Resting yesterday worked out well for today; I was able to see a movie and go out for lunch with my hubby and the kids for Father’s Day, without getting wiped out! “The Incredibles 2” was fun and enjoyable and we didn’t have a particularly long wait at the resturant, which was pretty impressive for a very popular Father’s Day location.  I wore one of my jersey knit dresses that looks nice, but is soft and comfortable, my usual boots with long socks, and actually put on earrings and a headband (I didn’t manage make-up, but maybe next time).
I had come to dread going to the movies, because sitting in those seats for two or more hours was so painful, and I would pay for it later as well, but it was really hard to stay home because my whole family (both immediate and extended) are storytellers at heart and LOVE going to the movies.  Going out to a movie has been the standard activity for nearly every annual holiday for two decades (literally, every Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, President’s Day, New Year’s Day, and most birthdays, plus the occasional Christmas or Christmas Eve, for the past twenty-plus years). However, last year our local movie theatre did an extensive remodel and installed reclining seats with foot rests.  Wearing something comfortable and bringing a sweater for temperature control plus the new seats equals a pretty comfy spoonie!😊🍿🎬
I hope anyone else doing Father’s Day today enjoyed themselves, pain-free and with plenty of spoons.🥄💜

Not my usual bright and shiny Instagram post—bear with me. 🙂 I go through major reverse seasonal affective disorder every summer. You know how some people struggle with bouts of depression in the winter? This is literally the exact opposite. I love when it gets dark early and the weather becomes mild and I’m on a more consistent schedule, but between heat, overexposure to sunlight and a major shift in routine, summer throws that all out the window and subdues parts of the brain that create happy hormones. While regular SAD sufferers often go into ‘hibernation mode’ (overeating, oversleeping, disassociating), summer SAD causes manic restlessness, sleep deprivation, and frequent nausea. In short? It sucks. It’s difficult to talk about (especially when you don’t want to be that person who hates on summer), let alone how taboo depression/anxiety already are. Here’s the thing though: It doesn’t make me weird. And doesn’t make you weird either. Today was a hard day. I could barely get out of bed, and spent most of it trying to stay inside and sleep. I cried a lot. But you know what happened? I forced myself out the door and went to a new coffee shop. I went to the store and then got gas in my car and reminded myself that my spirit is braver than my brain tells me it is. So yeah. None of this is comfortable to share, but I feel like it’s important that I should. Because nobody should ever feel like they are alone or a freak or insignificant because they have something they’re dealing with. We all do. And THAT IS OKAY. None of us are perfect, but we all have a hell of a lot of life to fight for.

Du dum, da dum da dum da dum... Life's a piece of 😂

Good evening all. How are you?

I've struggled with anxiety terribly today.
However, looking on the bright side of life, I prefer being anxious than depressed. I've said this before, for me anyway, I am just a highly strung versions of myself when I'm anxious and somewhere inside I can still talk to the rational me. When I'm depressed I cannot!
I started thinking about all the reasons I prefer being anxious over depressed.... So looking on the bright side of life, is there anything about your mental' illness' that you like?
I like the fact that because I can't sit still I get a lot done. When I'm depressed my self care is awful and my house is a shite hole. I'm lazy and eat nothing but crap. Today I cleaned the kitchen, washed the carpet, took the covers off the sofa and washed them, did 2 loads of clothes washing and despite eating lots of rubbish on top, I did actually cook 2 healthy meals today for lunch and dinner. To top it off I also spent hour and half in the gym. Today is the first day in ages I've sat down to a cup of tea in a clean house! (even the plants have been watered lol). I'm now going to relax and watch the football :) I do love the world Cup! (BTW did anybody watch #germany v #mexico? ;) good game!

Have a lovely evening

Love and hugs ❤️ 🤗
Laura

- The Sun -

1) Find a sunny spot *
2) Allow the sun to touch exposed skin for 5-15 minutes **
______________________________________

Aahh yes. That big, bright and burning ball of light. 
Sunshine is one incredible thing. It feeds the plants around us, lightens our days, warms our planet (let's not get into global warming for now) AND gives us that Sweet, sweet vitamin D.
______________________________________

Vitamin D does fantastic things for our bodies. It maintains the health of our bones; reduces inflammatory proteins in our guts and supports the general health of our immune, brain and nervous system. Lower levels of vitamin D have been noted with certain mental illnesses and mood disorders.
______________________________________

It is recommended to get 5-15 minutes of sun on exposed skin, as often as a few times a week, to get the ideal dose of the vitamin (just don't forget sunscreen if you're out for longer than 15 minutes).
______________________________________

However, it isn't always possible to get sun exposure. You might live in a Northern climate that doesn't see much sunshine. Or perhaps you have a condition that makes sun exposure dangerous for you, like allergies or taking certain medications. 
Thankfully there are many ways to experience the benefits of the sun / to get vitamin D from other sources. 
_____________________________________________________________ *If you don't get much sun where you live or can't be exposed to it for medical reasons, try using a sun lamp. The light-therapy is proven to help manage depression and anxiety. 
__________ __________ __________ __________ __________________ **If you have access to sun and require limited exposure, get creative with filters! No, not instagram filters, but perhaps a sheer curtain, a light parasol or a spot where the sun can trickle through the leaves of trees. -
- - -
- - - 
Note: Always talk to your doctor about the best/safest ways to get vitamin D into your body. Supplements are great and best taken with foods that help absorption (ie. milk due to the calcium content).

Sunday morning thoughts:
•
I am so happy that I made this Instagram account when I did. It all (re)started in April of 2017,
with a want to begin another "whack" at my lifelong health and fitness journey.
Last summer I went full force with BBG, daily running, lifting and intense HIIT styled cardio at Unite Fitness, kettlebells classes on the weekends, drinking Shakeology every day, and eating balanced but also wicked clean.
I was a health and exercise machine, with balance between work and play, which transformed me into the happiest, healthiest, most energized version of myself.
My archive goes to show that healthy eating and regular  exercise (especially with weights) can legitimately change your life.
Then my junior year of college hit.
To be honest, I was stressed from Day 1.
Every month the stress accumulated, until it hit a point in the spring where it started affecting me mentally and physically.
Not allowing myself to rest over winter break, and not having a spring break (from traveling to Guatemala) also didn't help.
And I was too stressed and busy to seek help.
This ruined the end of my spring semester for me, including my 21st birthday.
I will never forget going to bed at 7pm because I couldn't mentally or physically handle the day anymore.
It's no secret that I stopped practicing what I preached.
I not only de-prioritized myself and all of my self-care habits, but de-HUMANIZED myself.
I have successfully gone through 10 months of allowing others to tell me who I am, who I should be, and what is "best" for me.
So many months of putting myself on the backburner in an attempt to please others and not let them down.
But what is a life where you have
the gift of photography,
the talent of singing and playing piano,
a desire to exercise to be strong inside and out,
the blessing of beautiful friends and family...
And no drive or energy to do... any of it anymore?
The life I'm living.
But that's not the life I want to live.
That is not what your 20's should be!
I am ready to gain myself back.
Are you with me?

I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder. I'm over it already and it has only just begun. 
I'm going to do a reset. 10 weeks (omg that seems like such a long time, dear lord i hope i can last at least half way). @chefpeteevans has released his Paleo Way program for free. I signed up. The meal plans and shopping lists are all thought of already. All i need to do is cook it. It's a great opportunity to try new things. Like this. I don't normally cook omelets but the depth of flavour in this because of the mushies, herbs and garlic was spot on. My little one said it was nice because it made her feel warm inside.

Today’s got to be a down day, whether I like it or not, so I’m going to embrace it, and try to give my body what it needs without begrudging the need.  I have my pain meds, new book, a hot cocoa, and a furry buddy to keep me company.  I am hoping that by leaning into the flare, I can get though it with less stress, maybe less pain, and maybe even less time.🤞 I’ve always pushed myself hard, all my life, and one of the biggest challenges I am working on as a spoonie is how *not* to push myself.  When I woke up this morning feeling pain in nearly every fiber of my being I knew today wasn’t going to go as planned.  And just recognizing that was a big win for me.  Actually accepting it and choosing to do what I need to do today instead—rest and take care of myself properly—is an even bigger win.

Good morning beautiful people.
How are you? The weekend is here at last. Im working today but off on sun and Mon so today is essentially my friday and it's not too bad, I like this job.

I had a fairly nice day yesterday, I always enjoy my Friday job which is why I was so sad to hand in my notice. My manager said they would like me to stay and even offered me more money if I don't leave. This should be a good thing but its now stressing me out because I've already accepted another job, so either way I feel like I let somebody down 😔

I'm still really stressed about finances, another one of my jobs has been really quiet and not really paying much. It's my little boys birthday next month so I want to make sure he has a nice day and gets some presents (I know its not all about presents but he's 4 and understands now so want him to have some bits to open). I'm not sure if pouring my heart out here is helping me by sharing and dealing with it or just making me dwell in it and feel sorry for myself 😂 I do know it will get better, it just needs to hurry up! Lol

Have a lovely weekend. Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to my babble!

Love and hugs ❤️ 🤗
Laura

Good morning beautiful people. How are you? The weekend is here at last. Im working today but off on sun and Mon so today is essentially my friday and it's not too bad, I like this job. I had a fairly nice day yesterday, I always enjoy my Friday job which is why I was so sad to hand in my notice. My manager said they would like me to stay and even offered me more money if I don't leave. This should be a good thing but its now stressing me out because I've already accepted another job, so either way I feel like I let somebody down I'm still really stressed about finances, another one of my jobs has been really quiet and not really paying much. It's my little boys birthday next month so I want to make sure he has a nice day and gets some presents (I know its not all about presents but he's 4 and understands now so want him to have some bits to open). I'm not sure if pouring my heart out here is helping me by sharing and dealing with it or just making me dwell in it and feel sorry for myself I do know it will get better, it just needs to hurry up! Lol Have a lovely weekend. Thank you for your support and thank you for listening to my babble!

It’s been a ginger ale and plain rice kind of day.  Not sure why, just seriously hoping it’s a random nauseous day and not the beginning of coming down with a flu or similar stomach complaint.

Summer
▫️
For a lot of people it means fun times are about to begin. It means late nights with no alarm clock the next day. Camping, BBQS, and water fun. Beach trips and hikes to locations unknown. For a lot of people it means sun and finally not living in darkness anymore. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Seasonal affective disorder or what most know it as, seasonal depression effects more then 3 million people per year. It isn’t something that can be cured as it’s a part of who they are. However, if you can learn to dance in the rain, then it will make waiting for the sunshine a whole lot easier. ▫️
“A single sunbeam is enough to drive away any shadows.” ~St. Francis of Assisi

Good morning all ❤️
How are you? How have you been?
I'm still quite low and stressy. I'm hoping that the depression is now starting to ease slightly. I still feel rubbish but I wasn't bothered by intrusive thoughts so much yesterday. The anxiety is still pretty high, but I prefer dealing with that than the depression (personally). I feel like I'm not me when I'm depressed. When I'm anxious I'm just a rediculously highly strung version of me lol

I'm off to work today. This is the job I am leaving soon. I told them that I would stay if they want me to but on a different day and if they give me the bloody pay rise they agreed to! So I'm anxious about seeing them.

Before I go I wanted to share with you a technique that @mrgarycoxe shared via a comment on one of my posts. I thought it was so Lovely and would imagine really effective if you can implement it!
The idea is at the end of a day, think of something that made you happy, the best bit of the day (however small) and write it down. Then leave it on the floor next to the bed, so that when you wake and get up, it is the first thing you see. ❤️ How lovely is that! Join me in giving it a try.

I'm. Off to get ready now. Have a lovely day and a lovely weekend. In it together! Thank you again for your support.
Love and hugs ❤️ 🤗
Laura

Taking time to rest has always been hard for me—way before kids, before health questions, before fibro, it was always a battle with myself to take downtime for myself.  Somehow I’m finding it even harder now, I think because I have so little functional time that all I do when “resting” is think about what I could/should/would be doing if I *wasn’t* resting.  It’s a mindset I need to challenge, and change.  I doubt the rest is helpful to my body when my mind won’t also rest.
Today I spent some time at a friend’s house, resting in the hammock swing in her garden, and realized afterward that both my mind and body had actually relaxed.  I didn’t think about everything else I could/should/would’ve been doing, I just *was.* This tells me I need try spending more of my down time outdoors.

3 for 3 healthy lunches. This week I tackled sugar. No cookies or cake or any  processed desserts. I've never been a big dessert person but it's amazing how you notice the change when you make the effort not to have any.

If you guys have been following me for a while you know that I have SAD aka #seasonalaffectivedisorder aka #seasonaldepression that is a true clinical form of depression that is triggered by the change in weather
.
Scientist do study #SAD and it's believed to be due to lack of sunlight to the eyes able to stimulate seratonin production
.
I always thought that if my vit D levels were fine that there is no way light exposure to my eyes would be affecting my brain
.
I caved this winter. My second time experiencing SAD and got a #lighttherapy light that I think saved my life. Saved my relationship and saved me as a person
.
Vitamin D is wicked important and we need it, but out bodies are so incredible and have been intined to this earth before we were multicellular beings. So, what I want to say is...GET THE FUCK OUTSIDE and expose your eyeballs and skin to some natural light. It could make all the difference in your mood
.
My everything is better in the summer. My mood, skin, sex, appetite, motivation, thinking. Ideas, oppertunities .

Since my onset, my memory has really been impacted. I use to pride myself in having recall of people’s names when I attended conferences. I have 4 diplomas, 3 A’s 1 A+ with distinction but those were acquired before my bipolar stole my memory. I cant blame it all on the disorder as I was desperate to alleviate my depression and had ECT, that which further gave me issues. I could handle the short term memory loss; names, conversation, small details, but it’s the long term memory that really hurts. I’m slowly forgetting chunks of my life. Major events. Memories slowly being sucked away from me. It’s embarrassing to me as I keep having to say “I don’t remember”. Has your mental illness impacted your memory? How do you cope on a mental level of having memories stolen?? .

So last weekend a complete stranger approached me and my partner when we were all dressed up for our friends wedding and told me
- "wow you've got really broad shoulders, like broader than mine and that's saying something" 
I was a bit taken a back and not wanting to be as rude as him I did not say - "well maybe get into a gym then and sort out your skinny ass" I simply thought it ten minutes later... • I don't particularly think I'm very big, anywhere. And as an ex butterfly swimmer I know that I'm smaller than most, and was often told that I had a really tiny frame for my speciality. •I dont focus train on any specific area, other than my endorphins. I.e; if it feels good do more of it. • which often means I do a HIIT workout or swim for an hour whatever it takes that day to keep my mind in the right places. • And since I take such a direct approach to keeping my mental health ticking over I don't appreciate any back handed compliments from strangers or anyone else for that matter. • On the flip side to this I also hate when people say things like "I wish I had your legs" - I can't give them to you and your negative body image makes me feel bad so please stop. ●And finally here's a picture of my broad shoulders because they're mine and big or small they act as a great platform to keep my head in place

The sun is shining! ☀️✨
The energy of the sun has set my inner glow alight today. Hooray! 
Regular customers and those of you that know me well know that I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder, which means those grey, drizzly, stormy days put me in a grey, drizzly and stormy mood. It’s definitely not a head or heart space that I like spending too much time, so after what feels like never ending days of rain for me, it is so uplifting to see the light come shining through 💫 
Sending love, light, strength, courage and warmth to you all 💛🧡❤️

June gloom. Junuary. Call it what you want but this weather has me feeling the affects of seasonal affective disorder all over again. Anyone else fall into a slump when the weather goes blah? I’m hoping this weekends sunshine gets me back into gear because the next couple of weeks are crazy busy!👶🏼🐶

I think the thing I struggle with the most in this world of chronic illness and spoon limits is the unpredictability.  We all know how hard it is to make plans, not knowing if our health we let us keep them, and having to have contingency plans for our contingency plans is just another layer of planning that exhausts us in and of itself.  The real rub though, for me at least, is doing everything “right” and still not being able to count on my body to cooperate.
Yesterday I took care of myself.  Spent time with a friend who is a spoon giver (versus a spoon taker). Stayed hydrated. Rested. Spent some time on a hobby that I enjoy and that relaxes me. Took all my meds on time. Got a good night’s sleep (for me). And yet, this morning, I woke up with those pre-flare warning signs... Shooting pains in my arms and legs. Weird spacey inability to remember the right words.  Feeling super weak and listless.  I picked my daughter up from school and dropped the car payment off, and I’m done.  Toasted.  I can tell there is no way I can push through anything else today, even if that wasn’t a bad idea, which we all know it is.  Pre-diagnosis I would have knocked back some caffeine and pushed through what I had already planned for today. I would have thought that was an acceptable short-term solution because once the doctor figured out what was wrong and we fixed it, I wouldn’t have do that kind of thing anymore.  But since it turns out there is no fix, that this is a chronic condition that will simply get worse if I don’t slow down, I can’t do the “short-term solutions” anymore.  I have to think long-term about everything.  The ultimate Catch-22 for someone who can’t plan on anything going according to plan...

I think the thing I struggle with the most in this world of chronic illness and spoon limits is the unpredictability. We all know how hard it is to make plans, not knowing if our health we let us keep them, and having to have contingency plans for our contingency plans is just another layer of planning that exhausts us in and of itself. The real rub though, for me at least, is doing everything “right” and still not being able to count on my body to cooperate. Yesterday I took care of myself. Spent time with a friend who is a spoon giver (versus a spoon taker). Stayed hydrated. Rested. Spent some time on a hobby that I enjoy and that relaxes me. Took all my meds on time. Got a good night’s sleep (for me). And yet, this morning, I woke up with those pre-flare warning signs... Shooting pains in my arms and legs. Weird spacey inability to remember the right words. Feeling super weak and listless. I picked my daughter up from school and dropped the car payment off, and I’m done. Toasted. I can tell there is no way I can push through anything else today, even if that wasn’t a bad idea, which we all know it is. Pre-diagnosis I would have knocked back some caffeine and pushed through what I had already planned for today. I would have thought that was an acceptable short-term solution because once the doctor figured out what was wrong and we fixed it, I wouldn’t have do that kind of thing anymore.

Good evening all.
I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for all of your messages of concern ❤️ I have been feeling very low and very anxious recently which is why I have not been around. I've been OK but have not felt upto much and definately not up to facing my feelings head on buy writing about them 😬 (counter productive!)
I've been struggling with very intrusive thoughts. They have been torturing me and I've struggled to push them out.
However, I am trying. I am fighting them.

I have upped my medication again but all it seems to be doing is making me very tired 😴

I've found playing board games with the kids cheers me up (well hungry hippos anyway lol) and watching @officialrhoch (my guilty pleasure) and have another appointment in a week or so with my doctor.

Thank you all again so much ❤️ please bear with me while I try to get over the peak of this 'blip'

I'm going to try breaking my worries down tonight and dealing with them head on 👍

Love and hugs to all ❤️ 🤗 #inittogether

I hate how affected by the seasons I am. Gray days like today bring on a physical depression that is nearly impossible to shake. I do my best to stay positive, taking this time to rest and reflect, knowing that sunny summer days are practically here ... even though my body is ever insistent that everything is futile and I should just carb load and go to sleep. 😑

Don't forget to get a little sunlight each day. You need it in order to make vitamin D and #serotonin. The research of John Ott shows many benefits to sunlight, especially getting it directly into your eyes. I make it a practice not to wear sunglasses for this reason. When people started wearing sunglasses in the 1980s (and getting vaccines and taking meds and eating processed food), health started to decline. Returning to natural living goes a long way to heal mood disorders without pharmaceuticals. .

MØRK - Una lampada con 24 LED RGB che rappresentano le ore di buio nei paesi nordici in cui è presente la notte polare. Emette una luce azzurra per contrastare gli effetti "Seasonal Affective Disorder" provocato dalla scarsità di luce solare: il numero di LED accesi corrisponde infatti alle ore di buio da compensare con la luce artificiale.

Just a pretty little sunshine yellow planter box. 
The trees in our yard are all deciduous and the garden beds are a work in progress so the yard gets a bit dull in winter. These bright planter boxes decorated with old cast iron fretwork really liven the place up.

If you had asked me this morning how I was feeling I would’ve answered uninspired and unmotivated. What a difference it makes to put your feet in the sea, sand between your toes and sun on your skin. Seasonal Affective Disorder is real and messing with my mind!

Following Tony's advice of not "letting your life conditions affect your life" after #upw2018london , I'm happy to report that today is a sunny day on the French Riviera, and after all the down pours we had, well, it feels sooooo damn GOOD :)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm a recovering *seasonal affective disorder* patient and sunshine feeds my soul ;)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Not many people know this about me, but I felt the need to open up about this, as a teenager I attempted suicide and failed. This is one failure I'm proud of. I've never written about it before but with everything that has happened in the media, I wanted to speak up about it. I've learned better coping mechanisms since then. Some times I still get overwhelmed and stressed, but I get thru it with help, help from medication, from family, from friends. Suicide doesn't get rid of your pain, it just passes it on to someone else, like your family and friends.

if you’ve never given your yoni a sun bath, well i don’t want to be too dramatic but YOU HAVEN’T FELT TRUE BLISS. no, I’m kidding, of course you have. but still it is amazing and holy and an utter blessing to your body. this morning while my husband was working at the kitchen table I was spread eagle on the kitchen floor, and I described it to him as a vaginal happy lamp! because vaginas get S.A.D. too.

FYI the many benefits of #yonisunning include easing pelvic pain, increasing circulation, curing (yes, even chronic) yeast infections, balancing over-dryness, dissolving scar tissue, increasing libido, and the list goes on... no, I’m not a licensed medical professional but literally every single one of those examples are from my own vaginal experience!

I made a quick journal for my day to day accomplishments.  I decided I needed this for when I wake up and find myself weeks into a depressive period and am frustrated to find that looking back I don't remember doing anything. 
I couldn't resist adding Jjong's photo in there. It fit well with the theme and he always inspires me to be productive ;; .

This morning I spent some time with this gorgeous and amazing human, my Mama BFF.❤️ We’ve been friends since we met at our girls’ school when they were so little, and were friends in an instant.  We’ve been there for each other through kid stuff, school stuff, both physical and mental health stuff, and no matter where I am at—physically, mentally, emotionally—spending time with her always helps rejuvenate me.  I always come away from our time spent together feeling better than I did before.  I am so very fortunate to have a friend like her, and strongly recommend hanging on to and making time for friends like her if you have one your own life.  The friends that understand, care about you, and support you, even at your hardest times, will definitely be there for you in the easy ones, and they are the ones worth the time, energy, and space in your life investment.❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
