Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

You’re worth the effort & time that it takes to get well & live a full, happier life. It won’t always be easy, but it’s worth it. I was in the darkest place, not sure if I’d ever feel like I wanted to live again. And, now with guidance, treatment, medication, & therapy I feel like life is all brand new & I want to live it for as long as I can & as full as I can. I send love to everyone who is struggling right now. You’re stronger than you even realize.

I have discovered that meditating on Gods word and in His presence while I the TV fire place with instrumental music on gives me such peace which makes it easier to relax.

Stop looking for all your answers in the branches of a tree, you’re not a tree.

I have struggled with depression and anxiety for most of my life. It’s an ongoing battle. I’ve attended anxiety groups, depression and trauma groups. In doing so I reached a place in my life where I can function again. I still have anxiety but I have better tools to help me cope. My niece always struggled with depression as well and her words were distraction is the key. I found myself turning to art and poetry, mostly poetry it helps keep my mind of the depression and is healing. I believe distraction is the key to an healthier you. I still have a ways to go but I am truly thankful for the mental health supports I could avail off to get me where I am today. Just try it distract yourself it helps.

Sometimes we need to go very dark and far into our caves, only to find the beautiful treasure that is hiding inside. Let’s not lose hope that we’ll find our treasures and soon start our journey back to the bright light. We are all together in this process, just inside different caves. ❤️

Why is it that the most stress and anxiety comes from a job that don’t care about their employees? Isn’t a employer supposed to look after it’s employees and provide them with programs to cope with stress or better yet accommodate them if they can’t work certain hours.

We are all in the same storm. Not everyone is in the same boat . Some are on yachts while others have just one oar.

Battling Bipolar Disorder is difficult. It is especially difficult when you are limited to health care resources. Not being able to see a psychiatrist for months on end takes a tole. That is why loving myself is crucial. That is why taking care of myself is crucial. I have to – because at the end of the day no one else will.

I am thankful for God not giving up on me when life got rough.

Get through anything put your mind to it one day at a time
