Make Amends - Day 69/ #100DaysofMentalHealth

Probably one of my most challenging things yet

Hey hey beautiful people,

We are moving on with the #100DaysofMentalHealth challenge and this sticker bears what was my challenge during my Washington DC trip. I am still working on it but would like to report that in my attempt to make amends, I have successfully dealt with some things and miserably failed in others. 

So for this challenge, we are looking at the things(and people) we need to make amends for (with). This process of making amends requires grace, wisdom and a truckload of courage. It also requires a lot of soul searching for some of the things and monitoring your energy through the process, asking yourself why and being totally sincere even when the answer isn't pretty (and then there are some things that are more direct and don't need any digging - stop delaying the process)

Tweetchat PlayBack - #Depression 101

Power of the tweetchats, got this text after one of the sessions, people going for help
Good evening beautiful people,

Today is meant to be tweetchat Tuesday but we will have it tomorrow instead. In our last #mymindmyfunk tweetchat, we discussed depression (apologies I had to prepare for my Washington DC trip and didn’t have time to put the notes up, so here they are). 

Special S/O to everyone who uses those chats as a source of information and inspiration to seek help. If there are any topics you would like me to cover and any guests you would like me to host, kindly comment on this post or use the tab on the side.Tomorrow we will be discussing the language of mental health.

Inspired by the recent Mathari Hospital break out and some ridiculous statements online

Chronicles from Washington DC; Speaking at Howard Theatre, Discovering DC Cafe and other DC stories

Good morning beautiful people,

I had an amazing time in Washington DC this last week despite my seizures making their international debut, I am still taking in this relapse and its aftermath but soldering on none the less. I was in DC for The MOTH event which saw me and a group of amazing development experts share our journeys. The gig was at the legendary Howard Theatre  and i shared about my life with epilepsy, dropping out of Actuarial School, getting fired from a job (the last job i ever worked) and starting my mind, my funk...see some of the twitter love for my talk below.
