Here for you

I just wanna throw out there that if you, yes you, ever need/want to talk to someone, please message me. I am not judgemental and most likely I will understand...benefit (and sometimes a curse lol) of being an empath of sorts with a big heart. I don't want any of you to hurt, especially alone. I am also an intercessory prayer warrior so if you want/need prayer over your situation, let me know and you got it. We all gotta stick together! #HereForYou #youarenotalone #MightyTogether #Prayer

In case someone needs to hear this today!

Saw this today. “Today was a Difficult Day," said Pooh.

There was a pause.

"Do you want to talk about it?" asked Piglet.

"No," said Pooh after a bit. "No, I don't think I do."

"That's okay," said Piglet, and he came and sat beside his friend.

"What are you doing?" asked Pooh.

"Nothing, really," said Piglet. "Only, I know what Difficult Days are like. I quite often don't feel like talking about it on my Difficult Days either.

"But goodness," continued Piglet, "Difficult Days are so much easier when you know you've got someone there for you. And I'll always be here for you, Pooh."

And as Pooh sat there, working through in his head his Difficult Day, while the solid, reliable Piglet sat next to him quietly, swinging his little legs...he thought that his best friend had never been more right."
A.A. Milne

Sending thoughts to those having a Difficult Day today and hope you have your own Piglet to sit beside you 🧡

I’m not complaining, I’m asking for a hug. #compassion #Emotionalsupport #ChronicIllness #Anxiety #JudgementFreeZone #ChronicPain

Those who you spend time with, those who care, those who say they are there for you don’t show up when you need them most. You reach out, you say what you’re going through to family and friends and a lot of times...crickets...

I personally can’t relate to those who choose to ignore, choose to not acknowledge, and choose to not give the support and love that I deserve. How tough is it to say something as simple as “I’m so sorry you’re going through this.”?

I get, it gets old to hear the bitching and complaining. I’ve been on both sides. I know what it’s like to get those crickets and to see the people who I care about the most get even more crickets. What I have experienced to matter the most is to be acknowledged and to be seen.

That is why I have decided to join The Mighty community. To be able to express myself judgement free and not get crickets. I want to be able to do the same for you all and be the person that you know cares. I’d like to exchange crickets for hugs, for comments, for support! I’m acknowledging that WE ALL DESERVE not to have crickets. You have been heard. #nocrickets #acknowledgement #Support #HereForYou #Spoonies

How are you really (truly + unapologetically) doing?

I often find that it’s hard to share how I really, truly feel without a cloud of burden or shame hanging over my head. So today, I’m going to work on being open and honest about where I’m at — the good and the bad — without beating myself up about it. I hope you’ll do the same and #CheckInWithMe below! 💙

Right now, my heart swells with just as much gratitude as it does sadness. I struggle to sit with feelings that are on such opposite ends of the spectrum, but I’m reminding myself that I’ve done it before and I can do it again (and feelings are a sign that I’m human). Bella has also been sick this week, which has been a bit of an emotional rollercoaster on my part, but she’s doing better now so I'm thankful for that! I also finally made a hair appointment for this weekend (operation: remove the dread from the back of my head, commence!). I’m proud of myself for that because I tend to deprioritize taking care of me. ⭐️

#finishing what I was writing oh my purse is just sitting on the couch but my wallet is missing we have looked over the whole house by my husband‘s computer sometimes he takes it their to get a number but he puts it rhight back not anywhere around I asked God and prayer to please help me find it pointed out to me or tell me where it could be I gave it to him in faith because I believe in him because I know every bone in my body and spirit is with him and if anybody can tell me where it’s at it’s God a put it in his hands my husband went to bed and said oh maybe tomorrow I’ll remember I don’t want it from my husband to look around again I believe in God and my faith I gave it to him he will let me know by tomorrow where it’s at if it left this house or if he accidentally threw it away I will now by the faith in God is a good God.


for the last few days I haven’t been feeling good I’ve been feeling depressed and tonight I’m feeling really depressed and down I went to my purse to find my wallet to get something out of it and my wallet wasn’t in there. My husband sometimes goes in my wallet to get one of my cards out of it to use on the computer to buy some thing or to get a number off some thing but he usually puts back. I went to the doctors office about three weeks ago and they asked for my Medicare card I gave it to them actually my husband gave it to them because he had it and then he gave it back to me to put it in my wallet and I put it back in my purse when I went back to see the doctor he was holding my purse my phone and when I came out I didn’t have to pay anything so I just came out and we got in the car and left and came home and I haven’t been in my wallet then actually I’m wrong I did go on my Wallet one time to look for an account Number for my Visa card because I needed it and I looked in my wallet didn’t see it so I put my wallet back in my purse and I had to call to get my account number they sent it by mail he brought it to me and I just stuck the whole envelope in my purse I did not know if I saw the wallet in there I don’t remember but my checkbook was in there because I just took it out we have search the whole house and we cannot find my wallet my wallet has everything in it there is a picture of my son when they took his first picture in the hospital that I gave to my father he died from cancer when he was 52 sorry 53 and he wrote behind there my sons name and when he was born and he put it in his wallet when he passed away my mom gave it back to me and that’s the last thing I have part of my father is that writing behind my son‘s picture and that’s killing me my wallet that means I lost a big part of me If my wallet is not found. I hardly ever take my wallet out of my purse because I do not go anywhere but the doctor because I’m agoraphobia and I do not go outside I do not go to any other stores or anything my husband buys everything and brings at home I walk with the Walker because I have a bad knee can barely walk on it I need surgery but I won’t get it because I had surgery on the other one and they messed it up so really I have two bad knees my whole life is messed up I have anxiety PTSD the depression and I can’t i’m like yes I’ve been living like this for 10 years the only way I have made it this far is because of God he has been holding me up and he will not let me fall he is helping me to get through all of this now I’m so upset and I can’t find that wallet when my Purse just sits on the couch right across from me where I said I really don’t do anything because of my knees and if I use it my wallet I walk right back over and put it in there’s no place for me to go I do not take it in the bathroom I do not to take it in my room do not take any where else I never take it out of my purse and less I need some thing in me sittig

On a scale of “I’m feeling fantastic” to “this is the most pain I’ve ever been in,” how are you doing today?

Whether you’re experiencing mental, emotional or physical pain, tell us how you’re doing (because we care about you!).

If you have the energy, send an encouraging note to other Mighties who may be hurting.❤️

5 years since...

I just realized from commenting on a post that it's been 5 years since I came out of rehab for the second and last time.

I rarely think about how long it's been. Wish I felt more proud about it but I struggle a lot with dissociation and actually don't have any particular feeling about that or other accomplishments.

Anyone want to share something about addiction? Are you in recovery? Do you keep track on how long its been? What do you feel about where you are in your addiction/recovery now (either if your in it or gotten out)?

Remember that your strong and can do anything you put your mind to. I'm here if you need to talk 💜
