The One Where I Change Therapists

Sometimes I feel like I’m in a F.R.I.E.N.D.S. Or Modern Family episode. Today’s mood is definitely Modern Family. I’ve always related to Alex Dunphy, yet behaved at times like Hailey. Compared myself to my siblings like Claire. Dreamt big like Phil. Manipulated like Gloria. Loved my puppy like Jay loves Stella. Wrote poetry like Manny and been oblivious like Luke.

Sooooo, in today’s episode..

Here goes nothing - or everything!

So, today I saw a new therapist. Same conclusion, I need to get my shit together but somehow comforted and trusting her. There was something about my other therapist that I find intimidating. Now, I can only be thankful for all her help- it doesn’t make her a bad therapist, her job with me was done. I learned how to cope and functioning again after rehab, and she was there in urgent times of need. We laughed, joked and worked together. I’ll stop myself from including “but’s” or “what if”. I chose to change therapists because I didn’t feel safe enough to be honest, fact that I told my now therapist... She didn’t leave me homework this time, and I feel so relieved. I’m going to reward myself with a cup of sugar free almond milk with low-carb natural stevia, and watch my uncle’s memoir service online. I’m sorry I missed your live memoir, dearest uncle, I was helping my Higher Power save my life through therapy, I know you want me happy. Please pray that I get my dream job.

I still want to move the fuck out of my house, yet feel safe again with my very own set of Dunphys 🧡🤓🤦🏻‍♀️.

I'm just thankful today has been a good day mentally. It's very gloomy outside but I find it refreshing and I feel peaceful today. I should take it in as tomorrow will more than likely be downfalls good. #CheckInWithMe #CheerMeOn

Merry Christmas

I hope that everyone has a Merry Christmas!
I am very thankful for everyone that has supported me along the way. Living with Bipolar Disorder is not easy. If you are struggling, then it is always important to remember that you are strong and you are loved by others. Remind yourself that you are here and you've made it this far. We all have good days and bad days. Stay positive and do not be afraid to seek help or reach other to others.
Happy Holidays Everybody!

Welcome to the Mighty #CheckInWithMe #Thankfulforsupport

I was in a dark place after finding out I had a rare disease (Klippel-Feil Syndrome) along with my other issues (Ankylosing Spondylitis, Sjögren's syndrome, Long Qt). I was desperately looking for stories and support from others suffering from similar issues. The Mighty was the resource I needed in such a desperate time and I am thankful to everyone who shares their struggles to help others struggling with the same feelings and issues.


Pain during holidays #Thankfulforsupport

I’m lucky to have a very supportive husband. The hardest part of chronic pain during the holidays is not being able to last very long at my husband’s side of the family’s holiday get together. My family typically doesn’t hold holiday gatherings anymore since my dad passed away. I’m the last of six and all my siblings have at least 2 kids and a lot of those kids are now having their own kids so it’s a lot of work. My family also thinks I’m a terrible wife and should just push through and get a job. Not that simple when your battling chronic lowers abdominal pain, fibromyalgia, gastroparesis (paralyzed stomach) that doesn’t let me eat without throwing up immediately after I eat, hypothyroidism , anemia, orthostatic hypotension, possible autonomic dysfunction, ptsd, major depressive disorder, and anxiety. I wish everyone had the wonderful, supportive husband that I have.
