My obsessive compulsive disorders have begun to delve beyond ritualistic behaviors. I’ve been very triggered in my mental health and I’m just trying to find my center.💕🌻 #BPD #OCD #MentalHealth #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #obsessivecompulsivedisorder
I started practicing when I was housebound almost 8 years ago and I had no idea that it would save my life. I’m really excited to present my 6-week series starting May 1st! I will be discussing the holistic practices that help me cope with and manage my mental illnesses. This series is for you! Please feel free to reach out to me with questions, concerns or requests. #ocdawareness #meditation #trauma #ptsd #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocd #psychology #psychologytoday #yogateacher #healyourself #exposuretherapy #CBT #anxiety #anxietyattack #anxietydisorder #panicattacks #panicdisorder #eatingdisorderrecovery #ED #anorexia #treatment #soberlife #onedayatatime #sobriety #blog #suicideprevention

Shoesday Tuesday! 👠🌈 • Can you believe that none of these will be moving with me to Singapore? 😱 • Trying to live more minimally there. • Since my dad passed away, I’ve been trying to keep busy and distracted with planning Emeline’s birthday party and packing for Singapore. I want to escape now. I know my sorrow will follow me but I need to get away from LA and keep busy & moving. • This photo is a #tbt to when I used one side of Ethan’s old @ikeausa crib to display my heels. Works really well and looks clean & modern, like installation art. 😜 • • • • • #shoesdaytuesday #ikeahack #ikeahacks #ikeacrib #cribs #upcycle #upcycledfurniture #ikeahackers #shoedesign #mommybloggers #rainbows #trustintheuniverse #zarashoes #hmshoes #targetshoes #shoeworship #shoeporn #heelsaddict #shoeaddicted #modernart #microinfluencers #microinfluencer #shoeart #iloverainbows #organized #fashionmommy #interiordesign #artanddesign #obsessivecompulsivedisorder
We have been doing a lot of exercises and lessions in my partial hospitalization program and today was my first day participating in Art Therapy. I don't think I've honestly touched art supplies in over a decade, but I did find it insightful in may ways. First we were asked to draw our inner critic. Rather than drawing something with a face, as my peers did, I decided to draw an environment that makes me most difficult on myself, stressed, and where my anxiety is at it's highest. On the right we were asked to draw our inner hero. Again rather than faces, I thought of things. I love animals and spoil my cats. I miss having hobbies and fitness. Gaining over 40 pounds in two years has been very difficult and has made me very self conscious. But in the picture I drew what I thought I could use as tools and hobbies to help me better myself mentally. What would you have drawn? #dermatillomania #dermatillomaniarecovery #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #bipolar #schizophrenia #arttherapy #selflove #selfcare #acceptance #innerpeace #depression #anxiety
Part 2: In reality, I would like to start practicing self care and acceptance. I can't do that in my current situation. So tonight, I went to discuss this with two of the most important people in my life. I'd do anything for them and have always been incredibly thoughtful towards them.... My parents. I thought they would be displeased with my strategy, but willing to accept that I need to get help and that in doing this, I can take time to find a civil engineering job that best works to me all while bettering myself. However, that was not the case at all. Instead I was completely rejected by my parents and they compared me to my siblings demanding to know what's wrong with me because my siblings don't have the issues that I have. Another concern for them was money. They co-signed some student loans for me when I was an undergraduate student and I've never been late or missed a single payment, but my parents want those paid back like today. I have so much I need to do for grad school as I went awol for a feel weeks and that went to shit today. My parents are also angry because every single therapist and the nurse practitioner all think that this would be the healthiest thing I can do for myself at the moment. I'm displeased with met parents very deeply. They mean the world to me, but expect me to get better on my terms. Daily my mother asks if I'm cured and we all know that's not how mental health works. I feel rejected and like my parents failed me. What are your thoughts on my decisions? #dermatillomania #dermatillomaniarecovery #selflove #selfcare #anxiety #depression #mentalhealth #ocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #bipolar #schizophrenia #lifechanges #health #journeyformentalhealth
- Patience is key. Many survivors have a hard time remember everything that happened. With proper therapy, the pieces will come back together. Just let the memories come back on their own.

Daniel is the back-up punter for the Erie Hills Elephants. Which really means he’s the water boy. He spends football practice perfectly arranging water cups—and hoping no one notices. Actually, he spends most of his time hoping no one notices his strange habits—he calls them Zaps: avoiding writing the number four, for example, or flipping a light switch on and off dozens of times over. He hopes no one notices that he’s crazy, especially his best friend Max, and Raya, the prettiest girl in school. His life gets weirder when another girl at school, who is unkindly nicknamed Psycho Sara, notices him for the first time. She doesn’t just notice him: she seems to peer through him. Then Daniel gets a note: “I need your help,” it says, signed, Fellow Star Child—whatever that means. And suddenly Daniel, a total no one at school, is swept up in a mystery that might change everything for him. With great voice and grand adventure, this book is about feeling different and finding those who understand. #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #OCD #mentalhealthawareness #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #booksofig #readergram #teacherswhoread #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofinsta #teachersofig #iteachsixth #iteach456 #iteachtoo #iteachmiddle #iteachelamiddle #iteachmiddleschool
I write lists. I can't function until my lists are written every morning. 4 lists. They all say the same thing. I keep 2 planners, 4 calendars, and the calendar on my phone because if I don't, something will happen. I don't know what will happen, but something will, something bad. I obsess all day if I forget my earrings or a necklace. I check my alarms 3 times at night (and when I sleep through them and my routine gets thrown off, I obsess and am irritable all day... like today). I don't need to go further. OCD isn't just "oh this needs to be organized". If you're anal about organization and cleanliness, that *may* fall under the obsessive-compulsive personality disorder (OCPD), but even then, it's still probably not. #Repost @makedaisychains (@get_repost ) ・・・ A friend/work colleague reminded me today that I need to make something about #OCD (obsessive compulsive disorder) - a diagnosis that’s hidden and not really understood.

Some days you feel stuck and fed up, and that you think you shouldn’t play. But know this: you deserve to play, and to be calm, safe and happy. Believing this can be hard on those tough days. For me, I have to push OCD back. I am working it. And it’s not easy. But, seeing the rational in the irrational behind OCD is the key in being able to kick it. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealtheducation #awareness #playtime #puppylove #woodmansternecards #peace #calm #recoveryninja #mentalhealthwarriors #ocd #anxiety #depression #ptsd #eatingdisorders #bipolar #addiction #bpd #bdd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocdsucks #ocdisnotajoke #ocdisnotanadjective
Matthew Corbin suffers from severe obsessive-compulsive disorder. He hasn't been to school in weeks. His hands are cracked and bleeding from cleaning. He refuses to leave his bedroom. To pass the time, he observes his neighbors from his bedroom window, making mundane notes about their habits as they bustle about the cul-de-sac. When a toddler staying next door goes missing, it becomes apparent that Matthew was the last person to see him alive. Suddenly, Matthew finds himself at the center of a high-stakes mystery, and every one of his neighbors is a suspect. Matthew is the key to figuring out what happened and potentially saving a child's life, but is he able to do so if it means exposing his own secrets, and stepping out from the safety of his home? #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #OCD #mentalhealthawareness #booksofinstagram #booksofinsta #booksofig #readergram #teacherswhoread #teachersfollowteachers #teachersofinstagram #teachersofinsta #teachersofig #iteachsixth #iteach456 #iteachtoo #iteachmiddle #iteachelamiddle #iteachmiddleschool

I put on the tight dress because the days of letting my body image dictate my wardrobe choices are over. 👗 I got ready and left the apartment because the days of isolating myself from the world are over. 🛌 I ate the sushi because the days of saying “no” to date nights or sticking with just a drink are behind me. 🍣 I made it through the meal without falling apart because the days of feeling completely alone with my thoughts are over. 👫And when I got home and I felt overly full and anxious, I sat with my discomfort because the days of numbing myself with a knife or a pill are over. 🔪 Unfortunately, so are my days in Tally with this lover because he’s headed to Orlando in only a few short weeks! 🍊
Day 3 of random throat swelling and breathing problems. Also dizzy/heartbeat things. Ducking ice and benadryl is helping. Also prednisone. I'm so frustrated and tired and I want to get relief.

You are not your thoughts. I am not my thoughts. Weird/scary/odd thoughts pop into everyone’s minds from time to time, whether or not we have OCD. The difference is that the OCD brain will attach meaning to these thoughts which can then tempt us to define ourselves by the types of things our brain will come up with. . . Thoughts can be powerful in terms of motivating us to make change, but they are not powerful enough to make the changes for us. That’s where our behavior steps in- to create actual change. . . When we have thoughts that make us feel like we’re bad/crazy/a monster, this doesn’t make it so. If OCD was telling us the truth and our thoughts were really that powerful, we could harness our power for good and defeat all hate and sickness in the world. But we can’t, unfortunately, because our thoughts are not magical. . . Nice try, OCD... . . #ocd #harmocd #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #pureocd #intrusivethoughts #ocdrecovery #ocdawareness #anxiety #anxietyrecovery #thereishope #magicalthinking #therapy #exposureresponseprevention #mindfulness #thoughtsarejustthoughts

Excuse the weird picture 😂 but is it weird that this blanket actually makes me feel safe. It has no special features apart from it has glow in the dark unicorns on it. When I wrap myself in it it makes me feel ok and safe and special. Philly (the 3ft tall soft toy monkey) has this effect as well. Is this weird or does anyone else have toys or blankets or stuff that make their anxiety go and make them feel safe. Please let me know 💕 Keep fighting, stay strong! Love you all 💗
Now that I’ve temporarily withdrawn from university I can do new things like let my hair dry naturally 💁🏻‍♀️ • • I’m planning on going back next January and keeping my grades from the autumn semester. I just can’t deal with it right now so instead I can focus on getting as well as I can before going back so everything seems less overwhelming. It would be great if they could put me on the adhd medication before I go back so I might have a chance of doings the necessary amount of work. After the strikes I just had no idea what I was doing or where I should start so I’ve been in a spiral of stress and now I can go and be away from it for a while ☺️☺️☺️ • • • • #pots #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #eds #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pcos #polycysticovariansyndrome #celiacdisease #celiac #aspergers #dysautonomia #tachycardia #ocd #bingeeatingdisorder #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #chronicpain #chronicfatigue #chronicillness #invisibleillness #depression #anxiety #spoonie #zebra #warrior #chronicallyill #chronicillnesswarrior #spooniecommunity #spoonielife #spoonieproblems #glutenfree

Yesterday’s outfit. I’m terrible at getting good pictures, I really need to play around with my iPhone more. I went out because I was pretty sure I could. I need to do that more so I can work on desensitizing myself. The more successful small errands I can run, the better! I know I’ve been having an Up Week and that it can swing back down at any moment, so I’m taking full advantage of it. I added another alarm on my phone: at 11am it says “exercise and bathe.” For some reason it’s working. I get up, I do what I can, then if I need to go back to bed I do. Also, when I got home I took off the accessories, switched the top for a t-shirt, and put on my slippers. No reason to be glam while making jewelry. . #ootd #disabledandcute #gothbutkindainapinupway #chronicallyill #chronicillness #dysautonomia #potsyndrome #posturalorthostatictachycardiasyndrome #ptsd #agoraphobia #agoraphobic #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocd #fibromyalgia #disabledlife #sharingkillsshame

I’ve almost made it home, flew back to the uk yesterday but travelling to home today. Isn’t the clear sky in the hills beautiful! - I barely did any blogging about my experience during the training. Mainly because I was utterly exhausted most of the time and my internet access. - I’m not sure how I feel being back, not in a negative way but feeling kind of nothing. However I’m not at home yet so who knows what will happen. - I can’t really say what I’ve come back with from the training, perhaps that I can socialise at times but I can also withdraw and be in solitude. Accepting this as a part of my personality and that it’s not something that needs to be changed or fixed. It’s okay for me to want to spend time in isolation and in solitude when I feel like, that’s just me. . - Training was quite very different since the first time, I’m not sure what I make of that just yet. I’m doing well with the commute, the feeling of anxiety was very quiet in comparison to before, so that is something. Hopefully I can keep it up when I’m back home and start to go out more. - I miss creating and art, I’m looking forward to going to back to being able to create more. . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #ocdawareness #ocdrecovery #panicattack #recoveryquotes #cptsd #journal #lbloggersuk #depression #chronicillness #anxietyrecovery #thegirlgang #bpd #anxious #gad #lbloggersuk #anxietyhelp #intrusivethoughts #selfcare #mentalhealthsupport #selfhelp #mentalhealthblogger #browngirlbloggers #chronicallyill #britishasian #invisibleillness #chronicillness #butyoudontlooksick #
Try it, it's very scary so make sure you have a good support system to help you through it. I did this a couple times with a few different therapists, I think it's supposed to help you get comfortable with those worst case scenarios that always vividly go through an OCD victim's mind. #ocdmemes #ocd #anxiety #anxietymemes #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmemes #meme #memes #exposure #obsessions #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #obsessivecompulsive #fear #fears #imaginalscript #erp #mentallyill #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentaldisorder #ocdawareness #anxietydisorder

hello this is actually a vent post disguised as a roughly made graph
honestly w wudu it's like it's so similar to how an ocd ritual would be & you have no do steps three times not more or less than that so it's so easy to fall into a cycle where if i don't feel satisfied with a step i have to repeat it all over again & how if i lose count or get paranoid i lost count i have to repeat it all again it's so time consuming and exhausting tbh
exams obviously stress me out which causes my ocd to flare up which causes me anxiety & stress which leads to more ocd which leads to stress which leads to ocd which leads to stress which leads to ocd which leads to stress which leads to ocd which leads to-

Early as was some b&j😍 For lunch I had thai take away and ms between the 2 tests at EH was a gf bread roll with jam and a smoothie • The tests went fine and I think I did good. Eating wise everything has been quite good aswell. Now I'm resting and watching yt and then we will take a walk before going to the dog course!
Så blev røngtenfotograferingen af mine lændehvirvler overstået.. Jeg må ærligt indrømme at det at sætte mine fødder på et hospital bringer dårlige minder og nerver frem.. .. Det var et hospitalsbesøg der i tidernes morgen der fik mig til at udvikle OCD og bakterieskræk.. . Bare da vi parkerede bilen der fik jeg en kæmpe knude i maven og min hals begyndte nærmest at snøre sig sammen.. Jeg gik vitterligt og rystede hele vejen og gik som om jeg havde fået en dødsstraf! . Når jeg sidder og tænker på det ligenu, så kan jeg egentlig ikke lade være med at trække lidt på smilebåndet og give mig selv et klap på panden (🤦🏼‍♀️).. Jeg overlevede.. IGEN! 💪🏼 .. Der kommer sikkert flere hospitalsbesøg - Men ved I hvad? Det overlever jeg også! . Nu står den på lidt mad inden turen går til øjenlægen (som også ligger i Glostrup 😏) .. og i eftermiddag står den på et par timers praktik! . Ha’ jer nu en dejlig dag, lovelies! ~ Selvom vejret ikke lige er det bedste ☁️ . #rigshospitaletglostrup #anxiety #depression #depressed #borderline #sad #sadness #broken #worthless #pain #hurt #crying #thoughts #mentalhealth #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #fighter #tabu #staystrong
#30daychallenge Day 23: ✨I am treating myself to .......... today!✨ Yesterday I treated myself to a clean room. ✨ I spend most of my time in my room between my bed, my chair, and my desk. I rest lying down. I rest sitting down. And, when I can, I work #spoonielife So it’s safe to say that my room is almost my permanent environment. ✨ Having a clean and tidy environment does wonders for mental health. For me, it’s been a necessity for years because of obsessive compulsive traits in my personality disorder. I personally can NOT relax if things around me aren’t ‘as they should be’. I know this is not limited to those of us with obsessive compulsive traits though. ✨ An orderly environment is soothing to anyone. Feng Shui is a good example to draw on. There are proven psychological and spiritual benefits of having a space organised in a harmonious way. It’s very common for us to be upset, even if unconsciously, when our environment doesn’t have the right order, alignment, balance, lighting etc. ✨ Unfortunately with a chronic pain condition cleaning and tidying is using precious little energy to cope and I’m sure many spoonies will agree with me that it’s hard to keep things clean and tidy when we feel poorly round the clock. ✨ So, yesterday, I treated myself by spending all my spoons on putting everything where it lives, doing all the laundry, vacuuming, dusting, and watering my plants, and topped it off by burning my favourite incense. A clean room really is a treat. My mind feels more ordered and it’s nice to rest in a space that is ‘as it should be’
Not a bad start to the week 🚶🏻‍♀️
Breakfast in bed was 3 sandwiches, an apple and a cup of hot oat milk • Np (big tests here in Sweden) soon... the tests themselfs aren't that big of a deal, the thing is I'll have to do them at school and not at home like my other tests.
These nights are the worst. Post-tragedy Every moms nightmare has just happened. Now we think... That could have me, pregnant, walking with those people. It could have been me pushing Darryl’s stroller down the road on a sunny day. D could have been walking with his friends or on a field trip. I could be that mother who’s son was on lunch break walking down a road no different than any other road. The man who did this, I wonder how his mom feels So when I think of all these terrible things I wash my hands, I check the locks, I count the knobs on the stove. I wash my hands then check if my cars locked, if my sons breathing, if my worlds ending. Like all of the victims and their families. #strongbutnotthatstrong #ocd #toronto #restpeacefully #love #ontario #barrie #canada #drphil #mentalhealth #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #baby #mother #love #tragedy

I’m stressed and it’s showing through my skin picking. My work is an unhappy place. I’m actively interviewing elsewhere. I’m really hoping to get a call tomorrow that I have a job at an adult store selling sex toys. My picking had gotten bad and I’ve been smoking so much weed. I’v managed to keep my picking away from my bikini line, but my face is bad and I’ve done a number on a bump in my armpit. I’m super done with it all. I love the coworkers for social reasons, but the boss is incredibly unfair and harsh. It’ll be a good fresh start for me, and then I start school again in the fall.... #compulsiveskinpicking #ocd #ocdawareness #bfrb #bfrbawareness #excoriationdisorder #acne #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #skinpicking #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #stressedout #selfharm #panicattack #hatemyjob #panicdisorder #anxietysupport #dermatillomania #trichotillomania
Okay so.. I would have much rather you reached out directly than report my IG posts. But hey, I appreciate it. I'm fine. Better, actually. Things got really bad there for a minute but just like I've learned to do, I rode through it and am back where I was but this time feeling better. The funny thing about bipolar is that you can go down just as fast as you can go up. The rapid cycling can be exhausting but I've gotten used to it, learned what the signs are and when to expect it. . Instagram has been my go to. My journal, if you will and it has given me the chance to connect with people I otherwise would have never met. I just want to be honest about my mental health because in reality, for some of us, it isn't pretty. If I don't share the ugly parts, who will? . The mental health community needs to stick together and support one another. This shows that maybe we aren't all bad and this might be the only thing we know how to do and that's okay. We're in this together and I appreciate any and all support I receive, truly. ❤ . . . . . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthmatters #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #breakthestigma #invisibleillness #selfharmmm #secretsociety123 #stigma #mentalhealthawareness #stampoutstigma #endthestigma #anxiety #ocd #bipolar #bipolardisorder #recovery #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #depression #ptsd #ptsdawareness #breakthesilence #generalanxietydisorder #socialanxiety #schizophrenia #addiction #alwayskeepfighting #akf #mentalhealthwarrior
I'm so sorry I haven't posted for so long. I've had a lot going on and I was in a bit of depressed episode over the weekend. So there's this teacher. She's absolutely lovely, and helped me a lot last year when I wasn't feeling great, and I'd just end up crying in every lesson of hers and she was still nice to me. She doesn't teach me this year. I haven't really spoken to her in about nine months and I'm not getting any better. She ran this trip I went on and kept asking me if I was okay. For most of it, I was, but she kept checking just in case. When I stopped being okay, being me I just kept lying and saying I was fine. She told me she never believes anything I say anymore because I just spend my life saying I'm okay when I'm not. I was really out of it on the train back. I felt like absolute shit and was completely convinced it was going to crash. She knew something was up and kept checking in on me but I kept lying to her. I got home, had a panic attack and cried for an hour and 20 minutes. I went to find her today and told her I wasn't lying when I said that I'd really enjoyed the day, but I explained about everything that had been happening that week that caught up with me on the train, and she started going "Oh Zahra, I wish you'd have told me" and putting her hand on my shoulder. She's so lovely but that's exactly why I didn't tell her. I've got to learn to survive without her there to catch me, even if she's the only person that's ever cared. #themhjourney #anxiety #ocd #panicattacks #stress #panicdisorder #ocdawareness #ocdisnotajoke #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #breakthestigma #stopthestigma #endthestigma #stigma #anxietyrelief #anxietyattack #depression #depressed #camhs #counselling #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentallydrained #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvice #support #anxious #panic #socialanxiety #panic
Heyyy its Monday. 💙 I've been going pretty hard lately, what with the hustle and the doodles and the susy homemaker shit. 🐶👽✏🐛The hurricane caught up to me this weekend & so this is day 2 in bed, saving up spoons. Why? Cause Babe & I are running away to the mountains on Thursday, in honor of 9 years of livin', lovin', rockin' & rollin' through this life together.💙🤘🏻 We have a couple awesome hikes planned and I want to be ready to kill it 💪🏻✌🏻 Days like today, where my body is quite literally screaming at me, remind me of the importance of not allowing my mental health issues to override what I need for my physical health, to keep a balance that can be maintained. How fortunate I am that saving up spoons so I can hike to a waterfall is a viable option for me. Plans like this trip remind me how lucky I am to have a life partner who understands and supports my never ending search for that balance. I'm not sure where I'm going with this, other than, all my babes, chronically ch(ill) or no...take your meds, drink your water, eat a meal, take the nap if you need it. Know it's ok if you're just plum out of spoons. And if you're a fellow spoonie who is lucky enough to have a supportive, loving partner in life; make sure they know how much you appreciate them. I'll be over here sending good vibes from my pillow nest 🤗💙🙈 . . . #wordyAF #reasonsbeckaisholdingstill #mandatoryrestday #freckleface #livingwithchronicillness #livingwithmentalillness #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #bluegirlsclub #actualalien #princessskinsuit #spoonie #hurricanebecka #forceofnature #notdeadyet #stayweird #fatbabe #queerbabe #stonerbabe #witchbitch #fatgirlflowfam #fatshionista #girlswithpiercings #girlswithtattoos #girlswithshorthair #girlswithredhair #babeswithpiercings #babeswithtattoos #babeswithshorthair #whatfatgirlsACTUALLYwear
(Old photo) What I don't think people understand, is that low moods and mood fluctuations in people with mental illnesses aren't always situational. I can be low, monotonously low, not because anything awful happened, or because I had an argument, or because I got overwhelmed. Sometimes I'm just low. Regardless of my surroundings. Regardless of how my life is. I'm still low. Extremely low. Of course deep inside our brains there are neural pathways at work, biologically speaking there is a cause, a change in the brain pathways or chemicals. But we don't see any of that, we don't know what our brain has interpreted. That's not something we can find within us. So when we say we are low, sad, meh, and you ask us what's happened and we say nothing, it's not always because we are holding back, or we don't want to talk about it. We don't know. We literally can't even tell ourselves let alone you. We aren't becoming distant. We are being more vulnerable than you know, showing you a glimpse of a mind that doesn't understand itself. #mentalillness #mentalhealth #bpd #borderline #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #ptsd #depression #anxiety #bipolar #schizophrenia #anxietydisorder #obsessivecompulsivedisorder #eatingdisorder #anorexia #bulimia #bingeeatingdisorder #phobias #misunderstood #ehlersdanlossyndrome #pots
Ns was some b&j chunkey monkey😍😍 For dinner I had apple and cinnamon pancakes • Just nu är jag väldigt inne på imunologi. Det vill jag forska inom! Hur man kan behandla och bota autoimmuna sjukdomar och förstärka immunförsvaret hos äldre, för tidigt födda och sjuka personer vars immunförsvar är nedsatt och immunterapi i sånt! Jag tycker det är häftigt hur stark kroppen är och jag tror på att hjälpa den bli ännu starkare snarare än att tillsätta massa mediciner med andra ämnen, även om det självklart är nödvändigt ibland ändå. Så nyss satt jag och läste i mammas gamla medicinbok jag fått låna och nu ska jag lägga mig. Np imorn... • - - #benandjerrys #veganbenandjerrys #chunkeymonkey #immunologi #immunförsvaret #autoimmunsjukdom #forskare #forskning
