Day out with my toddler :)

Today in Birmingham the weather was super hot! Usually I’d have too much anxiety to go out and we would usually stay indoors and I end up feeling bad for my little one.

But today I planned a last minute day out with him to the Botanical Gardens and we had so much fun! We really needed to go out and bond properly. It was great watching him have so much fun enjoying the sun. It really cheered me up :)

So just sending positive vibes to everyone dealing with anxiety/depression that like me may be too afraid sometimes to enjoy life. Love you all. ❤️

How to get over instability

I have had a fear of stability my whole life. Now that I am 30, it has to stop somehow. Scared of staying in friendships, scared of staying in jobs, scared of community, romantic partners, etc. Always afraid they will find out how different or odd I may be and rejection will occur. The fear in general makes me odd, which makes situations bad.

To anyone who has beat this, kindly, please give me advice. It's all I have really ever known and am at a place in life where running is not an option anymore. Can't do that to my kids as they are young and deserve stability themselves. Stability may help with finding me, but it is terrifying yet has to be done...

Healing is Possible

Many of us believe that healing #Anxiety or #Depression isn’t possible. But I believe that we can heal. As these are manifestation of underlying causes. Heal the underlying causes and the manifestations will subside.

Well, meaningful friends and family, they are, but they lack a true understanding of what we struggle with. If you've heard these and other comments, I know how hurtful they can be, and for that I'm sorry!

Progressive Muscle Relaxation💖

Hey guys, it’s been a while since I’ve posted in here. So in school I have a therapist who visits me on a weekly basis and she told me this Muscle relaxation technique and I thought I’d share it with you all! No promises it will work I haven’t tried it myself yet but it is worth the try so for this you are probably best to find a private and quiet location,and you should either sit or lie in a comfortable spot. The idea of this technique is to intentionally tense each muscle and then to release the tension.

A) tense the muscles in your toes by curling them into your foot. Notice how it feels when your foot is tense, hold the tension for 5 seconds.

B) Release the tension from your toes. Let them relax. Notice how your fingers feel differently after you release the tension.

C) Tense the muscles all throughout your calf. Hold for 5 seconds. Notice the feeling of tension in your legs.

D) release the tension from your calf and notice how the feeling of relaxation differs.

Follow this pattern of tensing and releasing tension all throughout your body. After you finish with your feet and legs, move up through your torso, arms, hands, neck, and head.

I hope this will help some of you guys out there and I’m wishing the best of recovery to all #youcandothis #beatanxiety

What we don't Heal, REPEATS!

Do you find yourself in the same situations over and over and over again? Maybe a bad relationship? Friendship? Maybe its weight gain or weight loss? Maybe is smoking, drinking, sex, using drugs (unhealthy coping).
There are so many of us that find ourselves on repeat and wonder why.
I found in my own life, that it was due to NOT healing the underlying causes that drove back to these situations.
You see what we refuse to heal, repeats. Oh yeah sure we can fake for a bit. You know like the euphoric feelings when you meet that new guy/girl. Life is great! Or that excited feeling when starting a new job. But over time those feelings fade, and we find ourselves right back on repeat.
Want to stop the cycle? Heal the real the issues!

This Pain

How do we find purpose in the pain? Whether it's physical or emotional there are reasons for the pain.
Pain is there to alert us that something isn't right. Something is off, and needs our attention.
What I found in my own life is when I was experiencing physical pain I'd attend to it quite quickly to make sure it healed. However, my emotional pain I ran from, tried to ignore, fought, acted like it wasn't there, etc....And then wondered why it never healed.
For many of us we don't want to acknowledge the hurts in our life. Why? Because it only hurts! But! When we can acknowledge it, work through it, it can be healed. And it's only through the healing process that we can find what we so desperately need - purpose

How Do You Recognize Signs of a Panic Attack? Then what?

Panic episodes can range in symptoms and severity, but are known to be abrupt in onset, and display at least four of the following:
▪️Palpitations, pounding heart, or accelerated heart rate
▪️Trembling or shaking
▪️Sensations of shortness of breath or smothering
▪️Feelings of choking
▪️Chest pain or discomfort
▪️Nausea or abdominal distress
▪️Feeling dizzy, unsteady, light-headed, or faint
▪️Chills or heat sensations
▪️Paresthesia (numbness or tingling sensations)
▪️Derealization (feelings of unreality) or depersonalization (being detached from oneself)
▪️Fear of losing control or “going crazy”
▪️Fear of dying
To overcome a Panic Attack we must:
✅ Allow them
✅ Acknowledge them
✅ Accept them
✅ Discover the cause of them
✅ And ultimately embrace them
I teach a number of modalities to help you through them, but it is only when we learn to embrace them can we truly overcome them.
I know, I know - EMBRACE them???!!! I'm kray kray! But the fact of the matter is what we RESIST WILL PERSIST...AND EVEN GET WORSE! So the key to beating then is to invite the panic and still do is the action that gets us over them.
If you are struggling please reach out I'd love to see if I can help.
If you want change you gotta to be the change or you'll stay the same...and even get worse! #Anxiety #PanicDisorder #Agoraphobia #beatanxiety


Petals of Pain ......... #MightyPoets

Drip, drip, drop,
Rain beats upon one’s rooftop;
Steadily in shifts,
Pounding bass into it’s mix.
The melodic tone of nature's tears,
Wreak havoc on my Fibro fears.

Lyrics defined by suffering,
Rhythmic beads portray each song;
Purple tears, my petals of pain,
Are the cadence I wish to prolong.

Will these same notes beat forever,
Or set my thoughts adrift?
Into a state of mindless pleasure,
Where I can feel the downbeat shift.

Heaven’s sorrow is a chorus,
Which saturates my soul;
Outwardly, I’m dying,
Yet inwardly, I’m whole.
