Not All Saviors Has Wings. Sometimes They Have Paws.

On this Monday as I wait for sleep to get here (it is now 4:07am)… I just wanted to give a shout out to my little Hunter baby here.

On December 17, 2022 I had every intention of adopting a doggy and giving him a home.m, not knowing that eventually I would see that I was wrong about me being the savior… he saves me every day.

If you have a wonderful furbaby like Hunter here, give them a big hug and a kiss on their head for they stick with us even when we are at our lowest.

If you don’t have a furbaby (yet), give the person you love or even the person who’s been by your side, never giving up a hug of appreciation.

Let them know how much we appreciate them being in our lives, even at times we might not show it.

Also, give yourself a hug, because YOU are one STRONG individual and I and Hunter believe in you.

Please #stay

I’ve been buying myself a lot of #motivationalshirtsANDsweaters online ever since I found one that spoke to my #soul - and this one sweater pictured here is my favorite one.

It says… “Stay” with added words on the right sleeve… “The world is a better place with you in it.”

Whenever I wear this, my eyes would always drift to my arm and it brings me a little #Hope at a time of getting through this.

I want people to be more #informed and more #aware that the things we go through is a real #illness and that a lot of us suffer from it.

After having a conversation with my favorite #maillady I found out that she too was in my shoes. We both agreed that #oneword or even a #friendlyacknowledgment from someone (that let’s you know that you’re #NotInvisible ) can help us get through the day. Like another shirt of mine says…

“You are #NeverAlone - Keep fighting… everyone is fighting a battle we know nothing about.”

I just want the #stigmatoend and have people more #aware because in certain cases, not knowing how to react to something in an #Understanding and #positive way, and instead react #negatively , but not on purpose, that their reactions have the ability to #trigger us back downward, or make the rest of our day #happy

If no one told you today…

You don't owe anyone anything ..... #MentalHealth #Depression #Anxiety #selfcare #ChronicIllness #ChronicPain

You don't owe anyone anything , if someone does not show the same respect you show them then that is on them . Sometimes we have to do what's right and what's best for us .We have to put ourselves first and that's ok.Don't ever feel wrong for putting yourself first , sometimes we have to do this in order to either protect ourselves or to grow as a person.

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
