Hello Dear Readers..
It is Monday once again.
Sorry didn’t mean to rub it in.
I have been having a mental moment that just won’t quit. And the state of my mental is..questionable.
But I have neglected sharing with you all these little tidbits and moments and attitude adjustments. 🙂
The little moment break we take during the day to be mental.
And I missed it.
Ok, well apparently I am rambling so let’s get on with today’s…
(every time I write it that way I hear that part of Finding Nemo ..the Ring of Fire..! ) Call me crazy.. no wait, don’t
That is what today’s Mental Moment is about.
No.. not the Ring of Fire
or me being crazy. Kinda
OK maybe it kinda is but we have one more week left of Mental Health Awareness Month.
NO matter how I feel about the terminology and stuff.. it is supposed to be bringing awareness to Mental
Health I mean..it’s really about Mental Illness and understanding it and stopping the stigma.
Stigma SUCKS! It does. And it is hurtful and unnecessary. So let’s try to stomp it out shall we?
It would make our world a better place… it would make my world.. kinder.
To your Mental State, Whatever it May Be…
Lizzie Cracked (never broken..just appearing that way sometimes. It’s ok though cause remember? I am rubber.. I bounce back.

Another outstanding mental moment, Lizzie!
One month is not enough.
Gonna have to find a higher mountaintop to shout this from….
Thanks 🙂 Do they make them that high?
Well, we’ll just keep moving the biggest mountain we can find til everyone gets to hear it.
we can DO that? move mountains? way cool! ok.. sounds like a plan..
And it burns burns burns, that ring of fire. That ring of fire.
There’s that Ring of Fire too.. true..and don;t forget the ring of fire in childbirth.. yea.. wanna talk about ..ok never mind.
Um, so I was unable to read your last sentence. As soon as I saw “I am rubber…” my brain re-wrote it to be – I’m the rubber you’re the glue whatever you say bounces off of me and sticks to you. So, I guess that’s where my mental is for the moment.
that;s actually where it came from ..I talk about it a lot and say when I get zinged or something that I am going to put on my rubber body suit that I half rock and make you glue 🙂 ..well not you..personally .. 😉
I think it came from My Mean Streak and the Sarcastic Retort? …which is just a higher level of I am rubber you are glue… (no..not you..)
I love you Lizzie. Us nut-cases have to stick together. 😉
absolutely!!! ❤ Love you too!
This is awesome Lizzie- when you are ready, me thinks it’s getting closer for a certain ‘side project’ to launch. What say you about that?
I miss your shiny and perfect face!
yes ..I was just thinking about that very thing today..
and I miss you too! #withsprinkles! #mostshiniestever 🙂
You don’t know me (yet) I hold your written honesty as words of “Truth” U write well. I am in the same field of Life… as it were and is. alabama says hey…
hey! 🙂 thanks
Stigma is attached sometimes due to the ignorance or arrogance of the healthy. I was once told “You can’t understand depression unless you’ve been depressed” Keep going 🙂
I shall now that I am here.. Isnlt it just a matter of empathy? caring.. forgive me…,I am a little muddled in the brain I may have missed your point… if so please do clarify.. or whatever pther action might need to be taken.. thanks -)
I am sorry I didn’t get here till today, was having my own moment. You always hit these truths head on, sigma indeed sucks.
no worries. I just got here today too… dept I think you got here before me..well after but then I didn’t get here.. sigh.. better late than never and your not late and I appreciAte you are here.. 🙂 hope your mental is better and not still in that moment.. that you were havimg before you got here.
Hey that video was sad 😦 the girl talking at the end sounded like me 🙂
she did kinda huh.. it was sad. but very educational. ..
Lizzie, I miss seeing you around. I love you and I hope you are doing okay. If you want a late night chat, let me know and we can have a non-sleep over. 😉
This is such a powerful video! A great mental moment for all of us. To stop and think about what we can do to help raise awareness . . . LIzzie you are making a difference my wonderful Cyber Daughter!!! 😀
thanks Mom…bbff 🙂 . I don’t feel like I am.. I mean..i know I could but I’ve been.. gone for a bit. ❤
I know it hasn’t been two weeks, but I think you need to check in anyway Lizzie.
I’m paranoid like that. I hope you haven’t been kidnapped. If you have been, how could they not let you blog? How heartless, and you thought I was evil…
how long has it been? um..I forgot my code words… I think they brainwashed me..
It’s been too long. I need to go look at the codewords too. 😉 are you okay though?
um yea.. that’s weird ..maybe I did get kidnapped by aliens..
Lizzie? I love you. Thought you should know.
thanks Hobbsy.:-) I love you too., sorry my computer frozen up and I’m typing from my phone. I just had the weirdest feeling for real. like I don’t remember how I got here..
Scary…how long do you feel like you were away?
I dunno for a minute I didn’t feel like I was away at all.. it was like a deja vu or something. it’s been awhile tho huh?,,..
Yes. I’ll go find the most recent comment…but what is going on?
nothing. I got depressed. but I don’t remember if I tripped and fell or saw it coming. I couldn’t shake it tho. but I feel .. it was weird like up until that moment I remembered it all.. and then,poof.. wow.. I might be crazy.. shhh. don’t tell
You are not crazy. It happens. How have you been sleeping?
a lot but not well.. have you been sleeping?
Normal, stay up till 2-4 then I wish I could sleep in. Today is the first day of summer vacation for the kids and we all slept in this morning.
wow so early? oh wait mine are off on wednesday next week.. but they go back in July
Wow, that’s early for them to go back! Are you ready for summer break, or not so much
dunno..they go to their dads all summer
Ohhhh. Hmm, I understand why you aren’t sure how you feel.
its too hot here anyuways..they woud just sit in the air conditioning and watch cartoons and nmake a mess and want to go swimming all the time ….
Yeah, it will be good for them.
i know they get to play outside in the woods… they had a blast last year.. so it will be ok..
dunno..they go to their dads all summeri. they get 2 weeks off in the fall…its cooler here
Hmm, well maybe it would give you a chance to get some alone time in.
I did say that twice… whats up with the new notification thingy?
are you here?
Sorry Lizzie. I had to go do stupid “real” stuff. Sorry it took so long and my phone was charging. Do your think the depression is lifting?
it.. feels like it. course I thought that two days ago and I was really super mad.. then I felt better for a bit .. then I felt worse… but I’m not all over the place… just ..like waking up..
Lilly, I have to type fast this is the third try to reply. They get deleted if anyone else. Read the mental posts on my blog. They will make you smile.
ok..im confused but Im gonna go look 🙂
I’ll be right back
Hey Lizzie, just thinking about you…miss you.
Been having my own mental moments of late, and yes stigma sucks. Let’s bring it out of the closet 🙂
Me too.. nice to see you Kate 🙂 Ok let’s do it… 🙂
I circled back to this one because I really wanted to share the video…again.
Love ya, cherie,
It is a well done video – I looked at quite a few. Many of them made it too much like it was about being PC. Hope you are feeling better.. I am going to tackle my inbox toni..no soon..sigh Love back 🙂
