    I started an Anxiety Journey YouTube Channel. Would mean a lot to get a little support! I’m so nervous !

    Hi there I usually post quotes on a mental health friendly supportive Instagram account, occasionally I journal or blog very rarely on blogs I’ve tried before, but I’ve never ever been brave enough to show my face and actually try a YouTube account D: and not be more anonymous behind the screen supporting. I would really appreciate any love or opinions before I risk getting hate comments or trolls with mental health stigma haha > mental health advocate than 😅😂🤣 people actually see it. But I would love to be able to help someone out there not feel so alone in their struggles or offer hope if they are just beginning their journey or could use some kind words/ experiences

    If anyone could give me a bit of a boost 😂 so I don’t freak out or overthink the fact I actually did this and made it public and it could actually become something meaningful, I appreciate it! But if not :) I’ll do my best to do it myself, thanks! I tried to be brave and just do it instead of only think about it as a new hobby/ outlet.

    My YouTube channel is:

    My Anxiety Journey

    Or was thinking

    Inside My Anxiety Journey, since it’ll be pretty personal ^^ and genuine/ raw :p at times telling my experiences or what it’s like struggling with an invisible illness, physical/ mental.

    Thanks!

    Appreciate any love
    I feel so nervous and embarassed. But actually proud I had the guts to do it D: though I was so back and forth about it.

    Hope I’ll stick to it whether I receive good feedback or not, to actually make a meaningful difference and get more courage to do other things like this with advocacy groups or opportunities.

    PS the 3 views are probably me 😅😂 overthinking and analyzing it too much but trying not too haha 😛 😆. I’m a work in progress lmfao 🤣 lol.

    A really big deal to me, because I’m perfectly fine being open about my experiences and trying to help or relate to others and support them too, but not used to putting it on the internet like that with my face D: and fear the stigma or openness about it it’s so risky hehe but worth it :) in a way. So I hope it’ll be the start of something new and good. Feel free to share if you have any blogs, YouTube accounts or any fun hobbies/ outlets too ! :)

    Also** I’m not posting to promote it, hope it’s allowed here, just needed a little love or support so I don’t back out on my idea 😅😅🥺😭😿💡💖😊😛😆😆😆 because I feel so alone in my experiences sometimes, and don’t want others to feel like that too.

    And be alone struggling.

    the day suddenly turned into a funny beginning

    I came back from the city to spend the weekend at home.
    Today everyone has stuff to do, so I'm alone.
    Coming back from my alone life in the city to be alone again kinda felt a bit disappointing, for a while; at the beginning.

    I was rehearsing my to do list and checking my surrounding, ackowledging the presence of my pets, when I said to myself:
    "Ce, you have spent two years like this, alone at home. Don't you dare telling me you don't know how to engage in self-time".
    Eheh, it suddently has become funny.
    I may be laughing in tiny.

    I.am.alone!

    I'm preparing a 1l kettle of tea, I'm gonna take a shower (when I'll feel ready to, though), fix my hair, I'm gonna try and reply to my penpal's letter, study a bit, take a walk, maybe with my dog, try and take some autumn pictures again, listen to some music and sing along; I have two biscuits and a little bunch of chestnuts to eat and my cats. Plus, I could come up with many more activities, so, yep, I'm finding it funny that for a moment I have been feeling sad at the idea of spending the majority of this day alone.
    Now I can't wait to do all of these stuff while being alone.
    [I'm so used to be alone that this is obviously the reason why I was feeling sad. But between this and stating that I don't know what to do alone there's a huge gap; I wasn't paying attention ^^]

    I'm gonna enjoy myself and any thing I'll have around.

    yAy

    :)

    Hobbies

    I was told I collect cool stuff so I’m sharing what I’ve collected and hung up in my art room. Such as hologram posters, autographs, anime cels and other nick nacks. #Hobby #anime

    What's your #Hobby ?

    This weekend I sang with Sweet Charity Choir for the first time.
    Singing has always been a big part of my life. When I was in Junior school I was the quiet girl who never spoke, until I found my voice through singing in a talent shower. Then I didn't feel invisible anymore.

    Secondary school came and I lost that voice again. I lost it for years.

    During the first lockdown I found Sweet Charity Choir Online. Even though it was online I felt immediately welcome and part of the singing family. It felt amazing to perform with them last Saturday and I'm thankful for them, they've help me recover part of myself from before #FunctionalNeurologicalDisorder that I didn't think I'd find again.

    So tell me, what are your hobbies?!

    Hobby and Therapy

    I started to make candles recently, just for fun but it turned out that it has been a great therapy... I feel less anxious. I guess the waiting for the wax to cool and making some brain storming on the decoration for each candle has given me some patience! #Hobby #candles #anxietyrelief

    Tell me about a hobby you tried out but ended up abandoning #CheckInWithMe

    I am probably the master (or at least one of them) of abandoning hobbies within a few days or weeks of trying them out. I seriously think I like the *idea* of picking out new hobbies than actually sticking to a new one — at least when it’s just me doing them. If I have friends to keep me accountable, then that’s a different story...

    I could name so many crafts I have tried and abandoned *this year* alone. (In my defense, 2020 has felt as though it’s gone on for about 400 years.) Anyway, I’d love to know what hobbies you have tried out but ended up letting collect dust on your shelves.

    P.S. There’s absolutely no shame trying something and stopping for whatever reason: whether it’s because you didn’t like it, your health limits the way you can interact with it or you simply just don’t feel like doing it anymore.

    What is your #Stress reliever?

    I have been trying to do the best I can to help myself learn while at the same time relax. Yes the process of doing something that requires precision is hard, but I find that through a little hard work and a little bit of skill, anything can be possible.

    In case you are curious, this is a soldering kit. What this does is it will take the input of music and it will change the light pattern coming from the bulbs. It’s supposed to be really cool and I can’t wait to complete it!

    Alternative options

    Does anyone else use anything, apart from medication to help with fibromyalgia?
    I've been digital drawing lately. #Fibromyalgia #Hobby #distraction
