Sometimes there's not much to say. Because what there is to say is simple, like this: lean on your people.
.
You don't have to fight your battle alone.
.
You ARE the one who has to fight it; but you don't have to do it alone.
.
Sending love and toasted coconut cold brew because, well, spring. And yum. And stuff.

So I actually made this last night when I finally talked myself into going one level deeper on my Social Media Vulnerability Meter by posting truth about what I've been going through & why I've been MIA.
.
And then I couldn't post it. Because Instagram kept giving me errors. Like, over and over and over. About 619,648 of them.
.
Which naturally led to something I'm pretty sure I've known was coming even though I could've never anticipated how bad it'd be: a 45-minute anxiety attack. One that, for several different reasons, I thought might actually kill me.
.
No, not anxiety over the video.
Not over Instagram.
Not over anything that had to do with the moment in any way.
Just simply the build up from the last few weeks and ...well, exhaustion.
.
Like the way toddlers throw tantrums when they're tired, except my tantrum came with hyperventilation, choking on my own snot, the fetal position on the bathroom floor, realizing I didn't know if I could trust myself & therefore frantically trying to find someone from my Trusted List to answer their phone for help before I called 911 or a crisis line.
.
I was talked down, reminded that later I can cry but first I have to breathe, walked through said breathing exercises and self care & followed up with until I was safely in bed and falling asleep.
.
And now I've gone through today with the swollen eyes & headache that remind me that (even though I'm feeling fear of judgment with this one) I still need to post it.
In case someone else needs it.
In case someone else is tired.
In case someone else is fed up.
In case someone else is angry & frustrated & feeling like they're one Instagram error away from going batshit.
.
You're allowed. Counselor/therapist/social worker lady knows her shit. I promise.
.
@wildfirewritten, thank you from the bottomest bottom of my heart.

So far I've learned that a big part of recovery is prepping ahead of time for situations you KNOW might and/or will be disastrous to your recovery. Your wellbeing. Your sanity. Your life. You.
.
So I made a small plan for tomorrow. Let me rephrase, I was told to and helped with making a small plan for tomorrow- I wanna be clear about the fact that I would not have done it on my own. Which is exactly why we need our people.
.
And now I'm going to the theater. Because why not start tonight with something that makes me happy & fulfills me? Also because mommy bought tickets for all us girls. So we're off to get into trouble. Love & Shirley temples to you.
.
PS I'm wearing real clothes tonight. AND the makeup.
.
PPS I stole this tip from my doctor. Disclaimer. #agmentalhealthtips #mentalhealth #healthoverhollywood #depressionrecovery

I feel like by now you've probably figured out this isn't just an ed recovery page. Or depression recovery. Or anxiety recovery. Or Hollywood. Or Suicide prevention. Or co-dependency recovery.
.
It's more of like an entire fucking recovery rainbow of a whole slew of fun crap. This fun crap is often called co-morbidities; which means disorders & mental issues that tend to coexist with each other & become a vicious cycle of cause and effect.
.
Yes, they're real.
Yes, there's a name for it.
And no, if multiple mental health and behavioral issues/disorders is something you experience, you are NOT batshit crazy or broken or making it up.
.
And THAT is exactly why my page is such a rainbow of crap. Because this is the real world, and some 90-something percent (I can't remember the exact stat) of mental illnesses intercept with co-morbidities sooner or later.
.
Also: rainbows are beautiful.
.
Sending strength & a lil George Clooney film & Qdoba dinner to anyone struggling tonight (I mean not really but it isn't my fault they don't deliver, I'll talk to someone, promise). Xx #agmentalhealthtips #mystoryisntover

I made this at 9am and am posting it at 6pm. Cause coming out of a depressive episode is a process, dude, and one that lately I try to do slowly. It depends on how deep you fell- meaning lack of hygiene, screwed up sleeping & eating & work routines, the negative vortex of the depressed mind, self harming, etc- but in essence coming out of a depressive episode involves recovering from trauma to both body & mind. A doctor told me that years ago & I've never forgotten it.
.
I no longer try and rejoin life at warp speed, I take the time I need to slowly step back in strong. I do things at what others would call a snail's pace. But building back up gives me just a tiny bit more of the safety net that ensures I'm not setting myself back up for an immediate fall.
.
Which is a long ass explanation for why it took me 9hrs from talking to my camera to actually posting on Instagram. It is what it is. Be gentle with you. Xx
#agmentalhealthtips #keepfighting #depressionrecovery

The main point of my entire existence on Instagram is to showcase real crap.
.
At this point in my life if I were sharing anything less than real crap I'd see no reason for me to even exist here because it would all be a gigantic lie & I'm over that.
.
So in the spirit of real crap here I am, right in the middle of doctors and meds and meetings and therapy and journaling and a whole lot of progress, yet still having one of these nights.
.
Depression is not a broken bone you have set and it heals, or a torn ligament you have surgically re-attached. There is not a one time "fix."
.
Depression is a visitor, one that comes and goes as it pleases. The more you learn about it, the more ways you have in your bag of tricks to show it the door when you're finished with it.
.
What started out for me as a just place on the world wide webernets to showcase real crap has turned into a place on the world wide webernets to also share real tools and solutions in real time and if you're one of the people out there tonight sitting and visiting with your depression, you're not alone and you don't have to invite it to stay. For the love of God. Be safe. Because all visitors that come must eventually go.

Oops.
Live and learn and, well, stuff. #agmentalhealthtips #mentalhealth #recoveryispossible

Got news about 30min ago that triggered the shit out of me. This is now what's going down. And I'm completely, utterly, fully & extensively okay with it.
.
PS- I also added a journal & coloring book to my list of bed-bound items.
.
PPS- I don't know why my camera is all weird & blurry.
.
PPPS- self care comes in all forms.

I could make this caption about how I was feeling so super awesome about myself & my YouTube footage last night & then this morning I was "brought back down to earth." But instead I'm gonna say NO- I wasn't brought back down to earth. What happened this morning is simply this: my brain & its comfort zone, habits, neurological pathways, resurfaced after years & years of abusing myself. But I know this. I know there's a chemical, habitual side of my thinking & I also know it's not always to be trusted. And FYI- neither is yours. You beautiful being, you.

Mental health tip.
Yes, I know they're not consistent, but they're only posted when they come to me. And when I'm having an okay hair day.
And yes, this one's backed up by Haylie so obviously it's serious business.
.
Also serious business: YOUR HAPPINESS.

I know recovery's not linear.
I really do.
(I REALLY do @alexandria_witter ...promise). But knowing it doesn't make it any easier to deal with "backwards" steps.
.
But here's the deal: backwards steps become forward steps when we learn things from them. Things like, oh I don't know, when you don't get enough sleep life falls apart. Things like that. Things you can use your tools & knowledge about yourself & your recovery roadmap to better avoid next time.
.
And yes- in the end @hayliedenae is okay. We're in bed watching Frozen as I type this. So basically we're more than okay. We're f'ing fabulous. Because there's nothing like cuddles & Disney. #mystoryisntoveryet #agmentalhealthtips #depressionrecovery #eatingdisordersrecovery

I can now say that school has kicked my ass. In a completely unexpected way. An emotional one.
.
I've always envied people who can let go & move forward naturally & easily. Mainly cause I tend to lean more toward the approach of beating the shit out of myself until I've sufficiently confirmed that no, it won't in fact, earn me a re-do. And no, I can't change the past. No matter how hard on myself I am. There's no level of self-loathing that magically unlocks time travel once you reach it.
.
So forgiveness it is. Because eventually you realize life will beat the shit out of you at times ALL on its own, with no help from you. Might as well finally work on being on your own team, huh? #mentalhealthawareness #mystoryisntover #healthoverhollywood #goodnight #agmentalhealthtips

Apparently this is becoming, like, a thing I do. So I wanna say... please promise me you'll never take "mental health tips" from myself or anyone else as an ALTERNATIVE to crisis counseling or professional treatment - whichever is do-able for you financially.
Okay?
Okay.
But...in the meantime. Maybe my shit can actually help another human having a rough go of this life thing. Xx #agmentalhealthtips #mystoryisntover #keepfighting

I know, I know, I know. So many videos lately. 🙈 And SO much snot. But: so many lessons happening & I hope they help someone out there. Xx #mentalhealthawareness #fitnessjourney #depression #healthafterhollywood #agmentalhealthtips
