When I was in intensive therapy for illness/body trauma related PTSD, my therapist was a Vietnam vet Marine. He saved my life. We started each session with making a choice. He would say: “Where do you want to be today? In the swamp or the meadow?” I made a list of the things I needed to heal. The things that trapped me in the swamp. I had to face these things, I had to face myself, my shadow side. And I made a list of things that put me in the meadow. Love, gratitude, memories of happiness, future goals, songs, anything that brought those sweet vibes. It took practice, tears, forgiveness of myself and others, painful honesty to stand in my truth and realize the POWER OF EMOTIONAL CHOICE. The swamp never goes away and the meadow is not totality. They are both reality, balance, and empowerment. Emotional health is never complete, it is always a striving, an exercise, a practice, and a meditation. The complexity of existence is in my meadow. 🌈🦋 #sarayk #schizophreniadeconstructed #schizophrenia #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealhadvocacy #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessadvocacy #emotions #emotionalhealth #anxiety #coping #copingskills #emotionalsustainability #staystrong #stayhumble #staygrateful #complexptsd #ptsd #trauma #emotionalfingerprint #chronicillness #chronicillnesswarrior #sickchic #disability

I haven’t been up to taking pics of my smoothies but I’m still making them daily. To use these as meals, I usually use a plant based protein powder. As a snack or dessert, I just use the fruits and veggies with a liquid. Enjoy people 😘

i got to talk to a psychiatrist about one of the clients i work with the other day and one of the things he explained is that all of the insults, the extreme anxiety, the “catastrophic overreactions” as he labelled it is just her trying to survive. this girl who has a list of at least ten different diagnoses ranging from autism, to borderline personality disorder to obsessive compulsive disorder. this girl who has a million different routines that can cause an emotional breakdown if altered in the slightest. this girl who has three to one staffing 24/7, and cameras on her for every waking moment. this girl that hurls insults at us daily, and truly drives me to the very end of my patience, she is just trying to survive. 
aren’t we all? i believe this world would truly be a better place if instead of labelling people as “crazy” or “mean” we would understand that unless you are a psychopath, i truly don’t think anyone genuinely desires to hurt another person. if we took two seconds to understand what it must be like to not only be so anxious that a slight change in your environment could trigger you to the point of hurting yourself and/or others, but to have a learning disability that limits your ability to understand what is happening around you on top of that. 
i love my job because i get to see and know the beautiful personalities that lie beneath all of this, of people who have been drastically misunderstood and often mistreated as a result. 💖

Ok so don’t panic nothing is wrong, I am still participating in a instagram boot camp. Today’s challenge is to show our biggest fear. Mine is getting sick, or anyone in my circle. I HATE hospitals.  #illness #mentalillness #invisibleillness #chronicillness #mentalillnessawareness #breastimplantillness #chronicillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery #invisibleillnessrecovery #mentalillnessfeelslike

Today has already been super stressful. For those of you that don’t know one of the key signs of BPD is a pattern of unstable and intense interpersonal relationships characterized by alternating between extremes of idealization and devaluation. Unfortunately for me I just got out of a relationship like that. It’s really hard to get over something like that and I have to admit I’m not over it. It’s been difficult doing day to day things without being crippled by the weight of unresolved problems. It helps for me to write letters to the person, but then not send them. .

I posted this on FB a year ago. No one knew what it meant. It was a silent cry for help. I was talking about Kevin from This Is Us when he was hitting rock bottom.

Recently heard a friend of mine use this term. My new life motto, Pronoia, the opposite of Paranoia, is the belief that the universe is working with, not against, you. Life will constantly barrage you with lessons until you listen to your core. Mahatma Gandi once said, Your beliefs become your thoughts, Your thoughts become your words, Your words become your actions, Your actions become your habits, Your habits become your values, Your values become your destiny. No matter how hard it gets, I like to keep gratitude a constant in my mind. Grateful for the difficulties, the subtleties, and the overall ebbs and flows of lyfe. Is life working for you? Or against you? Shift your Beliefs and await the magic that follows suit 🌠
___
I am grateful for chocolate covered raisins. I am grateful for the simple, yet profound power of breathe. I am grateful to be able to play, to lesson the load of life with laughter

What are three things you are grateful for?

I am going to be super vulnerable but today is a big day for me.
Today this happened while filling out the new patient form at my doctor. This is the first time in my life this has ever happened and as I filled out this form I reflected on how far I’ve come. 
It seems like yesterday when the only answer seemed to be to leave this world. I thought it would be a better place for everyone and I would be free from the grips of mental illness. None of that is true! 
I’m so glad my attempts failed. I am so glad I am living today and I am so grateful for the hell I went through to get here. Even more I am eternally grateful for my parents and friends that loved me enough to make me get help. I am so blessed to have that support system because without them I would be dead today. 
I am on zero medication and I am just in awe because I never thought there would be a day when this would be my state of being.
If you or anyone you know is struggling PLEASE encourage them to get help. It does get better. There is a light at the end of the tunnel if proper treatment is taken. I am not promising all people with mental illness will be able to live without medication one day. But I am promising hope and healing if treatment is sought and followed. 💛

Often times, you can't physically see someone hurting and battling this fight they claim to be fighting. Because those wounds and wars are held within. Believe them when they tell you that it hurts; that although it's hard, they're trying.  Believe that they're trying.

There’s a new #TherapyThursday on my Insta story AND IGTV right now. I’m talking about the most annoying word on mental wellness history-MINDFULNESS-and how it’s actually a p. legit tool if your ass is just as paranoid and panicked as mine. GO WATCH AND TELL ME WHAT YA THINK BELOW. And tell ur friends. and ur mom. and that one person from high school who lives in rural Iowa with zero access to healthcare and a “support system” that calls them a “pussy” for calling a suicide hotline. DO YOUR PART. +++

I seem to be very up and down at the moment. Today I was actually feeling quite ‘normal’ and then BAM! anxiety punches me in the stomach-and freaks me out for absolutely no reason. At least feeling okay is starting to last longer. Hopefully I’ll get a full day of okay soon!

Our journey through life can feel like an uphill battle. Some of our journeys have been plagued with addiction; the beast that seeks to steal our joy, our loved ones and life as we know it. Look around...that family who seems to have it all together, that college student, that grandparent, that business executive, that homeless person, that parent struggling to make ends meet, that brother/sister/relative/friend/neighbor are all touched by addiction. No one is exempt. We may not battle with the beast ourselves, but we all know someone who does. So, what will we do about it? One of the greatest gifts we can give that person is unconditional love and support. This provides hope, and where there is life there is always hope. 
As we consider our loved ones this holiday season, consider how you can give the gift of hope and healing, because addiction affects us all. With each set of GoFit Dining cards YOU help provide hope and healing to those battling addiction. 
Will you help us give the gift of hope? Make an impact today.

Another day, another assortment of pills. 🙄 Disheartening words, that’s what I’ve gotten from my doctors over the last couple weeks. My counselor finally admitted that he doesn’t agree with my neuropsych testing... that he thinks I’m simply depressed. Welp buddy, you aren’t a psychiatrist. You didn’t administer the tests. I have the proof. I’m finding more and more that l I’m doing is trying to “prove” that I’m not doing well. Does anyone else understand what I’m talking about? Cause I feel pretty alone right now, and it’s not doing me any favors. 😞

My AM Seroquel (quetiopine) has been upped from 50mg to 75mg and it’s kicking my ass right now. It’s definitely going to take a while to get used to this. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillnessawareness #anxiety #anxietydisorder #avoidantpersonalitydisorder #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #ptsd #depression #dysthymia #mystoryisntover #youarenotalone #keepfighting #medication
Here are some statistics about men and mental health.  Remember mental illness doesn't care what gender you are. Also you are not weak and you are not less of a man if you suffer from mental illness.  You are strong for living with this and hopefully getting the help you need. Hopefully through education and kindness we can help end all the stigmas against mental health.

I love you Jessica. You are beautifully and wonderfully made. You have purpose and it is to simply breathe and flow with life.

Say this to yourself every day, but using your name. It helps as a reminder for you to know your worth. Becauae you have the breath of life and it doesn't come from anything external. It only comes from within.

The external is temporary but the internal is eternal. Its where mental health begins.

"Alle Menschen sind frei und gleich an Würde und Rechten geboren. [...] Artikel 1

Zwar ein älteres Bild, aber zur Zeit passend, finde ich... So viel schlimmes passiert mal wieder in der Welt, wo mir mein Anfall vor zwei Tagen echt lächerlich klein vorkommt, aber in dem Moment sich anfühlt, wie alle Katastrophen der Welt zusammen😔. Naja passiert ist nichts gravierendes, aber das brauch ich den meisten ja gar nicht zu erzählen, da es zu 90% meistens daran liegt, dass ich mit ganz alltäglichen Sachen ziemlich im Klinsch liege 😒. Aber nach einem Tag Erholung, gestern, war ich heute wieder sehr aktiv und konnte meinen kompletten Tagesplan erfüllen (ja ich plane meinen tag ähnlich wie in der klinik damals, nur halt nicht so streng, aber es hilft mir) 👍
Ich hoffe ihr hattet einen genauso schönen und erfolgreichen Tag wie ich 🙌💖 Ganz viel Licht und Liebe euch allen 💖

Normally I’d write a (hopefully) good comment for this type of quote, but I’m in a flare and my mind is basically mush. So unless you want a most likely off subject comment that would make no sense at all, then just have the quote itself 😂👌 ⁣

Invisible Illness ✨
•••
✖️ When you say you’re okay when your body feels like it’s on fire
✖️ When completing every day small tasks requires you to ‘push through’
✖️ When you have to say no to friends, family or work and the answer why is because your exhausted from pain
✖️ When you’re scared to book a holiday or commit to plans because you don’t know when you’ll get a flare
✖️ When the doctor doesn’t believe you or people make you feel small
✖️ When days off are literally spent in bed all day recovering from being out
•••
I know this all to well, and wearing the mask is sometimes more exhausting then the illness itself. I wear mine all the time, so this is just as much for me as it is for you.
•••
So today I invite you to remove your mask, to move from hiding to owning your limitations. To say no, or stay in bed all day, and actually feel good about it (no guilt). Be gentle with yourself, but remember you are special and unique, and so are your struggles. And no one benefits from keeping them hidden 💛

I am very aware of the energy that my history of trauma and journey of healing gives off. I know when someone shows up in my life drawn to my energy of unresolved issues, just like I know when someone shows up drawn to my strength. I don't fault either, but I do manage them accordingly. 
This is the reason self-work is so important. If you are not aware of what energy you are giving off, you are unaware of what energy they are attracted to, you won't know what category to put the relationship in and that's a slippery slope.

Healing is a grace not many belive they deserve.

A container for all the distressed thoughts. 💭💭😩💭
Decide to write my racing thoughts on a piece of paper and lock it up for the rest of my day. So I am given permission to not having those thoughts. They are stored in a safe place for me to review them later. 
It’s a safe day for me today. I am teaching all day and having my therapy session after work. So there is no chance for me to mess up. Maybe I just need a busy schedule. But then I will stress out because of my busy schedule... what a life!

My nickname was buttercup from the power puff girls. If y’all don’t know, she was the angry one and that’s how we attempted to survive our relationship. It was our way to separate me from my mental illness. I’m so glad I’m better now, but I was a ball of fury. Anger is a strong emotion but it is a secondary emotion. It’s important to understand the root of your anger to help with the manifestation of it.

Cannot express this enough. It's not about "trying harder" or that you're just "not taking care of yourself". It's inside and it's a part of the person, not some phase or dramatic response.

A journey spanning from November 30th, 2016 to the present 
_

12.26.16

David and I have moved on to plastering wall A.  A process that requires time and patience.

We are looking forward to learning together, making mistakes together, and growing together.
_

I’m truly grateful, honored, and blessed to have met David.  David has enriched my life with positivity, empathy, and enthusiasm; to name a few.

_

I have an enormous amount of respect for David.  His daily battle to stay hopeful and alive.  Since we met I have seen David grow on an individual basis.  In the most dire of circumstances and situations, he has stood tall.  Always cracking jokes and seeing the positive in things.

Medications!?! I've been a guinea pig for doctors test different antidepressants. They switched me from this to that. A few suicide attempts and years of therapy i still have issues of dramatic mood swings, extreme anger, extreme irritability and of course the huge lack of motivation. 
The psychiatrist is now trying me on a mood stabilizer in conjunction with the antidepressants, and antianxiety meds. Hopefully getting a positive result. Its my first time on these and I figure why not give them a try. I need a break from all this emotional ups and down I keep pushing myself into. With winter now upon us my seasonal depression is about to kick in. I need whatever will help. Oh, one of those lamps, gotta look into those. 
Things that will help me through this winter are:
My roommate/best friend will be here with her amazing and beautiful daughter❤. My own daughter will be visiting more.
I will enjoy the snow by playing with the dog in it.
I will make a point of taking more pictures to not become agoraphobic.

I could go on. The thing is, I working at getting better. I will continue to work.

Picture is from a hotel in northern Spain. I wanted it blurry and black and white to show the meds in my brain.😟

Its my first time on these and I figure why not give them a try. I need a break from all this emotional ups and down I keep pushing myself into. With winter now upon us my seasonal depression is about to kick in. I need whatever will help. Oh, one of those lamps, gotta look into those. Things that will help me through this winter are: My roommate/best friend will be here with her amazing and beautiful daughter❤. My own daughter will be visiting more. I will enjoy the snow by playing with the dog in it. I will make a point of taking more pictures to not become agoraphobic. I could go on. The thing is, I working at getting better. I will continue to work. Picture is from a hotel in northern Spain. I wanted it blurry and black and white to show the meds in my brain.😟 . . . #mentalhealth  #mentalhealthawareness  #mentalhealthmatters  #depression  #anxiety  #mentalillness  #mentalhealthrecovery  #mentalhealthwarrior  #mentalhealthadvocate  #recovery  #mentalhealthday  #bipolar  #mentalhealthawarness  #mentalhealthart  #mentalhealthblogger  #endthestigma  #selfcare  #selflove  #health  #mentalhealthmonday  #mentalhealthawarenessweek  #mentalhealthstigma  #mentalillnessawareness  #mentalwellness 
i know me telling you that I love you won't make you feel any better, because the insecurities, thoughts and feelings will still be there but sometimes we really need someone to tell what is going on in our minds or what are we going through and sometimes we prefer opening up to strangers instead of the people we actually know and there is a reason behind but anyways if you feel like you don't really have anyone to listen your problems, rants etc feel free to dm me also I will be more active on my spam account @spillingthegaramchai

The dangerous narrative that has unfortunately become the consistent explanation for mass shootings or other violent tragedies is that the perpetrator must be mentally ill.  Gun violence and mental health do NOT go hand in hand and this needs to be known and understood due to its implications for those that are mentally ill and not violent (vast majority)

As a daughter, wife, mother and especially as a physician, gun violence is an issue I as well as other physicians should weigh in on as it does affect our patients.  We not only have a right to speak up but we have the expertise to weigh in on the effects of gun violence from a healthcare perspective. We are completely in our lane by speaking up.

I have come a long way on this but there sometimes seem to be moments, that no matter how I try, I allow another to push my buttons. Maybe it's because they know what buttons to push. My strategy for this now is disengagement. I will no longer engage you if you do not play in the boundaries I have set. .

Morning snack.
I was craving one of this for some time but I couldnt just eat it. I just ate and I feel like I need more chocolate 😅.
Its freezing in my city, we have 5 or 6°C, which is very cold here where the normal weather is 22- 27°C.
I prefer cold, its a good excuse to cover *cuffcufmybodycuff* and to use cosy clothes

What a perfect day to remember the four agreements. Nuff said. I’m going to post the agreements in honor of disability, chronic illness, emotional, mental and physical.

I can do this! I’m so far from where I was prior to my surgeries earlier this year. I know it will take time—one step at a time! .
.
BUT I also get so frustrated! It’s so hard. I get depressed and don’t eat right and don’t move enough...then I get stiff and feel like I’m starting over every day! Ugh! .

BUT, I CAN DO THIS!!! One day at a time Sabrina, one day at a time!!
