Reaching out for help when it comes to mental illness is one of the hardest things to do.
I remember going to multiple doctors, seeing lots of different medical professionals in the mental health field and still being told "But you look okay, you've managed to do your hair and make up and get dressed, it can't be that bad"
I am still worthy of help if I turn up to my appointments with make up on
I am still worthy of help if I have good days
I am still worthy of help if my hair has been dyed and washed
I am still worthy of help if I'm managing my self care 💜
Mental illness doesn't have a look
What does mental illness look like?
It looks different every single day
Never tell anyone they don't look ill when they try and speak out about their mental health, how is one supposed to look when mentally ill?
We are allowed good days, we're allowed to post about those good days, we're allowed to cherish and hold on to those good days!
These photos are two days apart, sometimes this happens hours apart
I could be wearing make up and still feel how I do in the first photo but I could also be having a good day
You don't know what someone is battling so never assume!
We are all worthy of help no matter how we look! Aesthetics should never come into the equation when seeking help for mental health illness!

As part of self care and boundaries - I refuse to engage in other people's toxic issues.
I wish everyone well and hope everyone gets the help they need but I cannot have anymore toxicity and unhealthy issues or people in my life.

Day 36.
All pink for x-rays today in matching @_marieyat_ @peach_socks and a $4 Kmart cap to appease the OCD demons inside of me.
Getting over to the main hospital means walking down ~that~ street, the one I fear completely, and I have to 'mind over matter' every movement of my feet.
I wish I could run but my body won't allow it, my heart pounds like I'm running a marathon already, so loud I swear any passerby could hear it.
I wonder how long it will take to move through these spaces without fear, without the racing heart and deafening pulse of blood rushing in my ears.

Feel them in your body 😍

Day 35✔️ I am thankful today - thankful for this girl who believed in me long before I ever believed in myself. ❤️ “In all my close friendships, words are the bricks I use to build bridges. To know someone I need to hear her, and to feel known, I need to be heard by her. The process of knowing and loving another person happens for me through conversation. I reveal something to help my friend understand me, she responds in a way that assures me she values my revelation, and then she adds something to help me understand her. This back-and-forth is repeated again and again as we go deeper into each other's hearts, minds, pasts, and dreams. Eventually, a friendship is built - a solid, sheltering structure that exists in the space between us - a space outside of ourselves that we can climb deep into. There is her, there is me, and then there is our friendship - this bridge we've built together.” - Glennon Doyle Melton

We never deserved or needed to be abused.
We need to know this to heal.
No putting some positive spin on it to make it feel better.
We need to fully accept it should never have happened and we in no way deserved it.

I feel so d r a i n e d ➿ I'm barely sleeping because I'm having a hard time with flashbacks & nightmares. Repeating the mantra "Healing comes in waves, maybe today the wave hits the rocks, and that’s ok" 💛💛💛

Be still. When the air is thick with uncertainty, be still. When the heart is stumbling and struggling to find courage, be still. When you feel like it's all crumbling, be still.

Really great article on PTSD from abusive relationships! http://www.ptsdjournal.com/posts/you-can-get-ptsd-from-staying-in-an-emotionally-abusive-relationship/ #ptsd #cptsd #narcissisticabuse #narcissisticpersonalitydisorderawareness

lunchy was tofu and mushroom stir fry with large serving of green lentils. coconut oil in stir fries literally is insanely good.❤️ simple meals. simple days. I set aside the work that was overwhelming this morning. and just started drawing. I felt a little bit calmer. but yh a doggy place.

life needs to move on. and bloody exams and grades and blahblahblah does not dominate us. I knew how hard I worked. I knew what I went through. it is ok. just believe that it is.

Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe.

This is SO true. I absolutely hate when those who have never been through a (violent) trauma tell me to "get over it" or "get on with your life". Eff you! Would you say that to a Holocaust Survivor for example. TRAUMA! Especially repeated trauma you DO NOT GET OVER EVER! Yes, I am now happy, recovered, building a new life. I've accepted what happened. But, I have permanent injuries both physical and psychological that will NEVER go away and are a constant reminder. I must ALWAYS be in a safe calm environment. It is a day to day, moment to moment thing now. My health can change without notice. So PLEASE keep your often well-meaning more often JUDGMENTAL opinions to yourself. Thank you. @healingcomplextraumaptsd

#selfieproject2017 ... It's been a while since I posted an in depth update. So much has changed this year as a result of my breakdown and injury and I'm constantly floundering trying to find myself. My calf is still torn but I'm seeing a wonderful physio and the long term prognosis is wonderful. I'm sticking to the exercises and I can feel some improvements. The walking stick and moonboot were put aside. He said with time and patience I'll heal fully and be able to continue with plans to train for marathons etc. As for my mental health, it helps having people finally seeing the hell in in and doing everything they can to get me the resources that I need. In some ways I seem better than I did but that's because I'm recovering on my own terms. I avoid what I can't handle in terms of projects and interaction unless I have no choice. I'm patient with myself. I've stopped trying to be superwoman. But the thing is it's going to take a long time yet. I stopped comparing myself to others - if people think I'm milking this, or attention seeking that's on them, obviously they have no real idea of the nightmare I live. Every diagnosis I've had is flourishing at once ... And it's all I can do to still make it through in one piece. And frankly is people don't understand they can fuck off. It's that simple. I won't waste my energies being what people think I should be. Today I caught a small glimpse of the old me; writing, baking, creating ... But still there were flashbacks, and more but I persisted. I'll never be who I was and that's ok. Hopefully I'll be someone greater. #recovery #recoveryisnotpretty #healing #creativemojo #creativity #mentalhealthawareness #healthupdate #writersofinstagram #writing #baking #cptsd #blackdog #babysteps #onedayatatime #justbreathe #phoenixrising

When life makes it look like you have a double black eye 😒
I've been stuck in dissociation and I need a rest. I feel dead.

semi frozen pb yogurt mix is insane dipped with white rolls_(:з」∠)_ love it lots.❤️ the alevel results are out tomorrow and yh im stressing out. to keep up with school work whilst recovering from my eating disorder was realistically too much to cope with. it was inevitable that I slowly start to fall behind but I was really reluctant to accept it and seek out for extra help. It was probably the wrong decision to have taken the public exams back in may and june.

i struggled a lot with anxiety and panic attacks during the exam season. and sleeping patterns were truly nightmares. i wasnt able to concentrate at all with revision and I was chronically fatigue. it was hard to keep up with the onrolling exams week by week. one after the next. and really it was physically and mentally torturing at the same time coping with a mental illness.

in that sense. I really did not do well in those public exams. I struggled all throughout the year. and things just wasnt at its right place. but I still scare to hear the truth of the results tomorrow morning even though I am expecting a much lower outcome to my norm. it just makes me question a lot about my ability and make me feeling like a failure or haven't work hard enough as I was supposed to. year 12 was a hard year, and I just felt like wasting my time away.

I scare of judgements, scare of turning down teachers, peers and parents' hope and trust. scare of losing the scholarship I was once offered. I know I still got another year ahead, and things can be turn around. but still it is really hard to accept that this may had been the best it could be. this year was so hard, battling all these practically on my own. feeling hopeless and helpless. but I still feel so invalid to make mental health as an excuse of dropping grades. still is quite vulnerable to just follow the stigma people have. I don't know. feel very worthless and intense.
