Strong Fit Fabulous – A Journey to Well Being

Your Healing awaits You

It is as simple as taking a breath

A  decision you make

“I choose Well Being”

 Take a slow breath in and on the out breath, say softy to yourself

“I choose Well Being”

With Love 


A choice to make – A Journey to Well Being

You get to decide what you hurt about

You get to choose how long you hurt for


When you are ready


When you desire Wellness and seek it, just a little


It will unfold  for you

At a pace you can easily handle


You get to experiment




What Well Being looks like for you


…and the journey will give you great wisdom and clarity…if you let it


It is just a decision you make


“I want to get well”

“I want to experience what Well Being looks like for me”

“I am going to learn how to be well”

“I am going to find hope”

“I am going to find Beauty and Magic and Joy”


Feel your way….


And you say it to yourself quite a few times a day




“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”

“I want to get well”


Feel it get clearer and stronger as you repeat it for a long as You need


Who cares how long it is taking

There is only You at Your place in Your journey

You are spectacularly unique and wonderful

Explore yourself



Seek within

Listen to your self-talk now and again.

Just make a decision to notice it here and there


…and then remember  “I’m going to get well” if you notice your thoughts make you feel down


Embrace the power of this simple statement “I’m going to get well”


Feel it in your bones

In your Soul


Expect that your walk to Wellness will take 6 months to 2 years perhaps. Depending upon which aspect of the learning you are focusing upon, when you begin

Where you are starting, in this very personal journey



Start a conversation with yourself and tell a different story

A story of where you are going

Not where you have been


Try another thought, now and then

One that brings a smile perhaps

Change your focus

Look up and outward into the light

Appreciate something, anything, in this moment now


Whenever you do that, you look toward your best self


And as you seek, the teachers will appear

The perfect one for you


Just make a decision


“It’s time for me to know what Well Being looks like”


“I choose to experience Well Being”



With Love

The psychiatrists job – A Journey to Well Being

And this healing journey is available to all


And what is your job…as a psychiatrist?


To help them find their way to their Own well being

To assist them in discovering what well being looks like for Them

No-one else

Not the Doc or the drug company or the family or the friends, or the lover, or the healer, but themselves

And by focusing on their well being a little here…and a little there….not today perhaps, but tomorrow a little

And then at some point, they begin to actually enjoy, the unfolding journey

While I strongly believe that current medications make it more difficult to get back to Well Being, I do not recommend sudden cessation

Rather, find  your way to well being first

On a regular basis

With safety nets available

Strategies and plans  for you to deal with the often prolonged emotional, physical and mental withdrawal from these drugs that have messed with your ever so  finely balanced neurotransmitters.

Neurotransmitters  that are involved in every moment of your life


The Psychiatrist should have in depth knowledge of the cessation syndromes,  otherwise they have no right to prescribe them

Healing is there for all


It is so

With Love



Pointing the bone

When you diagnose someone with  Recurrent Depression

Tell them it will return despite their best efforts

You diminish their power to heal


For on any given day, that they may feel a little sad, they will remember  your words and remind themselves,  with their thinking patterns and hence their feelings, that it is so


Instead of helping them heal

They are condemned


But hear me, my friend.

You can heal…forever


You can walk a gentle path, back to Your Own Well Being


It is so

An open letter to Neurologists – The irrelevancy of names

It doesn’t matter what type of movement you call it:

Dystonic, Dyskinesic, Athetoid, Functional, Choreic, Movement disorder, Conversion, Dyskinetic, Clonus, Jerk, Tic, Basal Ganglia disease,


It doesn’t matter what your textbooks call it:

Dopa Responsive, Primary, Secondary, Tardive, Paroxysmal, Psychogenic


What matters, is our experience of it

…….and in the main you have very little knowledge of our experience of it

…..our lives


….and then you decide:


With this label you get this

With this label you don’t

With this label you get these benefits

With this label you don’t

With this label you get compassion

With this label you don’t


There are too many stories unheard

There is too much pain caused by your labels


You must open your minds, your eyes, your hearts

And close your textbooks


You must hear us

If you want to help heal us


With Love
