Good Morning!!!!!!!!!!! #CheckInWithMe #MorningRoutine #Clothing

Good Morning Mightys

I am on week 7 of staying safe at home. As my pic says, clothes have slightly changed as I live alone. Mainly pj's and lounging clothes.
Not a single outfit has been worn or bra or makeup.
I haven't worn any shoes only slippers or flip flops.
I haven't done my hair, it's been washed and put up in a bun or ponytail.

🧡😀😁 So this could become My new norm.

I might start a new fashion trend in my little part of the world 🌏

How about You.?????? What's your new norm !!!!!!

Love hugs kisses n more Tj

#Depression #Bipolar1Disorder #TemporalLobeEpilepsy #Anxiety

I will NOT give up! I’ve been battling bpd1, temporal lobe epilepsy, depression and anxiety since I was 17 I’m 32 now. Hospitalizd 8 times. Therapist twice a week for a year and NOW we (there are several of me😂) only see her once a month. Take my meds as prescribed and refuse to change it as I have been on literally everything South Africa has to offer.
I’ve been medically boarded so I sell fudge I bake myself. There is ALWAYS a way!
YES I do get my days and on those I take it easy, slowly, be kind to myself. Then....I lie down and pray that Jesus will just keep His hand over my life and help me navigate through this crazy thing called life. #pleasedontgiveup #bekindtoyourselves #youwillovercomeit #Takeitslow


#52SmallThings Kindness

It was a tough week. I had several panic episodes and, although I’m still recovering i achieve the goal which makes me so proud of my self #morethanworthy .
For me: I got out of bed, and right now I’m waiting to get my manicure done. (It’s so hot in argentina!)
For a love one: yesterday i cooked for my mom some pancakes (gluten free), watch with her another episode of Good Girls and concentrate on her laugh after watching her so tired the other night trying to take me out from panic.
For a stranger: I wrote a Message to someone here who was having a bad day. I was in tears but i knew i need to do that for her and for me. SHE REPLY! And that fill my heart with happiness in the middle of my storm!
