    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is ladypicassa. I'm here because i struggle everyday with trying to physically keep up with all the stuff that needs to be done after i wake up. Chrinic fatigue, arthritis in my hands, stiff sore legs,hip,back. I am totally depressed over the 3 miserable relationships i have to look back on. I am single and alone. Life looks very grim now. I wanted a relationship with a guy that would love me and keep me forever , treat me kindly and be caring and respectful. I get diagnosed with probably MS in 1995 and my husband said he doesn't want a sick wife for his life. That one statement changed my heart forever. Changed how i see my self and i feel angry. I struggle to be happy because i feel stuck at the level i am at now and i feel there will never be a " happily forever after" #stress #lacunar Infarction ( silent stroke, Mini stroke)# Diabetes

    Working again

    I'm in bed from pain, so thought I'd catch up here. This is one of the latest paintings I've done. I've started doing portrait commissions again too! Such a big step for me since i haven't in over a decade! I'm already in over my head, but I'm very happy to be working again. 😁 Thinking of myself last year this time, stuck in bed almost all the time and so depressed. It's just something I never thought I'd be able to do again. Thank you to all the mighty cheerleaders that have helped me to start living again! 💙 #FailedBackSurgery #spinalcordstimulator #SpinalStenosis #BackPain #neckpain #ChronicMigraines #PsoriaticArthritis #Depression #MiniStroke #AnkylosingSpondylitis

    If I Was Independently Wealthy, I'd Pay to Have This Blown-Up with Dynamite!


    *Possible trigger warning*

    At nearly 50, I had zero desire to relive my childhood sexual, physical, or emotional abuse. I had tucked it away and appeared "normal" to people in my personal and professional world. Then I was triggered by a family member going through a manic episode and decided to call me...

    Long story short, I ended up relocating to be near my dysfunctional-but-functional family as a mother with 2 boys. Sadly, mom was more than thrilled to start the rage, anger, cold-shoulder, passive-aggressive, hate-love hell I endured as a child and it was surreal watching her unravel in an effort to make me react - she was unsuccessful in that way but I imploded and my health is now horrible. I have dizzy spells, had a mini-stroke where I fell and broke my nose, and have a pocket of fluid built up above my left ear.

    I didn't realize the evil that an abuser is capable of until I got some space, pulled every message and document, and stared at her intentional cruelty.

    Today I am posting these pictures - we lived on 10 acres and mom limited our family so we really only saw her mother, my grandmother. But when we DID have to drive to town, mom's rage could only survive about 10 minutes. This is an old "weigh station" off the highway. She'd yell at us because we were expected to be silent in the car (even though we rarely went anywhere and it was exciting) and then she'd pull over to this weigh station, rip me out of the car, and beat me. Moving back to the area and driving past it made me wish I had enough $$$ to get permission and a contractor to blow that place up!! That way no other narcissistic abusive mom could get the same idea. I'd hope that people would call 911 if they EVER SAW this. My mom deserves to be in jail for what she's done/does. Maybe someday justice will be served on these "sweet appearing" grandmas?! I pray I see the day.#endabuse #enddomesticviolence #endnarcissisticcontrol

    Reeling from news

    Last week my good friend nearly had a mini-stroke on Monday (I had a stroke in 1994 and still recovering) and I’m still processing that and this morning I learn that my mental health worker that I’ve had since before the pandemic is leaving 😩. Oh yes and I’m also awaiting my monthly cheque from the gov’t which should come today. I’m just in shock right now and need some support. I just started to get to know her better and this happens. #Loss #change

    feeling it #artheals

    I haven't written in a week, it was too much to feel.I left the procedure last week feeling aweful resolve, no communication other than If you have CHF. If? But don't be anxious or upset over our discharge summary.I expect too much.I expect communication and answers to my husband tells me I only want the answer I want. That hit hard, I feel completely misunderstood by everyone.Why is that? I do not have bad intentions when I try to articulate how I asking because I'm confused, lost and don't know or understand how and where things went haywire. I cant accept "I don't know" as an answer. That is not answer.I know the last three years has been hell on everyone, but Im really lost at where its gone and how this had gotten so out of control. I know I've been sick for more than four years without even knowing anything was wrong.I thought it was stress, my work, my relationship or lack of. Loosing my father in law, my dearest friend getting leukemia, getting assaulted twice, a perfect storm of chaos.But every mini stroke or bleed, I go into weekss of trying to get any part of me back and it just keeps back at day two feeling good physically, but now my mind starts cycling to what happened, why am I like this now, what did I say, or miss or something rewarding up now? I no longer can ask without it boiling over now.
