We know this feeling: we're going about the day, keeping busy, and feeling pretty a-ok. However, later, when we lie down, rest our head on the pillow and close our eyes, BAM! We're suddenly hit by a wave of thoughts, feelings, and memories.
Image description: Illustration on a white background, featuring two line drawings of a stylised person. The left-hand side of the image is titled 'AWAKE', and shows the person standing upright. They seem to be hollow and are filled up to the chest with an orange liquid. This liquid is labelled 'feelings'. The person is saying 'I am ok!' The right-hand side of the image is titled 'ASLEEP', and shows the person lying down with their head on a pillow. Because they are now lying down, the orange liquid - labelled 'feelings' - has now tilted and entered the head of the person. They are now saying 'I am not ok'.

I know from personal experience just how difficult it is, especially since being positive doesn't automatically make everyday great. It won't make your problems disappear. However, it does make the bad days a little less bad and it makes the good days a little brighter.
I purchased this book by Ron Powers a while ago and still haven't summoned the courage to read it. I find autobiographical , psychiatric stories extremely triggering. They remind me of all of the terrible experiences I've had because of my mental illness. But books like these are important so I've made it by goal to read this by the end of March. Has anyone read this already? What's your favourite autobiography/memoir?
Also, I'm cheating on my teacup with cappuccino.
The positive effects exercise has been having on my mental health/illness is no joke. After having my depression and anxiety flare up worse than usual and not being able to make it to the gym these last few days, I finally made it today and what a difference it makes! The more I workout, the more my illness seems to fade away in the background and the more present I become. It’s never gone, but even just a moment of bliss makes it all worth it. ❤️❤️❤️ #EndTheStigma#bpd#mdd#ptsd#anxiety#nofilter
Someone asked me the other day that it would be nice to see how far I have come over the last couple of years since starting to share my journey publicly. I thought sharing my first ever youtube video would be a nice place to start! This is where it all began!

He touched my breasts and rubbed them each. Pondering at what to grab next, he took my shirt off and clenched his jaw.
