Enchant Me blend yet, you’re truly missing out on this magical blend of superfoods! I’ve never slept so well since: a) being diagnosed with general anxiety disorder and b) having a puppy who likes to move a lot along my body throughout the night. 🙌😴 #dopenaturally #bedtime #anxiety #puppy #beautysleep
I have #anxiety
and I was totally freaking out about giving myself an injection for my #psoriasis
. I literally watched about 10 YouTube videos and read the instructions a hundred times.
Y'all.. It was all in my head. Super easy and I didn't feel any pain.
Now let's hope this helps. I could really use a break.

I love my necklace!! As a lover of all things Doctor Who, and a long time sufferer of anxiety and depression, it couldn't be more perfect.

Dang it was windy outside today! I’ll say it again, whoever named Chicago the Windy City literally never stepped foot in Oklahoma. Or how about this one: “you might live in Oklahoma if you have to check the field for the package that was delivered to your front porch...” yup that’s happened before 😂🤷🏻♀️
Tomorrow night at Life Teen, I’m going to share with you guys my history of anxiety and depression and how I learned to trust in the Lord. Please say a prayer for me! We’ll have an amazing band leading us in praise and worship while in adoration. Invite a friend! Some of our friends from St. Maria Goretti are joining us! .

Butterscotch Blossom is 1 year old today. My first published word companion. Only a collection of self soothing word therapy and creative writing and poetry that I used to revive myself from wild anxiety and fear. God gave me, and all of us a testimony to share, in some way, for somebody. I believe we are living for so many other people besides ourselves. And so... that’s why I always wanna live now. I’m always thinking about The person who I don’t even know exist, but at some point in this life will read something I said and decide to live too. Thanks deeply to every soul who reaches out in confidence boldly to me to share your own stories. & for every reader and customer who has bought either of my books every month since the day of their release. ••••••••••••••••••••
Since last year, my pen, my words and I have grown so so much. I’ve been able to invest in the swell of my ideas, in the companions that are actual letters becoming affirmations. The blossom journey introduced me, and I’m just humbled by its honesty and by every life and home it’s in now. I’m ready to start creating something even greater, but I’m taking my time. I’m encouraging everyone to, like my book says,blossom at their own pace and rhythm as well. You can still buy either of my books at the link in my bio❤️ love, the Butterscotch Blossom
Oh how I’d love myself if my bones jutted out a lot more 😭😭😭
So this was a pretty big deal at the Memorial. Tom was planning to read Scripture, but thought he may break down so backed out. The pastor asked me if a grandchild would want to and when I said the oldest one in attendance was only 10 he said she could it. When I asked Tessa if she’d be interested, her face lit up. She gave me a resounding yes and couldn’t wait. She had to go up twice, each time reading 2 passages. I can’t even count how many people came up to her, Tom, and I afterwards to say what a good job she did. Very few people there knew about her Selective Mutism, so I shared with a select few just so they could see the whole picture of why this was so monumental. They were stunned, saying they never would have guessed she had social anxiety at one time. Her Nana would have been so very proud.
You are more than your illness. You are not alone. I love you!

"...We can call the lack of success of those strategies [addictions and compulsion] dysregulation, which occurs when people have temper tantrums, act out violently, or have to live with the aftereffects of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD)... PTSD and it's intrusive memories are part of what make the brain into a savage and painful place to live in when the default mode network turns on its own person, altering the sense of self (Peyton 28-29)."
