Chilling with the dogs. Had a gut feeling not to bring Heidi out today. We ended up having a lions foundation, Dog Guides dog pounce Benjamin’s face. I am glad I didn’t bring her. I think they were trying to use us as a training tool, but the man with the leash appeared to be low to mid functioning autism, and didn’t know how to handle his dog. I am waiting for a call back from Lions. We like to help, but ask us. Don’t sneak up on us and put your strange dog in another dogs face. Not all dogs will allow a dog to jump on their face.
I’ll update what happens when I am called back.
Hi everyone! Apparently it is ADHD awareness month. Sooooo ya hiiiii I have ADHD, LOL. I found out about two ish years ago and boy oh boy did it make sense. Throughout high school, I remember it felt SO HARD for me to concentrate in class, on homework, getting ready, driving, etc. I would start one thing, but then be unable to finish it due to being distracted and feeling very overwhelmed. I felt conflicted and confused. All of my friends were able to sit down and focus on their hw, studying, etc but I never could. It made me feel like I was incapable, lazy and dumb. ADHD is a neurological brain disorder. Some people might be hyperactive, others might be hyper focused on something. For me ADHD affects me in many different ways: getting ready, studying, homework, driving, and having conversations with people. Today I feel way more confident in being able to handle it and it feels good. If you know anyone with ADHD, just try to be patient with them :) ADHD is NOT "an excuse" it is NOT "bad parenting" it is NOT "just a boy/girl being too hyper" it is NOT "fake". It is real and it does indeed, exist. For example: ME, a living proof :) thank you ladies and gents and please, feel free to ask me any questions. ADHD is part of who I am and I am fucking ownin' it. #mentalhealthawareness#adhdawarenessmonth#adhd#namastebitches
~This place makes me the kind of exhausted that has nothing to do with sleep and everything to do with the people around me.~ 🌈🤫🎧
Today Jayke has a free day off school with no one to look after him he had to come with me to school drop offs. He could of stayed in the car but I wanted to challenge him I gave him the reward of come into the school and you can play fortnite until lunch time. Agreed 👌🏻 As we walked in he combed his hair back repeatedly looking around at everyone and everything taking it all in I could sense his frustration within one minute of being within the school grounds. Casing the room he was exploding inside grabbing at his ears a few times and looking straight ahead into a daze. Acting younger then the small ones around him as Whispers of can we go can we go now now now.... about to cry and explode I New I had to get out of there. I quickly did Baypearls morning routine with her and vacated as quickly as we could. Wanting chicken wings and needing them now 🤷♀️ Getting to the car jayke wanted no noise. Radio off don’t chew mum, windows up, turn the aircon off it’s too loud 😳 as he put the pillow over his head he started laughing haha ha. This turned into a rhythm this was not a real laugh but more of a stim. Agitating myself to the point of flicking the radio back on.. Oh this is my favourite song he says as I turn it louder “justin Bieber no brainer”... instantly he points out what’s that clicking noise which I also hear louder then the song it’s self. Knowing the background music was annoying him he shouts TURN IT OFF.. back to the pillow over his head. Driving to two kfc drive throughs searching for one that opens at 9am 🤦🏼♀️ ocd kicks in.. Arriving to his pops he was happy to see him as they have a strong bond they understand each other. Talking about snakes and googling why they restrict 🤦🏼♀️🤷♀️ half hr was spent with communication and a whole lot of love.. From the usual socially awkward to stimming and frustrated behaviour to time spent smiling with pop makes my day worth while. It’s only a small window but it’s something it’s verbal it’s engaging with pop it’s what makes my heart smile. ❤️❤️
What does 10K followers mean to me?
I started down this journey on Instagram over a year ago. The first time I tried to do a “blogger post” it was uncomfortable, scary, and I was SO WORRIED what everyone would think.
My family doesn’t love that I have vocally discussed my problems on such a public platform (for good reason). The thoughts of judgement often came over me. What if people won’t think I’m capable because I’ve told them I struggled with ADHD, anxiety, and a number of health problems through the journey of becoming medication free?
What’s funny is this platform turned into a therapeutic soul changing place for me. It allowed me to connect with like minded individuals all over the world. I have been able to inspire MANY people to get off a medication that is so detrimental to your body. I have watched their unhappy reality make a complete 180.
I wanted to make sure everything I experienced didn’t go to waste. That if I could help even 1 person skip the lengthy process I went through, it would all be worth it. I don’t do all of the things to make my account the best and grow the fastest, but does that really matter?
What does 10K followers mean to me? The chance to help change lives; motivate those who don’t see their full potential; and educate those who might be missing something SMALL that can fix a world of problems. (AND THANK GOD I CAN FINALLY SWIPE UP 🤣)
From the bottom of my heart...thank you for your support and encouragement. Stay tuned for all that is coming! 😉
Bravery isn’t about not being afraid.
The bravest people are the ones who are absolutely afraid, but face their fears head on anyway.
This little girl is the bravest person I know.
She’s been so afraid of losing her teeth.
She’s had nightmares about it for years, spent many days worrying about when it will happen and where she’ll be or how it will happen...but when it finally came time to lose her first tooth, she was afraid and handled it gracefully anyway.
Proud doesn’t even begin to describe what I feel for this girl.
Hi friends, let me introduce myself and my situation again!
My name is Christy and I'm a general laborer. I went to school for a medical profession but didn't follow through with it because of my social related anxiety and phobias. This isn't about me being held back by mental illness. This is about me doing a profession that suits me.
Does my anxiety hold me back? No, it just means I'm meant to do different things from people without anxiety. It doesn't take any meaning away, it just changes it. I'm at a job I don't mind doing, a job that doesn't give me anxiety, a job with a good supervisor and coworkers. There's nothing to change here.
I'm experiencing anxiety, dissociation and fear lately. I fear confrontation and any type of negative social situation. I fear people turning on me and bad things happening in general. These make life hard, wanting to break down and cry is a hard thing to live with but I remember I'm doing what's best for me and it's nothing I need other people to understand. "Anxiety is at any job." "Get out of the house more." "You have to deal with people anywhere."
"Leave the past behind." My condition makes it hard to deal with these things. I like the job I'm at now thankfully. It's a job that's easy to leave the house for. Otherwise, leaving the house alone gets hard. I am happy for myself for working and also not living at my parents house anymore. I'm allowed to be proud of myself because like I said before, my condition makes leaving the house and working hard at times. I didn't work until I was 20 because the idea of a job before that was debilitating. I was afraid of people so much that I didn't look anyone in the eyes. I don't fear people in general as much as I fear confrontation with them these days
Some like to say I used mental illness as an excuse to be lazy. But I say it's not my job to be liked and understood by others. I just have to be liked and understood by myself and a few special people. I don't owe humanity any explanation of who I am and why I make what decisions I make
Now, I'm going to clear my mind for work. I have to remember how much I enjoy my coworkers and how easy it is. It's what's best for me.
Don’t worry if you don’t see changes right away. Your mental reality is shifting and soon your outer reality will match your internal state. Be patient with yourself. We're so stressed out these days, because we believe everything needs to happen right now. We forget that everything happens in perfect timing. We always want everything to happen instantly. If we don't see anything changing on the outside, we start to lose faith in the power to manifest our reality. We even might start doubting if it's even real or possible. You can't plant the seed and instantly pull it out to see if anything is growing. Your role now is to water the thoughts, habits, and beliefs you want to manifest externally. Soon you will see what you've planted come into fruition. We have to be more patient and more trusting as we are doing the inner work. You are making a lot of changes in your life and the energy of your mind, body, and soul is shifting to a higher frequency to align you to new experiences, new habits, new people, new energy, and a whole new mindset. Everything will suddenly change for you. It will all happen. However, your number one focus right now is to continue making the changes and don't give up on yourself. Keep watering your seed. Give yourself the space you need to reconnect with inner-self. Keep reminding yourself why you even wanted to change in the first place. Deep down within your soul you knew you deserved more out of life than what you used to settle for. Now that you're going to be more patient, you'll be allowing the work to be done through you and for you. Soon you will notice the results of your efforts. You will see how powerful you are. You will notice that you have the ability to fully transform your life. Give yourself credit right now. You're on a beautiful journey.” ✏️ #Repost from @vybesource #affirmations#nomorestress#stressless#anxietyrelief#anxietymemes#dontrush#adhd#depreasion#stress#stressrelief#positivity#anxiety#anxietyhelp#mind#soul#mentalhealth
