Like a Skyscraper

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Well what a freaking start to 2021, am I right? It really seems like 2020 was just the first edition and now we’re on to the sequel. I have decided that any day  I am healthy is a good day. I am really trying to not see things as so black and white. Things aren’t just good or bad. There are good things in everyday life. There are sometimes bad things that happen everyday. BUT- in 2021, I am deciding to take solace in the good everyday and remind myself just how...

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  I have been hanging in there.  A quick update for anyone that may be a religious reader of this blog, (I hope there are some of you out there!

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  Today I wanted to talk about setting boundaries when you have mental health issues. I think so often, as you always hear me say, we treat mental health disorders as different from physical illnesses. And myself and others agree that this shouldn’t be the case. However, until they are treated the same, we have to be the ones to make changes and help people understand this. One thing I have noticed is that often, people’s boundaries when it comes to mental health aren’t taken that seriously.  And I have a huge problem...

Your Girl is Angry!

Posted by Marigrace Pilger on

Hello mental health champions, how are you doing?  I feel fired up today. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I have been fighting mental illness for about 8 years or just that there is so much ignorance in the world today. Our whole goal with Love-Brain is to spread the word about mental health and the stigma. SO HERE WE ARE. There are a couple things on my mind but one thing that triggered me was something I saw on social media the other day. Someone was claiming that they don’t believe in mental health. They think people...
