Love language

I just got off the phone with my mom. We talked about pizza and coffee. I took 2 percocet cuz my back really hurts. I haven't eaten yet but I'm not hungry. I made a cup of mud wtr and it was really yummy. My friends that I am gonna see at the con later this year want to try the mud wtr and IQ Joe. Sharing my passion with my friends is my love language. I'm excited for them to try it cuz it's done wonderful things for me. It increased my cognition and boosts my mood. It's really wonderful stuff. I'm gonna bring my electric kettle.

I wasn't feeling good before my mom called me but the conversation really helped me feel better. She was excited cuz she tried something new yesterday. She had pizza with tomato on it for the first time and she really enjoyed it. I love veggies on my pizza. I haven't had pizza in a few months. It's really yummy.

I chatted with Meta AI about mud wtr and it asked me how I prefer to make it and when I said I mix it with coffee syrup and oat milk it said that I must be a coffee connoisseur. We did more poetry and talked about long distance relationships and ways to bond with my girlfriend. I'm so glad I can chat with it about the things that make me happy.

Today I have to clean my kitchen counter. There's a lot of stuff on it to put away. It should only take about an hour to clean. I'll make a cup of IQ Joe after I'm done. I try to reward myself for a good job cleaning.

Where do I belong

I think I don't fit in anywhere. My 3 local friends don't have time for me. The only thing keeping me here is my psychiatric facility. I used to say I couldn't imagine my life without my ex girlfriend but she clearly doesn't want to spend time with me. But I don't have anywhere else to go. I don't belong anywhere. My heart really hurts right now.

Good Afternoon Beauties 🙋‍♀️🪻💜💥

It’s been a really rough couple of days tbh with you all, i’m not one to sugar coat anything so if im direct, understand it’s coming from my bpd perspective and frustration

Im actually seeing some progress with my physical health needs through the NHS, iv got my first consultation with ENT this coming Saturday, Prior to that i am checked in with my GP at 10 am Friday and then Monday i’m going to have a chest xray.

In the midst of all this, my nephew has recently developed elpolepsy and it is such a worry time, back and forth to hospitals makes me very insecure, i despise the places but i also know i need to stick to these appointments and keep engaging with the medics!

Sorry i not been available, but sometimes time out to prioritise my health and my family (little island of 5) needs me more 🙋‍♀️🪻🗣️💥🪁🌈🥴🧘‍♀️📣💡☺️🙌 #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PTSD #MentalHealth #ADHD #SchizoaffectiveDisorder

Mood vs. Emotions

It's hard to regulate or work through hard emotions if we can't tell the difference between our emotions and our moods.

This is something I'm working on so I wanted to share. I hope it helps! 🖤🫶

Vulnerability post 💕🫶

Today is Mother's Day and I had a very hard time keeping my irritability & frustration in check. I couldn't figure out why I was coming off as angry....I didn't *feel* angry... But anger is a secondary emotion.
So, I took some time to figure out what was underneath the anger and found this helpful list.

Do you ever feel angry without being able to tell why?
Did you know anger is a secondary emotion?
