MIRRORS: A special series of Reflections on Life and Love ❤️
I would like to say “Thank You” to Yeka for giving me the honor of writing this Guest Post.
We go through life taking care of our personal medical, sometimes spiritual, but when it comes to our mental health we give little regard to it, until we come face to face with a crisis. A crisis that overtakes us without warning. It can be triggered by a sudden death of a loved one, a tragedy within the family unit.
My first experience with a mental health crisis was with a family member experiencing signs of schizophrenia. It seemed to come out of the blue without any warning.
The next crisis
would be my own, attempted suicide via an overdose of sleeping pills. The
trigger was total burnout, and a crisis of faith. Things that I just couldn’t espouse any more.
I would experience several more episodes, then diagnosed
bi-polar. With help from a psychiatrist
and proper medications I am stable. I have learned through all this how to
recognize the start of panic attacks, with learned coping skills I can avert a
full blown attack.
My advice to the reader is to take time to deal with stress whether it be at work, school, or at home.
Never go to bed angry, learn skills to release the anger in a healthy manner.
Have a proper intake of nutrition, we are what we eat.
Be thankful not only for the big things, but, for the tiniest.
You only have one mind, it matters what you do with it!

My sister Liesl Batucan singing with the Philippine Philharmonic Orchestra at the CCP Main Theater. I’m so immensely proud of her. What an angelic voice. And I love the lyric “to sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray…..” That’s her. Her beauty is in the purity of her light. I love you so much Lizzie…..❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
