    New Years Resolution #Depression #Anxiety #Relationships #PTSD #Hope #FamilyAndFriends #coffee #MentalHealth

    As the new year looms closer I have been thinking about what New Years resolution I will make. After spending 7 weeks and having 7 surgeries this year I thought about a resolve to stay out of hospital. Nope. I have a small cardiac surgery already scheduled.

    So I will repeat this years. I will only drink coffee on days ending in “Y”. It’s a winner.

    Snapped this photo this morning while I was on my exercise walk at the mall. Sometimes it is good to go before everything is open for business

    An overgeneralization opinion piece

    America needs to take a nap. I'm sure a lot of other places do too, but I really think we're all just sleep deprived... And so hopped up on caffeine we don't realize it (I can't have caffeine, so I actually don't know from experience).

    Personally, I feel exhausted trying to keep up with the world and what I feel is expected of me. Due to medical reasons, I can't have caffeine... "Have pity on me," I say. But the world never sleeps.

    Coffee Addiction Outta Control

    I have manic depression, and I KNOW I am really not supposed to consume caffeine (or anything that ends with “ine”). And I’ve received overwhelming confirmation that its effects are more harmful than beneficial…but for some reason lately it’s been so tough to break the addiction smh!! I cannot be the only person whose coffee/Starbucks/caffeine addiction is interrupting their entire life. Today, I did not have any caffeine, and my brain (which had a headache all day) and body craved it 90% of the whole day. I fought not getting some at work 😅. I really don’t know what to do to combat this addiction, and I want to fight it holistically. #help !!

    #coffee and #MentalHealth Talk

    Hello Everyone.

    I saw this at Starbucks earlier. I wanted to share the love over a cup of coffee. Whatever your favorite beverage is, sip it, and breathe in and out fresh air. Sometimes we have to remember the simple things as sweet and comforting at a cup of coffee. 💛

    How Are You Today???

    My coffee mugs: Number 1 #Depression #Anxiety #PTSD #coffee #Lockdown #MentalHealth #Relationships #Hope

    As locked down drags on I thought I would share photos of some of my coffee cup collection. I wouldn’t say I am a coffee addict, but, it’s hard to live without it.

    I choose a coffee mug each day depending on what mood I am in. Sometimes I pick a mug because I aspire to be in the mood that the cup inspires.

    This is one of my absolute favourite mugs. I bought it from a pop up craft market. I was on an 8 hour leave break from a psych hospital and my wife thought the market would be good for me.

    When I saw the mug I knew I must have this. It’s misshapen and looks like it’s been broken and put back together. Just like me. It is however still very functional and so beautiful. I told the seller, as I teared up, that the mug inspired me that although I had been in a dark place beauty could still come.

    Then the seller started to tear up. She explained it was her battle with depression that inspired her to start doing something creative.

    It seems destiny brought me and this mug together.
