A Recipe for Bad Mental Health

The last couple of days have not been great. The one good thing about the daily “What’s on TV” posts is that it gives me one thing to post that takes little thought. It was hard to get motivated to write anything else today, but I thought it would be better for me if I did. So, here is the recipe for the place I am right now.

Take one person with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem.

Add in a dash of social isolation and loneliness.

Mix in a severe lack of decent sleep.

Add a big heaping serving of gaslighting and deception.

Enhance the low self-esteem with a dash of minimizing accomplishments.

Add in a big heaping serving of making them feel worthless.

Add in a dash of a toxic relationship with “productivity” and looking busy.

Add a dash of self-destructive thoughts.

Let it simmer for eternity.

  1. If you’d like to talk, send me a PM on FB. We can figure out a way via email or phone if you want (my cell service is spotty sometimes and I don’t have a landline though). I don’t like that gaslighting and deception ingredient especially. And if someone else is contributing some of these ingredients, they need to STFU.

  2. I don’t like this recipe. Let me know if there is any way I can assist to change or nix some of those yucky ingredients. I know you aren’t a hugger, but here are some virtual **hugs** for you.

  3. That’s not a good list. The last two years have taken a toll on many of us. Social isolation and uncertainty of our future’s are the main demons. Don’t feel as if you have to write a post everyday. That puts you in a pressure situation, and to me, that’s not what blogging is for. I don’t write everyday on my blog, and it’s been over a week since I posted anything. Your TV reviews are good and I enjoy them, as well as your spins on everyday life. Running a blog is akin to FB or any of the other social media apps. Sometimes you need to step away for a few days and decompress. Good luck and I do hope you feel better. Best Wishes.
