you have the responsibility to create a healthy life for yourself ~ I practiced visualisation last night. I’m not someone it comes super easily to, so I started of small - having a good day at the first day of my new job tomorrow. I struggle to not feel sad when I’m visualising, because my mind tends to wander into feeling like this is what I’ve never had, so how will I ever be able to get it. This is not a helpful, or truthful narrative however. Letting go of these feelings of inadequacy and letting in these feelings of what you want is the radical shift in perspective that allows visualisations to start manifesting. So that’s what I’m manifesting - a shift from fear, into love. . #manifestation #visualisation #dreamlife #lawofattraction #LOA #mentalhealth #ptsdhealing #ptsdrecovery #selflove #selfgrowth #selfgrowthjourney #yogaeverydamnday #spiritualenlightenment #ukphotographer #oldchurch #phototherapy #ukphotography #beginnerphotographer

These #noisecancelling #bluetoothheadphones are the best xmas gift i have ever gotten! My husband got them to help me control the noises that trigger my #ptsd . i (try to) bring them everywhere and last night on the #lrttrain they would have come in handy, but i am blessed with an amazing man who #knowsthesigns and was able to help me #overcome my #ptsdattack through constant touch and even covered my ears in replacement of my headphones. Without him I would not be as strong as I am today his support and love are my #powerhouse to comply with my #disorders . Even tho i had the attacks it was the greatest Valentine’s Day ever knowing i have had him in my life through all that has happened #decadetogether #lovegoals #crushingit #keepfighting #anxietyhelp #anxietydisorder #anxietyrecovery #anxietysucks #anxietyawareness #anxietyproblems #anxietyfighter #bodypositive #bodypositivity #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #copingwithptsd #depression #depressionawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery
Grabbing my lettuce wraps and fries to fuel through the night for #OrangeCurtain 12hr race... this will be my first night race miles of 2019! Night running is one of my greatest weaknesses, so this race is all about training my body and brain to keep moving through the night. It’s chilly for SoCal with temperatures in the 40’s and a light rain falling. I have a mild fever, just under 100 deg F. I’ve had stomach issues all week, and I’m tired and my body wants to sleep - so it’s IDEAL for #100MileTraining all around! I’ll post a few updates if time allows. I hope everyone is having a great, safe night and gets lots to sleep for their weekend miles! 😘
((depressed venting)) Sometimes it's just not enough. I don't think I could ever be enough. I'm tired, sick, and just not enough. I want to push everything far away from me. All of it; get it out of me. Facing these things, I cry but I have to continue to move on. This cannot haunt me forever. - - #depression #vent #restless #bulimiarecovery #edrecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalillness #latenight #tired #worthsomething #schizophrenia #emotional #emotions #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #getoutofmyhead #psychosis #trauma #photoedits #trees
This fine canine has been with me through thick and thin. She is my furry companion who has reminded me of some important life skills when PTSD made me forget. . 💟Let $hit go. 💟Live in the moment. 💟Trust your gut. 💟Nature heals. 💟Daily exercise for calm energy. 💟Get excited about the small stuff. 💟Food, drink, naps and love are enough. Happy Friday and have a great weekend! #dogslife #doglove #ptsdrecovery #ptsd #ptsdawareness #mentalhealthawareness #caninetherapy #dogtherapy #caninefriends
YES! Embrace your strength and honor that even in the midst of everything you are going through.... You manage to keep on keeping on. Celebrate that. Honor your strength. Be kind to yourself This week has been fraught with a lot of anxiety for me. Getting through it moment by moment. Needed some light. This quote made me laugh and it was an empowering reminder 💖 Stepping towards the light, even if it’s only an inch at a time, Helps us to find our path to #shineagain 🌟

I wonder what descriptive words my therapist jotted down, after she observed my art. She asked me to give her an example of vulnerability. #therapy #arttherapy #badasstherapist #minneapolis #ptsdrecovery #sculpture

#latergram Posting this older selfie because today was a whirlwind. I was knocked off my high place and spent the afternoon crying on and off. I’ve felt isolated and incredibly discouraged for the first time in a long time. This is to remind me that I slay.

Anyone have any tips for distractions post panic? I’ve been on edge all day bc of earliers out of the blue attack. Right now I just have camomile tea, piles of blankets and plushies, and cartoons. I hate running to Klonopin. I know video games are good distractions but the disassociated feelings make it hard to concentrate. I keep feeling weird outside, and I don’t want those feelings back. I planned to stream but I can’t keep conversation, I keep stumbling over my words today and zoning out. Do any of you ever struggle with that when it comes to streaming? Like anxiety? I hope you’re all having a wonderful Friday. 🖤🖤🖤 - - - - - - Tags for focused audience. #panicattack #panicdisorder #agoraphobia #ptsdrecovery #ptsd #twitch #twitchstreamer #twitchkittens #twitchkittenscommunity #gamergirls #blonde #tattooedgirls #pokemontattoo #pokemon #zelda #loz #bo4 #supportsmallstreamers #twitchstreaming #apexlegends #supermario #switch #sylveon #klonopin #valium #twitchgirls #girlsoftwitch

"DBT Skills for Healthy Distractions Distress Tolerance Skill; A.C.C.E.P.T.S some of these you probably already do. good. now all you have to do is conscientiously choose them when you feel bad. ☆ (DISCLAIMER: this skill won’t magically cure your bad mood. think of ACCEPTS as a lifeboat of options for when you’re freaking the fuck out.) ➡️ A - activities deliberately distract yourself with an activity. redirect your thought back to this one action when you feel yourself seething or ruminating.  ex. * jog. * play with your pets. * do the dishes. * de-clutter your room. * draw * read a book C - contribute whatever it is, focus your attention on something outside of yourself in a positive way. reason: it removes you from the self-destructive behavior you’re used to.  ex. * make a gift for someone * write a nice letter to a friend * run an errand with your family * donate, reblog donation posts on tumblr C - compare Compare yourself with people in similar situations or worse. * watch a vlog about someone dealing with a similar issue. * watch a bleak documentary about natural disasters * read a book about someone getting out of a bad situation and compare it to your life. * if all else fails, opt for schadenfreude. cringe vids and reality tv work fine.  E - opposite emotion act on the exact opposite emotion.  ex. you’re sad. watch some stand up or listen to bad parody songs. you’re too manic. listen to calming music and sing to it.  you’re anxious. play a video game that you’re good at. *confidence boost* P - pushing away if you start to feel powerless, visualize yourself growing and that problem shrinking. turn the problem into an object in your head. imagine putting the problem in a box. place it inside a closet. you’ll get back to it later. T - thoughts stimulate your mind. watch a documentary on something fascinating, but not emotionally charged. read. learn something new. exercise your ability to think logically/reasonably again. S - sensations allow yourself to experience something nice this time.  lie down on clean sheets, pet a dog, cuddle. take a bath. exfoliate, smell your fav. scent. [obvi do not include what could lead to relapse]. (continued below!)
I look back and realise how much of an achievement this was. At the time I didn’t realise just how much work I put into that, and how fit I actually was. This entire last year has been about recovering and coping with ptsd. But I really do miss being that functionally healthy, although I’m not too far off... I’m looking forward to this year 💕 #earthangels #connecttoearth #rapetraumarecovery #ptsdrecovery #healthymind #healthyyear #girlswhoweighttrain #yogababes #girlswithabs #fitnessmotivation #fitnessgirl #healthymindbodysoul #healyourbody #l4l #timetosmashgoals

Depression and anxiety have kicked my ass this past year. The depression can make getting out of bed seem impossible and pursuing things that bring me joy too exhausting to contemplate. • The anxiety has seen my eyes fly open at 3am, gasping for breath and, when it's really bad, vomiting and knocking on a loved one's door in utter distress just before sunrise. • I share this because a) I have zero shame about it and b) because when others share their truths on social media I feel such a sense of relief and connection - not because they're suffering, but because it means I'm not alone in mine. Mental illness tries so hard to convince you otherwise. First there's the mental distress itself. Then come the feelings of shame and self-flagellation - the "why can't I be normal" thoughts that make the original torment so much harder to bear. • Even though the thoughts you're having are real, they're probably not true but the isolation you're likely existing in means you have no one to provide perspective. You have the craziest, most revolting thoughts about yourself and your worth and you believe every single one. • My struggles come from PTSD and while there are different causes for mental illness, so many of the symptoms are similar if not the same. • When I took this selfie yesterday I was struck by how sad I look and it led me to revisit this half-assed plan I've had to start a photography project called 'Everyone is a Little Fucked Up'. But I've been too depressed to start! The idea behind it is if we were all a little more honest about our struggles it would not only ease our own burden, but those of others who are convinced that everybody else has it together. It wouldn't aim to answer any questions or solve anything, rather it would serve to reassure those that are struggling that they're not alone, they're not weird, they're not lame because they're struggling to cope. They're human and that thing they think is so ugly and shameful, is instead what makes them beautiful. • Sending so much love and understanding to those who are struggling today and everyday. You are not alone, dude. xx

{SWIPE FOR THE FULL POEM} This is a poem that I started writing while I was with my abuser and every time I look at it, I am reminded of how thankful I am to be free.
Anxiety is not a new thing to me, but I had a panic attack at treatment today, on a level that I hadn’t had in a few weeks. . The trigger? Puppy chow. . “Alyssa, what about the puppy chow is causing anxiety?” . Absolutely nothing. It had nothing to do with the actual snack (becasue who doesn’t LOVE puppy chow?), and I honestly had no idea why I was so upset. I literally started laughing while crying because I felt so ridiculous for being as upset as I was without a known reason. . Something as small as puppy chow triggered an internal meltdown that, in my self-criticizing opinion, shouldn’t be expected three days before I am scheduled to discharge. . But it did, and I worked through it on my own with minimal support from my team (big milestone) and I enjoyed the damned triggering puppy chow when all was said and done. . And this is recovery. Living life as we know it and navigating over those speed bumps as we go, knowing that moments like today might happen and being able to work through such a trigger, solo and like a boss, is what we fight so hard for. . . . . #recoveryisntlinear #baddayshappen #riseabove #likeaboss #recoverywin #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #eatingdisorderawareness #eatingdisordertreatment #ptsd #ptsdawareness #ptsdrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #breakthestigma #breakthesilence #speakup #shareyourstory #shareyourhope

Day 57, 10 days off Xanax- I’d love to say I’m feeling great but...I don’t. I was really hoping to be getting back to living by now but it is what it is. My head is still killing me and my joints are wrecked. My jaw is really tight and my stomach is not the best. The big difference is all the normal Xanax issues are gone. This is all new detox crap. How long will it last? When can I start my life over? I gotta get back to work soon! Fingers crossed I don’t lose my mind soon lol.

Many people first incorporate CBD into their lives once facing health problems, but CBD offers botanical properties that are beneficial for anyone interested in promoting wellness. CBD’s stimulation and support of the endocannabinoid system may help it continue to run efficiently. Hemp-derived CBD oil also supports the maintenance of a complete and healthy diet. When discussing CBD oil facts, it’s impossible to not mention that in addition to CBD and other trace cannabinoids, CBD oil is also a natural source of many vitamins and minerals, including B complex vitamins, vitamin C, vitamin E, calcium, and magnesium. CBD oil also contains protein, fatty acids, and other dietary nutrients critical for keeping your body running at its best. For healthy people, supplementing the endocannabinoid system, the largest self-regulatory system, with plant-based cannabinoids like CBD is a potential way to maintain optimal health. The balancing effects of CBD combined with the nutritional content of hemp oil will help ensure your body is given what it needs for peak performance each day. Have you had you CBD today? @mikeatabb
Party Drug or Breakthrough Treatment? Israel Approves Compassionate Use of MDMA to Treat PTSD⁣ ⁣ "The Health Ministry became aware of the use of MDMA therapy as a result of Israel’s participation in the #ClinicalTrial , [Bella] Ben-Gershon said. 'The ministry is taking this seriously and with appropriate caution, and in-depth investigation has been carried out. There is a considerable population in Israel of people suffering from #PTSD that is resistant to other treatment.'" —Haaretz⁣ ⁣ LINK: http://maps.org/021519 via @HaaretzCom #MDMAPTSD #PTSDRecovery #PsychedelicTherapy #Psychotherapy
Finally it is half term, we are off skiing in France with my parents which I am hoping means quality time all round. And yes I did bring a book with me, and I am really hoping to make progress and not turn to @bleakhouse.london bookclub without finishing it, although 530 pages is long, and I have not read such a long book since probably Harry Potter, and that was way before the kids. I did not take any other books. I need to focus on one book to give myself a chance to finish it, and give myself some headspace to articulate how I will present the books on depression I have been working with. I have posted a couple of articles on my blog discussing PTSD. And I cannot wait to share the interview/video (way out of my comfort zone) with @thepilatespod we recorded on Thursday. . . . Although you cannot see it, the book featured is called One Thousand Beautiful Things. Such an inspiring title.

One of the things that drive me crazy is when people say "mental illnesses are not actually illnesses. They don't actually affect a part of your body." This, in fact, is incorrect😁. Mental illnesses can actually recreate path ways in your brain, sometimes even damaging it. So don't let anyone tell you otherwise. It's very real. #mentalhealthawareness #emotionalhealth #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyrelief #anxietyhelp #depressionhelp #depression #anxiety #OCD #OCDrecovery #ocd #ocdrecovery #PTSD #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #schizophrenia #schizophreniarecovery #bipolardisorder #bipolardisorderrecovery #speakup #spreadtheword #thefacts
Work in progress I’ve seen several photos of the Rats off Tobruk having their photos taken in front of caves, I wanted to show them inside the caves as if they were taking a smoke (as we used to say) in a slightly more relaxed, non posed situation. So that is my approach to this painting of these great men. I am happy with the layout so far, I will add five more heroes making it nine it total and then I will list their names, these are real men, real Rats Of Tobruk. I feel this is an important piece (well at the very least it is to me) But then I go into every piece with that dealing. I hope you are enjoying this journey, I certainly am. This original paint I will be put up for sale on completion to interested parties, with a percentage of funds being donated to the group “descendents Of The Rats Of Tobruk. There will also be 50 A1 signed prints available for those that wish to honour the Rats Of Tobruk. Size of prints A1 Price $300 with $100 going to this great group. Prints signed and numbered by the artist Please share #ptsdwarrior #ptsdservicedog #ptsdsurvivor #ptsdquotes #ptsdrecovery #ptsdservicedog #ptsd #ptsdrecovery #ptsdsurvivor #ptsdawareness #ptsdquotes #ptsdquotes

Happy Cut Friday Diva! It’s also Fun Friday fo sho! I just wrapped up Day 33/42 in my current fitness/nutrition/mindset program and it feels good! . . I’ve really gotten this whole lifestyle thing down! Don’t get it twisted diva... the struggles are still there. The excuses still arise. My life is amazing (when I’m in a self love & gratitude space)😉 but not perfect. . I have struggles with quitting in the middle or almost at the end of things wether it be in life, a fitness program, a workout, reaching a goal... do you struggle with that too? Me too but I’m learning and practicing new ways of thinking, feeling and living to help me conquer obstacles! The best part is I get to pay it forward to my diva soul sisters I coach! . When you wanna give up or stop 🛑... diva, go just a little further, get into your reserve & that will give you an opportunity to see what you are capable of… . . In life and in your journey we are CAN work harder & break our cadence, to push past that desire to quit! . . What would make you happy? What do you want?

Grateful to escape this snow in Seattle to LA for a self-care/ mental health day of sunshine & relaxation thanks to @omedibles I get asked often if I take edibles. Yes, sometimes during the day (since I prefer flower) but always 5-10mg in the evening for anxiety. Due to my ptsd I aggressively grind my teeth, suffer from vivid nightmares and wake up drenched in sweat due to constant hypervigilance. When I don’t take some form of cannabis before bed I have ridiculously strong night terrors. There’s nights I’ve woken my mom hysterically crying & asking her to lay with my daughter so I can take an edible and recenter myself (my self care). My teeth grinding now has caused 5 broken teeth, so even naps without a nightguard or edible is a no go! Cannabis in the form of an edible has done wonders for my body. Something super great about @omedibles is they’re not only delicious (lychee flavor), but they’re equal parts CBD & THC in a low dose. So I still feel like myself when I wake up in the morning. I can actually relax & not wake up from horrific dreams.... I’m at peace, I’m relaxed & wake up happy. Cannabis isn’t for everyone and I always like to remind you all that it’s not just cannabis helping my mental health, it’s 4+ years of therapy, learning life tools & talking to medical professionals through this process. So be safe and help your mental health & body the right way. Valentine’s day represents self-care day for me and it comes by helping others, so let’s help one another. Tell me how you deal with your insomnia, night terrors, racing thoughts etc. and what you do for a good night sleep. 📸 @nishaespy #cannabisadvocate #omedibles #hennabynatasha #selfcare #shareyourstory #edibles #plantsoverpills #microdosing #ptsdrecovery
As a mom and person who has dealt with depression, anxiety and ptsd my whole life I know first hand that every day takes effort and sometimes choosing happiness isn't enough. Depression and anxiety is a chemical imbalance! it's not made up or just in your head. You just can't snap out of it as some people may say. It takes work and sometimes takes medication AND THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH TAKING MEDICATION IF YOU NEED IT.I see a counselor - I have taken medication and the mix of the two has helped me & counseling continues to help me but there is NO QUICK FIX -It is a process & healing takes time and work. Some days are better than others and Some people need to be on medication long term depending on what your dealing with. Don't feel bad about your journey. No one is you. No one knows exactly how you feel. I'm not happy every day no one is- but we can not only survive it we can Thrive through it! Everything about you - everything that you are dealing with or have been through makes YOU who YOU ARE and that in it self is MIRACULOUS. We are all miracles. ✨ I am here to heal and in healing myself I hope to beable to help heal others SO from one person dealing with mental health to another We GOT this✊️
