  • Glenn Discusses Mental Health S8 EP0

    in Self Help

    So much has has happened in my life since 2010. I got sober in 2013, and was finally treated for Bipolar 2, a mental health condition that had been misdiagnosed for several years. I am grateful to this day for the physician that eventually got the diagnosis right, and prescribed me the correct medication that stabilized my fluctuating emotions.
    During treatment and post treatment I learned a great deal about myself, and corrected a lot of untruths I was taught, and had been holding onto sacredly. They were a mix of religion, heteroxexual perspectives, and overall poor thinking in general. The climb out from the gutter changed how I saw the world and myself in the world as a black gay man. Gone is the desire to go clubbing and be a part of the hedonistic side of gay life. I am more quiet and settled now.
    My Wordpress blog “Beautiful Soul,” that I started in 2010 has undergone a number of name changes, before I finally settled on one that I could live with. I share my experience, strength, & hope with others, as I continue gaining insight about myself. By no means is it a do-it-my-way type of thing, but more so a this -is-how-I-did-it, and hopefully it can help you find your own way.

  • More on Misdiagnosis of TBI from Caren and Kim on Recovery Now

    in Self Help

    Ignorance causes misdiagnosis and therefore ineffective (or no) treatment for children with Brain Injury - Particularly ones with less obvious "tells". Professionals, parents, educators, and others are not familiar with common symptoms that point to Brain Injury. As a result, too many kids are thrust into a life of challenges that are never tied back to the root cause of TBI. In turn a disfunctional circle forms, robbing these children a quality of life and independence they may have achieved. These patterns cause so many to fall through the cracks, then following them into adulthood.
    Profiling becomes an issue based on ability level both outside and inside the brain injury community. Needs based services, advocacy groups, and others are more sympathetic to those obviously impaired. The others, deal not only with their injury but proving themselves - Even if they don't recognize the issue themselves.
