It's been a rough one. The baby was having tummy trouble last night and was tossing and turning and laying on top of me so I got poor sleep and it's really affecting my mood today. My anxiety is high, my heart rate has been at a steady 105 bpm even while resting. I had to fire my dads main caregiver on Saturday so I had to take the shift today so he wouldn't be alone. I had to help him shower, get breakfast and meds prepared, clean the bathroom and just alot of other stuff. I'm home now for a few until I go back to give him meds and then fix dinner. I feel so stressed and like a episode is coming on, but with this much anxiety I cant tell if its depressive or manic. I'm leaning towards depressive, I've had intrusive thoughts that started last night and continued into today. I just want to bury my head and cry. I was doing so good for a few weeks. Why now.

You know? today was an amazing day.
Let me tell you that during two clases I was surrounded by people, talking and just joking about anything and it was great while it lasted, after that I went to the bathroom, took a deep breath because anxiety was kicking in, but that is okay, is okay if you need to take a break from something in life for your sake, it’s okay to make mistakes because you learn, it’s okay if you take time away from others or from school/work to take care of yourself because nothing will ever work if you don’t feel comfortable in the skin you live in.
Almost FDOE 😂
-Breakfast was french toast with berries, almond butter and ricotta cheese on top with some coconut sugar -Snack was hummus with carrots, chips and avocado dip with #everythingbutthebagelseasoning

Anxiety is such a difficult thing to describe. It took me years to even find out that the things I was feeling have a name. Now it helps me to name what’s keeping me up at night, what’s making my mind race. And it helps me to remember what symptoms can come along with it. So I can separate myself from the anxiety and the way it makes me feel. Remember that I am not my illness, nor the symptoms it brings.

"I shake instantly as I enter the crowded room.
I become paralyzed by the overwhelming energies that surround me.
I try to break free from this cage I locked myself in.
Social expectations slowly killing me as I try to control my heartbeat.
Instead I suffocate, my breath running rapidly.
I look for familiar faces, hoping that just one look will free me from this fear ridden cage.
I shuffle in search of a place to give me breathing room.
I find my corner, I sigh deeply.
I tell myself to speak out, to reach out and meet someone.
I want to say hello, but this cage is more powerful than my will.
My perception taunts me, making me feel like I am awkward, weird, an outsider, the elephant in the room.
My flight response is fired up, I want to run away from my fear.
Then an inner strength begins to bubble up inside and I tell myself that I am in control, I am the master of my own destiny.
This gives me a boost, I whisper to a stranger.. Hi.. they can't hear me, and I shatter in an instant.
This attachment is killing me, I need to let go of this fear.
Through putting myself in those scary atmospheres, I will learn to use my voice.
I will then cry out to the universe and show my soul.
I will share my story through the wisdom that resides within me.
I am the storyteller, and this gives you my heart"

For et par timer siden havde jeg et stort smil på læberne - fordi det havde været en GOD dag. Så kom livet i vejen og viste sig fra sin grummeste side - og derfor blev smilet erstattet af en voldsom uro og en meget bekendt ked-af-det-hed, da hele ulykkeligheden bunder i gamle (og kroniske) spøgelser i min familie... Nåh, men jeg deler lige grunden til dette smil👆🏻: jeg har i dag taget et stort skridt og gjort noget jeg LÆNGE har haft lyst til. Jeg har købt en prangende læbestift; hvilket jeg virkelig har skulle samle mod til. At iføre mig noget på den her måde stikker nemlig meget imod hvordan jeg “normalt” fungerer. Jeg er vokset op med at være mester i at gemme mig selv væk - og jeg har med årene udviklet det dårligste selvværd man overhoved kan tænke sig🌪Så det at tiltrække mig opmærksomhed er stadig meget svært for mig - og jeg har evigt og altid “lyst” (eller måske trang) til at være lillebitte og ikke fylde det mindste i verden; for på den måde gør jeg også mindre skade... Jeg har virkelig lyst til at ændre på den her side af mig, og jeg hungrer en udvikling på det på punkt. Jeg vil gerne kunne skide på hvad andre tænker og gøre lige det ‘Marie’ har lyst til. At investere i den her læbestift i dag er et skridt i den retning, og jeg er mega glad for at have gjort det🌼 Nu håber jeg bare på at der i morgen venter mig en god (og mild) dag; for det ville altså være dejligt💭🙆🏼♀️
SWIPE to read more about obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) ➡️🧠
We’ve probably all been guilty of saying “I’m a little bit OCD” but we need to try not to. OCD in reality can completely control the people it affects and can be a living nightmare. OCD leaves you in a constant state of anxiety, fear and dread. For me OCD is obsessive thoughts, behaviours and avoidance about contamination, making mistakes, forgetting things, conserving resources and reality. It gets worse when I’m stressed, upset or dealing with change. It makes me feel extremely anxious and overwhelmed. It makes me a perfectionist. It makes me feel overly responsible. It controls what I eat. So please educate yourself about OCD - ask me anything 🙂 #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #ocd #ocdawareness #depression #anxiety #trauma #therapy #recovery #healing #ptsd #anorexiarecovery #edwarrior #eatingdisorderrecovery
I'm falling again . I'm alone again.
We are HERE TO HELP!
One question often asked is, “Is there such a thing as getting over post-traumatic stress disorder?” That is a question that is very difficult to answer. Treatments are available to certainly help diminish the effects of PTSD. But, some people will argue if it ever goes away completely.
One treatment making headway in the fight against PTSD is the use of cannabis oil. Some patients feel as though it helped significantly in reducing the agonizing symptoms. However, official studies have been difficult to come by, due to fighting the endless red tape and bureaucracy. Studies have been promising though, with military personnel claiming relief with the use of cannabis oil when other treatments have failed.
Other medical issues that cannabis oil treats include the following:
Anecdotal evidence in the use of cannabis oil and PTSD, while not official studies, has been overwhelmingly encouraging for those who suffer from PTSD. In fact, it has been so encouraging, that the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) in the US has given the approval for a study to be conducted on the use of cannabis as medicine.
