Do you know that funny feeling when you are enjoying yourself, maybe reading a book or listening to happy music and suddenly your brain is like ok time to ruin the moment and your mood drops so fast you get like bloody whiplash and you start crying and hyperventilating and you don’t know what just happened so you just kind of go with it because at this point nothing your brain does can surprise you and eventually it stops and you are left feeling empty and exhausted and you start dissociating? Such a wild feeling lmao

My own therapist said this to me the other day. I was having some sort of worry and was expressing that I didn’t think I could handle the discomfort. She said, “Remember Nathalie, you’re not as fragile as you think you are”. In regards to anxiety, what we believe about ourselves really matters. Instead of saying “I can’t tolerate change”, try saying, “change is more challenging for me, but I can tolerate the discomfort it brings”. For me personally, my relationship with God is where I find my strength. I also understand that we are all different and have different beliefs, and that’s ok! The point is this: People who experience anxiety oftentimes believe that they are fragile and unable to handle the discomfort. We can actually handle discomfort and yucky feelings much more than we give ourselves credit for! 💪🏻 .

CW: discussion of suicidal thoughts 
Growing up, I used to worry about dying in a house fire. 
I thought about this last night as I stood on my 7th floor balcony and looked straight down to the parking lot pavement. What if I had to jump? I spit off the balcony and count the seconds before hearing the hard splat hit the ground. 
Would that be enough time to register that I was falling? Jumping? Would I die from that instead of fire? Would there be something inflatable below to catch me? What about my partner? What about my cat?

As a kid I practiced tying my bedsheets together and measured to see how long I would need them for crawling out the second story house window. I’d need to plan for my sister who I shared a room with, at 10 years old I was ready to save her first. 
Why fire? Then combined with an intense fear of heights/falling. I don’t have any negative experiences with fire. But I did watch a lot of Rescue 911, a show hosted by William Shatner that recreated 911 calls. My home town didn’t have 911 at the time, I’d have to remember more numbers. 
My anxiety around dying often came at night as I would imagine all the possibilities of how I might die, including getting trapped in the burning house. 
Recently, I’ve been reading about Complex PTSD and “passive” suicidal ideation. The thoughts that follow me to bed and creep up through my day that tell me I’d be better off just no longer existing. The thoughts that imagine illness or act of god or random injury taking my life. I never told anyone about them, never thought much of them other than blaming it on myself, “you’re brain is just fucked up, everyone thinks about dying, you don’t need help with this.” But I don’t think everyone, in a weird way, self soothes by thinking up ways they could die. This has been a nightly ritual for much of my life, probably from the emotional abandonment that happened growing up. No one is there to save me or care for me, so I have to get used to the fact that I’ll probably just die. Or, once I die, they’ll finally love me.

Thankfully, these thoughts of dying have minimized in recent months. But the road to recovery is long. There is more to come. ~C

Fast 1 Stunde über den Mittelaltermakt gelaufen, Stockbrot gegessen und es lief alles relativ gut. Ich konnte nicht genießen, aber es war in Ordnung. 
Ich sah Menschen, die ich nicht sehen wollte, ehemalige beste Freundinnen und Verwandschaft. 
Meine ehemalige allerbeste Freundin hat mich zwar gesehen, aber zum Glück ignoriert. Der Rest hat mich dank des Schummerlichtes nicht gesehen. Das ist das Gute an dem Besuch zum Abend hin, wenn es dunkel ist und man sich in der Masse verstecken kann. Aber wie gesagt, es war in Ordnung. 
Und dann kam der Typ, der mir von hinten ins Ohr gebellt hat um mich zu erschrecken. 
Da habe ich erstmal die Hand meines Verlobten zerquetscht und, nachdem er mich beiseite gezogen hatte, hab ich hektisch nach Neurexan oder nen Skill in meiner Handtasche gegraben. Ich hab meinen Massagering gefunden und dann sind wir so schnell wie möglich raus. Meine Nerven lagen wieder blank und das hat sich auch erst geändert, als ich wieder auf meinem Sofa liegen durfte

I've returned home from a hockey game and my mind is racing.

I've returned home from a hockey game and my mind is racing. "Is my depression affecting my performance?" I've played hockey since I was about 11; I set high expectations for myself, but only because I believed I could achieve them. I had success, but then my path hit obstacles. Sinking into my illness I acquired a new talent for negative thinking. I'm coping well with these thoughts outside of the hockey pitch. On the pitch, I'm stuck in my mind; We all make mistakes, we all miss chances and we all get frustrated at our faults. When does this become more than just a need for perfection and progress into symptoms of my depression? I can make a small error and end up spiralling into thoughts about failure and breakdown. Sitting on the sideline today I looked around and wondered how many other people are having these thoughts. How many players are holding back tears and wanting to walk away? I play hockey because I love the sport, I love the fast pace of the game, the challenges, expressing myself, being part of a team. Is this just another challenge I have to learn to overcome, I've managed to combat the thoughts so far, why is hockey so much more difficult? Has anyone else experienced these thoughts? Advice welcome! ⬇️ #thoughts #thinking #think #thoughtful #fieldhockey #sportspsychology #sportspsychologist #psychology #challenges #hockey #playinghockey #playingsports #depression #perfectionist #advice #faults #help #support #reachout #alwayslearning #englandhockey #hockeygame #mentalillness #depression #anxiety #mentalhealth

Sometimes you just have to get out one of just about every supply you own in your favorite color and get to creating. Mine as you can tell is teal/ blue. It’s a great challenge. Let your self be free to explore what can come of using a bunch of tones. You might be surprised. Making mixed media art is one of my favorite hobbies. It’s just such a fun time using the things around you. I made an art page using these a few weeks ago. Of course I recorded the process. And of course it will be up on my new YouTube channel at some point in the future. (((Link in my bio))) I have some serious editing to do on a bunch of awesome videos. Guess I better get busy 😏 what is your favorite color to create with??

Universal Messages from @officialpandaexpress 🙏🏼🖤 “The goal should be growth, not perfection” 
Which is funnily enough the VERY REASON I started posting my videos even when I felt it wasn’t “ready” to be seen. 
All the while forgetting the fact that the WHOLE reason I started posting these videos is to show no fear, imperfection, and growth. 
That’s why I do only one take for my video. If you look closely I’ve tripped, fallen, and accidentally hit myself a few times in my head with the leash. 😂🤣 But that’s reality ladies & gentlemen! 
Working out is imperfect and not always pretty. 
As a recovering perfectionist, I realize it’s better to see the beauty in the growth, rather than searching for perfection. 
It’s a hard lesson to learn, but I think I’m finally getting it. 
It’s all perspective, man. 🖤🤟🏼🤘🏼🙏🏼✌🏼💪🏼🖤

Self pressure is something I deal a lot with. Sudden bouts of self hate and destruction can come from moments where I don't feel like I am achieving enough in my life. That I am not doing enough or I am not good enough.

Today I had one of my first pole instructor assessments. Today I shat my pants ten times over because of a lack of self belief. I managed to convince myself that I would just fail, somehow not be able to complete basic pole moves and just like suck. At everything. Because I am a terrible person.  I should just not even try to achieve this dream because I'll fuck it up. 
But if I didn't try, how the fuck would I ever know? So I put on my big girl pole panties and got on with it. Got some tip top notch marks and passed with flying colours. I realised I may not believe in myself but there a few people in this world that do. If I do not try for myself, try for them. 
Finding a balance of pressure is helpful. Learning that you do not need to lay awake for countless hours stressing over the thing you need to do. Realising you will still be you even if you do fail. That you will still be loved and supported. Using self pressure in a healthy way to get things done but not to a point where you call yourself a hopeless tit constantly and mean it. 
No ones a hopeless cause. Not everything has to be perfect or the best. Life can't always be everything you planned it to be. Just learn to free yourself from crushing yourself. Be your own biggest cheerleader (crossed with a pole dancer)

"We need to shift the perspective. The solution is that we need to build a kinder and braver world. Get rid of those labels. These different factions; gay, straight, rich, poor, mentally ill, not mentally ill, gun owner, not gun owner. None of this can matter anymore. We are unified in our humanity." - @ladygaga .

“I’m thankful for my struggle because without it, I wouldn’t have stumbled across my strength.” - @alex_elle ✨
It has taken me a long time to be able to say that I’m thankful for my struggle. And there are still days when I reflect back on my past struggles and wonder why I had to go through so much pain. There are days when I feel overwhelmed by my depression and PTSD and wish that it would all just go away. There are days when I ask what I did to deserve it all.
✨
As much as it hurts, I have slowly but surely come to a place where I can offer gratitude to the struggle. I know and trust that my struggle is what has allowed me to learn, grow, and understand. I have found strength and resilience in the adversity, and I am cultivating my resilience everyday. And above all, my experience with mental illness and the injustice that I’ve faced has allowed me to become more vulnerable, compassionate, and empathetic towards others and myself.
✨

Second NOTE TO SELF of the day: LISTEN TO YOUR DAMN BODY.
I’ve been paranoid about the fact that I’ve had to take so many painkillers this week; overthinking it and worrying that it’s becoming a habit rather than a necessity and that’s the last thing I need. I watched a video the other night in which a doctor spoke about opioid induced hyperalgesia. Now, the doctor was talking about a man who was taking a high dose of morphine daily, and I’m taking a very small dose of codeine, so there’s quite a big difference in scenarios.. Nonetheless, I did what I do and proceeded to overthink and panic.
‘What if I’m making my pain worse?’
‘Am I becoming addicted?’
‘Is this all my fault?’
....You get the gist.
So I decided I’d not take any more for the whole weekend. Once I finished work yesterday, it didn’t matter if I was in pain. I could just tough it out until Monday when I needed to be a human again and if I really needed to take painkillers then, I could. Right? WRONG.
Big no-no. I never, ever take painkillers unless I absolutely need them. And when I do take them, I’m taking them for a very good reason. Today was proof of that.
My head was sore when I woke up, but I stuck to my guns and didn’t take anything. It wasn’t unbearable, I could deal. Fast forwards few hours and I know I’m in migraine territory, but I’ve waited too long. My triptan didn’t work. Fast forward another few and the pain just continues to intensify; my unilateral migraine pain has become bilateral, my head feels like it has an angry elephant inside it with hot pokers attached to its feet. Stomping around, stabbing me and pushing my head towards the floor with the ridiculous weight. My ice packs are doing nothing. I’m trying to push through, walk around the house, eat some food - nope. I’m on the bathroom floor getting sick. My head just keeps getting worse. I finished getting sick and thought maybe that was the worst of it over - when I was a child, I’d puke and the migraine would ease. This would be the same, surely? Wrong again.
It. Just. Kept. Getting. Worse.
I caved. I took my Solpadeine at 5.30. A second triptan at 6. And two and a half hours later I finally started to feel relief.

PANIC SURFING

Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something really bad is going to happen.  1 in 100 Australians have suffered from panic attacks in the last 12 months - it is a common problem.

PANIC SURFING Panic attacks are sudden periods of intense fear that may include palpitations, sweating, shaking, shortness of breath, numbness, or a feeling that something really bad is going to happen. 1 in 100 Australians have suffered from panic attacks in the last 12 months - it is a common problem. "Surfing" panic involves making a plan to manage the unpleasant cycle of catastrophic thoughts, flight/fight response and distressing physical feelings. Psychologists use cognitive behavioural therapy, relaxation techniques and exposure therapy to address this cycle.
