Depressed – You are Not?

You know I like what this fellow has to say. The words ring true and maybe something to consider before you reach out for those happy pills that the doctor handed out to you.
We have addictions all over the world that have become ramped and out of control because of pills that have been handed willy nilly by some doctors in the medical profession before there has been enough study of their patients as to why they are feeling down and could it pass with some therapy.
We do have cases of PTSD which is a different scenario and they do need great care and observation to help them.
Like many I have had black days but they do pass, we get over it.
Anyway just watch the video and the next time you feel a little low chances are it will pass.

Day 22 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

DONE! Day 22 – My work is done. Hopefully this small effort has made anyone who has been watching any one of the last 22 days, aware of the traumas that our veterans suffer while away and on their return home. So let us all be compassionate and helpful in anyway we can. Donation would be good at ‘Getheadstrong.org
Mind you I must add this was the second take, I actually did 44 pushups as my camera man cut my head out of the picture in the first video. I was breathing a little heavy in the second take.

The reason for 22 days and 22 pushups is the recognition and awareness of proven statistical evidence that there are at least 22 veterans commit suicide each day in the United States Of America and a growing number in Australia. There has been 274 suicides in Australia since 1999.

For most of us, we can not comprehend the trauma that they experience and how tolerant and supportive we must be for those who fight for our freedoms. It is not only tragic for our vets it is certainly heartbreaking for the families of these young men and women.
Today I nominate Mitch King 
to take the challenge.

No pressure . If you can great, if not that’s ok too.

But once you accept, you start tomorrow. The rules are simple:
* Once you are nominated your 22 days starts the following day.
* Every day you record yourself doing 22 push ups, try your best to reach 22. If that means doing assisted push ups (from your knees) or you have to stop and take a break, that is fine but try to get them all done in one video.
* Every day the push-ups must be in a different location.
* Every day you just nominate a different person.
* And finally have fun with this!
This a great way to have fun and let these courageous Men and Women who put their life on the line and those suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) know that someone is thinking about them.

Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

Day 21 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

One more day to go. Taken at our closest park as there is rain around so could not go far. My intention was to go to the local Fair at Rosenberg where my friends have entered into the “cook Off”  but it looked like I was going to get rained upon. So with glass in hand of Prosecco it seems watching football is on the menu now for the afternoon.

Day 19 – 22 Pushups – 22 Days – Awareness of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

This was taken at my gym (LA Fitness)  this morning at 6am. Kindly videoed by a member of the gym whom I do not remember his name and it felt impolite to ask him as I chat to him most mornings. How embarrassing is that.

Today, being the 20th of September 2016, was way, way too hot to go outside to do the pushups. It was 100 degree’s which is mighty uncomfortable so did them inside.
