Weekly Emotional Rollercoaster

I'm wondering if it's just me and if I'm right it's probably not. So I've noticed that each day of the week carries with it certain pressures and feelings that come about for me. Friday, I am calm. I feel at ease that the week is over and I'm going into the weekend. Saturday, I sleep in and hide from the world but then somehow come alive and feel vibrant enough to do something. Sunday, I begin feeling angst and feeling guilty for what I haven't done and panicked about all that I have to do. It takes a toll on me sleep-wise and intensifies my negative self-talk. Monday, I am drained before I even get out of bed because my mind has exhausted and raked me over the coals all night. Tuesday, I am afraid that I won't make it through the rest of the week without being confused and unmotivated. Wednesday, I feel the desire to hang on just a little bit more because I'm halfway there and it's almost over. Thursday, anxiety kicks in because I haven't really accomplished anything worth discussing and the vicious cycle continues on and on, week after week. Have you experienced this? Do you have any advice that could help me? #Anxiety #stressful #Adulting #Bipolar #mood #MoodDisorder #Depression #Bipolar2 #SocialAnxiety #sundowns #wellness #stressfuldays #harddays #StrongerTogether

Dark Times

This was literally the difference between choosing to stay or not…

I was depressed and the self-harm thoughts were strong. I had hit a low. Lots of bad days.

I don’t tell anyone this, but the little things people do to show they care or love me really mean a lot to me. This meant a lot to me because I always feel like I have to hold everything in so it was nice to be told it was OK to let it out and drop the fake smile, to know someone wanted to see that other side of me even if it’s not so pretty.

I was in a dark place and needed reassurance.

I am in the process of coming out of a long battle with depression.
This was extremely helpful and I really appreciate it 😊

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

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!

New Friends Destination For Current And Soon To Be New Friends! #Friends #MentalHealth

Doesn’t this image and idea look like a paradise?

Link to join us in this new adventure:

New Friends Ages 40-55ish

We all came on The Mighty ultimately to make new, real connections and to grow new friendships to get rid of this terrible thing called loneliness/being alone that is not good for anyone’s mental health and we all want better mental health.

We all want to have friendships too based on the simple fact that we are humans and humans need to feel connected to other humans.

And the twist with this group, is to all pitch in to make this a place on The Mighty where we don’t focus on our illnesses, because we are more than our illnesses, so much more. And we don’t want to forget that about ourselves. We don’t want to have our personalities get lost, all of the different, cool, unique things that make us who we are as people.

So let’s all pitch in and start just chatting about everyday stuff like you would with any friend, about life in general, sharing things about yourself- just a couple examples -your interests, something you found funny, etc., whatever you would think that this is something you would like to share with a friend, and having some fun being social- because we all know we need to really connect and keep growing new friendships with our mental health in mind.

One smile emoji or even one word can start a friendship. Some of the most comforting words in the universe are “me too.” “Hello.” “How is your day?”…(if you don’t have another conversation starter or reply to join in).

New friends can change your life and your mental health for the better.
Add in anything to get the ball rolling and grow some new friendships here.

We can’t wait to get to know You.

Motivational Monday: Get Bitter or Get Better

A chronic illness is a difficult journey, but how we approach it is up to us. We can allow this situation to overtake us, or we can use it as an opportunity to build character and endurance. It's up to us!

I’m back ! #MightyTogether

Hey Mighy Fam ! Long time no type ( litterally!). A mixture of my #CVID #UCTD . And apparently undiagnosable lung disease has ROYALLY Knocked me on my butt .

I was hospitalized about 2 weeks ago due to a lung infection and lung flare and it still feels like my body is MAJORLY recovering ❤️‍🩹 .

I’m also trying to figure out ALOT of things with my medical team
Right now . The belief is that the scaring / cyst in my lungs are caused by an infectious or inflammatory process . But of course no doctors are agreeing .

And it’s just a big pile of #Ugh !
#RareDisease life am I right ?! Ive honestly been struggling with a bit of #Depression . Not in a chronic sense . But in a “ man my situation REALLY sucks sense .” So I’m
Just doing all I can to keep my head above water

Today was one of my most productive days in a while !

I washed the dog , played my Uke and sang for the first time in weeks ( even though breathing has been so hard. My oxygen needs have been a bit more . And well I’m
Crappy at wearing my #Oxygen .. so I’m my own worst enemy in that department 😅)

And I just submitted a new article to the mighty about #CVID #PrimaryImmunodeficiency So 🤞🏻🤞🏻 it will be published and you all
Will read it soon!

So today definitely a #babystep
And I have an appointment with my councilor tomorrow to continue to work to get in a better headspace

But I have a goal to be more active on here ! I have missed you all !! ❤️❤️❤️. #StrongerTogether
