A lot of people who end up in a mental institution did not mean to commit suicide. I was baker acted six times and each time I was told I was a danger to myself but I didn’t try to commit suicide. I was observant to the young women in the hospital who had their nails perfectly manicured and their hair done. One person told me she was distraught because her boyfriend was moving away without her and she woke up with her wrist slit. She hadn’t even realized she did that. And then there was one guy who kept popping pills to calm him self down from getting into a fight and then he later collapsed. And then there was one girl who overdosed on pills because she was unable to sleep and thought that taking more meds than prescribed would help her. When I lost my mind I was drinking wine and taking pills but something told me to keep drinking water and I did and I think that’s what saved me. I wonder how many celebrities like Marilyn Monroe died but really didn’t have the intention to commit suicide.
One of the medications that I take has a side effect of “death for the elderly.” Yes medication does help me tremendously but I wish I did not have to take them. I had a problem sleeping through out the night and I was prescribed a medication to help me sleep. The medication was so strong that once I fell asleep it was impossible to wake me up before 11am. If there were a fire I would have burnt in it. My husband referred me to Dr. Sebi www.drsebiscellfood.com and I started taking natural herbs called Banju. I was suppose to take a tablespoon in the morning and night but I was taking it wrong, only once per day. Even though I was taking it wrong it was so strong that even a year after I stopped taking it, I was still able to sleep at night without waking up through out the night. So is there a safe product out there that schizophrenics can take without side effects? Possibly but I advice anyone that take medication and want to stop the medication to only do so with a doctors consent.
Chapter 7 of Swiyyah’s book, “Don’t Call Me Crazy! I’m Just in Love.” While continuing to stare at the television set, Anika sees a vision of Jesus. He appears to her in just as perfect form and image as the paintings on Mary’s wall. She then hears Jesus speak, “I am the son of God.” Then just as fast as he appears, he leaves her vision.
“Did you see him? Did you see Jesus?” Anika turns and looks at her friends. Words are stuck within their throats.
I was born in the projects but I kept going. My father left when I was three but I kept going. I was molested by my brother but I kept going. My brother killed his self but i kept going. I was abused as a child but I kept going. I was hospitalized six times for paranoid schizophrenia but i kept going. My lungs collapsed but i kept going. I have inspired millions. I will not stop until I can inspire billions! I love people. Be inspired to live your dreams. Read, “Don’t Call Me Crazy! I’m Just in Love”.
No one considers the God factor in mental health. When I was 26 I was driving down the street and all of a sudden, for the first time ever, it felt like someone was controlling my thoughts and said, “Slow down someone is about to run the red light,” so I immediately obeyed and slowed down and two seconds later a truck ran the light. If it wasn’t for that revelation from God I would have been gone a long time ago. When I had a break from reality I was getting a lot of revelations from God and now eight years later they are starting to come true. I never knew I would write a book and I never knew I would become a National Motivational Speaker. I would advise anyone that has a severe mental illness to read Parapsychology so you will know the difference between mental illness and a revelation from God.
I believe many of the CEO’s of mental health organizations have recovered from a mental illness. People with disabilities own more businesses than people without disabilities.
I was thinking one day, why is it that many of our brilliant, famous, and rich millionaires and billionaires have been molested? I was molested once by my brother when I was five. I began reading story’s from several famous people about their journey. Oprah, Monique, Angela Basset, Tyler Perry, and Ricky Lake have all been molested. I was taught by my mom that life is 1% what happens to you and 99% how you react to it. Those famous that were molested have used that negative energy to create greatness. Those that use their negative energy to do something negative end up murderers and rapist.
