Mental illness is not pretty. It creeps up on you when you least expect it. For me I haven't had a real panic attack in almost six months. So imagine my surprise when I wake up at 2:30 this morning to a full on panic attack. I'm talking shaking, heart pounding, can't breathe, chest hurts, gonna throw up oh god someone help me I'm dying! I wouldn't normally share my self in this moment but given everything that is going on i think it's important to give a face to even the most invisible of illnesses. I am lucky enough to have a wonderful husband who some how knows when I'm panicking even in the middle of the night. He takes my hand and reminds me, it will pass. This will go away. I'm right here, just breathe. It's a tremendous help to have someone who grounds me in the now and doesn't ever mock me or make me feel stupid. I've been on medication now for about a year and a half. It has helped me so much. Before I would have panic attacks much more frequently, im talking like...one every week at least. Don't ever be afraid to ask for help! Don't ever be afraid to admit something is wrong! It doesn't make you weak! Don't ever let anyone silence you or make you feel less than! #mentalhealth #mentalillness #wearestrong
Sooo I got bored and slightly inspired by the snow outside...I decided to give silver eyeshadow another shot. Anyone who knew me in middle school knows I had an unhealthy obsession with this god awful light silver glitter eye shadow and purple lipstick. So I decided to see if I could work it into a grown up makeup look, and I think it worked out pretty well!! #makeup #silvereyeshadow #thisiswhatboredomlookslike
My absolute best friend in the world sent this to me tonight and very nearly made me cry. We all need our people
Apparently you might get pregnant #graffiti
