Struggling with Mental Health Doesn’t Make You Less of a Christian

I don’t know about you but the shame that circulates mental illness breaks my heart.

“What do you mean by mental illness?”, some ask me.

As I explained in a previous post about depression,

Whether it be depression, anxiety, PTSD, personality or mood disorders, etc, mental illness is very much like a physical illness. Many people have a hard time coming to grips with mental health because the mind is less tangible.

This is also the reason why many people don’t get help or isolate their issues until they’re too distressed to pull themselves out. There are no scars or bleeding to show proof that something is wrong. Instead it may look like a dysfunction in mental processing. However, it’s all a common health issue just the same.

Just like a cold or virus, some mental illnesses happen for an episode, are treated and then never come back or rarely show up again.

Some mental illnesses are more chronic and ongoing, which is more complex to cure and has long-term, serious effects but still has the potential to be treated and managed over time. FULL POST

How a Lethal Drug Overdose Put a Father’s Parenting Skills in Question

In today’s world, drug use and abuse is one of the biggest problems in the United States. According to the CDC, between 2002-2013 the use of heroin increased over 63 percent, and as recently as 2013 8,200 people died from heroin-related overdoses. Unfortunately, this problem only appears to be getting worse, with little end in sight. Needless to say, when an overdose occurs it is difficult for friends and loved ones to accept what has happened. This is especially true with families of overdose victims, who may find themselves struggling with how to cope with the tragedy, particularly when children are involved. For one father whose wife recently died from an overdose, he took the unusual step of using social media to inform his eight year-old son of what happened. With a goal of helping parents see the suffering loved ones endure when an addict fails to get help, the results were mixed. While some people viewed his actions as exploiting his child’s grief, others thanked him for his efforts by sending thousands of letters of support, stating his decision gave them the courage to seek help. While his parenting skills have been called into question, it has resulted in an important discussion surfacing. Is it better to shield a child from public view during difficult times, or is it better for a parent to take a stand in order to prevent future tragedies? FULL POST

But, sometimes, the body may be rendered unable to produce sufficient growth hormones on its own and when this happens, it may be time to consider growth hormone therapy. Modern growth hormone therapy involves the introduction of artificial growth hormones into the body.
