Religion a Tough Topic

I've talked about this on here before that I don't claim a type of religion, and that does not make me an Atheist. Click here  to see my previous and still somewhat views. There are so many different types of religions there is just a list of on and on I looked it up, and I do know they only have the popular ones listed there is more than 20 religions in the world click here to see what the popular ones are. My problem is there is a particular type of mold that each religion wants the woman to fill and when my book comes out you will understand why I haven't stepped foot into a church for so long. Some people use it as a weapon, and others don't in my experience. I've only heard of some people that aren't like that. Religion is just something I haven't had a pleasant experience with, but that doesn't make me an Atheist I claimed the religion of Wicca for almost a year. It was comforting, and sometimes I find myself looking in that direction for answer

Fantasy Post (Mngwa Part 1)

I started talking about writing some short stories to help me widen my mind for my fantasy novel. Well, this is my first one, and I hope it's enjoyed. Deep in the African forests their lyes a creature called a Mngwa. A cat as large as a horse and more powerful than a lion. The surrounding tribes feared this creature the ones who were brave enough to enter the forest to kill the beast never returned.  In a small tribe that lays on the edge of the forest call Aanick, Aanick is a tribe that is slowly dying, food is running low and people getting sick. In Aanick, a father has had to make a tough decision his family was starving, and he had to choose between his son and daughter. This man planned to send his daughter to go pick berries in the forest without knowledge of the Mngwa. The man went to bed after tucking his son in and kissing his daughter goodnight for the last time. That morning he asked his daughter to go pick the berries usually warning her not to go too far but nev

Support People

I've been talking about my book lately when I realized even though it's a competitive field doesn't mean we shouldn't support each other. I know a few books not a lot about epilepsy A Mind Unraveled: A Memoir by  Kurt Eichenwald  is one I own and one I'm looking to buy is Living with Epilepsy by Mel Riebe Jr. I talked to Mel personal on my Facebook page when I got told about it so I looked it up on Amazon and I think I'm going to buy it. Like I said even though it's competitive we should support each other. There isn't a lot of books available for and Epileptic. I say go check these books out support the community and just support people, in general, be a good person. It's really not that hard I want to help people of all kinds that's why I wrote my self-help book You. it was written for you after all. Not just people with epilepsy but people. I encourage everyone to support everyone. Just open up your heart don't let everybody in but app

Do You Know What You Want

I've teased my book as Hotmess well there's been a change......I renamed my book, and I am debating on releasing the title of the book. I want to tell you guys so much about it, but I also don't want to spoil it either. I've worked so hard on this book that I'm so excited that I'm moving onto the editing process. I have it lined up one of my friends, who is a professional photographer, to help me with my book cover. I've figured out what I want in life, and I've set my goal. I'm glad I've had all of you join me. I hope you find you what and where you saw what I want to do I want you to find what you do. I found this quote, and I don't know why, but it felt like it was hitting close to home.  I am grateful for where I am at in life and excited about what's coming. I'm hoping one of you just one of you decides to look at it or even buy it. I want my self-help book to help people, and I don't only plan on writing self-help books.

My Book

So I know I've mentioned it once but my self-help book Hotmess at least once or twice well as ironic as it may sound because I'm writing. I have to write to get rid of writer's block so I guess I just need to change my mindset on what I want to say and how I want to say it. I am proud to say that I am all the way into Chapter 4 in such a short amount of time I've written over 3000 words. I've found a publishing company and I'm just so proud of how far I've made it on this book. I've started other books in the past but have never felt so passionate about one like I do this one. I hope you like it and honestly, I don't know if I want to name it hot mess anymore.

Let's Talk

Depression let's talk about that   When the chemicals in your brain aren't functioning the way it should. There are many signs of it, in multiple different ways. For example, I know my depression is coming back when I notice I stop taking care of myself like makeup and as gross as it may sound washing my hair. I stop caring about myself I stop being the so-called fun-loving person that my friends know. It's crazy to think that people think about me that way, it's crazy that people are able to fall in love with me. I find it crazy that people can care about me. I'm here to talk about the truth and if you feel like this it's okay, it's okay. It's okay because believe it or not you're not alone and honestly you probably have someone close to you going through the same thing. Honestly just like epilepsy depression is not talked about as much as it should be. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not a disorder. Depression

Cameron Boyce's Impact

I've talked about SUDEP on here before and after the recent event of Cameron Boyce tragically passing away due to having a seizure in his sleep and then passing away afterward. There are many articles on his passing. The one I actually like the most would be an article by Forbes . It's one of the few that I have personally read talking about SUDEP. If you haven't read my personal views and some of the facts about it click here . I feel that SUDEP needs to be mentioned more than it has been in the past.          Here's a short list: :  1. SUDEP is the leading cause of epilepsy-related mortality. 2. The etiology of SUDEP is unknown. 3. SUDEP is rare; 1 child with epilepsy out of 4,500 per year and 1 adult with epilepsy out of 1,000 per year. 4. The only known risk factor is recurrent generalized tonic-clonic seizures. 5. The only known SUDEP prevention is seizure control. I want to make a positive post like normal but I can't because some
