    Wonders of a weighted blanket as a body pillow!

    I’ve tried body pillows in the past to help sooth when it’s a rough night but they never helped much. What I discovered does help is my extra weighted blanket! Fold or roll it to a body pillow shape and wrestle it into a position of a person, back support, or something substantial you can hold through the night that won’t slide away. I have one rolled up on my bed all the time now, it really helps comfort me. #self soothing #better sleep #weighted blanket #body pillow

    BPD can be “cured”. Is there anyone out there close to the light at the end of the tunnel? What have you done to get where you are?

    Strength Through Ink #Ink #Tattoo #BipolarDisorder #strength #better #ItGetsBetter

    Yo! It was about time for another tattoo, so I went and got it done the other day! I am SO happy with how it turned out 🤩🎭

    I mainly wanted to have it represent my struggles with bipolar disorder and I think it shows that PERFECTLY! Also, the line "Heaven knows I'm miserable now" was taken from one of my favorite bands (The Smiths) and their song titled "Heaven Knows I'm Miserable Now" 🎵

    Truth be told, I am /not/ miserable at the moment and am actually feeling pretty damn good, but I have clearly fought tooth and nail through a lot of terrible ugliness in my life, and so I want this tattoo to also be a reminder of where I have come from and how things can go from bad to good (or vice versa) in the blink of an eye 👁 You just never know! I have been on a good streak for a while now and am hoping it stays that way🤞

    Have A Better Day #better # fibro#Laugh #today #live

    I woke up in terrible pain this morning. But its ok. I am breathing and alive. Yay!!! 🙌

    I read this and had to post.

    A lady came in this morning and walked to the front desk to greet us before gasping loudly, " I forgot my dog!!" She forgot to bring her dog to the VET.

    I here you. If my ass wasnt attached to me i would forget to take it with me to the bathroom. Lol.

    Have a better day. Laugh a bit, its wonderful.

    Gotta "Believe", as my little ceramic garden frog says!!! I've been where I only hoped for death. I'm near there still. But after 4 days of intense physical #Pain ,that finally affected me yesterday- #Emotionally & #mentally & #spiritually , I'm determined to have a #better #day #today !!!! Damn Straight!!!! Out with intrusive #negative thoughts,& memories. Out with holding onto #resentments I've held on to from those who've badly & painfully done &/or said malicious things to #hurt me. I've been #oppressed by these things too long !!!! I'm "shaking it off - I'm throwing it away. Well,let's be honest. Let's say, I'm not going to quit working on it. I suppose it's a process....but it starts with a decision & succeeds with #Determination & #tenacity !!!! ~·~·~· #PTSD #Memories #Trauma #multipletrauma #Drugged #raped ~·~·~·~......my story is too ugly to continue on this path.....im chucking it all atleast for today. I need a day off from this high degree of continual #Anxiety & #Depression & #Pain . it's affecting my #Sleep & the intensity of pain of my #Fibromyalgia ......im going to "find some #peace of #mind " (a line from a RHCP song. )........today I'm "on #Vacation " ,.......(from my #Problems )😁oh man, but DOES MY BODY #hurt !!! ......Need #rest & ssleep......this morning I have a virtual psychiatric appt .via ZOOM......a "Psych-Eval "- geeze!!!
