Christmas is Ending

The #Holidayseason is coming to a close. But a new #Season is coming! ❄️☃️🌬️🌨️ While many places are covered in snow, Florida was covered with chilly weather and frost.

Today is a lot warmer than it was days before, but by Friday it will be 80°. We had weather in the 30's and 40's which is extremely cold for Florida. We have had to cover previous plants and other vegetations too.

It's scary but I am purely knowledgeable when it comes to how Florida always tries to fight to stay warm. I wonder about things going on with weather and #globalwarming and how things relate to my #MentalHealth .

I am looking forward to #2023 because I know that it is one month closer to my birthday month. I tend to celebrate Mardi Gras and my Birthday all together because my birthday is in February. Mardi Gras at Universal begins in February and usually lasts about 2 months. They have parades and dancing and beads and foods. It's a Family Friendly event. That's why I like it.

Christmas this year was a little different. Have you ever experienced the idea of having #holidayexpectations that were just unrealistic? We do not live in a lifetime movie. This year, I had very little of that, and instead just had a good time.

How about you? #howareyou ?

Hey All.

Today is a day which I only work about 4 hours. It's also a day that I incredibly wish that I could have just stayed home. {Who doesn't? Unless you really, really, really, really like your job. Humm?} Anyway ... I am hoping that this little 4 hour evening shift goes smoothly and quickly for me. My new schedule has been bouncing all over like that of a small mouse circling around it's little running wheel. I am here and there and then home and in bed. My mind is not sure what it is supposed to do.

Eventually I would like to get a normal schedule. But I think, in order to request such a thing, I have to be employed 90 days. Recently as I have been sick, there were some major changes in my life. I have been sick for a whole month. They thought it was flu and then I was treated for it. Flu stayed and I stayed sick and it transitioned into bronchitis.( No idea!) But being #sick for a whole month is crappy.

It's gonna be alright. The meme for this post for me should say "when you've been at work for a 10 minutes, and then you look at the clock and it says one minute." LOL! 🤪 but I hope it made you #Laugh a bit.

How are you doing???
Take Care Guys.

A little about me

Hi Everyone,

My name is Klaudia, I am from Hungary. I have bipolar depression. I have been diagnosed in 2011. It was really hard at the beginning, when I didn't know what my problem was. It is still quite heavy but at least I know I have a condition - which doesn't mean that I'm less worthy than others.

I wanted to join because I would like to read your stories and I would like to share mine.

How was your day? Did you survive it or did you even find something good in it? 💙 #BipolarDepression #mystory #howareyou

The dreaded "How are you"?

What do you do?

Do you lie to give the person asking what they want to hear? Do you tell the truth, and face the uncomfortable silence that comes when the person asking, then doesn't know what to say? Do you avoid the question altogether by retreating, and avoiding human interaction?

Who knew 3 little words could be so incredibly impactful.

Well, I can suggest that I'm a lucky person

How have you been? I hope you're doing well🖤. If you're as lucky as I am, please share your experience so I don't feel so lonely. I know it's pretty selfish , but isn't it funny how life is making fun of us? 🙃

first the overdose is not strong enough to kill me, but strong enough to deprive me of sleep and appetite for two days,then a sudden horrible squeezing pain in the chest, which passes and comes over and over again . The pain is strong enough to make me muffle my cry. Me, a person who can tolerate the pain from a pancreatitis attack? And now I'm sick.
will life surprise me in the coming days?

Does it really matter what people think of you? #Selfesteem

I made a lot of wrong decions during times of trial. In my life I judged people and spread rumors about people. Eventually things turned around and I made my own nightmare by having rumors spread about me. I've been involved with personal branding So now I've drawn all this attention to myself. So I'm like having an overload of social anxiety since covid started. I'm trying to get used to the new restrictions and try to learn how to be in public again. How's everyone holding out? # #SocialAnxiety #COVID19 #llness #mental #coping #howareyou #LetsTalkFND

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. ⭐️

How's everyone doing?

Currently in the process of reinventing myself! Over the last few days, I've been struggling a little bit. Intrusive thoughts, feeling down, struggling to do the simplest of things. Today I decided to fight back! Got showered, dressed and went for a walk! That's about as productive as I have been over the last few days!

So you's know how I'm doing, what about yourselves? Are you okay?

My typical response to “How are you?” is...

How would you finish this sentence? Maybe you’re an “I’m fine” or an “I’m good” person, or perhaps you usually respond with, “I’m hanging in there!” (One of our personal favorites. 😉)

However you typically answer, we recognize how tough this seemingly innocent question can be. But here at The Mighty, we always want to know how you REALLY are. We promise. 💪
