Why I have been posting my Pain diary is really about starting a conversation about chronic illness😀😀😀😀😀. I have been lucky in many ways one being that became sick when I was young so I have had years to shape my lifestyle around my illness. I did not have to morn the loss of a career or hobbies and my identity has always been one of a “sick” person. 😩😩😩😩😩😩😩I see friends who have recently become chronically ill being rejected by there friends and even family for the most ablest reasons. 😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓😓Not everyone gets better. Complaining about pain & how that’s changed your day/life is not asking/manipulating people for help. Canceling plans last minute is illness not neglect and depending on what’s wrong it could be fine for you to go to them but they maybe too scared to ask so ask them. Chronic pain impacts memory they don’t mean to forget you, your friendship, plans or time together just try to remind and remember for them. Never push a stranger. Never spray a chemical (perfume, sunscreen, etc) or eat common allergies in inclosed public spaces or in a crowed outdoor area if people are with in 5meters. If someone says they are allergic or have autoimmune disorder do not assume what they can or can not be exposed to and if you don’t understand/know just say that. 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔 I only what people to see how chronic pain effects people. We do not need pity just your understanding. #chronicillness #chronicpain #startaconversation #memoryissues #stigma #fightstigma #openup

I really wish people would stop acting like living with a mental illness isn’t hard. Some people’s illnesses effect them so much they can’t get out of bed. Some people’s illnesses turn into something physical, like for me I’ve had a stomach ulcer over anxiety and my stomach problems get progressively worse until I can’t eat. Please don’t put a scale of how bad an illness has to be for it to be acknowledged. ~🍑
Happy birthday to this cutie/hero. He’s the best and turns 27 today (the age I was when we started dating 😂). It’s ironic that his birthday falls on the shortest day of the year because, to me, it always feels like the longest. (He’s not on Insta so he’ll never know what a good burn that is 🔥😎😇). #birthday #birthdayboy #boyfriend #cutie #fightstigma #burn #nofilter #solstice #wintersolstice #wintersolstice2018
LB- “Are you and angel?” Me- “what?” LB- “My mom told me that those who have marked wrist are angels. Me- “I’m not an angel.” LB- “Of course you are. Mum said that only angels harm themselves because they don’t like life on Earth. This world is destroying them so they try to return to heaven again. They are too sensitive to the pain of others and their own.” Me- “You know, your mum is very wise.” LB- “Thank you. She’s also an angel but she has already returned home.” #angel #brokenangel #selfharn #selfharm #suicideawareness #suicide #suïcidalthoughts #cutwrist #cutters #lifeonearth #hatelife #destroying #destroyed #heaven #returnhome #sensitive #sensitivity #pain #painful #cantcope #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #fightstigma #fightthestigma

Lived to see another day. Awakened to joy in the morning. I am loved, and have amazing people in my life. I am grateful for everything God is doing, has done, and is about to do.

This photo is just a way of stating that even though I may not live the struggles of others, I've lived with my own. I understand the best I can about what others deal with, and with empathy as well, I will do the best I can to support any friend or any human struggling with chronic illness, pain, and beyond. These words ring as true as any can: You are not alone. #chronicillness #ostomy #ostomate #beanally #fightstigma #helphumanity

Pain diary. My medication actually worked. Cyclical vomiting syndrome was something I feared I would not find treatment options for. Semetil, weed and Milan-almotriptan. First triptan that has worked. Only recently got cleared by my neurologist to used certain triptan with basilar migraines. Still feel awful but not puking is what counts lol. #paindiary #neurologicaldisorder #cyclicalvomitingsyndrome #basilarmigraines #migrainwithbrainstemaura #medicalmarijuana #fightstigma

I shadowed a morning bus route for work. The man, a seventy something ex (though not according to him) marine was the driver. He was nice but he asked about my scars and when I said I used to cut to deal with a rough childhood, he boldly stated, "so you're a cutter." NO. I am NOT, nor have I ever been, a cutter. I am a human and to take away my identity is the reason I hate people and have come to view myself as something else. I have cut and now I have scars from when I used to cut, but I am not, nor have I ever, been a cutter. The same with these adults I serve now. Society is awful at seeing them as their disability. They are not. They are humans. It kills me so badly. And later he exclaimed to me "damn girl, you really cut yourself up. I would have beat your ass." Society, I am not the one with a disability; you are and this horrible sickened mindset. I don't know my place in this world.
Pain diary. Having a cyclical vomiting episode. Hopefully it doesn’t last long. New pills to try maybe they will work this time. #cyclicalvomitingsyndrome #puking #chronicillness #fightstigma #neurologicaldisorder

I struggle with myself a lot. When I go days without posting, I withdraw in other areas too. I've been fortunate enough to be accepted into a therapy program that will hopefully help me shift the way I see myself on my bad days, and was stunned and moved to tears by the incredible support that I received from my teachers when I informed them that I'd be missing a day a week of school for the rest of the year, in order to take care of my health. I really hope that I can find the same support and understanding here that I do there. 😍 Here's some ~aesthetic~ lightening bolts bc they are my current mood. 😥

Finally plucked up the courage to post my second YouTube video, the response from my first video was so mind blowing - I can express how much I appreciate all of you. Thank you for the support, it was such a rough time in my life, and I love that a lot of you reached out to my mum too. Sometimes people are so focused on the person going through it, we forget that families are also affected by it too. This video tells a story of what happened after that video, there’s loads I wanna share, and loads I wanna post on my YouTube so I’m excited I finally decided to go for it. Please just like the video before, share with everyone, re post, comment, like but most importantly click on the link in my bio and watch for yourself. So many people are hopeless and in a dark place, and if I can find the light in the darkness I know so can everyone else. Spread the word, share the video❤️ I’m on a mission to change the world. https://youtu.be/_2mpLjiN0Qg #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #changementalhealth #fightstigma #bpd #myjourney #mystory #lifestyle #blog #health #positivevibes #pma #suicideprevention #positivity #l4l #likeforlike #like4like #likesforlikes #f4f #follow4follow #followforfollow #mentalhealthadvocate

Choosing recovery is a daily thing. Every day I have to choose to take my meds. Every day I have to choose to use my coping skills. Every day I have to choose to do my therapy homework. Every day I have to choose not to use disordered eating behaviors. Every day I have to choose to exercise because it improves my mood. Choices that come naturally to some people are far from it for me. However, I’ve had a taste of how good it feels to be happy and leaving this all behind. I now know recovery is possible for me, and every day it is up to me to make the difficult choices so I can keep moving forward.

#Repost from @namicommunicate - since June 11 to June 17 is #menshealthweek , CareLink wanted to highlight this incredible story. Check it out: • • “Here is some #Wisdom from an Army veteran. ➡️ —— “Not all battle scars are visible. To all my fellow veterans, I encourage you to reach out for support if you face challenges. You’re not alone, there are so many friends, family members, and counselors that are here to support you and help you manage those challenges. Mental health is so important to me, because I know how hard it can be to find the strength and courage to reach out. I’ve been both on the receiving and providing side of support, and I want you to know it works! Visit @veteransmtc for resources and tools not only to support yourself, but to support your battle buddies.” • • Remember, you are not alone and help is available. Never be afraid to reach out when you need help.

Sometimes mental health care can be a little unbalanced, just as mental illness can make us feel unbalanced. I’ve had a lot of bad experiences with it, as well as a lot of good. #inpatient may have unfortunately been the worst. I was made to feel further isolated and imprisoned than I already did. Most of the medical staff lacked any kind of empathy or emotional support (I literally got yelled at for being unable to get out of bed or eat, which is how I ended up there in the first place.) At least, this was my experience. Feel free to share your stories, let’s start a dialogue. #bipolartist #artastherapy #bipolarart #stigmafree #fightstigma #psychiatric #collageart #visualjournal #artjournal
