    When your brain is taxed

    Wassup fellow warriors! Just curious, am learning I am extremely sensitive to stress. My brain easily and quickly gets taxed. I try not to push myself too hard as it can result in an episode and I want to handle myself with kid gloves. Anyway, when your brain is taxed yet you have more responsibilities in your day, how do you rest your brain so that you can continue to knock to dos off your list? Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, peeps! #stressed #Brain #kidgloves #MentalHealth #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder

    What can cause ASD?

    This is possibly due to disruptions in normal brain growth very early in development. These disruptions may be the result of defects in genes that control brain development and regulate how brain cells communicate with each other. Autism is more common in children born prematurely. Researchers are still researching#Autism #Brain


    Mental Health Research Study

    I've been chosen to participate in a Mental Health Research Study that the University here in my town is doing. I'm excited about this and am so glad i can help. This afternoon will be my first day. Kind of nervous. But I feel good. I hope it helps in some way.

    Paying for an MRI/MRA

    Hello Mighty Community! Does anyone have any advice on how to pay for an MRI/MRA? My roommate needs them. She’s on her parents’ insurance still but no one in her family has been sick this year so there’s been no movement on their deductible. It will cost her 6 months of our rent to get these done, which she can’t afford #ChronicIlless #MRI #Finances #Insurance #Health #Brain #HealthInsurance


    Sneaky intersection of Post Concussive Syndrome, Trauma and ADHD #PCS #Trauma #Brain injury #ADHD

    @mattsloan Info pls:) Thought car accident dislodged buried emotions, but wondering if there’s more to it than a brain/nervous system toss? What’s known re the misdiagnosis of presenting similarities of PCS, Trauma, and ADHD? Anyone?

    Addiction recovery alternatives are in high demand. Recovery is achievable and must start in the brain to break the recovery-relapse cycle!

    What in the world would make me want to create a support group for people with apathy? Well, I have at least seven individual legit reasons why I suffer from apathy all at the same time. That means I tend to succumb hard to not doing anything at all. It is very challenging and I am tired of it.

    If other people who struggle with apathy are too apathetic to post here with me then I will just try to share my experience as I attempt to climb out of this hole in the hope that others will learn and be inspired by what I share.

    I am working with #major depression, #Anxiety #abandonment , #Fibromyalgia , #Brain trauma, #chronic stress, #Toxic environment, #thyroid problems, multiple medications that have apathy as a known side effect, prolonged marijuana use for chronic pain, and who knows what else.

    I spend my time being my husband's 24/7/365 caregiver. He is on disability for #Mild cognitive impairment, which means for him that he has basically no short-term memory and huge cognitive problems from being unable to steer his own brain. He presents as a completely normal, but forgetful person to strangers, but the truth is that I do everything for him and get little in return. He cannot be left alone because he would wander away and get lost within a block of our home. He cannot help around the house because he cannot remember how to do things, cannot follow instructions or make decisions, has no initiative, is unable to do his own hygiene, etc... It's brutal for me. He doesn't understand that anything is wrong, either.

    But none of that is about apathy! All I do anymore is take care of our basic needs... and hide on my phone playing games, writing, watching video, or playing with my cat in my bed. Oh, and I think a whole lot about what I should be doing.

    I am so apathetic that I don't leave our home unless we need to run an errand or have an appointment. I would feel so much better if I walked every day, but... I just don't go. It simply doesn't happen in spite of understanding that it would help.

    PLEASE share about your apathy.

    Has Hypnosis helped you?

    Hi everyone I'm Mel. I was diagnosed in 2016 with BPD and had a diagnosis of CPTSD, anxiety, depression aswell as arthritis and COPD. I am seeing a lovely therapist who does hypnosis, art therapy and talk therapy.
    My question for you is have you had hypnosis and has it helped? How do I let go and let myself follow the instructions and not let my mind get in the way? #Hypnosis #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #BPD #Anxiety #Brain
