    Howdy 👋

    Anyone up tonight? Attempting to sleep in the recliner due to spine issues. Found out today that I’m having surgery on 3/3/23. Ugh….I just had a different spine surgery 6/22/22. This is crazy. I’m so not ready to do this again. #Insomnia #spine #Surgery #tired

    You are enough ..... #MentalHealth #CheckInWithMe #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #Selfcare

    It's so important to remind ourselves that we are enough .When we are struggling or on the harder days and when we are feeling just too overwhelmed , we have to try remind ourselves that we are strong , we're doing great ,we are enough.

    When we have things going on in our lives on top of our own daily struggles wether it's physically,mentally ,emotionally or even all even being able to sometimes just do something which may seem small can be so difficult and challenging but it's progress and we should be proud of ourselves for getting through it or managing to do it no matter how small it may seem.
    After having so much much going on past 6 weeks with my health struggles, getting a new house having to sort it all decorate full thing myself and do all the packing and moving ,then settling us in , trying to get kids settled and into a routine and all the joys of unpacking while feeling like I'm living out of bags and boxes and living in a riot on top on being in pain constantly and my usual daily struggles I'm really trying to remind myself just exactly how much I've done and that I should be proud of myself.
    I am still struggling with believing this all myself ,and knowing im doing my best all the time but I am trying 😊

    We have to take the time for self care to make sure we reset ♥️😊

    #CPTSD Fueled #Insomnia or #happy To Be #Awake ?

    Wow! What a day! I really had fun today, well, yesterday. I went outdoors and enjoyed a day of exploring my local area! This has been a hard task during the past six months. But????? Why I am still awake at 4:00AM? I don’t have a clue. But once again, no worries, I am simply enjoying this quiet time of the day. And I think it is because I am finally embracing my medical leave because of this breakthrough.

    Two days ago, I woke and my mind was flipping thoughts like crazy! I tried to pray but my thoughts kept shifting; this is my new norm I often experience after sustaining my fifth concussion a year ago. But this time, as my thoughts flipped from one thing to the other, I had a thought: write each of your thoughts down. So I did. And within five minutes, I had recorded nearly twenty thoughts!!! And after writing every one my thoughts and feelings, which lasted twenty minutes, I was exhausted but….RELIEVED!!! 😁

    So, I feel as if a new me has emerged from that moment on! The multiple thoughts stemmed from me viewing other’s lives on social media sites. But those thoughts faded after I jotted them down, in real time. Why? Because I realized, once I wrote down each anxious thought, how those thoughts and feelings were all based on comparisons: me comparing my life to posted photos of others, which are really my assumptions of other people’s lives. And those comparisons and assumptions have led me into a maze of fractured emotional thoughts AND anxiety.

    Therefore, shortly after listing those many thoughts, I started enjoying my day. And now, after today’s fun activities, I am still awake because I am not emotionally overwhelmed from wasting time lamenting over my real life compared to posted snapshots of other people’s lives. Remember, those comparisons and assumptions are based on ONE SECOND of a person’s life captured by a camera.😉! But most importantly, those comparisons and assumptions are deceiving and very deceptive.

    So, I will now address such thinking, instantly, before succumbing to the negative emotions that accompany my deceptive assumptions and comparisons. We are not on this earth to live like others. No! Instead, we are here to be our #unique selves impacting lives we encounter with our special personalities, skills, and talents.❤️
