Never really been one to suffer with anxiety and panic attacks (with the exception of a brief time i had PTSD) however recent events have beought back these symptoms. My anxiety this evening has been through the roof and my emotions are all over the place. I laid in bath for an hour staring in to space to no avail. I find it hard to sit on emotions or anything that makes me feel uneasy; as a general rule i wear my heart on my sleeve and talk openly about most things. I hate it when those things we do box off at back of our minds just sit and niggle until you lose the control to fight them.
I want to cuddle up with my little woof and forget the world for now. #anxiety#stress#worry#ptsd#headsamess
Whenever I am hypomanic or in psychosis, my fight or flight response kicks in. In general, the fight or flight response is triggered by a perceived threat or danger. "The fight or flight response refers to a specific biochemical reaction that both humans and animals experience during intense stress or fear. The sympathetic nervous system releases hormones that cause changes to occur throughout the body." Fear in particular is synonymous with anxiety. Have you ever felt like a cornered animal and your only instinct was to fight back at a perceived threat? I have tried to hide when my flight response is triggered. When I have been in psychosis, I have even run away from home and shut off my phone so nobody could find me. Although medications do exist to treat anxiety, there are also coping methods available to those of us with a strong fight or flight response. Cognitive behavioral therapy can be extremely effective in learning how to assess perceived dangers and threats. I've learned 99% of the time, my anxieties and fears are imagined and the things I fear do not come to pass but even with that knowledge, I still have the dreaded panic attacks and I have to turn to medication to treat them. When the fight or flight response kicks in, one feels a sudden burst of energy to respond to the stressor. It's a completely natural reaction, so, be patient and gentle with yourself. Talk to your doctor if you're suffering from prolonged thoughts that are fearful or anxious. Left untreated, living in such a way can affect your behaviors but there are positive solutions to keep you mentally healthy! #mentalhealth#fightorflight#anxiety#hypomania#psychosis#threat#danger#perception#fear#ptsd#biochemical#reaction#stress#stressors#humans#animals#sympathetic#nervoussystem#nervoussystemhealth#hormones#meds#medications#cognitivebehavioraltherapy
GWOT Kids has been created in order to give a space to those of us who feel like no one can understand the challenges that have been presented to us, it is intended to be a community run by military kids, for military kids. Its purpose is to provide a communication hub through which members of our community can express themselves, their opinions on matters that directly affect us and our families, and as a social meeting place where you can talk to peers who come from a simikar situation. I have friends that are dealing with difficult family situations due to PTSD, I have friends whose parents are currently deployed for the fifth time, or who are moving to another random state for the sixth time. The point of GWOT kids is to give those individuals a place to communicate, to think, and to know that they arent the only ones who face these challenges. Unlike some other programs that have attempted to accomplish this, GWOT Kids is run by members of the community. We get it, we have been there, and if you need help we are here.
🗣🗣 Love yo people while they here. Love em enough to help make them better. We encourage bad behavior, or WE SAY NOTHING, then we cry at every funeral. The black community is plagued by generational curses that goes beyond lean. WE need work from the inside. Help and advice from the inside of our race. Rest in Paradise @fredosantanassr 😔 one thing I firmly believe is it gotta be something better once we leave here. Rest up baby. Whatever pain you was tryna sip away is gone now. Help bring light and guidance to your people as an angel now ✨✨✨
This is what a bad pain day looks like for me. Going on a few hours of broken up sleep.
Living with Fibromyalgia my whole life, I've just recently noticed (again) how I've gotten pretty stuck in my ways of dealing with things. Unhealthy ways of dealing with things. When hurt or rejection obstruct my path, I shut down. My walls go up, I become defensive, and I just want to run away from people forever. Live with animals in the woods and never have to feel like a broken burden of a human anymore.
I am having to retrain my own brain, aaand at 32, that shit ain't easy. But with openness and honestly the past two years or so on social media, and with friends and family, I have learned much. I have gained some new sweet and understanding friends, and have lost a few pals who don't,..
I have been hurt, and have experienced healing. Still searching for that healing, even in small ephemeral doses. I won't give up on you life, I promise. And for those of you who are struggling with chronic pain/illness and mental illnesses, keep your chin up babies. My heart feels you, and I'm sending you love and healing today. And when you're down in the dumps, just remember, Not everything sucks!
🤔 Sometimes people will hear you and be able to change their behavior, but often their behavior has more to do with their own need for approval than with your need for support. No matter what their response, you need to be firm and hold your ground. At the end of the day, your health is your responsibility.
My fears teach me courage. My weaknesses coach me to strength. My scars remind me not to make the same mistakes. I can become who I long to be by loving who I am now.
Everyday push harder. Push for one more rep. When it burns, do at least one more. Push your mind further than it has gone and you will see a whole new 🌎! It is a mental game. That why personal development is so important. You need to work on yourself mentally and spiritually with reading, podcasts, motivational videos on YouTube! Motivate yourself! Learn something new! 🤩
My job as a coach is to work on myself first. If I can not show up and hold myself accountable than I could not expect to gain the trust of anyone. It takes effort put in. It takes working on myself on the soul, physically with working out, and nourishing my body with healthy food! ❤️ How could someone not want to invest in their health? Are you a coffee drinker, like I used to be? That’s like maybe one less coffee a week or so to make back your money. I was the girl who had ever excuse in the 📚 but then I just committed. I said “YES, help me change my life!” 🙌
Chase the feel GOODS with us 🌎🏃🔥❤💛💚 https://linktr.ee/isabelle_dowlin .
Some scars can’t be seen with the naked eye. Some are hidden deep inside, unknown to everyone else, but all too real to the person they belong to. That’s what Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is: a vivid replay of the darkest moments of someone’s life. Although time has passed, the flashbacks and night terrors associated with PTSD are like déjà vu.
This is the reality for Lexi. She served in the military in Iraq. She lost her best friend and was nearly killed herself. When she returns home, Lexi has a hard time trying to readjust to civilian life. Alcohol becomes her best friend. She doesn’t mean to drink so much, but it’s the only thing that seems to numb the pain. That is until she meets Keegan, a police officer with a dark past of his own.
I have been a fan of @alisonmelloauthor for a while now. Although I have loved all of her books, I think the new “Shattered Souls” series is my favorite. It’s hard-hitting, poignant, and inspiring. An Army veteran herself, Alison does a phenomenal job of raising awareness for what our brave men and women in uniform face while defending our great nation. This book is a must read! Just make sure you have the tissues ready!
The face you make when your human got the job and now you can start requesting everything on your wishlist 😏
I’m so excited to announce I got the position! I’ll be a boarding attendant! I’m so stoked. It was a little overwhelming because I have to learn every dogs name, personality etc, all the codes they use but I’m sure I’ll get the hang of it after a week or two. The most exciting part is ariya is allowed to come to work with me and get free services on the days I’m scheduled. She just needs to get her evaluation scheduled so she can attend the day care section! For a congratulations present, I’m ordering ariya her first CM collar! (Collar mania)..I’ve been eyeing her shop for awhile and decided to bite the bullet and get a custom PLL collar 🤗
Tryin' to get control
Pressure's takin' its toll
Stuck in the middle zone
I just want you alone
🎤 Perfect Illusion by @ladygaga =============
📆 April 2017.
This photo was taken during a time when for the first time ever I lost all faith, confidence, hope, happiness and love for myself. I was so desperate to rediscover myself I almost went to extreme measures, not of God, to find it. Shortly right after, God unveiled my eyes to the truths of the world. The world we live in is a “Perfect Illusion” created by the enemy to deceive us of the true meaning of love. I thank my Heavenly Father for His Almighty grace! I have renewed faith, confidence, hope, happiness and love in Jesus Christ! Today, I have so much peace in my heart because I know God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit will never forsake me! They will never abandon me! They will always protect me! My heart is overflowed with joy and excitement for God’s plan in my life! I am free! Praise the Lord!!! 🙏🏼 // #God#Jesus#love#joy#blessed#amen#sin#thankful#ladygaga#perfect#faith#hope#sexy#depression#anxiety#ptsd#sad#battle#potd#pray#nevergiveup#nopainnogain#freedom

I know I answer this a lot... but its seriously my #1 question, hands down! HOW can CBD OIL help soo many different things?? About 30 years ago, the Endocannabinoid System was discovered. Essentially, this is a communication system between the cells in our bodies. The Endocannabinoid System and its Receptors are found throughout our body... in brain,organs, connective tissues, glands and immune cells. In each tissue, the cannabinoid system performs different tasks. but the goal is always the same: homeostasis.
Homeostasis basically means the goal is for the body to be able to take care of itself despite whats going on externally. Self-healing.
When our cells are no longer communicating, they don't know where and how to repair our bodies. IN COMES CBD OIL! When we introduce the cannabinoids back into our systems, our cells are able to communicate again. Now, when the body is injured in some way, the cells know where to go and how to fix it!
This is why you see testimonials for everything from anxiety to PTSD to autoimmune disorders to GERD to IBS to fibro to headaches and the list goes on and on. It's not that the oil just knows where to go...it fixes the communication system throughout our body so it knows where and how to heal itself.
P.S. CBD is attracted to the receptors in our body. THC is attracted to the receptors in our brain (and makes us high). Our bodies actually produce its own cannabinoids, with a good diet rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Diet + CBD = Health.
