RAK!!!!! CONGRAGULATIONS DISNEYDAVIDEMT!!!!! You were selected by random number generator otherwise known as MrS!!! The Little Mermaid Compact Mirror! πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šMay is Mental Illness Awareness Month and many of you know my MW story and how I am adamant about breaking the stigma associated with Mental Illness. In celebration of me graduating from my Understanding Depression class tonight and learning new tools allowing me to accept so many changes in my life recently I'm excited to offer this. I am simply requesting that you enter only for yourself, have more than 25 points and of course, the big request that's on the HONOR system, is to please visit the www.NAMI.org website to educate yourself, help yourself or someone you love in regards to Mental Illness. Feel free to share something you found of interest if you like and please use your manners and US only please. If you are a newer MWer, feel free to read my MW story or ask me questions here or you can DM me. Thank you all as always for your awesome support and this RAK ends on May 31st!!! Good luckπŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

It is now starting to be believed that 2 in 4 people suffer from  depression that seriously complicates their life.  I take care of a bipolar/schizophrenic/mentally disabled brother and the strain it puts on the person and caregivers is intense. Just trying to get him more help is seriously stressing me out right now.  I have 3 siblings out of 6 with this, and those siblings with children have half of their kids with it so it does impact a family, plus my father had it with no medication so life was not a beach growing up.  but it is time we all educate ourselves and accept that we are all different.  It used to be that everyone made fun of anyone with any mental illness or disability and I am so glad people do not do this as much but we still need more progress.  if you ever have a chance to read about or watch the old movie about francis farmer, you will see that many of these people really want to live "normal" lives, and need the help to do so which NAMI and several other organizations raise funds for. Half of our vets from recent tours and vietnam are supposed to have a serious mental disease.  Please, Next time you see an adult (and sometimes children) "losing it"  just say a prayer for them, try not to stare, if alone offer some water  and know how blessed you are to be able to think clearly most days.  I have multiple medical issues but I know they are nothing compared to how hard a life it can be until you learn how to live with your mental or psychological illness. you know I love ya schnooks, kudos on taking the class, stay strong and John too!!  hope we see each other soon, miss you guys! - secretagentangel  1936.3 #75 9:19PM
Many (((Hugs)))  to you my sweet friend. Don't forget to take care of yourself too. I know it's hard with the many urgencies that come with being a caregiver.  - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 9:39AM
secretagentangel I love knowing that when I post something about this you have so much to offer and help educate.  Especially in how to help. Don't break out your camera phones, ask if you can help get them to a quite place, and stay calm. And God bless the caregivers and family members for all they have to deal with it. You are amazing and please take care of yourself!!!! Big hugs! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:49PM
I love this post! The stigma behind mental illness is awful!! My nephew is schizophrenic /bipolar/ADHD... Sadly he didn't get the support he needed from his maternal side (the took off with him when he was 6) and we most recently were able to spend some time with him this last year. It breaks my hear that's he's now an adult and he's trying to manage as best as he can with what he knows now. Sadly, my family hasn't been able to keep him here in our town due to him wanting to go back to a familiar area. All we can do is pray that he is taking his meds and getting what he needs.  - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1249.5 #126 2:47PM
I just want to say while the kind words are touching and appreciated, @secretagentangel is THE person I owe my strength to be able to start sharing about my Mental Illness. Β She and I met through a RAK for the Candlelight Processional that she and her brother shared with hubby and I. God had His hand in this and it was evident from the beginning. We were talking like old friends and her brother was opening up to hubby and then I shared how I'm bipolar 2 (less intense the bipolar 1) and suffer from severe depression and anxiety and I'll never forget, LOL, she turned to her brother and said Michele is bipolar too! Like it was the coolest thing in the world. Β I could count the people on one hand who knew at that time but something about her beautiful heart and warm and loving embrace of ALL people made me feel at ease and I knew that I was going to have a friend for life. So while I appreciate your kind words and thank you so much for them, THANK YOU SAA!!! You helped give me a new journey and way to accept it. Β It's amazing to see the change that is happening in people's views and watching other's seeking help. Β You all are my inspiration for letting me share and accepting me and each other that have shared here! And congratulations to all of you who took steps in your own lives or helped others. God bless you all and much love. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:28PM
secretagentangel love you so much! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:29PM
You are such a beautiful person inside and out!!! You have come so far in your journey. I adore you sweet girl πŸ’š keep on being you and fighting against this illness. 😘 - PixiePirateMaid  331.4 #693 9:36PM
I saw this yesterday and it made me tear up, but I could not reply till I found another computer.  You are very strong, and I use you and other people we know who still work full time and are social  as examples to my brother when he does not understand things.  you two were so nice to him, his disabilities are very hard, and the mental illness complicates it because he does not understand a lot about it.  but it was so funny, you had not posted much, but I liked you immediately, and it kept going through my mind that I wondered if you would win the tix and you did!!  and it was fun, though when I told you and john my story, I think I kind of shocked you because you both looked at me kind of like... wait, what happened to you??  but it made me feel great to know you guys were ok with all my medical junk and what my brother is going through so it shows God wanted us together!!  I don't know how you do it, trying to do all your work and all the rest you do.  so you and John stay healthy too!!!  and someday people will start excepting the MI better, when you realize your hairdresser, your plumber, your accountant, your pastor, anyone and more could have so much they are dealing with, it really makes me so proud to know you and all of you who are fighting this every moment!!  hope to see you soon of course!!  love love love - secretagentangel  1936.3 #75 4:55PM
Stop making me cry!!!  - QueenEmilizle  390.5 #537 10:21PM
secretagentangel Going back to work was a huge challenge. I was constantly overwhelmed and even my trainer was honest and said she didn't think I'd make it. I added two therapists to get me through and still are getting me through and fortunately I had just finished getting my meds on a regular pattern. I wanted this job so bad and knew I had to reach out for 24/7 resources. I have an after hours # I can call too. I've had one week I was too depressed to go to work and my therapist put me in check so fast. LOL Plus my supervisor knows my situation and her best friend is bipolar so she gives me tools for work too. I'm blessed and just doing the work and beyond great flu that I don't pay $.01 because we have double coverage and mine is employer paid and John pays about $20 a month for our coverage. So for those out there you have to fight to want to live as normal as possible but you can do it. Tons of love to you dear friend for all your support.  - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 10:32PM
No need to add me for the rak, Congratulations!! I too graduated from my classes last year.  I also had my last therapy session and closed my file last week.  Thank you for bringing awareness out to MW! You rock girlfriend!! - LuvsTigger  1494.0 #101 11:28AM

πŸŽˆπŸ’šCongratulations on the completion of your class! No need to add me, just want to say thank you for sharing your story & your heart with the rest of us. You are a wonderful lady & I'm so glad I can call you friend!  πŸ’šπŸ— - FrankenweenieVelinee  2289.3 #58 9:10PM
Thank you! My silly Mom was teasing me while we were having lunch when you met her because I told her I completed the first course so now I get to go to the second session and she asked if I have to be extra depressed for that class. LOL She's such a dork. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:32PM
sounds like something my mom would say too!!!:D - secretagentangel  1936.3 #75 4:56PM
You inspire me to be a better person everyday!  Thank you for you an awesome friendship and all around just being a great person!  I've probably been to the NAMI site and directed more people to it more times than I can ever count.  Would you consider adding me for my wife (or do I have to use it?) πŸ˜‰  thank you my dear!!  - DisneyDavidEMT  2305.4 #56 9:12PM
She inspired me to be a better person too!  - goofymom2boys  1466.8 #104 9:14PM
Added and I've realized I can't look at these comments unless at home and after work. You're both so sweet and inspire me. Love you guys! 😘 - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:57PM
No need to add me. I just wanted to say congratulations on completing your class. What a wonderful way to encourage those to seek help. Giving people resources and understanding is a wonderful gesture. Many would not be as open as you, but wanting to help others is what it is all about. - RadiatorSprings4Ever  1161.2 #141 9:20PM
Thank you, and I really appreciate that. 😘 - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:58PM

Thank you for reading it! πŸ’š - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:59PM
Please add me! Ariel is my favorite so of course I would love this. But more importantly, my mom is affected my mental illness and depression. She has FINALLY broken through and left behind an emotionally and mentally abusive relationship and is starting to work on repairing herself and rebuilding her life. Thank you for sharing your story and congratulations on completing your understanding depression class. You are an inspiration!! ❀️❀️❀️ - WirTANenAtDisney  115.7 #3233 9:23PM
That is wonderful!!! I wish her and all of you all the best. It won't happen over night and there's bad days and good days but she's making progress. Big hugs to you all! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:35PM
Thank ou! Yes she has good days but at this point more bad days. But I am seeing a tiny bit of progress day by day. Her being with me son (her only grand baby) each day I think is her saving grace. She says everyday, without him she wouldn't be here :) - WirTANenAtDisney  115.7 #3233 11:10PM
Would you please add me and thank you! Thank you for opening up to us. It takes a very strong person to do that and by what I've seen, you are such a person. Congratulations on finishing your class. Now, you are one step further in gaining control...you can do it! Thank you for your generosity 😊 - LaBelleParis  1273.9 #121 10:15PM
Thanks for the encouragement! Added! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:35PM
I haven't met you in person, but I'm sure you're quite the lady :) - LaBelleParis  1273.9 #121 9:38PM
πŸ’šπŸ’šno need to add me just wanted to say congratulations for completing your class and I think you're so brave and wonderful for sharing your story!!  My son suffers from severe anxiety and it is a daily struggle for us as a family.  We're trying our best but I still worry so much about him. - MinnieMousewife  886.5 #187 10:24PM
I'm so sorry and I know the worry factor because I see it from my Mom and she doesn't understand it all. Feel free to DM me as I had to really put a handle on my anxiety lately with my new job and I may have a few suggestions. Big hugs and hang in there. - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 9:39PM
That is so sweet of you, thank you!!  Really appreciate your kindness. 😘❀️ - MinnieMousewife  886.5 #187 9:48PM

Added and I hope whatever is the situation you'll be able to find help. Big hugs! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 10:00PM
No need to add me but I just needed to say I'm thankful to you any time I am in the parks and even elsewhere because you gave me the courage to speak about my own mental health. There is more to it but it's a start that I wouldn't have made without you. End the stigma attached to mental health! You are almost guaranteed to know and love someone who is suffering. - missmimi90  2002.4 #69 12:38AM
I love you and I think of you every single time I go on Peter Pan. You are so brave and now you are sharing and helping others! 😘😘😘 - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 10:02PM
I try to pass on my courage to others who might be struggling but my ability to do so is cause of you!! Love you Schnookies! - missmimi90  2002.4 #69 5:00PM
Please do not add me I just wanted to say congratulations for completing your class and I think you're so courageous and smart! Thank you for the info on NAMI. I will be recommending it to a friend!!! - Boundin  612.9 #307 12:57AM
Thank you so much. I was so silly at work because I was all excited to go to a depression class. LOL I hope this helps your friend. - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 10:03PM
You're welcome. I am glad you are so excited about your depression class! LOL😹 It's fun to be silly, laughter is the best medicine! - Boundin  612.9 #307 10:53PM
Thank you for this info as I will be passing this along to a friend. I am so very proud of you for finishing your class. You're an incredibly strong, intelligent, and loving woman and I'm so proud to call you my friend. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š - DisneyGrandma  864.7 #198 8:36AM
I hope this helps your friend. You know I think the world of you and feel the same way. You're amazing and you rock a mean bikini! - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 10:04PM
You already know you hold a special place in my heart, and the hearts of my family😍 I'm so proud to call you friend, and I'm also VERY proud of what you have accomplished in educating yourself and others about mental health issues, and the stigmas that surround them. My father works in mental health, and my friend works for NAMI. I'm very educated on mental health issues, and it makes me so happy that people are starting to recognize symptoms and get the help they need. Hugs to you my dear for keeping the word out there in such a positive way! 😘😘Can you please add me for @@@DisneyDavidEMT.☺️ Thanks! - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1249.5 #126 8:43AM

up2SD.org is a site run by San Diego County. It is both a resource from those affected with mental illness and as an education/awareness tool too. I love how much they promote this down Β here in San Diego. I have to admit sometimes I get so so frustrated trying to educate people about mental illness. I get that they are blessed with not suffering but I hate hearing "they just need to think positive!" or "they are just lazy or not focused" ! Β Hopefully in the next generation or so we will see less ignorance and more empathy. Bravo to you and your loved ones for finding the strength to get the most effective resources for you.Β  - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 9:35AM
Thank you so much for the info! Yes, it's amazing how many don't realize this is a medical condition. If you had broken your leg you would have to treat it and possibly go to therapy. It's not easy  hearing get over when you know you can't. - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 11:24PM
You are such an amazing woman and I am glad to know you! Please add me and I'm going to go and visit the website. - DisneyOnesie  621.2 #304 10:35AM
Back at you girlfriend!!! Added and enjoy the site. I get sucked into it. LOL - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 11:25PM
As a marriage and famy therapist intern I love this post so much! We need to spread awareness and break through the stigma! A lot of clients are embarrassed to seek help and that makes me sad. I love what I do and out mental health is as important as our physical health! ❀️ - minnieMisty  275.2 #1046 10:21PM
Thank you and that's wonderful to hear. People don't know that they don't have to live in the pain they are in and I know for myself I just figured this was part of my normal personality until I sought help. - MrsSchnooks  3184.9 #39 11:28PM

Congratulations! On your class and for all your work on helping yourself. It takes a lot of courage to tell your story but its great for people to know they are not alone. Please add me.

As I get older, I've noticed my anxiety is getting worse. My husband doesn't understand it. I almost had a panic attack last week for absolutely no reason, so in some ways, I don't understand it. I'm glad to have heard your story and know I'm not alone in dealing with this. 😘 - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  676.4 #271 10:22PM
😘 hugs! My oldest daughter  has severe anxiety too. So does my 12 year old (I think it's hand in hand with his autism). People just don't understand unless they have been there. I used to suffer panic attacks when I was in my late 20's and early 30's, but they have pretty much subsided... I will still get that occasional attack, but not like before.  - 2BeignetOrNot2Beignet  1249.5 #126 2:49PM

Disneyland unFORECAST (BETA) is here! Top MouseWaiters giving you the rundown of what's happening at the Disneyland Resort. The unFORECAST now has its own page on the web www.unFORECAST.com

unFORECAST for the week of July 27, 2015
Crowd levels have been rising since Disneyland's official birthday on July 17th. Looking back at MouseWait's Historical Crowd Index (available in our new MagicPlan iOS Calendar), this week last year averaged in the high 70s, which is light for summer crowds. When temperatures rise, the crowd does thin out a bit (especially Annual Passholders)--and this week should be a hot one with forecasts in the 90s through Sunday. We feel that the crowd level will be similar to last year (high 70s on the Crowd Index) and the heat will keep some away. To get a real-time look at crowd levels, check the MouseWait app for Crowd Index averages and wait times. - Admin Jul 28, 2015 9:36AM



We have always noticed that Saturdays are better than Sundays! We always come on the weekend and say we want to leave at dinner time on Sunday, but always leave by 11-12 because there are so many people. We love Saturday!! - 1Princess3Princes  487.8 #404 5:39PM
I agree. I think it has to do with most passes being blocked - PoohSizedGuy  18.6 #7110 11:53PM
Saturday's rule! One of the perks of a premium pass!  - snappy  381.2 #552 7:32AM
I love these posts!  I do have a question/request/suggestion...is there a way to only show the 3-4 most recent posts?  It's a lot to scroll through. @@Admin - TiggersAndTinks  156.0 #2552 5:08AM
I second this. The info is great to have, but it's too long.  - 1HitchhikingGhost  239.1 #1417 5:04PM

Going to be in the park Dec. 29-Jan. 2. We've always been during the Summer and Spring so this will be our very first time there during the Holiday Season. What is the weather there like during Winter, what should Hubby and I be packing and what should I be packing for my two boys ages 8 and 9? I know the park is usually packed during the Holidays (from what I have read), would we still be able to park hop (we bought 5 days park hoppers) if we get our hands stamped?

4. Try to find a "Made with Magic" wand or paintbrush which allow you to interact with select Disney experiences and merchandise.
