Just Breath #Loss #Depression #Selfpreservation

Just breath…I tell myself. I lose myself in thoughts of everything that has happened in the past several months and the pain I feel over losing my Sister in March. I take frontage roads and admire the beauty of my world. I tell myself to breath in and try to let these emotions rest. I know I have the power inside me to heal my mind, to find ways to calm my soul and still acknowledge the struggles that rage inside of me. I know that Im not alone, although so many times I feel lonely. And so, I Just Breath…

I’m leaving my job #Selfpreservation #workplaceabuse #Selfcare #survival #minority #CowdenSyndrome

I’m leaving my job at the end of the week and it’s scary . It’s scary and sad how abusive the work environment has become since I started working there two kids and three surgeries ago. It’s also frightening how I did not realize how hellish it had become till I was on medical leave. Now I’m doing my two weeks. I’m back to drinking which I had not felt the urge to do the entire time I wasn’t working. It’s taking time to emotionally disentangle like an abusive boyfriend. But thank god the process has begun this is a scary but hopeful time

I am currently homebound due to excrutiating nerve pain throught back/neck/arms. This prevents me from driving, which prevents me from visiting close friends whom i love and trust. I'm homebound with an emotionally abusive husband. All of the hastags preceding this might give you an idea of areas that are vital to be intuned with; depressing & self loathing are creeping in; not fun but i'm aware of WHY they are creeping in. I need to think outside my own box; create doable concrete goals with visual aid of checklists to see how i'm doing. (Read books A,B,C ea. 30mins in AM & 30 minsPM; each day work on art therapy; explore!; use different mediums; the 700lb. phone!;answer phone 1x/return one missed call, etc. #successbringssuccess
I often tell people I 'do the work' as best i can. #progressnotperfection
It's a bless to have learned to break down the what/why/how ; to get to the root of depression, sadness creeping in. #Selfpreservation
My nerve pain will end soon;in the meantime i'll try to focus on my "in house goals ."
