Found this online. This is so true. How many of us have said this? Im guilty! We are ALL deserving of love and care, even when we feel like nothing.

TMS offers hope to those struggling with #depression. If you have tried multiple anti-depressants with inadequate results, OR if you prefer a non-medicated and non-invasive treatment for managing depression without the harsh side effects of drugs, then deep TMS therapy may be for you. 💚

These days I take enough medicines that it warrants a pill organizer! B12, probiotic, antacid (I swear my heartburn can rival that of a middle aged man sometimes) and.... an antidepressant! Yeah, I said it! I take an antidepressant every day.
Long before my journey of improving my physical health came along I had been working real hard on improving my mental health. I’ve struggled with depression and anxiety for a lot of years, but my freshman year of college was especially hard and it hit me like it never had before.
But now, going into my junior year of college, I am the happiest and healthiest and I love myself more than I ever have in my life! And therapy and medication is an incredible tool that helped get me here. I had to get my mental health in order before I was ready to focus on losing weight, and these days my mental and physical health go totally hand in hand.
Remember friends, whatever is going on, you are not alone. If anyone wants to start a conversation about mental or physical health, I would absolutely love that. Mucho love!!

Social Anxiety is real, but it lacks consideration. It's not that people are "shy" or "antisocial" , its an actual disorder that interferes with our everyday activities.
-
For me, I am shy, but I try so hard to socialize but, even so I cant without getting extreme anxiety, or simply being socially awkward. I dont know how to approach people or make a conversation🙃 Ive been avoiding applying for jobs ,because I know it requires an interview and the thought of it makes me extremely anxious. I hate it. If any of ya'll have tips to manage Social Anxiety , or be outgoing , or simply anything , comment below or DM me 😊❤️ #mentalhealthsupport #mentalhealthawareness #fightthestigma #qouteoftheday #qoutw #inspiration #youmatter #socialanxietydisorder #sociallyawkward #help #advocate

What does it mean to “feel blue?” Two kites discuss just this in an adorable video by Augmenta Health, an Indian mental health organization. The video touches on issues such as negative feelings, isolation, low self-esteem, societal pressures and expectations, fear of being dependent on others for help, and self-shaming. ··· If someone you love is experiencing symptoms of depression, you can help by educating yourself about the disorder and talking with them. As the video indicates, encouraging others #SpeakUp about “the blues” can allow you to understand what your loved one is experiencing, and support them. Take a look at the rest of the video to see how the conversation can go.

how to pamper urself when ur feeling low: make ur bed up w clean sheets. run a hot bath w bubbles & add a few drops of lavender essential oil (this will help u sleep) & any other bath smelly things u have lying around. pour yourself a cold glass of water n put some lemon in it (this will hydrate u & drinking lemon water makes me feel 13694 times healthier dunno bout u). put on ur all time fav music (but make sure all the toonz have happy mems attached - this is a night to smile not to be sad). slip into said bath n sip lemon water while jamming. after ur bath slather ur whole body in coconut oil or another moisturiser. put on ur sexiest underwear & slip into ur clean sheets. read a mag u love or write ur diary or simply drift off to sleeeeep // i am still in lurve w street art esp ripped posters ? it’s abstract n contrasting n so funky n i love it // where’s my love - SYML 🌹

I have regrets but none of them involve sweat. I worry sometimes that Even the Strong comes across as exercise evangelism. I don't think it can cure or save you. I don't even think you should exercise if you don't want to or can't for whatever reason. Not exercising is not a character flaw, in the same way your body is not flawed no matter what you look like. That's you and you're awesome.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But I know that it helps me in ways I'm still understanding. There's the science of its ability to elevate mood, the chemical reactions and neurotransmitters and physical adaptations. There's the useful metaphor of it, of pushing past my limits and feeling strong and accomplishing goals. There's the mindfulness aspect, the way it forces me to live in the present for a moment, lest I fall on my face or drop something heavy on my trachea. There's also the community aspect, if you're into group classes or team sports or running buddies (which I only sometimes am). And I discover new things about it to love all the time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It doesn't mean I always love sweating. It doesn't mean I always make it to the gym or the park. But I do always try to remind myself that it helps. That maybe no one thing, exercise or otherwise, can cure me. But if this thing and that thing and that other thing all help me in small ways, maybe together over time it will all help in a bigger way. Fitness takes time, but even that I'm finding therapeutic. It's been teaching me about how to hope, how to recoup, how to hold on, how to rest. That things go slow, but slow motion adds up faster than no motion.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
More and more I find it's the metaphor of movement that I find more useful than anything. I sweat because it makes sense to me. I don't feel like I'm just working out. I'm working through shit, and I'm learning about myself in ways that I don't from just meditation and therapy. It's all part of that same mix to me. I believe in the importance of mind/body connection, and not in a Woo Woo new age way. Just because the connection is real, and I think it's important. It's there on the mat every time I'm finished. I sweat for the state of mind. How about you? ⚫️⚫️🖤

Inspired by @rebecca_o198
I'm sick of people judging homeless ppl a friend of mine became homeless and its really saď to see him
I do get him cigarettes though i know its bad for him but its an #addiction
If people dont support him he Will smoke more
I got him food to eat and people said i was crazy i said if it was you in this situation you'd know starvation and wished you never said that
So
stop judging #drugaddiction and the #homeless
#help #sos don't leave them #starving even if you think they deserve it because nobody knows why they're drug addicts or why they are homeless so please stop
They could be #fightingdepression or #anxiety #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #homelesspeople
Why not help build a #homelessshelter a suport group instead of sneering at them ffs

Do 💖you💖 have someone or something that has taught you life lessons?
This girl and this pup have taught me so much 💖😍
*patience
*empathy
*love
*joy
My youngest daughter struggles with emotional control/outbursts. She calls herself the 💚Hulk💚, and that is an appropriate nickname for her. However, that is a tale for another time..
But, this pup has made a big difference the older she gets. She is learning to be more patient and somehow even more loving and compassionate than she already is 😍
What has been a life lesson that you have experienced from someone or something you did not expect?

Sometimes it comes out of nowhere, sometimes my triggers are very obvious stressful events in my life. I have suffered since around the age of 15... and if you know me, you probably had no idea. My symptoms came and went through the years and when I was younger and very out of tune with my body I would always think "ugggggh it's back"... IT. IT is back. I had no clue there was help for what I was feeling. It was my biggest secret. Nothing about IT was easy. Nothing about it will ever be easy, but as soon as I admittedly started seeking help from God and family/speaking out about awareness of mental health, facing my fears, it has gotten easier for me. Not feeling alone in this battle is why it is getting easier. #speakyourtruth #mymentalhealthjourney #fightthestigma #anxiety #depression #seekhelp #youarentalone

400 years ago the mentally ill were described as satanic; people were tortured, hanged and burned. In the colonial era the ill were “treated” with bloodletting, “swinging” and dousing with ice cold water. Less than 100 years ago people were lobotomized, sometimes against their will, to “calm” them. We’ve come leaps and bounds in the field of psychiatry and mental health awareness/treatment but there is still so much left to be done. #fightthestigma #endthestigma #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #psychiatry #glorepsychiatricmuseum #medicine

Old pic of me. I designed and screenprinted the logo myself and would love to make it into more merch one day. The quote just came to mind because it is such an important motto for me these challenging days. It is so important for me to be brave, to not leave anything unspoken. To have laughter take the sting out of everything. At the same time, it's the softness that makes everything bearable. It's one hell of a ride. 🖤

A lil bit of dark humor, but its so true. One of the things Im most proud of is how strong I have been during these 7 months I have struggled with GAD. My anxiety was so bad, It was taking over everything and I didnt know how to stop it. Due to this, I was slowly transitioning into depression because it upset me how I couldnt do anything about it and no one understood how I felt. Indeed, I talked to my parents about it and they guided me through counseling and medication, but even so, they never really got it. They still sometimes belittle my disorder and it makes me feel like shit. #mentalhealthsupport #mentalillnessawareness #gethelp #youmatter #yougotthis #meme #qoute #inspiration #motivation #anxiety #depression #advocate #support #mentalhealth #fightthestigma

#bluebookswednesday #onwednesdayswepostblue #booksnotbullies 💙
Tonight I want to talk about something not popular. Because it NEEDS talked about more. It's the little things that plague us and most suffer silently. About this time last year, I went through a life change and was practically dragged out of a dangerous depression. And this year it seems I am bound to face a new journey called "finding myself." And though I am full of anxiety, I wanted to reach out to those that are on here suffering. I will always be here to chat! If you're feeling down, don't be afraid to reach out. You may think the things stressing you are little but a lot of times those little things add up to big things. And it is a big deal cause it's your health and life we're talking about! Feel free to message me anytime!
.
Yes, the depression may be at bay or gone but I'm still full of anxiety. Life isn't perfect but I've found an amazing counselor and now I have something I didnt before...Hope. Or maybe I did but it took a counselor to make me see it. So please again don't feel ashamed! #fightthestigma
.
Imagine your mind feeling in a fog, numb, like your whole being is paralyzed. Imagine it being a recurring thing days at a time. It affects your life your functioning even until you feel like you can't reply to a simple message or comment on your IG. Apparently, my SPD aka Sensory Processing Disorder was affecting me in a much larger way than I imagined! And I figured it out all from a counselor now im working on was to ground myself and feel more like I exist in my body.
..
Please don't think im sharing this for attention or to glorify it! This is a call to action to get help and reach out to others so they don't feel alone! #iamnotmyillness #fightthefear

Hope is real. Help is real. Your story is important. 💖 Showing some love to @TWLOHA, a non-profit organization that I have absolutely loved since their inception in 2006. It started with a story about helping a friend through her struggle with drug addiction, depression and self-injury. I picked up some merch at @VansWarpedTour yesterday (aka throwing mad cash down like a boss because if anybody deserves it, it is TWLOHA). I almost cried when @Steveo_4200 pointed out their tent to me (I almost didn't see it)! I just started reading 'If You Feel Too Much' by @JamieTworkowski and am soo excited about it! Thank you for all that you do. You have inspired me to find hope and love in the darkest moments of my life, and to help others do the same. I am finally in a stable and happy place along my journey of recovery. It took me over a decade to get here but could have potentially taken longer without the guidance, encouragement and support that TWLOHA is known for. Thank you for allowing me to find strength to go on, peace to ease my mind, resilience to pick myself back up, and most importantly, hope to believe in greater days ahead. 🌟

I woke up around 1am still not feeling well and wandered to take some meds. When I made it back to bed, for some reason I decided to check my e-mail, there staring me in the face was an e-mail from my dad. I opened with caution as we haven't spoken outside of family events in over a decade, I'm not even sure how he got my email. .
.
I only managed to read part of it before reaching out to the Boy. I was in slight panic mode, so i sent it to him to read and then continued to process it all with him once I gave in and finished reading it. .
.
It was over an hour before I got my breathing back to normal, and by the time I fell asleep again I was just full of anger. .
.
It has been 18 years and he just seems to have FINALLY realized what he did wasn't okay and that he messed up. He wants forgiveness and a relationship again. He wants to get to know me again. .
.
Twelve or so years ago he had a second chance, I tried so hard and part of me was glad to have my dad back until one day about a year later, he flipped again and was just awful. We haven't spoken since. .
.
This is someone I am genuinely afraid of. Sure I can be in a room with him and have a cordial conversation with if needed at some kind of family event, but it stays basic and I know when I leave I won't see or talk to him again for years. .
.
My dad doesn't exist anymore, he hasn't for years. The person he is now is a stranger that I don't feel comfortable being around. .
.
Today the sun won and it outshined me. I am sick and the panic and lack of sleep from hearing from him made for a long night and rough morning. So today I stayed home and let myself have a break from the world today. I'm still angry but I have a kind reaponse forming in my head. In the end the answer to him will still be no, but I can be kind about it.
.
.
Tomorrow, I plan on not letting the sun outshine again. ♡

"Living at home is truly such a nightmare. Sometimes it’ll be so silent that the volume of my thoughts magnifies or it’ll be so loud that I can’t even think straight. After a long day of work or school, I go back home thinking I’ll be able to recalibrate but each visit is filled with tears, screams, and despair. I often ask myself why I don’t just leave and get my own place so that I can move forth with my life but then I always go back to the fact that I’ve become the glue for the family. My brother is off at medical school in Dallas perfecting his future with his wife and here I am, alone, in Houston trying to make ends meet with two parents that can’t seem to cooperate. Reasoning with either of them is like trying to mix oil and water-- pointless. I feel this burning sensation in my chest everytime I enter my home but a part of me can’t seem to move on. If I don’t try to fix this family then who will?
···
My dad is an incredibly sensitive and temperamental individual. In my 22 years of life, I’ve only had a couple of fulfilling conversations with him. It’s either him speaking for the both of us or just a ping-pong of yells and madness. His superiority complex always gets the best of him and he makes me feel bad about myself because I’m not at the same level of life he is. I have a very outgoing and eccentric personality whereas he’s more reserved and collected. I admire him for his tenacity and success but I just want him to talk to me like I’m his daughter and not someone he has an impersonal relationship with. I always envy seeing my friends having such bonded and emotional relationships with their fathers. Makes me yearn for the day that I’ll be able to get that similar kind of love and appreciation..."

#funfact about addictions. I had someone tell me today that a heroin addiction and craving is far worse than being an alcoholic wanting a drink, or maybe wanting a cigarette after you've quit for a while. By God's good graces, if I make it to Sunday, it will be 8 years no drinking. I would be lying if I said I never think about it. I do. Just like a drug addict is looking for their next fix, I was putting in equal work trying to get my next bottle. Stop making excuses for people who choose not to be strong. I'm an addict too. I just fight harder. #rant #addiction #alcoholism #professionalalcoholic #retired #noexcuses #pleasegethelp #fightthestigma #dontevercompareanicotineaddictiontoanything #manthispissedmeoff

What are you thankful for today?💖💖😍 I am thankful for several things today.. the wonderful nurses who are taking care of my grandfather, my kiddos for teaching me patience 🤣🤣, my personal development book that is teaching me how to love myself and not feel selfish about doing it... But another one I am so thankful for in this very moment is my muscle recovery drink 😄 💪 💖

I have worked out without it before and have not been able to walk the next day 😆 since I have started using it with my workouts I am able to actually get around and up and down my stairs after a hard workout 💖💪💖 One of the ingredients is pomegranate, and it is scientifically proven to aid with delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) that you feel the next day sometimes even the day after you workout.
Today, I am grateful I can walk around without saying ow under my breath 😂🤣😂 What are you grateful for?
