Sharing about my first ever #seizure at TED - in line with this year's International #Epilepsy Day theme, Putting Epilepsy in the Picture. .

Every year, across the globe, a population as big as 80% of Nairobi, 2.4 Million people, are diagnosed with #epilepsy and they like me go through exclusion and discrimination. I keep the conversation going so that these people have a point of reference and a constant reminder that they will be alright, that they need to pull down the walls of self stigma, adhere to doctor's directions as they get positive alternative tools and skills to cope...I keep the conversations going so that those without the diagnosis can have a point of reference and a constant reminder that it is alright to engage with us, that they need to pull down the walls of exclusion and discrimination and we, just like them, can handle what life throws at us.

S A F E S P A C E S ::: I had the pleasure of working with this amazing sickle cell super warrior and her team today as I walked them through creating safe spaces (aka psychosocial/support group) for their members and giving them tips on how to deal with some common #mentalhealth issues that they might come across in their membersโ€Ž...โ€ŽTY @queenlea_elโ€Ž for inviting me to your space and allowing me to be part of this journey, can't wait to see how the groups progress over the months.

PS::: I forgot to tell y'all the key ingredient in making the groups tick is to HAVE FUN!!! .โ€Ž

After a week of extreme cold and short days, I am glad to be back home, mixing up impossible things in the name of #ThisVegetarianLife and enjoying the gift of just being...day 73/ #100DaysofMentalHealth is about the little everyday things that make your #mentalhealth strive...look out for them this week, better yet intentionally create them and take time to soak in them...it could be a person, a routine, a place, right now it is 6 o'clock that has some light and this green #pumpkinsoup :) whatever it is recognise it and be grateful for it .

Only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home ~ Carpenters ----

My best lines are by MDQ;
Let's talk about it,
I've been about it,
Dreamed about it,
Work so hard I became about it
Kuhustle ni constant
