This is my story; it's not a pretty one, but it's mine. This is life with Fibromyalgia, this is life with a hearing loss, this is life with pain as my constant companion.
"You no longer rule your body,
You no longer own those rights." - EA
Charles Bukowski (via psych-facts)
You are allowed to grieve the years you lost to mental illness. You’re allowed to be mad that it happened to you. You’re allowed to pine after the person you might have been had it been different. But don’t let that get in the way of your growing into your new self and following a wholly new path for your life.
a friendly tip: if you feel the urge to self harm get an ice cube and hold it in your hand for a while. it relieves the compulsion in a less destructive way. therapists have used this with their patients and i have tried it myself it works pretty well
Okay wow this is now my favourite post on Tumblr. Signal boost into infinity.
I’m so used to shaking for medical reasons or because I haven’t eaten (blood sugar) that I didn’t recognize I was shivering until I couldn’t feel my hands.
I’m a happy pixie today!
After an awkward, and psychically painful family event the day before, I spent all of yesterday in bed recuperating.
Today I woke up refreshed and relatively pain-free. Sometimes you just need to focus on yourself.
M took me shopping to get something for Love.
I’m resting with a purring kitty in my lap.
Life is good.
