Self-Care Sunday

Last week I was hit with some news that took an overwhelming toll on me. I’m still dealing with it this week unfortunately but that’s ok. Soon I hope it resolved itself. But this post isn’t about the news! It’s about this past Sunday and how I took hours of my free time to just … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday

Mental illness feels like; random panic attacks. 

If you asked me about four years ago, why I would suddenly burst into tears or why I was tearing up, or WHY I was acting so “needy”. I honestly wouldn’t have been able to answer you. I would just say “I’m tired” or “I don’t feel good”. Emotions are just a hair ball, ya … Continue reading Mental illness feels like; random panic attacks. 

Limbo isn’t a vacation spot. 

Right now, I feel like am back in limbo. Where I don’t know how I’m feeling or what I should be doing. Like before, how I would write about me having a to-do list but never did them?? Or how I would fight with myself over what thing I should do to start my day. … Continue reading Limbo isn’t a vacation spot. 

#MotivationalMonday, The Bigger Picture. 

I don’t know how to explain how I feel right now. It’s not bad, that I can say for sure. I think it’s content? At ease. Relearning emotions has been a challenge for me. What I use to feel when I was significantly (emotionally) sensitive I was in constant flight mode. I was always in … Continue reading #MotivationalMonday, The Bigger Picture. 

The best self care day yet. 

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. 

Mental illness feels like: racing thoughts.  

For the last week I've been coming home from work and just having this constant throbbing of thoughts.  I'm proud to say I finally have the tools to somewhat silence then. However, they are still an aching annoyance.  For example- yesterday. It was my day off, I had planned to do some light cleaning around … Continue reading Mental illness feels like: racing thoughts.  

Woebot, the new mental health tool!

I was browsing twitter (great habit huh) the other day and I stumbled upon this post about a bot, that is designed to help you through some rough times. The creators are very strict about the fact that Woebot is not a therapist, and is not a substitute for your mental health care. I was … Continue reading Woebot, the new mental health tool!

Listening to the easy things vs the hard.

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.

After hours; job interview and no coffee!

I haven't touched on the topic much about how caffeine affects me while on this medication, and I'm sad to say that I miss coffee!! I get the jitters and I'm super hyper now when I consume coffee. When before I was just another walking zombie with an IV bag attached to me full of … Continue reading After hours; job interview and no coffee!
