Good techniques when having a panic attack…

I think I’ve reblogged this before, but it always helps

tell yourself you’re hot. tell yourself you’re amazing. tell yourself you’re untouchably, radiantly attractive. do it every day, even if it feels like you’re lying to yourself. insist to the mirror that you’re the cutest thing its ever reflected. if you do it enough eventually it wont feel like lying anymore, it’ll be automatic, and you’ll recognize yourself as the incredible babe you really are.

Eat because YOU DESERVE IT. You are a lovely human being, you are part of this world as much as stars, trees or animals are part of it, and being part of this world entitles us to be healthy and happy. EVERYONE DESERVES TO EAT, including you.
So please, eat.

If you relapsed today IT’S OKAY. Everyone slips and everyone struggles with the recovery process. You are not a failure, weak, or stupid for relapsing. Do not give up on recovery because you slipped up. You can do this.

The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.

Exactly. Which is why I’ll reblog this one.

i feel like im using my mental illness as an excuse to not do work. like i feel like maybe i don't actually have depression or anxiety, i'm just lazy and unproductive and irresponsible
mentalillnessmouse mentalillnessmouse Said:

Hi Anon,

What you’re feeling is quite common and comes from the stigma that mental illness still carries. People are told that “it’s not that bad,” which only spawns guilt and self-loathing. But those people are wrong. Depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bipolar, borderline, etc. are all real illnesses that have been studied and diagnosed for decades. They have real weight and real consequence in people’s live. Mental illness can make day-to-day activities difficult at best and impossible at worst. What’s important is allowing yourself to have your illness(es) and your struggles, and then do something about it. Getting a proper diagnosis, medication, and therapy can get you on the right track to feeling like yourself again. It’s not going to get better over night—or even over months—but the more time you take to take care of yourself, the better you will feel. You are not lazy, unproductive, or irresponsible. You are suffering from a very real, very detrimental illness. You are important. Your feelings, thoughts, and desires are real and valid.

Best,

Lena

TW: ED, Eating disorder, Anorexia

Hi Anon,

One of the biggest struggles of the internet is seeing a friend or even a stranger struggled with illnesses and not being able to help directly. Depending on how well you know them or how comfortable you feel with approaching them, drop a message in their inbox. Give them some words of encouragement and remind them that you are there if they need to talk. If these distressing posts become too much for you, either unfollow them or download xkit or tumblr savior to block their triggering posts. You have to remember that as much as you may want to help, they might not yet be ready to look for help yet. This is something they ultimately have to figure out for themselves.

Best,

Lena

i was diagnosed bipolar 2 years ago but my new psychiatrist told me he thinks i'm just borderline and now i'm left wondering how the heck i got misdiagnosed?? is this normal? i took medication for the bipolar disorder for TWO FREAKIN YEARS, isn't that bad for my body/brain? this i sbullshit
mentalillnessmouse mentalillnessmouse Said:

As terrible as it is, misdiagnosis is really common- especially in personality and mood disorders. I’m sorry that this happened, but you are lucky in that a lot of times the drugs for borderline and the drugs for bipolar are very similar. Obviously every doctor is different, but you might’ve been taking very similar things. Furthermore, despite those two years of misdiagnosis, you know have a lifetime of having the right one. So maybe try to take comfort in that.

All the best

Dear Mom/Dad

I’m writing to you because I feel I need to open up with you, and its very difficult to do this face to face. I love you, but I’m going through some really hard times right now and I need your support. Please just listen to what I have to say.

Lately, you may have been worried…

This may be helpful to anyone who needs to tell someone something difficult. Tw for mentions of self harm

In response to the anon who asked about veganism being a sort of eating disorder, a type of disordered eating called orthorexia is becoming more recognized. Individuals with orthorexia place such high emphasis on strictly clean/healthy eating that it becomes harmful. Essentially, they take healthiness to an unhealthy extreme. I was/am vegetarian and have been for years and I realized that becoming so was to aid my ED. So you're very right about circumstances and motives as they relate to EDs.

Thanks for your input!  It really is all about the mindset behind behaviors.
