Welcome to a new week! #monday #MondayThoughts #TreatmentresistantDepression #TRD

Happy Monday folks! Now to be honest, I hate Mondays. I have never been a Monday gal. Lol. I don’t schedule appointments unless I must. I don’t usually go out unless I must. It’s just my “thing”. But I’m never not grateful for another chance to be. I hope this week gives you a chance to be. Remember, your accomplishments are yours. Big or small, or nothing at all- it’s always a win. I’m proud of you for being you. ☺️🙏🏾💚

What’s one reason why “staying positive” isn’t always possible?

When you live with a health condition or disability, seemingly harmless phrases like “keep your chin up” or “look on the bright side” can actually be invalidating.

That’s why we want to know the reasons why “staying positive” isn’t always possible for you as a way to remind others that it’s OK to not be OK sometimes (and we shouldn’t feel bad about it!). Let's meet each other with empathy and understanding today. 🤗

Making a list #MondayMotivation

Making a list sometimes needs to just hold some real life basics like getting out of bed, showering, brushing teach.

It’s okay to just achieve sometime like getting out of bed, it’s okay to not get out of bed. You do what you need to & remember what you are ready there are people there for you.

I hope you are all okay as you can be in these crazy times.

My Sylvie Aka Miss Sleepy #CheckInWithMe #MightyPets

Good morning Mighty friends


My cat decided she was going to sleep on her favourite spot . Regardless of the fact I'd placed a huge teddy on the chair. She squeezed her body in there.

This is Sylvie she was born on my lap 6 years ago by her feral Mother Puddy.

I used to look after and foster rescue cats for a cats protection league til I moved last year.

I adore animals and children. I have fostered both.

The damaged the abused. Just like me I take them in.

Anyone else feel irritated by this?

Earlier, I was at work. Lately, I have a different person with me every Monday and this week, I worked with a returning associate. He, like me, has health problems. Since it is not my issue to discuss in detail, I won’t disclose what he has, however, he kind of surprised me today.
Last time we worked together, it was prior to a surgery he had months ago and I had just completed my first 6 month round of Doxycycline for #LymeDisease . He shared his experience with me and I shared my experience with him. When I mentioned my anxiety, an issue I have had but has gotten so much worse and hard (nearly impossible some days) since the Lyme. He tells me to ‘just relax’. To most people, that’s great advice, right? Makes sense. Just relax.
How easy it must be for those who can calm and soothe themselves. It was hard for me to resist the usual ‘oh, wow. Why didn’t I think of that? Silly me. I’ll Just relax...because it just that easy.’
I never knew that even other sick people can be those ‘why don’t you just’ people. Am I being too sensitive? Does anyone else notice these people who think progress is as easy as saying ‘just’? I miss being able to calm myself down whenever I felt nervous. I miss having that kind of control over myself. I do wish it were as easy as saying just. But it so clearly isn’t. If I could calm myself, I’d be calm. Nobody chooses this.
