Don't Let "Nothing" Turn Into "Something"

Some days I only feel strong enough to sit in my solemn chair, in a dim lit room, and say… NOTHING... Just know… You may feel like this is only happening to you, but, I wouldn't be writing this if it was. Remember you're not alone, and it's okay, to some days just do nothing, as long as we are taking 3 steps forward and only 1 step back. I believe we are #NotAlone and never will be. So take the time you need to collect yourself, because when we rise, we rise together. We rise one step at a time...

The Silence of Mental Illness

When I need to speak out the most. When my life is the most dangerous to myself. When I feel like I could just scream, a billion times over… I'm stuck with the silence of mental illness! When I feel like I need to say something to save myself from this madness, and it's on the tip of my tongue, all that I'm left saying is this: "I'm fine…" When in all reality I'm not. But, nothing comes out of my mouth, no emotions show on my face or body, and I'm left silenced by the disease of mental illness....

But, through the turmoil and anguish I feel, I sit back in my chair dwindling my beard as it tends to curl un-relentlessly to contemplate one preponderant thought... is it more harmful  than to slay, pray, and debilitate to our own life creating us for what's better known as "slaves to the game," or to be ignorant...

I'm a Male With an Eating Disorder!

Hey there! I’m Brian, the owner of Substance For You, and a male with a prior eating disorder. I struggled with anorexia, and over exercising, for a few years into my early recovery from alcohol and drugs. I got to devilishly low weights, but I still felt like I looked fat; which was a little bit of body dysmorphia. Today I’m healthy, but I do remember a time when putting food into my mouth, seeing it, or talking about it just plain hurt and caused me to get even sicker. For years I struggled with drugs and alcohol. Among this...

The Worst Thing Mental Illness Did to Me!

Depression, chronic pain, panic disorders, and eating disorders are all like a double edged sword with no winning; especially coupling them all together into one horrible, wretched scenario. That is, at least until you get your twenty minutes of solace each day. We all know there are those twenty good minutes to remind us that there must be some sense of hope, until, we are torn to absolute shreds again. Dealing with depression or anxiety with chronic pain is worse than anything I’ve ever had to just “wait out.” And that’s exactly what it is… a waiting game! Who wins?...
