Major Depressive Disorder A year ago it was explained to me in great detail what living with MDD feels like. It felt like clouds were finally clearing in my mind. Everything made sense, I understood myself more than I ever had. It has been a year of self-reflection and discovery but that does not mean I am always feeling 100%. I believe it is necessary for me to share some of this because last week was absolutely grueling and I had to pull myself out of the dark “sunken” place. . . . So, here are some things people who love me need to know: 1. I will always seem to be doing ok or well. 2. A lot of effort goes into pushing myself to socialize. 3. If you happen to catch a glimpse of me with my happy face off, do not tell me to GET OVER IT, trust me, 10/10 I don’t even know what IT is. 4. You don’t have to say anything at all, you can smile and I’ll know you give a shit, it’s cool. 5. Don’t stop yourself from reaching out to me because you think I’m dealing with too much, a simple hello goes a long way on any day. ; ; ; There are tons of other things I wish I could think to add. If you have someone in your life who is living with #MDD my advice is to do your research, that person might need someone. 🌻 🌻 🌻 #majordepressivedisorder #iamnotashamed #depressionisaliar #youcouldsavealife #endpillshaming
Entry no. 10 First day of DBT tomorrow morning. I'm super excited. I've been feeling really good. My meds have been going well and the side effects have been lessening day by day. I'm feeling more confident and more like who I'm supposed to be underneathe all the self hate talk in my head constantly. I feel free. I'm excited to learn more about myself and incorporate skills into my life, for real this time. This is the second time around and I'm making this the last shot. No focus other than this. I wanna get better. I wanna take my life back that everyone else took from me. I want the years of pain and suffering to bloom into a future of self awareness, peace, and happiness. I deserve to be happy. I deserve a "normal" life. Fuck everyone who stole the me I'll never get back.. and say hello to the me who's fed the fuck up. Don't get in my way. I'm not giving up. #DBT #therapy #bpd #bpdrecovery #bpdproblems #keeptalkingMH #breakthestigma #medications #meds #endpillshaming #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #eupd #mentalhealth #mentalillness #power #strength #mentalillnessrecovery #personalgrowth #diary
Weekly pill fill 💊 1/2 of these are prescription while the other half are supplements. In addition, my rheumatologist finally decided to put me on an antibiotic because I haven’t gotten any better. As much as I preach eating healthy and being holistic, my body NEEDS medication right now...and there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.
I literally walked out of class the other day when the MENTAL HEALTH AND RECOVERY teacher made a statement that it’s proven that if people exercise they don’t need pills for their mental health. EXCUSE ME?! I felt personally affronted because I could run 1000 miles a day and it’s not going to take away my past trauma and chemical imbalances in my brain. I approached her at the end of class and told her how it was offensive, she apologized but more of a “sorry you were offended” than a “sorry I was wrong.” I’m still shook. Some people have no choice but to take meds if they want to function, and I’m one of them. #ENDPILLSHAMING . . . art: @makedaisychains . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthadvocate #addiction #sober #recovery #recoveyisworthit #recoveryispossible #depressionquotes #depression #anxiety #anxietyquotes #ptsd #cptsd #bipolar #pmdd #depressed #selfcare #selflove #loveyourself #inspirationalquotes #inspiration #motivationalquotes #motivation #sad #life #quote #words
#mommacat likes to be 'helpful' when I get my 💊 filled for the week. I put her to work closing the compartments. Towards the end of the tedious task, she called for reinforcement and #miapia came in to do a quick quality check. 👍🏼 She told me we did a 'purr-fect' job. 🙀 #furriends #fursquad #purrbabies #spoonielife #chronicallyill #endpillshaming
PSYCHIATRIC MEDICATION - when I first started taking medication I was 17 and really didn’t have a choice if I wanted to build a life for myself. Not only was I unable to function but my mental illnesses posed a very real threat to my life. ~ I sometimes wonder if I would have a different view about psychiatric meds today, if I hadn’t been so unwell when I started taking them? 😳 I hope I wouldn’t but the unfortunate truth is that unless you’re about to kill yourself any time in the foreseeable future (whether that’s through reckless behaviour, substance abuse, starving yourself, self harming or suicide) there is a messed up perception that you just need to try harder. ~ I come up against this attitude time and time again from friends, loved ones, strangers and even health care professionals. And I think these attitudes partly stem from a believe that mental health conditions are less legitimate than physical ones as well as a misunderstanding of how they work and a lack of awareness about the extent to which they can revolutionalise a persons life. ~ All medication has possible negative side effects and each individual should weigh up the pros and cons for themselves, with advice from medical professionals. . . but I don’t know why I’m even writing that because surely it’s obvious? 🙄🙄🙄 I doubt any of the people who have questioned my decision would be so quick to share their views if my health conditions were physical. ~ Basically what I’m trying to say is DONT LET STIGMA STOP YOU FROM DOING WHATS RIGHT FOR YOU 💜💛❤️💚💙🧡 medication is never a sign of weakness, or ‘taking the easy way out’ (whatever that even means 🤷🏻♀️) ~ Picture is my favourite #boringselfcare #drawing from the awesome @makedaisychains check out her page 🌸🌸🌸 #boringselfcare60 #endpillshaming #itsokaynottobeokay #itsoktotakemedication #youdoyou #endthestigma #mentalhealthrecovery #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthisreal #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthissues #mentalhealthadvocate #repost #adhding
