FUNCTIONS  10X8"  1995

When you have a mental illness the first things that must be addressed are four functions. They are eating, drinking (hydration), sleeping, and shitting (bowel movement). Stopping any one of these will result in hospitalization or death. This was a note to remind myself not to overlook the obvious. With depression, neglect of basic care and loss of perspective are common. Many lifelines available to me were, family and friends, therapy, art, reading and writing. Here are a few authors that helped me cope. Smile and live well.

    Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with? I'm planning to start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Having read this I thought it was very informative. I appreciate you taking the time and energy to put this content together. I once again find myself personally spending way too much time both reading and commenting. But so what, it was still worth it!

    Do you have a spam problem on this site; I also am a blogger, and I was curious about your situation; many of us have developed some nice procedures and we are looking to exchange techniques with other folks, why not shoot me an email if interested.
