Hello Recovery Friends and Welcome New Visitors;
It’s almost a New Year! So I hope you will join me in continuing to share “Hope” with others who suffer from mental illness & disorders, and those in recovery from addiction!
I’m sharing my new “New Donation Website” to ask for your financial support & donations.
As a Writer who suffers from many “Mental & Emotional Disorders,” and the many medications I take prevent me from being able to hold steady employment due to the side affects of the medications, and my symptoms. I also have ”Adult Attention deficit disorder and OCD.
After having a professional career in “Banking” for 20+ years, and then be told by an employer your to slow, you don’t pay attention or take direction enough, and not good enough, only to be let go from a job, is very hard and difficult to take. Lets not let this happen to someone else. Lets share “Awareness” to the public about these disorders and illness’s.
Many also know I live life in Recovery as well for 7 years. So I became a Writer, Blogger, and Advocate, to help break through this “STIGMA” for myself and most importantly for others! Of course it doesn’t pay the bills,…lol, but it makes the heart feel good to help others! It is now my life mission to help others who suffer from Mental and Emotional illness, and those in Recovery.
I “Advocate” and give a “Voice” on these issues, because many who suffer don’t have a voice. They suffer in “Silence” because of the *Stigma* wrapped around these issues! So when you “Donate Today,” you are doing more than supporting ME financially, you’re giving those who suffer in “SILENCE” a Voice!….

*MY MENTAL DISORDERS ARE*;
1.) Panic disorder with agoraphobia is an anxiety disorder in which a person has attacks of intense fear and anxiety. There is also a fear of being in places where it is hard to escape, or where help might not be available.
Agoraphobia usually involves fear of crowds, bridges, or of being outside alone.
This article discusses panic disorder with agoraphobia. For information on panic disorder itself, see also: Panic disorder
Causes, incidence, and risk factors
The exact causes of panic disorder and agoraphobia are unknown. Because panic attacks often occur in areas or situations where they have happened in the past, panic may be a learned behavior. Agoraphobia sometimes occurs when a person has had a panic attack and begins to fear situations that might lead to another panic attack.
Anyone can develop a panic disorder, but it usually starts around age 25. Panic disorder is more common in women than men. .
2.) Bipolar Disorder is considered a mental disorder and it is one of the most common affective disorders. Bipolar Disorder is distinguished by episodes that may be associated with depression, mania, hypo manic or mixed behavior.
Bipolar is a terrible disease that is caused from period of serious depression. If you carry any Bipolar signs, please consult with a doctor to seek Bipolar Treatment and Bipolar Medicine.
3.) A psychiatric disorder characterized by obsessive thoughts and compulsive actions, such as cleaning, checking, counting, or hoarding. Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), one of the anxiety disorders, is a potentially disabling condition that can persist throughout a person’s life. The individual who suffers from OCD becomes trapped in a pattern of repetitive thoughts and behaviors that are senseless and distressing but extremely difficult to overcome. OCD occurs in a spectrum from mild to severe, but if severe and left untreated, can destroy a person’s capacity to function at work, at school, or even in the home.
ADHD in Adults
4.) Adults with ADHD may have difficulty following directions, remembering information, concentrating, organizing tasks, or completing work within time limits. If these difficulties are not managed appropriately, they can cause associated behavioral, emotional, social, vocational, and academic problems. .
