    Words Of Encouragement

    Depression is really getting to me. Could use some words of encouragement. I love inspiring others but I could use some inspiration right now. Please leave a message of encouragement and or inspiration. I want to see how many people will respond. Thank you all in advance.

    You know how sometimes you have to rant to your therapist? I feel better afterward but some of the things I learn make me question things. I learned a lot about why people blame abuse victims and deny their reality when confronted with the facts. However this blatant denial of my reality is hard for me to cope with. I can accept that I have no control over other people but at the same time, I still have difficulty understanding why someone would blame someone when they didn't ask to be abused or hurt. Especially when they are aware of the facts. How can I cope with their blatant denial and their shaming behavior. It starts a vicious cycle of self-blame and self-loathing. I have come a long way in my healing journey but I cannot seem to accept this behavior. Just trying to make sense of things.

    Kinda struggling with my mental health right now. Had a crying spell but have also been experiencing manic features. It's really getting me down about things and myself. I don't know what to do. I feel manic but also sad. I don't see myself splitting like some people with BPD do but I definitely feel a bit emotionally unstable at the moment. I feel like my disorders trigger each other. Memories of the trauma will come out of nowhere and upset me to tears. Manic energy will suddenly hit but I am also feeling run down like I'm getting sick. Nothing seems to be going my way right now. I was fine earlier in the day but now things are falling apart. I don't want to slip into a crisis. What should I do? I also don't want to slip into psychosis. Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    Crying and #PTSD

    Does anyone else with #PTSD go through random bouts of crying? I spent some time earlier today shaking and crying thinking about the #SexualAbuse and #SexualAssault I went through. Afterwards, I felt a little better but very confused. Is this normal, to randomly cry? The reading I've been doing says yes but it makes me feel like I'm going backwards in my healing. Can anyone offer any advice?

    I try to reflect on all that I've survived such as abuse and abandonment but that gets hard. It always triggers something. I appreciate all the help.

    *Thanks to everyone that commented on may earlier post about severe depression. It warms my heart to see how people can come together and offer advice and support :)

    How do you cope with severe depression?

    I have #BipolarDisorder and I've been very depressed lately. I don't want to slip into a crisis. I'm trying to bring myself out of it but all I want to do is sleep. I have no energy and no motivation. I don't really remember being manic, just extremely anxious. Near an anxiety attack. I want to come out of this but maybe I just need to go with it. I want to know what you think I should do. I'm trying caffeine which helps for a little but that's a temporary fix.

    *I also have #PTSD and #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder and the depression seems to be triggering these. I started crying about the abuse I went through then I felt incredibly emotionally unstable. I know that emotional instability is a symptom of BPD but I feel like the depression is making everything worse. I don't want to deal with this. I am not saying I am suicidal just that I don't want to feel this way. Again, any advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Clear Path

    So far this week I've been doing okay. I have a lot to be proud of myself for. Like I mentioned in a previous post, I can tell my story without getting too triggered. I can release all those pent up emotions that have been blocking my path. There are days when my anxiety acts up but I can move through it relatively easily now.

    There are so many things I am grateful for. I believe it is important to show gratitude. I am here and well (mostly). I have people that love me, I have a job and somewhere to live. It is the little things.

    I do my best to manage my physical and mental health. I am slowly healing from my past of abuse. I am slowly getting to where I want to be. My path continues to clear as I begin to love and accept myself and what I have survived. It is not an easy path. I still have days and sometimes weeks where the negativity seeps back in. But I continue to heal.

    The more I see the positive in my life the more clear my path will become. I am not going to tell you to stay positive because I know that advice doesn't always work but I will tell you to be grateful. Sometimes all it takes is a grateful heart. May you find what you are looking for and may your path clear for you too. Stay strong and you will be okay.

    I wanted to share the link for my blog on here. I have been trying to work myself up to sharing this publicly for over a year. I finally did it! I want everyone to know and share my story. My blog covers a lot of it. But I have so much more to tell.

    Please if you feel the need to, share this any and everywhere. I want to help all those people out there that think they are alone. Including those of you on here that are feeling alone. You are NOT. I am here if anyone ever wants to talk at all.
