I'm so happy I read this, because my constant fatigue and overall tiredness is so frustrating. It's also really hard to always have to try and come up with a reason for my exhaustion. This is part of the why. I know it's mental exhaustion and I don't have to fear something is wrong with my body! Many people would accept my tiredness if the reason was somatic. Why can't they accept a mental reason? it's just as valid. 😴 I hope your week will bring nice things in your life 💗 ~J~ #cptsdrecovery #cptsdawareness #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #complexposttraumaticstressdisorder #posttraumaticstressdisorder #trauma #traumarecovery
(Part 2 of 2, Part 1 can be found on my Facebook Page). Here is a little glimpse into my last 48 hours of my personal and most recent battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). These are the feelings and effects most people don’t see. I use the analogy “Like A Duck” most people see the duck that cuts across the water in a smooth motion. What they don’t see is that the ducks legs are kicking like hell underneath. This is another horrible time for me, I am scared and like many others, the injuries are not visible but the are so real. They are in our subconscious mind, that replays these reels not only in our sleep but when we are awake. Unable to escape or shut the movies off. However, we can’t give up, no matter how much we want to, we can “ Never Give Up.” #NeverGiveUp #PTSDSurvivor #ptsd #ptsdawareness #PTSDStong #ptsdrecovery #VeteranStrong #FirstReponders #rcmp #CorrectionsOfficers #Live #operationalstressinjury #veterans #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness @ptsd.awareness @fishing_for_ptsd @mentalhealthawareness.insta @mental.health.hope @vsa_usa @veteranswithptsd

New year, new life. I'm here for you. The enteric nervous system are the connections which happen within your gut. Have you ever felt uncomfortable in your gut??? My healthy belly massage helps your enteric nervous system along into detox or normalcy. It depends on you. This work helps tremendously with anxiety and trauma. Don't worry. I know trauma intimately. We can gain connection again. There's no judgement. 🧡🧡🧡 #brendabodywork #richardsontx #dallascowboys #dallastx #digestion #digestivehealth #digestivesystem #anxiety #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #matbasedmassage #thaimassage #thaiyogamassage
I found these in Bealls today, and it made me angry and disappointed. I can’t stand diet culture. These plates are a perfect example. What kind of messages are we teaching the world when we glorify restriction and control? Anyway on a different note, I’m super stressed and anxious about this week. School/exams, advising appointment, and memorizing a bach suite. I can barely keep my eyes open, so I’m going to bed. I just felt like I needed to upload something I missed yesterday😅
These past couple weeks have left me feeling nothing but anxious, lonely, extremely depressed and uncontrollably dissociated. I just keep feeling like I am out of control and I can’t do anything about it. It is true that I can’t control my mental state, but I can control how I cope with it. Yesterday all I felt was nothingness...I felt like I wasn’t even there, like I wasn’t real and nothing that was happening was real. The whole day I felt dissociated. Then today, I felt a bit better...I bonded with my mom while we decorated cookies and I had a nice time out for pizza with my family. Now it’s past midnight and my anxiety is coming in full circle, making sure it’s the number 1 thing on my mind. It’s in the drivers seat. I didn’t know what to do to turn it off other than to make a fancy picture with a quote that stabs anxiety in the back. It felt relaxing to make this picture aesthetically pleasing as well as empowering. Because anxiety DOES NOT control you. It may feel like it at most times, but you have the power to say NO to your anxiety and tell it to get the heck out, who hired you to work here in my brain?? Sure wasn’t me! 😂 . #anxiety #anxietyquotes #recovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthjourney #anxietyjourney #ptsdrecovery #ptsd #freedomfromed #edrecovery #selfharmrecovery #bulimiarecovery #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery

Dear ***, It's been 4 years and 3 days since the day I left you. I hope you're suffering the consequences. I hope you cringe at the thought of my name. There are people who are comforted knowing you're permanently held on a leash by the federal government. I know I sleep better with that in mind. I hope you realize what a sick piece of crap you are for exploiting vulnerable teenage girls. I hope you regret me for the rest of your life. I don't think about you often anymore. I can walk into that store you liked. I can even say your name out loud. If I had to face you again, I wouldn't cry this time. I wouldn't shake. if I could stand infront of you one more time, you'd feel small. I am a goddamn mountain and you will never knock me down. You taught me a valuable lesson in stripping me of my sense of self and sense of safety. In destroying me, you gave me the change to build myself from the ground up. And for that, I will thank you. You gave me the opportunity to be strong. I was strong enough for all of us. For *****, for *******, for ******, and for me. I hope you rot. In 3 years, every cell in my body will have replaced itself. In 3 years, I will have a body you never touched. . . . . . . . . #PTSD #ptsdrecovery #abusesurvivor #mentalhealthblogger #survivor #strongenough #whatdoesntkillyoumakesyoustronger
Blurry, happy pictures 🌈 Wanted to share some of the lyrics to a song I've written. I think some of us could benefit from them. 🎶 "Stained and scarred, I'm not a perfect canvas. I may be torn, but dont ever call me damaged. I am weather worn, but I survived the storm. I took my time and that's enough. I am not broken, I'm enough - Carve my body. Make me something perfect. But don't change a thing, because I already earned it. I am not a doll, I'm not likeable. I am not an icon, your idol, your ghost. I am water carving into stone, slowly changing. Always changing. - You couldn't break me if you tried. They couldn't break me, oh they tried. They tried to burn me, so I burned. They tried to kill me, so I learned." 🎶 #recovery #ptsdrecovery #ptsd #mentalillness #mentalhealthblogger #eatingdisorderrecovery #anorexiarecovery #selflove

in·ten·tion /inˈten(t)SH(ə)n/ noun 1. a thing intended; an aim or plan. • res·o·lu·tion /ˌrezəˈlo͞oSH(ə)n/ noun 1. a firm decision to do or not to do something • This year I will set intentions, not resolutions. I tend to think resolutions get broken within that first month or people never stick with it. A resolution is an absolute all or nothing in my eyes. We can do this.

I still have this insane dream to get here. Although right now it seems almost impossible to get here, I know with a lot of hard work and focus this dream will come true. For everyone, even if the dreams seems so far away, it’s actually closer than you think. Keep fighting. ❤️ #keep your focus #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery
Today has been hell emitionally. I've been up and down all day. I just want to be better. I'm tired of feeling like this but the one person that made sure I was doing what i needed to in order to stay on a good path left my life for a while. I'm so lost without her and the boys. I hate feeling like I do. I felt normal with her in my life again. But she needed time to herself because she struggles with BPD as well. But I feel like I did something even though she told me it's not my fault. Idk what to do anymore. I've been trying to find other ways to cope with my shit but it's not working. . . . . #bpd #borderlinepersonality #mentalhealth #mentalillness #DBT #livingwithbpd #borderline #breakthestigma #mental #depression #anxitey #bpdrecovery #bpdawareness #bpdhelp #bpdadvice #mentalhelthproblems #suicide #suicidal #suicideawareness #awareness #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #selflove #selfcare #selfconfidence #bipolardepression #bipolardisorder #bipolar
Had an awesome beach ride with the kiddo today 🏖 🛹 🛴 had such a blast! 😁 Also, tried out our new #gimble which made the video a bit smoother for the first time 😝 how’d I do? Hehe! Much love to you all and let’s have a blessed week! 🙏
Fun fact: Healing is hard. Family is harder. Especially when Christmas is quickly approaching. Cupcakes help.
It is common for people to experience emotional challenges after trauma. You are not alone please seek help. #ptsd #depression #mentalhealth #psychotherapist #copingwithanxiety #copingskills #ptsdmemes #ptsdrecovery #ptsdsucks #trauma #student #therapy #therapist #youarenotalone #survival

008 • Vulnerability (4/4)⁣ I’ve had a myriad of grown-ass Homo sapiens mock/shame/judge me for my “inferior” philosophy on sexual intercourse. And, as I reflect on my playful and passionate one-night (no-sex) stand with Romeo, I am reminded of the immense Soul-binding value that physical and emotional vulnerability can bring into a sexual partnership. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ My brief rendezvous with this beautiful being reaffirmed why I’m still willing to be deeply humiliated and painfully rejected by men who are too weak to engage in a non-sexual, Soul-connecting and spiritually orgasmic relationship.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ No one here needs to remind me of the delusional decision (albeit, well-studied and well-thought out) I made in my late teens to do my best (coz this shit’s not easy) to refrain from all forms of sex until I meet the idiot who wants to be united with me in the prison of marriage. ⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Make no mistake folks, as a highly sensual human being, I’m extremely aware that the chances of my meeting a theologically-rooted and partnership-oriented man are slim to none, especially considering my age – and most especially considering the free-sex philosophy that has existed since time immemorial.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Regardless, at the end of the day, the hope – and again, it is an awfully thin ray of hope – that I might engage in (a minimum of) three decades worth of sacred sex (quickies included) from my late thirties onward with a man who fears G-d, cherishes the feminine divine, understands what it is to suffer, craves authentic love, possesses a ‘till-insanity-or-death-do-us-part mentality, and knows how to patiently deal with my salty self – well, that dream (hallucination) keeps me going.⁣ ⁣ ⁣ Because if there’s one recurring lesson I’ve learned in the 10 years of informal interviews I’ve hosted with sexually active peers (namely, women), it’s this: cheap sex costs a lot more than you think.⁣ _________⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Lensed by Marina Ray.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
007 • Vulnerability (3/4)⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Earlier this year, I got emotionally involved with two fuckboys (no sex involved), and I (eventually) took full responsibility for the mental hell I placed myself in. ⁣⁣⁣So, when Romeo started flirting with me throughout the night and made it clear he wanted to kiss me, I was down.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Aside from the fact that I was attracted to him/his personality, I superficially reasoned this was my one chance to redeem myself with a super sweet hottie before 2018 comes to a pathetic close. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣ I made it clear to Romeo that if we made-out, we would strictly be engaging in a one-time, tongue wrestling session (with perks). ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ When I casually noted my semi-virgin status, his face lit up. (FYI/TMI, I’ve been the recipient of oral sex three times in 38 years - I’m claiming this sexual activity as a social experiment - and, I’ve had zero penile-vaginal/anal intercourse.) Romeo offered a genuine “Cool!” and threw an attractive boyish grin my way, paired with a penetrating gaze that carved a tiny dent in my Soul. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ Sidenote: Romeo is one of only TWO men in my lifetime who opted not to verbally degrade me (or ghost me) upon learning of my sex stance, and, I’m not shocked because he and his brethren were well-trained to treat women with the utmost of respect.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣ Long story short (it’s too late for that, I know), I had the best night/morning of my life this year. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣And, this means that statistically speaking, my next make-out sesh is officially several years away. I’m not kidding. Hopefully, it’s with my imaginary husband.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ _________⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Lensed by Dionysius Burton.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣
We created together today. Gage drew this cartoon and Lydia colored it. . Flashbacks started early this morning, we think this is from one of the times Jordan split. It got very intense - very fast and Gage took over to protect us all. . Lydia was feeling some type of way since she was planning to talk to Julia - she did it though and it was productive! . Julia agreed to take care of Makayla AND learn the ways of Non-violent communication to help them rebuild their relationship. We had a late meeting to discuss what happened, and MaKayla showed up to it. Unplanned. . It worked out well though, as we were all able to express concern and show that we care. She was overwhelmed with emotion and is so pleased we are not planning on throwing her out and not needing her. . Turns out all she needed was to know we cared and to hear that we WANTED to help her. . . #traumasurvivor #healingjourney #traumahealing #arttherapy #cartoonart #ptsdrecovery #childabusesurvivor #dissociativeidentitydisorder #multiplicity #multiplepersonalities #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthwarrior #dissociativeidentitymovement #bpd #did #osdd #cptsd #anxiety #depression #endthestigma #actuallydissociative
