Ich will gar nicht wissen, wie oft ich mich schon bei anderen dafür entschuldigt habe, dass es mir nicht gut geht. Dafür, dass ich deshalb gewisse Dinge nicht tun will oder kann. Oder dafür, dass ich nicht mehr so aufrichtig Spaß haben kann wie früher. Oder, oder, oder... Denn ich habe Angst, anderen dadurch Unannehmlichkeiten zu bereiten oder den Spaß zu verderben. Und je mehr ich mich für meine Gefühle entschuldige, desto schlechter geht es mir. Wenn man sowieso schon mit viel zu vielen Emotionen zu kÀmpfen hat, dann sind Schuldgefühle wirklich das letzte, das man zusÀtzlich noch braucht. Deshalb habe ich mir vorgenommen, mich nicht mehr für Gefühle oder Beschwerden, die Symptome meiner Depression sind, zu entschuldigen. Und ich hoffe, ihr macht das entweder schon genau so oder nehmt es auch ab heute vielleicht ebenfalls vor! Das heißt natürlich nicht, dass man sich ab sofort gemein oder egoistisch anderen gegenüber verhalten soll. Sondern einfach nur, dass man sich selbst bewusst macht, dass es richtig und wichtig ist auf das zu hâren, was der eigene Kârper einem sagt, und dass man sich dafür bei niemandem rechtfertigen oder gar entschuldigen muss. Denn je mehr man dagegen ankÀmpft, desto schlimmer wird es.⁠ ⁠ Wer kennt das auch?⁠ ⁠ #depression #anxiety #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthmatters #mentalegesundheit #seelischegesundheit #weitermachen #nichtaufgeben #sprücheundtexte #zitatefürsleben #chronischkrank #zitatezumnachdenken #gedankenwelt #worte #recovery #chronicillness #feelthefeels #selfcare #selflove #selfcompassion #sgcspotlight #endthestigma #endthestigmaofmentalhealth #youarenotalone #quoteoftheday #inspirationalquotes #inspirationalwords ⁠

Today, more than ever there is an intensified need to prevent suicide related deaths in our community. We are committed to the preservation of life at the Novato Police Department and awareness/prevention is a top priority. The time is NOW. Far too often, people feel shamed for the feelings/thoughts they are having that can lead to a devastating outcome. Feelings of shame or stigma prevent people, including families of loved ones affected, from talking openly. Open communication may not be the sole resolution to changing the course, leading to a brighter future. However, it opens the door to begin the support process early, to help avoid crisis or even death. Hope starts today. β€’ β€’ β€’ β€’ #YOUMATTER Β #Suicide Β #SuicidePrevention Β #SuicideAwareness #MentalHealthAwareness Β #PreservationofLife Β #EndtheStigma Marin County Buckelew Suicide Prevention: 415-499-1100 National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK(8255) North Bay Suicide Prevention 24-hour hotline: 1-855-587-6373

I’ve been working with my therapist for about 2.5 months now. He’s given me PLENTY of techniques to help reduce my symptoms but saying these πŸ” things out loud to myself has helped me panic attacks the most. It’s more than just affirmations, it’s getting you to a point where you’re distracted and the panic subsides.

So if you’ve been following my journey you’ll know, I’m basically a walking death bed... I’ve got mental health issues ADHD-BIPOLAR-EUPD but, recently I’ve been diagnosed with a rare disease following numerous of hospital visits and that I have a small tumor on the back of my brain too. Since this and before, i suffer my own shit daily, weekly and monthly mentally and physically but, I’ve been blacking out and having dizziness (star gazing just seeing pure black and ringing in my ears), so now I’m on a heart monitor to measure how my heart keeps stopping and starting, and then following my blood pressure. It’s a constant daily battle I live with, scared to shower alone- incase I drop in there (which I already have), shopping trips, basically anything. So, due to my illness my blood pressure drops and remains super low always, anyway, so it’s a never ending game. I must keep this on now for some days and hopefully we can figure out what’s next, and if not, I must try and keep hopeful that we will figure it out eventually #keepfighting #talktococo #heartmonitor #healthiswealth
Self care is the little things too. Take care of yourself!
Happy hump day Queens & Kings! πŸ‘ΈπŸΎπŸ€΄πŸΏ. We have just a couple more days until the weekend, keep pushing πŸ’› SB: Has anyone else experienced an intense/crazy week so far? 😳 Feel free to share in the comment section below!
Part Three! Everyone struggles to get out of bed sometimes. The world can be overwhelming... there might be stressors that you are worried about... maybe a big conversation you want to avoid. This article on 10 ways to help you consistently get out of bed, and discover when it might be more of a concern. https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/325712.php When do I know this is more of a problem than these 10 solutions? Well - when you realize it is happening more days than not. When it is coupled with other symptoms of depression. When it is impacting your ability to work, maintain relationships or take care of your self in other ways. Contact your Therapist (you have one right? Everyone needs one), Doctor or reach out to a friend and have them help you get the support you need. #depression #mentalhealth #getoutofbed #toomuchnotenoughbook #lifeishard #getupshowup #endthestigma #createjoy #sleepisimportant #takecareofyourself #selfcare

FOUR YEARS!!πŸ’₯πŸ’₯ Four years ago we walked into a courtroom and left there with full custody of our children after jumping through hoops for 16 months! I've had to navigate through some painful situations in #recovery but proving to be a good #mother was the hardest and most rewarding. The drug test, parenting classes, visitations, and heartbreak WAS ALL WORTH IT. I was determined to see it through and stay #sober no matter what the result was. I LOVE being a #sobermom and spending my days raising four beautiful girls. Times have changed, from scheduling visitation appointments to working put my school schedule with theirs. My little family of 6 has come a long way!βš‘πŸ‘©πŸΌπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ™‹πŸ»β€β™‚οΈ #reunification #thisisreunification #sobriety #soberparents #thepromises #lovewhatmatters #recoverylifestyle #familygoals #rowetriplets
Give this a read and let’s please talk - - - REPOST FROM @psychosocial_media Being a member of the Latinx community is by no means an easy feat. Even if we are privileged enough to be citizens of the United States we deal with the repercussions of historical trauma and dangerous rhetoric normalized by the Trump Presidency. β € β € Many of us are forced to hold it together as we watch the world descend into an unforseen future. Read this authentic and raw contribution from our contributor, @thehoodsocialworker as she discusses how the United States has slowly marched into modern day genocide. β € β € It’s important that as members of the Latinx community we talk about the psychological, emotional, and physical impact that the ICE raids, Detention camps, and Racism cause us as individuals and as a community. Even as Latinx therapists we are impacted and we struggle with the same anxiety and depression as the people we serve. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below about @thehoodsocialworker ’s perspective! β € β € #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #psychosocial #endthestigma #politics #trumpadministration #ICEraids #Latinx #genocide #trauma
It has taken me many years of un-programming and reprogramming on what it means to be beautiful and confident. To say it was a rocky journey would be a massive understatement.
