You have survived everything you have been through, and you will survive this too. Stay for the person you will become. You are more than a bad day, or week, or month, or year, or even a decade. You are a future of multifarious possibility. You are another self at a point in future time looking back in gratitude that this lost and former you held on. Stay.

The Christmas of pneumonia.

My nephew had come over with a cold he got from his grandma and uncle .
His uncle is only 11 so still a kid, well he broke his arm and had to go to the ER and they brought back with them a killer flu/cold deal.
Everyone got sick, they were miserable for a while then got over it.
And then my nephew came over, it looked safe, he had no sniffles, no coughing.
He looked fine.
My mom and I were just packing up for a trip and we all thought it was okay to go.
The sickness was over and the possibility of anyone of us getting sick looked slim.

The next day which was our day to leave he started getting sick.
We couldn’t cancel the trip so my mom and I left the baby with his daddy and grandpa and we went to another town 5 hours away.

The way there was great, it was fun and the longest I’ve ever been on a road trip, the next day my mom was busy with work (this was a work trip) so I was on my own....
I started getting sick, by the end of the day I was https://miserable.I didn’t have my nebulizer with me and I didn’t have my https://mom.I was alone in my casino room with nothing to do and on my https://period.Yeah that was shitty.

That night the coughing started, it was all alright I just slept.
The next day though we were done with the trip and started to pack up.
I had a cough, the whole way home I coughed and coughed and coughed more.

The rest of that week was awful.
I ended up with pneumonia, severe pneumonia...not hospital worthy but my doctors were scared for a while.

My fever went to 103/104 I was vomitting it was probably the worst I’ve ever been.

This lasted through November and December.

Moral of the story, be careful with respiratory illness.

Especially with Covid.

Please pray for the vulnerable , protect them, show them your love from a safe distance and don’t get to comfortable even when things open up again.

Everyone (from the other family)said that the flu I got was a smal viral illness , it wasn’t a small reaction for me.
Covid may be small for other people...not really but you get my point... but it’s not small for those of us with weak immune systems.

#stay home ...stay safe #
Spread love, spread health, just not germs..

Have a good life peeps.
Luv ya
Thanks for the non stop support with.....everything .
This was my story.
Just wanted to share.


National BPD Awareness Month

#MentalHealth #warrior #Childhoodtrauma #PTSD #CPTSD #bpdawareness #livingwithbpd #BPDStigma #empathizeeducateadvocate

This is National Borderline Mental Health Month. I was thinking of those of us living with BPD and how strong we must be just to survive, every day, especially during this time of Covid-19. Here's a shout-out to all of us #stay
(BPD) is a personality disorder that can be both hereditary or acquired by growing up in a traumatic childhood environment. Many with BPD were abused sexually, physically, verbally, and mentally as a child. We are often born into families of dysfunction. There is no 1 drug or fix for those of us who suffer. BPD can display in a multitude of ways. We live with constant stigma. Like snowflakes, we have unique symptoms. The criteria diagnosis however, is much the same. At the very core are abandonment, trauma and abuse issues. The journey to manage our symptoms is lifelong. Having BPD as a diagnosis is compared to living with stage 4 terminal cancer in stress. Left unchecked, our symptoms can destroy our lives and the lives of those who try to love us. BPD can go into remission, only to reoccur in minutes by something that triggers us. A trigger is a connection between the conscious mind and a buried painful memory. It can occur by sight, sound, smell, words. Coming out of nowhere, it sends our mind back to an experienced trauma. This is also known as Complex PTSD. Living with BPD means a lifetime of always explaining yourself and your actions to others. BPD leaves us second-guessing our thoughts and emotions 24/7. Lacking the grey area in our brain, we split black/white thinking. All or Nothing. Good or Bad. Love or Hate. BPD is your brain going 90 mph with the parking brake on. We are misunderstood, abandoned or dismissed due to our instability and dysregulation of our moods. From this, we suffer great loneliness. If you take time to know us, you will find us to be intelligent people. We are generous and giving. We love big and are loyal. We would lay our life down for those we love. We'd rather hurt ourselves than you. If we do hurt you in our words or actions, we often take it out by self-harming and self-loathing that can last for days. We find it hard to forgive ourselves when our symptoms flair. This is not a life we asked for. It is a life we Radically Accept. BPD has the highest suicide rate of all mental disorders. We are #warriors as we have been fighting for our lives since we were a child. 💪Alice M. Pirola
