The "daymare" I am living within.

This is a place where we can share our #Thoughts and our #feelings to one another. I have been #Trying hard to make things right with my life, and I know that it is difficult. I think a lot of us in this world feel a bit #lost right now. It is understandable because of what is happening in #ukraine and #russia at the moment. It is also #difficult to deal with #MentalHealth at the same time when you have a #MentalIllness that does not ever take a break. #Medicine can only take you so far in this world to make things #stabilized in the mind.

When #stressful situations occur, it is more difficult for those who have mental health conditions to handle than that of someone who does not have it. It is because we are already battling a mental war trying to use our #Therapy skills to apply to the #behavioral aspect of things while the medication helps take care of the #Neurological aspect of things. However, on the right kind of #Medication we are able to handle things a lot better. Of course we will always have some kind of #Sadness in our lives, as it is not the #Goal of medication to make us #robotic . However, the medicine we take does help to ease the existing conditions we already have so that we are less #sensitive to the #Extremes we would feel without the medicine.

I have #BipolarDisorder so this is something that is already a #Battle since I was about 16 years old. Sometimes all I can do is put on some lipstick and handle it the best way that I can, even if that means I need to take a few extra #Naps in the day. Whenever you are faced with #extreme amounts of #Stress things are not going to be easy for you. That is #normal . I just #wish that life were a lot #easier to handle though for those of us who have pre-existing mental health conditions that create more conflict and blow up the #emotional responses.

So - If you are #Reading this, please #DistractMe and give me something to think about other than my Dad's liver #Cancer


Extreme pain.

Had fibro 6 years now. Thought I had gotten used to the pain. But at the moment it has hit another level. Got to be a 15/10. I feel like it is driving me mad. Taking pregabalin, but notreally touching it.

Struggling with #Depression today out of the blue

I have suffer with #BipolarDepression , #MajorDepressiveDisorder #extreme anxiety #suicidality #sad #GAD #PTSD #Neuropathy #sciatica

Anyway, I’d been doing great and then all of a sudden out of nowhere boom I’m hit with depression for no reason. Has this happened to anyone else and do you have any advice on what to do to help?


#extreme anxiety

Does anyone else believe that this extreme anxiety will someday be found to be a physical problem rather than a phychological one? Like maybe the adrenal glands are working over time especially when one can’t find a good reason for it; no stray thoughts or triggers?
