Coming out ‘crazy’

pinterest-tamitsansai-mental-health-blogger-coming-out-crazy-jan-2017It’s Friday the 13th and I’m officially ‘coming out crazy’… It’s very similar to my first post years ago, but, this time, much more in-depth. Indeed, I’ve decided to publicly own all my labels in an attempt to not only free myself of all unnecessary shame, guilt and propensity to conceal, but also (hopefully) to inspire others to do the same because, guess what, there are many others like myself.(That would be mostly functional and seemingly alright without us making anyone the wiser – in case you were wondering). We didn’t ask for mental illness and have more than enough to handle already without adding all that extra weight to our shoulders. There are also many people who aren’t functioning for various reasons and that’s okay too, because nothing is wrong with us as people or about our character… We’re just mentally ill. Stigma is stupid and it desperately needs to end, so yes, once again I’m addressing the elephant in the room.  Continue reading “Coming out ‘crazy’”

I hope this year brings you much joy, peace and blessings in all areas of your life – let’s all focus on that so we can attract it. I don’t know about you guys, but if you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know just how happy I am that 2016 is over with (two hallelujahs and a tambourine shake for that). It’s my first post of the year and already there are some changes happening – (a) I’m now registered as a mental health/media consultancy business; (b) I’ve updated the name of the blog to ‘One Mind At A Time’; and (c) I’m in the process of getting things more ‘businesslike’ as a result. Shameless plug time: If you missed my January mental health newsletter, click on the link for more in-depth information on the new journey and don’t forget to subscribe here so you’ll stay in the know – there will be many more exciting things happening as the year progresses. Also, seeing that I just mentioned last week’s e-mail, I’m re-opening the poll and survey I posted until Friday of this week, just in case you missed the chance to contribute to the direction my blog posts will now take – I’d love to hear from you. (Of course you can always just contact me here to let me know as well). Anyway lovelies, on to the first post of the New Year, courtesy of the feedback you have given me so far. I’m happy to share with you three easy, effective strategies (I personally use) to stay on top of my mental health every day – read on…

Hello, November! (Mental Health Survey Inside)


Greetings lovelies,

Welcome to November! Are you wondering how we got here too? I think we all are at this point… 2016 is going super fast. That said, I wanted to quickly drop in and let you know that I’m re-branding this site for official re-launch in January, so there will be changes to the look and feel as well as the content, to some extent. Reason being, I’m currently developing a mental health awareness and support business which will be primarily centred on this blog, along with offshoots of services, events and products related to #mentalhealthmatters that I’ll be offering.  Continue reading “Hello, November!
