Perhaps you’re feeling down, depressed, and life seems hopeless. Well, I have days like that too. But I just stumbled across a website that really gave me a lift. Check this out:
Recovery is not a cure, rather the ability to live our lives with balance and dignity. To be able to see and have real hope.”-
Chato B. Stewart, Founder of The Mental Health Humor Project
Mental Health Humor Project
Description: Do you life to laugh? This group is for ways we can use humor as a healthy coping skill.
What makes us laugh? What do you find funny?
“Hi. I’m Chato. I love to laugh and I love making others laugh too. A few years ago I started drawing cartoons about different mental health issues I was dealing with and it blossomed into a blog and a collection of over 200 cartoons.
My goal was to use the cartoons to help educate others about mental health and also draw something that my fellow peers could relate to. Over the past 2 years my main blog has seen over 200K visitors and the cartoons have been in many different newsletters and newspapers. Not to mention all the blogs and websites that post the cartoons.
Humor is healthy! And not just my humor, but what ever we find funny, we should look for more of it.”
One of the things I found on the site today, really got made me laughing hysterically. Not that this should be anything more than pure fantasy (the therapists of the world might revolt) but it sure is funny to think about.
Tory Wilson offers these Fun Things to Do at Your Therapists Office:
- Ask to borrow a comb, comb your tongue.
- Take random objects in his office and glue them to the floor.
- Refuse to cooperate unless he trades his pants.
- Never stop smiling.
- Talk to his leg.
Now that I’ve found this site, I’m going to visit regularly. Since most of what I write about on this blog, is of such a serious nature, it feels good to “lighten things” up. And I have a personal philosophy that I often share with others.
“If you can stay sane in this world, you’re really crazy!”
