YOU MATTER by Edith Wanyonyi
Hey you there,
This piece here is for you. I don’t know what makes you feel invisible. I may not understand what you have to fight every day to keep going… Maybe it’s that childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, physical illness, failure, insecurities, doubt, shame or fear of the unknown.
Whatever it is that you are going through, I just want to let you know that you matter, you are enough, you are loved, you are incredible.
So, every day when you wake up let this be a reminder to help push through. Life is a journey with ups and downs. Nothing is permanent. Someday everything will make perfect sense but for now, keep going. You can make it!

This response has evolved to keep us safe, as it prepares the body for ‘fight or flight’ when we sense danger. Research has also shown that thinking skills improve as stress increases. So in short bursts, stress can be a good thing. It can help us prepare for a sports match, job interview, or exam. Usually, after a stressful event, the body returns to its normal state.

EPILEPSY! A MIND DISORDER WITH MANY MISCONCEPTIONS
February 14th is World Epilepsy Day. Epilepsy is a brain disorder that has many misconceptions.
