Mental Health: The Universe Knows You and Loves You
A couple of years ago, Archer and I visited friends in New Mexico. On a quick trip from Albuquerque to Santa Fe, we stopped to walk across this bridge that had such an incredible view. However, there were reminders everywhere that tragedy befalls this landmark often. Since May is Mental Health Awareness Month, I thought talking about this picture was important.
There are 121 suicides in America per day. It was hard to think that in this beautiful place, people would choose to end their lives.
I was amazed to see that there were several call boxes for those considering their end to talk to someone immediately.
If you or someone you know is suicidal, please reach out to the organization listed below. Every life matters. “The Universe Knows You and Loves You.”
My dad gets ocular or retinal migraine attacks. He gets a visual aura that lasts 15-20 minutes and then he doesn’t get the head pain. Oddly, his attacks started after I became chronic.
I’m so thrilled to share a third work of art by Lisa Benson, artist and writer for Migraine.com. Lisa says of this piece:
I took this video a few days after coming home from 6 days in the hospital. I’ve had a really hard time recovering although the ketamine treatment tends to decrease the frequency and intensity of my migraine attacks. Sometimes you just gotta cry it out.
