Mental Health - The Silent Scream

Mental Health - The Silent Scream

Posted by cancertakesflight on Feb 10, 2019 10:29 am

I don’t know about you, but there are days when I look relatively normal on the outside while I scream silently inside. I’m an equal opportunity person so sometimes I want to scream about work, sometimes about home, sometimes about my health, and sometimes about me. I don’t show any favouritism. I allow myself to be irritated by about anything. Even better, I don’t necessarily limit my irritation to be about one thing at a time. I’ve been known to allow the emotions associated with multiple negative events/people to build up until I’m not even sure why I feel tense, why I’m suddenly angry at everyone, and why I react so strongly to an every day event.

What are your thoughts on my most recent blog post? What techniques do you use when you feel like you want to scream?

For a man it is more like a terrible pain whether it be mental or physical.  I have  felt that people do not understand what I feel inside. However how could they because they are not me.
I try to fill my life with positive things and create a structured day spending time listening to positive voices like good music to limit the time my mind has to deal with the negative thoughts.  we cant stop the urge to scream for you and the pain for me but we can have some control over it.

Keep the candle burning no matter what  With Love SpeedyStill
