    When Life Goals Change

    Needing input.

    What can I do about a verbally and emotionally abusive 19 year old daughter with autism, BPD, ADD, PTSD, depression and anxiety? I have two other children in my home besides her and they both have health issues too. One is disabled. I struggle with multiple chronic illnesses and I am going through a divorce from a narcissistic husband. I also do online college classes and work full time at a retail store. My daughter works there also. Most of the time when she goes through her “episodes” with her moods and emotions we will end up arguing, as the years have passed and she has gotten older her words and responses have become more illogical and mean during those fights and no amount of attempts at reasoning with her ever calms her. It has now reached a point where she started yelling and cussing me at work where both customers and coworkers could hear and see. The coworkers were shocked by it. They had never seen her be anything but bubbly and kind. I was stuck having to explain to one of them why she behaved that way after she stormed off. Not only was it really embarrassing and made me feel belittled by her hurtful words, it worried me that we would get in trouble or fired if one of the coworkers decided to report it to our supervisor. If anyone has any advice that could help me to cope with the ups and downs that come with these conditions, it would be really appreciated! #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder # #Autism #ADD #PTSD #Depression #Anxiety #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Fibromyalgia #EosinophilicEsophagitis #Abuse #MentalHealth #howtocope #ChronicPain #Migraine

    What can I do? #Lesbian #momof2

    Let me start by saying, I grew up in a very strict, conservative Christian household and always felt that I needed to hide who I truly was. I came out as lesbian in November of 2019 and have had my family completely shut me out, some of them even disowning me. It’s been almost a year and there are people I have literally not spoken to since coming out, and it’s so hurtful and discouraging. Does anyone have any advice on how to cope with this or how I can calmly discuss my feelings with my family? Thanks in advance for the support!! #Lesbian #MentalHealthAwareness #BPD #howtocope #seekingsupport 🌈💕👩‍👩‍👦‍👦

    Letting Go Of Anger

    How do you all let go of anger? I've been getting set off by small things and I feel like I'm going back into bad habits. I want to stop but my feelings get the better of me. I think I have to take a time out from people in my life... #anger #Depression #sad #help #howtocope
