    Sometimes you have to show yourself

    #SuicideSurvivor #Survivor #fibromyalgiawarrior

    There are times when you have to say theses words…

    Get up

    Get up

    Get up

    Yes not every morning is filled with happiness and bliss. Sometimes you feel like you are so tired but you don’t know why. That’s when you rest your head you rest your body but you don’t stay down you rise.

    Rise and shine

    The call you have times when your in pain you have times when your literally unable to move.

    So you rest for a time in that time IT is up to someone else to shine. While you take a moment to sit back watch and smile.

    Being an independent is hard on you for what ever reason you think you have to be part of the process. The truth is once you have shown the process others know how but will let you do all the work until you ask them to do it or you give it over to them to do.

    Then IT is not up to you IT is up to them!

    So when you burn 🔥 Out you need that rest there is no reason to busy about. Just rest and without a doubt everything will work out.

    The main thing is you rise!

    Don’t stay down…

    Get up

    Get up

    Get up

    Even if for a bit today and a bit tomorrow your still UP!

    Someone out there needs this today!!

    Your important

    Your not alone

    Your worthy

    In the Silence Of My Tears
    Sometimes when I lay in the midst of the night
    I can see the darkest corners of my jagged mind
    All the memories from demons past and present
    come flooding over me
    Nights turn to days … and … days turn to nights
    As I lay in the silent embers of my burning tears
    He lays next to me, Still I am alone,
    in the midst of the night as I silently cry
    Why must these demons haunt me eternally,
    why am I alone in my tears
    If all time is eternally present, how can I escape my demons past
    How can I reach my future without maddening frustration,
    without silent tears
    With time past always in my presence
    How can I escape the cold darkness of the aloneness
    My sadness deepens with each tear that falls on deaf ears
    Still he hears me not, in the stillness of the silence
    My past and present collide into one
    never ending nightmare of isolation
    Is this my destiny
    Sometimes when I lay in the midst of the night
    I can see the darkest corners of my jagged mind
    I scream out in silence through my tear stained face
    See me, hear me, I am not invisible
    As I lay in the silence of my tears

    New Fish Tank - New Fish

    Sometimes the blessing is pulling you out!

    #SuicideSurvivor #Fibromyalgia #RiseAbove

    Amen to this and all the above One Love

    God sometimes sets you apart so you can spend time with him and heal.

    Some of us get the second chance deal however it means life is completely reset and rearranged.

    This is a blessing often misunderstood.

    Think of it as a fish tank and a sick fish only gets better in a clean fish tank.

    Now when the fish is healthy and clean all healed. The fish does not go back to the dirty or toxic fish tank.

    The fish gets a new fish tank with new fish and is happy with out the toxic water and fish that made the fish ill in the first place.

    Sometimes God gives you a new life in a new fish tank.

    Thank Good for saving you and giving you a chance to live.

    I found The Mighty when first diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. I stopped signing in and didn’t realize how helpful it is to hear someone else story about how they triumphed a disability or a bad moment. A few weeks ago I attempted suicide. This was due to the constant everyday pain and the work and life reprocussions of being in pain. No one seems to understand what daily pain without relief will do to the human mind. I spent a week in a psychiatric ward and then was released. Let me tell you I am not better. Nothing has changed pain is still there, judgement is still there. But I am now expected to be grateful to be alive. Let me tell you nothing changed I still feel the same. The worst moment in my life was waking up in the hospital to realize I was not successful. Still trying to find a reason I am here other than to experience pain. #Fibromyalgia #SuicideSurvivor #Bipolar #Depression #mentalhealthsucks

    Hi, friends. I’m newish here and I’m hoping I can help others by sharing my story of loss

    Below is a picture of my parents, Sandy & Jim.

    My dad—my person—died suddenly two weeks after my 10th birthday in the summer of 1978 of an apparent heart attack. It wasn’t until I was 45 years old that I learned he had actually taken his own life.

    I’m 54 now, with two grown daughters of my own, and this weekend I’ll be walking in my first Out of The Darkness Walk to Fight Suicide sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention with my husband and girls. And I have to say, in the days leading up to the walk, I’ve definitely been feeling all the feels; so I thought this would be the perfect place to share what’s in my head and heart space right now.

    It’s been close to a decade since I learned the truth about my father’s death, but only a handful of years since I rewrote my internal narrative of suicide and mental illness and begun advocating for suicide prevention and sharing my story. Because, for the longest time, as so many people do, I believed suicide to be a selfish act. But not anymore. Now, I can say with total certainty, that learning the truth about my dad’s mental illness has not only changed my belief system about suicide, but it’s changed the trajectory of my life.

    Since learning that my dad ended his own life, I’ve come to understand that mental illness is an illness like any other, one that needs to be acknowledged and understood and treated. I’ve also begun sharing my personal experience with suicide and grief and loss with everyone who’s willing been to listen. And I’ve been overwhelmed by the number of people expressing their gratitude that I’m talking so openly about something that’s been hidden in the shadows for so long.

    So many of the people who have heard my story of losing my dad twice have said they’ve felt less alone, simply by virtue of our shared experience. And that’s a gift. Because there’s a beautiful community here within this unique “club” we’re all a part of, and within that community is healing and forgiveness and hope.

    In the days leading up to tomorrow’s walk, I’ve definitely felt feelings of anxiousness because I’ve yet to be surrounded, at one time, by that many people who’ve endured a similar level of loss and trauma to mine. At the same time, though, I’m also feeling feelings of anticipation and an almost eagerness to be around people who so deeply understand what I’m feeling. So, I’m doing the hard thing and walking to honor my dad’s life and to show my support for those who are still struggling with mental illness. Most importantly, tho, I’m showing up as a reminder that we’re not alone as we navigate grief and loss and mental illness. And that’s been the key for me as I’ve unpacked and unearthed so many emotions over the course of this loss. Knowing that I’m not alone has been a guiding light for me. And knowing that even with grief comes love and growth.

    Have you shared your story of loss? If you have, has sharing given you strength and hope?
