    An Open Letter To Anyone That Is Struggling (Including Myself)

    We all struggle at some point whether it be with mental illness or physical health problems. This is just a sad fact of life but the good news is that we are stronger than what is in front of us. Sure our health problems may never go away but don't let that discourage you from reaching your goals and dreams. You are just as special as anyone else and just as capable even if you have limitations. There is something that makes each of us unique.

    If you're struggling with negative or anxious thoughts like I am then take a breath and acknowledge it. The more you acknowledge it the less power it seems to have over you. Sometimes our thoughts are misleading …. They can only be guided by emotion. This is okay so long as we are willing to work with it. Struggling does not make you less than, it makes you human!

    We are all on this journey of life together and our struggles possess the ability to teach us things. Some lessons are hard to face while others come quite easily.

    The point is, you are stronger and more capable than you give yourself credit for. I sometimes downplay my accomplishments but I shouldn't. Neither should you. If you got out of bed today-good. If you ate-good. If you went to work-good. Every little accomplishment deserves attention no matter how small. By celebrating our victories we validate ourselves and we deserve that. Our feelings and situations are valid even if others don't think so.

    What I am saying is: YOU GOT THIS! Whatever life throws at you is not impossible to deal with. So go out there and shine like the brilliant person you are because that's what the world needs, more people like you. I believe in you…and yes I believe in myself…most of the time, but reading this post really invigorated and empowered me.

    As always please stay safe and reach out for help if you need to.

    I might be a quiet borderline personality #MajorDepressiveDisorder #PTSD #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorde

    I only seen my new psychiatrist twice. He asked me if I think I have borderline personality disorder. I told him I’m more quiet borderline. I internalize my feelings til I snap. I laugh at things that I shouldn’t laugh at but definitely not on the mighty. For instance, I laugh watching my serial killer documentaries. Things have to be done at the moment I want it done. If I want something I want it now. I was misdiagnosed first one was bipolar 2 then borderline personality disorder. So hopefully this psychiatrist will get me an official diagnosis

    Living with bpd, have you ever gotten into a physical altercation with your spouse or someone you've dated or even family members?

    I’m new here

    #KetamineTreatment #BipolarDepression #Anxiety #PTSD #Bipolar2Disorder

    Hello to whoever reads this.
    My name is Lee. I am in my early forties and located on the East Coast.
    For the past 20 years I have suffered with severe treatment resistant depression and debilatitng panic attacks. A few years ago, after my suicide attempt and while I was in rehab fighting a nasty Xanax addiction I was diagnosed with Bipolar 2 and PTSD.

    I’m lucky enough to have a loving wife who had no idea what she was getting into and I have two wonderful amazing young sons that are my only reason for hanging on still.

    About a month ago I started a new cocktail regime of medicine as well as my 2nd round of CBT Therapy. I have also started getting ketamine infusions due to constant suicide thoughts.

    I really don’t want ti love to just simply wake up and fight another day. I’m glad I may have found a place where others can relate. As much as my boys keep me going, there are plenty of times that I feel that would just be better off with a new father. My anxiety has rubbed off on them already and I’m scared to see what mental illness I may have passed on to them.

    There’s a lot more to the story but that is just a little bit about my daily struggle.
