Line Of Sanity-PLEASE SHARE

Posted by Bruce - in Blog - No Comments

There often appears to be a thin line between insanity and sanity especially to those who are suffering from mental health conditions. This is because those that are sick truly don’t understand what is occurring in their head.  It might seem odd to those that do not have these health issues but ask yourself when did it occur to you that your eye site or hearing got worse. Now add to that the tendency of denial due to the stigma of society and how triggers can make a person feel as if they have a sane reason to act the way they do and you can understand how this line can be blurred.  Here below are some that this line can be more easily seen and hopefully help those that might be suffering.

 

  • Withdrawing from social activities, or other activities that he or she used to enjoy
  • Losing the ability to handle day-to-day responsibilities
  • Expressing strange thoughts or delusional, exaggerated beliefs
  • Excessive nervousness or worry
  • Dramatic shifts in sleeping habits and appetite
  • Sudden and dramatic changes in mood (highs and lows)
  • Bizarre behavior
  • Apathy
  • Problems with memory, concentration, and attention
  • Depression
  • Extreme Anger

LINE 1

My line was drawn and I was ready to become another yet at the last minute a higher lined pulled me away.  I had seen with my own eyes what path I was headed to and was abruptly pulled away by a higher force. It was if my mind was going in one direction and my soul was pulling me in another.  While others wanted me to join the party G-D had a bigger invitation for me somewhere else. Sometimes I wonder if I couldn’t have just passed that line for one time and still come back but after seeing “my friends” I’m glad I never did.
