When Crazy Happens

The clip above may not be the most accurate depiction of going crazy but it’s what I always imagine when I hear about a breakdown. This week one of my favorite artists , Kanye West had a mental breakdown resulting in the cancellation of the rest of his St. Pablo tour. It hits me hard not only because seeing him was supposed to be my Christmas gift but because what could be a very serious and life threatening issue get’s treated more like a one ring circus. He’s  not the first and definitely won’t be the last but hopefully people will start the conversation about mental illness, regardless if you’re in the limelight or an average joe no one is above a breakdown and help should be readily available.

Not only should they be available but when someone does seek help they shouldn’t be persecuted or shamed by their community for doing so. For years mental illness has been swept under a rug or ignored and dismissed as being weak which is the worse way to treat something that usually gets worse over time. I hope and pray for a speedy recovery for him and the millions like him.

Anyone out there?

BACK AT IT AGAIN with the blank blog generated by WordPress and doesn’t it feel good? If you ever forgot that you owned a domain name until you see the yearly renewal on your bank statement welcome to the club. What started off as my playground for testing code will now be my platform/soapbox to talk about all the things that I care about regardless of how little they matter in the grand scheme of things . That means video games, anime,wrestling, gadgets and whatever else pops into my head and make me happy. Thanks for stopping by and since you’re already here you might as well stay a while
