Isn't it great to see that Whitney is heading back to the Land of the Living? I just hope that it is true but from the looks of the pictures someone sent to me, maybe it is. I can't wait to hear her sing again. I mean Whitney was the greatest and with God's help she can be again.
Who said it was fun to be home all day? Not for me. I have been home for one week and I am already bored. I have worked 20 years straight full time and never thought I would be laid off as a result of Bush economics. But no problems, I'll be working in no time. My decision is just deciding what to do. I do have the publishing company but that part time for me. I'm a multi-tasker so I have to be busy 24/7 to feel alive. Weird huh, but that's how I have always been.
I was asked a question today that perplexed me? It was by a young man who said that he had been molested at 6 years old by a male family friend. On his 19th birthday, he decided to come out clean about being gay. He always knew but never pursued this out of fear from others and the way society treats gay folks. He was also trying desperately not to disappoint his mom and dad and other relatives. He asked me, "If being gay is suppose to be a sin, why did God put the G-spot in the butt?" I couldn't answer because I didn't know it was there. He said, he didn't want to be gay at all but he liked sex like that since the molestation. The molestation went on for three years. I'm not a Bible wizard, nor do I know everything. But I don't believe that God does things to hurt, condemn and destroy us. I can't answer that question but I just said pray about it. I also said that he should just be honest with himself and family and that would take a lot of burden off him. I honestly didn't know what to say! Cat really had my tongue for the first time...
Why are all these women killing and taking other women fetus out their stomach and trying to act like they had a baby? With all the babies and children in foster care, why not just adopt? Mental illness is on the rise. That's why I decided to pen this book out around Christmas.
I believe that so many teens are dealing with mental health issues but they are being left untreated. The girl had many issues that were sealed in court because she was a juvenile. She should have been treated for a long time.
I have met too many kids, teens and their families who had no knowledge about how to get help when something isn't right. African Americans seek God and family to help with mental illness. That's great but we have to also learn what we are dealing with in order to handle it. I hope this book helps to introduce Depression to our community and let people know that it is nothing wrong with seeking help to get better. It wiill be released in December 2006.
