#checkinonme #Stress #post surgery

Its been 19 years since I experienced continuous rapes, sexual assault, humility and flashbacks. I want to get better... how to be comfortable with yourself after assault, stop flashbacks. Been to therapy didnt help. Now 3 months ago I had brain surgery. I mustnt have stress or strain for safe recovery.

How do you cope when you’re super happy and then suddenly a bad thought makes you depressed?

Had a bunch of fun today went to cat shelter to volunteer, went for a super long walk like 1 h or 1h 30 mins kind of. Hung out with a friend at the cat shelter 🐱 and then went to get some yummy Korean type of food at Krunch Chiken or something it’s called. Then went kayaking with my mom and dad even though they fight a lot lol. It was fun and really peaceful with the beautiful nature, I’m usually not this active at all but then suddenly one bad thought 💭 or one little thing kinda snaps you from all of that, I guess cuz im a little stressed out about all the to do things I need to do these few weeks and trying to get on top of it and not procrastinate etc.

But im trying I guess maybe I feel scared like oh im too happy and not anxious or depressed lately and something bad will happen and take it all away, or it’s too good to be true and soon I’ll be worse again. Idk I guess it’s hard you can’t always be happy or calm and it’s ok to accept sad emotions too it’s a balance of it all.

I started an Anxiety Journey YouTube Channel. Would mean a lot to get a little support! I’m so nervous !

Hi there I usually post quotes on a mental health friendly supportive Instagram account, occasionally I journal or blog very rarely on blogs I’ve tried before, but I’ve never ever been brave enough to show my face and actually try a YouTube account D: and not be more anonymous behind the screen supporting. I would really appreciate any love or opinions before I risk getting hate comments or trolls with mental health stigma haha > mental health advocate than 😅😂🤣 people actually see it. But I would love to be able to help someone out there not feel so alone in their struggles or offer hope if they are just beginning their journey or could use some kind words/ experiences

If anyone could give me a bit of a boost 😂 so I don’t freak out or overthink the fact I actually did this and made it public and it could actually become something meaningful, I appreciate it! But if not :) I’ll do my best to do it myself, thanks! I tried to be brave and just do it instead of only think about it as a new hobby/ outlet.

My YouTube channel is:

My Anxiety Journey

Or was thinking

Inside My Anxiety Journey, since it’ll be pretty personal ^^ and genuine/ raw :p at times telling my experiences or what it’s like struggling with an invisible illness, physical/ mental.

Thanks!

Appreciate any love
I feel so nervous and embarassed. But actually proud I had the guts to do it D: though I was so back and forth about it.

Hope I’ll stick to it whether I receive good feedback or not, to actually make a meaningful difference and get more courage to do other things like this with advocacy groups or opportunities.

PS the 3 views are probably me 😅😂 overthinking and analyzing it too much but trying not too haha 😛 😆. I’m a work in progress lmfao 🤣 lol.

A really big deal to me, because I’m perfectly fine being open about my experiences and trying to help or relate to others and support them too, but not used to putting it on the internet like that with my face D: and fear the stigma or openness about it it’s so risky hehe but worth it :) in a way. So I hope it’ll be the start of something new and good. Feel free to share if you have any blogs, YouTube accounts or any fun hobbies/ outlets too ! :)

Also** I’m not posting to promote it, hope it’s allowed here, just needed a little love or support so I don’t back out on my idea 😅😅🥺😭😿💡💖😊😛😆😆😆 because I feel so alone in my experiences sometimes, and don’t want others to feel like that too.

And be alone struggling.

My Anxiety Journey

Hi I struggle with anxiety, and mental health/ depression, I know what it’s like to face struggles and stigma, I’m not perfect I feel alone, guilt and shame, I am a work in progress. I get better, and then I get worse, life rotates it’s normal. But if you need any source of hope, inspiration to reach out for help or anything you could find helpful here. I’m more than happy to. I’m not a professional I am just trying a new hobby and outlet hoping to help others like me feel less alone with invisible illness it be physically, mental health/ emotional or so on forth. Even if you don’t struggle I hope I can be a reminder that things do get better, and it’s okay to not always have everything put together. Life can be hard but it can be wonderful too. I wish you all the best on your journey, but this channel is about my anxiety Journey so far, so it’ll be quite deep and personal, but I hope if anyone ever sees this it may be of help. You are not alone. You matter too. Love - Laura O

Special Item

OK. This is probably weird but I am giving it a try. So say you are going to a place, any place, doesn't matter, and you can't bring people or pets, so you have one item you are allowed to bring with you. What would your special item be? Have some fun with this, I hope! #Friends #Friendship #friendships #MightyTogether #MentalHealth #FamilyAndFriends #New #lonely #alone #NoOneFightsAlone #StrongerTogether #Together #SocialInteraction #social #wellness #EmotionalHealth #Health #relate #Chat #Share #post #safe #SafeSpace #Connections #Positivity #positive #Fun #Mindful #Mindfulness #Kindness #ActsOfKindness #ActOfKindness Self-esteem Self-worth #self -love #Confidence #Life #Lifestyle

Saying Hello...

Hey! My name is Mandy. I am 49 years old. I have post herpetic neuralgia (PHN) from an internal shingles outbreak over 7 years ago. (I did have a small rash but nothing equal to the pain.) I have lived with severe chronic nerve pain ever since all over my left side, front & back and top to bottom. The medicine, the medical world on top of my own emotions and just total loss has been crazy!
I am so thankful to still be here and that I have some familial sulport. I am starting to find ways to combat the anxiety and depression that i denied for so long. I've also been denied disability so many times. I've tried to work 3 separate times...at just about 2 year intervals. Still, even with medicine additions, everything I do, I pay for in pain. I will not give up though! It takes all I can to take care of my basic needs but I am thankful for even just that. I spent almost 2 years totally bedridden. I now live in a camper on my dad's land. I am now able to go spend the night at my daughter's house and spend time with my grandson occasionally. I have been able to work on the artwork I so love & it has been therapy for me.
And though these things are enjoyed VERY sparingly due to this monster pain, these things bring me great joy. They make me smile just thinking about it. I do want to do more as i feel my contribution to life is so minimal but i push those thoughts away & try to make the time i do get special.
I have followed The Mighty for several years now. I have written so much in my journals for all of these years and have never shared it ni feel like its time and this is the place. #PHN #post Herpetic Neuralgia #chronic pain #chronic nerve pain
