    Chronic Pain Sucks

    Been in a severe fibro flare up for 2 weeks first severe one in a while and have had to take time out from work as am physically, mentally and emotionally burnt out.... back to relying on my zimmerframe to get about indoors as can barely walk from the pain in my lower back, pelvic girdle, knees and feet... my cervicogenical headaches are making me vomit and my sensory hypersensitivity is through the roof... and to top it all off I have UTI on top of it and going to the loo 60x plus a day for a little piddle that hurts like hell... My husband took the week off as leave to help me but has been more of hinderance than help... We keep arguing that takes even more energy of which I have zero left in the tank and I'm so depressed... just feel so overwhelmed and helpless and am so emotional, noise is a big thing for me I can't stand it and he refuses to put his headset on whilst gaming and has to play shooting games which make me jolt which causes more pain and has to have the TV so loud that I scream because it just can't take it... to watching films on his phone in bed waking me up which means I cannot get back to sleep so my body just isn't recovering.... when trying to cook and clean where my husbands does nothing to alleviate those every day tasks, if I didn't do these things my husbands answer is Uber Eats as it means I don't have to cook or wash up after.... he is a can't cook won't cook man and I am like yeah cos copious amounts of junk food is seriously going to help my energy levels... I'm grateful to my husband because I love him and I know he is having to live with this debilitating conditions as well being married to me... but the arguments are taking its toll... sorry to rant in my first ever post but I know this is a safe space #Fibromyalgia #sensoryhypersensitivity #SafeSpace #Needspace

    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

    ABSOLUTE TRUST #Trust #Cat #Love #SafeSpace #friend

    My cat is not God who sees all things and understands all things. However in her perfection as “Cat” she constantly reminds me that in her eyes I am a safe haven. Lindt was a rescue cat. Left behind with her kittens when her human family moved. Today she is precious in My eyes and a good reminder that I am precious in Gods eyes. We are Loved!!!

    This group is now a private- full privacy- group!

    Hi everyone! We just made this group private instead of it being a publicly seen group.
    This means all group content will only be visible to members of the group.

    Now everyone in our group can feel completely comfortable sharing about yourself and anything about your life in here, and posting your own posts in here and no worries about letting us really get to know each other so we can achieve this group’s purpose-to grow new, genuine friendships because what’s in this group is only for us to see!

    When men make you feel unsafe

    This is to the men who think it is okay to try to pick up women on this platform.

    This is not a dating site. This is not the place for you to pop up in my inbox with a "hello" in the hopes that I will entertain some kind of conversation with you. What are you hoping will happen?

    I would be more inclined to think this an actual conversation popping up if I had a random man or woman who is part of one of my communities messaging me with real concerns, or reaching out to discuss a common illness and find support.

    This is a safe community of people who struggle with very real illnesses and disabilities. A space where people come when they are vulnerable or want to share their thoughts, maybe foster some positivity. I come here to find support and a safe space where I know others understand what I am going through.

    Shame on you for your revolting lack of manners and empathy. If you want to pick up women who are clearly in your class - go visit your local dive bar or sign up for a cheap dating site. But don't, DON'T, feel that it is okay to step into my safe space and try to hit me up.

    Love this space.

    Ya know, sometimes you just need to vent and don’t have / want to speak to anyone in your life cause you don’t want to bother them with your issues/thoughts/feelings.

    But The Mighty.... I feel safe to speak without judgement and supported.
    So thank you to everyone for being a safe supportive space.

    Tonight's thoughts 💭💭.... #MentalHealth #Parenting #GeneralParenting #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare

    Tonight's late night walk with the little ones and dog ....

    Justnow my main focus is while trying to cope with my physical and mental health struggles I really wanted to work on being able to feel like the best mummy I can be while adapting to my new ways of life at the moment .Recently I have gotten so wrapped up in my struggles that I am constantly putting myself down ,feeling guilty and disappointed in myself for things I am doing differently or can't do anymore the way I want too.

    Having some time with them today and tonight ,having fun ,hearing them laugh , getting lots of love and just listening to them and watching them has really felt a massive relief from what I have been feeling.
    Tonight I am going to bed thinking of our fun,the hugs,thinking of hearing them say I'm the best and it was the best day go over in my head and I am going to bed with a very full heart , feeling proud of myself and most of all actually looking forward to tomorrow which is something I've been struggling with alot recently.

    It really is the little things that can make the biggest difference ♥️

    Something that's taken a little longer than I thought to learn... #COVID19 #longcovid #Anxiety #CheckInWithMe #MentalHealth #Abuse

    When it eventually just clicks one day and seems to make sense to why you had been hurting for so long .

    I hope someone who needs to hear and be reminded of this can get some help from seeing this tonight.

    You are worth it
    You do matter
    It will get easier
    You are strong

    You don't need to stay in the situation.

    Reach out ♥️

    New Year

    Wishing everyone a Happy New Year!

    Finally have all 3 of the self-help books I ordered, I've started reading all of them, decided today I'm going to create my safe place (The Inner Child Workbook), husband is going to help me too. We don't have a lot of space so I'm going to be making it in our greenhouse, which is empty right now, but will be even nicer in the spring when its full of plants. I'm a little excited to start on this work, but also a little apprehensive about it.

    I've already been trying to take a deep breath when I start to feel anxious and remind myself that when somebody is yelling they arent yelling at me, and I don't have to take it so personally.

    Anyway, I hope everyone is doing alright, all of you are always in my thoughts. Thank you everyone!
