Mental business is weird business. A year ago, I wouldn't say anything and hide away/sleep/have a panic attack/have a panic attack in my sleep. But now, I'm like Hey world, today is a bad mental day, deal with it cuz I am. (Also, I'm a superstar cuz...how am I typing this rn?! Autopilot for the WIN.) Stuff like today happens for me on the semi-regular.
If you'd like to know more about dissociative disorders, check out Google. It's this thing where you type in questions and get answers.
There's also a book called Stranger in the Mirror. (No, you can't borrow mine when I'm done, because I use it all the time and write private notes in it that are for me.)
Even though I'm spaced-out right now, I think I'll go write about how to be supportive to people with special mental stuff. Focusing on the asking of questions, which mainly stem from the well meaning desire to help, is not helpful. Not even a little bit. Not even at all.

The reality of #dissociativedisorders is tragic. Make sure you're informed on the differences and how to tell them apart. #stayinformed #mentalhealthawareness

The purpose of human beings: Free will and infinite capacity. So says Mr. Will. Reading so I don't have to think about what's actually happening right now. Reading to dissociate to cope with the pain (if we do it just right, James reads to all of us and it's this glorious form of headspacey mediation). - Billy

Excuse how battered my lithium card is.... So I always carry my lithium alert card with me in my purse. This is so if I end up in mental health crisis and am picked up or sectioned by emergency services etc they know that I have a mental illness. The lithium card does not actually state my condition but does give a fair implication that I have some kind of mental health problem.
When I am in crisis I get ill very quickly and often don't know my own name, let alone be in a state to be telling people my medical history etc, so I find this alert card really useful.
Anyway, today I received my DID emergency information card from PODS. This is a handy little alert card to keep with you to alert others when in a crisis that you have DID and ways in which to help you. They came as a pack of 10 and I only really need a couple so I'm willing to send a few out to anyone who feels they would benefit from one. I'll send it FREE (I have spare stamps atm), so DM me your address if you're interested 😊 (UK only)

A few years ago, I would have never thought that I would be a #mentalhealthblogger or even a #mentalhealthsupporter because I honestly had no idea how real these issues were until they affected me. I hate to admit that and I hate that I ever felt that these issues were not affecting others. I was a clueless person and have learned so much about #mentalhealth and think it is SO IMPORTANT to make it a priority in your life. It is not okay to not feel mentally unhealthy and there ARE ways to help. Ask questions, ask for advice, read information, TALK, seek help, and most importantly DONT IGNORE how you feel.

Today's #lifegoals ~ ultimately life is all about being able to improvise. To live in the moment. #hearts #monday

Happy Monday! First topic the blog is up- #dissociativedisorders ▶️▶️▶️I am so excited (and nervous!) to share my personal experiences with the world but I feel such a calling to do so. I have already had such an amazing response, from friends, family, strangers, and others with mental illnesses! Let's #endthestigma y'all.

Next week I will be talking about #dissociativedisorder & #depersonalization. One thing that not many people know about me is that I have suffered with disassociation for about 1 year now. It is one of the hardest things I have ever dealt with and its extremely frustrating because most people are not even aware of it's existence.I want to change that + shine a light on this! Stay tuned!

😅 makes sense for someone with Dissociative Identity Disorder. I have 6 personalities, but it's not that simple. Maybe you can fall in love with one of them, but not all the 6 will fall in love with you, and my feelings for you will change all the time, my behaviour will change. And because no one can handle that there is no you 😂
