    You love control. You want to be strong and independent all the time. You think emotions make you weak. The fact that anxiety makes your emotions that much stronger makes you feel disappointed in yourself. You don’t want to inconvenience anyone around you either so you hide with no where to turn.
.
This world has so many people yet we are so divided and at the VERY SAME TIME we are FEIGNING to be united.
.
The truth is, WE ARE A SOCIAL SPECIES! We NEED each other - and those negative voices & beliefs are NOTHING but ego trips and learned behaviors from other people that do not serve you. Does it make you feel like shit? YES. That’s a sign that those beliefs aren’t working for you! You either keep suffering the consequences of holding on to these false habits and beliefs, or temporarily suffer the work it takes to jump out of them. YOU ARE HUMAN!!!! For goodness sake. We are not made to be perfect, we were made to feel, to have happy times down to terrible times. The more we UNITE with each other and express ourselves, the HAPPIER we will be! 💕🙌🏻💕

    Thirteen years of certainty...but yesterday I got some closure. About a year ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia and PCOS. My Rheumatologist was almost convinced that I had lupus because so many of my symptoms seem lupus related. However, the results are not showing that right now.  Fibromyalgia didn't account for all my symptoms, she knew that I had some type of connective tissue disease/autoimmune disease. She just didn't know which one exactly, so we did test after test. I started treatment in the meanwhile to ensure that I was stabilized/functional. 
The uncertainty was frustrating at times. Test results were not conclusive...but I remained hopeful that one day I would understand everything. 
Yesterday I was diagnosed with Seronegative Rheumatoid Arthritis and anaemia, but we still have more tests to do. 
I feel like I'm getting closer to the answers. I'm not worried. I just want to feel normal again or learn to adjust to my new normal. I just want enough strength to carry out my responsibilities and to live out my dreams. I'm trusting God. I've grown so much since becoming ill. I've learnt how to be grateful, gentle,  patient, empathic,  trusting, understanding and resilient. I know that I won't die before my time. This is just a shadow of death, I will fear no evil.  Pain will not rob me of my joy, love and salvation. I'm resting in the arms of God and I'm going to accomplish His will for my life. 💕💕💕 @inspire._and_love  #ptsd #bipolardisorder #depression #anxietydisorder  #eatingdisorder #dissociativeidentitydisorder #chronsdisease #celiacdisease  #lupus #fibromyalgia #diabetes #cancer #pancreaticcancer #breastcancer #leukemia #cervicalcancer #lymphoma #survivor #endometriosis #pcos #migraine #epilepsy #autism #chronicfatigue #rheumatoidarthritis #seronegativerheumatoidarthritis

    God often stirs our souls for things that seem crazy and uncomfortable. I have found that these are the perfect opportunities to say yes to Him and watch Him work! 🙌⁣
.⁣
When I got pregnant with my first son my husband and I did not even discuss me being a stay at home mom. We both knew our budget relied on two incomes and I really had no clue there were other options. 💁🏼‍♀️⁣
.⁣
During that time, deep down I wanted to be home with my babies, deep down I wanted to have flexibility to meet my husband for lunch dates and go on my kids field trips...but I really thought, well that's just not our life. So in the mean time I applied to graduate school so I could basically spend more money to earn more money. 🤦🏼‍♀️ Praise God He stirred my soul. I got accepted to a graduate program at the University of Florida in Educational Leadership, but decided to defer my start date for 1 year as I adjusted to being a new working mom. Long story short, 3 months later I was quitting my job as a teacher to stay home with our very sick baby boy who had been exposed to too many germs at daycare. 🙄 I was basically missing too much work and we were still paying half of my salary to a daycare we were not using, so it just did not make sense. God closed the door and called me home, even though it made zero sense financially. But God kept providing little opportunities and gifts as we were obedient to Him. My husband got a raise to help with some of the difference and our church offered me a stipend to step in as the director of children's ministry. Both of these things were such a blessing to keep me home for the next 4 years, one more baby boy later! 👬🏼⁣
.⁣
Now as a mom of 2 boys ages 1.5 and 3, we were seriously discussing that I would go back to work, then insert coaching! I saw a friend of mine that I used to teach with doing this whole "part time work, full time salary gig", I honestly thought "there is no way" (I was a huge skeptic and was super worried about what others would think of me), but I at least listened to learn more! The more I learned the more my soul stirred to try it, and God placed sweet women in my life during that time to encourage me to go for it!

    It can be difficult for people to understand conditions that they can't see. What do you wish people knew about anxiety?

    STORY TIME.... soooo Iv been struggling with anxiety/depression since I was 16 years old and let me tell you it’s NOT a walk in the park. It’s waking up every day feeling sick.. it’s finding every little problem with yourself and judging it... it’s not knowing if your gunna be okay and make it feeling like you do... it’s feeling alone like no one understands and gets it... its feeling like you can’t breathe no matter how many deep breaths you take... it’s wanting so bad to be normal and not feel like this from the time you open your eyes till the time you close them. Anxiety and depression are really hard to come by I know from experience trust me and it’s not something easy to deal with but you do and you get thro it because the pain you are dealing with is only temporary there is always help out there you just have to want to help yourself. Don’t be afraid to talk to people or go seek help for your problems it took me 4 years to step up and realize I needed help and I can tell you right now I haven’t felt this great in years just from simply reaching out and talking and getting help. There is always help and always someone to listen I promise it’s not the end. YOU ARE A WARRIOR!!!!! Don’t ever stop fighting your fight!!! 💪🏼💜❤️🧡💛💚💙💪🏼

I often have a difficult time expressing my approach to the #facials and treatments I offer. I don't offer peels, chemical exfoliants or disrupt the barrier. My focus is to always #nourish & #nurture the #skin while supporting the nervous system.

TRYUMPH TUESDAY - I bet you’re already doing a whole lot ‘right’ to support your nervous system and to resource yourself for better stress resilience. This morning I was with a client who is so very good at caring for themselves. We were speaking about the nervous system benefits of one of their favourite things, facials. 
Facials help down regulate hypervigilance in our autonomic nervous system by soothing the facial muscles, muscles essential for healthy social engagement and ventral vagal activation. In addition, receiving safe touch on these sensitive muscles can send a signal to the rest of the body including parts that may not yet feel safe receiving touch, that all is well. The coast is clear. You can relax for a bit. Facials certainly aren’t totally accessible for everyone. I get it. Even massaging your own facial muscles could be beneficial for stress! Also, as human animals we have spent much of our history grooming each other when we are in rest and digest. 
Folks like @britta_beauty are doing beautiful nervous system regulation work. I feel like our facial muscles can be highly attuned to what safe touch without strings might have felt like as babies, if we were lucky to have experienced that. So, remember this.

You are likely gravitating to many things that are allowing you to survive or even potentially feel moments of pleasure and joy. Spending more time reflecting on your body’s intelligence and all the things you’re already doing ‘right’ helps us build on a foundation, instead of picking at ourselves for all we think we could be doing ‘better’. #holisticesthetician #austin #facialsandnervoussystem #nervoussystemregulation #anxietydisorder #anxiety #selfcare #bodyintelligence #letinthegood #strengthfocus #facialreflexology #safetouch #innerwisdom

    it’s almost kind of surreal that i’ll be graduating in just a few weeks. school has consumed the last 6 years of my life (even longer than that if you count before college), and now i’m FINALLY FINISHED.
•
i would be lying if i said i wasn’t absolutely terrified. (and not just because i constantly worry that i’ll have a panic attack during commencement.) but this truly is a WHOLE new chapter in my life.
•
i can’t tell you how many times i almost quit. i came SO close to dropping out SO many times. but i kept telling myself “just finish this one degree. then you’ll never have to go back again. you got this.”
•
i took a semester off. i transferred schools. and guess what? I AM FUCKING DONNNNNE! all my hard work has finally paid off and now i’ll have a fancy, expensive piece of paper to hang on my wall and feel proud of. not because it’s useful (LOL), but because it’s a reminder that i never gave up. and now i can finally focus on what i’m truly passionate about, which is helping people who are struggling with their mental wellbeing. 🖤🎓

    All my life social anxiety interfered with my passions – in exploring, identifying, and developing them. My peers easily got involved and I envied their summer camps, dance classes, sports, and internships. (I couldn’t even get out my front door or make a call to my college guidance counselor to inquire about an internship.) Their resumes were mounting with experiences and developed skills that would open doors, while mine was stifled by overwhelm, panic, and fatigue. 
I craved the life I envisioned – the real me interacting in the world as an energetic, capable, engaged person, succeeding just like so many of my peers, but the reality was laying down a weary body and busy mind in a bed of terror, each night knowing tomorrow would be the same. 
All that changed when I decided I would no longer mold my life to accommodate the anxiety or accept it as a constant companion. My mom and I searched outside of the box, took a whole-body lens approach, and I was 27-years-old when we finally found the right-for-me treatment that decreased the anxiety at the source. Now, I’m finally able to build the life I’ve always wanted.
It’s never too late to challenge or pursue and never too late to become the person you’ve always wanted to be. Dare to never settle. .

    I had such a long day today..I'm worn completely out and have nothing to show for it. But I can let today go and move on 2moro. I can't carry unnecessary baggage with me or I'll be more apt to fall apart. Even though I failed today there's more opportunity tomorrow. (I'm talking to myself, idk about y'all). Lol 💚👑

    Throwback to #chasingthelight last month at #altsummit in #palmsprings.  April has been a struggle for me.  My motivation is low.  I’m exhausted, anxious and overwhelmed.  Nothing is getting done.  I don’t want to leave my bed, yet I’m having a hard time sleeping.  So I decided to start taking Wellbutrin again today and to focus on pulling myself out of this slump.  I’ve gotten through worse and I will climb through this.  If you’re feeling low, hang in there.  Grab a big glass of water, take some deep breaths and think about what you need to feel better right this second.  A nap?  Fresh air?  To call a friend?  Medication refill?  Snack?  Therapy?  Binge watch #dragrace? Journal?  An ice pack for the back of your neck?  Do that thing and then figure out the next.  We’ve got this.

    For all those #teachers and nonteachers suffering #burnout - 5 minute self care tips. What’s your go to tip or activity? Mines boring, classic and sure fire: a nap! Although tbh by the time I’m burnt out that I’m napping, the nap descends into a full on sleep lol. I’m going to try bush walking even if it’s only for a short trip. I feel like being ou in the trees and wilderness will calm me particularly when my #anxietydisorder fuelled burnout makes me #claustrophobic in my own abode. . .
.
. I also adopt, sometimes, a What’s the worst that can happen? Approach. And then : so in 5 months or 1 year, will I care? Will it matter? .
. . These tips are from @stacieswift.  What’s your tips and strategies??

    Barbara Doyle (@barbaramsd) examines the complicated issue of navigating a marriage when you have anxiety disorder and your partner does not. Link in bio.

“Being married to someone who doesn’t share my level of anxiety is a blessing, I know. I would never want my partner to experience the desperation I feel, day to day, and I am grateful for his generosity and kindness with me when I am in a particularly bad state. But with it comes a world of emotions that are difficult to process, there is the frustration I feel, and the loneliness—how can he possibly understand me when he is not plagued with constant trepidation, begging whatever gods might be to spare my family the plights that others face?

It’s so difficult sometimes for me to just accept his comforting words or touch. To know that although he cannot empathize with me, he sympathizes with me, and in that he is sincere and loving. There is the worry (yes, there’s that word again) that I am a burden to him. The fear that one day, despite his assurances otherwise, he will realize what it costs to love someone like me and that he would be better off with another who handles anxiety like he does, as a normal thing to feel, analyze and dismiss. How could I blame him, if he did that? Doesn’t he deserve her? There is the need I feel for him to be my rock. My constant.”

    Anxiety disorders are much more than just nervousness and worrying. They can cause terrifying fear about things that other people wouldn't give a second thought to. It also leads to depression. Ketamine therapy can help. ketamineatrelievus.com
