  • A friend of mine posted this picture earlier today.

It got me thinking, I’m not the type of person who puts all my feelings over Facebook all the time. I know some people do and I don’t have a problem with that as it helps them. 
I suffer with mental ill health and like a lot of people people with mental ill health, I spend a lot of time fronting it. It’s important to me to fit in, to seem normal, to do the things normal people do. 
I have have been honing and mastering my front on as a defence mechanism over many years. It’s the thing that sometimes keep me from falling apart. I rarely show emotion unless I’m behind closed doors or around people I trust. 
I have honed that front because there is still a lot of stigma around mental ill health. A negative stereotype of people with a mental ill health. These stereotypes come to define the person, mark them out as different and prevent them being seen as an individual. People with mental ill health get Socail stigma and are often avoided by family and friends, work colleagues. 
The level of knowledge among the public regarding mental health problems is poor and negative beliefs and attitudes are widespread. Both are key elements of stigma.

Yes I struggle with mental ill health and I’m publicly saying something, if it wasn’t for the people who have supported me and been there me to cry,shout talk to I would be in a much darker place.

So if anyone needs to talk I’m a message away. Don’t suffer in silence.

  • No make up, No freshly done hair, just honesty about life. Years of untreated OSA and my new treatment not yet going well is torture.
It causes me ....
anxiety, depression, headaches, insomnia,sleep deprivation, restless leg syndrome, confusion and forgetfulness, and also palpitations.
I really am safe I promise and not at risk, but want to speak out about mental pain people can be in whilst living life as best they can.

Today my head is a shitstorm and wonder how I can find 'more' of myself to push through.

  • Als 12 jarig meisje kreeg ik er voor het eerst mee te maken. 'Geef maar toe, je vroeg er zelf om' of 'Stel je niet zo aan, er zijn wel ergere dingen!' kreeg ik vaak te horen. In mijn leven ben ik meerdere keren misbruikt, verwaarloosd & gepest geweest en de reacties die ik soms kreeg, brachten heel veel schade aan. 
Zoveel schade, dat ik zelfs na jaren die zinnetjes nog steeds in mijn hoofd hoor. En geloof mij, dat doet vreselijk veel pijn.
-
'Wat vervelend voor je, laten we het daar volgende week over hebben. Ik ga nu naar huis'.
-
'Je hebt maar 1 keer nee gezegd? Dan kan iemand toch niet weten dat je het niet wilt?'
-
'Dit roep je gewoon omdat je boos bent.'
-
'Zulke dingen mag je niet verzinnen & al helemaal niet zeggen.'
-
' Dan had je je maar anders moeten kleden, je hebt het zelf uitgelokt.'
-
Ik ben hier om je juist het tegenovergestelde te vertellen. Het is namelijk WEL erg als iemand over jou grens gaat. Als dat nou gaat om iets kleins of om iets groters. 
Het gaat om jou gevoel. Je stelt je niet aan. Je bent niet zwak. Het valt niet mee. Je hebt er niet om gevraagd. Je hoeft je niet te schamen.
-
Deel het alsjeblieft. Praat er over. Elke ongewenste aanraking is er al één te veel. En misschien nog wel het allerbelangrijkste ; wat je ook hebt meegemaakt, ik geloof je! 🦋

  • This is weeks and weeks and weeks of comics, gone unread. My depression  kept me from wanting to even acknowledge the growing stack, but my love for them kept me buying them. My anxiety made me feel bad about not reading them, and so I felt worse when I didn't. But I just couldn't do it. Hobbies have been HARD. 
Today is the first day I WANT to read them, sort them, bag them. 
This is huge, and I'm over the moon about it. 🥰

  • Depression is not joke. And people who has this don’t need judgment. They need understanding, love  and acceptance.
_
Lately was a rocky road in my life. I’ve been silently battling— both from my dression and anxiety. Things were not really good. I’ve been hurt again and again by the same thing from the same person. And it was doing no good to my mental health. I developed too many fears which I am not sure of. I was always disturb. I can’t even focus. 
_
To those who are figthing, I wanna let you know that you are doing a good job. Hold on a little more. We got this.

  • Jausti liūdesį karts nuo karto yra normalu, tačiau kai tokios emocijos kaip beviltiškumas ir neviltis ilgainiui nepasitraukia, gali būti, kad prasidėjo depresija. 
Depresija ne tik suteikia gyvenimui liūdesio, bet ir keičia mąstymą, savijautą bei kasdienį funkcionavimą. 
Depresija gali trukdyti gebėjimui dirbti, mokytis, valgyti, miegoti ar tiesiog mėgautis gyvenimu. Išgyventi dieną gali atrodyti neįveikiama užduotis. 
Nesvarbu kaip beviltiškai jaučiatės depresija yra įveikiama. Suprasdami savo depresijos priežastis, pastebėdami jos simptomus galite pradėti pirmus žingsnius geros savijautos link.

  • Im starting to realize that a lot of things that I did in the past were extremely inappropriate and wrong. I did stalk my two first favorite persons at my highschool campus, I did harass them with multiple fake phone numbers, I did become so unhealthy that their parents had to get involved, and I did threaten suicide when they wanted to leave me. Theres definitely more stuff, they werent perfect either but I was the one who ruined so many friendships and relationships because of my undiagnosed BPD. My boyfriend now is very understanding and kind, but firm, and I appreciate and love him for that.

  • We as a modern society have been completely controlled by food. To the point where we depend on it so much we feel sick and lethargic without it. Breakfast 🧇snack🍟lunch🍔snack🍌dinner🍜dessert🧁 Food has been one of the biggest tools to control the masses and also one of the biggest reasons for disease. ⠀
⠀
It takes a lot of energy to heal the body. It takes a lot of energy to digest food.  When your body is always busy digesting,  it can’t work on other things like healing, restoring and regeneration of new cells. Once you stop digestion, amazing things can happen. ⠀
⠀
Did you know 70% of the immune system is in the gut? If your gut is compromised, your body is going to show it in one way or another —constipation, bloating, diarrhea, hormonal imbalance, acne, infertility, anxiety, depression, autoimmune disease. The list goes on and on. ⠀
⠀
Clearly something isn’t right. Clearly eating all day everyday isn’t working. So why keep going down the same path? The path that leads to disease
.
You don’t need another diet. You don’t need pharmaceutical drugs. You need to heal (fast) and let your body do its thing. ✨

  • 2017

Sommer 2017 kam ich in die 10 Klasse. Der Ausschluss aus der Klassengemeinschaft hat mir immer weiter zugesetzt. Im August hat mich der erste Täter das erste Mal über Facebook angeschrieben. Wir verstanden uns bei schreiben ganz gut und er ist der Sohn einer Jugendfreundin meiner Mutter, von daher war für mich alles okay damals. Das erste Treffen fand dann auch bald statt, Anfang Oktober, nach meinem 16 Geburtstag. Wir verstanden uns gut, er erzählte und schrieb nur immer viel über Sex, seine Probleme untenrum und so weiter... Am 31.10 haben wir uns dann zum zweiten Mal getroffen, da hat er mir meinen ersten Kuss „gestohlen“ und es kam zu dem erste Übergriff. Am 27.11 kam es dann zu dem zweiten Übergriff, ein traumatisches Erlebnis für mich. Nachdem er weg war wollte ich meiner Mutter erzählen was er gemacht hat, aber ich war so durcheinander, dass sie es einfach nicht verstehen konnte. Ich konnte es damals nicht einordnen was er getan hatte, was passiert war, ob das jetzt unrecht war oder nicht. Die Tage danach konnte man mich nicht anfassen, ein paar Tage danach habe ich vor Wut usw gegen den Schrank geschlagen und mich selbst verletzt. In dieser Zeit habe ich mich auf eine Ausbildungsstelle beim Finanzamt beworben, weil ich die Schule einfach nicht mehr aushalten konnte.

  • 💔Dear Diary.
.
I get flashbacks of my hurtful past but I always come back to the present. I don't want to think about it. .
.
Yesterday I remembered how I lost my first child 6years ago. I tried not to think about it, I don't want to think about it, because it hurts so much.
.
How can a stupid mistake of a scared lost teenager haunt her so much like this. It has to stop, but I don't know how to make it stop. And that is just one of many pains I feel.
.
💔😔.

  • That flu was a DOOZY. ⁠
.⁠
But I'm back. To be honest, I don't want to be. When ya get knocked down physically, it can really mess with you mentally and emotionally. All I see is a really really long road with no end in sight. ⁠
.⁠
Since being sick, I've tried to convince myself that I should just change the name back and pretend this never happened. Then I went to church today where they spoke on being refined through fire. I guess these silly little squares are my crucible. Melting and molding and refining is not a painless short process, but I do believe the process is worth it. ⁠
.⁠
"God who foresaw your tribulation has specifically armed you to go through it, not without pain, but without stain." -CS Lewis⁠

So, let's clean out the impurities of bad Christian theology around mental illness and watch God turn this hunk of Borderline Personality Disorder metal into something truly beautiful that reflect's its Creator.

  • Sometimes this journey is frustrating. It can feel disheartening to catch yourself falling back into old patterns or behaviors when you’ve worked so hard to break out of those habits.

But healing isn’t linear, and it’s usually a slower process than we would like for it to be.

Don’t let this be a reason to give up. Little by little, you are getting closer to where you want to be.

Keep going 💪🏻❤️

  • I’ve been asked to make a post re: grief. So here it is.

Sometimes the pain will hit you so hard it will take your breath away.
The acute feeling of sadness will take over for a moment and you’ll feel completely engulfed.

Letting this process happen is a step in healing that I didn’t realize was so important. I didn’t know it helped facilitate movement through the waves of deep seeded grief.

It’s in these moments that leaning into the emotions and letting them come and go is important. Interference is a breeding ground for a resurgence of the emotions later on.

Remembering that you aren’t alone is crucial. Recalling the love and support that surrounds you is imperative.

You will get through this.

You will be okay.

  • "Remember that you once dreamed of being were you are now" - 
Found that quote online and it's so true! Last year at this time I was hopeless, going back to anorexia seemed like the only way. 
Today I'm struggling, yes I'm not going to deny that but at least I try to get strength from the emotions I feel. I know that I'm not well but one bad day in recovery is still a lot better than a day trapped in the mindset of an eating disorder. We got this. We can make our way out of here. 👊❤
