Sunset on Mt. Hood. Mount Hood, called Wy'east by the Multnomah tribe, is a potentially active stratovolcano in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of northern Oregon. It was formed by a subduction zone on the Pacific coast & rests in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States. In addition to being Oregon's highest mountain, it is one of the loftiest mountains in the nation based on its prominence. #majestic_view #timberlinelodge #landscapephotography #photography #mthood #mthoodmagic #volcano #pnw #pdxphotographer #wilderness #oregonstate #cascades #explore #adventure #photography #viewpoint #naturephotography #therapeutic #journey #100daysofhiking /exploration #nature #lovethelifeyoulive #hiking #asthmatichiker #epilepsyawareness #livethelifeyoulove #epilepsy #natureismytherapy #ptsdawareness #ptsd

#cbdforanxiety Most people don’t understand the complexities of having an anxiety disorder and the effect it can have on your body, mind and spirit. No one chooses to feel the ways they do, but the accumulating dread someone feels in the back of their head can stop them from fully enjoying life. Life can be hard on someone living with perpetual stress or an anxiety disorder, and when it comes to doing small tasks — especially if it has to do with going out in public or determining your future — that small thing can seem really big. #cbdoil #anxiety #happy #socialanxiety #ptsd #ptsdawareness #karma #love #anxietysucks #insomnia #stressed #stress #selfhate #depressing #depression #loveme #recover #getbetter #healthy #badmood #anorexianervosa #recovering #bpd #instasad #upset #cheermeup #mentalhealthrecovery #realrecovery #invisibleillness

The way in which CBD oil helps individuals with PTSD, is in a unique manner. The oil directly targets stress, anxiety, depression and many of the other mental symptoms attached with PTSD, and by lessening them, the physical symptoms also subside, since the two are deeply interconnected. Although triggers will still exist in everyday life, the cannabinoids found in CBD help to block the mood receptors that are triggered, promote sleep hormones, regulate stress hormones, block reconsolidation memory (flashbacks, etc.), and improve extinction learning (the reprogramming of the brain’s response in certain circumstances). All of what CBD does can be directly related to what is necessary for individuals with PTSD to experience some relief and lessening of symptoms. #cbd #cbdoil #cbdlife #cbdheals #cbdforthepeople #cbdproducts #cbdptsd #ptsd #ptsdawareness #hemp #timeless #timelesscbd #ct #ctcompany

Sometimes people don’t need the promises of the scriptures or the laws or to be rebuked or reminded of our responsibilities as Christians. Sometimes, in the hard moments, they just need you to walk beside them and be Christ’s love. Not every struggle, not every misstep, not every heartache is the time to push the Bible. Sometimes it’s just the time to be like Jesus.👍🏼 God is a big boy. He can handle the questions, the doubt, the fears and inadequacies of His followers. He knows the pain in their hearts better than you ever could. He doesn’t need you to defend them or teach them or play the Holy Spirit. They don’t need that. But they do need His love. His grace. His mercy. And Jesus’ willingness to step into the hard places🙌🏼. Be willing to step into the hard places. To sit with the doubt, heartache, pain, and questions. To be there when someone cries “I don’t know I can believe God is good” as they face the evil of man. Don’t go into it to teach or reprimand or educate. Enter their hard places to love them. Simply love. Love upon love upon love. 💙

Today is day 672 of the 22 push-up challenge that Frank Tincher challenged me too. You do 22 push ups a day to raise awareness for the combat veterans. There are 22 vets on average each day that take their lives due to their PTSD. So if you know a vet or encounter a vet that needs help can you please get them the help they need. #22kill #22pushupchallenge #ptsdawareness #letscheckonafriend #mission22

Yes yes he is. I've been called a Warrior once again. Starting to really love that word. So I talked with my new roommates today about my disorder. I explained what it was and symptoms I may show. What helps what does not. Since I'm off my meds, I'm a little worried about going mania or manic. I didn't want to scare them but I needed to make sure they knew. #bipolar #bipolardisorder #angrybipolar   #adhd #squirrel #alwayskeepmoving #mybipolarlife #anxietydisorder #ptsd #ptsdawareness #depression #iamenough

Too much chaos today. We have a new tradition in which we have a candlelight dinner with zero electronics. My husband has no problem unplugging from electronics. I actually struggle with this because to me it means I should be sleeping. 😂 I learned it was so nice to focus on the company and the food instead of the outside world. Starting new traditions is a great way to heal from anything. You don’t have to break the bank. In fact, by keeping it simple it teaches the brain it’s time to rest. So underrated and needed for everyone. #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #goodnightpost

Strength & Courage - don’t grow on trees you know! • Harness them & reserve them for the right time ... giving it away without considering, that you may need it for yourself either right now or along your journey! • Keep building your supply and storing it away, within your core, within your soul, heart & mind! • Draw upon it and allow it to provide for you the sustainability it offers! It’s there, really it is ... it may disguise itself in so many ways ... learn to connect with it ... small steps ... get to know it ... it’s an innate force ... it got you here! • Yes, even if it was rough and tumble ... yes, even if it had you experience what you did .... it got you through ... and it allowed for those people, who were there for you, to connect with you and your inner strength & courage drew upon theirs ... those that willingly & with permission gave of themselves to you! • In my experience there have only been a select few, who stepped forward to embrace my journey ... to respect it and acknowledge it! • And it is those, who I will welcome to celebrate with me once I return to immerse myself and dancing in the light, that is the wonderment of my life! • ILARIO 🕺🏻VITALIS • on #youtube #subscribe #constructingilario • • #cptsd #cptsdrecovery #cptsdsurvivor #complexptsd #cptsdawareness #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #ptsdawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxiety #health #childabusesurvivor #childabuse #highlysensitiveperson #lgbt #🏳️‍🌈 #happylife #ilariovitalis

Shifting disabling words/language to more enabling ones allows an opportunity to empower oneself.. a little.. or a lot.. or not at all consciously, however it does make a big difference in a subconscious level! • Self-talk and the words we use may cause either a much healthier mindset • Awareness of the way we speak with ourselves and with others is another tool that we can adopt and adapt to our everyday life! • i’ve learnt after many challenges in my life (and of course in 51 yrs there would have to be lol) ....I became aware, that when I’m conscious of my self-talk or the language I’m using with others, this allows me to have an insight into what’s really going on within! It provides me with a glimpse into what I need to shift in myself and or around me in order to create a more balance inner environment! • Suffered Suffer Suffering, I don’t for a minute suggest, that what we endure upon our journey of recovery isn’t significant, however (I feel) if I was to continue to build my path with disabling language how would I ensure that the road / path a walk upon is going to support me unconditionally?!? • To thrive I choose not compromise the possibility with using language like, “Illness, I have a mental illness and it’s terminal.....” This is what Ive been hearing about the social media platforms .... and it concerns me, that thousands of our community are gravitating to these platforms! • I believe, that “The power is in the choice” and if people, who are vulnerable and align with these particular mind sets, then so be it .. however it may inevitably not contribute towards breakthroughs! • We have all endured trauma & we are all here to come together in order to ensure we continue to provide ourselves with something g more than we have had in our past ... because we are worthy! • I guess, sometimes it come down to what we feel we are worthy of ... sometimes that comes with maturity (regardless of age) sometimes it comes down to simply being true to oneself! • Nobody’s story is anymore tragic or toxic than any other’s! I for one will choose not to immerse myself in other’s disabling choices, their words or language or otherwise ... because I am worthy of more!

Literally nothing like a night walk on the beach to destress 😍😍 my anxiety and depression have hit hard today, to be completely honest. Between my mother telling me I’m fat and ugly because of my stretch marks, nightmares and all the PTSD flashbacks/terrors/paranoia/horrid nightmares, etc. I feel like I can’t go on. Life feels too much. Taking a step back is so helpful though (that is, until you feel unsafe again). This PTSD stuff makes me want to die more and more. Hoping and praying for a peaceful night since today was not the best day. How are y’all relaxing tonight? 🖤 #eatingdisorderrecovering #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexiarecovery #osfesrecovery #morethanmybody #morethanmydisorder #ptsdrecovering #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #ptsdhelp #warrior #exhausted #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideawareness #suicideprevention #sendhelp #literally #beachwalks #goodnight #couragemylove

“Exile makes sense when you realize you were never really home in the first place” -Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice Playing through #hellbladesenuassacrifice and this line really hit me...mental health issues can be incredibly divisive to families....now more than ever I feel like I never really was at home in your house anyway, I don’t need to seek your validation anymore. Strength can be found from walking away from that which harms you, even when it’s family. #mentalhealth #ptsd #recovery #injuryreduction #mentalhealthawareness #majordepressivedisorder #selfinjuryawareness #injuryrecovery #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #anxiety #anxietyrelief #solidarity #videogames #gametherapy #hellbladesenuassacrifice #ninjatheory #unrealengine4

Today, in partnership with Black Dog Institute, Everymind, headspace, Lifeline, ReachOut and R U OK? , beyondblue launched a national suicide prevention campaign - #YouCanTalk. #YouCanTalk is aimed at giving the public the confidence and tools to ask direct questions and talk safely about suicide if they observe signs family or friends have not been themselves. The campaign is the first collaboration of its kind. It’s an understatement to say that I’m exceptionally proud to work at beyondblue and be part of an organisation that supports all Australians to achieve their best possible mental health, whatever their age and wherever they live. It also a great privilege and an exceptional honour to work in the beyondblue Police and Emergency Service Program and to assist in providing much needed mental health literacy, stigma reduction and well-informed policy change to 400,000 emergency service employees and volunteers, who provide valuable assistance to the community. This program is informed by the research conducted from 2014 through to 2018 by beyondblue and a number of research bodies including The University of Western Australia, in consultation with PES Agencies, into the mental health of emergency service workers.This research will be publicly launched in late 2018 and will make a meaningful and dramatic difference to those who protect and serve us and aims to bolster their ability to survive and thrive whilst performing this essential work. Exciting times ahead for the Police and Emergency Services Sector, especially for those who may be reading this from the QPS and other agencies. For further information on suicide prevention and how to have a conversation with someone you’re worried about, head on over to https://www.beyondblue.org.au/the-facts/suicide-prevention/worried-about-suicide/having-a-conversation-with-someone-you're-worried-about or check out the #YouCanTalk campaign here https://www.lifeinmindaustralia.com.au/youcantalk #YouCanTalk #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #ptsd #ptsdawareness #suicideprevention #suicideawareness #endthestigma #conversation #support

FlashBack: Before hitting the gym this is Was I was doing a couple times a week. Riding my ATV. I battled my mental health by riding the trails and getting muddy. It was a great way to decompress and clear my head. I got so much joy out of riding and getting dirty in the Texas mud. But unfortunately my atv broke down and I didn’t have the money to fix it. So I had to turn to something else to get my mind right. So fitness was the solution. And it has served me well on all fronts. Find what works for you and roll with it! I share what works for me in hopes that I will have the same effect on you all. What works for you?! ***Don’t care for the lack of beard though. 😬 #ptsdrecovery #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdsurvivor #adapt #adaptandovercome #survive #adjust #80sbabygwotmademe #grunt #gruntlife #11bravo #atv #atvriding #atvlife #mud #mudding #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #pushforward #yougotthis #chrisreid11b #texasveterans

Cities don’t break your heart, people do. Then why do we associate pain with the place, rather than putting it squarely where it belongs, on the shoulders of the abuser(s)?

There’s something I’ve been keeping to myself for a while now, but it’s time to raise some awareness on the subject that affects many of our Emergency Services. I was diagnosed with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) in Nov 2015, due to my work as a Paramedic. I have seen a lot of things that I can never unsee, things that will haunt me for years to come.. It still makes no sense to me that I dedicated myself to a career to help people, and yet here I am now needing the help. This has been a long journey in recovery and I’m working hard every day with the support of my family and friends. If you’re struggling, don’t push your feelings aside. Don’t wait as long as I did to seek help. I was embarrassed, full of shame, and thought if I just kept going I would be ok. Push it under the rug and move forward. Cover it with alcohol or busyness. But that just doesn’t work, your mind needs you to stop, dig up all of the hard, raw, painful stuff and work on it, so you can move forward. One day at a time. #ptsd #awareness #truth #paramedic #posttraumaticstressdisorder #recovery #ptsdawareness #treatment #support #family #friends #strong #trauma #traumaticevents #ambulance #help #thistooshallpass

I have struggled my whole life with re-living the worst parts through my mind both in day and night. But today, I realized how those worse parts made me stronger and tougher. It also made me realize that those nightmares along with the people behind them can’t hurt me anymore.
