As many of us know, too much alone time can allow the committee in our head to create lies, lies and more lines. One of the first “re-train your brain” excercises I was taught was picture a big red stop sign and yell “stop”, in your head, as soon as you catch yourself in negative self-talk and immediately give yourself a loving thought and praise. I still keep this tool strapped in my tool belt. Has anyone tried this, or willing to give it a go? Do you find it effective?

“The tide is coming for all of your sandcastles”

When I first heart this quote I was absolutely horrified. It stuck with me all day but slowly I started to find it quite comforting. It reminded me that feelings pass, that material things mean nothing at the end of the day. The memories stay (good and bad) but everything is transient, the world keeps moving. There is a wiping clean - a reset. It really reasonated and I write it in my journal often. #Abuse #PTSD #positiveaffirmations #ChildhoodSexualAbuse


I’d love some input!

I’m working on an article right now and would love to know... what’s a mantra that you need reminding of sometimes? Could be something specific to you but could also be for any other chronic illness warriors out there.

Example: Never measure your progress by someone else’s ruler!

Thanks for the help y’all!

Bipolar Disorder and Divorce

My partner of 14 years has asked for a #Divorce . Looking for advice from others who have gone through a divorce while managing #BipolarDisorder .

So a little back story... we’ve been separated for a couple months (a result of a hypomanic episode) and about a month ago I admitted myself into to hospital for suicidal ideations. I was there for a few days and since being out I have mostly been alone in my home. Sometimes my son, who is 7, is there. I’ve been doing intensive outpatient therapy 4 days a week for the last 3 weeks since leaving the hospital. So I’ve been dealing with a lot of emotions.

I’ve also been attending a peer support training 5 nights a week. This is to help others in their mental health recovery and substance use recovery.

So my crisis tore down all my walls and I’ve been very vulnerable with my husband and trying to repair the damage while also working on myself. It’s been a rollercoaster with us, going between working on things to not, and back again. He’ll open up about his feelings and then shut down again and run away or avoid. He’s also mostly been living at his parents during this time.

Well, a couple days ago during a conversation he said he just didn’t think he could forgive me for the things I had said to him during my manic episode and that he wouldn’t be able to survive another one. So he ended it.

Looking for #positiveaffirmations and #Advice .
