On November 15, 2017, Rapper “Lil Peep” passed away on his tour bus. The cause of death was believed to be from an overdose on Xanax pills and psilocybin mushrooms.
Apparently, management assumed he was just resting hours before a show. Considering the fact that, Peep’s manager checked on him twice and he was breathing fine. Until, management checked a third time and noticed he was unresponsive. Peep was pronounced dead at the scene.
Subsequent to his death, Peep received a lot of love via social media. Fans, family, and friends made It a point to pay their respects to the fallen star.
Peep had posted a series of disturbing captions, song title’s, and post on his Instagram page prior to his alleged overdose. Primary examples, “When I die you’ll love me “. Another was a post of him attempting to drop what many think was a Xanax pill into his mouth. Also, a song entitled “Better off (Dying), on his album called “Come over when you’re sober part 1”.
With all that has been presented, here are a couple of questions I believe we should all take into consideration:
- Why do we ignore literal cries for help? - Who did peep have in his circle? - When are we going to stop glorifying self destruction and start preserving lives?
Prior to Lil Peeps death, I had never heard of him or his music. Therefore, before I touched this topic, I made it my duty to get to know Peep as a person and as an artist.
I was able to do this through his music, social media, and fan base. All aspects are significant. They all play a large part in his cry for help, yet lack of support, which unfortunately caused the unnecessary to occur.
For decades society has glorified misusing and abusing drugs. We have turned It into such a fad that when someone is sending out an SOS; we find It comical or someone could be literally dying right in front of us, yet we blatantly ignore.
The idea of overdose is praised so high in music, because the industry thrives off of death. Not only does sex sell, but death does as well. It has been proven, when someone is sending out an SOS and plenty of red flags nothing is done until it’s too late.
Even fans fixate over the abuse of drugs. You know why? Because 9/10 it’s teenagers that can’t get their hands on hardcore drugs and even if they had the shot, they are not about that life.
Therefore, they vicariously live through those in the public eye, in order to entertain their imagination. Which then drives an idol to psychosis, because they are killing themselves by trying to keep up a persona.
Well because of this, people begin to get what’s real and what’s fake mixed up. But, Peep wasn’t making anyone read between the lines.
He blatantly said “I need help” and on top of that he sent out so many red flags. Therefore, we should have been able to differentiate and get this young man what he needed vs watch him suffer in order to fulfill our own fleshly desires.
No matter how many times we go through this, death is the only thing that can wake us up. Yet, we’re only awake for but so long. Because, Once the storm blows over, we all go about our business and stop being involved, until It happens again.
We all need to ask ourselves:
- Who is in my circle? - Do the people in my circle take my physical and mental health into consideration?
Because, those that claim to love and care about you will do everything in their power to assist you as much as possible.
Just to set the record straight, The goal here is not to bash anyone in relation to Peep. I am just saying, let this be a lesson to all fighting in the same battle that he fought in.
You do not have to stand behind a wall because everyone else is blinded by a fad.
Speak up this is your life on the line. Leave everyone ignorant in the dust. You must preserve your life and conquer this battle yourself if others want to be silly.
Lastly, let’s not only focus on our celebrities. This starts in our communities and is glorified through music that our little ones hear on a daily. Then, that is transmitted into our babies brains. Let us all keep this in mind.
With all that’s been said, we are to spread love and peace within our communities, making sure that everyone is taken care of. Remember, this is our duty.
The Journey To Awakening
Recently, I stumbled upon a very encouraging video on @ReignGlobal Instagram page. She was speaking about the voyage to awakening. In this video she spoke on how ones can find themselves and the beauty of overcoming attachments. She explains how breaking the cycle of consistently needing to be in front of someone and enjoining your own space instead can assist you in life as a whole.
This message means so much to me. For a long time I struggled with the fear of "loss". That fear began to consume me and affect me in my everyday life. I thought that attaching myself to individuals would assist me in diminishing my fear but it only made it worse. One day I realized in order to grow and/or move forward in life:
1. I must not allow fear to devour me 2. Just because I love an individual or multiple individuals, that does not mean I must consume all of their time and energy
3. I must start living for myself and developing My own experiences
Abiding by these guidelines, have assisted me in finding true happiness, alleviating my depression, and my journey to awakening!
At this point, my health section should just be titled "For Women Only". I do nothing on this page but engage my viewers by touching on controversial and important topics based around women's health. Lets not forget to add how I consistently glorify child birth and the beauty of motherhood. I hope you all are with me here, if not get it together because women are life!
Only covering my beautiful breast because Instagram has given me enough chances.
Society amazes me with its fear of nudity & any form of self expression displayed outside of its fictional guidelines.
I choose to embrace rather than to hide.
I refuse to live my life full of anxiety due to fear that a stranger will judge me from the outside.
I am not a hippie I am just healthy.
On Sunday night A friend of mine told me about this gorgeous waterfall located in Jarretsville, Maryland.
The very next day, my boyfriend and I were off, therefore we decided to take the trip. We definitely had the time of our lives while we were there and will be back again.
We love to swim at the pool but it is nothing like swimming in natural water along with gods glorious creations.
Nature is so good for the body&soul. I recommend this location to those who would love to experience resuscitation, resurrection, and revitalization.
Until next time Kilgore!
Mental Health Checkup
I questioned life last night, although I promised myself not to do that I did it anyway and caused grief upon someone other than myself. This week has been the worst week, depression is the most frustrating illness because your still able to highly function therefore your aware of what's going on. Unlike schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, etc . Bipolar depression is an illness where your in the know and your aware of the fact that your paralyzed therefore it's difficult to undergo such pain.
The frustration I go through when I'm in a funk is so hard to explain, I literally begin feeling like I need to be knocked out in order to delete the feeling of such mental dehydration. Literally the littlest things turn into petty quarrels. The sight of a roach can turn into me breaking glass in my home and feeling like no one loves me. I say that to say this is not easy. One thing leads to the next and you begin to lose control.
Through the course of my little life, I have learned as a humans we have more control than we think. I always preach about not allowing your handicaps to consume you but that is easier said than done. Please keep your heads up ladies and gentlemen and continue to search for the light at the end of the tunnel.
The stigma on mental health in our community must end. So many of our brothers and sisters suffer with major depression,schizophrenia, multiple personality disorder, etc. As a people we shame or ignore ones that deal with such disorders instead of providing the necessary help that can initially save a life and spare someone from mental dehydration. Let's work on spreading love and preventing seclusion.
Indulge Bath & Body
For months I have been dealing with Vaginitis. Many have no clue what that is so let me fill you in. Vaginitis is usually caused by a change in the normal balance of vaginal bacteria, an infection, or reduced estrogen levels. Symptoms include an unusual vaginal discharge, itching or irritation, painful urination, and pain during intercourse.
I have experienced all of this and I was in need of a cure. I talked to my doctors but of course they did nothing as usual. Therefore, I knew I could resort to Mother Nature.
I stumbled upon a page on Instagram that sells products that are all based around assisting women and their vaginal needs. No I'm not talking about sex toys. I'm talking about treatment products that are used to cure and restore the woman's vagina.
This is a topic most women wont even begin to discuss due to fear and discomfort.But actually your biggest fear should be neglecting your vagina because that can lead to complications in the future. Your body is a temple and it is your job to provide and protect it from head to toe and everything in between.
Check out www.indulgebathnbody.com/ For strengthening, restoration, and treatment for everything in between!
For those that do not know I suffer from major depression.
If you are in a relationship with someone suffering from mental dehydration and they have episodes from time to time give them their space when it occurs.
Interfering will actually make matters worse.
These episodes are only natural therefore allow them to go through the motions.
I thank my boyfriend everyday for sticking by my side and supporting me through every mental episode and/or break down.
Depression is a mountain to climb but trust me you will end up on top, do not allow it to consume you.
Power Of The Tits
In love with this beautiful mother and her precious baby. #Powerofthetits
Breast Feeding Shaming
I recently just saw a post on Facebook about how women across the world are being ridiculed for breast feeding in public.
I have honestly had enough. I may sound like a broken record speaking out on society's unwritten laws, but I could care less what people think about me at this point.
This has gone to far and makes the least bit of sense, especially because a new born baby is involved.
If you are out and your child is crying and in need of nutrients the last thing your going to do is run through a crowd of people to go into a smelly bathroom and still put a cover over your breast to complete the mission.
There is no law saying that a woman can not feed her baby in public, therefore how dare you push your views on someone else.
This young woman isn't pulling out her nipple for you suck it so mine your business.
To Shave Or Not To Shave?
When I went for my annual check up summer 2016 the doctor was very unhappy I shaved my pubic hair. He began to lecture me about how hair grows on your body for a reason.
This made me want to do extensive research on reasons why not to shave my pubic hair.
Shaving or even waxing your pubic hair can cause a viral infection.
These self infections are caused by scratching skin irritated by shaving.
If your partner has a problem with that, it's time to make a "D" appointment with someone else.
Your health is way more important and it's not worth risking.
This health tip may be outside of the box but ladies you all will thank me later!
Bacteria Vaginosis is very common,causes vaginal discharge, and can cause a noticeable smell. That's a big no no in the bedroom! We definitely don't want our partner to smell a foreign odor, especially not for long. Here are some tips on how to treat the infection and get rid of that horrid smell:
- Eat yougurt, this can restore the Vaginas normal PH level
- Bathe in Apple Cider Vinegar and Salt, this will fight off toxins and bacteria
- Don't douche! Most women want to go all up in and under there once they find out about their infection, this can actually make it worse. Using feminine products to clean your vagina can infect it. The vagina cleans itself and doctors say that most infections are self induced due to douching.
- Wear cotton undies, bye bye lace 👋🏾
- See a doctor, they can diagnose you properly and prescribe an antibiotic if necessary
Mind Body And Soul
The True Key Success
Life has already taught me so much and I still have a ways to go. One thing I have learned is that your health just isn't about how fit you are or how many hours hit put in the gym, but it is also about your emotional and mental well being.
By that I mean being happy. If you aim to focus on the positive rather than the negative each and everyday you will find yourself in a much better space. This in the end will allow you to breathe and will lead to a much better life.
