This is a very personal subject for me. My sister suffered with Bipolar disorder and Schizophrenia for most of her life. My family and I recognized her struggles when she was in junior high school. Her mood swings were severe and she was almost impossible to relate to or communicate with in a rational way. I became very distanced from her. I was the bubbly, outgoing type and I just couldn’t understand her depression and sadness. And sometimes she could be very mean, and that shook me because she was really a very kind person at heart. During this time it never occurred to my parents to take her to a doctor for a diagnosis of a mental illness. They just thought it was a phase and she’d outgrow it. Things escalated in her high school years and finally, when she was a senior, she was diagnosed with the 2 mental illnesses I spoke of above. Problem was, she was 18 and she wouldn’t go on the medication. She was sure it would harm her. So she spent her life in and out of depression and unfathomable agony. Her life seemed joyless and this affected me greatly. This story ends sadly; last year my sister passed away. Her paranoia kept her from ever going to a doctor and her body just wore itself out from untold sickness that was never diagnosed. – I have so much knowledge now about Essential Oils and how many ways they can heal our bodies and minds. It’s a true shame that I was never able to reach her with all of this. I can, however, tell you about some oils that can work alongside medications to help with people’s symptoms http://www.buyessentialoilshere.com/more-success-stories/bipolar-disorder-and-essential-oils/

In January of 2011, I tried to kill myself. Healing from that Major Depression episode has been long and complex, yet since that day I have had two books published sharing my story. In recovery, I have led a growing number of seminars and workshops honestly discussing mental illness and how to be an effective support. I confront stigma and misunderstanding head-on.
I am a woman with intensive and revealing insight into a massive, world-wide issue - depression, and its effects on significant others. Depression is the number one commonality of all human suffering yet generally people are ill-equipped to face it. Even the suicide of Robin Williams has brought public confusion to the spotlight.
I am an expert on what it is like in the mind of a majorly depressed and suicidal person and what is working for me to gain and maintain a mindset of hope. The ideas I share are practical and are part of what is statistically successful as treatment. I can also share applicable ideas on how to support struggling friends and family members without becoming overwhelmed.

ISLAMAPHOBIA. Yes were all paranoid, we are putting all of them in a box and its not fair. Well fairness is the idea that if your faith is so peaceful why do you not react and stop the beheadings or condemn the radicals with full voice world wide? MUslims will not rest while these terrorist groups reveal they serve the same God and no other strong response is seldom given.
So we will dig into the stigma attached to this religion and unveil the hidden secrets of this religion. I personally feel this subject does not get enough attention, the overall look at the current growth of this religion is based on the idea you are born into it, so we see the actual population may be much smaller overall. A Fatwah is always the response when you either write a book about its negative ideas, or even talk out loud like we will. WTF you scared of a group that kills fellow christians? Welcome to WTF Radio.
