I'm stressed, discouraged and feel really down today. But giving up is never an option.
Didn't want to turn this into a Thread, but couldn't resist. Each day I wake up is a fight for our country, causing extreme battles with depression. America is in chaos and I'll be the first black man to step up and admit, Donald Trump is ruining a huge part of my mental health.
The physiological effects of the Trump administration aren't good. A growing body of research has tracked the detrimental impacts of Trump-related stress on broad segments of the American population, from young adults to women, to racial and LGBT communities.

It's #BellLetsTalk and for so many who struggle with #mentalhealth concerns, this day raises awareness and builds a culture of #compassion. Let's never again hear someone say, “just snap out of it” or “it’s all in your head.” @Bell_LetsTalk
Each of us may have different levels of understanding when it comes to #mentalhealth. Mental health is neutral. It’s not bad or good. It’s not necessarily positive or negative. It just is. #BellLetsTalk
A tooth ache will put you in the dentist’s chair. The flu is a reason to see the doctor. There’s no shame. Seeking help for #mentalhealth support must also be a safe experience. There's simply no other choice when your mental health is cast in shadow. #BellLetsTalk #EndTheStigma

Borderline Personality Disorder aka Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder is one of the most misunderstood, stigmatised & complex mental health diagnoses (Thread) #BPD #EUPD
One could write pages relating to the condition BPD and a layman’s understanding would still be incomplete. For this reason I am going to try and keep it short, simple and concise as I can and explain to you what BPD is to me.
BPD is intense feelings of loneliness & an inability to sit with myself without resorting to poor coping behaviours #BPD #EUPD #MentalHealthAwareness

Let me explain a few things about this bullshit idea that people love of "if you need psych meds, you never get a gun."

I'm going to introduce you to being mentally ill, poor, and living in rural areas.
When I was growing up, there were significant portions of the time that if we didn't hunt, we didn't have enough meat. Hunting rifles were an important part of providing for the family. When Dad was at sea, I took over the job when I was old enough.
This was not uncommon. Farm families always have rifles and shotguns on hand because you fucking need them. You have to put down an animal and it's too expensive to call a vet. You need to shoot a fox or something that's in your chickens. This is normal.
