addressing Mental Health issues:
This website was actually the
original website of the entire network. It was designed to show how our mental health can affect all of us - no matter what
gender or what age. It also shows how our lifestyle factors affect our mental health.

try recovering 101
This site describes a personal growth recovery journey and
the questions you might have.
what is this site about? why bother? what is recovery? how can it help me?
what is the emotional feelings network of sites? it's one person's recovery story - shared
how to use the network for all you stubborn, hard headed people, like I used to be!
how it all comes together
it's all about you learning to love you!
Abuse and domestic violence were once included in the original site website I designed -
anxiety understanding - but had to be taken out when anxieties 101 became a reality. It was important to me to include this
in information pertaining to mental health because I personally lived in domestic violence my entire life, but had never known
about mental illness.
Even after visiting the emergency room almost everyday for one year, no one ever told me
I might be experiencing an anxiety or panic attack. I had several endoscopic procedures and saw specialists regularly, even
took Percocet while pregnant to control my chest pain because the specialists didn't understand what was causing me the unbearable
I was finally diagnosed with post traumatic stress disorder, depression and an eating disorder.
I firmly assert that all victims of abuse and domestic violence need to engage in a mental health assessment when entering
shelters, as well as their children. If mental health was a priority, perhaps it wouldn't take women so long to leave their
abusive husband, partners, parents, or whoever instead of it taking up to seven times of leaving
the abusive situation to finally leave for good.
The following pages are found on the abuse 101 website:
if you are being abused now
about abuse of power
about abusive people
bullies - both childhood and adult
teen dating violence
abuse at work
domestic violence basics
domestic violence shelters
leaving an abusive relationship
if your abuser is a cop
your abuser is your parent
Welcome! Once again, I had
to personally include eating and sleeping disorders in my own personal growth recovery journey so a website emerged concerning
them all. I personally have dealt with night eating syndrome, an eating/sleeping disorder most of my life. I moderate a support
group for night eaters, visit the site by clicking the above link to join the group. You'll see the link on every page to
Eating disorders, mental health, abuse, domestic violence are all connected.
This was a very difficult part of my recovery. Although I beat eating at night, my sleep remains disordered and my eating
habits are still not as healthy and consistent as they need to be.
To learn more
about the site, just click on the link above! Here are the pages included within the night eating website:

the layer down underI thought of the name for the next few sites because throughout
my personal growth recovery journey it seemed that I was unpeeling the layers within to find more things to discover and figure
out within my own self. So as you go through this site - you'll find the second stage of what I found was needed for a personal
growth recovery journey and as you visit the next few layer down under sites, you'll see how you are peeling back the layers
of time in your own journey as well!

gambling, sex, the Internet, prescription medications, shopping and more!

Throughout my personal growth
and recovery journey I've had to become very truthful with myself concerning how my religious beliefs swayed my thinking throughout
my difficult past. Defining our own personal religious beliefs, I believe, is something very important instead of just adopting
the beliefs of our parents. Take a peek and see if anything touches you!

believing in God
Sharing your Story
- does religion help in recovery?
why is religion important to us?
did you ever join a cult? was it spiritual abuse?
do they really care about you at church?
traditions, and service work
youth and religion these days
the self pages
The self pages started out because I found the need
to learn more about myself in my personal growth recovery journey. This site speaks to "self" emotions and feelings; for example
- self acceptance and self confident. It's important that we learn as much as possible about our own selves as we can't move
forward in personal growth and recovery until we've faced our own self. Check it out. The following pages are available on
the self pages - the homepage
self harm - self injury
In keeping with my original theme in anxieties 101
- I wanted to take the gender/age groups a step further with their own personal sites. Information concerning children is
of the utmost importance since children don't come with how to manuals when they are born; I feel it's important to look at our own upbringings, realize the results of the parenting practices of our parents and then teach
ourselves what different parenting skills are needed to raise emotionally and physically healthy kids!
