I'm trying.

Sometimes, I just want to just scream this out at the top of my lungs. I'm t r y i n g. I swear to God I'm trying. I know that I've been on edge and irritable lately. I know that I haven't been the most pleasant to be around lately. I know that I've been short with others and have distanced myself. And I'm not trying to make any excuses, but trying to heal from past trauma and face my demons is so goddamn difficult and horrendous some days. So it comes out towards others at times even though I try to do my best to not take my issues out on others. It still happens sometimes. So just know I'm trying my damnedest to heal and be a better me.

My tattoos and the story behind them

I wanted to share with you my tattoos and the stories behind them. I am really interested to hear your tattoo stories as well so please share yours too with the hastag #mytattoos

-this is my first ever tattoo. I got it when I was 16 years old. It's in my mothers handwriting and it's the last two lines of my favorite poem. The poem is called Invictus and it's written by William Ernest Henley in 1875. He wrote it while he was in the hospital treating tuberculosis. It's a survivor poem. I read it first when I was about 12 years old and I thought it was so strong and powerful. It reminds me every day that I am in control of my own life and how I react to things that I can not control.

Boundaries + Peace — A Struggle

This isn't specifically related to chronic illness, but it's a big struggle I'm dealing with right now (or trying to).

I keep letting my boundaries be pushed in order to keep the peace.

Am I just "too sensitive" like my parents claim?

They often times make "jokes" about how I need to talk less, ask if I have an off button, my stepmom has referred to me as my dad's "scamming daughter", my dad has told me I'm easy to make fun of and my stepmom has told me before that she can't blame all the families issues on me anymore because there were still arguments despite me not living with them anymore. She makes "jokes" also saying to go play in traffic or about locking me in a closet with duct tape on my mouth but when I get upset they tell me all parents make jokes like that, that I'm too sensitive and need to lighten up and stop taking things so seriously. They also claim I'm mentally ill if I get mad at them yet they also think I "subconsciously fake" issues. I don't know how to feel about this because I've heard this is emotional abuse. Are they right though? #pleaseanswer #EmotionalAbuse #Parents #sensitivity #personal


I'm 21 and have no idea what to do with my life. I thought I wouldn't even be alive this long honestly. How do you live a life you didn't want?

This is me ...

It’s easy to forget just how unique each of us is. In a world where we are taught we should conform, try to remember this ...
