Things have been rough

Things have been changing so much. Everyday is so tiring. I've been making so much progress with my diagnosis journey yet everytime I have a small set back I doubt everything. Like what if I never have a positive test result you know. I just want this to end especially since others things in my life keep going sour.

Does anyone have any advice on how to manage my diagnosed depression during this journey for a diagnosis.

A thought. A story. A reason.

I was 19 when I was pregnant with my first child. I made the choice to keep my baby and find a way to raise them alone. The second one I couldn't.. I feel grief. I wonder about all the what if's. I still cry. I still scream. I still feel guilt, but I made the best decision I could for myself and my child that I already had. They didn't need to lose their mother from complications. I got PPD with both of them.

Good morning/afternoon everyone! Health-care looks different for everyone and it should be accessible to everyone. No matter what you appear to be.

A Bipolar Girl Having Covid for Christmas

This Christmas was a little rough. Getting covid five days before Christmas ruined a lot of plans. Instead of baking cookies with the family or visiting my grandparents, I was stuck at home. It was rather lonely not being able to spend time with anyone which was what I was really looking forward to. So, here are a few things I did to keep the loneliness and bipolar depression away:

Sleep - I mean, come on, I had covid. Watch my favorite Christmas movies/shows/specials - There are many of these on the internet for free. Talk with friends and family - Just because I couldn't go out and see them doesn't mean I couldn't interact with them. Self-Care - Making sure I was taking my meds, eating right, and staying hydrated. Then, I also added a little something extra like doing my nails and cuddling with my pets. There's always something to do that can help with your physical and mental health. Hope these things help you like they helped me. Stay well this holiday season!

I am a single mother. I understand this. I lived this. There are a million different reasons. It should be universal health care.

We are in need of a new co-leader for MHC to encourage, empower, & support our members. I make a APPEAL to current members - PLEASE read below!

We are currently looking for a new Co-Leader for the Multiple Health Challenges group. We are growning fast and just passed 2,200 members. This is really exciting to me, however to be honest, I have been very frustrated that there is less activity recently and as our membership grows steadily the number of comments & replies has actually diminished. Our old co-leader Chris is no longer with the group and we need to have others step up and make up for her commitment to regularly respond to posts and comments. This means a collective effort from everyone in the group! I have had numerous layers of serious physical & mental health challenges recently and not been as active as I would like in order to step back and focus on self-care. This is a time having another co-leader to pick up the slack is essential!

My last post about hobbies was actually first posted 16 months ago (when we had at least 1,000 less members) and it got over 200 ❤️ & 👍and 100 comments then! It got only ONE this time. And Laura made a great post about disability after that and it got only two responses as well. When new members open up and post to introduce themselves and then get very little response that is even worse. I fear that new members will see this and not be active moving forward. This is OUR group everybody and it functions best when members support other members. We all have our varied health histories and with them the knowledge and wisdom we’ve garnered along the way! PLEASE let’s share these with each other. Without this empathy and understanding this group is falling short of what I first envisioned when I started the group and what it’s capable of.

For a co-leader I am looking for someone to welcome new members, comment or respond to posts and other comments & replies, and make new posts to the group. It is important for the group to have distinctly different voices to support people because people might relate more to either of us. What is a really good situation is if we both respond to the same posts, welcome new members from different perspectives and provide voices for people that are accessible and relatable. There is a commitment needed that you monitor activities on the group regularly and can respond pretty quickly.

Offering your own posts provides more content for the group. I can assist and support by offering to look at your new posts for feedback and editing before you post if you would like, will comment on your posts to get the responses going to best support your efforts, and I can help finding memes or images.

I look at potential leaders' history of posts and/or comments that have helped and supported others in the past. Willingness to be honest and open about your own health challenges is crucial to best support people.

You will get access to the Community Leaders group and your name will have a “Group Leader” tab next to it up top on your comments and responses so I think people pay attention especially to your activity and wisdom shared from your personal experience. Would you consider joining me on this journey? Let’s have a DM chat to discuss this! Thanks for considering taking on this role!

I passed out and hit my head a month ago.

They said TBI and Brain Bleed.

MRI and CatScan ,EEG, Xrays, EKG showed no Cause.

I have Headaches every day.

My main problem is I have Suicidal Ideation every day.

I don't have a plan or want to follow through but the Thoughts are Annoying.
