Covid Safe Dates

I'm in desperate need of date ideas! Because of all the health issues my family members deal with, I've been taking classes online and my parents are mostly working from home. We take as many precautions as we can. But, my boyfriend's family isn't as safe and he's attending college in person. We had been meeting at parks or sitting out on my deck, but now that it's cold we're out of ideas. What are some safe things we could do that won't leave us stuck out in the cold? #ChiariMalformation #ArnoldChiariMalformation #ChronicMigraines #Lupus #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #CeliacDisease #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Asthma #Spondylolisthesis #DegenerativeDiscDisease #Anxiety #Depression #ChronicPain #AutoimmuneDisease

TW self harm
I could really use some uplifting tonight. I've been doing really good for a long time, I haven't self harmed in almost 2 years, but I got the urge to cut tonight for the first time in a long time. #Anxiety #Depression #Selfharm #MentalHealth

Hypocrite

TW: suicidal thoughts
I feel like such a hypocrite. I talk about normalizing mental health and how no one should be ashamed to be struggling, but today I got my first therapy appointment scheduled and lied when asked the assessment questions. I told them I've never had suicidal thoughts, but I did. A lot. It's been a couple years since Ive really thought about it but it still was a huge issue for me for so long. If I can't even be honest about my issues, what's the point? #Anxiety #Depression #PanicDisorder #MentalHealth

Please help!

Please help this amazing family. A close family friend passed away last night. She had stage 4 lung cancer and has been fighting so hard to stick around for her family. She left behind 5 kids, grandkids, and her loving husband, as well as all of the people who's lives she's touched. She was an amazing woman that would do just about anything for anyone that asked. For a short period a couple years ago me and my sister were between houses and she took us in even though her family of 5 were already short on space in a 3 bedroom house. They are struggling with funeral costs, so please help out in any way you can. Anything is appreciated.

For migraine based anxiety, depression,and overall moodiness should I talk to my neurologist or see a therapist?

For a few hours or sometimes even a day or more before I get a really bad migraine I get extremely anxious to the point that I can't focus and when I'm coming back down from one I get depressed. And sometimes when the pain is worst I get moody, sometimes even downright mean. I know it's happening but I can't do anything but wait it out. #Migraine #ChiariMalformation #Anxiety #Depression #ChronicPain

How do I get through prom?

My senior prom is this weekend and I'm the middle of a flare up, but I've decided I'm going to push through and go anyway. Any advice would be helpful. Tips to minimize the pain after or things I should throw in the emergency bag I plan on bringing, really anything to help me not worry about the consequences I know are coming.
