As Salam alikum readers
I got a juicer yesterday and started using it below is a juicing recipe I really like
2 stalks celery
1 piece of ginger about half inch long
3 handfuls of spinach and kale mix I used the baby kind
6 medium apples
Wash everything then slice apples and zucchini
Run through juicer add small amounts spinach and kale then apples , ginger , celery use the pusher to safely get everything juiced, once finished stir and then pour over ice and enjoy makes about 4 big glasses full.
Side note I place a bag over the end that catches the discarded pulp and skins from juicing easy clean up.
Should You Have Kids If You’re Depressed?“Were you frightened to have children with your history of suicidal depression?” a young woman asked me the other day. “Did you have to stop medication while you were pregnant?” In the last ten years writing about mental health issues, these two questions keep surfacing, especially among young women who dream of pushing a baby…
Depression, Not Medication, Kills Creativity“My favorite escapes from depression are meds and writing,” says Diana Spechler in a New York Times opinion piece. “But I can’t do both at once.” Friends have been forwarding to me her columns in the “Going Off” series, which chronicles her attempt to wean off the medications she takes for depression, anxiety, and insomnia.…
I dislike it when people say oh you’ll be depressed where ever you live , well that might be true because I have a mood disorder my brain is wired differently just because I get upset about a issue doesn’t mean it’s my mood I can be upset and feel without it affecting my current mood .
Belittling how I feel at the moment doesn’t help me it just frustrates and annoys me.
Telling me I can’t do something because I have bipolar or depression or whatever label you want to call it isn’t fair to me as a person
Would you tell a person with a medical problem to stick it out without treatment? Or that living somewhere that makes them truly unhappy is healthy for them?
I dislike having bipolar it is hard and exhausting , you never know when your mood will change sometimes it changes for no reason at all. Other times there are indicators that your mood is changing sometimes you never even see it at all.
The bored can make you feel more depressed nobody understands this like I do.
Unfortunately, depression never goes away
Sometimes it seems toget better but other times it rears its cruel despair and drags you down into those dark, foggy distance with all the pain and despair crept into my dreams then engulfed me again.
I can’t help that I suffer through years of it most people in my life belittle and mock me because of depression like it is my fault, I thought educating them would help them understand but all they do is ignore me and disregard what I say and how I feel.
Do my feelings and wishes and plans not even matter?
What is the point of it all?
I suffer in silnce now noone cares
I spend my nights silently crying till I cant cry anymore
I spend my days just trying to not cry in front of anyone
I paste on a mask of stoicism slipped from time to time.
I struggle daily in my faith I am not sure why?
I am struggling but I am
Some days I find it very hard to get up and do my prayers why?
My limbs are heavy with fatigue
My bones ache
At night I don’t sleep, I just toss and turn cryings quietly into my pillow
My soul aches and I can’t seem to stop the pain
All I can do is say Bismillah
Wait for the pain to pass
I would never wish this pain on anyone it is quietly wrenching it is soul sucking
Why Allah Do I have this struggle and fight for everything?
I didn’t grow up in a house, I grew up moving around in a bus ,
When I was a kid I never ask what time it was when I woke up I was asked where are we ?
I have lived in 48 states , some states are friendlier than other states.
The bus we lived in was retrofitted with a stove, fridge ,kitchen table ,counter ,beds and the toilet, as well as storage places for clothes and other things ! Each thing had its had its own place.
We could set up or breakdown camp in under 10 minutes.
Below is a picture of two of the buses we lived in.
One has built has bedrooms built on top and the other is newly acquired.
Why do you pray not pray?
Do you desire to go astray?
Why do you disobey and refused to pray?
What in this life do you have?
Nothing is here to stay!
The only way to find peace to pray!
Do not be lost and lonely like stray,
Pray for strength
Pray for peace
Pray five times a day
It’s the only way to find the path
And stay on the straight way
Pray when in doubt
Pray went in trouble
Pray when not in trouble
When worried, in sickness and in health
one must always pray
It is the only way to keep the demons and devils at bay
Just pray night or day
