Dear Parent With Depression,
Having depression doesn’t mean that you’re a bad parent. It’s an illness, not a character trait. It might affect how you interact with your kids to some extent, but so will loads of other things. Having depression doesn't mean that you’re a bad parent.
Your depression is not your fault. You didn’t choose to have depression. You don’t want it to be a part of your life. Your depression is not your fault.

I've always been an anxious person. By anxious i mean if my parents left the house and were longer than they said they'd be, I sat assuming they'd be dead somewhere and only when they walked back in could I finally breath properly again. By anxious I mean every time the phone rang I thought it was a relative ringing to tell us someone had died. By anxious I mean leaving the house became a game of everything around me is out to kill me, am I going to still be alive this time tomorrow? By anxious I mean what if I already did die? What if I'm a walking ghost, and that ambulance siren was for me? Is my dead body back there? I can still feel my touch, quick I need to talk to someone so I know they can hear me. By anxious I mean okay so I'm still alive but what if there's something wrong physically I'm just a ticking time bomb I mean we all are but I can't distract myself don't tell me to calm down don't tell me to stop worrying my mind is a messy dark room with no windows which is to say it's not always easy to find the light but I'm trying I've always been an anxious person but now i try my best to keep breathing when I'm walking to look at a thing and see just a thing and not an unravelling of all things which is to say maybe my mind will always be a messy dark room but i am building a window

p.s: this is me wearing my "cape". i guess my mental illness is sort of my superpower. it sucks. i hate it. but through it, I've gained strength and empathy and love for others I wouldn't have known. love you all.

We talk about dengue and swine flu, but for some reason we refuse to talk about Depression,
Why?!

Please do share it among your friends and help us spread the awareness.

"If there was something you could give people to brighten their day, would you? What if this something was absolutely free, and only required a tiny amount of effort on your part. Imagine giving someone the chance of an uplifting moment. You can - all you have to do is smile". Repost from @aboutmybrain 😍

It's impossible for me to imagine not having family supporting me when I was seriously mentally ill. I feel desperate for those who are living in the world of mental illness and have no one. It is often tragic. In the new episode of @mindsmatterpod my sister-in-law Jodi and I talk about my family and how their love and support played a major role my recovery. The podcast link is in the @mindsmatterpod Profile.

My colleagues and I wore green today to mark #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Remember: It's ALWAYS okay to seek help with your #MentalHealth! Together, we can #EndStigma against #MentalIllness. #mhm2017

Dialectical Behaviour Therapy was designed for people with borderline personality disorder, but it is beneficial for everyone. It's kind of like a mixture of mindfulness and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.
I took a DBT crash course back in March and it was great. I find myself forgetting to open this workbook though, but I know there are skills in there that I should practice.
Has anyone practiced DBT skills? Let me know how it went for you!

Sidenote: scars are itchy and that's reason enough to not self-harm. It was bothering me so much last night as I was trying to sleep. I read that they can be itchy for years because the healing process is so slow for scars. And my body sucks at healing so hello, itchy arm. 🙄

The doctor said I don't scar well, either, but that's okay. Recover at your own pace, friends. You've got this. ❤

Just finished this book and really liked it. It is about living with OCD and it tackles the subject with humor and understanding which a lot of books fail to do. A must read when you feel like you are all alone. #OCD #endstigma #mentalhealth #anxiety #imokay

Autorretrato de la última vez que tuve el cabello "largo y natural". Mis cambios constantes son una expresión mas de como ni me encuentro y a veces no le encuentro sentido a nada. Y transito con la esperanza de que lo externo me lleve de alguna manera a evolucionar también por dentro. Tengo una forma de ver algo complicada. De sentir demasiado intensa. De hacer muy pasiva. Y hoy solo puedo aceptarlo. Cuesta. Verse a uno mismo y no estar donde quisiera. Pero mientras siga en este proceso de ver y aceptar, algún cambio tiene que llegar. Sé que no será por inercia, que tengo que esforzarme. Reconozco que la cago y mucho. También sé que a veces hago lo que debo y no lo que quiero. Cuesta. Mantenerme a raya de mis "demonios". Extrañar lo que me hace daño. Y así es mi día a día, una mente revolucionada a una velocidad que no entiendo. Así es un día de lidiar con las tan estigmatizadas "enfermedades mentales". Tengo, entre muchas cosas mas que me conforman como humana, ansiedad y depresión. No se van a ninguna parte, pero tampoco harán que deje de intentar y buscar una manera de estar en paz. Y de quererme con todo lo negativo y positivo que soy.

I know people intend to help but end up making us feel more terrible about ourselves #mentalhealthawareness #fightdepression #endstigma

A few things I know to be true: I'm never "done" packing, I don't just wake up early on a whim, and I always want to wear winter clothes 🤷‍♀️🙃 oh well! I am going to stuff this bag tonight if it kills me!!!

We, as humans, should be ashamed that people with mental health issues feel oppressed and stigmatized. #EndStigma

I usually post some darker stuff to express all the negativity inside and just how hard it is to live with bipolar disorder. Right now though I am on the road to recovery. Part of that is acknowledging the darkness and the other part is realizing we deserve better.
