Mental illness still remains to be the silent killer that takes the lives of many throughout the world. While most people are encouraged to outwardly discuss their physical diseases, such as cancer or heart disease, if you are suffering from a mental disorder, then society tells us not to say anything because to put it simple "you look crazy". I am one of those private sufferers, who just woke up one day and decided to let whoever reads this know and understand that mental illness is not a personal fault, nor is it something that people should be penalized for. I mainly suffer from bipolar disorder, but I also have issues with having serious panic attacks. As far as I have been told, I am an individual who looks normal and happy. But sometimes people are not able to see the truth that lies behind living with a sickness, especially one that they are not able to see. 

So, what is it like to live my life? A roller coaster. Most days I wake up in the morning hating that I am here for yet another day, simply because I can get severely depressed to the point where waking up feels like a punishment. There have been times where my illness has left me curled up in a ball, unable to live a decent life or work, but  wishing to God that he would make me happy and take away all of the hurt, pain and loneliness. For years, I have been a prisoner to something that is not my fault. I have visited specialists consistently with little to no results. Many believe that some people are beyond help, so they try to stick you on as many medications as possible because it is the "only" way.  No matter who you are, suffering from a mental disorder can make your life appear worthless and lonely, simply because there are few people who are willing to share their personal experiences and when they do, they are ostracized even more. 

In this life, we have choices. We can either choose to let the circumstances define who we are, or we can rise above it and use our hurt and pain as a way to help others who are desperately seeking knowledge and help for the way they feel. Choosing to keep your personal problems to yourself is not a crime. But I do encourage those who may be suffering from a lifelong mental illness to seek professional help. And if you know someone who is going through this, whether they are living with it or witnessing it, try to  have compassion. Living on either side of a mental disorder is extremely difficult for all who are involved. Thus, it is mainly kept a  shameful secret. So, today, I am writing and publishing this as an effort to enlighten people. I hope to be able to save at least one person who is contemplating suicide and does not want to live anymore because they are private sufferers. In the midst of this, I am prepared that people will be negative and hurtful towards me, but it is something that I am finally willing to do, just to reach one person to let them know that they are not alone and that everything WILL be okay.

If you have not discovered the beauty of BB and CC creams, then today is your day! BB cream (Blemish Balms) and CC cream (Color Correcting) are now the hottest new skin trends. These creams can save you time and money because it can do the job of six products, combined in one. Instead of buying sunscreen, age defying lotion, spot reducer, primer, and moisturizer, many of these creams are designed to take care of multiple problems  WITHOUT needing to purchase additional products. This can also be space efficient. Many of these creams  include a light foundation or tinted moisturizers within the product itself. For people who are looking to have foundation  mixed in with the other ingredients, they  may find it difficult to match their skin color with these creams, if you mix a little bit of your current foundation  with this product, you can get the desired effect. BB creams can be used by any ethnicity or skin type. Also, these creams have been around for about 50 years and have been prominently used by individuals from South Korea. However, Americans are quickly becoming addicted to these creams. It is also a unisex product.  PLEASE NOTE: Although BB creams are wonderful, they are NOT a miracle worker. You may see visible skin results over time, however, the product may not clear everything. Contact your local dermatologist for advice if there is any particular spot that you desire to make invisible. 


On the other hand, CC cream or Color Control cream, is a more polished version of BB cream. Similar to BB cream, CC cream is widely used in Asia but is quickly spreading throughout multiple areas in the West. This cream is specially designed to brighten and even the color of your complexion. CC creams are different from BB creams, because CC creams are said to "prime, protect (with SPF), moisturize, and oil control - all while neutralizing and brightening the skin for an even complexion. It is also designed to help fade dark spots and even complexion over time. An example of this is Smashbox's new CC Cream Broad Spectrum, featured below in the examples of different types of BB and CC Creams. Also, BB creams are primarily used to PREVENT imperfections from happening, while CC Creams are designed to CORRECT what has already occurred. Regardless of which item an individual chooses, be sure to try out both to see which one has a better impact on your skin. What are you waiting for? Try out the newest, hottest trends of BB and CC Creams!

(cute pics & videos included!), there is a huge debate as to whether dogs and cats are capable of the similar feelings that humans have. Can dogs and cats really love? Are they capable of having compassion? Are they loyal, friendly (at times) and misbehave? Do they show expression through their eyes?

Scientist around the world are always trying to prove the existence or non existence of something. The truth is, many things can not be answered. We can talk about the air all day long, but it is something that we know exists because we feel it. This is the same thing about "love." No one can deny that "love" exist, however, they often deny the true meaning of love.

4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
 (1 Corinthians 13:4-6)."

 He loves you, he loves you not...he loves you?
Why I need you to be my friend, PLEASE!

If you believe that a person is ridiculous for believing their pets actually like them, is it really unhealthy to feel like you have "something" that truly loves you? The world is filled with many other issues, this should not be one of them....
