|Power of the tweetchats, got this text after one of the sessions, people going for help|
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|
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.
