    What is a podcast you listen to that brings you comfort?

    When I want to relax and learn I listen to Hidden Brain. Host Shankar Vedantam has a calming voice and I love the elements they use to get you into the story they are telling.

    Missing my grandfather my best friend who passed away 11 years ago on October 8th2009 I was with him in room when he passed I went into room day bef

    He passed away he was in a coma on morphine I went up to him with nurse by myself I said Dziadziu it’s 1J3$$13 I love you and he opened his eyes looked at me and said I I I I I I like he was trying to say I love you to me and then he closed his eyes lived over1 more day n then passed. I got a gift of him doing that for me he never opened his eyes for anyone else but me. I take comfort in that he told me he loved me one last time. I get signs from him and spirit all the time when I was a kid he and my grandma would take us on an evening ride on back country roads there was this one road where it was a rest area we would drive get out every week and my grandfather would go look kids it’s money there would be coins on ground of course when your a kid you think it’s a cool thing finding money so we named the road money road I found out as an adult it was my grandfather dropping coins on ground for us. So often I will be sad walk on my sidewalk or road and find pennies nickels and dimes I lock them up and add them to my coin jar it’s my grandson spirit form leaving these signs for me and a hawk follows me everywhere I go. #Grief #sad #Grandparents #Death #Love #Chatspace #Upallnight #CheckInWithMe #BipolarDisorder #BipolarDepression #Bipolar2Disorder #BorderlineStigma #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #MyalgicEncephalomyelitis #Fibromyaliga #Fibromyalgia #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #PTSD #CPTSD #CPTSDinrelationships #PinchedNerve #ADHD #ObsessiveCompulsiveDisorder #Aspergers #AspergersSyndrome #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #flare #Flareup #resilient #Yoga #Art #Photography #Exercise #Sadness #lonely #PolycysticOvarySyndrome #MightyQuestions #TheMightyTakeaway #TheMightyCommunity #MightyReviews #TheMightyTakeaway #TheMighty #MightyFeatures #strength #fall #Nature #COVID19

    Managing #Bipolar and maintaining #MentalHealth in a career

    Hi #TheMightyCommunity. First time sharing my struggle functioning with #BipolarDisorder daily and it may be a long read, for some. I’m hoping by sharing my story, some can relate and I won’t feel this is a battle I’m fighting alone.

    I was diagnosed #Bipolar2Disorder within a year after divorcing in 2005. I have a strong family history of mental illness, #Anxiety and suicide. Looking back at my childhood and symptoms experienced, my diagnosis made sense. Even though I am compliant with meds the last five years, re-established with a counselor and psychiatrist, I never realized how much my bipolar diagnosis would be a struggle in my adult years and career.

    I have worked in the healthcare field for many years, in various positions: physician scheduler, CNA and homecare. Within the last seven years, medical assisting. Earning my MA certification was a huge achievement, especially after dropping out of a nursing program while divorcing. I was too emotionally preoccupied to focus.

    Fast forward. In the seven years I have been a MA, I have experienced six job losses. Most recently, last week. With those job losses, a sense of embarrassment and feeling of inadequacy and invalidation. I mulled over disclosing my mental illness to my employers. My most recent position was with a much smaller specialty private practice. After a meeting late last fall due to some difficulties and tendencies, I divulged my difficulties in hopes it would help management understand my personality and idiosyncrasies. We did not have an EAP program available but management did offer solutions, as well as an advance for my HSA. Christmas and New Years came and went. I felt I was doing “so much better,” as people with bipolar often feel with their fleeting symptoms. After New Years, we were told my provider I was paired was leaving the practice end of February. My heart sank. We were a good team. Anxiety came about working with a new provider. The COVID crisis, decreased hours and guilt having my academically struggling nine year old home trying to complete his schoolwork without my guidance. Working with my new provider was not all I envisioned, especially after working with an independent, self-sufficient doctor. I felt my frustration well-up, experienced more negative coping mechanisms: sighing, more animated when expressing/conveying frustration with some new office processes associated with the virus. I felt I needed to step lightly, grew more distant from my coworkers. Placed on a two week probation due to “poor coping skills.” Experienced a lapse in judgment, had a passing conversation with a coworker about my boyfriend’s coworker not feeling well that ultimately ended in my termination because of possible COVID exposure. After discussing the last two weeks with my boyfriend, we concluded I would have lost my job regardless. I also realized how toxic my work environment had become and why my doctor left the practice. Maybe my termination was a blessing.

    The Mighty Family #TheMighty

    It’s currently 3:25 am, and here I am scrolling on the feed, seeing how there’s quite a few people here who feeling very much alone. I just want to quickly say that regardless of where you are,or age, anything like that; you’re loved. You’re not alone, though it may feel like you have nobody or can’t talk to anyone- there’s always someone there. Thankfully I have met quite a few really nice understanding people here on this app, who feel very much like family :). Regardless of what we’re going through/battling we manage to have time for one another, and I love seeing that. So I just want to remind that though this is through an App, we’re all a family here.❤️ we all try to help another out, be there for one another regardless of how different our situation may be! So I just want to say that even if I or others can’t say this Face to Face to each one of you, we still mean it.❤️#MentalHealth #struggles #notalone #TheMighty #TheMightyCommunity #Depression #Anxiety #FamilyAndFriends

    Welcome to the Mighty,

    I’ve been on the Mighty for a few weeks now, and my heart is so full from all the amazing people here. I’ve never seen so many people dedicated to bringing positivity, raising awareness, and sharing their own personal stories. I’ve shared some of mine and the response has been so overwhelming with love, I could’ve never imagined. I felt so alone before and was dealing with so much depression, and anxiety being trapped in my own ‘sick bubble’ and accepting my new life. It is an amazing outlet, and any of you new people, I can’t wait to talk to you and hear your stories too. I wish I could hug all of you, I wish I could be real life friends with all of you. It has been one of the most wonderful things in my life, thank you to everyone on here for that, and welcome all my new friends ❤️ #CheckInWithMe #ChronicIllness #TheMightyCommunity
