Mental Health Is An Important Subject. Autism Awareness Day/Month. It’s hard for me to talk about. I have made videos in the past and plan to do more in the future. Something that I want you to understand. Talking about my experiences is not therapeutic for me. Which was one of the reasons I started talking about my own experiences dealing with my own invisible disabilities. I plan on making more videos even if I might have covered a topic in the past. I think some things are worth repeating. I do have some travel and cosplay photography videos coming up! So please stay tuned.
What Makes Someone An Entrepreneur? Is it a job description, or is it a status of success? This question comes up because I have been watching videos from Gary Vaynerchuk & Dan Lok. Both who express their opinions that it is a status of success. Do you agree or do you disagree? YouTube
Do I Need Help Or Am I Just Making Excuses? Just a quick rant about one of the many struggles of having an invisible disability like ADHD, being on the Autistic Spectrum, and other Learning Disabilities. Parents of kids with ADHD, ASD, other Learning Disabilities.and so forth. Please Be An Ally Not An Adversary!

3 Stages Of Understanding One’s Own Invisible Disability It is not always easy for someone with an invisible disability (ADHD, Autistic Spectrum, Learning Disabilities, & so forth) to understand that we have an Invisible Disability. If you are a parent it is tempting to force movement from one stage to The stages are 1. Not being able to understand that we have a disability. This not mean we don’t have a diagnosis. It means that despite having struggles we can’t conceive the idea that we have a disability. 2. Denail/Defense. This is the stage where we understand we have a disability, but remember a very hurtful past, or in some cases might be going through a very low. 3. Is acceptance of the fact that we have a disability and the help and support being offered. There is also the disappointment that that help and support would have never been useful.
I’ve been Slacking Off (Why I Haven’t Been Posting) I set a goal of making a video regarding my mental health/invisible health experience for every Monday. I’ve been slacking off a bit. These videos are not always easy for me to make and, are not always as therapeutic as you might think. #slackingoff I have been posting to my Sports Talk With Troy YouTube Sports Talk With Troy
I am looking forward to Rose City Comic Con Sep 7-9 in Portland Oregon! Photos and vlogs are going to be on this channel! https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8wK4eEZtTRlvr6Bj_37kqw
I am trying to get you caught up to what I have been doing on YouTube.
The Myth Of The Self Made Person Is A Lie! My Autistic Spectrum/ADHD/Learning Disabilities Experience Monday Rather you fight an invisible (and/or visible) disability or are neurologically typical. Everyone needs some help reaching our potential. PARENTS I know it is not easy, but sometimes. It means letting go and not letting yourself be consumed by your fears of the worst possible outcome, and just be there when we ask for direct help. When you are overprotective. The only thing you are protecting us from is success, reaching our potential and happiness. There are times when we need more hands-on help. Let us ask, or at least make sure you are not preventing us from doing and growing.
I am still trying to figure out my format for my blog. I just changed the layout.
I am thinking about going back to one video at a time. Please subscribe. TroyGrudin/biG72media YouTube
Taking Our Meds (Autistic Spectrum ADHD. L.D. Experience Monday) Pretty much everyone who faces the challenge of living with an invisible disability dose some kind of meditating. Rather it is prescribed by a doctor or what is often referred to as Self-Medication. Which comes in many forms.

Depression Kills Why We Keep it Bottled Up (Rant). Sorry for the camera shaking near the end. This is not the first time I have talked about mental health issues. However, it has been a while. Recent events in the world both positive and negative have put me in a position that I fell I need to talk about them more. Mostly the Mauro Ranallo documentary (which at this time I still have not seen) and Kate Spade’s passing. Depression kills and just because you have success and comfort does not mean that you can’t have depression, or that its effects can’t get to you. We often keep our depression bottled up. We keep it bottled up because when we do open up. The response we get is often being more attacked than helpful. We often wind up being more frustrated and feeling more alone than before opening up. Too many people assume that having success and comfort means you can’t be depressed. Success and comfort certainly help. However, they do not prevent depression. Depression often goes hand and hand with other mental health issues. There is often a feeling of isolation that comes with ADHD, Autistic Spectrum issues, and other Learning Disabilities. This often leads to depression. The life expectancy of those of us who live with depression and other mental health issues is much shorter than those of you who don’t. I do not want to be a part of that statistic. Mental health is an important and personal issue for me. However, I am also trying to run a YouTube Channel. I would like to do more happy videos like my cosplay photography. I kind of fell guilty about asking but Please Subscribe. Every little bit of support helps. TroyGrudin YouTube I also have a sports channel that I cal Sports Talk With Troy. Sports Talk With Troy YouTube
Why I fell I Need To Talk About My Mental Health Issues. I often Find talking about my experiences with ADHD, Autistic Issues, and Learning Disabilities. Can open old wounds and be painful. However, I was watching an interview with Mauro Ranallo promoting the documentary about his battle with Bipolar Affective Disorder, and it made me realize that as someone with real-life experience. I need to talk about it more and in a public place. Because I fell there is a lot of information from people who might study mental health issues, but they don’t experience them, and I think they can give out unintentionally bad and harmful information.
