Not Everyone Will Understand Your Life And That’s Ok, You Have to Live Your Life, Not Make Others Understand It! #BipolarDepression #Depression

I’m not telling anyone to do this or that but I just want to give you the option to see if what works for me, can possibly give you some relief for coping with your depression. I’m sure we have plenty of questions about it but it’s a unique way of existence as you are unique and so is your depression.

So, when you are hungry it could be a few hours since you ate or a few days. The feeling of hunger is still the same. You see what I am trying to say is that you can have different causes and still result in the same feelings. I have also found that if people are telling me what I need to do and it’s like a ‘you need to go for a run, get some exercise’ I don’t bother to ask them at what point you expect me to get my joggers on when I have an overwhelming need to stay in my bed! You can find out real friends who have love for you when you have mental conditions.

Also if you imagine that you make a fist with your hand. That’s representing you and around it is where your energy goes. If it’s only at 65% or anything below 100%, you can’t possibly give 100% or your full attention and effort to things around you like work or personal commitments, it’s not possible. I found absolutely nothing I tried to do was easy and I forced myself in to stuff and then you exhaust your self. You have to be kind to yourself I think and have a day in bed if needed. I wrote this if anyone can take anything from it! Sending love and support to you all

Tomorrow is the First Day of the Rest of Your Life #Inspirat...

Being a big more social, finding community supports, volunteering, and going out more/ long walks has been super helpful.

Recovery is hard but I’m really grateful to be having a bit of some better days lately

I wish you all the same. #Recovery #Hope #light #YouGotThis #allthebest

I have something to say

I am proud of you for making it here this far. It takes so much to keep on going, and that’s truly an amazing thing. It will get better. As hard as that may be to believe, bad days won’t last forever. Good days will come. Please, be there to see them. Keep on trying. Please 💛🎗

What makes you #strong 💪🏻
What empowers you to keep going?
What lifts your Spirit up?
A kind word?
A smile?
A hug?
Maybe it’s the right song on the radio when you turn it on?
Perhaps it’s the sound of Children’s laughter?
Maybe it’s a great support system of your “tribe”, your “Soul family”?
#strength 💪🏻 is not measured by lifting weights.
Strength comes from lifting yourself up every time you get knocked down.
It’s OK to fall.
We all do.
Just don’t stay there on the ground for too long.
Pick yourself back up and come out swinging harder and stronger than before! 🥊💪🏻

How will you respond?

No one said life would be easy.
No one guaranteed us anything.
I didn’t ask for the #CPTSD the #ChronicDepression the #MajorAnxiety I didn’t ask for the #UlcerativeColitis the #CrohnsDisease the #diverticulosis the #Diabetes
I didn’t ask for being part of less than 1%of the ENTIRE WORLD having both inner ears damaged beyond repair. I didn’t ask for the #Tinnitus ringing so loudly in both ears I sometimes can’t hear what ppl say. I didn’t ask for any of this. But I have them and more
They way I see it?
I have 2 choices
I can learn to live with what I have and take #ONESTEP 🦶🏼at a time to do my best. Even if it’s minute to minute
I can be a victim, feel sorry for myself, “woe is me”
I’m learning that I can’t control everything. This is a hard one for me.
I like to know what’s going on, what will happen, I over analyze EVERYTHING and then do it again. It’s a viscous cycle
My mind always races
What about this? What about that? You should have did/said whatever this or that
I’m sure a lot of you know the “Coulda Shoulda Woulda” game we all play
STOP 🛑 ✋🏻
Take a deep breath
My therapist told me something recently that “clicked”
She said “Focus on the things you CAN control, not the things you can’t.” She was right. I’m a #workinprogress but I’m trying 🙂
When I start to focus on what I CAN control, my #Stress levels go down just a bit. The #AnxietyAttack is at bay just a bit longer and I feel just a bit better.
It’s amazing what can happen when focused on what I can control and #letgo of what I can’t.
This is one of my favorite #mantras
Which one will you choose?
I’ll choose to RISE again and again
Whoever is reading this remember:

Dear workplace & management

These types of letters and convocations should not be an issue under normal circumstances, but we live in a world where most people are closed-minded, we live in a world where medical resources are developing at a faster rate than anyone can imagine, and we live in a world where people are judgmental of what they see.
More people are being diagnosed with chronic illness as a result of this. Which, in a perfect world, would be a comfort for a lot of people, including myself (to a degree), to finally get some answers as to why you're feeling so horrible, and in some situations, even receive some pain relief and at the very least alleviate the symptoms.

However, not everyone, particularly those in the workplace, can embrace this ideal truth. In my case, now that I'm in a work where my superiors respect me and my chronic disease, it may not be an issue on a daily basis. But, in the end, I'd like to apologize to those in management who have to deal with me taking three days off for health concerns, even though it doesn't happen very frequently (in my case).

I feel bad, of course I feel bad! But, at the end of the day, I'm working in an active job where I'm on my feet all day; it's not the ideal job for someone with two chronic illnesses, but it pays for my university, my cost of living, and my future.
I apologize if I don't always do my work to the best of my ability, as you know I can; sometimes I'm tired or want to reserve my energy for the last 3 hours of my 8 hour (or 12 hour) shift. I'll use any opportunity to sit down, whether it's to use the restroom or to clean the bottom of the refrigerator. I'm exhausted and in pain, but I provide excellent service to my customers.

To my coworkers whose shift was abruptly changed after I called in ill, whose shift with me wasn't up to par because I was having a poor day, and who can't fully rely on me since my brain isn't working.
But one thing I've learned from having a chronic illness and working full-time is that I'm not sorry for taking care of my body, for taking a sick day, and, most importantly, for my chronic illness, because when I leave those restaurant doors at the end of the day, I leave my coworkers, managers, and upper management behind, and I'll always take my chronic illness with me.

From an extremely appreciative employee that enjoys their job and would never want to cause any trouble under any circumstances
