Post traumatic RECOVERY ✊✨ - Today is an extremely empowering day for me, why? It's the anniversary of my leaving. - I left someone who would constantly abuse me emotionally, financially, sexually, and eventually, physically. - Even though this person would treat the woman they 'loved' this way, I still stayed. Even after they kicked me out and I was homeless, I still stayed. I was blinded by this thought that they would be the person I first met if I could get to them. But that person I first met was just an act, and the person I left was the true being behind the mask. - No matter what happened after I left, today is a momentous day for me. I did it. Recovery is never easy, but I would never turn around and go back ♥️ Today, I'm celebrating me and my freedom, and the unapologetic woman I am today because of it ✊🥳 - Today, I remind myself why I want to help others on their journey through healing and to their Rebirth. I remind myself why I'm a recovery coach in the first place. I was alone and in the dark once before, but that doesn't mean that you have to 🌫 I was once unsure of when healing would come, but you don't have to 🌌 - If you are a survivor as well and no matter how long it's been since you left and started taking you life back, whether it's been: 💜 1 day 2 weeks 4 months 20 years 💜 I'm so proud of you. Celebrate you today, too🥳🎉 - - - #domesticviolencesurvivor #domesticviolence #posttraumaticgrowth #traumasurvivor #overcominganxiety #overcomingdepression #copingskills #coping #traumarecovery #childhoodtrauma #ptsdrecovery #ptsdawareness #narcissisticabuse #gaslighting #traumabonding #healingfromabuse #emtionalabuse #domesticabuse #verbalabuse #abuserecovery #abuse #recoverycoach #abusiverelationship #lovedoesnthurt #abusesurvivor #stopdomesticviolence #stopabuse #recoverywin #recoveryispossible #recoveryjourney
Lieve floore van de zorgboerderij ❤️ . EVEN KORTE UPDATE HIERZO . nog steeds opgenomen... . Vandaag redelijk goede dag gehad in ieder geval zelf mijn medicatie in kunnen nemen en geen separeer en dwang medicatie gehad vandaag!!! Gelukkig maar!! Was vandaag goed in contact en heb de hulp geaccepteerd!💪 Vandaag was mijn vriend er en dat was fijn ❤️ ook heb ik nog even piano gespeeld alleen de terug weg naar de kliniek was lastig alle deuren zaten wel op slot maar wilde heel graag naar buiten uiteindelijk heeft de begeleiding die bij mij was gebeld voor meer begeleiding en die hebben mij vastgepakt en meegenomen naar de afdeling.... T lukte me niet zelf... Die middag ook een paar uurtjes 1op1 gehad mocht niet naar mijn kamer maar nu gaat t weer wat beterder en ja... Stemmen zijn er wel nog ondanks dat ik vandaag echt heel veel medicatie heb gehad geven ze mij toch nog de opdracht: wakker blijven en stoppen met eten .... Maar ik blijf sterker dan dat en ga mijn best doen toch te slapen en te blijven eten!!💪 . . #anorexianervosa #ana #anorexia #recovery #recoveryispossible #recoveryisworthit #eatingdisorder #minniemaudrecovert #eetstoornis #beatana #eatingdisorderrecovery #foodrecovery #goforrecovery #recoverywin #beated #edfighter #edfamily #prorecovery #edfam #edwarrior #warrior #anorexiawarrior #anawarrior #foodisgood #anafighter #recoverywin #staystrong #fuckana #depressief #depressie
Evening everyone 🌃 my OOTD 💕 feeling very summery today ☀ actually loving this weather! And looking forward to summer! Anyway dinner was quorn Jambalaya 🌶 to burn Ana's head right off 😉 followed by a smooth toffee yoghurt 😍 and 2 Cadbury éclairs 🤤 and supper is rice krispies multi grain shapes 🥣 with milk 🥛 and a green tea 🍵 time for some evening positivity ✨ I know a lot of you wonder is there such a thing as full recovery?

I was at college, going to parties, working, having whatever I wanted when I wanted! Back dancing, and just truly happy! I know it is possible!!! The first time it took me a good 3 years to reach that stage but I got there and I will again and YOU WILL TOO! 💪 you just got to keep going and push yourself! Because it might take a few years but you are doing it to gain the rest of your LIFE!!! ✨ I hope you all have a fab evening and sleep well 💕 #goingtoeatwhatiwantto #recoveryispossible #recovery #prorecovery #recoveryistheonlyoption #countblessingsnotcalories #curvesnotcalories #curvesnotbones #healthynothungry #determined #anorexic #eatingdisorderrecovery #edfighter #edsoldier #fighter #nevergiveup #nomoreanorexia #nourishnotpunish #strongnotskinny #charversesana #edcommunity #eatclean #cleaneating #edfamily #realrecovery #f4f #recoverywin #eatittobeatit #fuckana #gainingweightiscool

Talk about #jobsatisfaction , today while representing Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center at Alliance for Eating Disorders Awareness “Not One More” Walk, two brave young women approached our booth to let me know that TK saved their lives! Wow! I told them thank you for sharing and being vulnerable. That’s why I do this job, I don’t always get to see the results, but I know there are many stories like theirs. Today was a bonus to get to hear first hand! Both are active members of our #alumna group and gave me consent to share their picture and story! #recoveryispossible
Movie Night! 🍕🍿🎞See you guys tonight at 7pm in GC 355 for a screening of Beautiful Boy. We will have pizza, popcorn, and beverages. Open to all. #fiu #collegiaterecovery #recoveryispossible
Life is not meant to be easy. It's meant to break you down so that you can be built back up into the strong and courageous warrior that you were made to be. We all have a purpose.⁣ ⁣ "You’re so inspiring and stories like yours are meant to tell and be proud of!" - @shaylatrujillo ❤ ⁣ These words gave me the courage to share a deeper side of myself that I don't speak about very freely with the world. There is always that fear of judgment and rejection that lingers in the back of one's mind. Well, not anymore because I have come to know my value over the years. Those words gave me the go ahead to be even more real and raw with those around me.⁣ ⁣ Today makes 8 years. I've been clean from such a deadly and life destroying substance for 8 years as of today. That's 8 years of climbing up this rugged mountain holding on for dear life. 8 years of celebrating each day as the wonderful gift that it is because the truth is, I'm extremely blessed to have even a single day. I'm extremely blessed to have overcome such a destructive drug and I give my credit to God because without Him I would have accomplished nothing.⁣ ⁣ I share this to inspire. To give hope. To break through that barrier that keeps people from opening up and sharing things that they fear will bring them rejection. No one is made to walk through this life alone. We are made to help one another through the rough times and celebrate with them through the good times.⁣ ⁣ So celebrate my 8 year victory with me because I took meth by the horns and beat that devil down! Thank you Jesus!!⁣ ⁣

•Weak minded people• You can’t expect much from someone if they are easily controlled and aren’t smart enough or better yet MATURE enough to be able to put a foot down or know who to stand by when you know the only people who stood by you through it all but hey... they just aren’t on your level mentally. I get it but then I also just can’t relate. For me if your about it 100, I will give that back to you 100% the same way. i’m just not easily manipulated what can i say💁🏻‍♀️ clean your mind and body of drugs AND ALCOHOL and people and places and things and willingness and maybe you’ll get there if you truly want it but it takes time and i don’t just dip on anyone working on themselves idk i guess some people are just different but it just ain’t me. • • • • • • #weakminded #loyalty #bereal #whentheyvebeenrealtoyou #quotes #sayings #quotestoliveby #recovery #sober #sobriety #wedorecover #sobermom #sobermommy #lifeclean #recoveryispossible #detox #detoxpeople #loyaltyiseverything #berealwithyourself #quotesandsaying
my #dinner tonight was homemade turkey meatballs with wholemeal penne and veggies. • • it’s been a while since i had pasta and it was slowly but surely slipping back into the fear food category, so tonight i ate it. yes, pasta does not settle well in my stomach. that’s probably just ana telling me i shouldn’t have it. but guess what. i wanted it, and i enjoyed every mouthful! my mum made the most delicious turkey meatballs as well to go with it and oh my god let me put you guys on. they are AMAZING!! turkey thigh and breast mince pressed into balls omg it is incredible. if you take anything away from my account, TRY THESE (and my tuna sandwich... obvi). • • i’m now curled up with a hot water bottle. yes i’m in a lot of pain but a little pain is worth it if it means i’ll get better sooner. • • night loves💖 • • #fuckana #anorexiarecovery #kickanasbutt #fuckanorexia #anorexiarecovering #anorexiarecoverymeal #healthyfood #whatieatinaday #anorexia #recovery #beatingana #fightingana #ed #edrecovery #eatittobeatit #ana #orthorexia #fightingorthorexia #strongnotskinny #fighting #recoverywin #edcommunity #edfighter #edwarrior #recoveryispossible #anawho #pasta #penne

FDOE today. Struggled a lot it has to be said. I’ve been trying to be as positive as I can lately but I’m currently eating so much more than Im mentally comfortable eating and I’m STILL NOT GAINING. I’m just getting more and more bloating & digestion issues but my weight isn’t going up, which means an increase of my meal plan is imminent and I’m so scared about that & if it drops ANY I’ll be sent back inpatient😭 I challenged fruit earlier aswell (grapes!!) idk why it’s such a big fear bc most people would say it’s ‘healthy’ but idk my ED takes the sugar content as an excuse for me to avoid it, which is bulllllllshit - if I want fruit I’ll have fruit. (Oh and also not pictured was a slice of toast bc I was craving it... gotta start learning to give my body what it wants🤷‍♀️) ~~~~ #edrecovery #recovery #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorderrecovery #mentalhealth #ed #anorexia #edwarrior #eatingdisorder #prorecovery #anarecovery #depression #food #selflove #anxiety #fitness #mentalhealthawareness #bodypositive #health #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #selfcare #edfighter #strongnotskinny #eatittobeatit #healthy #ana #nourishtoflourish #anorexiafighter #fuckanorexia

Hey 💛 Post différent des autres mais c’est juste pour vous annoncer que je vais laisser ce compte de côté. J’y viendrai en cas de besoin mais je sens que maintenant j’ai besoin de m’en détacher. J’ai repris un poids tout à fait normal par rapport à ma morphologie de base, je ne sais pas si j’ai finis d’en prendre, mais je verrai bien et j’essaierai d’accepter 🙂 • Avoir ce compte depuis quelques temps est plus néfaste qu’autre chose car je me dis « il faudrait que je post » alors qu’au final en ce moment ça me soule de poster des repas, je préfère poster sur mon autre compte. • En ce moment je vais vraiment mieux mentalement, je rigole beaucoup plus, je revis vraiment et ça fait du bien 😍 J’ai encore beaucoup de difficultés à assumer mon corps, je me sens souvent plus mal que bien dedans, mais je pense que c’est juste une histoire de temps, donc j’ai de l’espoir. • Merci beaucoup à toutes celles qui m’ont aidé et soutenu parce que c’est vraiment grâce à ce compte entre autre que j’ai pu m’en sortir. J’ai rencontré des personnes juste adorables, ça fait vraiment chaud au cœur ❤️ J’y reviendrai de temps en temps, et quand j’en ressentirai le besoin! Je vous fais des bisous, et prenez soin de vous surtout 💛🧡❤️ • • • • #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #realrecovery #edfighter #anafighter #anorexierecovery #edrecovery #edrecover #heath #recovery #recoveryiswothit #recoveryispossible

A year ago this girl walked into a room im pretty sure I never thought I'd see her in, and I'm fairly certain she was pretty surprised to see me too... oh how thankful I am that she did tho.

Palm Beach HERE I COME!! I love to love and support my friends all across the globe, and to see the light in others and treat them as if that is all I see! This whole life thing is a LOT more fun and fulfilling when we support one another!.⁣ 👯‍♀️⁣ My lovely friends @futuresrecovery invited me to this special event that they are so proud of, and I am honored to show some love and support! I am also planning some pretty epic podcasting while I'm there :) ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ I am so grateful for these opportunities and for these organizations who believe in me as a professional and who also love the pod! None of this would be my truth if I wasn't sober, doing the work to stay sober, and being mindful every day of who I am and who I want to be. I Love this life, and the second chance I got to live well. I won't waste a moment of it. ⁣ .⁣ .⁣ #addiction #recovery #alcoholic #sobriety #wedorecover #recoverywarrior #soberaf #secondchance #liveeverymoment #addict #alcoholfree #recoveryispossible #aa #thestruggleisreal #mindful #sobermom #12steps #sobermind #angelapugh #addictionunlimited #soberkc

The moment you're ready to quit is usually the moment right before the miracle happens. Keep moving forward. Don't give up.
Hole in one excitement!! 🏌🏼‍♀️
Not a cloud in the sky. Depression took away my capacity to see such beautiful and simple things such as this. Recovery brought it back, and, I’m so grateful. If you are struggling, I hope you can still see the brightness in the darkness. I promise you, it’s there. Keep going. #depression #anxiety #pnd #recoveryispossible #breakthestigma #noshame #light

Via (@queerfatfemme ) . . . In the recovery community it’s so important to whom you follow. What you scroll through. And you have permission to unfollow ANY account that’s triggering, not pro recovery, don’t go along with your values and morals, make you compare your recovery journey to there’s. . . . This is the most freeing thing to do! I often go through and re-evaluate the accounts I’m following. I ask myself the following questions: is this helping me in my recovery or making it worse? Does this inspire me? Are they promoting true recovery or pro Ana/eating disorder? Do I begin to compare myself to there recovery? Is this matching my values and morals? . . . This has helped me in my own journey. So remember you have the permission not feel guilty for unfollowing others! You have to protect yourself! #prorecovery #recoveryispossible #eatingdisorderrecovery #2fab4ana #addictionrecovery #edrecovery #anorexiarecovery #bulimiarecovery #bingeeatingrecovery #bed #orthorexia #ednos #haes #healthateverysize #recoverycoach #worthy #worth #selfworth #selfacceptance #hope #mentalhealth #endthestigma #ditchthediet #intuitiveeating #depression #anxiety #bpd #ptsd #mdd
You’ll never be ‘ready enough’ to recover. Never. You’ll never be thin enough, you’ll never be sick enough, you’ll never reach your ‘ideal’ weight , you’ll never feel valid enough, worthy enough, you’ll never be ENOUGH. Because guess what? Eating disorders are so competitive. Competitive against other people’s eating disorders, competitive against people without eating disorders, competitive against its own self. ------------------------------------------ And the thing is, I know a lot of people often (including me sometimes too, I’m not perfect at all!) believe, the validity to recovery has to be through professional clinical intervention - being admitted, being tubed, getting attached to a bunch of wires or drips or whatever. ------------------------------------------ But I’ll tell you one thing - the more you’re on an endless quest to become ‘sick enough’, the further your actual life is slipping from your fingers. The further are your chances of getting better. The harder it will be and the more pain you’ll endure in the long run. Not only physical damage, including permanent infertility, oesteoporosis, lifelong injuries, kidney damage etc which will render your life not only more restricted in the future, but you’ll lose friends. You’ll lose family. And when, when you’re either forced into recovery or finally choose recovery, you’re trying to get back your life before any of this, but eating disorders have the potential to destroy families, let alone friendships and relationships. And you’ll be starting over. ------------------------------------------ Being admitted to hospital and having to eat or stop behaviours and habits against your will won’t make you choose recovery. It may make you gain weight, but that’s all completely futile if the decision to recover hasn’t been made. It may temporarily give your body what it needs but it will never determine whether you’ll follow through with the routine once you’re out. It also makes it often harder to get back into ‘real life’ and function. ------------------------------------------ (Continued below 👇🏽)
#Repost @anxietysupport.info with @get_repost ・・・ Typically we think of depression as something for the depressive and the therapist to deal with. But it affects not just the sufferer, but their friends, their loved ones and their wider community. So really, it’s an issue that needs to be managed, and understood, by everyone. What I’m trying to do is to explain depression so that the non-depressive, be it a close friend or family member, can best understand what is happening, and how they can effectively deal with it. Don’t ask ‘why people are you depressed?’ and get frustrated if there is no clear answer. There is almost never a clear answer, sometimes there is no answer, it is incredibly complicated and every case of depression is different. I know that there are 350 million people that experience depression worldwide according to the World Health Organization – but I’m likely to feel like I’m the only one. Because depression, for the most part, is incredibly exhausting, I’m spending a lot of mental energy simply trying not to succumb to negative thoughts. Even very basic tasks like getting out of bed or preparing a meal can sometimes feel incredibly taxing. Consider what it feels like to be stuck in quicksand, this is how moving through a depressive episode #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthadvice #Mentalhealthsupport #depression #mentalhealthcondition #bipolar #anxiety #socialanxiety #ptsd #mentalillness #recoveryispossible #positivity #support #kindness #alteduk #meditation #selfdiscovery #freeyourmind #innerpeace #meditate #mindfulness #wellness #awareness #mindset #spirituality #zen
I am in recovery and I am very open about it. I am very open about my past. My alcoholism, drug use, gambling, childhood trauma. I do not believe in being anonymous. The more I talk about my past, the more I talk about my addiction and the more I talk about my mistakes, the more I heal from them. I have many regrets in my life but I have absolutely no shame about admitting that I'm in recovery. #joemitsch #recovery #noshame #overcomer #determinedtosucceed #yesican #believer
— that feeling when you’re not necessarily sad, but you just feel really empty. — Recovery is so damn hard. Feeling lonely and lost right now, but the feelings are my constant companions since weeks. Nobody would see if i’d slowly fading away. Like i were the one and onliest Person on this planet. And at the same time there are thousands of people around me and i’m standing in the middle feeling alone. I wish that someone would saw all my pain and take it away from me and hug me and hold me so tight that i can’t falling into a million little pieces. But these childlike needs are something extremely threatening and embarrassing for me. Though i know that probably everyone knows such feelings. I have no idea how to deal with this as i actually don’t wanna tell it my clinic therapist, it just kinda makes me hate myself even more 😔 🖤 #mentalhealthawareness #youmatter #staystrong #stayalive #giballesnurnichtauf #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #recovery #borderline #anorexia #ptsd #selfharmrecovery #suicideisnottheanswer #tavorisiert #suicidal #psychiatry #inpatient #closedward #suicide

If you can’t love yourself, no one else will...and you won’t be able to love anyone else? I’ve always hated these sayings. So much. I haven’t loved myself in a decade. So telling me that no one else will either and I’m not capable of giving others love...is that supposed to make me feel better? Well it doesn’t. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I disagree with these statements with every atom in my body. Over the past decade, I have loved so many people. I love my family, friends, pets. My boyfriend. I love him, and he loves me as well, he loves me so much. I wholeheartedly believe it is possible to give AND receive love even if you’re struggling to love yourself. We are our worst critics. It is absolutely heartbreaking to me that people are enforcing the thought that if you don’t love yourself, you’re unlovable. That is completely false. It is so easy for us to pick out our own flaws, because it’s human nature. We are with ourselves 24/7, 365. Every second. We know ourselves better than anyone, we know our own fears, secrets, dreams, accomplishments, failures, demons. And that is why it’s SO easy to be SO hard on ourselves. Everyone has demons, everyone has made mistakes. That doesn’t mean you aren’t worthy of love. I don’t love myself right now. But I know others do, and that is what keeps me going. You are loved, regardless of how you view yourself. Self love is so important and completely revolutionary, I pray that everyone will experience it. But if you cannot, that NEVER makes you undeserving of unconditional love.

My hubby and I went to a Korean restaurant tonight and shared these besutiful dishes 😍 Sharing has become a thing for us. At first I used it as anexcuse for not having too eat very much. He ate most of the food and my eating disorder was happy. Also, it always terrified me because I couldn‘t portion the food and I had no idea how much I‘d eaten. Or I was scared I‘d over-eat because I couldn‘t tell if I was full. But now, after a lot if practice, I love sharing food because it‘s lovely to eat together, it‘s like bonding over food haha ☺️ I am okay with not knowing how much I eat. Or if I eat a little too much because it‘s not the end of the world. I‘m home now, ready for my dessert of ice cream 🍦#recoveryispossible #anawho #2fab4ana #anawarrior #recoveryisworthit #realrecovery #prorecovery #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #edrecovery #strongnotskinny #healthynotskinny #gainingweightiscool #eatittobeatit #nourishnotpunish #memoriesovermacros #fearfood #foodblogger #foodporn #motivation #youcandoit #bestrong #strongereveryday #eatingdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery
... Day 23 of "weight unknown" ... Yesterday, in celebration of my 2 year Life-iversary, I wore the power bracelet I made 3 years ago in residential during one of our craft times😍 ⚠️WARNING: poop talk⚠️ 💗💩💗💩💗💩💗 I've been trying to wean myself off of my nightly pint of @halotopcreamery ice cream. For the last 2 years it seems a pint (sometimes 2 if necessary) a night keeps me regular. It has completely eaten away (pardon the pun) at my savings and I just can't afford $5-10/day to guarantee I keep pooping, but so far I haven't found anything else that gives the same steady results. I'm down to a half-pint every other day and while I was still going daily, it was becoming more difficult and definitely not the same physical and emotional satisfaction I used to get from going several times a day. It's causing a lot of stress and dangerous ED thoughts are creeping in constantly. Well Wednesday came and went with no poop. I thought it was ok, there's a day every few months when I don't get to poop. But Thursday came and went without anything either. I had to fight the thoughts in order to keep eating. It was difficult, but I managed. Yesterday I was reallyyyyy hoping for a great bowel movement, so that I could truly enjoy my day and not worry if there was something medical going on, GI wise. Nothing. No sign of poop anywhere. I was able to enjoy my day anyway, including food, but in the middle of the night I had a complete breakdown. I was mortified by how large my body has become, I was overcome with shame for actually believing I looked good (and publicly announcing it) just hours earlier, I remembered how loved I felt when I was sick and dying, I was filled with sadness thinking nobody will love me now that I'm chubby-ish, I had fleeting thoughts of wanting to die. I was seconds away from a massive laxative overdose. But I was able to pause to breathe. I ate a pint of HT even though I wasn't exactly hungry, but I was desperate to poop. I put on my jammies, washed my face, brushed my teeth, and went to sleep. I'm happy to report that I've gone 4 times already today☺️and I'm reminding myself that I *am* a fucking goddess...

One time back in high school, my friends invited me to the lake for a get-together. I ordered a bikini from a magazine thinking “ugh I NEED to look like that size 0 model before it gets here.” That week I ate as little as possible, exercised vigorously and was in tears before going to this lake party because my body didn’t look like the swimsuit model’s. What we see in the media MATTERS. So many young women are trapped comparing themselves to highly-edited, photoshopped and cosmetically-manipulated pictures of celebs, models and influencers. The good news is that these days WE are a part of the media. WE are in charge of what we post on Instagram. And WE can contribute to the future of social media, honest advertising and women’s empowerment. 🙌 That’s why I’m so honored to be a part of the #AerieREAL campaign. And guess what?!
You get to be a part of it too!!! 👯‍♀️ 👉 Share your unretouched swim photos with #AerieREAL and tagging @Aerie 😍 For every post, Aerie will donate $1 (up to $50,000!) to @NEDA , a non-profit that supports those affected by eating disorders. 🙏 It’s time to love the swim we’re in and inspire others to do the same. ♥️ Who’s with me?! 🙋‍♀️ #AeriePartner . . . . #aerie #selflove #selfloveisthebestlove #loveyourself #loveyourbody #beyoutiful #bodylove #neda #nedawareness #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #edrecovery

A Step In The Right Direction (ASITRD) started as a result of one person’s journey to recovery from alcoholism. ASITRD started off as a women’s sober living opening its doors in the year 2000. Over the years we have continuously grown and now have a men’s sober living and intensive outpatient treatment center. Our approach is one that comes from a place of supportive genuine care of the highest level with the goal of empowering clients to success in their recovery. Our staff creates an environment that focuses on fostering care and support to help each individual accomplish recovery. #NavigateYourRecovery . . . . . #navigateyourrecovery #soberprofessionals #roadtorecovery #sobermovement #stayontrack #holisticrehab #choosesobriety #chooserecovery #pathtorecovery #soberliving #recoveryispossible #northridge #sanfernando #losangeles #california #asitrd #personaljourney #womensoberliving #menssoberliving #staff #allstarstaff #supportivecare #genuinecare #empower #successinrecovery #fosteringcare #support #care #accomplishrecovery #recoverandlive

Thank you all for your love for the stand up comedy video I posted! 😊✨You have no idea how much the encouragement means to me! 🙏Definitely makes me smile and reassures me I’m on the right track! 💪So thank you very very much! ❤️ I’ve reached 30k followers today and I’m still positively shocked that you guys actually read my epic captions!!! 🙈 As a writer that keeps me going but as a sufferer of ptsd and depression/anxiety it makes me feel so much less lonely with it all! And I’m hoping that goes both ways! Some of you know I stopped talk therapy a while ago when I went travelling but I got offered specific therapy for Ptsd by a kind charity - despite the fact I am not a veteran. Makes me feel insanely blessed! 💫 Ever heard of the human givens rewind technique? Well that’s what I’m doing now. I’ve had two sessions so far so I can’t quite say yet how effective it is. But it’s definitely completely different to my previous therapy! Which I like! A lot! Anyways I was supposed to go to various b-day parties tonight but anxiety shit kept me up all of last night so I need chill time by myself now. And that’s okay (big progress! Taking Mari-time! No fomo! No guilt!) 🤗 Hope everyone is ok out there!! London love, fellow crazies! ❤️😘❤️ #mentalhealthblogger #ptsd #humangivens #therapy #anxiety #depression #lettinggo #pelirroja #bopo #bodypositivity #redheads #ruiva #redhead #ginger #beyou #vulnerabilityisstrength #communityovercompetition #femalecomedian #rotehaare #writer #effyourbeautystandards #curvy #honormycurves #creativepreneur #nlp #recoveryispossible #nomoreguilt #beyourself #selfcare

Lately I’ve been struggling with what I thought were anxiety attacks. But this has been next level. It’s not only my brain that’s been wired, but I’ve been having a lot of physical symptoms. - Body aches. Headaches. Nausea. Dizziness. Difficult breathing. Shakes. Racing heart. Feeling like something thick is running through my veins. - I decided I wasn’t going to sit around and let these attacks control my day. They’ve been debilitating. I’ve had to leave my classes for upwards of 30 minutes to try to get things under control. I’ve had to stay hyper focused to try and concentrate the anxiety to one part of my body so I can continue to function. But because this has been happening once a week, and because I’ve been fine in between attacks, I knew something had to be done. - I called up my psychiatrist and here’s what we figured out together: The very first medication I was put on was Lexapro, an anti-depressant. And we thought it was controlling my depression, which I now have other meds that serve that function, so I’ve been working towards getting off of it. I’ve been on a 5mg dosage for months now. But what we realized was this: when I first started with Lexapro, it was to help with panic. And as my panic attacks got worse at that time, my primary care doctor kept upping the dosage. We forgot about that. Bingo. - Identifying your triggers is important. Identifying patterns from the beginning of your treatment is important. Identifying what path you took with your medication to get to a healthy space is important. It’s hard to make those calls and admit that you need help. But like I’ve said, this kind of journey is not one you can take alone. So no, I’m not getting off of Lexapro any time soon, but a few weeks from now, hopefully I’ll be catastrophizing less and I won’t feel like irrational thoughts are ruining my day. Always a work in progress.
