It's important to remember that not everyone's struggle is so obvious — and whether your struggle is visible or not, your experience is valid and you deserve support.

That is why @themightysite wanted to share @ellycatt's portrayal of what it looks and feels like to struggle with depression. She says:
•••
"I did this look to show that even though everything seems fine from the outside, there could still be something going on internally. Check in on your friends and family often. Let them know that you care about them. Even though they may seem like they aren't sad, deep down, they could be struggling. If you, yourself, are struggling mentally, please reach out to someone.”

Day 147 - A Marian Devotee preparing Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal for a procession

Sa gilid nang parke ay may isang debotong abalang inihahanda si Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal para sa isang prosisyon. Sa palaruan naman ay naruon ang mga batang masayang naglalaro sa slide, see saw, at swing. Present din ang mga Skater Boys, Volleybelles, at mga Basketbolista sa kani-kanilang court!

Nag ikot ikot ako. Dahan dahan ang aking pag lakad. Maingat ang aking pag galaw. I took my time. Hindi ako nag madali. Pinakinggan ko ang tawa nang mga bata. Pinagmasdan ko ang bawat kilos nang madla. Natuwa naman ako sa aking mga narinig at nakita. Kaya naman kahit na may kainitan pa ay pinilit kong manatili. Hindi naman kasi parati ang katulad na pagkakataon.

Sa kalagitnaan nang aking pagmamasid ay may bigla akong naramdaman. Hindi pangkaraniwan. Nagsimula na! Ito na ba ang hudyat? Ganito ba ang pakiramdam? Maaaring may mas matindi pa. Pero sige lang! Ang totoo ay hindi naman kasi ako natatakot. Handa naman ako miski anong oras. Sana lang talaga ay mabilis. Ayoko nang maka abala. Ayoko nang makaistorbo pa. Kung tapos ay tapos na.

Happy Sunday, everyone! Maybe a lost my voice a bit because I'm offline most of the time now so I feel a bit shy writting this post. It kind of weird though because I openned up about my BPD, I wrote about my personal experiences during this whole journey, share some moments of my training times... so yeah 🤗
▪
After dying my hair blonde for 12 years I became a brownie 👧
▪
I wanted to stop dying my hair  but it looked awful so during the week we talked with my hairdresser what could we do about this thing. In the end we used a brown which is a few shades darker than my original hair color. I use hard shampoo and it's summer so it will lighten. It is still weird though but finally I can skip one more "bad" habit.

I just want to cut. I'm done being clean. It's not worth it. Nobody knows. Nobody wants to know. Nobody cares about me. When i say I want to die at work people think I'm joking I'm not. I'm really not. Just want to be skinny. Just want to be pretty. Just want to feel wanted and be wanted by at least someone. I think I'm gonna self harm tonight. I can't do this. I wish i looked like everyone else but instead I'm an ugly rat.

I feel like a waste of space today everything is a chore and it's only lunch time. I don't know if anyone else feels the same way as me when i say i feel like I'm on a depression come down. Ive been up all night feeling lonely and 'black' now all the energy has drained from me the tears have all been cried and the feelings ran out. I just feel numb now like a walking zombie unable to do anything properly or with any purpose. I am literally just a waste of space in this world and getting in the way of everyone. 
Again I'm very sorry for those of you that come on here for help and positivity I'm having a bit of a low time at the minute and positivity is not very prevalent💜Stay safe and speak out

These are some of the delusions/beliefs I struggle (struggle isn't a strong enough word 🤔) with during psychosis. My psychosis used to be a symptom of my mania, many years back - if I reached mania, I would get psychotic. I would hallucinate (auditory & visual hallucinations) & have wild beliefs; I'd think I could fly, that I couldn't be killed, that the world was a painting I was living in. About 5 years back we mentioned to my social worker at the time that I was experiencing #psychosis outside of mania...this was a new thing for me, but as ever the SW didn't give a 🙄 They never do, & seeing as they're all you see in the MH services, it's fucking pointless 😅 But now my psychosis is pretty random, as its not just restricted to mania, but it's not constant either...it'll cripple me for a month or two, make my life unbearable...then I'll live in ignorance until the next time it hits. One of the many reasons we wanted a referral to a psychiatrist (that & the fact medical appts have made my bipolar unmanageable) but of course my GP refused this because I dropped out of CMHT a few years back, so she'd rather refer me to a psychologist who can't prescribe needs. I dropped out *because* I didn't get to see my damn psychiatrist but once a year, I'd been in the system 5+yrs, & the SWs were a sack of shit who never did anything, never listened, & couldn't adjust my meds. This meant I was left living with constant symptoms, awful side effects from meds that didn't help, & had fortnightly useless appts that stressed me tf out. Yay, #mentalhealth services, right? 🙄

COMMON BIPOLAR MYTHS IN NIGERIA || MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH

#1That bipolar disorder is just a mood swing thing. 
#2 That People who live with Bipolar disorder are incapable of having children and that if  they do, the children may have a physical disability.

#3 That a psychotic episode of bipolar is a consequence of one’s evil actions. 
Hummm… did I say 3??? Please permit me to add two more...
#4 That a person living with bipolar disorder may be too sensitive emotionally and so can’t make a good spouse.
#5 That bipolar disorder and the other forms of mental illness is synonymous with being mad, homeless and naked.
. 
People who live with Bipolar disorder can have a full life.

They can learn to manage their emotions, have healthy relationships, get married, have healthy children and live purposeful lives, if they are given a conductive environment to strive - love, support, professional care, medication…

A person who isn't mentally aware would describe a mentally ill person who is experiencing a psychosis as being ‘mad’. No my friend, it's not madness. It's psychosis, a loss of consciousness that leads to a distorted view of life. And it didn't happen because the person is being punished for offending the ‘gods’ neither is it a consequence of their sins. It can happen to anyone. Especially, a person who has a predisposition to be mentally ill or succumbs to a nervous breakdown because of intense pressure from a stressful situation.

let me set the scene. it’s 4 am and I’m wearing my finest leather jacket. so worn in that when I slide into it, it slips around me like a latex suit. the morn is young so much more of the day to seize. you sit pondering what your gonna do that day only to come to the realisation that u want to lie in bed all day and eat. the end ;)

Before May ends I want to share 13 things. Long post ahead....
1. May is #mentalhealthawarenessmonth 
2. #Mentalhealth is so important and should be taken seriously on both ends. Whether you struggle with an illness or not. 
3. If you don't understand please take a second and try to. Your world is a little different than someone who lives with #depression, #anxiety, #PTSD, #OCD, #anorexia, #bodydysmorphia, #Bipolardisorder, #ADHD, #ADD #schizophrenia, etc. These are only to name a few. 
4. You can be depressed and not have depression. You can be anxious or have a moment of anxiety without living with and dealing with anxiety in a day to day basis. 
Basically. You can have some symptoms without having the illness.
5. I have ADHD. And for the LONGEST time I went officially undiagnosed and I thought there was something wrong with me. Like I was defective. Why can't I do what I will to do? What others so easily seem to accomplish? There are so many different ways ADHD impacts my daily life. 
6. Having awareness of your "illness"disease"disorder" is the first most important part and the most freeing. You can finally have a better grasp of what you're dealing with and can decide what the next step to take it. 
7. You are not alone in this. Just because Billy, Joe or Bob don't understand what you're living with and don't care to know doesn't mean you're wrong, defective, or crazy. 
8. Some people have misinformation about mental health and mental illnesses and will wrongly judge or assume things about someone with that "illness" 
9. Take a moment to not get angry with them if they're being ignorant but simply to try and help them understand. 
10. Don't be afraid to get help. Don't be afraid to take medication. Don't be afraid of your illness.
11. You have the power and control. You can overcome whatever it is that's in front of you. You can be victorious. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. There is a weight that will be lifted off. 
12. You are still amazing and perfectly you. Your illness doesn't define you or control you. It can impact and effect you but it is only a part of you. Not you a part of it. 
13. Carpe diem 💛

I like that you can see a lot of Finley's #SharPei flab rolls here 😍😂 He was phenomenal yesterday; frequent alerts & responses all day, he rocked a busy walk & a toilet trip in the dark, & he was extremely cuddly! Today we're having a quieter day as yesterday left me in so much pain 😥 🌈 I meant to post this after seeing our friend - I've realised that since coming out as #trans, I'm 100x more confident around friends. This sounds weird, but in the past whenever I spent time with friends I used to be so scared of being alone with them...to the point that before they arrived I'd be asking Lyle to come up with a plan for if he needed the loo 😂 My #anxiety would amp up whenever I was alone with my friends, I wouldn't know what to say or how to behave. But in the last few months we've seen several friends, & now I feel no awkwardness...chatting totally at ease whilst Lyle cooks/walks one of the other dogs, comfortable in my own skin around them, & it made me happy to hear them correcting any accidental misgenderings/deadnames & respecting who I am 😊 I would never have imagined accepting myself would have improved other things like this, but yay 🙂

I can't sleep again, so here's throwback that popped up. Sometimes I miss this hair but bangs are annoying.

When you're struggling with mental or physical illness, it can be hard to believe you are enough. 
That is why we love this post from @ownitbabe. She says:
•••
"Do I love my life every single day? No.
Do I love my body every single day? No.
Do I feel like my career could be going better than it is? 
Yes. Every day.
Do I sometimes eat foods that don’t make me feel so good? 
All the time.
Do I sometimes feel like I accomplished nothing in the last 24 hours? 
OMG YES.
Do I still think I’m enough?
Of course.
I am enough and I don’t need to be perfect.
You are enough and you don’t need to be perfect.
You don’t have to always be productive.
You don’t have to eat healthy all the time.
You don’t have to be a perfect mom, wife, daughter, sister, friend, partner.
I know that regardless of what you have accomplished yesterday, today and always: You are enough."

Send someone a reminder this Saturday that they are enough, just as they are. ♥️

Im just gonna award myself the girlfriend of the year-award, as I came home from a 10-hour night shift and is currently doing the laundry instead of waking up my love as she needs her sleep. Good girlfriend me. 😬

No one knows the depth of that empty void in the middle of one's chest. No one knows how difficult it is to hold yourself and smile, when mind shuts down. No one knows how deeply and emotionally the person might have broken down, the crippling fear of facing a crowd is joke to many but a nightmare to others. #thoughts #thoughtsbecomethings #psychology #psychologymajor #psychologist #psychotherapy #depression #depressed #depressionquotes #depressionmemes #depressionsucks #depressionrecovery #depressionquotes #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolaroid_asylum #schizophrenia #schizoaffective#like4like #likeforlike #mood #moody #moodswings #photo #photography #photoshoot #photographer #photooftheday #😌

LEAVE if you’re no longer happy, one day you’ll find better! I learnt the hard way xxx ❤️💋
That actually happened.... (for anyone who doesn’t know, stir crazy means when being locked in somewhere starts having negative impacts on your health...which it was. So I was using it properly and in the right context etc during a 1:1 with my doctor about my mental health) •backup•

Exactly how I feel. I’m going on a hiatus from work, people and my phone for this week. I’m working on healing and getting through this depression. Relapse in bipolar disorder is heartbreaking because just when you think you’re better it hits you out of nowhere and you have to start all over again. #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolarsucks #relapse #healing #hiatus #findingmeagain #literallyagain #fuckmentalillness #fuckbipolar #mentallyexhausted #mentalhealthmatters #mentalillness #mentalillnessrecovery

▪️Когда скрываешься от масс-медиа, потому что они отрицательно влияют на твоё ментальное здоровье, ты даже не хочешь выходить в интернет.
⠀⠀
▪️Я не люблю давать интервью, а в блоге — это словно обычные посиделки.
⠀
▪️Порой перед камерами мне хочется закричать "Вы ослепляете меня, мне плохо", но им это только понравится. Мне и правда бывает плохо, иногда я просыпаюсь по утрам и понимаю, что не хочу вставать с постели,  и да, я улыбаюсь, обсуждая свое психическое здоровье, но эта улыбка ни о чем не говорит — я привыкла, что должна выглядеть довольной, даже таковой не являясь.
⠀
▪️Мои проблемы с тревогой и паникой были главной темой для обсуждения среди моделей и менеджеров агенства, и я на год удалила ИГ и разорвала контракт.
⠀⠀
▪️Я не особо распространяюсь о своих страхах в последнее время, но я поняла одну хорошую вещь - нужно заботиться о своём здоровье. Я делаю все только ради своего удовольствия и счастья, живу вдали от лишних камер и пытаюсь особо не обращать внимание на что-то плохое.
⠀
▪️Когда я заговорила о своих страхах, ко мне начали подходить разного рода знаменитости и признаваться, что чувствуют то же самое. Таких людей много. Я смотрю, что они делают, чтобы справиться с этой проблемой, собираю эту информацию и стараюсь понять, что сможет помочь мне.
⠀
▪️Я начала посещать психотерапию. И составила целый гид по тому, как сохранять своё ментальное здоровье в целостности. Думаю, я напишу о нем. Это серьёзный пост, не для любителей 🍑 и 🌰. Тут есть такие?

This little cutie was eating leaves today and tried to offer them to me. Lol

My squash is coming up in my garden and I'm delighted. I planted more and watered everything. I'm determined to be consistent and not lose everything like I have in the past. 
I have some cool 🍄 growing in my garden breaking down my wood chips. 
And beautiful roses. I love spring summer and all the beauty in my yard. It wasn't always this way though. Only three or four years ago my entire yard was 3 ft high thistles. The ENTIRE thing! It has come a long way. There is still a long way to go but I love it.

the post walk feels... Poor Jupiter has been sick lately so we haven't done much of anything, and no PA because he has the runs. He's been sick for a couple days now so he'll be going to the vet as soon as possible, which will be on Tuesday.
