May is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. I never cared about mental health issues until after I attempted suicide. If I had cared, maybe I would have known I needed help before things got really bad. That’s why I am a mental health advocate. I love this pic because it’s the first artistic photo I did that was inspired by my battle with ptsd and the depressive episodes and anxiety attacks that come with it. 1 out of 5 Americans is carrying the burden of mental illness on their back. So be mindful. And be sensitive. You never know what a person might be going through.

I’m really struggling to think of a caption but at least I managed to force out a smile for you all! I’m finding it incredibly difficult to get back into posting on here, I know I’ve had times before where I have long breaks and come back stronger but right now I just feel like I let myself go way too much. - But I won’t be beaten and I will find a way back into this because I always do, it really means a lot to me to be sharing my life on here so I’ll make it happen. It doesn’t matter what could have been if I stayed consistent and it doesn’t matter how much I wish I did things differently. What matters is what I do NOW to get myself where I want to be. - Take rest when you need it because it’s important to recover and relax but don’t confuse rest with just being lazy!

Hi. My name is Meredith and I’m bipolar. I don’t want to be, but it’s a reality I face. I’ve had my ups and downs, mostly downs, but I’m finally able to keep it under control... for the most part. I have to work really hard to be okay every day, but every day, it gets a little easier. I have a whole set of tools that I’ve learned along the way. I can tell you that I’ve been down. I thought I was a lost cause. I gave up completely. I stopped leaving my house. I stopped showering. I only got out of bed to cook food. I spent all of my time either asleep or crying. I had more hope than I thought. I made the choice to get help. I went to therapy almost every day for six weeks, and it saved my life. The guilt that I carried around for so long is gone. The sadness and hopelessness are gone. I’m free from my depression (of course, not without the help of five medications). I may not want to be in this situation, but I’m not ashamed. I’m not afraid to tell my story, and, most importantly, I’m not afraid to help others who are in my situation. You have more hope for your life than you think. #mentalhealthmonth #stopthestigma

People often use phrases like “The weather is so bipolar” since society has turned them into a joking matter. When we use them as adjectives we are normalizing the illnesses and taking the severity away from them. People use them as if it was something simple. This does not help eliminate the stigma. I know most of you probably do because of the lack of knowledge. I am please asking you to rethink what you say when you are using them as adjectives. My mental illness is not an adjective. #StopTheStigma

I would give myself a pass mark this week, walked around the Barossa Goldfields for the first time, a nice walk around the river, and a bike ride. My pain is the little voice in my head that tries to hold me back because it knows if I continue, I will change. Sometimes we all need patience in order to find true happiness. It won't come fast and it won't come easy, but it will be worth it. Don't ever lose hope, Life will always try to make things difficult for you, but every time you overcome obstacles, you come out stronger. . . . . #depression #positivevibes #suicideprevention #mentalhealthawarness #bekind #supportorthers #fuckthehaters #support #motivation #lifeisbeautiful #mentalhealthmatters #bipolar #liveinthenow #lifesjourney #life #enjoylife #nevergiveup #mentalhealthwarrior #helpothers #hope #positivethoughts #goals #stopthestigma #peaceful

THINKING ERRORS PART 2 | Catastrophising | We’re all guilty of doing this occasionally; you imagine & believe that the worst possible thing will happen in a situation. | When my anxiety peaked, this was the hardest symptom to deal with. | I was afraid to go on escalators or lifts, crowded places, I was literally scared of everything & barely left the house. Hell, it took me 3 years to use our downstairs toilet because I thought a sewer rat would jump up out of it and attack me (true story) | I can laugh now and see how irrational it was, but at the time the fear was so strong I just couldn’t overcome it. | |The solution? Challenge your thinking! | Ask yourself ‘do I think this regularly?’ ‘Has anything bad ever happened before?’ ‘What’s more likely to actually happen?’ | | Once you face your fears head on, you will gradually start to feel less frightened, until eventually, you overcome your fears. | It doesn’t happen overnight, but keep at it and you’ll do it! | A x

I’m the smallest I’ve been since I was in middle school... But did you know that according to BMI I am considered heavily overweight? There have been enough studies out there to prove that BMI is NOT an accurate way to depict health and wellness.

A few months back I had put in a suggestion to be a speaker for the Amazon Spark Talks - Amazon’s new version of a talk series, inspired by Ignite Seattle. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d be chosen. Who am I, in a company of thousands, to be worthy of speaking and sharing my story? But a few weeks back, I got an email asking to present. I was hesitant and questioned if I should say “no”. I was in the midst of preparing for a large event and didn’t think there was anyway I could muster the strength to prepare. ...yet, somehow, I did. So shaking in my limbs, and quivering in my voice, I stood in front of a blinding light, and shared my story of my mental disorders in an attempt to bring awareness on a problem so many of us face every single day. I talked about my suicide attempts, my self-inflicted scars, and attempted to make clear that my story was just one...just one of so, so many. Those voices, those dark demons we try to fight...they might never go away - but it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t get easier. And I may be slowly traveling on a journey of self acceptance, but to talk about it, is to help make others learn to accept it. So thank you Amazon, and Amazon Connect, for letting my trembling voice be heard...and hopefully, if even just vocalizing my journey - difficult as it was - reached one single person, it was worth every nervous second. @connect_at_amazon @amazon . . . . #amazon #bepeculiar #selfhelp #mentaldisorder #itgetsbetter #depression #anxiety #ptsd #motivational #igniteseattle #publicspeaker #stopthestigma #awareness #eatingdisorder #positivevibes #suicideprevention #disorders #eatingdisorderrecovery #selfrecovery #mindfulness #bodydismorphia #inspire #masochism #recoveryisworthit #recoveryispossible #selfharm #selfharmrecovery #loveyourself #learntolive #mentalhealth

@idillionaire is one of my favorite pages for inspiration. Her affirmations are also quite helpful for those living with anxiety. #Repost @idillionaire with @get_repost ・・・ To anyone who’s reading this, I pray that whatever that is hurting you or whatever that you are constantly stressing about gets better. May the dark thoughts, the overthinking, and the doubt exit your mind right now. May clarity replace confusion. May hope replace fear. May blessings and success fill your life. May the light of your spirit shine so bright that nothing can dim your glow. You deserve inner peace. You deserve mental clarity. Something that has been bothering you for awhile is about to come to an end. You’re about to be released from the pain right into blessings. Just hold on and be patient. The answers you need and the clarity you deserve are on the way. Believe that. Allow yourself to receive it by completely surrendering instead of resisting. There's times things get hard, but that doesn't mean you need to stay stuck on it. Be hopeful that things can change for you. Don't be hard on yourself as you are transforming and getting better. You don't need to judge yourself for past mistakes. You don't need to feel guilty about what went wrong. All that is gone. Now is the time to start embracing yourself. The more patient, loving, and understanding you are with yourself, the more you can enter the next phase of your growth with ease. Comment if you're READY for POSITIVE CHANGES and GREAT BLESSINGS!

Mental illness is not personal failure. It simply is what is and it might suck at times but it doesn’t define ones identity. Perhaps it’s a sign that the individual needs a little more love and understanding ❤️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ ▪️ #health #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthmatters #suicideprevention #mentalwellness #mentalhealthrecovery #anxietyrecovery #depressionawareness #selfharmawareness #yourstoryisntoveryet #ptsd #suicideawareness #breakthesilence #stigmafighter #majordepression #endthestigma #breakthestigma #stopthestigma #mentalillnessawareness #mentalillnessrecovery

Well the littlest lady and I made a trip to talk with the doctor. We have a plan to slightly adjust my medication. I feel good about our plan and am grateful for my doctor who listened and validated my concerns. The tools that I have in my toolbox were not keeping me where I deserve to be so it was time to get some more help. Here’s to more good moments than bad, being less quick to anger, staying more present, and feeling like the me that I deserve to feel like. #coachkari #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #anxiety #depression #postpartumdepression #stopthestigma #momlife #girlmom #forwardprogress #itsnotasprintitsamarathon #themirrorisdirty

Day 4 #mentalhealthawarenessmonth mental health: “imprisonment; limiting ones thought process and takes away a bit of freedom of will and being. Whatever you think, you try and do is being done while being entrapped in its clutches.” ⛓ •Thank you for everyone who is sharing!! It’s so encouraging to see people reach out in these ways. One of the most important things for healing that I’ve come to realize through my battle with mental health, is knowing that I’m not alone. There are so many others who feel this way too. And all of your contributions to this page help more people than you know ☺️ •PLEASE DM IF YOU WANT TO GET INVOLVED!! I love hearing from you all💓 • • • • • #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mentaldisorder #mentalhealthawareness #mentaldisorderawareness #getinvolved #shareyourstory #notalone #imprisonment #stopthestigma #day4 #ocd #anxiety #anxietydisorder #depression #gethelp #strength #youcandothis #photooftheday #instagood

I didn't realize that May was Mental Health Awareness month... How fitting since I have been in a downward anxiety spiral for the last week. Oy vey. I'm pretty transparent about being a hot mess, but no one really sees when anxiety gets the best of me (except my poor husband, bless his heart)because I hide at home until it subsides enough for me to join the world again as a semi-functioning human. One of these days I'll put on a brave face and hope to help #StopTheStigma but until then I will just be thankful for the kindness others show me and hope I reciprocate it appropriately. ❤❤❤ · · · #bekindtooneanother

The last 2 years have been a difficult season of life. . Yes, we have been blessed beyond measure 🙌. But it hasn't been all roses 🥀 Our 3 year struggle with #infertility has challenged me in every way- our marriage, my mental health, my faith. 😳 I'm pretty sure a single natural #probiotic has kept me from completely losing myself (gut health has a substantial impact on mental health!) But I finally decided to seek counseling and have been blessed with the sweetest counselor for the last few months. . As I work through the emotional baggage of mental health struggles (#stopthestigma), I am morphing into a new woman. This woman is the parent to an #onlychild. A hard-working wife to a hard-working #military husband. I am a southern girl at heart. A servant to the community. A daughter of the King! And so many other amazing things! I am severely #flawed and extremely thankful! #Thisisme . Now on to the next level of life! 🌞 Here's to change and growth 🥂 Come with me for the journey because it will be a beautiful ride.❤ #seasons #lifelessons #growth #everchanging #metamorphosis #mentalhealth #ittakesavillage #Boise #Idahome #southerngirl #borninthesouth

“Shaming/blaming women for a man's inability to keep it together is a very major problem.”—Ariana Grande /// After being blamed for Mac Miller’s recent DUI, Ariana Grande spoke out on her toxic relationship with Mac. “how absurd that you minimise female self-respect and self-worth by saying someone should stay in a toxic relationship because he wrote an album about them.”—Ariana Grande. Since her response, the fan who originally tweeted about her has since apologized and recognized the bias in his thinking. /// Are you a fan of Ariana Grande?- - - #arianagrande #macmiller #toxicrelationships #mentalhealthawareness #selfcare #selfworth #stopthestigma

May is mental health awareness month. Let’s remember not all pain is #physical, and not all wounds are #visible. Everyone is fighting different #battles, so be #kind when you can. You don’t know what others are going through. Sometimes when people are in a “sunken place”, you need to be willing to sit with them in the dark. To be a candle we also have to burn. #mentalhealthawareness #may #stopthestigma #yourbrainmatters #feelingsmatter #happyisnttheonlyemotionthatisallowed #damagedbutnotbroken #helpothers #helper #therapy #therapist #letshealtogether #kindnessisfree

Sam had an interview with Chris Desmond, host of @uncomfortableisok podcast about a week ago. Sam talked about his experience of doing this project. He spoke about how he got out of his comfort zone, going from being socially anxious to being in front of the camera regularly. Sam says it is important to get out of our comfort zone and talk about what's under the surface. Check out the podcast: @uncomfortableisok. Our episode should be released soon. We'll be sure to share it on Facebook. We love the work you're doing Chris!

Today I am 28 years old. Besides my birthday, May also marks five years in recovery for my eating disorder, depression, and anxiety. In April, I finally walked into a gym after about six years of not working out/ being physical because I was far too compulsive and obsessive. I wanted to punish myself through physical activity, which is in sharp contrast to how I was raised as an athlete and a dancer. I lost my way. I wasn’t sure how to start again. The gym I walked into in April wasn’t just a gym— I knew I couldn’t go back to the numbers, the reps, the inside-my-head-ness. I walked into @titleboxingclubardenhills hoping maybe there was a place for me. The Title family scooped me up, understood my story, and handed me a pair of gloves. Since I put those gloves on, I have felt self love, confidence, and power pour back into the body I hurt so badly. When I hit the bag, I can’t think about numbers. I think about how I gave myself heart problems. Jab. I think about how I had to relearn how to eat. Cross. I think about the athlete inside, who’s intentions were pure, who I ignored. Hook. I think about hospital beds. Left Hook. I hear my coach in my ear “Fighters, your fitness is not guaranteed, your health is not for sure. You fight for it right here, every day, and forever.” The bell sounds. I’m here to fight now. I’m here to recover. I’m here to grow and grow and grow. I am grateful. And proud. And 28. I want to thank the love of my life @ztm_oruam for, maybe unknowingly, giving me the inspiration to start boxing. And for being a remarkable man and friend. I love you. I want to thank my friends, there are so many, who lift me up, hold me when I cry, and hold space for me in their lives. @erinraeyurkinas @giulialondon @shootingmissrose @_sierra_arias_ @rachaeltaylorrr @steph_koehne @amandaruewho @halvorsonemily @sarahfishbowl Thank you. 💕 #stopthestigma

There are so many things to be grateful for. Just the mere fact you are reading this, is a reason to be grateful since some people can’t read nor have the ability to have social media. Not only being grateful is to have good manners, but it also opens door to new opportunities such as more meaningful relationships. It also reduces toxic emotions such as resentment. There are many studies that show many positive side effects of gratitude such as sleeping better, having a better psychological health, and improvement of self esteem. What are you grateful/thankful for today? For me, I am extremely grateful for this boy right here. 😊 #gratitude #grateful #gracious #psychologicalhealth #begrateful

This is what I fight for, thank you all for the overwhelming positivity! It truly helps! So last night turned bad for a few reasons and was very bad, tears turned to panic and then turned to a migraine. Which I haven't had one since being hospitalized. BUT thanks to a few people and kind words I didn't fall too far and I somewhat contained thoughts of selfharm and suicide ideation, so thank you all. Have a good day and keep fighting. You CAN do it! 💋🌙 #MakeChesterProud #Postitive #sicknotweak #positivementalattitude #mentalhealthawareness #suicideprevention #stopthestigma #KeepThePromise #youarenotalone #AlwaysKeepFighting #youareenough #LoveYourselfFirst #MentalHealthMatters #StayStrong #KeepGoing #KeepFighting #fuckdepression #yougotthis #endthestigma #selfharm #mentalhealthwarrior #selfharmer #suicide

“Mental health complications have affected my life by making me feel worthless and alone. When I thought I would never get better... I would be surprised by a having a good day. So try the hardest when things seem hopeless.” -Eddie
