Today has been hard for me because my anxiety wants to act up. I know the lies the Beldamn wants to infect me with, and I know that my fight is ongoing. I can't let her win and I must remind myself that only I can help myself grow. Only you can help yourself blossom. … Continue reading Motivational Monday – Wherever life plants you, bloom with grace.
Good news from last week! Actually it's more of me feeling good and working out the small stuff, but good overall! Just to catch up on some things- I've been out of therapy since August and I want to go back. Now that I'm working (two jobs!) I hope to get back into in before … Continue reading Keeping up with my treatment: med refills, therapy and psychiatrist
The more that time goes on the more I understand that I’m ready for anything. I’m ready to defend, I’m ready to advocate, and I’m ready to teach others about the importance of mental health. And I was able to do that for the first time in public while fulfilling a phone upgrade. Now before … Continue reading The best self care day yet.
"We want to see us get out of this snail shell and scream at the top of our lungs "I FUCKING DID IT!"
So I just had my check in with Woebot (Woebot, the new mental health tool! <-- click here to read more on Woebot). And he gave me my weekly review and I'm shocked in all honesty. I typically don't think too much about the past and I definitely don't think about the week as a whole. … Continue reading Woebot part 2 – SMART goals and weekly mood tracker!
This is a hard subject to write about, because this is something I'm still learning to not only "take in" but learn from it. I won't ever be a mother personally. That doesn't mean I'm not caring or I don't value human life. I love children as much as I love adults and the elderly. … Continue reading After hours; don’t let loved ones influence your choices.
I just wanted to write how I can see how much I've grown over the last 3 months. Seeing myself conquer my thoughts yesterday before going to that interview really makes me proud. And I honestly just feel good about that. I could see myself just setting out of the shower, messaging Kim on how … Continue reading Listening to the easy things vs the hard.
Hey guys, thanks again for joining me! I wanted to quickly blurb about somethings, as I've slept ALL day and I'll be up for most, if not all night. I'm feeling great, and this is the second day I've felt good. And I really wanted to talk about this, since I normally post about my negative … Continue reading After hours series; open to those who need to chat.
Or if you're into coffee I have that. I don't have creamer though, but I have milk and sugar. I've been wanting to experiment more with tea though. I've never had a hot cup of tea with milk in it. It sounds really good! Although, I think that tastes well with certain tea. Must look … Continue reading Let’s chat over a cup of tea; I got the fuzzies.
I slept for 12 hours last night. Which is something to say considering I wasn't sleeping that long (or well) the previous days. I have a slight headache (probably left over from last nights headache) and I feel like.. I usually do. That feeling of unmotivated and hopelessness. Lost even! I feel so lost. You … Continue reading Mental illness feels like; take that step towards change.
