Others have it worse-and-your pain is valid!YES! I always need this reminder! And I DO know more from living through my journey! I think many of us do

I found this a few days ago ...I really needed to read it and process it ... I love all of them … many share how I try to live my life! The second to last one really rang especially true for me right now - it is a great reminder to be gentle and kind to myself as I accept things as they are …its a hot topic for me right now! I just really beat myself up about it, journaled about it, and talked about it twice to a good friend and my therapist just in the last week.

How I have had pain much worse before during my dark days in the past but currently have friends and family who have it worse than me right now, that I see that and say I should be able to handle this current pain because I’ve survived those times and dealt with that higher level of pain too.

But I have to remind myself that when I did go through those (life threatening) experiences in my past I was totally dependent on others, had no responsibilities, nothing to worry about, my only focus was just staying alive! Now I live alone, lead an active and productive life (mostly) and the current pain still affects me day to day! Bottom line, I have to consistently remind myself it's all relative...And valid! #ChronicPain #ChronicIllness #PeripheralNeuropathy #Migraine #VestibularMigraine #BackPain #neckpain #PainManagement #PTSD #Depression #Anxiety #BipolarDisorder #Bipolar1Disorder #BipolarDepression #MentalHealth #mentalhealthwarrior #MentalHealthHero #Addiction #AddictionRecovery #SOBER #HIVAIDS #happy #resilient #positiveattitude #fighter #overcome

Are you resilient?

It's been 4 months since my boss demoted me, cut my pay, and created a new position That I now report to and promoted one of my colleagues to that new position. In a conversation about it she made an offhand remark:

"Some people are just more resilient."

I don't know why that one statement has such with me, bothers me so much. I pretty sure she was implying that I'm not resilient. She knows about my physical and mental health issues, about the sexual assault trauma I've experienced, but I don't think she understands.

Synonyms for #resilient include #strong #tough #bouyant and #irrepressible . I think the fact that I keep going despite what I've been through proves I'm all of those things.

What about you? Has anyone who has no real clue what you've been through accuse you of not being resilient enough? Don't listen to them. I believe you are!

You ascended from dark waters

Poem I wrote recently about depression and anxiety.
Artwork by me also.

I watched as the panic overtook you
Powerless as you gasped for air
Drowning in deep waters thinking no one cares
The anxiety pulls you down under
The noises in your head a constant thunder

I reached for you
My fingers touching the surface
“I’m sorry I’m such a burden...”
I hear your voice whisper in my ear
I look around but you’re nowhere near

I watched helplessly as you slipped into your sorrows
Convinced there will never be a better tomorrow
I left you there to cry
Under the blood red skies
The demons serenading you with colorful lies

I didn’t know what to do
So I just gave up on you
As you begged to be rescued
I sat, trembling along the shore
Waiting for the sun to overpower the storm

Until I realized the sun was me
I could release you
Let us be free

I shined my light into the Darkness
Set fire to our demons and the Heartless
And then, I saw you there
No longer struggling for air

You ascended from dark waters
Newly bloomed flowers decorating you like an altar
Resilient and stronger

You reached out your hand
And touched mine
Our lips moved at the same time...
“We’re going to be fine...”

We smiled and laughed
Because we believed
Peace, at last,
is what we achieved. . .

Missing my grandfather my best friend who passed away 11 years ago on October 8th2009 I was with him in room when he passed I went into room day bef

He passed away he was in a coma on morphine I went up to him with nurse by myself I said Dziadziu it’s 1J3$$13 I love you and he opened his eyes looked at me and said I I I I I I like he was trying to say I love you to me and then he closed his eyes lived over1 more day n then passed. I got a gift of him doing that for me he never opened his eyes for anyone else but me. I take comfort in that he told me he loved me one last time. I get signs from him and spirit all the time when I was a kid he and my grandma would take us on an evening ride on back country roads there was this one road where it was a rest area we would drive get out every week and my grandfather would go look kids it’s money there would be coins on ground of course when your a kid you think it’s a cool thing finding money so we named the road money road I found out as an adult it was my grandfather dropping coins on ground for us. So often I will be sad walk on my sidewalk or road and find pennies nickels and dimes I lock them up and add them to my coin jar it’s my grandson spirit form leaving these signs for me and a hawk follows me everywhere I go. #Grief #sad #Grandparents #Death #Love #Chatspace #Upallnight #CheckInWithMe #BipolarDisorder #BipolarDepression #Bipolar2Disorder #BorderlineStigma #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #Fibromyaliga #Fibromyalgia #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PTSD #CPTSD #CPTSDinrelationships #PinchedNerve #ADHD #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #Aspergers #AspergersSyndrome #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #flare #Flareup #resilient #Yoga #Art #Photography #Exercise #Sadness #lonely #PolycysticOvarySyndrome #MightyQuestions #TheMightyTakeaway #TheMightyCommunity #MightyReviews #TheMightyTakeaway #TheMighty #MightyFeatures #strength #fall #Nature #COVID19
