When you feel depressed, do you try to help yourself out of it by thinking? And yet, has your mind ever given you really bad advice while you’re depressed? Often we retreat within our depression to be alone with our thoughts and β€œfigure things out”. We’ll push people away and stop doing what we love. This is the worst thing we can do for ourselves during depression. Why? Being depressed involves over thinking, listening to the same negative thoughts over and over. When we’re in a negative space, the last thing we need is to think more or make decisions about our future. We tend to believe we can solve our problems with by thinking and yet thinking is the root of most of our emotional problems. πŸ’›

A question to ask yourself while you’re depressed is: β€œWhat is the problem right NOW?”. You’ll find that 9/10 the problem isn’t occurring at this moment; the mind is either trying to solve a problem that hasn’t even happened yet or it’s being regretful about the past. By asking β€œwhat is the problem right NOW?”, you may come to realize there isn’t one. Sometimes the only problem is β€œI feel awful and I don’t know why”. Either way, don’t attempt to think your way into feeling better; get out of your mind and into your body by doing something physical. Just keep moving, do anything other than isolate yourself with your thoughts. πŸ’›

What are things you can do to feel better when you’re depressed? All the things depression tries to keep you from doing. Go outside, go for a walk, work out, do something creative, sing, dance, play, talk to someone, help someone out, cook something new, learn something new, do that thing you’ve been putting off, do anything that makes you present. I know this is difficult when you’re feeling low but you’ll get a different feeling moving within your body by focusing your attention on the present moment. Even if all you do is go through the motions, you’ll feel better than if you let depression stop you completely. πŸ’›

Continue to say YES to life. Go about your life as if everything is going to be okay because sooner rather than later, it will be.
Comment with πŸ’– if you read til the end

Sometimes life kicks you down in the dirt and doesn't let up. That's how I've honestly felt the past two months give or take. And pretty much in almost all areas of my life (even if they were fashioned in my own mind). A person can only take a beating for so long before they either snap, fight back, or give up. I was ready to give up. I think I hit an all time mental low for myself and was just done. But luckily I didn't completely clam up and had just enough fight left in me to determine to claw my way back up, and it helped that I had one friend speak something to me of her own story that landed on me, another friend who expressed concern and love, and a family member who simply said "I'm here." It's been a much better few days since that moment of my new-found determination although of course it takes time to rewire you're thinking so I fight daily to stand my ground and fight back. And for some reason I'm tearing up a little while writing this. I'm sure it's mixed emotions concerning it all. But just know you're not alone. You're not the only one who is living life full of anxiety, depression, and a lack of self-love. I'm just as much human (contrary to popular belief) as any of you who's read up to this point and struggle bus hard on the daily almost. I'm on the road to my own mental recovery though and hope that somehow this will empower at least one of you to continue fighting alongside with me. Don't give up. Never give in. We got this.

After receiving a flood of amazing feedback on one of my latest posts, expressing just how much people relate to hide their true feelings behind a smile πŸ™ŠπŸ’› I decided to make yet another one! I was so taken back by how common this coping mechanism is, as I thought of myself to be one of the only people who would rather pretend everything is ok, than admitting their true pain.
I was scrolling through some old pics, where I often take several of a similar image as I try and get the "perfect" shot for an Instagram post πŸ“·πŸ™ŒπŸ» I came across these two photos - one taken before I was ready and one after. You can see the massive contrast in my expression. On the left I look everything but impressed. I was on the psychiatric ward and did NOT want to be there, yet most people still didn't ever see this side of me πŸ™‚ This shot managed to capture one second in time where I let my guard down; where I let my true colours shine through ✨On the right I may as well have been a different person. I appear to be enjoying myself, which I think was the intent of my post, as I wanted to show off the craft activity I'd done with my endless free time πŸ“– "Recovery is great and you can do it too!" πŸ’ͺ🏻 Whereas the first picture honestly says "Life is shit and I hate every moment of this".
When I look at it now I can actually see through my posed and #fakesmile I look like an imposter of myself, the person I know Korey is when she truly is happy πŸ˜„ I fooled most people back then and even would now, if I hadn't had shown the first picture. I'm trying to learn that it's OK to not be OK, and that expressing negative emotion doesn't make me weak, rude, unlovable or a burden. This online community is a space I want to use to share the truths about mental health recovery, be that pretty or not! There's no point in sugar-coating the bullshit because in the end it doesn't get you the support you need. What will, is being open about how you are so your loved ones, friends and health professionals can understand and help you to the best of their abilities. Don't be afraid to be sad, depressed, irritated, angry or annoyed. We all feel bad sometimes, that's what makes us human πŸŒŽπŸ‘«β€οΈ

depression. even when everything goes as planned. β€’β€’β€’β€’

.
I haven't spent the last 4-5 years fighting anorexia, PTSD, anxiety & depression to be stuck where I am, or even worse, relapse. Where I am now is better than where I was, but still not great.
.
I've fought so damn hard to get where I am & right now I can feel it slipping between my fingers. Everything inside me is screaming 'relapse'!
.
But if I fought so hard to come back from the point of death then surely I can fight even harder to turn this around? I need to dig deep to find the strength & motivation.
.
I won't go into how bad things were at my lowest point. You can probably imagine & I've been there in previous posts. But my current position is that physically I'm well, weight restored & a healthy BMI. .
My mental health isn't so good though. The anorexia is trying to pull me backwards. I'm on medication for depression but still have very dark days. The anxiety is significant despite taking medication for that also.
.
My real issue is the PTSD. Despite years of therapy & EMDR I still have flashbacks, intrusive thoughts & nightmares. It's extremely difficult to live with.
.
My current potential relapse is being triggered by external factors around my employment situation. They caused the illnesses in the first place & didn't stop until I ended up on a psychiatric ward 3 years after it first started. In fact they didn't stop then but that's another story!
.
Nobody thought I would recover from anorexia. An ed ward can usually prevent you from dying but they can't make you recover. That has to be a personal choice. And you have to really, really want it.
.
I have fought, relapsed, plateaued, fought again, relapsed & eventually weight restored. Having been stable for nearly 2 years I absolutely refuse to go backwards. I don't even want to be where I am. I want to move forwards.
.
I want full recovery & freedom. I want to stop hating my body & accept it. I want to eat what I really want rather than what my ed let's me have. I want to throw away my scale. I want to escape the darkness inside me & feel true happiness again. I want to live, not survive.
.
And thats why I'm not quitting. It's tough at the moment but I'm tougher. This battle isn't over βœ¨πŸ’–πŸ’«

Today's bodycheck (2/2)

A lot of suffering is because of our #image #of ourselfs #ego can mean a lot of things, here it means #ideas that you think you are.Most will couse #suffering because you want to #defend them,or #compare them to others or the #world.# They are just #thoughts but they will couse #depression #anxiety and #fear .They make you need #antidepressants #tv and #entertainment to forget them.#artist #artjournal #drawing

Today's bodycheck (1/2)

I'm very excited. I think* I've finished designing the website! I've changed the name as I think the old one didn't really encapsulate what I'm trying to talk about. I'd love it so much if you would have a look. Everything can now be found at storyofthemind.com #linkinbio and @storyofthemind on Facebook and twitter. ❀️.
