Okay, so there's no alliteration...

I made a couple of these threads I believe two years ago and they went over quite well, so I wanted to give it another shot. If it has a decent reaction, I could do some regularly.

Basically, I know how tough mturk can be, both mentally and physically. We're sitting at our computer desks or in our beds or on the go trying to scrape pennies that don't insult us. For me, I've lived a pretty sedentary lifestyle because of mturk, but one where I hope to rectify after I get back on top of my finances.

Mentally, it's hard too. We have the forums and whatnot and maybe private chat groups and that is all well and good, but some of us (at least for me) live a life mostly in solitude. Now, in my instance, I've gotten a little better at that, but by and large I spend more hours than not at my computer waiting for the next big batch or the next survey that doesn't insult my intelligence when it comes to its hourly.

I've seen it around the forums. Both of them. Some of us have anxiety, depression, OCD, bipolar, all the flavors of the rainbow under this umbrella that is mental health.

So here is my purpose for calling dibs and starting today off right.

Do me a favor, or two:

1) IF YOU ARE COMFORTABLE, share your experience with mental health.

I'm sure the mods have my back when it comes to any stigmatizing or bullying, and I really want this to be a safe space. The beautiful thing about the internet is that there is that extra layer (or even layers) of anonymity. Even if there isn't a face to the name, it can probably be very cathartic just to say this is what I deal with and how I cope or combat it. You can go into whatever detail you feel necessary. It's a really cliche saying, but this is one way to help us realize that we aren't alone, at least when it comes to overcoming this kind of adversity. Share a quote, post a vid, what inspires you? Just a few examples. What are you working on to help cope with it? What has worked and what hasn't? What motivates you to get better? Be kind to yourself, as hard as that may be sometimes.

2) Do something nice for yourself today, and share what you did if you feel comfortable.

I get it. Money can be very tight. But this isn't even about money. Here are some examples. You want to spend a few more minutes in the shower this morning? Do it. You want to sleep in an extra 30 minutes and can be within your means to do so? Do it. Stretch. Just be outside on the patio and take in the surroundings. Write some things down you are grateful for. Tell someone on here that you appreciate them. Do something nice for yourself, and pay it forward if you wish. Give yourself permission to do something nice for yourself.

As for me...

I've had OCD for all of my adult life. I have a lot of flavors of this disorder. I won't get too specific because I don't want to trigger anyone, but these obsessive/intrusive thoughts provide my days with a lot of anxiety, and some days it's very hard for me to concentrate on anything else. I'd like to think I'm better than I was a few years ago, and I really do know what to do in order to really maximize my happiness, I just need to put the pieces together. I probably have mild depression, but that's more of a guess than anything else.

Let's kick ass today.
