10 Things That Are Sexy to Me as Someone With Anxiety | The Mighty
I have been told by several docs that my belly fat was stress related, hmm🧐
There are different reasons to this answer this question, but the two major reasons are described below:
- Lack of knowledge and misunderstanding
There is great misunderstanding about mental health in the African-American population. It is due to lack of knowledge as many people think that the mental health consultation is a sign of weakness and they feel ashamed for seeking help. Some even believe it’s a punishment from God and thus consider not seeking help from a doctor, but a church. Most in our community think we can just ‘pray’ it away. As a result, their conditions tend to worsen over time. This then ruins relationships, work life, and their life in general. To avoid this, we have to make sure all of our peers seek the information they need.
According to recent research, one-quarter of African-Americans seek mental health care and are usually misdiagnosis. Usually most doctors in our community don’t take our symptoms serious, we are told to go home and in my case, I was told to pray about it. I was also told that black people don’t need those drugs in our system. How foolish? This has a negative influence on our lives and leads us to distrust the professional healthcare system and workers. Most of us just couldn’t care less to seek the help, because we are constantly misdiagnosis.
Thus through proper knowledge, eliminating the negative stereotypes, and constant conversations we can reduce fewer suicides. It is our duty in the African-American community to guide our love ones when we see them suffering.
Reciting these affirmations every morning has been a big factor in how I go about my day. Yesterday I was feeling overwhelmed, trying to get so much done in such a short time. At some point I just drop what I was doing and took a brief nap, woke up refreshed and recharged. I remembered my affirmations I had set for myself that day. They indeed do strengthen us by making us believe we have the power to conquer anything at that moment. So print off these or create your own, you become what you think. Why not think you’re the greatest!!!?

The Art of Waiting
This shit is getting out of hand, children are being killed left and right. There is no excuse for a parent to send their kid to school to be gunned down. I’m not trying to take away your guns, but at what point do we have some damn laws. How is it fair for the head of the NRA kids to grow up, but not ours! No amount of money should keep you from voting on principle. Now every one of these kids and their parents will suffer from PTSD, and the way our stupid ass insurance system set up they won’t get the help they need. I’m so hurt and pissed off, and the orange bandit in office sits back and looks at the tv in awe! His grandkids will grow up! Again I don’t want to take your guns, but there’s no excuse for any fool on the damn street to get one. My heart breaks for these people.
