    "Emptying a space for the new to be revealed." So that is what happens when we take a vacation! Word Baths are my morning meditation, I ask for a word for the day, write down what pops into my head and then define it. (My husband Ron (and sons) built this beautiful wooden kayak.) #dailyaffirmations #dailyrituals #definitions #Meditation #anxietyrelief #anxietysupport #Ptsdrecovery #PTSDawareness #Selflove #selfcare #UlcerativeColitis #AnalCancer #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain #NarcissisticAbuse #CoerciveControl

    I’m new here!

    Hi, my name is Nikki1966. I'm here because I struggle daily with BOD and PTSD , I also have chronic spine and back pain after a bad fall. I had surgery to replace discs in my neck 4 years ago but am still awaiting surgery on my lower spine but due to covid and NHS strikes I could be waiting 3 more years in which time it will get worse, this adds to my PTSD and BPD and puts strain on my partner too. I lost my mum 2 years ago on Xmas Day to vascular dementia but seem to only really be starting to grieve recently. I must sound like a lost cause at the moment but I’d really like to get out of the hole I’m stuck in and start living again! I seem to find any excuse not to go out or socialise and am now AMAZON and NETFLIX ETC best customer I think as I’m becoming very reclusive despite having 2 amazing dogs who seem to know I’m unwell and I have to push myself to walk them but always go alone and to places I know I will not meet people. I’m registered fully disabled and have enhances PIP and UC with the medical add one, I don’t have friends apart from my partner and his close friends but it’s a trial for me to mix and seem to get very hyper when I do. My kids are grown, one in london and one in Dubai so not close and both work so hard and long hours. Mt dad (81) lives with me but he’s a fall risk and is very deaf now with cataracts so is an added pressure. I’m hoping using this app might help me. if anyone would like to say hi I’ll reply and any help or advice how to get the best from Mighty I’d appreciate.thanks Nikki ( near Dundee, Scotland)
