    Teeny Tiny Itty Bitty Victories

    Today my partner said sometimes it’s hard to be gloomy or quiet around me when I’m going through a hellish mental health breakdown….and when I asked why, she said, “because you don’t take it out on me.” And that felt like a win. Like progress, from my other relationships and it made me happy. So, I just wanted to share.

    Other tiny happies from the day; I walked a yorkie around the block in a stroller, I bought a mousepad at Staples, I ate no less then 4 pieces of Pizza Hut stuffed crust pizza. #PizzaHut #smallvictories #TheLittleThings #Mentalbreakdown #Partner #KeepOn #StillTruckin

    Happy #Valentines Day! #Spoonie #spouse #Partner #Love

    This Valentines day I would like to give a shout out to the able bodied partners who choose to stay in the muddy, the ugly, the uncomfortable, the depressive, the unstable, the frustrating, the confused, the pain-filled, the numerous hospital visits, the side effects of medicines, the new diagnosis, the physically challenged, the I give-up on life, the I can't leave bed, the I can't cook or do chores, the chronic illness life that was handed to us. We may not say it many times but thank you. ♥️♥️♥️

    Thank you for the way you serve us wholeheartedly, for your patience with us, for making us smile and laugh, for giving us something happy to look forward to, for taking us to numerous hospital visits, for buying medicine for us, for dealing with the side effects of the medicines, for doing chores on our behalf, for showing us love in ways we didn't even think we could experience being chronically ill. We see you. We appreciate you. We are eternally grateful for you. And we love you! ♥️♥️♥️

    Anyone looking for a #friend ? #Partner? #Love?

    In this community, we all oftentimes feel alone, unlovable, misunderstood, etc. Well forget all those neurotypical ppl in the world that make us feel any way other than loved.. How about we love on each other? #Depression #Anxiety #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Autism #MentalHealth #BipolarDepression #SocialAnxiety

    Stress to Chill to PAIN

    So I’ve been really stressed for over a week because I’m a supply teacher and with all the schools shut (sort of) in the UK, I didn’t know what I was going to do for money... fortunately I qualify for the 80% pay scheme but I only found out Friday night... so I stopped being so stressed and tense. Great for my mental health but apparently awful for my physical health! I’m in so much pain! So awake at 5am in no sleep, taken tramadol which was USELESS, watching criminal minds and practically bathing in heat cream. FUN. My partner is being so lovely though, making me hot water bottles and rubbing my back in heat cream and not moaning when my tossing/turning/tv wakes him up. Even though he’s knackered from work (NHS specialist biomedical scientist). Love him so much, even after 7 years ❤️ #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #NHS #Pain #Sleep #heatcream #Heat #Crying #Partner #Love #Stress #Lockdown

    #Love #Understanding #Partner #Communication

    This resignates so deeply with me. I’m sure we all have some deep, dark baggage we carry that makes us scared to be #Vulnerable to our partners but imagine the weight lifted off our shoulders once we allow ourselves to be understood deeper, accepted and loved even more?
