I am forever going to be someone who tells you "I'm fine" when I'm really not or will smile when I know all I want to do is cry. Showing your true feelings is hard but it's so important even if you only show who you really are to one person it could help you tremendously. Don't be afraid to open up to the people you love and trust most. #itsokaytonotbeokay #feelings #findyourperson #start_the_wave #loveyourlife
With Fall and Winter just around the corner, so comes Seasonal Affective Disorder (otherwise known as S.A.D or Winter Depression). This situational type of depression is influenced by one’s environment, and can impact one’s thoughts or feelings causing them to feel depressed or anxious during the winter months. #LetsTakeTime to understand the common symptoms of S.A.D: tiredness, fatigue, depression, body aches, trouble concentrating, crying spells, poor sleep, and decreased activity levels. What are some helpful methods you’ve tried to combat seasonal affective disorder? (Photograph by Regine Peterson)
We all have off days where we would rather cry than smile and that’s okay. The important thing is not to stay there. Reach out to your loved ones for support and remember that you won’t feel that way forever. #latergram #friday #friyay #smile #fakeittillyoumakeit #keepswimming #itsokaytonotbeokay #itgetsbetter #selfie #thatsalligot 😬
Men suffer with mental illness too. Men are bipolar too. Men are depressed too. As men we shouldn’t feel ashamed of these things. For so long I was so embarrassed that I couldn’t handle my own emotions as an adult male, I felt like a failure with such a deep sense of shame, like a loser, like my bipolar disorder was a dark secret I needed to keep . I felt like people would make fun of me or judge me or just think I was making the whole thing up. Part of me felt like I wasn’t actually depressed with disorders, that I was making it up for attention and I needed to just man up and snap out of it. I hit a lot of really dark, lonely times thinking I wasn’t enough of a man, that I wasn’t as good as other men out there. We need to get rid of that stigma that just because we are men we have to be strong 24.7, we have to be emotionally stable, we have to be in control, we have to be okay. Men suffer with bipolar disorder too. Men - you are no less than the next man, you’re still valid. #suicidepreventionmonth #suicideawareness #depressionisreal #youreworthmore #beatdepression #standwithme #suicideprevention #letstalkitthrough #letstalk #imhereforyou #mentalhealthawareness #bipolarawareness #bipolar #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #menlivingwithbpd #menwithbipolar #bipolarmen #mensmentalhealth #menfeelpaintoo #menhavefeelingstoo #itsokaytonotbeokay #itsokaynottobeokay #youarebeautiful #youarestrong #youarecourageous and #youareenough
Find the magic in every day: set goals, believe in yourself, make forward progress, get a good nights sleep and repeat tomorrow. As long as you are focused on the future you are moving in the right direction and even baby steps should be celebrated! #momboss #itsokaytonotbeokay
Having a body is fun. I’m pretty guilty of wasting a lot of my precious time criticizing my body but I got so sick of it one day and vowed to be better. I am learning to celebrate having a body through yoga, meditation, mindfulness and the love and support of @albanprnn. If any of you are struggling with this out there in the world, I hope you know that it can get better😊❤️
People say a picture is worth a thousand words... I truly believe that. This photo captures that and so much more. I am legitimately happy here. Yesterday was the first time in 6 months I woke up genuinely happy. I feel such a sense of relief in myself now because I am happy. I am so glad that I was able to get my happy back. #itsokaytonotbeokay #igotmyhappyback #livingmybestlife #love #happy #picture
I’ve had a challenging week, sometimes you just have weeks when you feel like you’re hitting rock bottom. I had that last night when trying to spin too many plates caught up with me, and it really hits you when your inability to juggle so many things means you end up dropping something which means you end up unwittingly letting other people down in a big way. So last night I bottomed out, took a long hard look at things, and this morning I felt brighter, like I was coming out fighting. A realisation that I can’t do everything on my own, and asking a couple of people for help with things, is like a weight off my shoulders. @muddleddaddy ’s post this morning reinforced to me that I was right to ask for help with things. So I did what I often do for a lift, bought a couple of books. I’ve been wanting to read @mattzhaig ’s books for ages. I also got round to buying @feathering_the_empty_nest ’s book #askmehisname . I’ve agonised for quite a while about whether to buy it. When I’m feeling down, I compound it (I know I do this) by comparing myself to others - is someone doing more? Are they handling their grief better? The list is endless. Elle is always such an incredibly positive and inspiring figure, so when I’m feeling down, that sort of comparison can beat me down. But today (fighting back, remember) I realised that life isn’t a competition, and grief CERTAINLY isn’t a competition. We all just find our own courses. And that’s okay! So I’m really looking forward to reading Elle and Teddy’s story. So as well as the books I got today, I also did what I always do when I’m fighting back, I bought myself a new notebook (life is too short for boring notebooks) and made lists for the different aspects of my life. I love a good list! Yesterday I watched @challengesophie ’s Ted talk, which I always find inspiring, and her slogan, “You’ve got one life, live it” really helped to lift my dark clouds. I realised that I’ve seen what REAL rock bottom looks like. I’ve stared into the abyss. I’ve said a final goodbye to my son. When I’m doubting myself, I need to remember that if I can survive that, I can survive anything. But I don’t have to do it alone. And that’s okay!
Lack of posts today cause I've had a rough one mentally. I only just reached my goals for the day and I'm feeling a little disappointed in myself 🙁 #weightlosstransformation #weightlossjourney #weightloss #tryingtogetfit #slowbutsure #health #healthyfood #selfie #workout #gettingfit #gettingfitter #healthyeating #walking #steps #samsunghealth #stepcounter #smashedit #itsokaytonotbeokay
One of our staff members attended the 2018 Illinois suicide prevention summit for Suicide Prevention Month. One of our partners Riveredge Hospital helped put it together along with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. It was a great day full of amazing presenters. #stopsuicide #bethevoice #itsokaytonotbeokay
It’s been 24 hours since I’ve had a fever. And in that 24 hours, my whole WORLD is different. . For the next 75 days, I’m giving myself a shot in the belly twice a day. I’m taking an antibiotic. 4 times a day for the next 14 days. I still have 2 blood clots and ACTIVE C. Diff. . But I’m shaking it OFF. . I’m ALIVE. I am AT HOME. I AM BREATHING. . While I still have so much left to say about the last week, I just wanted to give an update. . I’m sleeping through the night. I’m getting my appetite back. I’m ON MY PERIOD — and it came ON TIME. Which means my body is OVULATING and doing its thang! I’m about to take a test for grad school that my professor so KINDLY allowed me to make up. I’m getting a lot of snuggle time with the pups and the hubs. And should things stay like this — I’ll be back to work on Monday!!!!!! . While it’s easy to focus on the negatives of chronic illness, I somehow changed that outlook a long time ago. The fact that I’m LIVING and spending time with the people I love — that’s what matters to me. And every single day I do that, I feel like I’ve got NOTHING to complain about! 💕 . I’ve got a lot planned for the rest of this year. So, stay tuned! ✨ In the meantime, know that I’m doing okay and your good vibes/love/prayers have meant everything. . Now, let’s shake off this bad energy and get ready for FALL! 🍁 . • • #fall #healthjourney #chronicillness #sickerthanyouraverage #healthylifestyle #colitis #cdiff #itsokaytonotbeokay #tightenthatponytail #goals #period #endtoendo #anxiety #plantbased
O•R•G•A•N•I•Z•E~ Anxiety is complicated, because it can be constant, intermittent, stress or fear induced, and situational. It can be triggered by feeling out of control. Unfortunately, we can’t always fix the cause of the anxiety, for example if we are worried about our kids getting into school or our sister’s divorce; however, in those situations I will cope by fixing something I can control. One way to do this is by organizing something that is chaotic. As my FIL says, I don’t like to see clutter. So I try to hide it or organize it. This dumping ground of a storage area in the laundry room, really was getting to me. With the amazing talent of @onetoothunderbite and his dad, they built this cabinet, and it provided me the ability to organize and declutter. Clearly it didn’t fix any of the other anxiety inducing situations in my life, but it was a relief nonetheless. I now look at the area with relief instead of irritation. Other examples of areas you could control when you feel anxious: a flower bed full of weeds, losing 5 pounds, getting a haircut, cleaning your bathroom, change the pictures in the frames of a room, rearrange furniture, or get rid of clothes in your closet that don’t fit or you don’t like anymore. #anxiety #anxietyrelief #organize #controlwhatyoucan #itsokaytonotbeokay #askforhelp #therapy #counseling #thisislife #rsorganizing
I've been trying to figure out what I actually want to do with my life for the last few weeks. I'm so used to trying to make everyone around me happy, that I rarely stop to think about myself. Now that I'm here, panic, anxiety and depression fluctuates, and it's been pretty difficult navigating myself out of it. I don't really have any experience in the career path I want to take, so I'm now on to trying to figure out what to do to get the experience. It's definitely driving me insane 😅 I just have to try and not loose sight of what I actually want to do in the mean time! If I've learnt anything though, don't do anything that doesn't fill you with joy. What's the point in settling for anything less than perfect? Do the things that make you the happiest 🌟 Image by @abbiepaulhus Megan x
Peace of mind this last week as Sophie has been safe in the hospital. Nights are restful. My mind has been at ease. It’s quite a difference from before. When we had late nights of searching. The stress of keeping her home. Burdening others with daily calls for help. Calling Dave home from work. Calling the police. Worrying if this is the time she gets hurt, or lost. Not being able to make dinner for the family. Or get Aaron to bed. It was chaotic. Riddled with anxiety. Always on my mind. And now we’ve been able to relax. Really unload our cares and worries. Trusting the safety of her new home. Residential isn’t just for the child. It allows the family time to reset. To recalibrate and get prepared to welcome her home.
Yesterday, I went on an adventure to check out @sipofhope and let me tell you this place is awesome. The food and coffee were great. Amazing peanut butter donut. The staff was so friendly! I loved the positive vibes, the mental health awareness, and information for help everywhere! We can’t be afraid to talk about our feelings, ourselves. it is okay to ask for help. it is okay to not be okay! #sipofhope #itsokaytonotbeokay #askforhelp #mentalhealthawareness #positivevibes #positiveenvironment #coffee #donuts #chicago #logansquare #fullertonave #amazing
Shoutout to Arbonne for the best skincare on the face of the planet. 💃🏼🔥🎉 My skin used to be covered in acne, acne scars, redness, discoloration, you name it. I used to refuse to leave the house unless I had a full face of makeup on because I was so self conscious. Flash forward to now my skin has never looked better! I change up my skincare routine from time to time but lately I’ve been using: Prepwork Cleansing Polish Arbonne Intelligence Genius Pads (Magic Eraser for your face) Prepwork Hydrating Dew Cream Re9 Intensive Renewal Serum Re9 Corrective Eye Cream Re9 Advanced Age Defying Neck Cream Prepwork Gel Eye Masks I use a combination of our Prepwork Line formulated specially for Millennials and our Re9 Anti Aging Line for preventative measures! When I say Arbonne has something for everyone I mean it. I prayed for my skin to be clear. Yesterday was the first time in I don’t remember how long that I wore a full face of makeup! Thank you Arbonne and Hello Healthy Glow!
“Chronic PTSD is a life threatening event and has to be treated or intensively managed by loved ones. During treatment, you must continue to fight, continue to seek insights into your experience, continue to read and to introspect, continue to seek out the company and advice of others.” David J. Morris 🦋✨💜 When I was diagnosed with #chronicptsd , the first thing I thought was I didn’t think that I was doing that bad for myself, and I was going to have to be admitted into a #mentalhospital .🤯😞💆🏽‍♀️ But I didn’t fully understand the term “chronic” until it was explained further. 🦋✨💜 Chronic in my situation meant that I have been dealing with the PTSD symptoms for a very long time. 😔So I wanted to learn everything I could about it. 💪🏽🦋I started researching different books to read and one of the first ones I came across was “The Evil Hours” by David J. Morris. It helped me to put everything into perspective and made sense as to what I was going through. 🦋✨💜 So to all my #childabusesurvivor and those battling with #mentalillness , don’t give up. Learn all you can about your diagnosis or whatever you are dealing with or experiencing. . . . . . #theevilhours #davidjmorris #mentalillnesssucks #overcomingstruggles #blessedandliberated #mentalillnessawareness #mentalhealthadvocate #breakthestigma #mentalhealthawareness #itsokaytonotbeokay #liberated #selfexpression #blogger #womenbloggers #blackwomenbloggers #strongerthanthestruggle #winningeveryday #suicideprevention #overcomingdepression #overcominganxiety #overcomingsuicidalthoughts #overcomingptsd
💙The following words are reposted from @mjthreeandco 💙 • • • • • I always talk about the importance of mental health. I’ve had anxiety as far back as I can remember but depression is a new beast. I thought I could wait it out. I thought I could outthink it. I thought I could get through it without help. I can’t. I’ve finally realized myself that it’s okay to not be okay. I’m not weak, I’m not crazy, but I’m not “normal” and it may take something like medication to pull me out of this hole I’ve been digging myself. Today marks my lowest day (the weather certainly doesn’t help) but it also marks the day I decided to seek treatment in the form of medication. Just needed to get that off my chest. Ain’t no shame in my depression game✌🏻. 📷: @jbails89 #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #anxiety #depression #mentalwellness #itsokaytonotbeokay

As someone who suffers with my own Mental Health hearing that someone I was at uni with has taken his own life has shook me. The person in question was the life and soul of the party, a massive character on campus for the 3 years and more importantly a BLOODY BRILLIANT guy. I am not privy to what has gone on in the time since we left MMUC but it shows the fragility of life and the demons we can have to battle with. Anyone struggling please talk - IT IS OKAY TO NOT BE OKAY. I may not have the answers (I wish I bloody did) but always willing to listen #mentalhealth #itsokaytonotbeokay #itsgoodtotalk #takentoosoon #suicideawareness
My latest passion project @mypastpresentfuture was deeply inspired by my own experiences struggling with complex PTSD, depression, suicide, and severe anxiety. One of the hardest parts of my journey to heal was people pushing me away and judging me because of the stigmas around mental health. More people than you realize are struggling and they just need love and maybe a hug. You can label us “crazy” because you are afraid to understand, but keep in mind only 3-5% of people with serious mental illness harm others. Educate yourself about mental health just like you would your physical health. It’s time to make talking about these things normal. - We donate 10% of every @mypastpresentfuture to @twloha , a charity helping those struggling with depression, addiction, self-harm, and suicide. - Pictured: Enjoy The Ride t-shirt.

21st September 2018// This week I decided to take a break from the bake off technical bakes mainly due to my MH has been in the pits...Instead of pushing myself too much and beating myself up for not feeling able to bake, I've been trying to take some time to reconnect with gentle activities that I used to enjoy. My crochet hooks are still hard to pick up and my concentration for anything has been, well, near non existent for the past few months but I have finally (as of this morning) finished my most recent reread of the HP series. These books have come back to me in times of utter despair and hopelessness and have given me a spark of hope when the last thing I felt like doing was finding one. I have adored Harry potter since their first release and remember queuing up, all dressed up, at our local Waterstones shop on release days to get my hands on one of the new books (of which we would buy two, one for Andi who would speed through it in less than a day, while I would take the other and bumble through it in weeks. Despite having very different reading scopes, the magic was never less for either of us.) 🧙‍♂️🌟 This time around I started The Philosophers Stone whilst cooped up in a dreary London EDU hospital near the beginning of the year, and although I may be finishing the series not in the best of shapes, I am at least able to finish it in my own bed, cuddled up with my favourite bedding having just slept in instead of being rudely awoken at God knows what hour for medical checks and medication. There may not feel like many rays of hope right now but nevertheless I refuse to give up. Life may not always take us to the places we thought we would be in by certain times, but there is no rush. This is not about sprinting the finish line or ticking off a list. Right now my story may be feel like it is on pause and like I am losing myself more and more with each passing day but I never ever give up hope. It may be a tiny speck in the distance at the moment but I refuse to give up; I have not come this far to only come this far. My magic will not be snuffed out.🌟
You got this 💜🌈💪🏼✨

Today as I walked out of the final appointment for the day, I asked how much more of this can I take? Surely a break is coming my way, a break from my body falling apart. Not only is my body falling apart physically but mentally it's starting to as well, as I start to lose hope with every appointment that goes by. I truly have never felt so overwhelmed with the feeling of giving up, of just wanting everything to be over. But then I asked myself if that was what I really wanted? Giving up is the easy option. And so as I walked out of that appointment, I remembered all that I have to be grateful for and the fight that I will continue to fight, all the mini battles that keep appearing to overcome. True strength is found in these moments, when all you want to do is give up on it all, but instead you continue to push through to see another day #thoughtoftheday #pushingthrough #givingup #healthstruggles #itsokaytonotbeokay #onedayatatime
Sharing this because it was one of the most retweeted messages from #midwiferyforum yesterday in Cardiff after my friend @mark_williams_fmh talk and it’s because the message here is so important. I was one of those who didn’t say anything...because I didn’t want to worry Mair....and there are so many other guys out there taking the same approach. We’ve got to get men talking. At the extreme end it could save someone’s life 😔 #howareyoudad #fathersmentalhealth #mensmentalhealth #itsokaytonotbeokay

The two pictures above were taken on the same day. The left picture was taken in the morning when I was in bed, overwhelmed and struggling to deal with my own thoughts. The picture on the right was taken later that night just before I went to go out to dinner with some friends; still overwhelmed and struggling to deal with my own thoughts. For me the two feelings (along with many others) written on both sides of the picture are constant due to my mental health conditions. Mental illnesses do not have an identifiable “look” nor do they discriminate, hence why they are often referred to as the invisible or silent killer. From the pictures above I wanted to show that what you may see on the outside is not necessarily a true indication of how people feel internally. It’s incredibly easy to put up a facade around others. Therefore, I really want to emphasise the importance of communicating with your family and friends on a regular basis. Check in on them, ask how they are feeling and if they aren’t feeling okay - listen, offer support and encourage them to seek help. Remember - it’s okay to not be okay, it’s not weak to speak and communication is key 💙 - #youmatter #mentalhealthawareness #nolook #mentalhealthadvocate #nomoresilentsuffering #mentalhealthdoesntdiscriminate #itsokaytonotbeokay #itsnotweaktospeak #communicationiskey #mentalhealthmatters #endthestigma #theroadtorecovery #survival
I suffered with panic disorder, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder for YEARS. I refused medication because I was raised in a environment where people either hated medications or abused their medication. There was no in between. Therefore, for the fear of becoming a drug addict or disappointing people, I suffered. Many nights I found myself in the bathroom floor, ready to just end it all. I barely left the house for nearly a year. I self-harmed. I attempted suicide. I didn't want to die, I just didn't want to feel that way anymore. THANKFULLY. In December, I began taking medication for my Panic Disorder and depression. It was the best decision I ever made. My wounds have become faint scars, my Panic attacks are few and far between, I am genuinely happy. Even if I'm stressed, I realize the value of my life. Had it not been for medication, I'm not sure that I would be here. #endthestigma #panicdisorder #anxiety #depression #itsokaytonotbeokay
1 in 5 people will experience a mental health condition in their life. I am 1 in 5 🙋🏼‍♀️ Anxiety. Depression. I’ve experienced both. You would never know just by looking at me. They will always be a part of who I am but I won’t allow them to control my life. I will speak up, reach out, and seek help when I need it. I no longer stay quiet and try to ignore this part of me. I’ve come to understand that it’s okay to not be okay sometimes. I’m ready for there to be no more stigma around mental health. I want people to be able to open up and share their journey. It’s so much easier to pull through a mental health battle when you have people around you that support you, that try to understand you, that know that it’s not you but the illness that’s causing your symptoms. Check in on your loved ones. Just because someone looks okay from the outside doesn’t mean they are okay on the inside. The more we talk about mental health conditions, the more people will be willing to open up about being 1 in 5 and seek the help they need. #sharingmyjourney #1in5 #itsokaynottobeokay #speakup #reachout #seekhelp #endthestigma #wearyourlabel #mentalhealthjourney #anxietyhelp #depressionrecovery #bethechange #helpingothers #bekindalways #selfcarematters #personaldevelopment #inspireothers #itsokaytonotbeokay #mamaspeaceofmind
Life is stressful. So many things are going on right now and it’s a little more than you can bear. It’s okay. It’s okay to not be okay. No one can be ‘fine’ all the time. Give yourself some time to let everything out. If you don’t feel safe to vent to someone, just know you can dm me if need be. I swear you are safe and it’s all going to be okay. You may feel like you have to be strong for everyone else, but remember that you do matter and sometimes things are just too hard. It’s okay. 🍂 #lifequotes #itsokaytonotbeokay
Life is Strange: Before The Storm Amazing story of Chloe Price 🙏🙌💪 I started playing this game when it came out but played the chapter throughout the year to today. Just feel you can really take a lot from playing this game.. while playing this I just totally connected with Chloe so much, it was nice to feel that. to feel the same way Chloe has in certain situations in the game.. you definitely feel the weight and gravity of the choices you can make. And some aren’t easy.. Also what I love about this game is it just gives us more insight to Life itself. Like there’s a deeper person in everyone and we all have our own story. And life is really is strange when you think about it... The people we call family and friends.. those we say hi too but don’t really know them... the excitement and adventure we chase after.. just seems Life is about experiencing all you can... because things never happen the same way twice. 🙏🌃🛤🌪🔥🌎🌄🌤 #lifeisstrange #beforethestorm #chloeprice #lifeisstrangebeforethestorm #gaming #nerd #xboxonex #gaymer #instagay #bestgameever #itsokaytonotbeokay #maxcaulfield #rachelamber #soon #lifeisstrange2
Sometimes I feel worthless. Sometimes I feel that I’m not enough. Sometimes I just feel sad. Life gets crazy and you don’t feel like moving forward. Times get tough. On the outside you’re smiling, but on the inside you’re hurting. I know what it’s like to feel like everything is against you. I may not always have the perfect words to say, but I am a great set of ears. If you ever feel down please know that you can come to me. I want to be the safe place that everyone needs. Love one another. Never take a day for granted. #itsokaytonotbeokay
• I told myself I would publish 1 post before turning 28 so I went with a brief welcome to my blog- goals aren’t always perfectly achieved, but gosh darn it did I make sure I still achieved what I said I would! Look out for a post tomorrow about turning another year older! •
You are allowed to say no. Many of us have a tendency to feel overwhelming guilt when we say no. At the end of the day, it is impossible to please everyone, and putting the need to please everyone else around us at the forefront can cause burnout. If you don’t have the time, if it is a sacrifice of your own mental health, you are allowed to say no.

Honoured to be an ambassador for @soldiers.utd. An organisation that’s striving to reduce the stigma around Mental Health Illness. || Mental Health illness is a cause close to my heart as I have struggled with depression and anxiety at various times in my life. My final semester of uni was probably one of the toughest times in my life, and a time in which I considered taking my own life. Without the support of family, friends and seeking help through a psychologist, I probably wouldn’t be here today. || I’m proof that talking about things and seeking help when you need it is a step in the right direction. You’re never alone in this battle. || So lets get the conversation going, let’s be soldiers in this tough world, and let’s be soldiers that battle this together 💙 #letsbattlethistogether
Look, it will most likely be a glass of wine and I’ll probably be dancing naked, so is my neighbors aren’t watching me that would be ideal.

Jag har gått den igen. Min underbara promenadväg längs stranden. Inte lång men oj vad mycket energi och styrka den ger mig. För jag är sjukskriven. Utmattad. Ingen idé att tänka på hur olägligt den kom. Bara konstatera att den är här för att hälsa på och bo över ett tag 🛌. Utmattningen alltså🛁. Jag kan väl inte direkt påstå att den är en fiende men inte världens roligaste sällskap 🧙🏻‍♀️. Har haft betydligt roligare. Jag dukar upp med fika ☕️, bjuder på mackor. Nån mat blir det inte. Hoppas på att min gäst ska gå och köpa en tårtbit men det har inte hänt än 🍰En bit prinsesstårta vore gott. Sen är det bara att krypa ner under mysfilten och göra det bästa av situationen. Utmattningen får klara sig bäst den vill. Jag tänker inte anstränga mig för att pyssla om den. Då kanske den stannar länge och det vill jag inte. Nej max två veckor till. Men av erfarenhet vet jag att de är ett rättså sällskapssjukt släkte 🤼‍♀️. Vi får se. Hopefully back in business soon! 🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️🧚🏼‍♂️ SYNTOLKNING: Mälarens strand med träd och stenar.
