TheraRun I take it for my Sanity & Do it 4 Da Love of It..

Powerful Relief from your most stressful bouts with depression or bipolar symptoms use TheraRun on a regular basis.  TheraRun can curb multi-symptoms that lead to you to misinterpret your present temporary situation.

You don't have to continue to be knocked around in the ring of life.  You can take control with TheraRun and stop getting sucker punched.  I'm not only a TheraRun Ambassador I'm a customer.

We all have our own personal battles and those close to us are well aware of them.  The recent passing of Robin Williams and Phillip Seymour Hoffman caused me to realize how grateful I am for TheraRun. 

A few weeks back I jotted random thoughts down and sent them to Yvonne-(my sister) who over the years has become my sounding board.  I love that lady!!! 

I entitled the piece "Thoughts from the Throne". Don't worry I'm not going to post a pic of that moment in time.  Lol... Just a view from today's 19mile run.  My trail Rocks!!!

Back to "Thoughts from the Throne", I got a secret I can't tell but, sometimes it feels like I'm living in hell.  When jokes are made I cringe wondering if they know about the secret within. Does it show up on my face?  If I say something will I be tagged in disgrace?

But, am I scared or ashamed to tell about the hell?  Funny when a celebrity takes their life we're left shocked and amazed standing around in a daze wondering why? 

Then we quip, they must have been hurting.  Depression, Bipolar Mental Health are real; it's not a roller coaster ride at an amusement park.  It's an internal ride that's dismal at times which many travel alone every moment of their lives. 

It's chic to talk about mental health for a few days then it's back to the crazy chatter.  Normal ain't for me.  I wonder if they know about my secret.  I find therapy on the trail or on the road.  I ignore the chatter, I prefer to listen to the pitter patter of my feet keeping time with the beat.

Today's run was sponsored by TheraRun, fueled by Nuun/GU and dedicated to everyone that struggles with mental health issues, just know there's hope.  There's no reason to be ashamed we were created this way.

Disclaimer "TheraRun" alone may not be enough to treat your symptoms if that's the case you should seek professional assistance.  

"TheraRun" I take it for my sanity and do it for the love of it.
