Okay,  so … I am only like … 2 days late…. BUT! This was meant to be my #mentalhealthmonday post, as hosted by @wherebookscollide#betterlatethannever
.
I received an ARC of Weight Expectations by @dave_chawner in exchange for my honest review, so a big thank-you to @netgalley and @jkpbooks for the early read.
.
🌸 Review:
Dave Chawner is a comedian and this is his mental health memoir revolving around his history with an eating disorder.
This book was everything I wanted it to be! It was raw and honest, and I, quite frankly, really appreciated the awareness brought to eating disorders existing for men too!  We almost never see representation of male fictional characters with eating disorders, and so I think that this is an incredibly important read. It also showed how EDs aren’t glamorous or vane, they are often just coping mechanisms for when someone loses a sense of control in their life, (or other stressors).
I would highly suggest Weight Expectations to anyone who enjoys non-fictional mental health related books, however want to mention an obvious content warning for Anorexia.
.
✨ QOTD: What was your last non-fictional read?

Why suicide is seen as something bad? I mean seriously the real bad thing is pushing someone to do it cause they see it's the only way to escape.

A whole cantaloupe
Cherries
.
Monday was my first hospitalization. I’ve been subjected to bunch of surveys, tests, checkups, experiences, blood tests... I have met a nurse, two doctors, a psychologist and a neurologist along the day. They asked me many questions about my past, weight, desire of living, diet... This has been an intense day (as physically as mentally as emotionally). It has been hard and a shock to confront myself to a real hospital environment for the first time: to catch these interned girls jailed into walls and grids, to being supervised by a nurse as I ate the carrots setting in the lunch plate (I couldn’t touch anything else displayed on it), to being forbidden to walk out... When I left the hospital by the late of afternoon, I surprisingly felt... feared of walking among “normal people”... I mean, in the hospital I was normal, like a sick person among (even more) sick persons. Anyway, I think, I stand out stronger of this first experience... Round II on Friday...

I've always wanted any kind of blog to be honest and open - not everything is great and we all have problems and troubles that are unique to us. For me, one of my big issues is sleep. I know, ironic for a blog that has 'sleep' in the name... Not being able to sleep is horrible and has plenty of negative benefits.

According to www.webmd.com, lack of sleep/insomnia "can lead to serious health problems, including heart disease, heart attack, heart failure, high bloody pressure and diabetes". It can also damage your sex drive and increase symptoms of depression and anxiety. For men, lack of sleep can have a massively negative effect on testosterone levels. It also greatly impairs your judgement.
Visually, your skin will age more quickly due to the lack of the restorative power of sleep and your hunger hormones will be affected, leading you to make poor food choices.

Again, from www.webmd.com: "Recent research has focused on the link between sleep and the peptides that regulate appetite. Ghrelin stimulates hunger and leptin signals satiety to the brain and suppresses appetite. Shortened sleep time is associated with decreases in leptin and elevations in ghrelin.” I found not being able to sleep adds to my anxiety: will I get any sleep? How am going to cope with work? Will I ever sleep well again?! Insomnia feeds your anxiety and adds fuel to all your negative feelings and doubts. Sometimes, you can forgot what it feels like to be well rested and full of energy - you just get stuck in a rut and go through the day on autopilot.

There is help through medication but I've never wanted to try this, although I have been taking a zinc & magnesium supplement to help with both my anxiety and. At times, I think it's having an effect but then on other days it's feel like I'm back where I started.

I am trying different things with my nutrition so will write again at a later date about that. I have read some research and personal stories where people have added carbs to their evening meals and the release of serotonin this caused has helped them to feel relaxed and sleepy, and led to a better night's sleep. This is something I'll report back in a later post.

Be kind 😇
Since i mentioned my anxiety on the gram, i got to talk to few people that are dealing with same issues, some people i know in person and some that i dont.
I wish people were more aware of it because people with anxiety are constantly going back and forth between “ everyone else has it together but you, and so many people have it tougher than you” “ get your act together and suck it up” “ youre okay stop being such a baby” “ youre not okay you are messing everything up”
Learning to accept yourself the way you are and forgiving yourself when the anxiety wins doesnt mean youre a failure. These feels are not permanent, you grow stronger and wiser and you will learn how to control your twin bully during tough times.
We should be inspired by people that are kind, generous, brave, strong-even in difficult circumstances.

This really spoke to me. I feel like the girl on the swing. I'm terrified to jump, I'm terrified I'm going to get hurt. I've always been like this. For the longest time my fears have held me back, that I don't know what it feels like to let go. To truly move on, to fly. I don't know what it feels like to not be constantly afraid, though my fears are now coming forth as anxiety. New name, same feelings. It terrifies me to get better, that sounds silly, but it's how it feels. I'm afraid to truly be happy, as I'm always waiting for the other shoe to drop. I feel like all of this self doubt, fear, anger, pain, self hatred, memories, all of it, has me weighted down. I'm stuck, I can neither fall nor fly. It gets to the point where you become numb. Just some thoughts inspired by this image. Thank you for reading.

Following my cool travel post is the reality travel post. Travel is a big trigger for my bipolar. The idea of leaving Cape Town has had me emotional all week, which resulted in anger outbursts, lashing out, crying, psychotic symptoms, panic attacks and just generally being a hot mess. Even though I take copious of anxiety meds before and while traveling it doesn’t change the fact that it’s an awful and difficult part of mental illness. To all those fighting any mental health issues, you are brave, and we are in this together, stronger. Much love 💗. #raiseawareness #bipolar #trigger #mentalillness #mentalhealth #realitycheck

Day 608 for #30forstrongminds, in support of those dealing with mental health issues (e.g., #anxiety, #depression, #bipolar, etc.). This one hits close to home for me, as some of the people in my life deal with varying challenges to get through their day. Helping to raise #awareness is one way to show that I'm looking out for you. #letscheckonafriend

Take time to let those people in your life who deal with any mental illness know that they are loved and appreciated. It could make all the difference in their day, and help give them the courage to work through their challenges. If you, or a loved one, may need help, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline number is 800-273-8255.

If you are seeing this post, know that you are a awesome and amazing person. And yes, you matter to me.

In order to do anything in this life, to move forward, to live, we have to have a deep level of acceptance. We have to explore ourselves, even our darkest places, our weirdest thoughts, admit to ourselves that we have them, and accept them for what they are, simply thoughts. We have little control over what thoughts, urges and emotions enter into our mind, and we cannot stop them happening. Suppressing them only drags us down into murky water deeper and deeper until we cannot see. In order to live, to be ourselves, we need a deep level of acceptance, that this is how things are. Acceptance isn't the same as approval, it doesn't mean what happened is ok, but it means you simply accept current circumstances, and you can't go forward without accepting how things are. .

Life can be tough and occasionally it can knock you right down to rock bottom. But that doesn't mean you have to stay there.
.
You have to gather all of your inner strength, courage and wisdom and take control of your destiny. Yes, you've fallen but now is your time to rise back up. To prove the doubters wrong and to be the hero of your own story.
.
It's your life and only YOU can take control. Choose to come back an even better version of your former self ✨💖💫

MAJOR MAJOR MAJOR TW
I want and probably will relapse. I am so done. I weighed myself this morning and I again gained 0,5kg in 1 day. I am so so fucking done. I want to lose weight so badly and already skipped breakfast and don't plan on lunching. Maybe I will let dinner be my only food in the day. But I just can't handle this weight. This body. This mind. I want to lose weight. I want to self harm. I want to starve. I want to disappear. I want to die.
I am sorry you guys. I just can't anymore. I just... I can't...

Still feeling pretty under the weather and have been told that I need to take tomorrow off day program after having today off and resting. On top of feeling really crappy, I’ve got awful anxiety and feeling like I’ve ballooned and am already weight restored. Probably doesn’t help that I’ll be getting weighed tomorrow. On the plus side, I have unicorn confetti on my bed and have had some lovely company today as they are now doing group supervision for our meals

Reflecting back on the sad, tragic death of Kate Spade (fashion designer) and Anthony Bourdain (renowned chef) you stop and ask yourself, Why? What could have been so bad to cause oneself to take their own life. Those left behind can only speculate as to the reason but no one really knows except the one who made this final decision to end it all.. .
Expounding on the last Truthfully Speaking Sunday post emphasizing the part about a SOUND MIND (For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind), we all must nurture and continue to fight for our own SOUND MIND. The enemy in the form of negativity, depression, fear, hate, drug / alcohol abuse want to claim and take over our mind and lead us down the path of destruction and eventually DEATH.
.
We have to remember this is a battle that must be continuously fought and we can’t give in and give up. You must make a decision and declare to yourself that you will not allow any type of outside force or influence to alter or do your thinking for you that takes you down the path of depression, destruction and ultimately death. Don’t be afraid to seek help if your not able to begin the process of getting back on the right track to health and wellness in the mind, body and spirit..💋
