‘Mental’ is a word that we use often in NZ, the Aussies use it too.
I have never heard any other nationality say it though?
I know that some people perceive it as being rude or offensive..but its not meant to be.
I like mental or nutty or something along those lines, mental illness is too serious sounding for me .
I am not trying to take the piss on a very serious subject but if you can’t laugh at yourself then there is major problems…
and since most of us with mental illness have major problems or difficulty laughing , we have to make the most of when we can laugh!!
And who better than to make light of such a serious topic than one who suffers from it?
Self termed or Diagnosed…whatever….
depressive, bi polar, schizoid, maniac depressive, phobic , obsessive and the list goes on…
They are really funny and they lift your day and make you feel better.
Check them out….
But I have wandered far , far, far off course today….
The main reason I started with mental was to tell you to go see the movie,”Mental”.
I mentioned it last week.
It’s great, so see it. A good laugh and makes you wonder WHO the mental one is???
Rebecca Gibney is in it, and she must have put on about 2-3 stone for the part as she is a small lady normally….
” The Hills are alive with the sound of …….”
That is all I will say…It is great and it will cheer up you now end.
Toni Collette is so good, I am going to watch Muriel’s wedding again:)
Get your carcass down to the movie theatre now!!
My last thought for today was…..
I am sure that when i was smoking, drinking, coffee swilling, partying person that i was much happier.
Was this because I was washing all my moodiness away with smoking and drinking etc?
I am not talking about self medicating, as I never did it really, well maybe to some small point…
I often wonder this, I feel up tight and agitated compared when I would have a smoke or a drinkie if I was tense…
YOU KNOW WHAT I NEED…….A BLOODY RUN…
Tomorrow, I promise with red roses on top…
Run, lazy bum, run:)
