    Stressed about family dynamic and speaking up for myself

    I've come to realize that both of my parents have narcissistic tendencies, but they're intertwined with their views about religion and the Bible. For instance, I was told repeatedly in my life "Is this the person you want to be? Do you think this is how God wants you to be?" followed by a lecture usually involving scripture and prayer. I'm finally standing up for myself more, which can sometimes turn into a meltdown because my parents do not try to hear me out and I get frustrated. My dad tried to teach me to be unconditionally respectful of everyone my whole life but that's just not for me. Im not gonna respect you if you bully and tease me. Unfortunately, I have to live at home currently at 25 years old because Im in school and can't afford to move out any time soon. Any advice on how to stand up for myself while still respecting that my parents are letting me live here? #CheckInWithMe #ChildhoodAbuse #PTSD #CPTSD #ADHD

    Self Care

    What can I add to my routine besides therapy and meds? #CheckInWithMe #PTSD #BipolarDisorder #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder I want to get into a routine. Keep my anxiety and emotions under control. I have DBT therapy and it has been really helpful but meds don’t fix everything. All three of the disorders trigger each other somehow. I feel like I’m slipping into a depressed episode, I have intense anxiety and my BPD gets in the way. I’m looking for stability.

    My wedding is in 3 weeks and my best friend who is in my wedding party has been hospitalized with a live threatening infection, and most likely won’t be there. I know it’s just a wedding day and his health is more important, but still it hurts. It’s already been a hard year for me. It all feels to much my heart is breaking and I’m trying to process it all so I’m not depressed on my big day. I feel alone. #Anxiety #depressed #summertimesadness

    The WORST 72 hours

    In the last 3 days I've walked out on a potential new eye Dr. (luckily the issue I needed the appt. for resolved itself), been flooded with ever-intensifying family drama over my grandma's estate, been ghosted by no less than FOUR employers, and been completely STRIPPED of my reproductive RIGHTS. Then blocked my dad on social media as a result of his choice to focus on "protests, property damage" and conspiracy theories instead of his only child's right to autonomy over MY OWN BODY. Add the fact that this was the week I was scheduled for ONE shift at work, and I just F***king can't anymore. #CheckInWithMe #Depression #Anxiety #Disability #neurodivergence #Stress

    My soon-to-be-ex husband dropped off divorce papers for me to sign today (Friday).

    It's my 50th birthday on Monday.

    This is the person who, one week after I'd put one of my cats to sleep, announced he wanted a separation, failing to mention that he'd met someone else. And that she was married. With a son. Best of luck to them. I hope she does to him as he's done to me.
