    Need advice

    Just moved into an apartment. There are only 3 apartments so I thought that would b great. I’ve been living in my own home for last 7 years but things started going wrong and I couldn’t afford to do all the repairs so I lost my home. Then I actually found this apartment I can afford. The neighbor on the right side is very nice and we get along good. The one on the left won’t even speak to me and is calling the landlord about everything. I’m very quiet person unfortunately I don’t do much but watch tv with my dog. She has been able to bark and play all her life-she’s 14. She has really quieted down a lot. I do have a shock collar but with her being so old I hate using it. Now I’m like a prisoner in my home afraid to move or leave house because she will bark when I leave. But I do have camera to watch and she quits when I’m gone. It is really getting my anxiety going bad and my blood pressure is awful 170/89. I never have high blood pressure so I am frightened what will happen.
    What can I do? I’ll never find another apartment this price. I just can’t get rid of my dog I’ve had her entire life. Help??

    Anyone willing to share their experience going on disability? I am really struggling to work and have been unemployed a lot more than I've been employed... I have Bipolar I disorder, Autism, Complex PTSD, generalized anxiety, OCD, ADHD, learning disabilities, a tic disorder, and a personality disorder. Plus eating disorders and addictions that I am working on recovering from. In addition, I am having some physical health concerns and am going through gender transition. No wonder I'm overwhelmed!

    Mind body balance


    Healing and a feeling of personal wholeness only occur when the mind, body, and spirit are in balance. Balancing them all is necessary for a happy and fulfilled life. And in moments of crisis—especially in moments of crisis—it is vital for you to be vigilant in protecting that balance.

    All three are connected: the mind, body, and spirit. Weakness or imbalance in one of these can negatively affect the others. For example, severe emotional stress of the mind can cause high blood pressure and other illnesses in an otherwise healthy body. Similarly, physical illness or injury can cause depression in a usually healthy mind.

    Healing intention is a conscious mental choice to improve your health or the health of another. It includes the expectation of improved well-being and the hope that the desired health goal can be reached. It also includes the understanding of personal meaning in your life and work, even when those two worlds may seem blurred during a quarantine.

    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is BouncingBack. I'm here because this past year has shifted me into a huge 180 turn and I would like to support others as well as be supported. Up until February of this year, I was a long distance runner and an avid exercise enthusiast. Unfortunately, that all stopped when I began to have cardiovascular issues that then became high blood pressure issues. The Drs were unsure what was wrong (as I am 33 and was considered generally healthy) but they put me on meds to control my heart rate and blood pressure. After months, they are finding spinal cord abnormalities and a thyroid issue that needs further evaluation. I can’t run anymore. I thank God I can walk. I am a mom to two beautiful kids. I am a wife and I love my job; I own my own counseling practice and it helps me to spend time helping others. I overcame the grief that came with being a victim of childhood sexual abuse and now I am working on coping with medical issues that are definitely having an impact on my mental health and quality of life.
