Woman battling depression shares photo of her very messy bedroom with a deep message about depression

A mother of two who says she has been battling major depression for a while, shared a very deep and emotional post about depression.

The woman, whose name is Chrissie Gaddies shared photos of her messy bedroom on Facebook and explained why people who have almost ''everything'' still commit suicide because they are depressed.
I was my bedroom yesterday morning. I'm not posting this because I'm proud of it or to be funny. I'm posting this because THIS IS WHAT DEPRESSION LOOKS LIKE. Certainly there are moments when depression looks like crying and all that stereotypical stuff, but this is what everyday life looks like when you are living with major depression. I pull myself together enough to keep my boys alive and taken care of. We don't miss appointments. We do extracurricular activities. We go to church and to the park. I txt friends to check on them and pay my bills. I do what needs to be done. Everything in the apartment gets cleaned except my room. Not intentionally, it just happens.


I've never survived a natural disaster like a tornado or hurricane but I've seen the aftermath on TV. People hide in a safe place to ride out the storm and when everything is calm again they come out and see the damage. That's what living with depression is like for me. I ride it out and then on a day when I wake up and things are good I look around to assess the damage and clean up. And then I wait for the next storm to hit. It could be a day or a few weeks. But it's always coming back.


I've been reading several posts about the recent suicides of celebrities. People have been making these comments about money can't buy happiness and how success can't fill voids in your life. Those words are nice, but they aren't the whole picture. Kate Spade and Anthony B probably loved their work. It probably brought joy and fulfillment to their lives. Just like I love my boys and wouldn't trade being their mom for anything. Depression doesn't care. It holds your head under the water until it decides to let go. And sometimes you just get tired of holding your breath.



The people in your life living with major depression don't look depressed. They get up everyday and present well. They are fighting with everything inside of them to be and feel normal. If you're looking for someone in a corner crying you're probably not going to find that.



Just love us where we are. Don't push us to heal or shame us for taking meds. Don't tell us all the things that help you when you're feeling sad. Just love us. Don't try to do life for us. If you offered to clean my room I would tell you no. Not because of shame or pride but because I know my good day is coming and I know how great it's going to feel when I can clean my room, or cook dinner, or whatever it is that I haven't been able to do during the storm.

Nigerian pharmacist in Chicago shoots dead his wife, their 8 year old daughter, and commits suicide

The dead bodies of three family members were found in a home in west suburban Chicago. It has now been revealed that they are Nigerians and it was a murder-suicide carried out by the father.

Olasunkanmi Esho,42, a Nigerian Pharmacist living in Chicago, shot his Cameroonian wife, Bourk Esho, 33, and their 7-year-old daughter, Olivia Esho, after which he shot and killed himself.
The Darien Police Department says officers responding to a call about shots fired in a home in the 7500-block of Farmingdale Drive, found the bodies about 1 a.m. Sunday.
They are survived by their 13-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter. The 8-year-old reportedly died in the arms of her 13-year-old brother. According to reports, the teenager heard gunshots outside and ran to call his mom to report the incident, not knowing their dad had shot their mom. On getting there, he saw his sister bleeding and he carried her to seek for help but she died in his arms.

Stop confusing Nigerians. It is not possible to honor MKO Abiola in one breathe and and then admire his tormentor in another breath - Soyinka

Nobel laureate Prof. Wole Soyinka today told President Buhari that honroing late Chief MKO Abiola and praising his ''tormentor in chief'' was quite confusing.

Prof. Soyinka spoke at the Presidential Villa during the conferment of posthumous award of Grand Commander of the Federal Republic (GCFR) on the presumed winner of the June 12 presidential election, the Late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola.

Though the Nobel Laureate did not mention any name, his words pointed to the late dictator, Gen. Sani Abacha who President Buhari had praised in recent times. Speaking at the event, Soyinka said

“I would like to make a request Mr President that you stop creating confusion in the minds of Nigerians. Stop confusing Nigerians.  It is not possible to honor MKO Abiola in one breathe and and then admire his tormentor in another breath. Loyalty is all very well but that loyalty can become perverse if that loyalty is retained to an individual who if he were alive today, would be before the international court of crimes against humanity, one who broke the laws of Nigeria, committed crimes humanity. It is confusing if professional loyalty is carried so far.

We had a private conversation sometime ago and remember that one of the things I mentioned to you was this, You are fighting corruption, how come it that a notorious corrupt ruler is honored by one of the most important avenues in the FCT. The answer you gave to me was not too satisfactory but I let it pass. Today perhaps is also a day for us to inaugurate our hall of shame to future generations'' he said

You Think Beyonce is a Diva? Try Blu Ivy.

Blue Ivy Carter may only be six but she already has a personal stylist, chef, sportswear line and wears £6,000 frocks. Get the picture?
Daily mail has given us an insight on the weight this six year old is pulling.

She was taken to the Grammy Awards on Sunday night in LA (something of a tradition — she's been attending since 2015).

Seated between her parents, she shushed them with effortless authority when they started clapping singer Camila Cabello during her speech — and caused an instant internet sensation.
Of course, you can't entirely blame the child for her high-handed attitude. But it's worth considering the peculiar lifestyle which has allowed her to get away with being so spectacularly bossy.

While other children may be playing in the park and having fishfingers for tea, Blue Ivy is already a mogul-in-the-making. She has her own staff, a personal stylist, a chef and bodyguards. Plans are already afoot for her to launch her own fragrance and clothing lines and her commercial worth is such that her name is being trade-marked.

Her lifestyle is beyond lavish. Home is one of five mega-properties — two in Los Angeles and one each in New York, The Hamptons and Miami. Birthday parties are screechingly overstated affairs, and, yes, she already has a pony. Truly a pampered billion-dollar princess.
HER DEDICATED STAFF

it's fair to suggest Blue Ivy is never short of attention. There are two full-time nannies. Her younger siblings — twins Sir and Rumi who were born last June — also have two nannies each.

Before she started school, the nannies were reportedly giving Blue Ivy a head start in French, Swahili and art.

The same report suggested she is a 'picky eater' which will be a challenge for the chef, who apparently tempts her with wholewheat pasta shaped like ballet dancers and pureed asparagus.

There is also a full time security detail. There were reports that when she was born, in New York's Lenox Hill hospital in 2012, the security entourage was enormous and obstructed other hospital visitors.

When it comes to getting dressed, she calls on the services of stylist Manuel Mendez, who is based in New York and employed by Parkwood, Beyonce's management company. For the past two years Blue Ivy has been styled by Manuel, rather than sharing a stylist with her mother, who is looked after by Ty Hunter, or her father who is dressed by June Ambrose.

Obviously all three fashion experts talk to each other about their plans — hence the striking monochrome theme at the Grammys on Sunday night where the parents wore black and she wore white.
Adoring daddy Jay-Z — real name Shawn Carter, a reformed drug dealer turned superstar rapper and producer — seems to be keen to launch his tot into the business. She became the youngest person featured in a chart single when the noise of her heartbeat taken from an ultrasound scan featured in his 2012 song Glory.

He used a recording of her first cries on the same track. His 2017 album 4:44 (which failed to win in any of the eight Grammy categories in which it was nominated) included a track titled Blue's Freestyle/We Family. It is a 40-second showcase of his daughter rapping. Some of it is unintelligible but she does shout out 'Boomshakalaka!' although it's a little too soon to say if she has talent.

She has a 'Feat. Blue Ivy' credit on the piano ballad Blue on her mum's 2013 album Beyonce.

Blue Ivy also has a starring turn in Jay-Z's track Family Feud, and is featured in the seven-minute video, released this month.

The song is about the damage caused by his infidelity and in the video he is seen confessing his sins in church while Blue Ivy sits on a pew and mum Beyonce wanders around.

He sings: 'Yeah I'll **** up a good thing if you let me. Let me alone, Becky' a reference to 'Becky with the good hair' who Beyonce said he cheated with in her album Lemonade. Many would question the wisdom of letting a six-year-old star in a music video about the downsides of cheating on your wife. Perhaps it's little wonder she is good at making the shushing movement to Mum and Dad.
A SPECIAL SCHOOL

Nothing but the best is good enough for Blue Ivy, and she attends the Center for Early Education in Los Angeles.

The family moved from New York to the West Coast last year so she could attend — on the urging of Beyonce's close friend Gwyneth Paltrow, who insists there's no better place to raise a family.

The CEE costs between £15,000 and £21,000 a year which Jay-Z, 48, and Beyonce, 36, can easily afford as they are worth a combined £887 million. Founded by psychoanalysts in 1939 it is a progressive school and wildly oversubscribed — 1,000 applicants chase 60 places each year.

The children of Jack Nicholson, Jodie Foster and Barbra Streisand have all attended. Last year Beyonce performed at the school's annual concert — a whopping affair held at the Shrine auditorium which also hosts the Oscars. Not to be outdone, Blue Ivy took centre stage in a ballet routine.
AMAZING SPACES

In September, Beyonce and Jay-Z spent £18.5 million on a home in the Hamptons. The house has seven bedrooms.

They own a huge three-floor apartment in New York and are renting a mansion in Malibu for £306,000 a month that has four pools and bullet-proof glass.

Last summer they were reported to have added their most impressive home yet to their property portfilio when they bought a £95 million pile in Bel Air. It is not known if they have yet moved from their other LA home.

It has eight bedrooms, 11 bathrooms and garage with space for 15 cars. A real estate source said: 'The house is beyond words. No expense was spared.'

Blue Ivy's first home in New York had a £14,000 cot shaped like a royal carriage and her parents spent £50,000 on a Barbie doll encrusted with diamonds.

The family also has a £170 million, 2.5-acre private island off Florida — bought for Beyonce's 29th birthday.

Topless Kim Kardashian holds open a fur coat to expose her milk shakes as she shares series of VERY racy snaps

What is happening here??! well we all know shes a sucker for racy photos. The 37 year old reality star/business mogul stood holding a fur coat open to expose her body, wearing nothing but a skimpy pair of panties.

Before posting the image Kim had blurred the nipple of her exposed breast. Great! As if it makes it any better.
The mother of three posed in a skimpy bikini on the beach for a shot posted earlier on Monday.

The image was inspired by Bo Derek's breakout 1979 10, and featured Kim lounging on the beach in Malibu wearing a bikini.
Like Bo's, her hair was braided in corn rows prompting some to accuse her of cultural appropriation.

Well, Kim on her 'I don't give a f**k' type attitude, who also wore her hair in braids for the later fur coat image. See more photos below

Is this True Love or what? Reminder that True Love Exists

There are many people that say "oh I do believe in true love, in sickness and health , and they have no clue what they are even saying, this here is an example of the taste of real love.
The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:

"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take her of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

How many of you men can do this?

Goodluck Jonathan urges all Nigerians to assist the FG fight against terrorism

Former President Goodluck Jonathan is soliciting with all Nigerians to support the Federal government in this fight against terrorism. Jonathan stated this via his twitter handle while condoling with families of the victims of Boko Haram attack in Adamawa state on Thursday June 17th.
Suspected Boko Haram members stormed a funeral service in Kuda village, Adamawa state, opened fire at the mourners , killing 20 other them who were mostly women.
Isn't this madness under the cloak of a religious war, or some cause? What exactly are they fight for, am sure they don't even know.

Photos: Abuja-Kaduna high speed train project is ready, to fully commence operations in July

The wait is finally over and I believe the abuja residents are breathing their sigh of relief. The Abuja-Kaduna high speed train project is finally ready. The official test-run of the transport system took place yesterday, June 28. It begins full commercial operations once it is inaugurated by President Buhari in July. That cuts down loads of transportation palava. Meanwhile Lagos has waited decades to just complete the tracks.  See more photos below...

Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge rescue England from Wales

Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge rose from the bench to score as England came from behind to defeat neighbours Wales 2-1 in Thursday’s all-British Euro 2016 clash in Lens.

Just as he had in Wales’s opening 2-1 win over Slovakia, Gareth Bale put Chris Coleman’s side ahead with a long-range free-kick that England goalkeeper Joe Hart could only fumble into the net.

But Vardy and Sturridge came on at half-time and after the former had equalised in the 56th minute, the latter smuggled in a stoppage-time winner that fired Roy Hodgson’s men to the top of the group.

Wales are a point back in second place, above Slovakia on head-to-head record, and need to beat Russia in Toulouse on Monday to guarantee one of the two automatic qualifying berths.

A draw against Slovakia in Saint-Etienne will suffice for England and they will approach the game with renewed optimism after belatedly kicking their tournament into gear.

Angry Calvin Harris unfollows Taylor swift, deletes pictures of her on his social media plus tweets skull emojis

It's break up season they say, and this has certainly turned out to be an ugly one.  Perhaps the young man thought or hoped they could get back. Sometimes once shes gone she's gone. Anyways Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend Calvin Harris is apparently unhappy after he saw pictures of her kissing 35 year old British actor, Tom Hiddlestone. Shortly after the photos surfaced, Calvin posted his reaction on twitter saying "Oh boy it's about to go down," followed by three skull emojis. However, just minutes after the tweet was posted, it was deleted.

He seemed pretty upset as he unfollowed Taylor and her brother Austin Swift on Twitter and Instagram and also blocked her fans who noticed it and sent him tweets about their relationship. He then started to delete every photo of Taylor on social media.

Taylor and Calvin broke up two weeks ago and the two seemed to indicate that their split was amicable. Calvin and Taylor confirmed the split by tweeting:

    "The only truth here is that a relationship came to an end & what remains is a huge amount of love and respect."

Calvin has since deleted the break-up tweet after photos of Taylor and Tom having a PDA-filled outing emerged.

Meanwhile Taylor has also removed posts of herself with the Scottish DJ from Instagram.

Taylor Swift and Tom Hiddleston, met at the Met Gala last month, and have reportedly been enjoying  a ‘secret romance’ after her split from Calvin Harris.

The relationship was uncovered when pictures of the pair kissing on a beach near Taylor's home were published by The Sun newpapers
