    Seasonal depression

    I actually wrote a blog about it with some tips on QueenMoonbeam.com.
    It has been in the 70s here so I have been going outside with the fresh air and making it a point to soak up the extra warmth and sun we are oddly getting when it is usually close to snowing. #sad #SeasonalDepression #winterblues #bipolarweather #blogger

    I just wanted to let everyone know a little about my present life at the moment. My girls and I are preparing to head out on vacation in 2 weeks and I've been spending a lot of time working on my new website misunderstoodchaos.com

    Feel free to stop by and check out the new posts. I've also been getting ready for summer semester to start back up. I'm actually ready to tackle classes again. This mental health break has been life changing and I'm grateful for the growth, but I'm ready to get back to living!!

    Mental Health Matters

    If you are on social media, pls use hashtag #mentalhealthmatters as much as you can. This is in hopes that when mental health advocates join together, we can get people talking about the failing mental health system and changes will finally be made.

    Stigma will be erased, the mentally I'll will be treated with dignity and get proper treatment and so much more.

    If you consider yourself a mental health advocate, please do this small thing. It hopefully will make a big impact. #MentalHealth #blogger #mentalhealthadvocate #MentalIllness

    Hey, everyone! How are you all doing? I hope you are all doing well. I just wanted to take a second and share my blog, which is centered around mental health and my own personal stories with it. I thought a lot of you could probably relate, and if you want to, feel free to share your own blogs below! Happy reading :-)

    Take Heart #Depression #Anxiety

    Some days I feel confident in who I am in Christ, in who I am as a wife and mom, and who I am as a person. I wake up refreshed and determined, ready to tackle the day.

    But let me be honest. That is NOT my daily life. A lot of days, like today, I wake up to another headache, my daughter screaming for breakfast, a list of things I wish I had done yesterday but didn’t, and the stress and anxiety of a global pandemic and political unrest beating at my brain.

    I’m not going to sugarcoat it. This has been a freaking rough year. Mentally, spiritually, financially, physically, you name it. And I know I’m not the only one feeling the pressure and the fear. I know so many of us are stretched super thin, anxious and worried about what the next few months could possibly hold at this point.

    Part of me just wants to run away and get away from everything. I want to pretend, to be ignorant of all the pain in the world, because at least I’d hurt less. I want to just plow forward mindlessly, like a drone.

    I know the fire licking at my heels isn’t the fire of hell, though. It isn’t an attack from the enemy, but the refining fire of the Lord, shaping me and molding me into who I am meant to be. And though it hurts a LOT, though my heart and mind ache, I know that I am meant to grow and change right now. I am meant to wait on God’s timing. I am meant to hurt, not for the sake of pain, but so that the pain can reveal places in my heart and mind that still need to be healed and made whole.

    Sounds rough, doesn’t it? I’m not a fan of it myself, but it’s like cleaning out a wound before you can stitch it closed— you have to get all that infection out before you seal the wound. Otherwise, your wound will be worse than before.

    Job 13:15a says, “Though He slays me, yet I will trust in Him.” 2 Corinthians 4:8-10 says, We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; 9 persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. 10 We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.”

    Sometimes being a Christ follower means walking with Him on smooth roads in the sun, but so much more often it’s experiencing the dark realities of life with Him, clinging to His side and allowing Him to whisper love and truth into the hurt.

    Even in this tumultuous time, Jesus is not caught unawares. He is by our side, offering grace for each day.

    “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)

    Your Mess is Welcome Here #MentalHealth #Depression

    The truth is something that can be heavy, yet it can truly free you in ways beyond what you imagine. When the truth is hidden, it can tear apart families, trust, homes and happiness.

    There is something about telling the truth—to yourself, to others—for the first time that really has an ability to cleanse the cobwebs from your heart. There is a freedom in knowing the truth, accepting it, and moving on. It no longer has a hold on you. It can no longer define you.

    longer define you.

    I was sexually assaulted as a child. That truth is horrible, hurtful, and heavy, but it is not one that keeps me cowering in the shadows any longer. John 8:32 tells us that the truth will set you free. And the very first time I found myself admitting the truth to myself and to someone else, I felt freer than I had ever felt.

    The first time I told the story of my abuse was five years ago. And in the last five years, I’ve seen God do incredible things.

    I’ve learned to trust again.

    I’ve learned the difference between good touch and bad touch, and how to ask for and receive good touch from my husband.

    I’ve learned that my value is not in the things that were done to me, but in who I am in Christ.

    I’ve learned who that little girl inside of me is, and how to listen to her and take care of her.

    I’ve learned that healing is a priority; seeking help is not only good but necessary.

    I’ve learned who to talk to about my experiences, and how to talk to them about it.

    And oh my gosh, healing is not easy.

    I still struggle with depression and anxiety.

    I fight to reclaim my self-worth on a daily basis.

    I cry, I pray, I regress.

    But I don’t stop. I won’t stop. This is the most important journey I’ve ever embarked on.

    Your journey is different, I’m sure. There may be some similarities in our stories, though. If there are, I am truly sorry for the pain you have experienced.

    It is not your fault, nor was it ever your fault.

    My desire is for this blog to be a safe place for you and for others who carry the burden of a horrible injustice or a crippling stigma. This is a place of acceptance and peace, where stigmas and labels are pushed aside and we can be ourselves.

    Here, I hope and pray you will learn three of the most important truths I’ve learned in my healing journey.

    Blog about mental health

    Hi all! I recently lost my mom to suicide this December of 2019. It was nine days before her 55th birthday. She struggled with depression and anxiety and a lot of other medical conditions. Soon after she passed I started a blog about my experiences with mental health and others experiences. I like to write about what I’ve gone through in my life and I’ve included topics that aren’t around mental health but I still think they’re important. If you’re interested, I’d love for you to read through some of them and give a follow if you’d like to continue with me on my journey through life. I’d love to get any feedback as well so please comment what you think below!

    What are some useless tips for a first time #blogger?

    I have only been on this app for a few days and am already loving the idea of creating a blog. so I was wondering if anyone had any useless tips or even links to blogs to take notes from?

    Post

    I spent virtually all night writing and fine tuning a new post to my blog, titled "Having a Mood Disorder Means Living in a Constant State of Identity Crisis." It's available on my blog currently (girlprecarious.com). It's incredibly personal, and I wrote it from a very vulnerable place. I shared the blog post to a mental health subreddit and received my first flippantly negative comment.

    Basically, they stated that my work was disorganized and came off as rambling. I've learned (especially in recent) to meet harshly worded criticism with kindness, but considering how hard I worked on this post, I was incredibly embarrassed and considered just deleting the post all together.

    It really triggered my impostor syndrome. I have dedicated a lot of time recently to my pursuit in writing and blogging for advocacy.
    I'm trying to remind myself that compared to this first and only negative comment I've received thus far on this journey, I have 5 - 10 positive comments of encouragement. I've had people I barely know on a personal level reach out to me and tell me how much of an impact my work has had on them so far.

    I've mostly calmed down by now, and made the decision to NOT let one bad vibe this morning derail my mission to provide honest advocacy through my writing. It's difficult to toughen my skin and handle hecklers with grace when I suffer from a mood disorder.

    Ugh. I just needed to vent a little, and this seemed like the right place to do so without a whole lot of judgement. I hope everyone is having a better morning than I have so far.
