@marinoc838
I am a 22 yr. old psychology student, doodle mom (emotional support dog), and mental health advocate. I am also planning on minoring in nutrition. I struggle/have struggled with various different health issues and chronic conditions - depression, anxiety, BPD, ADHD, PTSD, interstitial cystitis, Functional Neurologic Disorder, GI issues, POTS, Mold Illness (CIRS), Chronic Lyme Disease, etc. Most likely have joint hypermobility and delayed gastric emptying as well. I am also in recovery from an eating disorder, but I am trying not to let these illnesses stop me from living my life and reaching my goals. Many times I’ve wanted to give up but each time was reminded to keep fighting. I have a life worth living and so do you!!!

PTSD from mental hospital

I was put in physical restraints in the mental hospital and now have symptoms of ptsd. It was a really scary experience and I felt so helpless and claustrophobic being strapped down and unable to move. I know the health care workers thought they were doing the right thing to keep me safe, but I felt it was unneccessary and did more harm then good. Has anyone had this experience and has anything helped you recover? I feel anxious laying in bed at night :( #Anxiety #Depression #PTSD #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #mentalhospital

Stimming with anxiety, ptsd, sensory overload

I know that many people associate stimming with autism; however I’ve been struggling really bad lately due to severe anxiety and ptsd. I will rock back and forth, flap my hands and sometimes go non-verbal #SelectiveMutism I’m trying to learn ways to cope, but it’s really hard. Anything help any of y’all with this issue?

Hypomanic and BPD

Hi y’all, a topic I’d like to talk about is BPD and hypomanic symptoms. I feel like the mood swings can be so intense I can go from like euphoric one minute to really depressed. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this and what’s helped you. Not sure what triggered the episode 🤔 it just sorta happened. Maybe lack of sleep or stress idk 😐 tonight I was feeling seriously 😳 up and not sleeping at all. Very restless and irritable! I actually ended up cutting my hair of though and that was fun. I just I just need advice on how to deal . . . So grateful for this community!!! #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #Hypomania #Insomnia
