I have been a MIA for the past couple of weeks due to the fact that I have been struggling. I haven't been feeling myself due to the fact that I've been dealing with a back injury that has me out of work yet again, I'm struggling through working on a slew of personal issues and my anxiety has been through the roof. I have been finding it difficult to give myself the self-care and love that I know I desperately need. I know things will fall together, it just takes time. #mentalhealthawareness #backinjury #anxiety #recovery

Day 162 of 30 for #30forstrongminds, in support of those dealing with mental health issues (e.g., #anxiety, #depression, #bipolar, etc.). This one hits close to home for me, as some of the people in my life deal with varying challenges to get through their day. Helping to raise #awareness is one way to show that I'm looking out for you. #letscheckonafriend Take time to let those people in your life who deal with any mental illness know that they are loved and appreciated. It could make all the difference in their day, and help give them the courage to work through their challenges. If you, or a loved one, may need help, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 800-273-8255. If you are seeing this post, know that you are a awesome and amazing person. And yes, you matter to me. #mentalhealthawareness #monstercompassion #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthsupport #endthestigma #corecrew #corefocus

We know as parents we need to support Tyler to embrace his ADHD. By letting him enjoy being the more emotional, forgetful, natural, funny, intuitive, inspirational, procrastinating, unplanned, passionate ADHD he is. Help him avoid a life in which he tries not to be ADHD, rather find one in which he can be ADHD, be more himself, let him do what comes naturally, allow him to be passionate about and engaged by. Embrace your ADHD. #ADHDForBeginners #childadhd #adhdadult #adhdlife #adhdproblems #childadvocacy #childadhd #parenttips #mentalhealth #positivecopingskills #specialneeds #momblog #anxiety #health #awareness #adhdsupport #motivation #disability #advocate #positivequotes #mentalhealthawareness #selfawareness #endthestigma #recovery #mentalhealthsupport #stigma #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #helpothers #journey #depression

@creatingchristine

There was a time when I would look at this picture and see nothing but the way my body looks. πŸ‘€ Even on this day, I felt I didn't belong because we were performing a piece about self-acceptance and body positivity and I was not in a good place mentally. I had planned to take a cool, body positive photo to match the message of our piece, but I couldn't bring myself to do that. πŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ But today, looking at this picture with fresh eyes, I see two badass women with a passion and a message. I see that it doesn't ever have to matter how my body looks or how much it weighs because it carries me through this life, allows me to do cool things when I dance, provides me with a strong foundation. I can also see potential. I beat myself up a lot for my lack of productivity as a byproduct of my mental illness, but I know that it's not something that I will let hinder me. I am proud of myself. ✌🏻 The other day I saw and instantly loved the hashtag #mybadassbody. I mean, who wouldn't love that?! It's time to stop viewing ourselves with such a harsh lens. The entire point of the dance I did with @jazzlebedazzle was to spread the message that you are so much more than society's narrow view of you. I love my badass body, and you should love yours, too! β€οΈπŸ’›πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸ’œ

@bipolar.ity

I used to feel like the only person suffering from Bipolar. When I'd go to the behavioral hospital it seemed as though the other kids would hate me for being happy/manic. They'd enjoy my laughter and energy, but they'd also resent it and bitterly tell me they wish they had what I had. The staff didn't know what to make of me, they made me feel like i didn't belong. We'd have group therapy about dealing with depression but I couldn't stop smiling, I couldn't stop being fidgety and giggly, I couldn't pretend that I could even fathom depression in the moment. I'd do stupid things during lunch like walk off to the other side of the cafeteria and play with the curtains. I'd wrap my whole body in the curtains, then the whole group of patients would be punished by the leading counselor for my manic symptoms. There was no sympathy for me, and the bitterness the other patients felt for me deepened. I'd get my review sheet for the day and after I'd finish it sometimes I'd try to rip it apart with my teeth, the mental health counselor couldn't comprehend my erratic behavior, tried to punish me to make the behavior stop. I was happy I suppose, in a sense that my mind couldn't stop and my smile kept widening, but when the symptoms got worse no one there really understood. Instead of anyone teaching me how to cope with manic symptoms, I kept getting in trouble. I took my experience in the hospital and felt like the whole world would treat me this way. I suppose, yeah most people won't understand. But, weirdly enough, Instagram has given me perspective that I'm not alone. There are so many amazing people I've met on here that have gone through the same symptoms or situations. They make me feel less alone in the mental illness advocacy community that usually emphasizes depression and anxiety. While depression and anxiety are extremely important topics that need to be addressed, Mania is as well. And I'm so so so so glad, that there are so many amazing people on Instagram that shed light on the mental illnesses that are less common than depression and anxiety. Thank you so much. I know now I am not alone. ❀

@fit_beauty13

πŸ™ I want to help others going through the same things I go through. I wish I could hug you tight and tell you, you are going to be ok, you can do this, I know you can. Because all the times I felt like dying, guilty, ashamed, scared, hiding my face from the world, hiding the real me, just so others wouldn't judge me, just hurt me even more. Now I'm not afraid, I was diagnosed with pmdd over 3 years ago, and diagnosed with bipolar disorder less than a month ago. Going to the doctor and finding out what was going on with me, has been a life saver! Treatments are going well and I'm finally accepting that I am sick, but being sick doesn't make me any less of a mom, wife, daughter, friend. I'm a human being... I'm wired differently, but who cares! I know I'm not perfect, nor will I ever be. I know that the stuff I have been through... has made me stronger, and I will keeping fighting, even when I have been knocked down. #neverlosehope #breakthrough #bipolardisorder #pmdd #iamwhoiam #hopelives #endthestigma #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mooddisorder #hypomania

But everyone has their demons and I know now you're no longer in pain. So many people showed up tonight because we all love you. You should have seen it. You were such a funny kid and was always making us laugh. Tonight wasn't a goodbye, it was a see you later. Fly high bud. We'll miss you.

Mental Health Monday: "Growing up in poverty, traumatic experiences as a child at the hands of my father, witnessing domestic violence in my home growing up, and being sexually assaulted as a teenager; all lead to me being clinically depressed and in a constant state of anxiety. From early childhood depression and anxiety significantly interfered with my quality of life. I was very withdrawn and isolated. I didn't have many friends, barely talked to my family, and thoughts of suicide were the norm. My confidence and self-esteem was very low..." read more on joyday.org

@sarahelizabethchapin

*Link in Bio* If you looked at this picture, you wouldn't think I was sick. That's what social security decided when they denied me disability the other day. A lot of feelings came up and I wrote a blog post about my struggles with working and the disability process. Please read this one as I think many are unaware of the issues I bring up. My doctor determined my issues have become severe enough to interfere with my ability to work especially as my mental health has made my physical health go to hell. Two therapists have told me to stop working until I get better. But the government says that doctors and therapists aren't allowed to be the ones to say you're disabled when it comes to applying for benefits and someone who has never met me and has no education or training when it comes to diagnosing people gets to decide if I'm sick enough. If I appeal the decision it'll take months and then if that gets denied I'd have to go to court. It could take years. But if I'm too sick to work how am I supposed to be able to handle years of lawyers and judges? I can't afford to not work those years but if they see me working even if it's making my health worse, they'll use that as proof I'm capable of working and don't need the benefits. They intentionally make it as hard as possible to get help because they don't want to have to pay you. It's the most dehumanizing thing in the world to become a number whose fate is in the hands of a stranger in an understaffed office. I cried for hours when I got the letter. To be honest, I'm pretty panicked because I have no idea what I'm supposed to do when the people treating me are telling me I can't work. This picture doesn't tell the whole story. I don't look like that every day. Most days my eyes are red and puffy from crying. Most days I have no energy to do my makeup. The day I took this, I had no choice but to be out in public and went through the motions of looking like someone who is well. You can't tell someone's health just by looking at them. I despise the term "high-functioning" because being articulate and self-aware makes people think I'm better off than I am and I don't get the help I desperately need.

@daniz17

I have been sucking at absolutely everything lately. I sleep until I have to go to work, I work then I come home and sleep. I've been a shitty friend, a crap dog mom, an uninspired yoga teacher who eats junk 24/7 and sleeps more hours than is awake. I've lost myself. I dropped out of an awesome volunteer program in the last week of training, I haven't been doing anything with my yoga instructor certification and the only time I'm active is when I'm clocked in getting paid for it. What happened!? I'm sorry if I've disappeared lately. I shut my phone off and basically have been pretty disconnected with the world lately. I try to hide when I'm feeling this way for the sole reason that when I admit it - like I am now - it becomes real and I have to admit that I'm going to live with depression for the rest of my life and no matter how educated I am about it it'll always come and go. And when it's here it really sinks its teeth into me. But if it's here that means it eventually has to go. And when it does I have some amazing things im looking forward to starting.

Its kind of ironic how you have to go through physical hell to actually get better and come off dependant drugs πŸ˜’ Last night was the worst. 9/14 thank god I had no nightmares this time. Don't get me wrong, apart from the intense physical symptoms, I've actually never felt better mentally, no random crying or breakdowns, actually losing weight....that I can tell...not keen on seeing what the scales say and I am a lot more "talkative" for people who have known me.....I have not been. #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #depression #anxiety #mentalillness #suicide #motivation #mentalillnessawareness #ptsd #inspiration #detox #selfharm #selfcare #love #help #depressed #suicidal #selflove #positivevibes #photography #motivationalquotes #mooddisorder #mentalwellness #endthestigma #bipolar #art #wellness #weightloss #success Powered by @TagOmatic

@ibeerocc

I smile. I joke. I do. It is all a mask. It seems as I continue to accept a part of me that I had no clue existed, I am finding myself growing worse. I'm grieving sort of. I'm grieving a loss of who I used to be; who I've wished to be. No matter how many times my heart steps in to protect me, my mind always seems to overpower its weariness. I'm just tired.

Nobody will protect you from your suffering. You can't cry it away or eat it away or starve it away or walk it away or punch it away or even therapy it away. It's just there, and you have to survive it. You have to endure it. You have to live through it and love it and move on and be better for it and run as far as you can in the direction of your best and happiest dreams across the bridge that was built by your own desire to heal. . .

@amandaberlanga_

Living with anxiety is a full time job. The person living with someone who has anxiety works overtime. This isn't a jab at mental health. It's an appreciation for the overtime workers. This week has been a monster for me. Not only did I start my new job but I also contracted a 24 hr Norovirus two days into my new work week. The anxiety of a new job, mixed with constant vomiting, stomach cramping, fatigue, and dizziness with a visit to the ER on Friday along with the constant mantra of "They're probably going to fire you" was way too much for my anxiety to bear. I've been a shut-in, missing Cuban food, my great-grandmother, the beach, and wanting some normalcy of a routine as everything is still new. New is beautiful. But my anxiety can't handle new. My anxiety comes in to amplify every emotion, nerve, thought, neuron, and sense I have. I made it to work trembling not because I was sick; anxiety was making me sick. Everyday I feel like it's slowly killing me. It's hard to tell when I'm sick from the flu or sick from my mind. But then this guy comes in - the guy that married me. He married my happiness, excitement, love, fear, and the heavy ball and chain of anxiety. Through all of the chaos of the past four days he's done nothing but be there. Missing work to be in the ER with me, assuring me that I'm breathing, counting to 100 to calm my nerves, holding my hair back as I vomit, rubbing my back as I tremble and scratch at myself from nerves, allowing me to fidget and scream while holding me - treating me like a human being. I'm beyond thankful to have someone that understands me and separates ME from what anxiety can do to ME. It takes someone with insight and understanding to love me at my worst. You continue to be nothing but incredible. I can never thank you enough for what you do. I love you and my anxiety fears you. You tackle it head on and see what it does to me. You love me just the same. Thanks for working overtime. #AnxietyAndDepression #Anxiety #HusbandAppreciation #Husband #writersofinstagram #poetrycommunity #Writers #Writing #Poetry #MentalHealth #MentalHealthAwareness #SpilledInk #AnxietyAttacks #ItGetsBetter

My scars are fading Part of me is glad. Nobody likes seeing them. My dad once told me that he hated seeing "those hideous, ugly scars," He told me they were gross. He didn't ever want to see them again. He does not seem to understand Those scars - those hideous, ugly scars - Are the reason I'm still breathing. I fought that battle. And I won. I am not ashamed of them, They are a part of me. They are the reminder that I fought a war alone. I did not have help or a hand to hold except my own. I'm not weak. I am strong. I am fierce.

Using my tripod today was a fail. πŸ˜‘πŸ˜– I couldn't figure out how to work around the bright gym lighting. Argh I'll figure it out so I can eventually make a decent video showing a glimpse into my workouts. I'm starting to think I might need an actual camera but I really don't want to attract attention with a big ass camera at the gym lol I hate attention it makes me really anxious. I fucking hate making videos in public but I'll have to teach myself and get comfortable if I want to make cool stuff to add on here. I'll try again tomorrow. πŸ˜œπŸ€“
