Take Me To Post Comment Form

Back in April, I posted my first blog entitled "Shattering the Stigma of Counseling". Since that time, I have been on a quest to establish myself as a reputable mental health resouce within our community, in order to assist individuals in developing the knowledge and awareness of mental health, treatment options, and resources.

Lately, I have found myself becoming more interested in posting blogs focused on mental health and would like to ensure that my blogs are meeting the needs of my readers. With that being said, I am reaching out to each of you to determine what are some topics and/or areas that you would like to have researched and focused on.

I would greatly appreciate and will be receptive to all of your suggestions and/or feedback.

Great KLS. I have no problems whatsoever with this effort of yours. Without knowing your credentials I am going to trust that you are an authentic licensed counselor. In your previous Blog I agreed that there should be no stigma attached to a person submitting to counseling and admitted having done so myself at a time in my life. One of the best things I have ever done!

Anyway, regarding your request above. Here is a hypothetical question for your consideration:

How does one forgive someone that does not seek your forgiveness and couldn't care less? Someone who has inflicted say, emotional pain upon you and refuses further to lend any validation to your very existence via non-acknowledgement. Thus inflicting even more pain upon you? What should take place?

Thank you.

Hi JimmyMack,

Thank you so much. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with the Georgia Composite Board of Professional Counselors, Social Work, and Marriage and Family Therapist; as well as a National Certified Counselor with the National Board of Certified Counselors.

I am definitely going to be working on updating my profile in the near future to make sure that information is available.

I definitely like you hypothetical question and will writing a blog focused on this area and posting within the next few days.

Let us get on the topic of "STRESS". That is one thing we can all relate to. Stress kills in more ways than one. It gave me high blood pressure. We all need to vent sometimes. I do believe that is why a lot of people blog.

Sheran,

Stress plays a major role in our ability to live healthy lives, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Identifying a outlet in which we are able to release, whether it be blogging, talking with others, reading, exercising, etc; will help to decrease our levels of stress.

I will definitely make sure that I incorporate some blogs that focus on stress, wellness, and lifestyle choices.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Hi Sheran. Great question and I believe you are on to something in regards to the function of this blog site. I know the blogs function as a release for me at times. The 'perceived' anger in some of my blogs are not a mirage.

On a somewhat unserious note, all one has to do is read my profile on how I deal with stress. It works 7 out of 10 times. Come over one day, and I will demonstrate it for you. :) Wear your bathing suit or cheerleader outfit.

Jeeeeeeeeeeze Sheran. NO poles, no G-strings, no high heels?!!! Thanks anyway tho. It appears to me that Arab men can only deal with a woman shaking her booty while in full burka garb. They are a sexually repressed culture. Both male and female.

:)!

We need more poles, G-strings and high heels (and I'm not talking about RuPaul, Bradley Manning or Christopher Beck.)

But hey - speaking of those and a blog topic: how about a blog which discusses the stress experienced by transgender persons in an angry white male heterosexual society?

JimmyMack commented on Sunday, Jul 20, 2014 at 15:05 PM

@Sebe. Yes! We could perhaps get Phil Robertson to offer up some commentary. I bet the Blog would get beaucoup hits.

Quack!

YO Tot: YOu ever been on the analyst's couch?

sebekm commented on Wednesday, Jul 23, 2014 at 12:49 PM

....or the casting couch?

JimmyMack commented on Saturday, Jul 26, 2014 at 13:16 PM

Well....I flipped a coin and guess what?

It came up TAILS (casting couch) ouch!

Now go and try to get THAT visual out of your head. Some here may squeal...with laughter.
