themightysite. A great reminder from @kshealthjourney to \"be kind to everyone, no mat

A great reminder from @kshealthjourney to "be kind to everyone, no matter what they look like" because not all illnesses or disabilities are visible. ••• @kshealthjourney says: "One of my favorite quotes is: 'be kind, for everyone you know is fighting a battle you know nothing about.' I have dealt with death stares, rude comments, been yelled at more than once and been treated like a piece of dirt because I don’t have the 'look' of someone who people think of as disabled. Well, look at the photo on the right. I look like a young, healthy and vibrant young woman. ••• People simply can’t comprehend what it is like to be chronically ill for most of your life. People can’t comprehend what it’s like to go grocery shopping and have to leave all the food in your car because you don’t have the energy left to bring it in and put it all away. People can’t comprehend what it’s like to be yelled at by totally random strangers because “you should be ashamed of yourself” for parking in an accessible spot. They look at me and their heads do not even consider that I could have had eight spine surgeries and that I live in a level 7-9 pain daily. ••• This is something that I have dealt with the entire time I’ve been chronically ill and it can be really demoralizing. I had someone make a comment to me for parking in an accessible spot three weeks after two major spine surgeries in 10 days. Since my spine surgeon didn’t want me wearing a back brace, I 'looked' okay to her apparently, so she felt emboldened to say something. I share this because I know that some people following me aren’t aware of this. Just remember: not all disabilities are visible. I genuinely hope this helps people to understand that even though someone looks a certain way, it doesn’t mean much of anything. Be kind to everyone, no matter what they look like." ••• #invisibleillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #chronicillnesswarrior #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthday #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #spoonie #spoonielife #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #fibromyalgia #fibro #lupus #PTSD #cancer #disability #eatingdisorder #recovery #ehlersdanlossyndrome #potssyndrome #endometriosis #endowarrior #depr

Just sit with me awhile. Sometimes it's what we need most. Words can be really overrated. Being there for someone and offering that time to show you care....goes Such a long way. I know many of us are far from those we love, and luckily there are many ways we can still do this virtually, but when you are geographically able to Physicaly make the effort to literally BE by someone’s side....please do. It’s a priceless gift that can have such a HUGE impact. ⚓️Leila⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #yoga www.facebook.com/rebelthrivers

That feeling when you want to do/be everything but your brain wants you to stay indoors where it's safe... . I don't hide my mental illness. It's there. It's obvious. I'm not ashamed. I wear it with pride - and sometimes annoyance haha. . It isn't exactly a fun thing to go through, it is hard. It's been a rough last few years of being beaten to my lowest point by my own brain, but I am determined to fight back. I am determined to be the loudest voice in my head. I will win. . I suffer from a variety of mental illnesses. It's like an entire group against me. Most days those voices are too loud and I am nothing but a whisper. I'm learning every day to get louder. I am learning to tell the other disorders that "hey, this is my brain. This is me. I reside here. I am in control." . This account, my blog, and my YouTube channel are all going to be based around my mental illness. How I cope while working, raising a family, going to school, and making time for myself and what I love. It's a lot of work, I am tired. But I will get there. I am building my dream life and nothing can stop me! 💪 . . Follow my journey of overcoming mental illness amd building my dream life from mental rock bottom. 😊 . . . . #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #mentallyill #mentaldisorders #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentallystrong #anxiety #depression #ocd #ptsd #bpd #ssd #blog #instablog #instablogger #journal #journey #dreamlife #igotthis #💪 #🧠

alashuahope. This is what mentally struggling looks like. I have had a rough couple

This is what mentally struggling looks like. I have had a rough couple of weeks mentally. I’ve been fighting back tears and feeling frustrated that I just cannot cry. I’ve had a few mental break downs. I’ve had a couple of panic attacks. I have been experiencing all of the highs and lows. I’ve been struggling to keep it together when all I want to do is let it out. So if I’ve been flaky, grumpy, rough around the edges or just a ball of mess it’s not you it’s me. Trying to remember that storms don’t last forever 💕 #bellletstalk #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #metoo #ptsd #bebrave #beyourself #itsokay

My inner children desire to return to the womb for true alchemy. Be bathed in the Aqua Light of the Divine Mother. 🦋 The outside may feel like such a struggle, that is your inner children calling you back inside. Return to the connection of innocence, purity and heart centered being. 🦋 I know for me, when I felt alone and abandoned, no matter how much I reached out to others, I still felt alone. Now I know this was because of my direct disconnection to Divine Mother and Divine Father. 🦋 As we recreate the bond between our own God Head Father and Sacred Holy Mother we can learn to mother and father our own inner children. Teach them that you have all the love for them. Teach them you will never leave them. 🦋 Once our inner children, who have been suffering due to unresolved trauma or disassociation, feel love they can flourish! 🦋 No more will your subconscious call forward more opportunity for suffering, abandonment, isolation. 🦋 Our chalice will always be full with love. 🦋 #wombalchemy #innerchildhealing #ascensionguide • • • • #healing #PTSD #NLP #healthyself #unresolvedemotions #spirituality #divinemasculine #divinefeminine #sacredhealing #holymother #godhead #goinside #harmony #innerstrength #indigochildren #transformation #insideout

Day 4 of my West Coast adventure and Mind Body guided me to a great studio in my old hometown of Stockton. Phenomenal Flow with Alyssa at Shine Yoga Studio was... PHENOMENAL. The studio has a weekly theme, and "Acceptance" hit me hard. Accepting who we are, where we are in our journey. Her sequence was lovely! And it was like she knew that I'd just gotten the chance to work Side Crow, because we came from low chair to side crow! I'm still not flying but I feel like I'm getting the muscle connection down! . We also came into Turtle! I posted a pool side picture of the variation from a 45 degree angle wide leg fold. It was so exciting to move into a shape that I hadn't explored in years. And to receive a chilly cloth with a peppermint scent was divine! Traveling yoga and the pleasure of being a student was a great gift of my vacation. Go outside of your comfort, explore! . . #kurmasana #turtlepose #travelingyogi #shineyoga #california #mindbody

More soup vicar?! Another batch of carrot and coriander soup in the soup maker. This little gadget has also been worth it's weight in gold and has paid for itself. With this soup maker I can whip up a soup in 21 minutes with little or no effort, and know I've had a least some of my "five fruit and veg" if not all, instead of surviving on toast. I'm not into cooking for myself, but know the importance of #selfcare and trying to be sensible through the difficult times of the old #blackdog. #whatyoudontsee #mentalhealth #ptsd #anxiety #depression #ocd #mopheads   #mrshinchmademedoit #hincharmy #mopitandtidyup #cleaning #cleaningtherapy #clean #lovetoclean #cleaningobsessed #ilovetoclean #cleanhome #cleanhouse #cleanstagram #housework #cleaningblogger #cleaningmotivation #cleaninghouse #cleaninginsta #cleanwithme #cleaninggoals

mdavidmo. \"We are only puppets, our strings are being pulled by unknown forces.\"

"We are only puppets, our strings are being pulled by unknown forces." -Dr. Georg Buchner. . Art collab @chloee.loung . Marijuana legalization officially began Canada-wide. Is there evidence for medical use? . . 1. Anxiety: Due to lack of high-quality studies to ascertain the effectiveness and safety of use, cannabinoids only mainly fall under 3rd line use for generalized anxiety, PTSD, Tourette’s, trichotillomania, and social anxiety (level 3 CANMAT guidelines). It is level 4 for OCD, bipolar and Major depressive disorder. Only therapies with level 1 or 2 should be used as first-line options. Emerging evidence shows anxiety can decrease in short term but paradoxically increase with long term cannabis use. . . 2. Mood disorders: General recommendations against use for those with bipolar or schizoaffective disorders due to worsening effects. However, consensus is unclear in regards to use for unipolar (depression). Spectrum of risk is lower on the unipolar side, and highest with schizoaffective. . . . . . For more good reads: I recommend looking up Dr. James MacKillop, director of the Centre for Medicinal Cannabis Research out of McMaster University. . . . 1. Turna J, Patterson B, Van Ameringen M.

mysteryoftheroseandthorn. woes of body dysmorphia/ hating ur smile / spending hours to whiten ur

woes of body dysmorphia/ hating ur smile / spending hours to whiten ur teeth/ trying to “fix”(my smile is the case, here).If only neurotypicals knew how hard it is for someone w/ body dysmorphia/low self esteem to present an image of themselves, EVEN TO THEMSELVES.. I wonder how people perceive themselves. Do ppl overanalys /criticise their own appearance as I do? Are they satisfied /content with their appearance/photos/reflection ? /content living in their skin even if they perceive flaws do they see them but accept them and feel ok doing so w/o obsessing over the flaw? I’m curious bc I struggle w body image. I never rememebr a time I felt pretty. Or comfortable with my physical self. Every yr at school photo time my mother affirmed I was the prettiest girl in my class when I spent HOURS justifying how I wasn’t. Other people cannot cure a flawed belief of am spent 70% my class time literally staring at my female peers idolising & awe of their many shades of diverse beauty and feeling disgusting &flawed. I was 7 when I noticed other girls, longing to look like them. 20 years later, I am still striving to feel okay in my skin. At times i cannot leave the house bc I believe my appearance “ugly”. Truth be told it’s NOT about what others think. It never has been. Not once. It’s all MY perception/belief of being “inadequate”I diverted this by being w other damaging behaviours to kill my low self worth for years. Recovering/managing #bpd. #bipolar #ednos #adhd leaves the libelyaftermath of #ptsd Body image is a daily nightmare. Even post recovery from 13 year #eatingdisorder. A body shape/size can be altered w ease. To reconcile my values of creating a “beautiful /aesthetically pleasant environment” when it is at odds w my perception of my facial features that I see every morning when I wake up is a first world bitch. I never hear others who can be crippled by a morning glimpse in the mirror. Obsession or depression if I stare too long. Forget doing makeup/skincare w a mirror. No ED= no longer skinny as a defence against my ugly/so why bother/inner work I do ruined by the mirror/ignore it today/this month and be distressed by lack of self care/neglect anyway. (Cont)
