This drawing always makes me giggle. One the pills look like kittens, and two the thought of store bought brain chemicals. Just remember psych meds are not bad. They help our brain to function the way that it is supposed to. Psych meds are some of the best things to happen to me. Yay for store bought brain chemicals!! #storeboughtneurotransmitters #storeboughtneurotransmittersarefine #kittens #storeboughtbrainchemicals #bipolar #bipolardisorder #bipolardepression #bipolar1 #bipolar1disorder #bipolardisorder1 #bipolardisorderawareness #bipolardisordertype1 #medicine #mentalhealthmedication #psychmeds #medicationawareness #medicationtime #medicationmanagement #medicationshaming #stoptheshame #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalillnessawareness #endthestigma #stopmedshaming

We've doubled in size over the last 2 weeks, so it's time for another introduction!

I'm Kate, and surprisingly, it's not short for anything. Although the occasional old person calls me Kathleen or Katherine.

I'm not going to correct them 😂

If you're here, hanging out, this is what it's all about: ⇝ a place to learn how to find success (and figure out what success means to you), even with all the SHIT piled on your shoulders ⇝ a place to come when you're not sure what the frig your doing and just putting one foot in front of the other ⇝ a place to come when you're not sure if you can even get one foot in front of the other
and also, ⇝ THE place to come for the most amazing hair
You might as well feel good while you're working on killing it.

This little community came from a place of feeling so lost that I didn't think I could get through it.

I was ⇝ living my life to please other people
⇝ not coping properly with trauma and turned to self harm
⇝ eventually hospitalized for my depression ⇝ so fucking LOST (did I mention that?) Double tap if your insides are screaming, "This is for me!" I'm so grateful that you're hear.

Went hiking yesterday. It was amazing and the weather was beautiful. Very sore today, though!

Petite photo de mauvaise qualité et temporaire pour vous annoncer que j'ai publié un nouvel article sur le blog. La clé du bonheur ? S'entourer de gens qui rayonnent ☀️🌸

Nice bubble bath, I think bath time is the most relaxing and most important part of my day. The only time I feel relaxed and at peace with myself and everything around me is when I’m in water. The sound of flowing water clears my mind and the change in the temperature of the water as it fills the tub around me calms my moods... am I weird? I think so 😂🤭 #water#calm#bath#relax#cold#warm#hot#change#borderlinepersonalitydisorder#bpd#mentalillness#mentalawareness#disabilities#me#strange#unique#chilled#calming#loveit

Wow love being bipolar super manic and have had mmmm about three hours of sleep in three days.... still cute tho so I guess that’s a plus #transgirl #michigan #mexican #bipolar #mood #transisbeautiful #transwoman #transwomenofcolor #transpride #mtf #mentalillness #loveyourself

Random existential rant... I know I look super rough but I’m cool with that #blackgirlmagic snapchat #bodypositive #plussize #weightlossjourney #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalillness #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #30yearsold #truth

They’re everywhere...following me...watching me...whispering...there’s nowhere I can get away from them. They’re watching you too...you’ll never be free of them...they’ll dog you to the grave. Don’t say you’ve seen them, or they’ll lock you up for mad. —————————————————-
So, who went to #church today? #Jesus #Angels #Devil #Demons #Blessed #Atheist #Atheism #MentalIllness

Happy days
Sad days
Crazy,”I don’t care days!”
Feeling up
Feeling down
Wanting to leave or stick around
Doubtful today
Determined tomorrow
Mind on track
Head misguided
Time going fast
Life feels slow
When will my mind ever tell me where I need to go?

Good morning! I’m feeling bun bun this morning.
#selfietherapy time! Still loving my hair. And love the filter that I picked to go with my feelings. I really need to pick up that red shampoo since my color is fading slightly and I want to keep it in yo face red! I think my stylist @ns3hawaii_courtney did an awesome job with my color.
What do you think? Do you think I should keep the color or try something new?

The ADVERSE CHILDHOOD EXPERIENCES (ACE) or Childhood Trauma can change the way the brain functions and damage the immune system causing many mental health disorders and diseases in adulthood. Diabetes, hypertension , autoimmune diseases and even cancer can be traced back to Childhood trauma. bipolar disorder, depression schizophrenia etc. Even skin disorders such as eczema, psoriasis acne and rashes are linked to chronic stress. #selfcaresunday #selfcare #reading #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #anxiety #depression#bipolar #BPD #stress #suicide #empathy #compassion #emotionalintelligence #therapy #mindfulness #suicideprevention #healthylifestyle #health

Panoramic selfies. I am feeling as pictured; slowly fading. Alles gaat voor de wind, maar ik lijk mijzelf geen geluk te gunnen. Ik ben mijn grootste vijand. Ik trek me weer terug en laat de wereld aan mij voorbij gaan. Het is frustrerend, boos makend, om jezelf altijd te willen saboteren. Weg met het stigma, weg met de schaamte. Ik ben eerlijk en open en kwetsbaar, maar niet alleen.. jij die dit leest, je bent geliefd, sterk en ik geloof in je. #selfie #panoramic #me #i #mentalhealth #mentalillness #compulsive #sabotage #honesty #tired #dutch #issues #youareloved #surviveandthrive #wegmetstigma #wegmetschaamte #komtallemaalgoed

The thing about social media is that you can construct your online presence in a way that is not accurate to your real life. For example, this photo of me was taken on the 8th of July in Tenerife where I was on an amazing holiday with my friends. But you didn’t need to know the details. I could have pretended that was my current situation. In actuality, I have a swollen chin and bruises on the inside on my lip from a drunken injury which has now prompted me to temporarily quit alcohol. I’m struggling with my weight and the way I look. My anxiety is through the roof and I’m on the verge of relapsing back into my prescription drug addiction. Never take anything for face value.

#goodday #fam Sending everyone #love ! I really can’t deal with #life atm so this will be a short post. You’re welcome. 😝
Another night of #insomnia and the second I did go to sleep the PTSD night terrors started. I woke up SCREAMING today drenched in tears and sweat!! This needs to stop. It’s affecting my entire days. Needless to say I’m a mess of a human again today who can barely freaking function. All this stress is affecting my #addisonsdisease as well. I’m trying my BEST to go into a full blown crisis by taking extra steroids, drinking a lot of water..I need to have some salt in me since I’ve lost a lot through sweat and tears. Oh great. Another sobbing attack is on its way. #happysunday #addisonsdisease #pmdd #ptsd #add #tbi #ocd #anxiety #depression #fibromyalgia #arthritis #hypothyroidism #hypoglycemic #neuropathy #raynaudsphenomenon #chronicpain #mmj #spoonie #mentalhealth #mentalillness #warrior #moreissuesthanvogue #noshame #onelove
