My dream

Hi ! I’m Aurelie and I’d love to talk to you about my dream that is to become a webcomics illustrator and author ! I’m on the middle of drawing my own story, as I’ve always had this thing for telling stories in the bus in high school !

Telling, inventing stories has always made my life more colorful and I’m working to make it a career.

Perseverance is the key, I think. I’ll do it until I succeed.

I pray you do not give up on the dreams that make your life colorful and lively cause the world needs us to be more aware and happy and relieved 😌

I just had a really amazing dream that I started a huuuuuuge entertainment nonprofit that traveled all across the world and brought cooks, comics, musicians, and other people together to raise funds for things like research into cures for diseases, funding LGBT resource centers , helping at food banks and homeless shelters and more... The Try Guys were in my dream. We got an RV and decorated the inside with inspirational pictures from hundreds of artists. We got talent like chef Andrew Zimmern , musicians like Devin Townsend ,and improv comedians like Colin Mochrie just to name a few. It...blew my mind. I wish I could actually make it a reality. I've been trying to find meaning and purpose to my life and that would be the ultimate perfect thing.

A day of mild anxiety from a dream I don't remember

Have you ever felt like you are anxious continously for seemingly no reason?
As a recovering BPD person, I often take a long route of searching for any event that might have triggered it.

Until one day, I realized, it is probably from some dream(s) I had the night before, that kept me up fir quite a while. It was scary, not devastating. It probably just hit a soft spot.

Even though I do not remember it completely, it was something about abandonment.
The realization helped me though... #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder

G'day! Actually hi...it's only really the bush folk that give that greeting ;)

How is everyone? We have almost hit 50 members, which I think is fantastic...it means we are out there and sunning ourselves like a lizard in the hot sun! If you have made friends on here who are over 50, don't forget to invite them to the group! As 50+er's, we need all the support from each other that we can get.

If you are brave enough, speak up and share who you are and why you're here in this group...tell me what you hope to get out of it so that I can try and cater to your needs.

I'm here because I believe that so often people have an image in their head of what a person with a mental illness looks like. What comes up in your mind when you see/hear those words? The truth is that M.I. affects people of all cultures, genders, and of course - ages. "Society" often forgets that we can be more mature and still suffering. In fact, I think at our age we are missed. It is either a troubled teenager, or an elderly person who has a form of senility that is thought of when prompted.

What about us, the group that is trying to deal with the fact that they're probably past the halfway point, but still have a life to live? A life that still has potential? I know I still have hopes and dreams. It's ok to be over 50 and still have goals in mind - in fact I would encourage you to consider this. What ideas do you have for yourself in the future, 'after' this? Things might be rough at the moment, but that doesn't mean it will always be this way. Do you have plans? Plans for tomorrow, plans for next week, next month, next year etc? Do you have a 5 year plan, a 10 year plan?

If you're like me, you're probably saying, 'C'mon, I can't even think past now!' 'It's hopeless, why bother?' 'I don't want to think about the future, it's too hard'! Well, why can't we? Is it because your suffering is too intense? Does your self-talk stop you?

In my therapy session yesterday, I was told that we should talk to ourselves with self compassion - the way we would speak to a friend. Some of us wouldn't even say what we say to ourselves to our enemies! Would we say to a friend that they didn't deserve to dream? No! We would tell them to aim for the stars!

So, in your mind (or if you forget or are anal like me - write it down ;), tell yourself your dreams and goals. Try making a plan. You are so special, you are so worth it! If no one else tells you today/tonight, then I will - YOU ARE WORTHY! I firmly believe that you deserve to soar like the eagles. Now start thinking or writing...

Care to share? Here's the place for some encouragement - even if it's to tell me that tomorrow you're going to have a shower. YAY! I am your number one fan!!! GO TEAM YOU :)

Lots of love, Judi.

I don't want to turn off the light and lie down to go to sleep because of the nightmares I've had the past week. I wake up super tense and curled up in the fetal position with a feeling of terror. Last week was quite stressful which might have triggered them. And now I have to go back to work tomorrow after the weekend, so I feel the stress building again. I'm so tired but so afraid.

What CAN you do today?

Stuck in a 5 day flare. Thoracic Outlet Syndrome affects my entire left side and makes it hard to move. Yesterday, I could barely walk through the mall without stopping and leaning against a wall. It causes such unbearable pain, stiffness and fatigue.

They say get out of the house when you don’t feel well, it will make you feel better. Sometimes, it's better to rest and stay home. I’m still only able to walk small distances today.

Days like these are mental days. Where my hands and body don’t work well enough to do much at all.

Too much time spent in my head day. Watching what others can do.

Fighting back tears day, and trying to be strong.

Dreaming day. Dreaming of the day I can be more than this.

Angry day. Angry that I can’t do what I’m dreaming of.

These days I need people to distract me, but I’m so in my head it’s hard to pretend I’m ok.

Yesterday, I was able to look up and take this photo, even though I was stuck in the chair because I could no longer walk through the mall.

Today, I was able to make this post.

What CAN you do today?

A dream about my ex

I just woke up from a dream about my ex. He is a narcissist. I have had no contact with him since 2013, but somehow he shows up in my dreams. I hate this!
It feels like I can't fully break free from him even after such a long time. How is he still in my head?? How can I get him out?
Not the start to 2022 that I wanted...

Do you daydream?

I always found the term ‘daydream’ funny. While it doesn’t have to only mean you have them during the day, it sounds silly to say you’re daydreaming at night.

Do you find yourself daydreaming? If so, what do you daydream about? I’ll start below ⬇️
