    My Impending Doom (non-suicidal)

    When I was around the age of 31, I had a dream that I wouldn't make it past 36. It has strangely stuck with me all these years and now I'm 34 and in less then half a year will be 35. I can't shake this feeling of early death. To be frank, I tried to take my life at 12 and had no plans of making it to 20. Then James (my husband) came into my life and that all changed. I've always felt like I was on borrowed time, like I was supposed to die, but something went wrong. I also sometimes feel like I'm still that 12 year old slowly dying and my life up to this point has been in the head of my preteen self. Is it just old habits of mine? I can't get rid of this cloud of death that sits over the horizon. And I am slowly nearing it and have still so much to do. (Finishing writing my books. Get my art out somewhere other than local) #Depression #Death #Suicide #Love #writer #Hope #artist

    Christmas Eve Thoughts #MentalHealth #Recovery

    hi all. I posted this on my recovery instagram (@obsessive.but.awesome if anyone's interested but no pressure)-- just wanted to share my Christmas Eve thoughts from last night.

    Recovery is possible.

    Healing is possible.

    And we all deserve it.

    Processing Pain: a poem #ComplexPosttraumaticStressDisorder

    Processing pain,

    for I am feeling insane,

    the aches of my brain,

    tingling from my psyche

    (they say all I do is talk about "me"!?)

    all the way down to my core...

    more, more, more pain shatters within this mind,

    leaving me in a heavily aching bind.

    The past haunts me in a way that is hard to explain

    (they say all I do is "complain"!?).

    Help, I want to scream on the bad days,

    Please get me out of my internal maze.

    The good news though????

    Some days the light is shining bright,

    and in those moments, I feel quite alright.

    Hope exists even amidst dark moments,

    Hoping and coping...

    I can do this despite the ache.

    .

    Creative Block Busted!

    I’m in a creative slump. Couldn’t create art or get any writing done.
    Went back to child-like artwork to help break this block.
    Pic? Butterfly I drew this afternoon with color pencils.

    There will be days #MentalHealth

    there will be days
    where you want to die
    there will be days
    you say you give up
    there will be days
    where all you do is lay around
    there will be days
    when you need to be alone
    there will be days
    when you aren't yourself

    There are days
    when you love life!
    there are days
    you will accomplish more than you imagined.
    there are days
    you hang and laugh with family/friends
    there are days
    when you are yourself!

    no matter what day it is.what your going through. everyday is different. its okay to feel your emotions. take the day as it comes.
