  • 5+1 CARA BANTU RAWAT TEKANAN & KEMURUNGAN
.
Lain orang lain cara "coping" mereka. Di antara cara “rawat” diri sendiri dan ada yang mengamalkan mereka berjaya :
.
1- Solat- Belajar cari Guru Mursyid setiap bacaan serta perbuatan dalam solat. Kadangkala kita solat tetapi tidak rasa. Mungkin disebabkan "lari" bacaan al-Fatihah atau Hati tidak hayati solah.

2-Banyakkan Istighfar, Tahlil & Selawat (100x selepas Subuh & Asar) – Ingatkan diri yang ini ujian yang perlu saya ” lawan “. Saya manusia, saya hamba, pasti saya banyak berbuat salah mungkin pada Allah ﷻ, Rasulullah ﷺ yang mungkin cinta masih biasa-biasa, atau rakan- rakan maka ujian ini dikirim sebagai teguran.
.
3-Luahkan – Kongsikan keadaan diri dengan beberapa individu yang dipercayai. Saya ulangi kepercayaan serta kerahsiaan mereka tinggi. Jumpa Kaunselor Berdaftar, Pegawai Psikologi. Jika rakan, teman, taulan pastikan mereka sentiasa berfikiran positif dan mendengar secara aktif. Ia banyak membantu mengendurkan banyak emosi ” jahat “.
.
4-Al Fatihah – atas saranan para alim Ulama, sesuai dengan hadith Sayyiduna Muhammad ﷺ sebelum tidur,sedekahkan Al Fatihah... Bacalah atas dirimu surah Al-Ikhlas, surah Al-Falaq, surah An-Nas tiga kali. Tiuplah sedikit dikedua tanganmu setiap sekali, usaplah mukamu dengan keduanya, dan bahagian tubuhmu yang kamu mampu sampai. Ulangilah terus hal itu beberapa kali siang malam dan ketika hendak tidur. Bacalah pula atas dirimu surah Al-Fatihah di waktu apa pun, siang dan malam hari. Bacalah ayat Kursi ketika berbaring di tempat tidurmu untuk tidur. .
Berdo’alah kepada Allah dengan doo bacalah...
.
لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ الْعَظِيمُ الْحَلِيمُ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْعَظِيمِ، لَا إِلَهَ إِلَّا اللَّهُ رَبُّ السَّمَوَاتِ، وَرَبُّ الْأَرْضِ، وَرَبُّ الْعَرْشِ الْكَرِيمِ
.
5-Menangis – lepaskan perasaan.
.
6-Pujuk Hati Pujuk Diri – Yakinkan diri ia hanya sangkaan kita sahaja. Bantu hati, perasaan dan minda untuk buang jauh- jauh segala prasangka terhadap sesiapa dan diri sendiri.

  • I asked her last night if we were doing anything tomorrow. She kept tell me idk. Which usually means no. Then today Liv asked me to babysit. I said yes because I had no idea that my mom was planning something for today. And you know I try and get my mom to do stuff with all of us. So I’m excluded once again. So they all get to go to half way damn. And I’m stuck at home. I flipped shit on her too. So she throws in my face how she paid 500$ on my birthday/ graduation party and how I owe 116$ for my summer school. Like does she not understand she’s a mom? She threw in my face that “everything doesn’t revolve around me.” How much does she ever do for me. Yeah she may spend more time with me but that’s not my fault either. She acts like she wouldn’t do the same shit for the other girls. It’s kinda sad that your mom does more for me than my mom ever had. I can’t wait to graduate. Get my license and job so I can start living the life I want. I hope she has a wonderful life without me. Now her and mam are texting about the whole situation. I’m so tired of this family. I told her she was excluding me. She told mam “that’s not what I was trying to do.” Why would she not tell me about going to half way damn until after Liv asked me to babysit? She said she was planning this out since yesterday. She’ll learn when I move out and want nothing to do with her. I’ll ignore the shit out of her on purpose too. I don’t care anymore. I’m done pretending that I’m her best friend and that I love her so much. ——————————————————
I hope y’all are having a much better day than me. Sorry for the rant. ——————————————————
Keep kickin ass you little warriors ——————————————————

  • So yesterday I felt like I was about to explode! Everything and everybody was doing my head in. And I feel the same today!! Woke up at 4.20am WTF! Did everything I could to change my mood or just go with it yesterday but nothing worked. I had a bath, we took the pup for a walk after tea, then holly went into Tesco for some bits and I said for her to get some Nutella for pancakes this morning. So last night I ate half a jar with bread and butter and now I feel disgusted with myself. I just have zero will power most days when it comes to food. If it’s sugary, fatty, salty or full of carbs then it’s getting stuffed right down!! I looked 9 months pregnant last night which is not a good thing for me to see in the mirror. I drank hardly any water ate 7 bags of space raiders, a bar of chocolate and 2 bags of plain crisps. I’m disgusting. I have no control somedays in my greed. Because that’s what it is it’s greed. I don’t need to eat all that I’m just greedy. And that off switch that has followed me around my whole life was well and truly switched on and nothing was switching it off. I was truly in fuck it mood I don’t give a shit if I gain 3 pounds over the weekend. But I do care. I care a lot. Because it’s something else in my life that at times I have no control over, like once it was alcohol, favourite persons, drugs, SH, dangerous stuff like drink driving or drug driving, casual sex, putting myself in dangerous situations. And now it’s food. I just wish I could accept my body for what it is but I worry so much about the health implications, heart disease, which my mum and nan both died of, I worry about clots, strokes, being left with completely life changing injuries. Not being able to talk or communicate. And I’m feeling like this all because I ate shite all day yesterday. So I’m not in a great mood this morning.  Holly goin to be out most of the day with the nephew so I’ll have a few hours on my own!!! Yay!! I’m not nice to be around in these moods I’m snappy, irritable and grumpy. Hope you all have a lovely sunny Sunday much love 💕 xxxx. •

  • If the conversation is making you uneasy on a degree you can’t keep up with, avoid indulging in it. You’re allowed to compose yourself before talking about it. It will give yourself a fair idea and clear thoughts about what exactly is bothering you. 
Take your time; think about it.

  • social media is not something you should look to for approval. that is something I struggled with for so long, and sometimes still do. fight what social media tells you that you should look like.

  • Today marks four years since life changed dramatically for my family and we lost someone hugely important. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of the big guy and he’s the reason I’m doing all of this.

I’m running the @chimarathon and I’m raising money for @mhfnz to help support those who are struggling with mental illness - but it’s not just about the money, it’s about the message... Mental illness is something that impacts all of our lives in one way or another, yet it’s still so difficult to speak about openly. Please get behind me by donating or sharing the message. (Link in bio) And thank you so much to everyone who has donated and/or shared already!

Be kind to one another and don’t be afraid to speak up if you’re struggling! ♥️

  • If you haven’t experienced mental health issues yourself or don’t know much about it. I encourage you to educate yourself. 📚
•
There could be someone close to you suffering 😔 & you either don’t realize or you think they are just being a drama queen or having a bad month.
•
In this day and age we need to arm 🛡ourselves with the information & tools 🛠to not only help others but to help ourselves if we ever find that we are in a downward spiral. ♥️
•
Remember “knowledge is power”, be patient, understanding, empathetic & always choose kindness. ♥️🥰

  • 🤷🏻‍♀️ Just sayin like.... ⁣
⁣
Pretty sure we’ve all wanted to sent this message some Point right? Awareness is essential about symptoms, impact on life etc but the number one thing people can never fully grasp (and to be honest I struggle with) is that this illness is just like what Forest Gump famously said about life and chocolates... you never know what you’re gonna get.... ⁣
⁣
Just because we did the thing yesterday, last week, last month even last year it doesn’t mean we can again, or will right away again. Some days are better, some days are literally the hardest to get through. Hell life can change from morning to afternoon. It’s not a one size fits all day in day out. ⁣
⁣
But with that in mind I just want you to take a moment to realise actually what that means for you. That you have so much strength, courage and perseverance to get through every single day, waking up not knowing what you’re facing but dealing anyway and keep on keeping on. You’re fabulous, you’re amazing and you need to remind yourself of that more often. Like right now. Go on give yourself some credit. You deserve it. 🌟💪

  • I started this account in the summer of 2015 as a way to 1. cure the boredom as I spent some time in a psychiatric ward and 2. share cute pictures of my soon to be service dog in training, Percie.
.
I expected it to be a fun pastime where I could see other cute puppies while posting my own videos and pictures.
What I certainly didn’t foresee is what this platform means to me now: not the number of followers or likes, but the space this has become - one that fosters transparency, kindness, inclusivity.
.
But this platform has not always been a place of transparency for me.
For a long time I feared posting about my struggles with severe mental illness. More and more of people I knew in “real life” began following this account, and I felt ashamed and overwhelmed.
Would they think differently of me?
Would they find me attention-seeking, a complainer, dramatic?
I know now that was years of internalized stigma talking - we are not taught as children that the turmoil in our most important organ is actually important.
.
What I could not foresee would be the impact of online connection. How wonderfully odd is it that we can reach out across miles of Earth without ever moving and yet be moved, in our hearts and at our core, by complete strangers?
.
I am grateful for you - yes you - and the sharing of support and wisdom and understanding that has occurred over these past few years. .
So whether you have been with me since the beginning, or perhaps you just joined today, let me thank you - and those words are simply not enough - for being here with me.
.
Finally, here is something I have learned: sometimes the most frightening thing we can do is to show up. But it is also the bravest thing we can do. To show up, as we are.
Thank you for showing up with me, as you are, and for allowing me to be as I am.
Much love always,
C+P

    Finally, here is something I have learned: sometimes the most frightening thing we can do is to show up. But it is also the bravest thing we can do. To show up, as we are.
    Thank you for showing up with me, as you are, and for allowing me to be as I am.
    Much love always,
    C+P
