I had a run in with a colleague at work today. I'd told her last week about my diagnosis as I thought she'd understand as she had suffered with depression in the past. Boy was I wrong!! The office got into a general conversation about depression. She announced that depression is a state of mind and it's got nothing to do with chemicals in the brain. She then turned on me and said that I don't need my bipolar meds because if I just started thinking positively I would be fine! So guys chuck out your meds, repeat to yourself 'positive mental attitude' and you'll be cured!!!! Brilliant isn't it???

Colombian women are pretty loud. I’m sort of afraid of them and I don’t know what to do because my brother’s fiancee is from Colombia. Their wedding is in a couple of months and I’m scared to interact with her family. They’re not particularly friendly tbh. The men are pretty laid back but the women are so strict and loud. Do you guys have any suggestions on how I can present or interact...
My grandmother found my daddy passed away last week. I made it there before the funeral home. I'm a nurse and have dealt with death a million times. I even dealt with my mothers death.

He was diabetic and his blood sugar bottomed out and nobody found him... which he had already...
