❤️‍🩹Grief Can Feel Like a Prison❤️‍🩹

Grief can feel like you’re trapped in a prison while the rest of the world seems to be wizzing passed without you. It’s important to remember to reach out for help because someone may have the key that helps you set yourself free. 💔❤️‍🩹

A sponsored post on Facebook I literally just found. 🙃🤬

It's hard enough for a person who has a #Miscarriage or an #Abortion and here they are making it worse.. How do they expect us to take care of ourselves and have proper care? Where do we have to go for safety? The answer to that is they don't and they are removing safe places.

Why there aren’t any groups on abortion?

I am Pro choice and I think people who decide to go through with it need support. It’s a tough decision to make regardless of the reasons why they decided to choose that route. Pregnancy is more than bringing a life into this world for many women. Women who choose to not go to term need just as much support as those who go full term and opt for adoption. The stigma needs to be broken as abortion has been going on for centuries before laws around women’s reproductive rights have been enacted. #MentalHealth #Miscarriage #Depression #Anxiety #Loneliness

Hello There! (I'm new 2.0)

I'm a 32 year old married woman and I have two cats. I have many health conditions that overlap symptoms that range from quirky to debilitating. #AutismSpectrumDisorder #AuditoryProcessingDisorder #MajorDepressiveDisorder #ADHD #Hypothyroidism #PremenstrualDysphoricDisorder #PTSD #Abuse #Miscarriage #Grief #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #SuicidalIdeation #SuicidalThoughts #SuicideAttemptSurvivors #GeneralizedAnxietyDisorder
I believe in functional medicine and treat my conditions/symptoms with a combination of herbal teas, natural supplements, prescription medications, spiritual and mental health practices. I'm currently seeking an EDS diagnosis and having trouble finding resources. I want to avoid Florida if I can, but so far it seems like my only option 😑 I'm so happy to talk with people who know what it's like to survive many things and still try to live.

🕯️Wave of Light 2023🕯️

Nothing can ease the pain & devastation that comes with pregnancy & infant loss. Today we remember all the precious souls too wonderful for earth & the loved ones they have left behind.

A week ago today I had a miscarriage. I didn’t know I was pregnant and it was not planned. But this last week has really taken a toll on me. I chose not to do a D&C or take medication to progress it. I chose to do it naturally. I feel numb and so empty.

Mother’s Day for the Yearning & Hurting

Happy Mother’s Day to the moms!

Happy Mother’s Day to those of you who are hurting- from infertility, from broken families, breaking generational traumas, or loss.

1 in 4 women will experience a miscarriage- mommas, Happy Mother’s Day. I know it hurts.

If you’re like me, if you’re living with so many diseases and illnesses that your womb can’t possibly carry a little one and your number of miscarriages is so high it physically hurts to count… momma, I see you.

If you’re like me, and you’re absolutely terrified that one day you’re little rainbow baby might come down with all your illnesses and then what… momma, I hear you.

If you’re like me, and the doctors have told you to simply keep your IUD in because it’s easier than giving yourself a shot in the stomach daily to have the small chance of keeping yourself and your baby alive… momma, you are not alone.

If you are yearning to be a mother this Mother’s Day and it’s just not in the cards… hug your animals close, because you are still valid. Every emotion and tear is valid.

Today, I celebrate Mother’s Day as a dog mom.
Today, I celebrate with my 2 year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Beyla, at Cars and Coffee.

More diagnoses and 4th time Covid.

I haven't journaled, haven't been making art, it's been -34F wind chill days of blizzards, the apartment we moved into had bedbugs and we've been fighting them since before Halloween. I legally lost my ability to drive myself and my 3 kids places with the idiopathic cns hypersomnia and epilepsy diagnoses. This time of year is tricky bc of my miscarriage at Christmas a few years ago. Our two bedroom, 850sq ft. apartment feels claustrophobic and the holidays were sandwiched between two of my kid's birthdays. With out of pocket meds, my expenses are bigger than child support. I can't work right now and spend my days in PT and to attend specialists. Basically, I feel like even with progress, I'm barely keeping it together. And then on December 16th, I caught COVID for the 4th time and I still have it. I am so tired and discouraged and I feel stuck. Yesterday, I finally had enough energy to try to draw. My hands haven't been working right in months, after the last round of seizures, so it made me feel pleased to see this little bit of peace on paper. #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #InterstitialCystitis #Fibromyalgia #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder #majordepressive #Vestibulodynia #idiopahiccnshypersomnia #Epilepsy #DishydroticEczema #Miscarriage #COVID19
