    I’ve heard of a good thing for loneliness

    I’ve heard an amazing place for loneliness that helps you to get connected. It’s called belugapods , look out for it on in Sta and give it support.

    A Journey Within

    I don’t know about you but I get bored writing in my personal journal sometimes. I love my bullet journals because I can be creative and not just write about my life which here lately is incredibly hard to write about sometimes but I also find writing to be therapeutic. So I found this activity journal today at Walmart for under $10. Each page is a new prompt to write about and really makes you think. Plus each page has an inspirational/motivational quote. Definitely a good buy that I recommend!

    I have an idea or suggestion for all of you. It may not be your thing but hopefully for some it is and may help ☺️

    Like most of you, I’ve heard it ALL when it comes to coping mechanisms and ideas to help with mental illnesses. Honestly very very few help me or have much effect. So one day I bought a bullet journal, you know the ones with dots instead of the standard notebook lines? I liked it so much and all the things you could do with them that I have now accumulated 10 or so lol. I don’t write in them like a journal though (I have a standard notebook for that) but I use them for several different things. My favorite one I call my “Mental Health” journal where I use it as a mood tracker, I also write down all of my symptoms as with the brain fog it’s hard to remember them all when talking to the doctors. I also have a section where I write down inspirational/motivational quotes, I have a page where I wrote down all the lies depression tells me, another page with all the lies anxiety tells me, a page listing my triggers, a page on what to do if an anxiety or panic attack hits me. There’s so much you can do with it and I glam it up with washi tapes, stickers and stencils and use pretty pens. I’ve also wrote many ideas for self care. Self care on good days and self care for bad days because self care is different depending on how we feel. When I’m having a bad day, I look back through my journal and it honestly helps. You can find bullet journals at Walmart, Dollar General, and Amazon, you can even get them in kits so you have everything you need! If you have any questions about them feel free to ask!! I really hope this helps you as much as it’s helped me!

    Wrong #Music

    Sometimes it helps to listen to #Music , and this this one I find #helpful . Yes it’s not overly optimistic, but I have never been able to be wrong in all the places it mentions, so things can be worse.

    Has anyone read any books on managing pain? Seems to be a lot out there. Mindfulness, cognitive therapy, diets, etc. #helpful books

    There seems to be a lot of people in this group, but not a lot of discussion. Sure would like to hear people's journey!

    My sister helped me wash my hair today...

    As someone who loses consciousness a lot, some things that seem simple are actually quite difficult for me to do. Tidying my room is a pretty big one, especially in this horrible humid heat. I often have to actually pay her to do this, though. But if she does a good job of it, I don’t mind all that much.

    I only have two friends in real life (I have many online though). One of them kind of uses me. And the other is a lady that I met through my mum. They worked together. Her name is Debbie. She’s in her 50s but I’ve always gotten on better with people that are older than me. They tend to not have so much drama! Anyway, Debbie is taking me out for a meal at a pub tomorrow. Her treat, she said!

    Debbie knows that I rarely leave the house for anything other than hospital appointments, doctors visits or to collect my medication. She’s a wonderful lady. And I’d be lost without her. I plan on buying her some flowers and a bottle of wine for her kindness.

    So anyway... I picked out a nice new outfit. With nice new shoes. My (hair) roots were showing pretty badly but it’s been 33°C/90°F all day. And I suffer an awful lot in the heat. I can barely do anything. Even getting up to go to the bathroom is a risk!

    My sister (who is 20) and I don’t really get on all that well. She has made several horrible life choices and she’s very childish. But this afternoon she helped me dye and wash my hair ready for tomorrow. And I’m so so grateful... If only we got on like this more often.
