Sometimes help you didn’t know you needed comes from the people that were not aware they had it to give. #selfhelp #MightyTogether #MentalHealth

After my accident I had a four year block of memories lost. I also was having trouble with my short term memory. I started to journal my thoughts, experiences, feelings and memories. I created short stories, bad poetry, memes, photos and a blog to store it all on. In all there are over 200 posts now Some of it is deep, some is kind of funny, some is dark and some is just nonsense.
The idea was to be able to look back at the moments I took part in even if I was able to remember being there. What I received was messages from people thanking me for sharing because until than they felt alone, my story helped them or they needed to hear that today.
How do you respond to something like that? In all honesty I think they have helped me more.
So I keep snapping pictures, writing stories, creating memes, researching all things brain Injury, bad poetry, in general doing everything wrong from what our grade nine English teacher tried to learn us. #Depression #Anxiety #PTSD #youmatter

So I Was Thinking

This is a collection of my thoughts, questions, ideas and what I have seen. These are my opinions and experiences. In 2017 I experienced a head injury that has given me concussion like symptoms, on…

Hang in there. It’s a new day.

Yesterday was rough. Something changed unexpectedly in my day partway through, spiraling me into a mixture of anxiety and overwhelm that I was not prepared for, especially on the 4th of July.

People assume that because I am usually seeming “strong” and because I teach people how to get through life challenges, that I always have it together. But sometimes things out of my control take over. And this was no exception.

But I made it through. And so will you.
Today is a new day. And you are stronger (and more beautiful) than you think. #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #youmatter

Reality .... #MentalHealth #mentalhealthmatters #ChronicPain #Anxiety #Depression #Selfcare #CheckInWithMe

😂😂😂 this is definitely the reality when suffering with chronic pain , anxiety ,depression ,fatigue ,physical pain or just mentally struggling.
When you feel like you need a rest after just taking a shower because your so drained .....

It's the little things that seem so simple to others that can really take so much working upto actually doing & then struggling so much after doing it .

They say things could always be worse.

That does not lessen the significance of your situation. #struggle #youmatter

It's not being LONELY ,it's being ALONE to learn to appreciate & love yourself & know your worth ...... #MentalHealth #AloneTogether

Over the past while I've really truly learned to understand this.Ive cut people off or just drifted away from people or things that weren't positive or good for times it was difficult and sometimes I did feel Alone and scared and confused, but along the way and especially over past few months I've learned that I realised my boundaries through doing that ,I realised what I want and what I will accept in my life .I've come to just enjoy little things and realise the things and people that truly matter and are important to me.I do still have bad days and moments I struggle.I like having my own time and space to just relax & think or to just switch off altogether but enjoy being myself at that moment. But I've become alot stronger and I'm probably in the most difficult health position I've been in but I am dealing with it better now that I am able to focus on what's really important and also know that a BAD day isn't a BAD life ,and I have managed so far so I can keep going......

Hope this helps anyone needing to hear this today 🙏 ❤️

Feeling a million things yet I feel as though I'm numb ....... #MentalHealth #Anxiety #Depression #longcovid #CheckInWithMe #Cancer

I'm not even sure if that makes sense, I'm not really sure of anything right now!today I was told that my urgent referral to get the swollen lump lymph node in my neck may take upto 6 weeks !ive had it since Sept last uear and was palmed off numeroustimes till last week my specialistsaid she was very concerned(and that is being classed as urgent)Due to my previous cancer and treatment before Covid hit and now to the way this is being handled and considering I had Covid and was hospitalised for nearly 6 weeks and since have been suffering Long covid issues I know how serious it is.But I felt so angry that I'm already dealing with all my usual issues,then this catheter in,still retaining, slipped disc so on crutches to get about and everyday and night I am worried sick about if this lump is serious !and now thinking I may have to feel like this for however many weeks/months and then even if it is serious the care at the moment chemo/treatments most people are having to wait months to get anything started due to the way it's all been since covid.I am angry at my body for failing me in the first place ,for getting to this ,I'm angry at having to feel like I'm begging someone to help or listen ,I feel like I've prepared for the worst now anyways and what hope is there to have !I know hospitals and staff have and do do their best and I'm not saying anything against that I'm just frustrated that myself and millions of others and people way worse off than me are suffering even more even when it's serious or terminal. I'm scared ,I'm angry ,I'm frustrated and then I just feel numb because right now I'm here and I'm a Mummy I have to just be as ok as I can which is difficult enough at the minute ........
