Do you know how many people in our country live in poverty?
What about the morbidly obese?
And the disabled, what about them?
What about Clinical Depression?
How many people kill themselves in one year?
What about addicts?
Unless we look for these numbers, we will not hear them on our daily news or in our papers unless they post it. Occasionally, someone will try to live on food stamps for one week or they try to eat one week of meals spending only $25.00. It will get brief news coverage. Then the headlines return to others new events and articles about living in poverty lose their exposure.
It isn’t enough.
I want to increase awareness showing what life is like battling mental and physical illness daily. I am 61 years old; I am morbidly obese, disabled, in poverty, am a recovering alcoholic, dealing with Clinical Depression, Complex PTSD and a bunch of other health problems.
Every day of my life, I try my best to deal with those issues that began in child abuse. Some days are better than others are.
I know that I am not alone.
Maybe I can connect with others like me.
Maybe my postings help someone better understand someone they know who has similar problems.
Maybe you have answers you can share.
Maybe we will find solutions.
I believe anything is possible.
