Good morning everyone! ☀️ Thoughts on ✨INFLAMMATION & ADRENAL FATIGUE ✨ (Photo is re-posted from @drericberg -we’re not at all affiliated) I thought this was such a powerful statement, because when you think about how much stress and anxiety we often deal with, (although being happy people) it makes sense that we would often be hormonally depleted. This is especially true for people who have suffered #trauma or have #ptsd . Certain hormones produced by your adrenal glands, particularly cortisol, regulate your immune system and If cortisol goes too low or too high, this can lead to regular chronic inflammation, autoimmune diseases or even allergies! What can you do? Increasing your levels of vitamin C and vitamin B5 through your diet or supplements may help ease symptoms of adrenal fatigue. Backing off on the coffee may significantly help as well, die to the fact it’s a stimulant (please don’t hate me! I ❤️ my coffee too lol) . . . . . #antiinflammatory #antiinflammatorydiet #antiinflammatoryfood #healthyliving #cortisolcontrol #healthylivingtips #greenliving #bekks_essentials #organicskincare #turmeric #pain #painmanagement #sugarfreediet

Can I just kill myself already? Every time I wake up, everyone else in the world is doing something to their life while I'm doing nothing and everyone bullies me or wanting to kill me just because I'm not happy all the time. I feel like having a meltdown because it seems as though people only care about a Nickelodeon show and that they could care less on how I feel as an actual person. I really feel like cutting myself again. I AM NOT FINE. But, everyone forces me to be that way and feel like having a huge meltdown at this point. #deongarth #gayguys #instagay #feminine #autism #adhd #introvertproblems #ptsd #suicidal #badthoughts #depression #awareness #worthless #lonely #NOBODY #ugly #stupid #lifeistough #selfharm #selfhate

According to research, 75% of people subjected to exorcisms are women- a large majority of whom are victims of sexual abuse or rape. This raises much needed questions about how many of these women deemed to be demon possessed are in fact, suffering from mental illness as a result of the assault. And what does it do psychologically to someone who has been raped or sexually abused when you make them feel that they are possessed by evil after an experience in which they were the victim? The documentary Demonized: Investigating Real Life Exorcisms and Mental Illness by Super Snitch examines this, as well as famous cases of exorcisms and the science behind mental illness.

De sábado! Primeiro preciso dizer que saí horrível na foto porque estava com a boca cheia de churrasco e tentando disfarçar 😂. Depois preciso dizer que conhecer esse casal especial foi uma das melhores coisas que me aconteceram nesse ano e que eu acho que o Jean é o meu gêmeo perdido porque encontrei alguém que fala tanta merda quanto eu. E preciso esclarecer que eu não moro no Pontões da Barra, mas estou tanto lá por causa deles que parece que eu sou sócia do condomínio. Por último preciso dizer que a Carol parece uma princesa de conto de fadas de tão linda e cheia de luz e que às vezes eu me pergunto como é que o Jean conseguiu casar com ela... Rsrsrsrsrs... É muito carinho por esse casal!!! ❤ * * * From saturday! First I have to say that I was horrible in the picture because my mouth was full of barbecue and i was trying to disguise it. Then I have to say that meeting this special couple was one of the best things that happened to me this year and that I think Jean is my lost twin because I met someone who talks as much shit as I do. And I need to clarify that I do not live in the Pontões da Barra, but I am so much there because of them that it seems that I am a member of the condominium. Finally I must say that Carol looks like a fairy-tale princess so beautiful and full of light and that sometimes I wonder how Jean managed to marry her ... Rsrsrsrsrs ... It is very love for this couple !!! #bipolar #bypolarix #bipolardisorder #ptsd #adhd #mania #depression #anxiety #psychosis #psychiatry #mentalillness #dailybattle #nevergiveup #brokenbrain #anxietyattack #sabado #saturday #blessed #barbecue #pontoesdabarra #recreio #riodejaneiro #carolsbirthday #friends #hubby

This exhibition - Art in the Aftermath - has just finished, but it’s still worth a mention! Huge admiration for @styleforsoldiers and all the artists whose work was shown at @lagalleriapallmall. All artists are veterans with brain injuries and/ or PTSD who have found new life through art. Their work is stunning and truly thought-provoking. Special praise to Stewart Hill for his portraits (I’m also coaching his solo performance work), @karltearney for his stirring poetry (lovely meeting you!) and @martinwadeartist whose geometrical works blew my mind. #ptsd #artintheaftermath #stewarthill #artexhibition #arttherapy #rehabilitation #portraitpainting #portrait #selfportrait

This month depression has really taken its toll on me. It tries to claw its way out of your body leaving you broken and feeling torn apart by something you can’t even see. It makes you manic, it makes you believe things that aren’t true, it makes you feel negative raw emotion that can’t be fixed on the spot. It burrows it’s way into your mind, and into the core of your body. Gripping you so tightly from the inside that you can’t escape. Depression is pain. But... Depression is also strength. You learn to fall down seven times, stand up eight. Your fight is not over. You are a warrior and you didn’t even know it. You are Xena. And you can do this. 🖤✨🥊⚔️ #depression #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recovery #ptsd #anxiety #struggling #positive #sad #trying #healing #xena #xenawarriorprincess #xenaandgabrielle #staystrong #fight #love 💗🧡

Confession: I cut my own bangs 🙈 Confession: I have felt emotionally out of control lately Confession: I had a mental breakdown on Halloween Confession: I had a mental health assesment done this morning Confession: I have a new diagnosis, that both terrifies me and completely makes sense. It puts all of my puzzle pieces for the last 20 years, together. To those of you reading this who have contemplated seeking help: do it. To those of you reading this who want to find answers to their mental health questions: do it. To those of you reading this who feel they need to switch counselors, medications, or treatment plans: do it. To those of you reading this who are afraid to hear the diagnosis, go on medications, and take the next steps: do it. Everything I have been told in the past as far as my diagnosis, treatment plans, coping mechanisms has all been wrong. No wonder it never felt like it helped! Here's to moving forward, seeking the help I need, and making positive changes to (fingers crossed 🤞) alleviate the problematic symptoms that have been intensifying recently. #mentalillness #mentalhealth #beaconhealth #livingwithmentalillness #livingwithPTSD #PTSD #takethenextstep #mentalhealthblogging #endthestigma #seekhelp

You’re heart hurts because you gave them a piece you can’t get back... Whether it’s an ended friendship, a break up or a death, it is a loss; it is grief. You gave a piece of yourself to that relationship. You gave your love and loyalty. You gave your heart and soul. When it ends, even if it was toxic, it hurts. That pain is real and it cuts deeply. Even though you can’t get that piece of you back, time will ease that pain. There is no limit on that time, it is all personal. Take your time to work through it and heal. #bipolar #mania #hypomania #depression #mixedepisode #rapidcycling #ocd #panic #ptsd #insomnia #infj #empath #agoraphobia #selfharm #suicide #adhd #darkness #survivor #healing #chronicpain #invisibleillness #therapy #selfcareisntselfish #endthestigma #mentalhealth #projectsemicolon #itsokaytonotbeokay #monstersinmyhealth #silentscreams

We can often look for comfort and happiness is external things, such as work, food, shopping, exercise, alcohol, pills, drama, religion etc. It takes a lot of work to dig deep enough to find your happiness without all these things as fillers for the void.

“Individuals with chronic illness and their caregivers experience higher rates of depression and anxiety, yet it’s something that we don’t talk openly about. It is 100% okay to not be okay all the time, and admitting that has made me feel more okay than I have in a very long time.” . . . 🌹On the blog today, I’m talking about an experience I had during this most recent hospital stay that made me finally admit that I needed help.

To whom it may concern ♡ As thanksgiving comes around the corner, there are concerns that are arising in my mind. This will be my first thanksgiving in recovery, and I am honestly terrified. But there are things I need everyone to know. I am still at the beginning stages of recovery. I will struggle. Every bite is still a struggle. I still struggle not to purge whatever I eat. But I am fighting. I have gained weight. There will be pictures posted, and I would appreciate people being understanding and nonjudgmental of my weight gain. Thanksgiving is a huge fear for most people with an eating disorder, so if someone you know is struggling, be compassionate, loving, and understanding of what they are going through. Tips: - Don’t judge their portion sizes. They are eating what they can manage. Whether you think it’s too much, or too little. - Dessert may not happen for them. Don’t pressure them. It’s scary, especially after a big meal. - Keep table talk light and cheery. No heavy topics such as politics, weight, therapy, etc. - Let them know you are there for them. Any amount of support is so appreciated. Finally, these tips aren’t just for thanksgiving. Love those with an eating disorder every day. Don’t judge us, as we are struggling more than you can imagine.

Pursuing your dream, especially in freelance work, doesn't mean you have to give up affordable or quality health insurance! Repost from @thecaitlinflynn : " #45 slashed advertising for #Obamacare sign-ups by 90%, so let’s help each other out by spreading the word. I did this fun photo shoot with @waplanfinder at my apartment (which doubles as my workspace) and shared how the ACA has changed my life for the better. . In 2015, all I wanted was to move across the country to Seattle and try my hand at freelance writing. But I’d spent my entire adult life believing that, because I have serious chronic illnesses, I would always need a corporate job purely for the insurance. . The plan I got through @waplanfinder has been just as good as the insurance I had during my corporate days. Furthermore, the freelance lifestyle has been beneficial to both my mental and physical health. . . Over the past three years, I’ve accomplished more than I ever thought possible when I first began this journey in 2015. I’ve written articles I’m so proud of, traveled the world, interviewed amazing women from Jane Goodall to Chelsea Handler, and met so many wonderful, interesting, and creative people who inspire me every day. It’s opened doors for me that brought me on a path I never expected: Public speaker and advocate for sexual violence awareness. Words can’t express how empowering this has been. But if I hadn’t had access to the ACA, I never would have had any of these opportunities. . Open enrollment ends on December 15. If you have any questions, feel free to DM me (or, of course, call the awesome folks at @waplanfinder or your state’s exchange).

In “The Origin of Species,” Darwin explained his Facial Feedback Response Theory. It states that the act of smiling itself actually makes us feel better, rather than smiling being merely a result of feeling good. When you smile, even a forced smile, the muscles of your face trigger the release of endorphins and can help lower your heart rate. These good feelings can even extend to others. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to research, as a way of understanding the perspective and feelings of another person, we simulate others’ facial expressions to create emotional responses in ourselves. So when another person replicates your smile – consciously or unconsciously – they enhance their own feeling of happiness or contentment. A simple smile can go a long way! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Photo: @interagindo_rj ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #autismawareness #autismspeaks #autismlove #autismtherapy #autismsupport #autismparents #autismacceptance #autismlife #ilovesomeonewithautism #autismmom #autismdad #autismfamily #listeningtherapy #musictherapy #adhd #sensoryprocessingdisorder #sensoryplay #learningdisabilities #specialneeds #developmentaldisabilities #specialneedskids #specialneedsparents #specialneedsmom #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #occupationaltherapy #speechies #slpeeps #integratedlistening #integratedlisteningsystems

There are days when I feel like crying, even do. I have feelings and I talk about them and I sometimes feel weak. I wouldn’t say I’m an alpha male, nor a lad. But I am still a man. There is a false illusion of what being a man entails, when I was younger I sometimes found it hard to open up about my feelings and my mental health because I thought I’d be seen as weak or people might think I’m weird, other men wouldn’t befriend me. hat’s why it’s so difficult to open up about certain feelings when you’re a man, because centuries for being a man has meant being a ‘leader’ being ‘strong’ and ‘taking on everything the world throws at you without showing weakness’. Will I be fired if I open up about my struggles? Will people leave me if I talk about the thoughts inside my head? Am I alone? the reaction I imagined was quite different to the one I experienced. It’s strong to talk! 💪🏼💛 Happy #InternationalMansDay

IVIG day went off without a hitch. And aside from being cold and a lot of aches and pains, I'm doing really good. I went in at 8am in the morning and was out of there by around 12pm. Let me tell you, the nurses of Medical Day Care are wonderful people. They see me every week for the zofran infusions, but that only takes 1/2 hour and I'm done. But today they were very imformative and helpful like getting a blanket from the warmer for me. I go back in again tomorrow when I'll get the IVIG infusion and my regular weekly zofran infusion so I dont have to go back again on Wednesday! I also have a doc appt on Wednesday. I'm hoping ill feel better by then. Glad the first IVIG went off without a hitch. I was so nervous I was going to have an allergic reaction. That was worst case scenario. Lol. Now I'm home, relaxing in my chair, with the iv still in my hand so I don't have to get poked again tomorrow.

Head's not playing ball today 🙄 I've been sat staring at the ceiling wondering what point there is when I've made such little progress in five years. Still can't go outside, still lonely, still numb, still want to rip my face off. Bleurghhhhhhhhhh 😣 So I'm taking inspiration from my coffee mug - make today awesome. Maybe "awesome" is a little far, but I can either let myself feel this way, or do something about it. So later tonight, I'm going to get a bin bag & sort through the two boxes I've been putting off unpacking for the last month. It's all photos, cards, things from the past that probably will trigger the hell outta me. Anything that I don't want to keep? Straight into the 🗑️🗑️ I can't change the way I think, or what I'm feeling. But I can do something, no matter how small, that might be helpful for my recovery 💙 . . . . . #recovery #positivethinking #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #therapy #anxiety #socialanxiety #positivity #realrecovery #coffee #endthestigma #movingon #ptsd #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #maketodaycount #mentalillness #cbt #cognitivebehavioraltherapy #selflove

A few days ago I felt the need to talk about emotional abuse...during my lunch breaks I reflect on common “issues” we don’t or the society does not like to talk about. Yesterday, I saw both @justineskye @jadapinkettsmith mom’s Interviews on the topic and I’d like to use these as a friendly reminder. Love yourself enough to know when to get some help. It happened to #JustinSkye and Jada’s mom so you’re not alone. Huge applaud to both women for bringing this to light. It’s NOT easy sharing such with the public. Again #Repost from last Monday: If you’re wondering whether it’s happening to you, here are some of the signs: •yelling •name-calling •spewing insults or otherwise ridiculing you •attempting to make you question your own sanity •invading your privacy •punishing you for not going along with what they want •trying to control your life or making you feel guilty for having one (you can’t go back to college, you can’t work, you can’t leave home, you’re a bad husband/father/mother/wife why would you wanna go out without me) •isolating you from family and friends Remember, this can happen to both men or women. Love does not hurt, if it does it’s time to re-evaluate! Happy Monday. #DrSim #EmotionalAbuse #Abuse #Depression #PTSD #Anxiety #DomesticAbuse #NYCPsych #NormalizeMentalHealth #NJPsych

♡ "In yoga you focus your attention on your breathing and on your sensations moment to moment. You begin to notice the connection between your emotions and your body - perhaps how anxiety about doing a pose actually throws you off balance. You begin to experiment with changing the way you feel. Will taking a deep breath relieve that tension in your shoulder? Will focusing on your exhalation produce a sense of calm?" - Bessel Van Der Kolk, MD @thebodykeepsthescore #thebodykeepsthescore #book #yogaheals #yogaforeveryone #ptsd #traumasensitiveyoga #liveyourpassion #breathe #inhaleloveexhalelove #youcandoit #dontgiveup #jesusfirstyogasecond #yogafaith #alwaysastudent #learningeveryday #change #christianyogaassociation #bethehelper #ryt200 #yogaismychurch #mindbody #mindfulness #prayer #worship #meditation #yogalove #yogaforlife #youcanyogawithme

Listen up Dating someone with mental illness isn't cute.It isn't endearing.My depression doesn't look like listening to your heartbeat before I fall asleep.My anxiety doesn't look like holding your hand.My obsessive-compulsive disorder doesn't look like writing your name a million times across notebooks.My post-traumatic stress disorder doesn't look like screaming your name. My mental illness looks like asking you if you love me fifteen times a day and not believing a single one of those times not because "I'm just looking for attention" but because I really, sincerely can not believe you.My mental illness looks like bringing up an argument from weeks ago because I can't get over it, because I still lie awake letting it eat me alive.My mental illness looks like not showering for three days, my hair matted to my face, not responding to your messages because I do'nt know what to say;there's no excuse for all this pain. My mental illness doesn't look like me, because dating someone with a mental illness isn't just dating one person.It's dating a perdon and their mental illness too. You know, mental illness changes people.Sometimes it turns them into peopke they don't know. They say and do things they can't explain.If your'e ignorant you can ignore their apologies.Brush them off.Say there's no way depression can make someone completely and utterly lash out, but 1.Yes, it can. 2. Mental illness isn't just depression and anxiety. It's Borderline Personality Disorder.Bipolar Disorder. Schizophrenia.Anorexia. Bulimia Nervosa. It's things you can't pinpoint, things you don't know about.It affects everyonedifferently and it's real.And we didn't choose this. We could never ever choose this, even if we wanted to, and we never, ever want to. And it might look like looking for atrention to you.It might look like not trying hard enough.But it's real to me , when I'm smearing my own blood on my skin.When I'm making impulsive decisions.When I'm ruining every relationship I've ever been in.And it hurts when I hear I'm not doing well enough for your comfort, when Im going to therapist appointments and changing medication every month.
