You know what? You really hurt me. 
You destroyed the person I could have been. You turned me into this mess. You took away my power, my control, my everything. 
Because of you I struggle with life, I struggle to live the way I always dreamed I would. Because of you I am overwhelmed with anger, sadness, hatred, mistrust and pain. Because of you I am alone. 
The scariest thing about all this? You don't even know. You have no clue what you did to me. 
But I am telling you now. I wont let you win. I am taking back control. I am fighting.

It isn't my fault. It's yours. All yours.

When u look like a completely different person depending on which mirror/changing room you use so you don’t know which version of yourself is the “real you” and it’s fucking terrifying because maybe you’ve been living your entire life thinking u look a certain way when in reality you’re probably far uglier than you previously thought🙂🙂🙂🔪🔪🔪

"In two years there will be about 250,000 veterans of the Ukraine war, many of whom will have experienced combat firsthand in the trenches and razed villages of eastern Ukraine." -Nolan Peterson, February 2016.⠀ ⠀ It is now two years later, and Ukraine still has no system in place for supporting these veterans: but we can help. The program already exists in Canada, consider donating to our campaign to help bring Veteran Resilience Training to Ukraine (link in our description).⠀ 📷 @chrisnunnphoto⠀ #vrtukraine #veterans #ukraine #warinukraine #ukrainewar #ptsdawareness #ptsd

Currently working on a series inspired by the Zippos and helmet art of the soldiers who fought in Vietnam. A war that was so controversial, and both valiant and heart breaking. As a former military wife and daughter/granddaughter/sister, I have a heart for veterans and the deep places they carry in their being forever after service. PTSD and mental health services should be freely and easily available for vets. 💛 Here are a few samples, underglazed and ready to be high fired. #ptsd #ptsdawareness #militarywife #vietnamwar #warishell #veterans #mentalhealth #zippo #lifeinspiringart #atlantaartist #handbuiltpottery #handbuiltceramics #woundedwarriorproject #allgavesomesomegaveall #yellowribbons #pottery #navy #USMC #army #airforce

@mellymelly420 called me out for a #fuckwhattheythinkdanceparty  and I'm pretty sure @addisonsnwonderland called me out to show some clouds as well.  I was just going to hide through this stage of my cold, but I realized my page is about a real person and that's part of being real.  I use cannabis even when I'm sick to help with my pain and anxiety.  That's real. So fuck it, suck it, and keep it real! Throwing this #fuckwhattheythinkdanceparty out to someone in the comments because for some reason my phone isn't letting me tag anyone else....🤷🤷🤷🤷

It took me a long time to accept this but it's the truth. You CANNOT recover from anorexia UNLESS you can fully restore your minimum healthy weight and more.
.
You don't achieve recovery by gaining just enough to be discharged from inpatient. You don't recover by gaining just enough to move outside of the BMI criteria for anorexia. You don't even recover by achieving a minimum healthy BMI of 18.5 or 20, depending upon which criteria you use.
.
True recovery and freedom from your eating disorder will only come when you find the courage to stop micromanaging your intake and weight. You have to let go and allow your body to decide what a healthy weight is for you. We're all different and that's why healthy BMI is a range. Not to say that the minimum is unhealthy for everyone, but that the minimum BMI might be healthy for a few people but there's a healthy set point for everyone within that range. Some at the top, some at the bottom, but most somewhere in the middle.
.
The thing I found hardest in recovery, and I'm sure it's the same for everyone, was seeing my weight go up and up. My body keep growing and growing. And my dress size go up and up. Each week my head screamed ENOUGH! I thought I'd gained enough to be okay and get on with life but I was wrong. I though I was humongous at my lowest BMI and I'm not happy at my current highest weight (pregnancy aside). BUT I feel way happier than I did at my lowest.
.
Anorexia recovery is a long, lengthy process. Weight restoration is the first and most essential step but, if you're able to get that far, it doesn't end there. Weight maintenance is a struggle at first. Body acceptance and body positivity take far longer. The key is to trust your body and to trust those around you.
.
But when you feel like giving up, trust in the process. You DO need each and every one of those lbs/kgs. You really do. Your body and mind can't function in a healthy way without them. Therapy doesn't stand a chance until you get there and stay there.
.
It'll take time to get used to your 'new' weight restored body but sticking with it will be the best decision you ever make.
.
Choose recovery ✨💖💫

Almost exactly five years ago, this little light of mine entered this world —and life as I knew it shattered. The trauma of his birth made previously manageable levels of anxiety unbearable and uncovered previously repressed traumas. I had been seeing a therapist for “postpartum depression” (aka undiagnosed bipolar 2 disorder) since Ben was born, but after Charlie’s birth I entered the frighteningly imprecise world of prescription mental health care. There were many missteps, and in 2017 I came close to losing my battle with suicidal ideation. Every time a terrifying thought of self harm entered my head though, I pictured my boys. Tonight, on this snowy day that ruined everything except this little boy’s smile, the irony that he ruined AND saved my life is not lost on me. I wouldn’t hesitate for even a second to go through it all again because this smart, funny, gregarious, silly, sweet and empathetic soul is *that* delightful. I’ll end this sap fest with a touch of his humor. As I wrote this, tears streaming down my cheeks he said “mommy, are you ok?” “Yes baby, I’m ok. Believe it or not, I’m happy.” “Oh ok. So you’re *too* happy??” 🤣❤️ Not too happy, my love.

#HorsePeople will understand this face more than likely.  When you break out one of the first “winter jackets/coats” for the days it’s going to be a tad brisk on the #Farm , you give the pockets the initial pat down/feel only to discover that you forgot to give your horse the rest of the #AlfalaPellets that you promised him when you wore the same coat last year.

When I was diagnosed with Bipolar disorder I was told I needed to cut back on things to avoid exacerbating my mental illness. I didn’t. To me, achieving my goals was more important than my health. I worked 4 days a week, went to uni full time and had several volunteer positions plus a demanding social life. And then it all crashed and burned. I began to rapid cycle between mania and depresssion and it nearly took my life. 🖤
.
So that’s why I sound like a broken record when I talk about the need for rest. Because I know first hand how perfectionism and the need to achieve can destroy all in its path. I learned the hard way that rest is essential to living a good life. And it is only when we have allowed time for rest that we can truly bloom. 🌸

I'm going to speak my truth and put myself out there...
For a long time I told myself,

I'm going to speak my truth and put myself out there... For a long time I told myself, "don't rock the boat, you'll make things worse for yourself" My daughter and I are in intensive therapy right now, working through things that has occurred over the last few years. Over the last 2 years we have endured abuse from someone that we had loved and trusted. For a long time, I thought the abuse was limited to myself... I never knew what a mama bear was until the moment my child told me someone was hurting them. I immediately went into protection mode. I've watched my child experience some pretty bad panic attacks and nightmares and saw the devastation abuse can do to a child first hand. This is why I have made a separate instagram and blog, to document the journey we are on. The journey of recovering from the trauma we have experienced over the last 2 years. To hold those accountable for their actions, even though they refuse to accept what they've done, and who they are. So if you were wondering why I chose the handle Mama Bear, it's because when you watch someone hurting your child, it awakens something in you, something you didn't know existed until you needed it. As my therapist told me during one of our sessions "You are a powerful mama bear with the ability to protect your children like no one else in this world can"

The motto for the National Maternity Hospital is 'Vita Gloriosa Vita.' Life glorious life. Glorious life indeed. So many beautiful babies are brought into the world in this magnificent place, and just as the babies are born, so too are mothers.

We give so much time to nurturing the growth and development of babies, yet we give none to the mother. Why is this? Why do we gloss over issues that are blatantly staring us in the face at times?

Due to my waters breaking and my having Group B Strep I was essentially on the clock to deliver my baby. A failed induction resulted in the need for an emergency cesarean section.

Bewildered, I heard a scream echo around the theatre. It was me. The anaesthesia had failed and I had felt the scalpel slice through my flesh. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
Traumatised. In love. Stressed. Anxious. So in love. I can't sleep I'm so anxious. Flashbacks. Don't leave me alone. My baby is so beautiful. I'm so anxious. Where is my husband? Overwhelmed. Traumatised. An overwhelming love. I can't do this. I love him. I can't be on my own. I'm so on edge. I created him. I'm so tired. Stressed. In love. Anxious. Overwhelmed. He's beautiful. Please don't leave me don't go I'm so tired he's so beautiful I can't be alone flashbacks anxious I'm in love where have you gone anxious come back flashbacks I can't do this.

My hospital notes read 'good', 'good', and 'stable' for my emotional state in the days following the birth of my baby.

I cried more than I didn't.

My husband asked the nurses to keep an eye on me more than once.

Maybe if someone in a medical establishment had begun to nurture the growth and development of a mother from the onset?

Maybe if someone had taken a second to look? 
Maybe if someone had taken a moment to write a different word in a chart?

Maybe the past 13 months would have been different for me.

Vita glorious vita.

The motto for the National Maternity Hospital is 'Vita Gloriosa Vita.' Life glorious life. Glorious life indeed. So many beautiful babies are brought into the world in this magnificent place, and just as the babies are born, so too are mothers. We give so much time to nurturing the growth and development of babies, yet we give none to the mother. Why is this? Why do we gloss over issues that are blatantly staring us in the face at times? Due to my waters breaking and my having Group B Strep I was essentially on the clock to deliver my baby. A failed induction resulted in the need for an emergency cesarean section. Bewildered, I heard a scream echo around the theatre. It was me. The anaesthesia had failed and I had felt the scalpel slice through my flesh. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° Traumatised. In love. Stressed. Anxious. So in love. I can't sleep I'm so anxious. Flashbacks. Don't leave me alone. My baby is so beautiful. I'm so anxious. Where is my husband? Overwhelmed. Traumatised. An overwhelming love. I can't do this. I love him. I can't be on my own. I'm so on edge. I created him. I'm so tired. Stressed. In love. Anxious. Overwhelmed. He's beautiful. Please don't leave me don't go I'm so tired he's so beautiful I can't be alone flashbacks anxious I'm in love where have you gone anxious come back flashbacks I can't do this. ° * My hospital notes read 'good', 'good', and 'stable' for my emotional state in the days following the birth of my baby.

Who is on your team? Who do you turn to when things get rough? We were made to be in community; we belong to one another. If you’re looking for unconditional acceptance, I highly recommend AA,NA, Al-Anon, therapy groups, etc. unconditional positive regard among individuals that share your perspective is so freeing and affirming. Remember, #mentaldifferences tend to isolate us. Keep sharing. Keep being honest with how you’re really doing. You’re not alone. #anxiety #depression #ptsd #trauma #hope #community #team #AA #NA #Alanon #grouptherapy #friends #trust

Cold Turkey met al die medicatie stoppen. Ik besef waarom het afgeraden wordt. Het is zo een immens verschil voor me. De Stefanie met medicatie en de Stefanie zonder medicatie. Ik voel wat ik voel. Van te voren voelde ik me zo slecht, maar ik kon nooit antwoorden op wat ik juist voelde. Nu voel ik zoveel verdriet, angst, kwaadheid,... ........ Het is echt zo zwaar om elke ochtend terug de kracht te vinden en te vechten tegen het verleden dat me telkens terug tot daar trekt. Daardoor lukt het me niet om te leven in het hier en het nu. Dat is zo vermoeiend en echt waar zo zwaar, want niets laat je merken of je toch kleine stappen maakt richting een overwinning, of je maar ter plaatse blijft trappelen, of geef ik er te veel aan toe en laat ik me nog telkens te veel meeslepen. Ik weet dat ik vaak niet zo sterk ben dan al die 'demonen' en vaak ben ik zo moe dat het makkelijker is om er aan toe te geven, om daarna nog meer oververmoeid en over mijn toeren te zijn. <<<lees verder: zie bio>>>> #ptsd #ptss #overspoeling #teveelemoties #coldturkey #medicatie #moeilijk #doorzetten #elkedagopnieuw #demonen #vechten #leven #overleven #hoofdbovenwaterhouden #watishetbeste #zoektocht #hopeloos #moedeloos #geraakikerooituit #oneerlijk

Some waves are huge and frightening. Others are lovely and gentle. We relish the ones that make us feel special and rail against the ones that scare us.
*
Feelings come in waves. So do all of life’s events. We cling to the ones that we like and reject the ones that we don’t. We think we have control. If we “make” things perfect (through exercise, food intake, quantity of friends, money in the bank, relationships, etc) then bad things won’t happen. If we worry enough, then we are safe. At the end of the day, and the point of Machado’s words (I believe) is that all of the “things” we think give us control over our destiny - including fear, especially fear - just don’t. Some things we just have to ride out. All feelings -good and hard - pass. All of the moments in our daily lives also end.
*
I was worried about this latest doctor’s visit but now it’s over. Things are stable(!!) and I’ll go back for re-testing in 6 months. The visit that had me so nauseous with anxiety this morning is done. I rode the feelings, time passed, and here I am on the other side. And the point of this rambling post? Control what you can which is to say keep swimming. And trust I’ll be there practicing some sad looking backstroke with you.

Petition is in my bio- please sign and share-
Our military #veterans are heroes. They face struggles that we couldn't imagine, and they do it selflessly to protect our great country. However, their transition home can often be just as difficult because of mental and physical ailments from their service. The waitlist for the VA is far too long to quickly handle the care of every returning veteran, but their medical needs are urgent. Some of these needs can only be treated through direct medical care, but other needs can be met through a service dog.
Service dogs can be trained to care for people with #PTSD, visual impairments, hearing impairments, mobility impairments, and many other conditions. Furthermore, these dogs can ensure that the veteran is never alone while dealing with these conditions.
Currently, the VA offers #servicedogs to those with hearing/sight loss and mobility impairments. However, they do not offer dogs to veterans with psychological issues, such as PTSD. I am advocating that, as part of the VA Compensation and Pension (C&P) evaluation process, the VA offer dogs to all veterans diagnosed with psychological or physical conditions.
This small step would make a massive difference in the lives of these men and women. They've given everything for us. Let's give back to them.

My goal lately has been to be transparent and vulnerable, so here it goes:  PTSD can express itself in so many different forms.  It’s important to acknowledge that PTSD is not just associated with military men and women
•
I try to push the memories of the accident away in the busyness of my day.  However, I cannot escape them in my sleep.  My subconsciousness relives the sounds and burning smells from the Jaws of Life, the humming of Air Ornge and the moment frozen in time when I asked myself: Am I going to die in my car today
•
Then, I often wake up screaming, lying on bedsheets soaked from sweat and tears, and when the night terrors are extremely intense, my own urine
•
PTSD is real. And it can affect anyone who experiences any sort of trauma in their life
•
Be real with what you're going through and never be ashamed of your story

I was asked this morning to look for some photos of when I was younger ...a lot younger...why? I asked

As I  gazed upon a few photos I was asked to really look..to feel the essence of this child that held such joy for life. Where life was full of wonder and newness.....and it was in a moment of being and as the energy amped and engulfed me that I was  asked ..what do you see?... in that moment all became clear...yes ...I am older...yes there are wrinkles and a body that needs a bit of fine tuning, a wheel alignment and a change of spark plugs...but what I was shown is how through healing self I have managed to regain that joy that I felt when I was younger...how Iife is full of wonder..I have found me again... I have found the simplicity of life that a child has... People often say how much I have changed since going on this journey but all I have done is by healing across the totality of self is allow that part of me that I have held close to me for fear of ridicule or being hurt to come forth and be. I am me... I am allowing my core to shine.

And now..I can show others how they can do the same. That to me is priceless.

Find a picture of when you were a child..look at it..and know that you too can feel that way again. When you find that photo post one below . I would love to see them.

Blessings 🙏

Sandra

For anyone that seems to have forgotten I’m a badass. 
You guys know I struggle...for years now. 5 if I have to be exact. If you have stayed with me through all that you’re tougher than I thought and if you stayed through this last #celexafiasco you are amazing. I know a few have felt my unnecessary wrath and I have tried to apologize and some of you just aren’t having it ( @buzz807 )and I really don’t blame you. I’m off #celexa and recovering nicely. I’m happy, I smile, I have the feels again and they are actually good ones. #ptsd sucks being a basket case sucks, not having people understand or be in your corner sucks. For everyone that stayed, I’m a better person because of you.

Honestly though, it’s so annoying how some of you are all for “supporting mental illness” and wanting “accurately portrayed mental illness” but only if it’s the “cute and sad anxious baby who needs a hug” opposed to the other terrible symptoms of mental illness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My CBT homework last week was to ask the people I trust to describe me. The rules were only 3 words per person, they couldn't think too hard about it, and they had to be totally honest. I wrote them down and put them up as and when they came in. These are from people who have known me at different points in my life, most of whom have never met each other. It was to show me that the words I describe myself with are rarely used by others in the same way. It was the first time in a long time I have felt like I can be more than my mental health.

Last night I had a wicked migraine😖. I use to get them constantly and they can be completely debilitating. This was the worst one that I’ve experienced since leaving toxic mold, but detoxing from toxic mold and heavy metals can cause a vast array of symptoms from detoxing/herxing. The @thebiotoxinbombshell saved my life by letting me use her magnesium oil, peppermint oil rub and diffuser and doterra essential oil muscle rub last night to help ease my symptoms. 😍🙌🏻 and I chugged 6 glasses of water, of course💦. #migraine #migrainerelief #hydrate #detox #mthfr #lymewarrior #cirs #moldtoxicity #doterra #essentialoils #magnesiumoil #blessed #holistic #candida #painwarrior #heavymetals #recovery #healing #naturaltreatment #wellness #keepgoing #ptsd #essentialoildiffuser #calming

"In this place that I call home My brain's the cliff, and my heart's the bitter buffalo My heart's the bitter buffalo We tore one down, and erected another there The match of the century, absence versus thin air On the way to God don't know My brain's the burger, and my heart's the coal On this life that we call home The years go fast and the days go so slow" ° ° ° "Heart Cooks Brain" by Modest Mouse on The Lonesome Crowded West (1997) ° ° ° I'm in need of superficial validation. So, here's this selfie I took while on a stroll, yesterday, coupled with lyrics to the song I cannot get out of my head. I have been avoiding a lot of music, as it can be triggering; but that doesn't stop it from playing in my mind, anyway.
