Getting treated with basic respect within the medical system should not be hard. Unfortunately for many of us with chronic illnesses, this is not the case. We aren’t just fighting our conditions - we’re fighting for help. I’m so tired of this. I’m so anxious about tomorrow. But I know this too will pass. 🌹 #dysautonomia #gastroparesis #chronicillness #infusion #potssyndrome

Settling into another of my bargain spa days Henlow Grange. I’m going to start calling them Respite Days because they give me a break from looking after myself! I really really need this one. Last few weeks have been up and down and my muscles are really suffering, so a day of heat, water & rest is perfect. I have a Thalassotherapy Pool session at 4pm, better than a massage. #spoonietreat #fibromyalgia #chronicillness #respite #selfcare #wishitwaslonger

I love this quote from Louise hay via @spoonie_village its so true too. How many years have you spent feeling sickly, feeling like a patient, feeling like you can’t do anything because you’re technically ‘DISabled’? How has that been for you? What if you tried something different? What if you tried changing how you think of yourself? For a limited time only I’m offering a free coaching call to see where you are now and how we can help you. Comment ME! And I’ll DM you the details 🧡 .

@t1diabetica

It’s my first day back at work since the holidays and I am low key stressin that a) I’ve forgotten how to design and b)Betty will misbehave ALL day. • • • In preparation (and also due to my anxiety the past couple of days) I have reduced my insulin by a lot. Not only do I expect my ratios to change now that I’m not on holiday but it helps me to remain calm knowing I’ve reduced the chances that I might go low every hour...which is NOT ideal when your back at work and trying to gather your brain cells again. • • • Today, diabetes will not be priority and that’s okay. Today, my mental health and well-being is my priority. If I have to run a little high in order to remain calm and collected then that’s what I’m going to do today. And I’ll use what I learn today, to slowly adjust tomorrow. In my opinion, sometimes it’s okay to not put all your focus and attention into your diabetes, but more into yourself.

disease /dɪˈziːz/ . noun: Disorder affecting the physical structure and/or function in human, animal or plant. . dis-ease /dɪs iːz/ . noun: Feeling of agitation and disturbance, absence of comfort. Dis-ease encompasses much more than just the structure and function of an organism. We can experience dis-ease of the mind in the form of anxiety, overwhelm and depression. There is dis-ease of the spirit when we feel unfulfilled, discontentment and lacking purpose. . We have way more influence over that state of our dis-ease than we’ve been led to believe. .

@mark_fighting_ms

Vermoeidheid en spierzwakte zijn twee veel voorkomende symptomen waaraan patiënten met multiple sclerose (MS) lijden. Een Duits onderzoek vond dat groenethee-extract effectief het energiemetabolisme in de spieren verbetert. Het effect was opvallend sterker bij mannen dan bij vrouwen. • Ik drink momenteel ook geen koffie, alleen maar water en biologische groene thee. Ik ben benieuwd wat het effect daar van is. Ik zeg niet dat ik nooit meer koffie ga drinken, maar ik hou altijd wel van experimentjes. Dan lees je weer wat op internet en dan wil ik het meteen uitproberen. En groene thee is ook gewoon lekker. 😊

TW: Rant I just spent the last half hour reading the latest “SD Tea.” We can all agree that the SD community can be toxic. We all have service dogs. We all have disabilities. We all have our own opinion on how a SD should be trained. We all have a lot to learn. Some of us are further along than others. Some of us make mistakes. But it’s up to each handler to be responsible for their own dog. why we are so focused on spreading hate and creating drama? Why are we not focused on learning more from each other? Why aren’t we simply being honest with ourselves and accepting that maybe it’s not our responsibility to call out another handlers mistakes and choices but rather join forces and help instead! I’ve been caught up in offline drama lately with several Canadian Service Dog organizations. It’s been awful, these organizations have destroyed my confidence and I’ve had to work really hard to find the motivation and courage to continue Bentley’s training! In my books any and all bullying is inappropriate and will not be tolerated. At the end of the day I’m just a native woman with a Pup that likes panda bears who is training to give me a better quality of life. #letsbefriends

I love her, she’s hates me 😂 Things are changing in my life. Financially and regarding the next steps. It’s never easy to transition for me and coming off a medication I’ve been on 6 years is not going to make evolving any easier but hopefully worth it.

@sarahdolliebeauty

Totally needed the pick me up of playing with my @JeffreeStar #blueblood palette yesterday. My health has been awful this week which has caused my M.E and chronic fatigue to flare up, and having two young children this brings on so much mum guilt because I want to be able to run round and run play and laugh and have fun. But I can't do that. Compromise is a big part of being like this. We love our board games, reading and just snuggling up to watch a film. Activities that are much easier on my body. So even though my children are happy and ALWAYS looked after, I still feel useless which affects my depression. Playing with make up really does help lift me up and lift my spirits ❤️ it's the one thing I do just for me and I love creating my bright colourful peacock looks like this one 😍❤️ hope you all like ❤️ What's everyone's favourite colours to put on their eyes?! Asking for a reason 😘😘 Ps yesterday was definitely a baggy jumper kind of day for my blood test lol...

Insomnia is a common sleep disorder that can make it hard to fall asleep, hard to stay asleep, or cause you to wake up too early and not be able to get back to sleep. You may still feel tired when you wake up. Insomnia can sap not only your energy level and mood but also your health, work performance and quality of life. . . 🌱Choose to live! @Alivewellnessus . . #insomnia #anxiety #sleep #depression #chronicillness #health #chronicpain #fatigue #insomniac #cbd #mindfulness #sleepy #organic #fibromyalgia #spoonie #tired #susahtidur #kesehatan #ptsd #mentalhealthawareness #motivation #natural #stress #arthritis #lifestyle #invisibleillness #rest #life #kkliforce #sandiego

This one is very good for sleeping. Some are pretty silly and fun while others take suprisingly dark turns. 😳 It's an absolute joy though, that's for sure. . Late night listening. I have a hard time sleeping. Some nights are worse than others. . . I tend to wake up quite often, usually due to pain from being in one place too long. So I always try to have one of my favorite audio books playing low in the background. That way when I awake I can hear my book instead of begin thinking of all the stupid things I need to/want to do.

@michelle_roger

Today I finally found out why I've felt so exhausted and completely trashed the past few months. It would seem that I was bitten by a mosquito who decided to hit me up with a nice case of Ross River Fever which on top of Dysautonomia is just a persistent funfest and a half. . . The utter exhaustion, PEM, pain and weakness, increased brainfog and all the rest I've been dealing with finally make sense. . . I got a bit teary when I found out as it's so good to have an answer and I'm so exhausted these days tears come extra easy. RRF can go self-fornicate as can the shitty mosquito who gave it to me, but at least I know why I've not been able to throw this flare. . . To celebrate? I came home and cuddled chooks in my backyard. Lola looks huge as she's all fluffed up in the cold but she's as light as, well, many feathers, and even I can balance her on one hand. And 3 days in a bun does wonders for volume and curls. Go not being able to wash my hair at present!!! Now for another Nanna Nap. . . [Images: a series of 3 images of Michelle sitting in her red garden chairs in her backyard. She is pale and wears a thick black jumper, leggings and boots and grey floral 70s secretary dress. She holds a brown and gold chicken in one hand and black walkingstick in the other. Her pink hair is big and curly. Behind her a grey paling fence, bushes and pot plants can be seen. The final photo shows a close up of Lola, a brown and gold chicken because she's lovely.] . . #UpAndDressed #Dysautonomia #ChronicIllness #Disability #Fashion #FrockingUp #40Plusfashion #DisabledAndStylish #365Daywithdisability #Walkingstick #DisabilityFashion #DisabilityStyle #ChronicFashion #ChronicStyle #RuralStyle #RuralFashion #Gippsland #Australia #Chickens #Chooks

@just_louby

This is so very true, we spend so long, before and after diagnosis, being defined by our illnesses. I had my job, friends, the gym, a social life and then bam it all disappeared and in its place was chronic and mental illness, a lack of understanding, so much judgement and nasty opinions. How do you pick yourself up again and start working on your new ‘normal’?? What should I be doing? What am I capable of doing? What goals are realistic? Can I achieve them or will it just lead to more disappointment and failure?!? I like to think I’m in acceptance of Chronic and Mental illness now and I’m finding ways to work around the symptoms and flare ups but I still don’t know what I should be doing, or what my purpose is anymore. Ive has afew moments of thinking that ‘this’ is what I want to do, or ‘that’ would be a great hobby/job I can do at home.......and then something changes, a new symptom, a flare up and I’m dragged back down the snake to square one! I’m trusting the process and hoping the path becomes clear again very soon, until then ill keep working on me 🙏🏻💖 #chronicillness #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #fibro #fibromyalgia #trust #trusttheprocess #findingmywayhome #trusttheuniverse #keepgoing

@messy_mindss

Your life matters more than being with people who don't believe in you or make you feel unworthy. It doesn't matter if leaving them make things awkward or you don't know a good way to distance yourself. What matters is that you do it. There's is no easy way you stop spending time with people and it will almost always be messy. But it will be worth it. -Sd. • • • • • • • • • • • • • ❤️ #health #chronicpain #chronicpainwarrior #instatags @insta.tags #chronicpainawarness #chronicillness #invisibleillness #chronicpainsurvivor #endurance #survive #invisibleillnessawarness #fatigue #disability #smilethroughthepain #spoonie #spoonielife #chromicfatigue #spoonieproblems #cfs #pain #chroniclife #spooniewarrior #spooniestrong #painsucks #autoimmune #fibromyalgia #crps #heretohelp #painwarrior

Supergaaf nieuws ! op donderdag 22 Augustus kom ik op tv & radio !! Het verschijnt dan in de loop van de dag op internet op omroepzeeland.nl. Vanaf 17:00 uur is het op tv te zien, de nieuwsuitzending wordt elk half uur herhaald. Radio is wat lastig aan te geven, maar waarschijnlijk is het tussen 12 en 13 uur en/of 16 en 18 uur. Ik hoop hiermee te helpen om meer erkenning te krijgen voor lyme. Zodat uiteindelijk iedereen geholpen en genezen kan worden ! 🦠 @omroepzeeland #opnames #erkenning #tv #radio #story #lymedisease #awareness #chronicillness

@shesgotflare

When you have to remind your own damn self that this flare will pass because my brain is not really believing it. Real talk: the feeling of being a burden is working me hard today. My kid needed me today and my body went full flare. What does that mean? Exhaustion so heavy you don’t know how to do the simplest things with the small amount of energy you have. Fatigue so consuming you think it will eat you up and you will cease to exist. Pain in your joints and muscles like you’ve been beaten up severely. This is no exaggeration just fact. And it’s my reality today. And if it yours too I’m flipping sorry. It’s so tough to exist this way some times and that’s okay to admit. It sucks today, and that’s okay. I’m a tough woman who fights these flares not always with class but with strength. I just need to find it hiding down deep somewhere. #truth #sjogrens #spoonie #fatigue #sjogrenssyndrome #sjogrens #flare #sadness #warrior #strength #autoimmunedisease #autoimune #chronicillness #invisibleillness #rest

Let's talk about tea o'clock. I'm obsessed with tea. It does help me with a lot of stuff. For example:⁠ ⁠ Mint is wonderful for bloating, especially for the surgery gas. It soothes upset stomach, prevents nausea and improves digestion which helps a lot with IBS symptoms. It also treats bad breath. And it's pretty great for healthy skin and hair. It helps a lot with hormonal acne and reduces stress.⁠ ⁠ Nettle has historically been used to treat pain and sore muscles, especially related to arthritis.⁠ ⁠ Ginger Lemon Tea can reduce nausea and it's anti-inflammatory.⁠ ⁠ Turmeric tea is is proven to have anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties.⁠ ⁠ There is plenty of other teas that help with a lot of stuff, for example a lot of ready combos of morning tea and sleeping tea. Combo of Amitryptiline an Night tea is wonderful, knocks me right over :D⁠ ⁠ Do you use tea to help you with your illness?⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ ⁠ #tea #teatime #endometriosis #endometriosisawareness #endo #endowarrior #endosisters #endobelly #invisibleillness #endostrong #endometriosiswarrior #endosister #fuckendo #endometriosissupport #endofighter #uterus #endometriosissucks #endosucks #chronicpain #chronicillness #womenshealth #spoonie #spoonielife #illness #instachronicpain #pain #selfcare #pelvicpain #periodproblems #menstrualhealth

@helenmclaughlin_

I’ve been volunteering as a support group leader for @endometriosis.uk since April 2015, and the group honestly means the world to me. It’s one of the things I’m most proud of in life, and last nights support group only added to this feeling....henceforth I shall attempt to explain why..... . . 🎗I love how, after about 5 minutes, a group of mostly strangers feel comfortable enough to speak openly about their innermost fears, and how everyone offers positive, calm and constructive support.. . 🎗everyone feels that they can voice their opinion and personal experiences, and know that no-one will take offence or be upset - because it is their experience. An experience that, to be honest, no one wants to have to have. . 🎗I love that our amazing Endometriosis nurse specialists volunteer their free time to help and support more people and their loved ones, going above and beyond their already strenuous and stressful duties...giving that little bit more because they know how much it is needed. . 🎗And mostly, in a safe, secure space, people feel a burden lift from them and better equipped to live with this disease, knowing that they can return whenever they’d like to, but also that lifelong friendships have been formed from our support groups. . . 💕I never sleep properly the night before; thinking will it all run smoothly, will people turn up, will people get what they came for......and I never sleep properly the night of the group as I want to hug each person, wrap them up and take this inhumane disease away from them.. . 💕Some people’s journeys are plain sailing, whilst others are outright cruel and horrific. We’ve come so far in the time that I’ve been volunteering, but there’s so far to go....and the group drives me on to do my best by it. . . 🎗If anyone is unsure if an @endometriosis.uk support group is for them then I really urge you to just attend one, just dip your toe and see what happens. Worst case you go home afterwards and have a cup of tea, best case your life might change for the better. . . #endometriosis #endo #endometriosisawareness #endobelly #chronicillness #chronicpain #invisibleillness #women #womenshealth #periodproblems

#Repost @healthiergee • • • • • • 20/05/19: The day we realised everything just got WAY harder! So our medical plan regarding pregnancy has always been a blurry one, because not only have I got quite severe PCOS related cysts but I also have damage from a twisted Fallopian tube and my body struggles to ovulate monthly.. but we had a plan. Today, my BMI needed to be a certain number in order to start femara, a ovulating inducing medication, and although my BMI was BELOW what it needed to be, we were told that it was no longer an option for us and the only route we have now is ICSI assisted IVF. I won’t get into specifics of how or why, because to be honest, I’m still processing it all and it’s not just my story to tell anymore, but now my BMI needs to be even lower to get funded and rather than the 3 tries I got originally, I will now get ONE try funded. My chance of it working the first time is currently LOW, My chance of it working and the pregnancy being rejected by my body is HIGH. The only positive point is, I will have no chance of ectopic pregnancy and a low chance of any further damage to my tubes.. I will be spending the next few weeks getting my body and mind prepped for the coming weeks/months of medication, injections, scans and scares. I will lose the weight, I will take care of my body and my mind and I will hit the ground running and not take no for answer! This next chapter is going to be a rough one, I have no false expectations of how it might play out and I know more than anyone, life isn’t a fairy tale and health isn’t straight forward but I am determined to give this my all! I am far too young to take this laying down! 💪🏼 watch this space! • • • #ivf #icsi #icsijourney #ivfjourney #ivfsupport #ivfcommunity #infertilityquotes #infertilityawareness #infertilitysucks #infertileproblems #ivficsi #pcos #polycysticovariansyndrome #polycysticovaries #chronicillness #autoimmunedisease #blogger #blogging #weightlossjourney #healthylifestyle #qotd #ttc #ttccommunity #ttcjourney #slimmingworld #keto #blog

I came across these pictures as I was going through old school papers and files. These pictures were taken before his very first surgery/biopsy. Before the diagnosis when everything was still a mystery and we were in great denial. His face was so full of life..plump and healthy!! Everytime we come across old pictures we tell each other, look how he used to look like"..now we scroll away. His deteriorated liver now leaves him severely jaundiced, very skinny and unable to grow and gain weight. He has been the same size and weight for 4 years. Some fat soluble vitamins are completely depleted from his body, some are undetectable in the blood. The liver is enlarged and hard as well and pushes on the surrounding organs. Up till today #primarysclerosingcholangitis has no cure ..except a liver transplant. What we dreaded and fought so hard to avoid, we are now looking forward to!!

@psoinspiring

Reposted from @redsilvermountains I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS and am waiting to go back to Rheumatology to see if I have Psoriatic Arthritis. PCOS leads to weight gain which is hard to budge, but one of the best things to do to relieve symptoms is exercise. However, this is a struggle when you have chronic joint pain. So I decided late last night when I couldn't switch off to try and do something to help keep me moving as well as raising money for a charity close to my heart - @psoriasisuk I've decided to do Steptember (which I researched and is a thing in Australia and America) with my goal being to do 10,000 steps every day in September. I'm mostly doing it for my own health but it would be great if people would also sponsor me to keep me motivated and to raise money so more funding can go towards research for Psoriatic Disease. If this goes well then I'll be attempting Red January again in 2020.

A tip for anyone suffering from #insomnia or #painsomnia! . When my mind is going bonkers, #anxiety, or my body feels no shame, #chronicillness, and I can’t fall asleep there is one trick I use to reset my brain. . When #medications, #heatingpads, nor #meditation help me out. I turn my frown upside down and put my head on the foot end of the bed. It’s my most successful trick! . . Q: what do you do when you suffer from #sleeplessness?

I've recently been diagnosed with PCOS and am waiting to go back to Rheumatology to see if I have Psoriatic Arthritis. PCOS leads to weight gain which is hard to budge, but one of the best things to do to relieve symptoms is exercise. However, this is a struggle when you have chronic joint pain. So I decided late last night when I couldn't switch off to try and do something to help keep me moving as well as raising money for a charity close to my heart - @psoriasisuk I've decided to do Steptember (which I researched and is a thing in Australia and America) with my goal being to do 10,000 steps every day in September. I'm mostly doing it for my own health but it would be great if people would also sponsor me to keep me motivated and to raise money so more funding can go towards research for Psoriatic Disease. If this goes well then I'll be attempting Red January again in 2020.

DOCTOR'S OFFICE INACCESSIBILITY ♿ I mean, who doesn't wanna try getting up an impossibly steep ramp, fail, and go flying out into traffic??!? 🙋‍♀️ K but for real...I've dealt w/ this for 9yrs bc they're the only office under 1.5hrs away authorized to prescribe a medication I need. But, my dudes. This. Needs. Attention. . To start, it's wayyy too steep. I *cannot* do it myself. And even if I was feeling hella buff, the risk of slipping and flying down into a car, tree, or THE ROAD is nottt worth it. My mom -- who's a very strong 56yo lady -- has struggled to push me up since she was in her 40s. And I'm a lightweight, w/ a light chair. While the photos don't really do it justice, it's so steep that if she forgets and wears open-backed shoes, she steps right out of them. Yeah. Thennn! Once you climb Everest, there's a hugeee Old Building™️ threshold at the door. Only THIS YEAR did they finally add a mini rubber ramp to clear it. Try doing that, w/o automatic doors, if you CAN'T stand for even a second like I can. Yeah, idk how they do it. . And here's the thing. I'm not the only disabled person bc it's a DOCTOR'S OFFICE. It's also a PCP to countless elderly folks in uber rural PA. The dr and staff are also almost all over 60, so if an older couple needed help getting in, it's not even like some young, strapping RN comes out to help (like most inaccessible places try to do to mask their lack of access🙄🙄). . But that's not all! This is the only disabled pkg space on the street. There's another tree blocking a passenger door. And when it snows? Forget your life. Someone else in the spot? Tough luck. There ARE other ♿ spaces for this office, but where? Why, they're out back! How do you get to the office from down there??? Up a tiny, winding, broken-stoned, FOOT PATH that has 2 sets of steps and is so steep it's clumsy for abled bodies!! And I know bc I did it when I my legs were fine back when I first got here. (See Pic 4; you'd DIE if you could see the broken MESS that exists after that drop-off) . But this is just the reality of Life While Disabled. This one cracks me tf up tho bc it's SOO bad I had to finally share. But drs and hospitals?! Git yer sht together!

If you haven’t already seen this movie, DO IT!! First of all...how in the world in Clint Eastwood 89yo???? That just doesn’t seem real to me at all. 89. How have that many years gone by for him? It makes you look at your own life. What have you done with it? Are you happy? Have you loved everyone with your whole heart? At least those that deserve your love? Time keeps going by faster and faster. I feel like I’m on a runaway train and I can’t stop it. But I need it to slow down. NOW. I want to get off at many stops along the way. I need my train to slow the fuck down. I still have so much left to do. Even with this CRPS! Slow down your train people! Because before you know it, you’ll be pulling into the train station at the end of the line and that’s it. Your ride is over. Make it the best ride of your life. And the most important thing of all, make music a part of your life. It can help to heal you and it can heal almost anything. Music is the best part of the train ride. And learn the words and sing out loud!!! (See previous post). 🎶💜🦋💜🎶 #TheMule #ClintEastwood #LifeGoals #StopToSmellTheRoses #CRPS #crpsstrong #crpsawareness #crpswarrior #invisiblepain #invisibleillness #chronicpain #chronicillness #musicislife

I still have days where I have to lay and rest after a shower. It sucks, but, I’m trying my hardest to focus on the strides forward I’ve made since I got sick in 2017. I’ve gained all my weight back, and I’m fighting my own demons on food addiction. It’s really been a struggle for me. #spoonie #dysautonomia #lupusflare #foodaddiction #weightlossjourney #chronicillness #addictionrecovery #invisibleillness #spoonielife

@irony_and_illnesses

Just wanted to say, I am fine. I cry sometimes because of the situation, I sometimes dwell in it. But I am fine, I realize how good life is, with or without illness. I realize how beautiful people are. I see the beauty in lots of things. Funny how you can feel two feelings at the same time. Recognize that?

When I complain to my friends and family and they say “I’m sure you don’t look as bloated as you think” 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️😭 Finding something to wear to work is so hard, especially when it’s too warm to wear a big baggy jumper! #endobelly #IBS #flare #health #chronicpain #bloated #pain #chronicillness #endo #chronicpelvicpain #health #mentalhealth #spoonie #OCD #BDD #edrecovery #edawareness

Having long walks means that sometimes you have to prevent low blood sugar. My favourite way to do that is trying different goodies from local bakeries. I do that every time I'm visiting a new city, and I find that eating local food is the best way to know the place better. . So far in Iceland I tried: - Ástarpungur, little balls with raisins; - Kleinur, my favourite fried pastries (I love also the chocolate version); - Bread with cheese and poppy seeds, you can find it in every bakery but I don't know if it's typical of Iceland. . For a low carb snack I am having a lot of Skyr, a soft cheese that you can find everywhere (not so easy to find plastic free!). It's eaten as dessert and it's low in carbs... And it's good. The perfect combination 🍧. . . #ibringmyownbottle #t1d #t1dlookslikeme #chronicillness #insulin #womenwithchronicillness #type1diabetes #blogger #iceland #simplicity #travel #skyr #loveislove .

Just because you don't see what someone is dealing with, doesn't make it less true. I work an 8 hour shift and the most people see is me going to the bathroom or on a break. What they don't know is I take the time to relieve some fatigue. Yes I bathroom while in the bathroom! But for moment after I literally have to stop and slow down. This was not an intentional video I took today. I wanted to show the odd way I stuck myself so I wasn't in pain. I put the phone done for a moment, as fiddling with it took a bit out of me. This is when the fatigue hits me completely, most of the time I feel it coming on. I get to exhausted to keep my eyes open let alone sit up. I feel like sleeping right away. It's not a life friendly thing, it hits me alot during a flare of up of my symptoms. The hematuria might cause anemia, which makes this even worss. It's a feeling to me that my body is giving up.

A little bit of diaphragm love! Just recorded a sequence for releasing tension through the diaphragm, shoulders and neck. I find these postures particularly valuable after an asthma attack, prolonged coughing or general stiffness through the shoulders/chest.

Nightmare, nightmare, make me scream, wrapped your thoughts around my neck, choking me, losing oxygen, gotta wake up, but I can't see. Heart starts beating faster than, the thoughts come in, how could I make this end. Little girl, little girl, I'm sorry I couldn't settle enough to go out and play, waved to you through the window every day, wanting you to stay, making you promises i couldn't keep, turning grey now, still trying to figure you out, meanings taken too long, wish the day gone, I won't sing along, the sound it kills me. #mentalmakeup #agoraphobia #depression #nightmares #dissociativeidentitydisorder #writingcommunity #writer #poetry #poet #wordsmith #empath #haunted #uplate #chronicillness #loner #spiritual #meditation #nosleep #mentalhealthblogger #suicidesurviver
