A disgrace that one of Uganda's best couldn't get a spot in the hospital he's served for years. Do the rest of us stand a chance? We will never host Dr Charles Kiggundu, a champion for  #SRH, but we are fortunate to have interacted with him as journalists. What a loss!
Sleep well, doc.
We demand working health systems for all!

Each year, 16 million girls (15-19) give birth in developing regions ~ Plan International. We know even under 15s do as well.
Our 7th episode in season 2 tackles teenage pregnancy coupled with child marriage. We should all be unsettled.

Let’s not even call them teens, they’re children - Ann

Better to say girls lives interrupted as when you say teen, it seems far removed from the reality - JK

As we grow up as young girls we need to know that we have the power of saying no - demanding that we use conception barriers ~ Flory

In our UNICE Spotlight initiative, we found in Kitgum, about 1519 below 18 had gone to visit a health centre for antenatal care - not all cases are documented. The chances of girls returning to school are low ~ Cathy

Hi Digital Fam...you are missed. Now do catch up on our 6th episode from season 2 - especially if you've already spent your October earnings. PS: MOSTLY do listen to Halima but we also got some content on this topic.

Ann - I will keep living. This question is problematic because marriage is not an achievement!
JK - Why are we constantly bombarded with such silly questions?
Flory - Societal expectations  patriarchy, it's how the society was set up - so ingrained in our minds! This topic deserves all the anger we can give it.
Harriet - From the day a girl is born, she's looked at as a wife - it's the end goal and women aspire to it. Patriarchy has both genders captive by the way and it's sad when women are the drivers.

The impact of  #SelfJudgement

We worry about being judged as weak or unstable, so we learn to bury our struggles and not let on that anything is wrong. 
But as we fear judgements from others, we may also be judging ourselves, and if we don't accept our illness, this perpetuates our shame. 

When we resist what is, when we make who we are or what we feel wrong, we're adding another layer to our suffering. When we can find acceptance for our struggles, our relationship with illness begins to change. There's new found compassion for all our struggles and we find patience when we hit an emotional low.

As Nayyirah Waheed said,
"It is being honest about my pain, that makes me invincible."

So on  #WorldMentalHealthDay, as you contemplate your own life, 
💜 think about ways to please shine a little light on your struggles
💜be tender with yourself
💜challenge your self judgements and,
💜find acceptance for the entirely of who  you are. ~  #DailyCalm
