*Trigger Warning *
I lost a acquaintance of mine but a friend to many of my friends this week.
She sadly completed suicide.
My heart breaks for all who knew her.
She was a Christian, I still struggle with all that means. I Pray she is at Peace with Jesus.
My thoughts and emotions are all over the place. Still fighting the good fight every day.

Are You Allowed to Express Yourself (Especially Anger)?

My boyfriend dominates me when he doesn't like what I'm saying, especially if I'm expressing anger. If he says something hurtful and I speak up about it, or he tells me I can't do something (especially when it's ok for him), he speaks louder and firmer, in a dominate tone. I came back the other day after being out, and he had a pizza. He hasn't gotten me a pizza in over two years, because it's too expensive, he says. He's not a big fan of pizza. I was really hurt and angry, because I've asked several times if we could get one. Just as I started to say something, he raised his voice and got real stern: "A friend bought it for me." Later, I realized accepting a pizza from a friend isn't something I should be angry about, but my first reaction upon seeing that was hurt. I'm not allowed to be hurt, angry, or upset. I've bawled, and he just sits or lays in bed, ignoring me. Does anyone else experience this from their partner?

What is your least favourite question to be asked? #MentalHealth #Depression #Anxiety #CPTSD

I'm curious, what is your least favourite question to be asked? Mine is "what do you do in your spare time?" because honestly the answer is "survive, cry, numb, binge eat" etc and that isn't a particularly socially acceptable answer. I tend to just answer with random hobbies that I do infrequently and don't even enjoy that much, just to fill the dead space. Your question can be anything! It doesn't have to be directly addressing mental health.
