I die laughing when people I never expected to cuss, do. Then I laugh a whole lot more because I shouldn't be surprised but I am, every single time.⠀
I honestly forget that behind all the smiles and perfectly posed family portraits is a real person. I don't mean like 'oh my gosh she's real!', I mean like 'Oh my gaaa! Sister just dropped the F bomb and didn't bat an eye.'⠀
That shirt, 'drop the F bomb kind of mom', that's me. I cuss like a sailor that's had too much rum and I don't even drink. 🤣⠀
This reminds me of my grandma, cutest little old lady, went to church every Sunday. She would get so mad at my dad and it was like the word was right there on the tip of her tongue but Grandma was strong and cussing wasn't who she was.⠀
Maybe a few times. What mom hasn't let out 'damnit' every now and then? I think it takes a lot of self control not to cuss, espically if you believe they are 'bad words'. I'm more of a free spirit, words are words; sometimes shit happens and you really have to laugh at that.
Do you ever feel like there are so many things pulling you in a million different directions? I often find myself torn between helping others I care about and myself and I usually always choose the former. In order to help others, you must choose to help yourself when you need to take the time to pamper or for self-care. I find when dealing with mental illness, those voices can be overpowering and make you feel like you are not worth taking care of. However, that is a lie, and that in itself is proof enough that you ARE worth it and need to take better care of yourself. Find things that YOU love to do, eat, listen to, and surround yourself with those things and people that build you up, rather than tear you down. 🤗🤩🙏 #selflove #pamper #worthit #unicorns #depression #mentalillness #music #healing #healyourself #putyourselffirst
I’m not perfect, I never claimed to be! I’m just me. A small town guy just living the average day to day life. Like the rest of you, my instagram has you fooled, depression is real, the loss of self confidence and self worth. Meanwhile staying in my house never leaving, bc the world is mean and cruel. You got the wrong guy bc I’m unique. My pictures are filtered and scalp for a perfection I will never be. So I’m just going to get grasp of me. The old me wouldn’t of cared. I’m human! From pics can you tell I struggle with #mentalillness
? Probably not. I’m just a kid from oneida, that has continually tried to grow, I may have had a setback but I always push forward. Thank you to the friends that have been there for me thru these times. I love you all that show me love xoxo
This week, our guest host is trauma therapist Aundi Kolber! She talks about how grief is the bedrock of mental health, why smaller traumas & losses are still so important, what it means to really feel our feelings, and how learning how to respond honestly to smaller day-to-day moments sets the stage for encountering larger events.
One of the things I hate the most is being overwhelmed, being overwhelmed over nothing is even worse. I know it's gonna be a rough day when I wake up feeling like I can't get out of bed without having a panic attack like today. It seems like it happens way to often and it's not like I have a whole lot to be overwhelmed about, but sometimes the simple steps of getting up and waking up for the day is like climbing a steep hill, and I'm not even good at climbing the little ones
On days like this I try to remind myself that no one is rushing me. I have no expectations for the day so I should be able to relax, right? So just light a candle, put on some good music or tv and take out my paints and lose myself in the paper for a while and hope that the feeling of being rushed starts to fade. It usually doesn't but sometimes I can get a few things done and feel a little better; I have to remind myself to be gentle and take things slow on days like today
Weed usually saves the day

This disorder is a very interesting one in which is overrepresented in the prison system. I often make bold statements about people with the extreme version of this disorder (Psychopathy). There is a legitimate reason for this as these individuals have no remorse and lack the ability to empathize with others. These people are like Narcissists but on steroids. They will lie, steal, cheat, and manipulate others to do what they want. They are also very aggressive and irritable. There is also a childhood version of this which is called conduct disorder. Now I did suffer from a lot of the symptoms of conduct disorder, however I'm one of the 50% of kids who didn't develop Antisoc. Its also worth noting many of these kids have been diagnosed with ADHD as well (Myself included). Aside from the main symptoms of the adult version, one key sign is torturing animals and tormenting siblings. At most half of kids with conduct disorders grow up with this disorder. Many studies have shown that the brain of Psychopaths differ from normal people's because the part of the brain responsible for complex positive emotions is impaired, which explains their lack of empathy for others. People with this disorder are often caught up with the law and commit a miriad of crimes and suffer from substance abuse. At most 50% of prison system is full of these people. They also tend to throw caution to the wind and show a reduced feeling for fear. These people have a wide range of outcomes and the best case scenario is...well a heartless CEO or a complete asshole to a sadistic serial killer. Now its very important to look for these signs to avoid these people as soon as possible for it can save your life.

I still sleep with a stuffed animal as a crutch since i get really paranoid at night.
It’s fine to have stuffed animals at any age! They’re meant to be life long friends.

PSA: your body image does not determine how much you are allowed to eat. Bloating does not necessarily mean you have eaten too much! It just means you are finally digesting your food! It’s really hard to disconnect our relationship with our bodies and our relationship with our food. It’s something I’m still working on. I am allowed to eat whatever I want, even if I am at ends with my body. •
Stay Strong 💪🏼🥡

So that person in that photo, just right up above ☝🏽 had been battling depression and an eating disorder for already a decade..... and no one knew 🤷🏽♀️ obviously because I didn’t want to bring anyone else down around me BUT LIKE, whaaaaat? Mind you, this photo was taken last summer as I’m not enjoying photos of myself lately; but that’s besides the point ❌ •
People who suffer with mental illness are amazing actors, & mostly not by choice 🙇🏽♀️ •
1️⃣▶️ Depression distort the way your mind works. How your thought process is and when untreated, can turn toxic (suicidal thoughts/self harm). •
2️⃣▶️ Chronic pain can be another symptom of depression. It affects your body mentality and physically. •
3️⃣▶️ Depression makes it hard to give. It’s very difficult to think of others, when you’re completely consumed by a cloud of sadness. Some look at this is being selfish, but when you have so much pain/feel so much pain, what else will you think about? •
4️⃣▶️ Depression has different triggers for different people. Depression does not look the same in everyone suffering. •
5️⃣▶️ Once depression is recognized, help can make a difference for 80% of people who are affected. •
I hid my feelings for years and years until it was “almost too late.” ❌ PLEASEEEEEE, if you are feeling alone or have symptoms of any mental illness; IT IS NOT STUPID to get help. IT IS NEEDED ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ •

Being seen....REALLY being seen. It’s a weird concept. When we ask, “how are you?” Are we really expecting the other person to answer? Or do we hope they will answer, “fine” and we both can continue on with our days? When I describe my OCD to strangers or new friends, it breaks my heart when they brush it off or seem to not care to learn about it. On the contrary, it means the world to me when people take the time to get to know me and to learn about OCD. It makes me feel seen, heard, and valued. You see, we don’t have to be fighting the same battles to really see and know one another. We all experience the same human emotions: sadness, fear, anger, happiness, etc. What might happen if we all slowed down for a minute or two and intentionally asked someone how they’re doing, REALLY wanting to hear the answer? What might happen if we set down our phones and looked around at the people passing by, noticing the pain and hurt etched into each line on their faces? What might happen if we stopped to let someone know that they matter and they’re loved? 💗 •

TW!: Mention of food and vomiting
[(ID) Slide one: tumblr posts by toastyhat on a red and white polka dot background that reads "if your stomachs sensitive because of anxiety, by all means spread out the food you eat over the course of the day instead of having large meals, just don't... not eat. You will go into hypoglycemic shock and that will suck.
By the way, symptoms include:
• Nervousness or anxiety
• Sweating, chills and clamminess
• Irritability or impatience
• Confusion, including delirium
• Rapid/fast heartbeat
• Lightheadedness or dizziness
• Hunger and nausea
(Because of the nausea, eating might not feel like the thing to do at first. I'd suggest drinking a coke or something.)
Slide two: Reply by foolsdiamond that reads "I've dealt with sugar crashes before and I've collapsed and whited out. I've had friends do it too. If you think you're going into hypoglycemic shock, and if there's anyone else near by, tell them you think it's happening, even if you're not prone or it's never happened before. If you're alone, make your way slowly to the kitchen/wherever you have food/drinks. The standard rule is to take in 15oz of a surgery drink (orange juice and soda -not diet- are the best) and wait 15 minutes to see if it's over, then keep doing that until your sugar is stabilized. Then you can eat. If you think you're able to collapse, especially if you start to feel dizzy, sit down and lay down or lean against something. Don't risk injury, it's better to pass out while you're laying down than it is to collapse and hurt yourself."
Toastyhat replies "*points at this more educated person*"
Otaku-sugar replies "if you are having trouble eating please keep in mind the BRATY diet. Bananas, rice, Apple sauce, toast, and (sometimes) yogurt. These foods have been shown to be harder to throw up. By no means should this be the primary diet, but this can assist in the between times when it's harder to keep things down."]

Xenoestrogens - what are they? how to avoid them?
Unfortunately we live in a society that’s all about convenience and with that comes the abundant use of plastic 😢 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Besides the highly important environmental factor, plastics are terrible for our own health! They contain xenoestrogens which enter the body and increase the total amount of estrogen resulting in estrogen dominance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This can lead to symptoms such as constipation, mood issues, weight gain (particularly around the hips), sore breasts, low libido, bloating, headaches, hair loss, sluggish metabolism, fatigue, foggy thinking, trouble sleeping, PMS... the list goes on 👎🏻👎🏻
Soft plastics are treated with phthalates which increase their flexibility. However when heated these contain some of the highest xenoestrogen levels💥💥
Additionally, many cosmetic companies use parabens in their products as preservatives which are xenoestrogens that enter the skin and go directly to our tissues without passing through any liver detoxification!! That means they’re 100% absorbed 😫 What can you do? Use glass to store food especially when heating up and start becoming conscious of the products you’re putting on your skin! 💕💕💕
"That feeling when you wish you could cry to release some of the deep sadness you’re feeling but you are actually completely numb and incapable of forming tears, so you just have to sit and wait for the feeling to pass without feeling any release or comfort whatsoever". ~ #depression #mentalillness #cry #numb #sadness #detatchment #comfort
With all that has overwhelmed me lately, I now chose to let the grace of God overwhelm me more. Grace, which is unmerited favor, will remind me that no matter what happens, I will be okay. And not because everything will be perfect, but because in the worst of it, I can still worship. I can still love others and give all I have for Him, knowing none of it is in vain. Sure, things aren’t the way I thought they would be, but God is still good. He is still working in so many ways I cannot yet see.
I am choosing to make the brave decision to trust that His grace is sufficient. I am choosing to believe with all my heart that what He gives me will be more than enough. Even if there are others doubting me, and even if I am doubting myself, it is still worth it to put my hope and trust in Him and no one else.
And He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness." - 2 Corinthians 12:9

The word 'GRACE' (CHEN in Hebrew, CHARIS in Greek), as it is used in the scriptures, literally means 'favour', to bend or stoop in kindness to another as a superior to an inferior...His GRACE has been termed 'Unearned kindness' but it is more than an attitude of favour or mercy.
💙"GOD IS LOVE", so His GRACE for us is a demonstration of LOVE, for "GOD IS LOVE"
📖"We know how much God loves us, and we have put our trust in His love. God is love, and all who live in love live in God, and God lives in them."
[1 John 4:16 NLT]

It’s Talk Tuesdays! How are you guys feeling? We rarely check in with followers through this campaign, and we apologize BUT how are YOU guys doing?!! Let us know below! .
Today’s Feature: Thomas Pendleton
Diagnosis: Anxiety and Depression
Age of Onset/Date of Diagnosis: Unknown, refused to accept it for some time. .
Preferred Method of Treatment: Self Care, I take the best care of myself. Don’t need the judgement, people always make me feel shameful. .
How were you treated by others post diagnosis? People have always treated me differently and I’ve very rarely felt accepted in my family. I’ve always felt shameful. Hence why I chose the picture to be featured. I have very few friends whom I speak to and that includes my parents .
Any advice for those living with Mental Illness? Be yourself! Let go of anyone who won’t accept you for who and what you are! .

just a reminder that social media only depicts what a person wants you to see in their life. life is more than just pretty photoshoots laying in the sun with some daisies. i may appear confident and put together but i have my moments. i am human. so is every other user on instagram. there’s many sides to a person. i personally use social media for creativity and as a creative outlet. this doesn’t include my mental illness side, scientific interests, or elephant obsession. instagram is just one lense of perspective, in reality there’s millions. so just remember not to judge people or have a distinct idea of what someone’s like based on social media cause their page really doesn’t tell their story. also, i never post selfies so here’s the first :)
