    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is ladypicassa. I'm here because i struggle everyday with trying to physically keep up with all the stuff that needs to be done after i wake up. Chrinic fatigue, arthritis in my hands, stiff sore legs,hip,back. I am totally depressed over the 3 miserable relationships i have to look back on. I am single and alone. Life looks very grim now. I wanted a relationship with a guy that would love me and keep me forever , treat me kindly and be caring and respectful. I get diagnosed with probably MS in 1995 and my husband said he doesn't want a sick wife for his life. That one statement changed my heart forever. Changed how i see my self and i feel angry. I struggle to be happy because i feel stuck at the level i am at now and i feel there will never be a " happily forever after" #stress #lacunar Infarction ( silent stroke, Mini stroke)# Diabetes

    Is it me or my PTSD? I look fine on the outside. I have a home. I drive a nice car. What no one sees, sometimes sees during a siezure, very embarrassing. Have my dog. I used to be a firefighter/paramedic. Very embarrassing to need 911 now. They can't see the rape or the deviation that has occurred. While processing the I have lost my mom and dad and service dog. Which someone asked me to dig her up. To me, this is terrosim. What to do. God has gotten me through this. I feel like a weenie looking at other people's problems. 30 operations later, how do I cope?

    Battles of the Mind a poem by me

    A wrote this poem a while ago to express my feelings about experiencing mental illness. I know now that the second half of the last line is not completely true especially when it comes to Fibromyalgia. However, I think It still works for the sake of the poem. I hope you like it.

    Scriptural promise manifesting in my life

    In 1 John 4:18 it says that “perfect love casteth out fear” and I got to see that come to fruition without me noticing until afterwards.

    Music plays a huge role in my life and is one of my main coping tools for my mental illnesses. I created both “Depression’s Bane” & “Anxiety’s antidote” playlists quite awhile ago, but more recently I looked back on the songs that ended up on my anxiety playlist. Every song was about either God’s love for me or my wife’s. So whenever my anxiety is trying to overwhelm me I have those songs to remind me that I blessed to be loved and have no need to fear.

    If you wish to check out my playlists in case some of the songs I picked would be helpful to you, you can find them on Apple Music or on my YouTube channel “Nerd,Patriot, Disciple”
