✨ DAY 20 of #myhousethismonth - hidden away ✨ .

A little flat lay this morning of the contents of my bedside table, which are hidden away in a drawer in my efforts to kid myself I’m tidy 😂 .

I’ve nearly finished Fates and Furies and its contents are even better than its gorgeous front cover - read it if you can! 🌸 .

Also pictured are my childhood teddy (can’t bring myself to part with him but also can’t bring myself to have him on display!), my trusty leopard print headband (which adorns my hair most days because leopard print is a neutral and there’s no outfit it doesn’t improve, right?), my beautiful watch which was a present from my ex but I like so much I kept wearing oops 🙊, and my Lush sleepy cream for those insomnia-filled nights where you just need to unwind - this stuff smells divine! .

And then a little bit of #instareality with the baby book I read to Jude every evening after bath while I desperately hope he’ll go to sleep tonight, and my antidepressants because let’s not pretend single motherhood is all sunshine and flowers, hey? I might have missed #mentalhealthweek but it’s always worth trying to normalize these things I think 🖤 .

I am little late to join in for #mentalhealthawarenessweek2019 , but inspired by @grad_selfcare and @herstemstory I wanted to share my story too and be part of #mentalhealthawarenessmonth. All the talk around#mentalhealth is amazing but situation of Indian graduate students in science academia is worst compared to any other part of world I feel.🤔
.
As graduate students, it is expected from you to read literature and conduct experiments, write research papers, contribute to science outreach, collect data, give presentations, work odd hours with no social life, and all this with little or no support from mentors or peers. This situation is still better at other countries when compared to India. Leaving the 5% of Indian Universities, the lack of #mentorship and mental health #counselling in campuses just makes the situation worse for graduate students. 👩‍🔬
.
The successdul scienctific publication is well celebrated and cheered for while the rejection and failures faced are shoved under the carpet. 😶 √ I think there needs to more talk about the failures faced by graduate students. √ The mental health counseling must be available in Indian Universities and which must be free of cost. 💰 √ If counseling already exists, more awareness is needed to make students aware about the same.📢 √ There has to be student societies present for needed peer support. 👬 √ Know when to say NO, even if that is to your supervisor. You do not have to serve to their unrealistic demands outside lab or perhaps the odd meeting hours.❌ √ Have an activity outside the lab, anything which makes you happy. 💚

If all the needed emotional support is provided to the #PhD students, there definitely would be a downward curve in suicidal rate among students in Indian Universities.
.
It isn't uncommon that Phds drop out  even after 2-3 years of graduate school. I left a lab recently realizing the toxic work culture which affected my mental health and left me in a pit of #depression popping #antidepressants. The lack of mentorship and help only aided my anxiety which made me think about my self worth and contribution in the lab. .
MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS!!

Today couldn’t come soon enough. Desperately hoping that the new meds make life a bit more bareable.

Who loves cardamom?  Not only does it taste divine, smell heavenly, look beautiful... But it has healing properties too! It’s been used for centuries in both Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine. It’s specialties are in gastrointestinal health, in treating inflammation and dental issues. It was used for centuries for its antimicrobial properties, in lots of different applications. Now, there is also research being done to assess its benefits as an antidepressant and - an aphrodisiac! What a spice!  Tell me - what do you love most about cardamom, and how do you use it in your life? 😉

For those of you that don’t already know, I relapsed bad when my dog passed back in September; I was so depressed that my doctor put me on Zoloft just so I could function at work. I was scared to get off it because I decided to get sober while on it, and after 19 years of heavy drinking & off-and-on drugging, I thought maybe the Zoloft was the only reason I was able to do it THIS TIME around. But guess what!? Today marks four full weeks without it, and I’ve never felt better in my life! I have not had a single urge to drink or drug, and I didn’t realize what a FOG that medication was putting me in! I really don’t even think it helped a whole lot, for real! I still had major mood swings, still became so upset about things, yet not quite motivated enough to do anything about it! I gained 20 pounds, yet I wasn’t exercising or controlling my diet, wasn’t keeping my house up, wasn’t really doing a whole lot of anything. The first six days were ROUGH. I felt sick, I had major headaches, MAJOR mood swings, and felt extremely dizzy. I almost caved and started taking it again, but so many people had told me that it “changed my personality” (and not for the better). As soon as I pushed through the first week, everything got better and FAST! I am SO MOTIVATED for positive changes in my life! I quit my job Friday, all because my brain has healed so much from the sobriety and because I’m no longer in a haze. I’m not scared about the future; I have my full trust in God.I know that depression is a serious issue, and some people are more prone to it and do need to be on medication indefinitely; however, if you’re like me, and never had any issues with depression before a major life trauma happened, I want to encourage you to GET OFF YOUR MEDICATION! I can’t imagine if I had stayed on it...I feel like a brand new woman! My coworkers sure are glad, they keep saying, “Tara is finally back!!!” I had no idea it had turned me into someone else. That’s scary.😳 #day164 #sobrietyisthenewdrunk #zoloft #zoloftwithdrawal #antidepressants

Rage is a bad advisor but the rush of it through your veins is undescribable. 
For my children the fangs and claws come out and I will tear through anything and anyone in my path.

I am tired of my daughter being #bullied. I am tired of the broken school system. Safer schools? Biggest lie ever.

I teach my children to not start fights and of they see someone getting bullied to #speakup. At this point #idgaf if my child is suspended because she defended herself. I mean the bullies are being excused because they have "anger issues." To that I say #fuckyou.

Bitch my kid has survived #bullying by the skin of her teeth. Not only does she have #autism on the #aspergerssyndrome spectrum but I need to have her on #antidepressants #anxietymedication and a #sleepingaid. I will not let this go.

My internal story said “if you ask for help you’ll be healed...but you’ll be stronger and more admirable and you’ll REALLY be a strong person if you do without.” There’s this narrative in our wellness focused culture these days that if you only run, yoga, diet, clean or meditate hard enough you should be able to overcome anything. And these activities DO help many people.

It doesn’t mean they work for everyone. And if they don’t work, it doesn’t mean you are a broken or unworthy person.

It took me three years to reduce my binge eating and purging to about 4 times a week - on my own, little therapy, going at it solo with sheer force and willpower.

I grew up in a family and culture around me that misunderstood mental illness and inadvertently made it seem shameful and “problematic” and just “whining, not trying hard enough, and selfishness”. In 2017 I decided to try Prozac, and got into a weekly cadence with counseling. I asked for help. Within 12 months my behaviors were reduced to 1/2 times a week. Since 2019 began I’ve been binge and purge free with only one relapse.

It was terrifying and felt shameful to say I had to take a medication. To deny social plans for regular therapy.  It felt scary telling my new boyfriend that I took an antidepressant - and the antidepressant HELPED me - because it felt like I was saying I couldn’t help myself.

I didn’t know how significantly letting go of that shame narrative and reaching out, being brave, would increase my rate of recovery. If you’re asking and open to help, you’ll get it.

And guess what, it fucking HELPS.

No specific action you take will change the amount of inherent worth you have. Ask for the things you need, be brave, and see how it feels to receive help.

Believe it or not, help helps.

This summer
Has been dry and humid
With no room for growth
Or bloom

So bring forth the winter
Bury me in snow
Heap me with blankets
And nestle in warm
Hidden from the elements

It'll do my soul good
To have fresh, cold air
Whistle through my bone marrow
Instead of this warm, sluggish fog,
That has settled over the limbs
During these stifling summer days

I'm sad to think that summer
Doesn't hold happiness for me
Anymore

The winter will bring its bleak and crisp mornings,
The stormy days,
The darker, enveloping evenings,
The wrapped and heavy nights

And then maybe
I can start to heal
In that soft, quiet darkness ❄

TW: Antidepressants, depression

I wrote this short thing at the end of August last year//I'd just started antidepressants//it was hot and I had a five day headache//and all I wanted was it to be winter//so I could hibernate underneath a blanket of snow//hopefully one that would rid me of that incessant dull thud in my brain and the feeling like the blood was congealed sludge moving slowly through my body//we're better//not great//just better than we were ✨

Goddamn kids, we'd better get through this 🤞

Haven’t posted in a while as haven’t been in the best place! Accepting the fact I’m back on meds and working on feeling crappy! My motivation for today is someone looked at my arms and didn’t judge me, they simply smiled at me and said you brave girl. I HATE my scars as the remind me of a awful time of my life but yano what she made me see that they are my battle scars and I won that battle. I haven’t self harmed in 6 moths and I’m never doing it again and that’s a promise. #mentalillness #mentalhealthquotes #borderlinepersonality #bpd #bpdmom #bpdawareness #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #eupdlife #eupdrecovery #selfharm #cutting #scars #bpdsupport #bpdmother #borderlinepersonalitydisorderawareness #sad #antidepressants

Did you know that flowers can also enhance your mood like CBD does ? According to the Rutgers researchers, the presence of flowers provides a long-term positive effect on moods. Study participants also reported feeling less depressed, anxious, and agitated after receiving or simply looking at flowers 🌺.

Last year, the number of antidepressant prescriptions dispensed in England exceeded 70 million. While these drugs can play an important role for some patients, the attitude of ‘a pill for every ill’ leads to many people taking medicine that they don’t need and suffering with their side effects. 
In a bid to reduce unnecessary prescriptions, the NHS is starting to roll out effective alternatives to medicine, such as social prescriptions and link workers who give care and advice tailored to the individual. This ambitious programme employs talking therapy to resolve common mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, therefore reducing the need for expensive drugs and their side effects.

In a bid to reduce unnecessary prescriptions, the NHS is starting to roll out effective alternatives to medicine, such as social prescriptions and link workers who give care and advice tailored to the individual. This ambitious programme employs talking therapy to resolve common mental health issues such as depression and anxiety, therefore reducing the need for expensive drugs and their side effects.

Stop and smell the roses 🌹 Being present in the moment. The rose symbolizes honor, faith, beauty, balance, passion, wisdom, intrigue, devotion, sensuality, and timelessness.

In the Tarot the rose is considered a symbol of balance. It expresses promise, new beginnings, and hope!

Rose hips of certain species are extremely high in vitamin C. It is due to this that the hip is often made into jam, or teas. Used as an antidepressant, aphrodisiac, and antibacterial among others. 
Have a beautiful and blessed Sunday y'all!

I suffered for years with anxiety, which manifested in addictive behaviours, insomnia and various breakdowns over the years. I couldn’t cope speaking in front of others, and would hide in bathrooms during team meetings.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I managed to stay afloat by changing external factors, like jobs and cities. But those strategies failed me in pregnancy, where my anxiety soared to frightening new levels. ⁣I remember having alarming thoughts and going to the hospital where I was due to give birth, but they had only one psychiatrist on staff, and she was on holiday. Central London’s biggest hospital, with no support for mental health. I couldn’t believe it. So I turned to my GP, but the waitlist for counselling was months long. ⁣And finding  the right therapist was a challenge in and of itself.
⁣
I got worse postpartum, and diagnosed with severe postpartum anxiety, with symptoms of obsessive thoughts about harming my son. I was scared and ashamed, but so relieved to discover how common this was, and that I was not alone. ⁣⁣I really believed I could heal myself. Yoga, nutrition, meditation. I wanted meditation, not medication, thank you. I registered for a meditation workshop, and given a mantra to practice at home. But within days of practicing I was paralysed by a deep sense of dread that I was going to die. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I went to my GP, who said with no hesitation, “you need anti-depressants”. I felt so defeated. I sat on his recommendation for days, lost in a cloud of confusion. I chose to start medicating, and it changed my life. It strengthened my mind, and held space for me to continue healing with other practices — like meditation, yoga and nutrition. But at that stage, my brain needed a neurological shift that I was unable to do myself.⁣
⁣
I can only be grateful for that breakdown that led me from meditation to medication. A divine intervention, I believe. But it was tough to navigate through a medically fragmented culture, and my hope is that soon the mind and body will be seen as one, just as we are all. #mentalhealthawareness

So this week has been a very mixed one. This week I took charge of #mymentalhealth 🙌🏻 I admitted to myself that I needed help. I reminded myself ‘It’s ok not to be ok’. I visited my doctor and explained how I was feeling, I was prescribed #antidepressants to help with my #anxiety and #depression 💖 I am now committed to getting better. So In order to help myself I have taken up the @raceatyourpace 100 mile challenge for June to help me get outdoors and fight my fear and my #socialanxiety
💖💖💖
#mentalhealthawarenessweek couldn’t have come at a better time for me. I am now dedicating my time to breaking the stigma that surrounds #mentalhealth ... there is nothing to be ashamed of when admitting you need help. The help and support I have received from some fantastic people this past week has helped me so much. I’ve tagged them to this picture as a way of saying thank you.

Top #antidepressants posts

Okay phew, I solved the problem, now we can stop having the debate about wether or not meds are good or bad lol. No but, let’s stop trying to convince other people our way is the right way. Hehe. .
.
💊Meds (in conjunction with a lot of other tools) work for me and I am grateful for that, they don’t work for everyone tho and that is legit.💊
.
FYI I am on team Wellbutrin300mg after a decade of trial and error with Zolofts and Citaloprams and Effexors and other less legal things. Maybe one day I won’t “need” meds anymore, but I also don’t really see the point in thinking about that, but boy do some people like to preach that as the end goal. 🤙

Been taking this blue pill daily for about 13 years now. When I first was diagnosed with anxiety and depression following the birth of my first child, I prayed hard for a miracle that God would take it away. He didn’t but he provided a way out for me. This medication is a gift to me from God. It brought me back to myself. Sometimes our miracles come in a different way than we would like. If you are in the think of it, keep going. #antidepressants #depressionhelp #postpartumdepression #iam1in5 #momlife #postpartumanxiety

let’s talk about medicating mental illness, shall we? • as some of you know, i have been struggling/recovering from mental illness for quite a few years now. for over a year, i have been taking prescription pills to help with my mental health. this was a difficult decision to make, as it was a controversial topic in the family. i decided to start taking them as a temporary fix, but ended up staying on them for longer than planned (and i don’t regret it!). i’ve taken anti-anxiety meds, anti-depressants, and anti-psychotics. it took me so long to find the right meds, but once i did, i’ve stuck to them for a long time. that white pill up there? that’s an anti-anxiety med. it helps calm my brain so i can sleep, as well as helping me with my anxiety. the three pink ones are anti-psychotics — and no, taking these doesn’t mean i’m crazy. i’ve always had a vivid imagination, but it started taking over my life. these meds have helped me differentiate between what fears and feelings were real, and what ones weren’t. • i’m posting this in the hopes to let people know that medicating mental illness isn’t always a bad thing. sometimes, that’s what a person needs, and we, as their friends and loved ones, should support that. let’s end the stigma on mental illness medication, shall we? if you are on medication, or have anything to add to the discussion, let me know in the comments below. let’s get a conversation going!

"It's all in your head". It's true, my depression IS all in my head. Problem is though, that's not the only place it's in.

It's in the way I feel my stomach burning from not having eaten in hours but still being unable to eat.

It's in the way my shoulders slump over because I constantly feel like I'm carrying a load of concrete everywhere I go.

But worse than anything, it's in the way my lungs refuse to take enough air in, how it hurts to take deep breaths because my ribs refuse to make room and how I've become painfully accustomed to shallow breaths.

But not anymore.

One week on antidepressants and for the first time in twenty odd years, I'm breathing.

And I'm never going to stop.

Remember, they are NOT "anti-depressants", they are SYNTHETIC MIND ALTERING CHEMICALS that are marketed to consumers as "anti-depressants"🤫💯. The anti-depressant effect is JUST ONE of several effects the chemical has on the body. The rest they refer to as "side effects" as if they don't matter🙄. Don't buy into the marketing ploy. The pharmaceutical industry was built for profit, NOT people💯... ⁣⠀
