INTRODUCTION

I wonder what my life would be like if I had a normal mind. It’s a question I often ponder. I also think without my “Chum” I wouldn’t have the life experiences that make me, me. I say all this because I was recently asked how I want to be remembered. It’s a question that I can’t readily offer up an answer other than the feeling of sorrow. Hello all your rockers and rollers of words today blog post is inspired by the question of all questions how I want to be remembered

ARE MISTAKES FAILURES?

Introduction

What is a mistake? What is failure? Are the two connected? We all make mistakes or have experienced failure. It could be something small as work related or something on the grandeur side like family related or something we’re passionate about.  Most of us chalk the experience up to lessons learned moving us forward in life a bit wiser.  Then there are the few who struggle with mistakes.  Looking at these mistakes as failing.  It’s that failure that some of see as a lack of ability to be creative, be intelligent, having smarts or talent.  Is fear of failure the new mental block we need to overcome?  Let’s explore.

ANOTHER MASS SHOOTING It’s Time For Gun Control!

Original Post Date: August 6, 2019

Hello all you masters and mistress of words, here we are again on the mass shooting merry-go-round. This time America got a triple. Two mass shootings within hours of each other and a week from the Gilroy Garlic Festival shooting. I’m not going to give a lecture on the importance of gun control because if you read this blog, you’ll see that this debate has been going since the 1966 starting with the shooting at University of Texas.

SURVIVING THE CHAOS, Warning Signs of Bipolar Depression

Original Post Date: May 7, 2019

INTRODUCTION

Hello all you masters of words, today I’m feeling a bit down and under the weather.  This week has been very tough in fact, this month has been very tough.  I feel like my words aren’t being heard and I’m falling deeper into my depression.  I put on a brave face, its all an act.  Whenever someone ask how I am doing my generic response is “I’m doing just fine” clearly not true. I should get the Academy Award for best fake-smile. I’m far from being fine. I’m far from being normal, I mean what is normal?  The truth is I’m scared, I feel beat-up and I’m worn-out.  I am terrified of the things I can’t control.  I blogged about this before where there’s such anxiety of things that haven’t happened that I spend weeks trying to control. It’s like your on a train the deer on the track you see it but this little time to react. Just buckle up and hope for the best.  I’m so worn-out I been play at this game with a defeater’s attitude.  The constant fighting is wearing me down, trying to be everything to everyone.  Struggling is a term that is often used when describing an bipolar depression episode, however, I am beyond struggling I’m drowning. No rock I can crawl under will help hide the pain I am in.

THE HIGH CARD

The High Card

Hello all you wizards of words, it’s been a while since I blog. Well not true, I write everyday but a lot of my material doesn’t see the light of day. This thought, however, I been working on for a while now. I finally got the idea incoherent sentences because not everyone speaks Sunny Larue right. With this blog post I’m taking a different approach. Many of my ideas for a blog are inspired by my journal entry. When I tackled this reincarnation, I promised to be truthful in regards to my mental disorder or “Chum”. In fact, to be as brutally honest not matter how hard the topic is. Well what’s more honest then journal entries. I been holding back this side of my Chum. It’s very scary place the the dark side of my Chum. It’s a place of the unknown with little to no control. The links throughout this post are materials that helped me get through this episode.
This post is from my journal entry titled: “The High Card” May 30, 2019

Christmas is that time of year where everything feels nice and cozy. People tend to be in a better mood. Yes of course there’s those who are a drag & those who are crooks but for the most part Christmas brings out that inner playful kid in all of us. Beside the rush of tackling the Christmas shopping, black Friday & cyber Monday preparing Christmas dinner is on everyone minds. As I put together my Christmas dinner menu, I got to thinking if I could have the ultimate Christmas dinner who would I invite as dinner guests?

PRELUDE

Original schedule post date: March 5, 2020

I have come up with clever names to identify many faces of my bipolar disorder. I come to realize that having metal disorder is scary to some people. It doesn’t mean the person who is struggling is a bad person nor does it mean that people don’t care. It means having a disorder like bipolar is something that is unknown and misunderstood. I find that by giving my disorder a name makes the disease more human like therefore people are willing to listen and understand and not be so judgmental. When I wrote this blog post I was working at an office environment that was very unhealthy. These thoughts were written as a result of a lunch date. I felt I needed to be transparent and honest if I was to peruse a heathy relationship. I’m lucky to have a new friend who is compassionate and is interested in learning more about the struggles of mental health. De-army, defusing along with a little humor can prevent an uncomfortable situation.
