  • This post is about two crazy people I know.
    on Jun 8, 2013
    I don’t have many friends because most of them don’t like it when I tell them they need a therapist. I am going to talk about two “crazy” people I know in this blog post.  And I will start now. To be honest, I’m pretty hard on peo...
  • Mental Illness, Snooki, Dylan Klebold, Bullies and Eric Harris were mentioned in this blog post
    on Jun 4, 2013
    I’ve been thinking about posting something for a few days now because I know people are on the edge of their seats wanting to know more hahaha (I wish… I’m no Snooki).     Snooki with her "best selling" book... getting a free pas...
  • I'm fine with admitting Adam Lanza, the Tsarneav brothers, James Holmes, Jared Loughner, Ted Kacynski, etc. are or could have been mentally ill.
    on May 20, 2013
    Hi, I’ve been busy lately….trying to make more money and have a social life.  I worked on this book for a straight 5 months and I’m still not done but I realized I cut myself off from everyone.  It's just the curse of an aspiring writ...
  • James Holes, Adam Lanza, Christopher Dorner Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarneav are all the same.
    on Apr 27, 2013
    I decided to write a book in July of 2012 about my arrest and how relevant it is to any domestic terrorist. Although I was never extreme, I was heading down that road and I honestly didn’t care who I hurt in the process because I didn’t know how...
  • This will probably be in my book...
    on Apr 17, 2013
    The Nineties ended with violent blasts of gunfire and pipe bombs by two ordinary, American teens. It only took 49 minutes. That day’s images were seared into the memories all of us old enough to remember. Meanwhile, the story was beaten into t...
  • Tragedy Culture Rant In Lieu of Boston Attack
    on Apr 15, 2013
    “We could do it during the third week of April to out do the others,” he said. “What do you mean?” someone asked.“For some reason, we remember anniversaries of killings.  Three high-profile massacres occurred the third week of April in...
  • Is High School Horrible Everywhere?!?
    on Apr 11, 2013
    In reading news worthy stories I came over this and it got me thinking: Is high school a horrible, festering, fratastic, jocky douchy place of sameness where people who stand-out and want to fit in get attacked?   I mean, I was picked...
  • Part of a letter I felt the need to write because I was told guys won't date me "because I write about being crazy.."
    on Apr 4, 2013
    Just sharing parts of it... not who it's to because that would be mean. But this was actually a good way to get more organized and make me feel better about something that put a dang rain on my parade. "The headlines I write on my blog are used...
  • I had awful nightmares as a kid
    on Apr 2, 2013
    I don't think I'll use this even though I thought it'd be a good idea to write about it for my book. That said, I was one of those kids with Bipolar Disorder that experienced horrible nightmares and terrors. Although, in recovery I rar...
  • A Great Therapist is Worth the $$$
    on Mar 26, 2013
    I had a therapy session today and it was totally worth it.  My shrink says that because I’ve recently become so passionate and involved in mental illness awareness—I know a lot more about my disorder than most people do. She's right, I am a...
  • Spree-Shooters= #FameWhores
    on Mar 19, 2013
    I was exposed to a the 10th anniversary coverage of the invasion of Iraq by the Bush administration (which is terrible all in itself) but I was also exposed to this T.J. Lane lunatic as well at work. For those of you who don’t know, it’s an...
  • Rapist Aliens Attacking Children and Abducting Politicians (trying to sum up a manic episode I had)
    on Mar 16, 2013
    For some reason, I am mostly reminded that I have a mental illness when the seasons start to change.  It’s something I always seem to forget until I have a manic or depressive episode (or both) immediately after daylight savings time.  Li...
  • Foster the People: Art About Gun Control I Can Get Behind
    on Mar 14, 2013
    Sometimes, I have a hard time understanding why celebrities get involved with politics but I finally found a group of people I can get behind in reference to gun violence and gun control. Now, I know I am behind on the times with Foster the People bu...
  • Congressman Graves didn't get his intern to write me back this time (I think) but I'm still NOT going to vote for him when I get the chance.
    on Mar 8, 2013
    I wrote thisand he responded with this... for your reading pleasure.  I'm done now, Georgia politicians make me realize that there is no hope for the human race (comedy blog which you can also find on facebook) see ya.March 8, 2013    ...
  • Open Letter to Marilyn Manson
    on Mar 6, 2013
    Dear Marilyn Manson … if that is your real name. Oh wait, it isn’t- it’s Brian Warner:I'd like to take the time to say, I appreciate you for speaking out against the dogma of organized religion in the late 90’s.  That was really cool bec...
  • Possible Preface: Conquering My Inner Monster
    on Mar 4, 2013
    I know I've posted something like this before... but this is better.  I obviously, don't believe I am exactly like Eric Harris or Dylan Klebold, now.  I am quite the opposite but at one time, I needed a push in the right direction to realiz...
  • Letters to Georgia Congressmen about cuts to Mental Healthcare take 4
    on Feb 27, 2013
    In reference to what's going on in Washington lately I tried yet again to send Georgia lawmakers letters.   I sent the same one to Johnny Isakson and Saxby Chambliss.   As you can see towards the end, I was a little annoyed b...
  • I Shot A Gun At A Tree
    on Feb 25, 2013
    I picked this shotgun up and shot it at a tree to make a statement: It was my first time ever firing a real-life gun that could potentially fatally harm something. I expected to feel more powerful like a warlord, tyrant, rich, oil tycoon or a preside...
  • Music Can Help the Psycho
    on Feb 19, 2013
    When I was crazy- music had a big impact on my life and it meant something entirely different to me when I was in my teens up until my mid 20’s than it does now. I’m not sure how to explain it; but I loved angsty, disturbing music when I was goin...
  • I Present to you Beth Miller McCain... you're welcome
    on Feb 12, 2013
    I know the few who read my blog only read it because I write a lot about the mental illness I struggle with and what hijinks I got into before I got the help I needed to NOT be crazy. Crazy people are so in right now.  BUT even though I know I h...
