    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is CobaJstme. I'm here because a long with what's listed, I have also recently diagnosed with Scleroderma,Lupus and still in more diagnostics. Due to COVID my weekly therapy,EMDR therapy and acupuncture came to a screeching halt. Not good to just bam stop EMDR and we were very deep into.Therapist had a baby, which is great. So then she left. My rescue retired bird hunting dog was ALWAYS with me 24/7. Home,work, doctor's. Sadly and unexpectedly she passed. I still have guilt that I should have know and of course all alone in that rollercoaster. Leaving me with only a monthly call for 10 minutes with a lady I never meet. Now she told me last month she gave her 2 week notice. Yes, I have major abandonment issues. ALL of this has been a huge weight and struggle. Chronic, rare and possibly terminal illness took me away from the field I dedicated my life too in June of this year. My safe place..where I was appreciated and needed and loved. I'm now all alone. Husband doesn't do talking well. I'm just so mentally and physically exhausted. Need people who understand in my life. To know once again I am worthy of everything good. I'm ok with working through the daily struggles. I can't do all this alone anymore. Of course all my triggers have been triggered. PTSD! All of it 😞.

    Mental health routines

    Many of us have physical health routines that we practice regularly without questions. These things include taking daily vitamins, brushing our teeth, healthy eating, and maybe even physical exercise. We do this because we know that if we don't, our physical health will decline. But how many of us practice mental health routines as well? How often do we practice gratitude, self-love, acceptance, forgiveness, peace, or stillness? If you want good mental health, please do take good care of your mind. Are there some things you do to take good care of your mind?

    ~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

    Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

    What life lesson have you learned recently?

    For me I have learned that by allowing myself to be more open I have let in a very special new friend who means so much to me. If I shut myself off from the bad, I also shut myself off from the good. Allow yourself to be open. Good things can come to you! What’s a life lesson that you have learned recently? Please share! We’d love to learn from you! 😃 #MajorDepressiveDisorder #Anxiety #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder #EatingDisorders #TraumaticBrainInjury #MightyTogether #LGBTQIA #KetamineTreatment

    BPD + Anorexia Nervosa

    Anorexia — is an eating disorder characterized by an abnormally low body weight, an intense fear of gaining weight and a distorted perception of weight. People with anorexia place a high value on controlling their weight and shape, using extreme efforts that tend to significantly interfere with their lives.

    To prevent weight gain or to continue losing weight, people with anorexia usually severely restrict the amount of food they eat. They may control calorie intake by vomiting after eating or by misusing laxatives, diet aids, diuretics or enemas. They may also try to lose weight by exercising excessively. No matter how much weight is lost, the person continues to fear weight gain.

    Anorexia isn't really about food. It's an extremely unhealthy and sometimes life-threatening way to try to cope with emotional problems. When you have anorexia, you often equate thinness with self-worth.

    Anorexia, like other eating disorders, can take over your life and can be very difficult to overcome. But with treatment, you can gain a better sense of who you are, return to healthier eating habits and reverse some of anorexia's serious complications.#MentalIllness #MentalHealth
