    Hi everyone!

    Been a little over a month since I had last done this and wanted to post an update on myself as well as seeing if any folks here want to check in with how they're doing with life or whatever is going on inside the mind.

    Also, if you're not familiar with this, I just encourage people to share their stories of how they themselves have been impacted by mental health in the past and currently. It's a topic that should not be seen as taboo and one that needs to be discusses far more often than it does in the real world. Too often we're told to act tough or to show a tough exterior, but in reality that can only get you so far before internally you start to take a beating. At least, this is my experience anyway.

    I have had OCD for all of my life basically. Each day is another chapter in this ever growing book of struggles that I've been dealing with for many years. That being said, my willpower is strong and I firmly believe that I will conquer this for good one day. I think I deserve a life of happiness, and that's exactly the plan I have in mind for myself. This past weekend was surprisingly tough for me, but the amount of good work helped distract me from what was running a muck in my head. It's a learning experience, and one that I'm appreciative of as it will help me towards total happiness in the future.

    So tell us, with no judgment held from us, what you're going through and maybe what you're doing on a day in, day out basis to improve. For those that are checking in, what has been done in the past 5 or so weeks (or what has happened) that has impacted your life and that you've learned from. All discussions on this topic are welcomed.

    This is a place for not breaking down each other but building up each other. Mental health concerns is something that nearly everyone goes through at some point in their life. I'm sure mods and admins will monitor any averse activity. I have noticed some controversy and some hate going on in the past few days and I just want you all to know that no matter who it is, I think of you all as my turking family. You all have helped me, and I hope that I've helped all of you.

    So that's the plan of the theme of this thread. Tell each other what's going on, with no judgment. We're a family here, non-traditional or otherwise. I know turking can be a grind, but the interactions with each other doesn't have to be to the mind. You might learn that someone is going through the exact same thing or has the exact same condition you're dealing with. This can open up a whole new realm of positivity in your lives, and I really hope that you all appreciate these check-ins as much as I do.

    Let's kick ass today. I believe in every single one of you.

    This is a strange HIT, lots of text entry required and definitely not worth it per hour and the guidance in the hit is fairly poor, but the 24 hour timer is nice because you can use this to fill in if you don't have anything else to do.

    IDK, probably 30 minutes, but I did it over 3 hours here and there, so maybe worth it?
