The last couple days have been relatively good. Not too much to talk about as far as skills I've just been trying to stay in the moment as much as possible. Sometimes less is more..Trying to let thoughts be thoughts and nothing more than just that. This afternoon is all about taking it easy. I spent a few hours at the pool, even folded my laundry there, took a nap, and ate a healthy lunch. So I'd say so far it's a #winningwednesday ☀️👌 #isthatevenathing

Teachers in my life are so fucking strange. I don't know what to say about them, but why was his fucking hand on my leg? Why was his hand on my whole body? Why is this so fucking strange? What's wrong with me and my life? I like him, but this day was strange. I think i don't like him anymore. - #recover #recovery #recoveryquotes #recoverymode #recoveryfood #recoveryjourney #recoverytime #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #recovering #selfharmrecovery #depressionrecovery #againstselfharm #againstdepression

“I look at my scars and see. . . a girl who was trying to cope with something horrible that she should never have had to live through at all. My scars show pain and suffering, but they also show my will to survive. They're part of my history that'll always be there.” - Cheryl Rainfield

Late night post😔 How y'all doing?you fine coz you can talk to me or somebody if you aren't. I've been a shitty selfish person.When I say selfish,people just assume it's about not sharing stuff.Like,oh my god,read the dictionary and learn that selfish is a lot of stuff.I was selfish about others' feelings.I thought I was doing my best to be nice to them...I thought they would like me better Or something like that.All I thought about was how I would feel if I made the decisions or choices.I'd try working it out but being such a difficult person to deal with,diagnosed with a fucking mood disorder....Even I hate sitting with me.Its so hard to think about others when I'm in my own beneficial world.I wanted people to love me.More and more.And I got lost in the perseverance of seeking attention from the people I wanted to be friends with.I hated myself for that.if I hurt anyone in a way that can't be fixed,all I can ever do now is say sorry.You didn't deserve such a shitty person to be with you.But thank you.For not letting me win everytime. Thank you for letting me know...that I don't always have to believe that this is a "Dog eat Dog"world. Just thank you... #voiceofren #depressionquotes #fuckdepression #reachout #depression #anxiety #anxietyattack #selfesteem #mystory #mylife #sad #death #suicide #selfharm #selfharmrecovery #bodyshaming #mooddisorder #majordepressivedisorder #mixedanxietydepressivedisorder #mixedanxiety #trauma #lgbt #pansexual #deepthoughts #genderfluid #socialanxiety

I have Had the best day out with a friend I haven’t seen since March. We left it way too long!! We went to wagamamas for lunch and she’s just as impulsive as me and I decided we should get a piercings. So we did! She was easily persuaded lol. I just love spontaneous days out. We have been friends since school. She’s the only friend still keep in contact from school actually and she has always been a massive support to me. Picking me up at 3am in the morning to take me to the casino when I found out my boyfriend at the time was cheating on me. She’s just always been there. My diagnosis is nothing to her. She treats me the same as she always has. We love our random days out.. we are thinking london next time. Just need to get the courage to get back on a train but she would help me through it anyways. She is just an absolute star of a human being. I feel like I’m on such a high!!! Off to bounce on a trampoline for an hour I go!!! . . . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthquotes #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #recovery #bpd #invisibleillness #quetiapine #bpdawareness #bpdproblems #bpdrecovery #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonality #selfhate #itsoktonotbeok #anxiety #recovering #emotions #depression #mentalhealthmatters #abusesurviour #selfharm #youarestrongerthanyouthink #mentalhealthwarrior #selfharmrecovery #emotionalabuse #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #recoveryispossible

alive_and_stuck

This has been a reoccurring theme the past year. There have been times where I've felt alone and I start throwing myself a pity party. I think about all the nights with friends I've missed out on, all the parties I will miss out on, how birthdays, celebrations, & holidays are different - how nothing will ever be the same, and I spiral down this black hole. But I remind myself of how my best friend flew across the country to see me last year. I remind myself how I have friends, family, & a boyfriend who celebrate my milestones, who check in with me, who tell me I'm enough without the facade, people who encourage me to thrive. I remind myself that I'm not missing out on anything, I'm gaining the privilege of remembering my nights & enjoying my mornings. How can I feel anything but gratitude? #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #mooddisorder #majordepressivedisorder #depression #livingwithdepression #anxiety #bipolar #suicideawareness #selfharmrecovery #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #staygrounded #serenity #friendship #movingforward #newbeginnings #lgbtq #blessed #onedayatatime #positivity #priorities #gratitude

Here’s to developing coping skills!! Welcome to the #scarredsquad @coolkidofnobody✨ Here’s what they had to say: “I am 14 as of now,Last year wasn't easy,I got bullied everyday and I just didn't say nothing because I didn't feel like it would help so I just told on people.When I would tell on people I would get in trouble not the individuals that I told on.So I started self harming around October last year,That was the only way I felt valid enough,I had gotten sent off 2 times during last year.I self harmed during the summer due to personal issues,I am a week clean as of now.I was a month clean until my girlfriend cheated on me.I have constant panic/anxiety attacks as well,Since school started they have been worse!But everyday im finding ways to cope dont ever give up!”

Diary entry No. 550 I had a nice deep sleep, I seem to be having the most bizarre vivid dreams ATM I was hoping to have woken up feeling slightly different, but sadly this wasn’t the case. So I’ve decided to curl up with my daughter on the sofa. Yes I could tidy and do things around the house that need doing... but I have no drive. So snuggling on the sofa with a Disney sounds perfect. She chose to watch Inside Out, it’s like she knows... If you haven’t watched it I strongly suggest you do. Yes it’s a kids film but Wow it’s just incredible. It’s all about your emotions and feelings. I cried when I first saw it. It’s a film that promotes talking about your feelings and acknowledging them. It’s such a strong film and probably one of the best of its kind, and probably the most important film that they ever created. Give it a try, I guarantee you won’t be disappointed. You won’t get over just how clever it is.

I went to the gym for the first time in a month today. I stopped going because of (trigger warning) my recent self harm cuts and scars. I was scared of other people’s reactions. But today I spend 30 minutes on the bike and I’m so proud of myself. Nobody took any notice of my scars so I’m going to go tomorrow as well.

Moin. Ich bekomme jetzt seit Samstag Quetiapin, es wirkt sehr gut gegen die Stimmen und gegen das ewige verfolgt fühlen. Auch stabilisiert es meine meine Stimmung einiger Maßen und hilft mir gut beim einschlafen. Hört sich ja eigentlich ganz gut an, oder? Ja, bis auf die Tatsache, dass es bei mir wieder zu extremen Suizidgedanken und Sensibilität führt, weshalb ich mein zu Hause auch nicht mehr ohne meine Mama verlassen mag und erst recht nicht in die Schule gehen mag, dort sind einfach zu viele Menschen, zu viel Druck, zu viel Instabilität, zu viele Gefahren. Von daher gehts mir gerade nicht so super, ich habe Angst, dass ich etwas Dummes machen könnte... Auf dem zweiten Bild sehr ihr übrigens meine drei Farbratten.🐭 So, ich hoffe euch geht es gut und ihr hattet einen schönen Tag 💚 #recovery #selfharmrecovery #borderline #depression #svv #ritzen #farbratten #recoveryisworthit

“Sei un piccolo fiore per me” erano le parole che la mia testa continuava a ripetere nella seduta di oggi. Ve ne parlerò brevemente perché purtroppo a casa il mondo ha scelto di crollare senza pietà. L’ora e mezza che ho passato dallo psicologo è andata bene. Avremmo avuto più tempo volendo, ma mi rifiutavo quasi di emettere parole. Lui rimaneva ad aspettare, mi lasciava piangere. Per fortuna ho saputo che non ci sarà nessuna denuncia. Ha capito, senza bisogno di spiegazioni o parole, che ora mi farebbe troppo male. Gli ho letto il diario che ho iniziato a tenere in terapia. Ogni tanto vedevo che alcuni pezzi erano forti per lui. Mi ha lasciata finire. Poi ha cercato due volte di introdurre un argomento un po’ difficile, ma non sono riuscita ad affrontarlo. Sono arrivata poi a casa. Mia mamma mi ha aggredita come una iena. Ha detto che lui e la psichiatra mi tengono come una cavia, che vogliono solo sbarazzarsi di me e che mi riempiono di psicofarmaci che mi fanno male. Sta leggendo un libro che è a dir poco anti-scientifico, e lo prende in esempio come la bibbia “leggiti i numeri”. Nemmeno fosse chissà che esperto. E se cerco di portarle evidenze scientifiche, allora io divento una “che mica è laureata in materia”. Ma lei, lei “chiaramente” sì (ironia). E niente, non riesco a parlare di tutto ciò che mi ha detto e non so se lo farò. Per ora ho dovuto avvisare la psichiatra e lo psicologo che potrebbe chiamarli da un momento all’altro, furiosa. E poi, la bipolare sarei io. Dimenticavo, ha detto che mio padre è furente, che non ci vede più dalla rabbia. E questo purtroppo mi fa (forse ormai illogicamente) paura. #anorexiaitalia #anorexiarecovery #secretdiary #selfharmrecovery #suicideprevention #diary #diario #depression #depressione #diariosegreto #followforfollowback #fighter #fighting #life #bdp #bipolar #bipolar2 #borderline #mentalhealth #mentalillness #recover #recovery #ricovero #psicologia #psicologiaclinica #psicoterapia #psicologa #psicologo #ana #anoressianervosa

5 years ago today I decided to turn my personal IG account into a #mentalhealth account! (Minus the 12 months I got locked out of this account) I'm so totally happy that I did this! Having or being around one with a #mentalillness is NOTHING TO BE ASHAMED OF! No one is perfect (except me lol jks) we all must learn to love and respect one another! Life isn't easy but having love and support along the way is a super big help! I'm proud of the women I've grown into! I couldn't have done it without my beautiful loving and supportive family! #cousinlove I decided 5 years ago to speak out about my mentalhealth!!! And I've never regretted it! #itsokaynottobeokay #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthrecovery #suicideprevention #addictionawareness #selfharmrecovery #loveislove #pride #lgbtq #youthwork #peersupport #psychology #endpillshaming #endthestigma #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthfirstaid #disneyprincess #disneylovers #ovariancancerawareness #endometriosisawareness #endendo #chooselife #winelover #jamiefraser #scotlandlover #justgoingforarideonmyunicorn

creating boundaries vs. creating expectations _ Much of why my past relationships–both platonic and romantic–failed was because of my own lack of boundaries, allowing others to push my buttons and pushing theirs in return. The more of these failed relationships I’ve had, the more I’ve learned about how to be a friend and what I need from my friendships (though, admittedly, I still have a lot to learn) _ In recent past, though, a new beast has come to light: expectations. _ While creating and respecting boundaries has been essential for my healthy relationships, there are so many instances in which I have unknowingly created some expectation for the other person. _ Whether it be imagining them to be someone they aren’t or expecting them to like/respect something about me, these expectations have done nothing but create bitterness and resentment. _ I’m allowed to not get along with others. People are allowed to dislike me. I’m allowed to be me. Others allowed to be them. And neither of us get to decide what that means. _ The folks who don’t love you for who you are probably never will. Instead of expecting them to find your quirks endearing instead of annoying, instead of expecting them to make decisions you would and enjoy things you do, move on. There are plenty of fish in the sea; why not spend more time with those you truly connect with and let others choose their own path?

As a person who still kinda struggle with self harm, I know it’s hard to try fight the urges. Hurting yourself physically and even emotionally never the answer. If you feel like you want to hurt yourself or others please talk to your therapist, talk to a person you really trust or call the suicide hotline. I really hope these self-harm Alternatives help you all. Don’t forget to take your meds, drink some water, and stay alive. I love you all so so much.

Today was quite good. I had school from 8am to 4 pm so I am still on my way home and very tired. But I think a little bit of my motivation is back. But also my anxiety. I'm starting to make plans for everything again. I don't know if you can imagine what I mean. Example: today I was doing a plan for exactly what I will do in the pause between the 6th and 7th hour. We have 25 mins. I planned 15 for eating, the rest for doing my Latin homework. I couldn't finish the Latin homework because it was too much for 10 mins. So I got frustrated and angry at myself, telling myself that I am doing everything wrong. Luckily I got out of this self-monologue very fast. But still, making these plans is helping my anxiety cause it's giving me strict rules. But not being able to do them or breaking the rules is a very huge trigger for my anxiety and my anger. And both of them, especially anger are making me want to cut. At least, I learned enough about myself that I can find out what triggered me. This is really very helpful. According to me, this is necessary for my recovery. So... I'm in the bus now, only half an hour till I'm home... Finally... Byeee #selfharmrecovery #strongnotskinny #anarecovery #recovery #gettingbetter #healthy #anxiety

Diary entry No. 549 I made it through work. I cried once because I spoke to one of the girls about last night. She actually used to work with one of my friends so we get on quite well, but we rarely work together in the same room. No one really asked if I was OK even though it’s incredibly obvious when I’m not being myself. Sometimes it would be nice for someone to just notice... without me having to burst into tears or ask for a chat. I’m now going to curl up in bed and try and catch up on some of the sleep that I seem to of lost over the past few days.

I remember vividly when I took this picture. Right after my exam of behavioural science in summer, at the end of June. I was exhausted. Still one week of studying to go, but all my fifteen year old self could think of was that she had reached her goal weight. Little did I know I would end up at the ER a few weeks later. Dying. I wanted my life back. I didn't want to die, defeated by my eating disorder, brought into church in a coffin as my mother would tell my family how I lost my battle. I didn't want to let my life be consumed my numbers of calories, weight, and bmi's. I wanted to be free from the monster in my head, and scream and shout that I didn't care. I've spend the next two and a half year in a closed psychiatric hospital, fighting to get better. My body has been through hell, and still carries the battle scars and chronic illnesses my eating disorder gifted me. But I'm still here, and I am still alive. I keep fighting, and this time, not only for myself. Through sharing my story, I pray with all my heart I can inspire others to start recovering. To see one tiny little spark of hope in the endless darkness of mental illness. I hope I can prevent some of you, or maybe only one, to turn around. To not go as far as me. Seek help. Reach out. Talk. And if you don't have anyone to talk to, talk to me. I'm here to help. I'm here for you. I hope that one day, you can enjoy a piece of cake, to lick the dough of your fingers as your laughing and dancing in the kitchen, and that you never have to be tortured by your mind anymore. Recovery is worth it. I promise ❤️ #recovery #recoveryispossible #edrecovery #edwarrior #mentalhealth #mentalhealthrecovery #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #depression #selfharmrecovery #selfharm #sh #selfinjury #cutting #relapse #anxiety #socialanxiety #ocd #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #beforeandafter #transformationtuesday #anorexianervosa #ptsd  #mentalhealthmatters  #mentalhealthawareness #stronglikeafighterarmy #stronglikeafighter

E nulla, l’esame è andato. Il prof da vicino sembrava quasi simpatico. Mi ha sorriso un paio di volte, e la cosa mi ha messa a mio agio nello scrivere. Ho risposto a tutte e trenta le domande aperte in modo coinciso, e senza dover pensare troppo. Mi è sembrato andare bene. Credo che il risultato sarà positivo. Poi avremo l’orale mercoledì, ma non credo lo farò subito. Quello incide di più sulla votazione, e vorrei avere un voto alto. Solo perché mi piacerebbe avere questo prof come relatore della tesina, sapendo che questo sarà il mio campo. È arrivato anche il risultato di quello della scorsa settimana ed è andato bene! Unica pecca della giornata? Mia madre. Le avevo detto che mi sarei arrangiata negli spostamenti, ma ha insistito per portarmi a casa dalla stazione. Okay, ho accettato, ma mi sono raccomandata più volte di non cambiare idea all’ultimo, avendo lo psicologo prima delle tre ed avendo venti minuti buoni di macchina per arrivarci. Alle 9.53 lei se ne esce che ha il dentista. Io arriverò alle 12.05, non ho autobus o corriere per il mio paese, ma solo vicine, ma implicano comunque venti minuti di corsa più mezz’ora o più di camminata. Non so come fare, ma correrò.

A long term goal of mine is supporting girls through self-harm 👊💛 I’ve tried to grasp the reasons behind the self-harming of my teens & early 20s 🤔 I always come back to the anguish and claustrophobia of being inside my own skin; not because I didn’t like myself, more my inner distress at containment, being trapped inside a human form and feeling its physical limitations rather than the infinite possibilities & beauty it allowed me to experience. Sounds woo-woo but legit how I felt 🤯 It was extremely intense and back then I couldn’t handle it. See, my soul was calling out for connection. Partying was a temporarily effective bandaid but actually what saved me was discovering yoga and meditation 🧘‍♀️ Aged 22 I LAUGHED at yoga. By 24 I was going solo to yoga retreats and at 25 having never meditated before I sent myself to a silent meditation retreat. Amid the challenge and stillness I tuned in to a world and an energy that had long been waiting for me with wide open, loving arms, anticipating my return, regardless of how long I took to come 💛 My heart was exploded open; it was like seeing the world again in HD 😍 All I wish for people who feel the way I did is this experience. Where it clicks into place that we are all interconnected. As you breathe, the whole world breathes with you. 🌎 It is so profound yet so simple. It’s love. True love. Higher love. A love that is so deep and omnipresent that even in the shitty moments when you get lost in your own head for weeks, when you want to climb the walls in anger at the depth of night, it’s there, waiting for you to remember and welcome you back. Higher love doesn’t care how long you take to find it. She’s waiting patiently. And once you’ve found her she’ll keep your space open regardless of how many times you slip in and out. That’s what unconditional love is. Over the years all my scars from self-harming have faded, except one on my right thigh. It’s my favourite thing on my body because it reminds me of how much brighter the light is when you’ve sat in the dark. Be, be with yourself, and I hope one day you too will find fullness in the stillness. 💛✨💡

I haven't been drinking much lately, the last time was a few weeks ago I guess. I used to drink alcohol almost every day, especially at school. I just have the urge to drink the whole bottle right now, to be honest, I don't know if that's a large amount for others or not. I already drank that much within minutes and I miss the feeling.

Omg I'm 16 now! Ahhhhhhhhh! Okay breathe! So my birthday is this week and well let's say it's been scary. Realising I'm a year older and a year closer to becoming an adult. Realising another year of exams. Realising I'm nearly finished school. Realising I need to know what I want to be when I'm older and what I want to do after school. Realising in two years time I'll leave school and lose friends. Age should not scare us it's just a number like many things. The future is coming but you shouldn't worry about why you feel like you are the only one who doesn't know what they want to do when they leave school because now you should think of the present. If it's your birthday celebrate! If you have free time relax! And mainly socialize with your friends and family 💜 Have a great day 🌸 #mentalhealth #eatingdisorderrecovery #selfharmrecovery #recoverywarrior #mentalillness #recovery #depressionrecovery #selfworth #celebrate #16

This isn’t a submission post, but tonight my heart is heavy so please bear with me... 3 years ago, I met Sarah through Instagram. I was struggling with self harm at the time. She came to me at my rock bottom and, in every way possible, helped lift me back up. She was one of the most selfless people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. As time went on and recovery became easier for me, we drifted. What I didn’t know when I had met Sarah was that she was struggling with self harm too. She had hit her rock bottom, but she didn’t come back up. She lived there. From her dark place, she was able to help me out of mine. We lost Sarah just over 14 months ago. Her demons became too much and she took her own life. Just 2 weeks ago would’ve been her 21st birthday. To anyone struggling with self harm: please read her post (swipe left). To Sarah: I miss you, angel 💗 I’ll never be able to thank you enough for what you did for me. I promise to keep pushing forward, to keep advocating and to keep making you proud, always. Rest easy.

There seems to be an attitude among some instagram users that a trigger warning entitles them to post whatever they want without consideration of its impact. You are still responsible for the what you put out there on the internet. A trigger warning does not absolve you of responsibility if you post harmful content. Obviously content warnings are necessary at times but they are to allow constructive discourse around sensitive topics 🌱 . . . . #eatingdisorderrecovery #recoveringaussies #anorexia #anorexiarecovery #eatingdisorder #edwarrior #edfighter #eatittobeatit #depression #anxiety #selfharmrecovery #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #bpdrecovery #mentalillnessrecovery #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters

That’s what I’m doing today. I have therapy at 11 then I’m going to lakeside (big shopping centre) with a friend I haven’t seen since March. So I am looking for to the catch up with a friend part. But the walking around a big shopping centre part always gives me so much anxiety. I have to know my exits and I can’t be there too long but I’m going to fell the fear and do it anyways. . . . #mentalhealth #mentalhealthquotes #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #recovery #bpd #invisibleillness #quetiapine #bpdawareness #bpdproblems #bpdrecovery #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonality #selfhate #itsoktonotbeok #anxiety #recovering #emotions #depression #mentalhealthmatters #abusesurviour #selfharm #youarestrongerthanyouthink #mentalhealthwarrior #selfharmrecovery #emotionalabuse #mentalhealthblogger #mentalhealthblog #recoveryispossible

Nothing planner related: cramming in FIVE days of the #progressposse #peelandhealchallenge • ⚠Possible TW? No graphic details, but lotsa real talk⚠ • ♥Day 9: Positive Affirmation♥ The first photo is part of a prayer I use when meditating, I pray it for myself & then for others. I'm really not big on positive affirmations. Not that I think they are pointless, but I haaaaaate when someone throws a cheery cliche at me & tells me that if I keep saying it my every ailment will be cured😒 Life sucks sometimes & I like to be okay with feeling my feels instead of faking it. I don't approve of denying one's emotions, but I do approve of hoping for better💚 I think meditation is a great way to try to focus hope in the midst of struggle. • ♥Day 10: Gratitude♥ I am really grateful for the progress I've made in my mental health over the past few years. Everyday is still such a struggle but I've picked up so many awesome coping skills & I would be lost without the guidance of some amazing therapists. • ♥Day 11: Imperfection♥ I feel that everything about me is either broken or unacceptable to others, and I am still struggling to accept myself as is, and I miss the person I once was. (This ties into the next two...) • ♥Day 12: Memories & Milestones♥ Photo 2 is me about 7 years ago, during a dark time. (TW) At this point I was self harming more frequently than ever before & I 100% believed I was disgusting & unlovable. I will never forget that light bulb moment in therapy when I realized my lifetime of hurt was valid, and it was okay to be me & feel all my feels. This Nov. will mark 7 years of therapy. Also, I haven't self harmed in a long time, I'm pretty sure it's been well over a year, so that's a big milestone for me! • ♥Day 14: Hello stranger♥ Photo 3 is a stranger... me. During one of the happier, healthier times of my adult life. I miss her. She had more passion, though she still felt worthless. She was still pursuing adventure, and her wardrobe was badass. • Although I am better equipped to handle my mental illnesses now, the reality is that every day I struggle to go on. I do hope to one dayget back to a point of desiring to care for myself & pursue my passions.
