Venting to ones who understand

Today is one of those days where outside of my mind everything is calm but inside my mind a hurricane is out of control. Your just trying to hold on while your mind throws depression, anxiety, and anger. But in my head I am hoping this hurricane kills me because I can't hold on any longer. #Bipolar #manicdepressive


Grieving my therapist

Yesterday, at the end of my session, my therapist very gently told me that our next session would be our last due to the military moving her family to another state. She praised me as her most improved patient and told me she would miss our time together. Her words unfortunately gave me no comfort because my progress was mostly due to her efforts over mine, at my darkest low. I held it together only due to numbness from the news but have had a very hard time since then. Intermittent crying like I am grieving. I've tried to give myself space to grieve but I honestly feel this desperation to not lose her. My issue comes where I would normally talk to HER about these feelings and she would obviously help me, but I feel it may be inappropriate, or unethical?. I do think it would be unneccesary and selfish if I called her and told her how I am struggling. You guys are my go to for things like this. I could use some encouragement, personal related experiences, advice, resources, anything. Thanks humans. #BPD #manicdepressive #dualdiagnosis #Grief #therapyworks #isthishashtagging ?


Manic and mania: exclusive to bipolar or no?

Does anyone else find it suspect if someone refers to themselves being ‘manic’ when this said person does not have a diagnosis of #Bipolar ? I genuinely want to know your thoughts. Does bipolar have dibs on this term? Do other mental illness have this quality? Or is the term #Mania inherently a bipolar phenomenon? #BP #manicdepressive


Art, stories and taking over the world

My name is Gitta Mikk and I am proud of my mental illnesses. I am an artist and a writer and a brat. At least according to my mother.

I’m just trying to recruit a band of awesome crazy badass neurodivergent weirdos who will read my stories and then come follow me in my quest to establish a dominant but gentle rule over the planet.
Because we definitely deserve a chance to rule.

I’ll be posting cheeky/semi-humorous stories that highlight the unique parts of Mental Health that touch my own life in a personal way and sharing experiences that I think are not uncommon for people with mental illnesses to experience in general.

I will write and blog about my art as well because it is rooted and themed in neirodivergence! (We all love some pretty art right??)

I’ll also likely post some random thoughts as they pop into my head to remind everyone to follow me if they would like to be a part of the coming revolution and join my Neurodivergent matriarchal reign.

Follow MEEE my children!!

relationship tornado

my mind has been going haywire the last month. the relationships i have i no longer want. i dont know how to comunicate this without changing my number snd deleting social media - almost like dissapearing.
i cant handle the thought of hurting or letting anyone down even when i am this unhappy.
where do i go and what do i do?
i feel like im drowning. i wish i was.
i wish it would all dissapear and no one cared.

Manic AND Depressive Episodes

Something I struggle with a lot is having a manic episode and a depressive episode at the same time. I feel so much negative emotion and I desperately crave creating art to express, my mind spinning at a million miles a minute with ideas, but I have no motivation. It’s frustrating. I don’t know if anyone can relate but it happens to me a lot.

I used to be much better about expressing feelings and I had a great desire and the motivation to. The painting in this post is one I did when I was 13, for example. But as I’ve grown older, that motivation has left and I feel unable to paint, draw, write like I used to.

how do i deal with becoming randomly sad and then feeling like i’m a burden to people who care about me? #Depression #Anxiety #manicdepressive

i could be having a great day and then all of a sudden i’m sad. it could be something small like my bf not wanting to hang out today and then i feel like he doesn’t love me anymore or want anything to do with me. when all he says is something that is totally a valid reason why he can’t hangout. i begin to feel like a burden to him and then when i get sad i feel like he doesn’t want to hear or or deal with me
