Loki's First Birthday!!

Hey everyone!!
Been gone for a bit!! Crazy week and and been working on Loki's birthday photos!!
Tomorrow my baby boy turns 1 years old!!
Awe... I am so sad! It went by so fast!!
Well last Sunday Loki and his brothers got together to have their Birthday party!! It was a blast! We picked Sunday because their Birthday is tomorrow on a weekday! I started a flare that day because the night before i was up for 24 hours! My daughter ended up going to emergency for a pulled muscle in her shoulder blade. We came home and I slept for a few hours and headed out for Loki's birthday party!!
I just can't get over how much he has grown since we got him!! He is such a sweetest, loving and smart puppy!! I can't imagine life without him!!

In my thoughts

Today a lot of emotions hit me. On Monday I celebrated my 39th birthday, and it was amazing! I really had a great day. Today is a different story emotionally. I miss my best friend a lot. She has been on my mind so much these past few days. I know that if she was still here, we would be partying it up! Life feels so weird without her. The grieving process I feel never stops. Also today more emotions surface about my new life being in a wheelchair. I've been accepting more and more each day that this is my new normal, yet I miss my old life of walking and running around with my children and grandson. I miss being able to jump and go hiking. I miss being able to dance and not worry about if I'm going to fall or dislocate. This self isolation that we have going on has a lot of emotions and feelings surface. Some things I knew I was suppressing but also emotions and feelings that I thought I let go, yet I haven't fully cut the cord. Accepting and adjusting to being is my wheelchair is a daily lesson for me. As a Taurus, we don't like change to much. I realize that changes happen and it is OK to have anxiety about it. If I didn't I wouldn't be human. I do understand that changes are good even when you may not see it at the moment. I am learning to love this new person. I am learning to have a connection with my wheelchair and appreciate that it is helping my quality of life. It is apart of me and my new normal so I must be patient with myself when it comes to accepting. I wouldn't trade my life for the world though. I know that there is work to do when it comes to my feelings and overcoming my fears and anxiety but I am willing to do the work. It isn't easy and I know more will surface and the lessons comes with healing. So right now I need to release and let go. No matter how hard it maybe, I know that everything happens for a reason. Keep fighting!

twins? Oct 9!! ♎️

Found this in another group... but birthdays can feel just as awful as holidays sometimes, or that no one remembers or cares. Can we help each other out here and maybe make the day a little better for each other?? maybe even follow your twin.

#CheerMeOn #Happybirthday

Today is my birthday and I'm so happy because the past evening my therapist told me that he loves me (NOT in a romantically way!!!) and I've never feel loved by a man...he's the first, I'm so happy...I've BPD and my father is very cold, I think that some problems that I've were caused by the emotional and phisical negligence of my father. I'm happy because I'm a suicide survivor and I deserve to be loved and I deserve happiness. #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PTSD #Happiness #CheerMeOn #Happybirthday #Love

Happy Birthday To Me! #CheerMeOn

I had a wild ride of a year! When I actually think back on all I’ve gone through and accomplished it’s both overwhelming and exciting!

I completed exposure therapy, had a short mental health hospitalization, changed my meds, was off work, started a new job, gave probably around 20 presentations, volunteered for numerous things, and much more. I’m proud of myself!

I think I deserve some cheering!
