  1. Welcome 🤗 to A 🐰 Shock’s 😲 post 📯 🙇 on Mental Health Day 2020 Introspection with me myself and I…

  2. Our mental health would be much better if you wasn’t lying about an in-isolated so called virus called CVD-19 that isn’t even deadly, if real!!!

  3. Pre-existing conditions are “meant” even post traumatic stress, which is very hard. But today, Instagram values monetary approaches mostly… children especially, but big pharma is still way scary! Advocating could be the best way to spread a positive message. Racial inequality makes things hard today, but that’s okay, my mom used to work for nasa. Rocket science is too difficult… focus on school helps a lot.
