Tag Archives: Mental Heath

This post will be very different from anything I have posted on my blog and or my site ever before and could be triggeringIf you have ever dealt with an eating disorder of any kind. Earlier this week I went to my pain specialist, I have a muscle condition, and use a wheelchair, as well as mental health issues. I was talking to the nurse in front of the scale he was asking me if I added anything to my chair or if he could just use the weight he had on file for the chair. They weigh the wheelchair separately once and then they subtract to get your actual weight. I was nervous because I never actually weighed myself and since recovery I have gained weight I’m probably way more than I ever have. I’m trying to be OK with that. When my doctor came in and said, Doctor:…

The last few days have been pretty tough for me so when I saw this I knew I had to post it because my first reaction was I couldn’t have said it better myself. I needed to see this and I’m sure others will benefit as well.

There is no denying it, today What’s a bad day. I’m still sad. And I know tomorrow will be different but in this moment the only thing that went right today what is the fact that I had 3/2 eaten pints of ice cream in my freezer. I now only have one. The best part of my day was finishing off both mint chip and cookies and cream ice cream. Not all at once. I was bliss. My legs are still tight but I did manage to get them stretched for a minute or two today and that felt good. And it’s worth it if not only for 15 minutes of looseness. Fellow CP lifers you get me. The third thing that went well today Dash I was able to get a trip to my tailor to hopefully make me some wraps/capes /ponchos. I have a very large collection of…

It’s interesting when you find your hobby because often it doesn’t start out like a hobby at least for me it was just an app that I downloaded thinking that I would colour once in a while. This colour by number app, and yes it is colour by number. Yes I am 28. Yes I still seem to love it because it allows me to zone out. And I can truthfully say in app that allows me to zone out but still allows me to create something is something I have not found in a very long time. In that respect I do not think that it is a waste of time or money, I did pay like six dollars so that the ends wouldn’t bug me. Right now though I think it’s OK because I know that my life is kind of stressful at the moment and I like…

Just Breathe. process not perfection. #Kinion Always.

I left this morning at 6:30 AM I came back this evening at 8:30 PM. My muscles are so tight and contracted even when I try to relax them I can’t. And I was sitting all that time. Don’t get me wrong today was a really good day. I mean work was work, but I was able to get my nails done and pamper myself a little bit in. Which you know, if you know me, getting my nails done and a couple other things at the spa once a month is part of my mental health/self-care routine. If it all went away tomorrow I could definitely deal with it. Believe me, I have thought about cutting it out. But then I’ve had people in my life, even my mom, tell me not to. Even saying/typing that, is really hard for me, because I know that money could be going…

As I look back on today the work part, professional Mindy did nothing remarkable really. In the taking care of business, personal Mindy, she got it together today. Now I’m going to stop talking about myself in the second person, and say, today I feel like great strides were made, I finally feel somewhat on top of several different situations going on in life that I have needed to get a hold of for a while. To finally feel in control of something, after not having control of it for a long time, I can’t describe the feeling. I also found myself being conscious of my needs yet resource full with what I have. The last and one of the most noticeable shifts in my thinking has come gradually over the past few months but I certainly noticed it today. I don’t deny any more that I like and in…

Not so long ago are used to believe adulting and therefore life came with a very specific set of values and goals that once completed would solidify you as a successful adult. Having a job, a house, a partner, and just being able to do things whenever the heck you wanted. No I know this fantasy version of adult thing that I used to hold as absolute truth does not look the same for everyone and that is OK. I have a job, and apartment and I can do things pretty simultaneously well some of the time and let’s not forget Jackson and Persia does this make me less of an adult? I don’t think so. What people often forget about adulting and yes I’m putting actual adults in this group as well is the mindset shift which comes with each experience and time. Not everyone’s lives look like the…

Wow 200 days! I can’t believe I have made it this far. I really didn’t think I’d make it even past week. Honestly this challenge has truly become part of my life and changed how I look at things. Years ago I was a ball of stress, never even able to take a breath when talking to someone. Now – well someone describe me as very chill. And I am. To say I don’t let the little things get to me would be a lie, because everyone has their days. I had one yesterday in fact. But often I am able to put the little things into perspective, and even the big things don’t seem life ending or life-changing, Unless of course they are. 200 days is a mile stone, but there are so many fun things to come, knowing about a few of them and not knowing about many…

There are some days where, For whatever reason you get up and do you know and that it is going to be a good day today. On the flipside there are other days where you know that something bad is going to happen. This was neither of those days. This was one of those days that memories are made of. That sounds corny, I know. But the more I have these days, The more I want to acknowledge them. The days where I just feel like a normal person. Regardless of what went on in my day, Weather I’m having a good day or not medically, regardless of the chair. My people make me feel normal, my people being, my tribe, the people who I choose to surround myself with. Not those who I have to be around. Like I said yesterday, I feel like the choosing makes all the…
