Ever since her mom left home (and her family) for a job in Canada, Molly has really been struggling. She wants everything she does to be perfect—but it’s more than just her being a perfectionist. Soon the counting she always does in her head and the desire for everything to be just right start to take over her life. #bookstagram #schoollibrary #mentalillness #obsessivecompulsivedisorder

Please please parties involved pls don't get upset by this. Just some bile I had to purge, just a collage dealing with  particularly ironic circumstances, that I wasn't able to talk about. Idk if it's a healthy way to deal W it, but it's better than letting it fester. Eeeeeeee!!!! This is dumb, but it's a step towards being more open.

It was truly a day to remember...not only did I study art/art history/French at @urochester , but one of my first jobs post-college was working at @christiesinc .
.
Seeing an artist’s ACTUAL inspiration was mesmerizing and humbling and made the breathtaking images he created all the more magnificent❣️
.
.
Definitely worth a visit to Arles and St Rémy to see Van Gogh’s views for several years ~ even though none of his original artwork is there!
.
.
My photo of the visit today next to his paintings of the same spots/views ♥️

Today’s meals:
1) 0% fat yogurt with coffee flavour + a cup of coffee
2) 250 ml sugarfree Redbull
3) Mixed salad with tomatoes and canned tuna (no dressing/salt)
4) Steamed codfish with some EVO oil and lemon juice + mixed salad with bell pepper, tomato, carrot, fennel
...
I also had 6 chewing gums, so all in all something like 374 kcal.
Glad to be back on track after my last 4 binge-days🤙🏼

Prilagamo nekaj izjav iz sveta športa in vam želimo čudovit začetek tedna! Boljši bo, če ga pospremite s športno aktivnostjo.🤸‍♀️

Anxiety is not something that’s just going to “go away.” I cannot tell you how often I hear bad advice from people who have no idea what anxiety entails.

⌛⏰🕦 Look at the time, putxs! It's Get Real O'Clock!
There's no cure for mental illness. None. There's only healing and treating, but no curing. The reason I haven't been active in most social medias all summer long is that my mental illnesses have been getting the best of me and I had no idea. I was doing so well between 2017-2018, and my mistake was thinking that "doing well" meant "fully recovered and never worrying about it again" and that's not how chronic illnesses work. I'm here to remind you that no matter how recovered you think you are, your depression is literally WAITING to tiptoe back into your life. Your mental illness might be INVISIBLE, but it's there & It's chronic as fuck. So, just to be safe, NEVER stop treating yourself. And most importantly, remember that no illness defines you. Love yourself, eh? 💕

Lyrics: (by Iris)
As we see the stars in the sky they’re not giving out and it’s so rare you see the more human side of me
I just want to show you that things aren’t exactly as they seem
Earth, Sky, Fire, Water, Night, and Day they don’t combine rather unite it’s more than just something that takes up time
Elemental power is made of what they all mean to me
-the more human side of me

As someone on the internet once said, “we’re basically plants with complicated emotions”. Apart from needing sunlight, water, and decent temperature, we all require different things in order to survive and grow. What are some things that are a requirement for your growth?

🕯Compassion fatigue can take hold of any person who cares for others who are in pain or suffering. We know this to be true of parents and caregivers who have children suffering from mental health challenges.
🕯We recommend the “Self-Care Plan” that includes identifying your personal needs and finding ways to release stress. Some suggestions? Walking, bike riding, hugging a pet, reading and journaling. We also believe that talking to other parents who share your concerns can help, which is why we created The Parents Support Network™
🕯What would you add?

I was reading Lauren Slater’s Welcome to My Country over the summer that I was starting up my private practice. I had just moved to Savannah, had a newish baby who was both gorgeous and challenging. I didn’t know it yet but #postpartumdepression had settled in mightily. I was alone in a new city, far from home, and it was approximately 10 million degrees outside. 
This book is such a refuge – for anyone who has struggled, anyone who has supported a loved one through emotional distress or mental illness, and for any clinician who’s trying to balance that fine line between My Stuff and Other People’s Stuff. This quote always stuck with me, guiding me through the overwhelming effort of getting back to work. It helped me remember to surrender to the stress, the fear, the not knowing. 
Here, 4 years later, surrender is one of the most common themes with many of the clients I sit with. Being with the discomfort. Finding our quiet, brave wisdom. Falling so we can learn to stand again.

My BED voice whispers in my ear that I should be ashamed and feel self-loathing because I intend to eat this luxurious mini snack while watching Youtube. My BED wants me to be ashamed of the fact that I love and enjoy four squares of @lindtssverige excellent dark chocolate with "a touch of seasalt" as well as a small fist of organic pecans. The whole purpose with my BEDs voice is that if I'm going to eat this I can just release me from all inhibitions and start binging tonight because I've spoiled my calorie intake for today because of the gluten-free cookie I ate together with my evening snack. Why should I feel such guilt and shame about eating something I enjoy in small quantities? I'll at least try to enjoy these delights without thinking about all the negative things my BED is trying to trick me into believing.

Happy Monday everyone!!! I hope your day and week is going well so far. Mine has been rough. First, I started off with what I call “Crohnie probs” at 6:00 this morning. So I started off the day in pain and weak and achy. Then, because of my Crohnie probs, I woke up a lot later than I usually do and that stressed me out. I immediately started worrying about all I had to do and being behind schedule. That’s one thing that makes me quite anxious-being behind schedule. So, my heart has been racing since 9:00 this morning and my mind is in a million different places. Ugh, I hate this feeling. Even deep breathing isn’t helping. As I am typing this I’m trying to deep breathe again and relax myself. I must admit, despite my worrying and stressing, I have accomplished quite a bit. Which is astonishing to me considering how much pain I’m in. God really is by my side today. Ah, I’m so grateful. That’s definitely what I’m grateful for today. God keeping me going no matter how much pain I’m in. I’m not letting my Crohn’s and gastroparesis stop me from accomplishing things. My goal this week is to simply manage my pain and do the best I can. I hope you all achieve your goals this week. And I hope and pray you all have a good and relaxing rest of your day and night and week!!! #monday #happymonday #mondaymotivation #God #grateful #iamstrong #grateful #pain #motivation #dontgiveup #warrior #mentalhealth #mentalillness #anxiety #depression #stress #illness #chronicillness #invisibleillness #ibs #ibd #crohns #gastritis #gastroparesis #spoonie #strength #staystrong 😊😄😣😩😓🙏🏻💪🏻💜💖

Don’t change yourself to win someone’s heart. Stay true and you’ll find someone who likes you for being you.

In all honesty, I wrote this about anxiety but found that it took a darker path then anticipated and also fit with depression.  Upon reading it time and again I flip flopped on whether or not I really wanted to post this then realized I would be selfish not to. Why you ask? Because I honestly feel like you can take out the word depression and add whatever chronic and/or mental illness you are afflicted with at the moment.  And because of that I couldn't just keep these words to myself in case they are needed. For all those that need to hear it, you are not alone ever. Never be ashamed to reach out for help.

As someone on the internet once said, “we’re basically plants with complicated emotions”. Apart from needing sunlight, water, and decent temperature, we all require different things in order to survive and grow. What are some things that are a requirement for your growth? Comment below.

People who are aware of their mental illness actually took the time to go seek help and to fight to become a better person.  My mother who refuses to get help bc there is nothing wrong with her but always point the finger at me, shame me, and makes me feel like I’m unworthy to be here. In the process runs my name through the ground and tries to turn my entire family against me, so they can hate me.  She has done this since I was a child too young to understand, but I have been in this fight a lifetime.  She is the reason I need the help in the first place, so I can undo and fix the trauma and abuse she caused me. Please know that you are better than your abusers because you took the time and the biggest challenge in life to try to undo what they did to you. There is nothing more challenging. You are the true warrior. 🙏🏼
