Sharing this fabulous illustration of what it looks like to be in your thoughts and observing your thoughts.

When we are in our thoughts it can feel like constant motion where we are having to work very hard to keep going and feel less control. When we are observing our thoughts we have control of where we take our thoughts next.

Today is INTERNATIONAL OVERDOSE AWARENESS DAY. It's important for our mental health community. An estimated 65% of people living with mental illness also suffer from a co-occurring substance use condition. I am wishing courage and strength to those struggling with addition and condolences to those who have lost a loved one to overdose.

A little knowledge can save a life. In total, nearly 841,000 people have died since 1999 from a drug overdose. In 2019, 70,630 drug overdose deaths occurred in the U.S. Opioids were involved in 49,860 overdose deaths in 2019 (70.6% of all drug overdose deaths) - Opioids is the most common cause of overdose. The best ways to prevent opioid overdose deaths are to improve opioid prescribing, reduce exposure to opioids, prevent misuse, and treat opioid use disorder. Signs of an overdose may include: Small, constricted “pinpoint pupils”, Falling asleep or loss of consciousness, Slow, shallow breathing, Choking or gurgling sounds, Limp body and Pale, blue, or cold skin. Naloxone – a non-addictive, life-saving drug that can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose when administered in time. Many pharmacies carry naloxone. Know the facts - it may save you, a loved one, a neighbor, a stranger. Opioid overdose is preventable.
