May is about the end. As we know May is Mental Health Awareness Month statewide.
In the beginning of this month, I met a pretty girl, 30s. She is slim, tall, and smart.
She worked in a chemical company before pandemic. She lost her job, and now she has done hospital visiting due to her diseases.
She underwent multiple removal surgeries.
When I asked her about her life and how she managed her stressful, she asked me back. “Stress?” then “Let it go away.”
She laughed, I believe she had a beautiful smile behind her face mask, “No stress. Nah!”
It seems she knows how to cope her problems. That is great.
In truth, there are always some problems that we face as we live in this world.
Along the month of mental awareness, I am trying to “investigate” myself.
Do I have:
-feeling sad and low so bad
-extremely mood swing, euphoria
-very easily disturbed and grumpy
-confusing in thinking and lack of focus and learning
-keeping away from friends
The points above are common signs of mental illness that I need to be aware.
Do not hesitate to find help, do not afraid to consult a doctor.
Even I have some points above, I take control of myself. I find something fun! Such as:
- taking photos
- reading favorite books
- listening to the old school music
- chatting with friends
- shopping small things
- cooking simple foods
The most important is: posting my thought in my blog then enjoying every single comment from you all, my friends.
I really appreciate for your visiting and commenting.
They are such medicines to me to keep healthy and away from mental illness. Thank you so much!
