if not impossible to shut it all out.Our minds don't work like those who enjoy the luxury of complete mental balance and stability. . . .
