Fighting the Good fight is about battling depression. Millions of people are involved with this fight and there many more people that are engaged in this battle without even knowing that they are.
The people that are fully aware that they are battling depression have gotten plenty of time to get used to the rollercoaster of negative emotions that this condition can bring. The days gone by without sleeping. The feeling that happiness is not acheivable but that anger and sadness are never ending. The potential for drug abuse which is either the reason for the depression in the first place or or the by product of trying to combat depression. The missed days from work that may lead to being fired because the motivation to go to work is crushed by depression. The seemingly endless physical ailments that seem to lead to even more physical ailments brought on by depression. The carnage and wake of broken and damaged personal relationships that suffered because depression would not allow any healthy relationships with anyone to exist. Can't forget about the suicidal tendencies and fantasies that may exist because the desire to end the pain just seems so logical.
People who don't know that they are involved in this battle may be experiencing these symptoms and many other symptoms as well but think that just one thing can fix this condition. Maybe some more money. Maybe if your love comes back to you. Maybe if your loved one was still alive. Unfortunately their is no quick fix. The war goes on until many battles are won but the war can be won.
Many things can be used to fight and beat depression.
Diet. Yes what you eat can bring on depression or fight it.
Exercise. Sweating it out helps
Medication. Sometimes it's the 1st option people choose but it doesn't have to be.
Support Groups. Others have suffered and won and so can you.
Therapy. That's why we are here to help.
Do I really need to even explain or give details about what this show is gonna be about?
Let's find out what we understand about the fears that people have about these three things that can have such a great impact on our health and our existence and our apprearance.
By the way, did you know that your mental state can have an effect on your appearance too? You probably did but I'm just saying.
This show should be easy and hard at the same time.
Terryl Ebony, Parent Life Coach and Author is the Founder and Director of Misunderstood Youth Development Center in based in N.Y. She is also the Author of Losing Love, having Faith and Finding Hope. Terryl's life's work centers around trying to ensure that parents and children are on the right track to functionality. She understands that in every family there will issues related to the growth and maturity of our young people but she also understands that those issues don't have to cripple us. They don't have to separate us and they don't have to put us in a position where we lose love, faith and support for one another as far as family goes. She understands that if the parent is educated better in the ways of schooling, positive interaction, values and upward mobility that they will pass that onto their children.
It's hard to dispute that when children display behavioral problems in school as well as in the streets that there are usually some issues going on at home that need to be addressed. Terryl Ebony helps these parents to be able to combat these issues with their children so that family services can be avoided. So that the blame game can be avoided. So that incarceration can be avoided. So that funeral services can be avoided for our youth. She has done this for years and is well respected and revered in the state of New York as well as nationally and she will be coming on the show this Wed. to bless us with some good conversation, some good parenting advice and to kick it with us. She may possibly drop a poem or 2 as well. Who knows?
It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.
How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?
Let's get right into this.
Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?
Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?
Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?
Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?
Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?
What are your feelings about rehabilitation?
Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?
Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?
Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?
What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?
Way too often we look at human trafficking as something that only happens to people from countries outside of America. We've seen some of the headlines about some Asian, European or Latino woman being kidnapped from their home involuntarily and sold or forced into prostitution but it goes much deeper than that.
Says Jaye of The Jaye Today Show :
Trafficking is every where. If you buy it may be in your closet. Sometimes we call the victims prostitutes. Many of them go to school with your children. God forbid if it is your child. Trafficking is not just sex; there is a growing demand for organ harvesting. Yes they are cutting up children for parts to be used for transplants for people who can pay top dollar and don't want to be placed on a waiting list. You may think that this is not your problem, until your child comes up missing. This could explain a lot about some of our youth who come up missing and are never found.
This is a very real and serious issue that hits closer to home than most of us give it credit for.
Listen to this show and let Jaye break it down for you and explain how www.covertangels.com is working to put an end to these horrors.

Joi will be performing a few of her pieces so be ready to be interested and entertained
You definitely want to tune in for this one and tell some friends to do the same because this is gonna be hot!
Call it a sign of the times or call it a form of expression or sometimes call it fruity or even ugly. Whatever you might call it, it's going on today whether you see it on t.v., at a concert or on the street and more than likely you won't be able to keep from staring or making sure you protect yourself.
Here's what we're going to be covering this week on Urban Therapy with Sun.
Young people tatooing their faces.
Male rappers wearing skirts
Women with kids who switch from being straight to being bisexual
The knockout game
Social Media Meets and Greets
Dressing half neckett at events
Taping fights fights and posting to YouTube and World Star Hip Hop
How have camera phones and social media affected all of these things? Would people be as passionate about the named fads and others if the cameras weren't rolling and the pictures weren't gonna be posted?
Is all of this stuff new or has some of it just been remixed?
Let's take a hard look at this stuff and let's try to figure some of it out.
Last year we had Chippy on the show to talk about the release of her forthcoming book From Torment to Triumph. It's been a full year since then so we thought we would bring her back on to see how the book has been received, how she has been doing and to talk about Love's Obituary the one woman play that has spawned from the book which is being performed live now by Chippy. Plus we're gonna kick it with her and talk about everything else that's going on in the world.
This is gonna be hot so make sure that you tune in and pay attention.
We all make chaanges in our lives. Some changes are big and some of them are small compared to others but there comes a time when we are growing that we can't do the same things that we used to do. It can take us awhile to get to the point where we see that we really need to make that change. We may try and fail a few times before we finally get it right, but once it's done it's done.
Whenever you stop smoking or drinking or doing drugs or womanizing or prostituting or lying or cheating or even doing something positive like attending church or participating in community events or charity, people sometimes have a tough time adjusting to the changes that you've made to youself and may have a hard time accepting the new you. Some may test you to see if you've really changed. Good or bad they may miss some of the crazy and funny things you used to do when you were who and what you used to be. They may miss the old you. You may miss the old you too.
For example if you're a woman that didn't used to get caught up emotionally with men but used to receive gifts and money for men but has since changed and is now getting closer to God and is seeking more meaningful and monogamous relationships, it can be devestating to have to put up with a bunch of b.s. from your man who is not putting out financially the way you used to have it. Same b.s. but less benefits. Less benefits other than doing the right thing anyway. Things like this can cause a person to revert back to their old ways if they are not strong and have folks around them to reinforce staying positive.
Here are some examples to consider:
The money getting drug dealer
The money getting drug dealers girlfriend
Changing from a job that pays daily like being a barber or hairdresser to a job that pays bi-weekly for less pay but better benefits like health and retirement.
There's much more to this. Just think about it.
Do you think that you could ever marry someone again that you were divorced from? Do you think it could or would work the second time around? Do you know people who have done this?
As much as people try to stay together for the sake of the children that they have together, do you think that it's possible to get back together with someone after the two of you have been apart for years and possibly have had children with other people?
With all of the socila networking available that is allowing people to reconnect with people they have been out of touch with for years and sometimes decades do you you think that it's possible to successfully find love with someone that you had a relationship with or had a crush on in high school?
How much do you think that maturity plays into these scenarios? Can any of these second chance scenarios work? Do you know of any? Have you been a part of any? Is it worth trying out? Come talk it out with sun and Ms. Dot and let's see what we can figure out.
This is the first of what will be many health and wellness shows that will be featured on Urban Therapy With Sun this year. Last year we played around with some fitness tips. I held back a lot of stuff because I didn't think that many of you were ready to handle the wealth of extremely easy and cost effective methods that this movement promotes. I've become ready to give more and I believe that you will be ready to receive more.
As many of you who have followed this show for years know, we believe in the easy way in and the easy way out. We believe in the cheapest way to get in and the most cost effective way to maintain.
We're talking about your physical health. There's no good reason that you should have to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to lose weight, gain muscle, reduce fat and improve your overall health. Most, if not all the tips that will be offered on this show will show you how to do things for free or how to pay very little just one time. Urban Therapy believes in saving you money and saving your sanity.....and saving your life. We GUARANTEE that these tips WILL WORK. GUARANTEE. Many of the solutions have been tested by me and others and we're giving them away for nothing. Why? Because that's what we do.Many of the methods featured on this show will be things that you've been meaning to do but haven't gotten around to. Things that you used to do but stopped for whatever reason and things you've heard good things about but have not tried yet. We will also explain why what you have been doing has not been working. We can show you how to get it back to working. Yeah, it's that serious.
If you want to get off to a good start in 2014, you need to check out this show and bring your loved ones to listen in as well. Your health and well being depends on it.
