❇️ Det kommer så og si hver dag kommentarer eller DM om hvor mye eg er gått ned. Og eg ser en god del deler vektnedgangen sin her også. (hurra for dere modige). ♥️
Eg blir ennå litt satt ut når eg møter kjente som kommenterer kor lite ansiktet mitt er blitt og at eg ser bedre ut 🙏 Eg var 124 kg.. Og levd på lavkarbo en stund før eg begynte på keto. Når eg begynte var eg 115 kg ish. Idag er eg 105❇️🤘 men, eg sku ønske at eg heller fekk spørsmålet om korleis eg føler meg? For vekten, e ikke den eneste grunnen for eg gjekk all inn. Eg har RA, en en kronisk og progressiv betennelses-sykdom. Som gjer eg har dårlig immunforsvar, ekstremt vondt nåken daga, og noen dager heilt sengeliggende. Av og til er hånden og fingrene mine så store at eg ikke kan gripe noe. Eg har heldigvis venner so bære ting for meg dei dagene eg trenge det ♥️🙏 men eg har også PTSD, etter ei oppvekst med seksuelleovergrep, vold og rus. Etter eg begynte på keto, så har eg hatt nåken daga der eg er heilt tom for energi sjølvsagt. Alt e ikke heilt flott pga keto. Men eg føler meg so mykje bedre, inni meg. Og følelsene mine går ikke ned i vekt. Heller ikke tankene mine. Dei veier like mye som før. Eg kjem nok ikke til å dele so mykje av tallene og målene mine. For for min del e keto blitt ein del av livstilsendringen min. En liten del av noe stort ♥️🙏❇️ Eg føler meg fantastisk!

Even though my tattoo is not what it used to be and the words are mushed together I will show it proudly! and now that you all know from my 2 lives that I am a domestic abuse survivor even though a few of you already knew, I am posting my domestic abuse tattoo , my bracelet as well as my story on my lives tonight because domestic abuse is the most disgusting "disease " to plague human kind and it NEEDS TO STOP!!! if you want to watch my story about it that's awesome if not that's awesome too as these kinds of stories are not for everyone or the faint of heart. But I WILL NEVER EVER APOLOGIZE EVER FOR PUTTING MY STORY OUT and I will NOT take any domestic abuse awareness posts down...
Did you know in the US alone 3 women are killed each and every day at the hands of their partner that's EVERY DAY!.

We all have our own coping mechanisms. Some are based around how our parent’s dealt with issues and some are self taught. From experience we need to teach our children how to deal with trauma. We can either let them watch how we dealt with it and let them do the same in years to come or we can teach different methods. -

Some choose to bury themselves in alcohol, drugs and medicines. Some choose to run, abandon and walk away from everything that was once of value. The pain is the same on both ends of the spectrum, however what does this teach our children?... that it’s ok?.... it gives them options to choose, because they saw their adults choose them. -

Until we are able to have open lines of communication and talk through our traumas and issues we will always go back to a default setting. Similar to above most people continue in this cycle because it allows them to relive the pain and assure themselves of the choice that was made, was the correct one. -

Communication and openness is the only way to deal with traumas. This is what we have to teach our children. Walking away and diluting your mind doesn’t and will not ever work. - “Mourn what once was and come back even stronger” - .

3-6-9 Breath

Inhale for a count of three, hold for a count of six, exhale for a count of 9.

Why this works
Counting engages the frontal lobe, intentional breathing brings oxygen into your body and to your brain, and the extended exhale helps ensure a complete release of breath (and the carbon dioxide that is stored in our bodies when we hold our breath). You can do this exercise at any time. (Please note: for some people, doing breathwork can cause a panic/fight/flight/freeze response. If you are one of those people, please know and trust yourself and do NOT do this exercise.) /../ Have you seen the Soothe Your Nervous System card deck? Visit: bit.ly/nervoussystemdeck /../

This one truly stays by my side always..it’s 2:30 AM and I’m wide awake.
.
She could easily go to her bed but she won’t, so I sit here and give her “scratchies” and belly rubs. .
Those grey’s that went from face now to her whole body, remind me that everyday with this one is a blessing.
.
My little cuddle bug!

THE CLOWN, THE JOKER, THE ENTERTAINER, THE POSER!
THE MAN BEHIND THE MASK!

Man goes to doctor. Says he's depressed. Life seems harsh, and cruel. Says he feels all alone in threatening world. Doctor says; "Treatment is simple. The great clown - Pagliacci - is in Town. Go see him, that Should pick you up." Man burst into tears. "But doctor...." he says "I am Pagliacci!" Good joke. Everybody laugh, roll on snare drum. Curtains.

Saints vs Aston Villa - 220220

Most probably don't see me as a football fan. I used to be a season ticket holder and travel the country seeing lower league matches with Accrington Stanley being my second club. I haven't been to a match for years so being back at St Mary's Stadium was an emotional experience for me.

I've always been more of a rugby fan but football saved my life. Seriously, it saved me. Saints FC and a football player helped me to carry on during the hardest part of my life. I'll write more in a blog post about it.

Yesterday I was working. All I knew was I taking photos and doing some filming but still having the opportunity was amazing. What I didn't realise was that I'd end up in a press box, seeing the match and then at half time I'd be on the pitch filming the relay race.

It was really a dream come true. Something I never thought I'd get to experience and I cannot put in to words how grateful I am to my amazing colleagues at @solentuniversity and the fantastic staff at @southamptonfc. I am extremely lucky and still so overwhelmed.

The day drained me physically, mentally and emotionally but it was worth every second.

I also got to spend time and catch up with my old CEO from @solentmind.

The whole day brought up some unwanted memories and feelings but was also a reminder of how far I've come in my recovery and how dreams really can come true when you put in the hard work and work towards what you really want. .

I also got to spend time and catch up with my old CEO from @solentmind.

The whole day brought up some unwanted memories and feelings but was also a reminder of how far I've come in my recovery and how dreams really can come true when you put in the hard work and work towards what you really want. .

Saints vs Aston Villa - 220220

Most probably don't see me as a football fan. I used to be a season ticket holder and travel the country seeing lower league matches with Accrington Stanley being my second club. I haven't been to a match for years so being back at St Mary's Stadium was an emotional experience for me.

I've always been more of a rugby fan but football saved my life. Seriously, it saved me. Saints FC and a football player helped me to carry on during the hardest part of my life. I'll write more in a blog post about it.

Yesterday I was working. All I knew was I taking photos and doing some filming but still having the opportunity was amazing. What I didn't realise was that I'd end up in a press box, seeing the match and then at half time I'd be on the pitch filming the relay race.

...5/5 It wasn’t until grad school that someone finally listened. A spiky haired, kind-eyed, fashionable woman I finally relented to and allowed to treat me for bipolar. I was put on a mood stabilizer (lamotragine) and an antipsychotic (olanzipine: known for 2 things- weight gain (which I will also get into on a later post) and speed of symptom relief). Two days later something in me shifted. I was still me, but that wild thing, with sharp teeth and claws in my back, was now a faint whisper. I couldn’t believe it. Something finally made me feel what I can only call ‘normal’. I was softly rocking in a sturdy, relief-laden hammock between mania and
depression. And that is how I got here today. Of course there were things in between happening in my life- university, jobs, boyfriends, ‘life’ things that will come up in other posts but for now let’s leave it here. We’ll get into the details starting next week, but for now let’s leave it here.A thankfully mundane, quiet, ‘here’.

If you look back at my posts on why people act like they do when they are in a dysregulataed state, (hulk mode vs Bruce banner mode) it gives you an understanding why you may do the things you do too. I also explained the importance of you as a parent having to teach your child how to self regulate or the fact they learn their behaviors off you, the apple doesnt fall far from the tree is a saying for a reason. I like these 3 R's their easy to remember, they are explained well, so get to know them, if you want your child to have a better life than you, if you are trying to better yourself, if your trying to break the intergenerational complex trauma and Codependancy of your family, trying to help a partner with a cluster b type personality disorder these will come in handy for you. You may not notice the difference overnight, but after some practice and as you get better at it, there will be noticeable changes, with your child and with yourself. Everyone losses their temper or gets dysregulataed from time to time, its human, so if your trying to implement these and sometimes you slip, thats ok, your human, dont beat yourself up, apologize if need be and try again next time, practice is not to be perfect, its to be better than you were before. #lifecoaching #loveyourself #gym #personaltraining #mentalhealthawareness #geelong #counselling #Boundaries #psychotherapy #lifecoaching #mentalhealth #abuse #survivor #cptsd #ptsd #anxiety #depression #Codependancy #npd #BPD #mensabuse #recovery #healing #innerchild #relationships #disorders #complextrauma #dyresgulation #validation

We can take jokes but not jokes disguised as insults... I can’t count the amount of times my ex would do this to me, insulting shit in that moment and then he would be like “Jesus Christ stop taking it seriously I’m just joking” This was after he had degraded or belittled me in his proclaimed joke! I never knew the devils children existed until I met him.

There are few things more miserable than dating a narcissist who never thinks twice about you. These narcissists will never be generous. They would never act out of kindness unless they know that it would serve their best interests. Everything that they do in life is only motivated by their own selfish desires. They are not the kind of people who would do things out of the pure kindness of their hearts without expecting anything in return. There always has to be something in it for them.

The narcissist most likely will never be accountable, and they will not see what they’ve done to cause any of it, they’ll not even take 50/50. They might offer a false apology, but they will still turn it all around onto what you’ve done. God forbid they ever be accountable for what they put you through. It’s one rule for them but fuck your rule.
One of the narcissist’s greatest horrors is to not be the omnipotent being that their fictitious character needs to imagine itself as.

The huge gap between feeling ‘super-human’ and like a ‘normal-human’ gets closed with a thud, when the narcissist has to do the mundane, everyday things that every responsible adult does.

Things like: turning up on time, keeping your word, paying your bills and taxes, doing the right thing. It’s their way or the highway.
These deeds, unless providing narcissistic supply, are appalling to the narcissist. And if there is pressure enforcing ‘normality’, a terrible ego injury can occur, bringing on a narcissistic rage.

Narcissists use narcissistic rage to control and manipulate you; to make you acquiesce and do what they want, drop your boundaries and hand over your rights and power to them.

They have no morals, integrity or heart like they pretend to have their sense of entitlement is sickening. Don’t try to get closure or what is owed to you from your ex narc they don’t care to do what’s best for you because all along it was about them and what they wanted from YOU. My ex Matt spewed bullshit about I’ll do this or I’ll sort that but he had no intent just discarded and mugged me off. Don’t allow yourself to ever make the mistake of doing anything significant for the narc they are out to simply seek and destroy you then ride off into the sunset not giving a flying fuck about how they have impacted you.

They stay BECAUSE they are selfish. If they are getting attention, admiration, sex, a place to stay or whatever they need as supply, why wouldn't they stay?

Narcissists are lazy. While they get easily bored and are always on the lookout for a fresh piece, they invest a considerable amount of charm and effort into grooming someone they believe will supply their needs.

Once they have that victim under their control, they will satisfy their other desires and needs with whoever triggers their fancy. But unless they find a new supply that is superior to the one they have, they aren't going to end the relationship.

The “discard” phase of a narcissist is not always indicative of them physically leaving their main supply. Sometimes, it just means they have no interest in you other than what they can use you for, so they neglect you emotionally and sexually but stay in the relationship. You basically become roommates at that point, being little more than a glorified maid or babysitter.

If they find someone who is willing and able to give them a better status, you will be unceremoniously discarded. Otherwise, you are stuck with them as long as you will tolerate their abuse.

Psychosomatisch Streß erkrankter sucht nette (junge) Frau zum sich kennenlernen, lieben/lieb haben, füreinander da sein & regelmäßigen Schreiben.
Gern auch für's eventuell mal im echten Leben zusammenkommen oder häufigere Treffen.
.
.
.
Borderlinerin & ich? / Borderline & Nachteile (Ergänzungen vom 4.2.2020):
Ich hatte bei Insta nacheinander schon mit mehreren Borderlinerinnen einen längeren Kontakt. Meist (sehr) nett bis teilweise leider auch mal (sehr) enttäuschend.
Es sind zwar nicht alle Borderlinerinnen gleich, aber wegen teilweise zu großen Enttäuschungen würde ich ab jetzt nur noch eine nehmen, die:
-Den Kontakt nicht zu sehr/oft einschränkt
-Genug auf mich eingeht, nicht schreibfaul ist
-Mehr Selbsteinsicht in ihre Erkrankung & die zwischenmenschlichen Folgen davon hat (schon etwas weiter therapiert wurde usw. Vielleicht schon in Graustufen/Farben statt nur in schwarz weiß lebt/denkt - siehe mein Post "Borderline" (😉) )
-Ihre negativen Gefühle schon besser regulieren/im Zaun halten kann
-Möglichst wenig lügt
-In entsprechenden Situationen schon viel mehr liebt statt haßt
-Meistens erreichbar ist
-Mich auf Dauer u.U. nicht nur als einen von mehreren Partnern auf einmal hat
-Treu & mitfühlend ist
-Und was ich jetzt noch vergessen hab
.
.
Hinweise:
-Fast alle Diagnose bezogene Hashtags sind meine eigenen Diagnosen. Dabei ist zum Glück nicht alles gleich stark ausgeprägt, 🙂.
-Hashtags über Borderline dagegen sind (auch) wegen Partnersuche.

When unprocessed trauma is held in our body it can show up in many places.⁠

Nightmares: people often think of the dream space when they think of trauma because many people experience distressing dreams when they have experienced a trauma they are conscious of, but also when they've experienced a trauma that they aren't currently conscious of. This is a way that our psyches speak to us when we aren't distracted by the events of the day. Keep in mind that dreams aren't literal. If you often have dreams with the same emotional tone, it may be something to become curious about with a therapist. One way to find emotional undertone is to retell the dream to someone in the present tense "I'm walking along....etc" and notice the emotions that come up for you.⁠

Night terrors: children often experience night terrors, and if you google them you'll see that most of the articles that pop up are about children. This is misleading because many people with unprocessed trauma also experience night terrors-- or dreams that cross a barrier into a semi-awake state where their body and nervous system are responding as if what is happening in their dream is happening in real life. These are truly terrifying experiences, but again, something to pay attention to as away that unprocessed trauma can show up, or our psyche's can tell us that there is something there to become curious about. As with dreams, follow the emotional undertone.⁠

Fear in airplanes/elevators/buses/trains: for people that experienced trauma that involved feeling out of control or helpless, locations where they don't have control, can be a place that their unprocessed trauma makes itself known. Again, follow the feeling. If these spaces terrify you another thing to get curious about how that may be connected to your past. ⁠

Gut issues: unprocessed trauma lives in our body, and one place in particular that many people feel it's effects is in their gut. When our nervous systems are in hyperarousal or hypoarousal our gut has difficulty functioning optimally. If past traumas have impacted your nervous system's homeostasis (a common experience) you may experience motility issues. ⁠

♡ Addiction is a traumarespons. It is a way to deal with the overwhelm, stress and intens feelings, emotions and sensations that rage through the body after a traumatic event. We turn to addiction when we want to numb ourselves from everything that we deem too much to handle.
.
In that way addiction is a way to self soothe. Due to not having a regulated nervous system, lacking the (emotional) capacity and tools to deal with and integrate what has happened, being in a disregulating environment and/or lacking proper support and connection leads us to find ways to soothe ourselves...away from the pain, away from the overwhelm, away from the stress and chaos, away from powerlessness, helplessness, uncertainty and unsafety. Alcohol, drugs, s.x, food, gaming etc...they all provide that calming, soothing feeling (for a bit). In some cases because it numbs, in other cases because it provides a (false) sense of control (anorexia, s.xual adventures). But in a way, it soothes.
.
But, what addiction can also be...is self-punishment. This manifests on a deeper level and stems from byproducts of trauma, like shame and guilt. When those 2 become overbearing, when we are unable to face it and feel through it, we can go into full selfdestruction mode. The fact that you are getting drunk until you pass out, snort/shoot up until your teeth fall out, eat until your are obese, restrict your eating so your body shuts down, have unprotected s.x with many people etc...can all have this underlying mechanism of selfdestruction.
.
"This happened to me, and I did this wrong or I should have done something else. I am unworthy/unlovable/disgusting. I am a burden, I am too much and I am too needy". This can be the inner narrative for people who are on their way to selfdestruction (through addiction). The urge to self destruct is an effort to correct deemed 'bad' behaviour, and its an effort to punish, to break oneself. To ravish oneself. To destroy oneself or to be destroyed.
.
And yet, in essence...the urge to selfdestruct is the brain and the heart and the soul screaming for connection, for understanding, for love, for warmth, for forgiveness ♡

But, what addiction can also be...is self-punishment. This manifests on a deeper level and stems from byproducts of trauma, like shame and guilt. When those 2 become overbearing, when we are unable to face it and feel through it, we can go into full selfdestruction mode. The fact that you are getting drunk until you pass out, snort/shoot up until your teeth fall out, eat until your are obese, restrict your eating so your body shuts down, have unprotected s.x with many people etc...can all have this underlying mechanism of selfdestruction.
.
"This happened to me, and I did this wrong or I should have done something else. I am unworthy/unlovable/disgusting. I am a burden, I am too much and I am too needy". This can be the inner narrative for people who are on their way to selfdestruction (through addiction). The urge to self destruct is an effort to correct deemed 'bad' behaviour, and its an effort to punish, to break oneself. To ravish oneself. To destroy oneself or to be destroyed.
.
And yet, in essence...the urge to selfdestruct is the brain and the heart and the soul screaming for connection, for understanding, for love, for warmth, for forgiveness ♡

The challenges that triggers present can often be an opportunity for deeper self-awareness, self-expansion, and growth. When we notice a trigger, we might gently ask ourselves,

What do I need from me right now? What will feel soothing to me in this moment?

What does the younger version of me need from my adult self? How can I take care of them?

Who can I turn to for support? Is it safe to share part of what’s going on with me?

What is this trigger trying to tell me? In what ways can I go deeper? What are the ways in which I have already healed? In what ways do I still need to heal?

When you check in with the young parts of yourself, how old do they think you are? Sometimes the young ones believe you are still the same age as them, or just a bit older. They may not know that you hold a job and take care of yourself the best you can.

Sometimes, the young parts of ourselves are still reliving the trauma they experienced then. They don’t know that it is over.

Sometimes our young parts are stuck in old patterns or beliefs. They may not realize the knowledge or success you have gained.

When we update these young parts, they can find a steady place within us. They can feel safer and taken care of. They can beam with pride over the adult you turned out to be and the healing work you’ve achieved.

What happens for your young parts when you update them?

When we are making bids for connection, and we aren’t being responded to time and time again, it can leave us feeling hopeless.
It can leave us feeling disconnected and throw us into a state of deep grieving.
And often when we begin to go into an intense period of grieving (when we are still in the relationship) that can be very hard to recover from.
.
.
I don’t know if there is a sadder feeling than being in a relationship with someone and still feeling utterly alone.
I’m not talking about the existential loneliness that we all feel from time to time.
I’m not talking about the loneliness we feel when we occasionally don’t feel seen or understand by our partner.
.
.
No - I’m talking about the loneliness and the deep despair we can feel when we don’t feel cared for or important to our partner for an extended period of time.
I’m talking about the emotional neglect that takes place every day and all around the world inside of intimate relationships.
I’m talking about the turning away from our loved one as they continue to desperately reach to connect with us.
.
.
Here are some questions to explore around this topic:
Do we make our partners needs as important as our own?
Do we prioritize their thoughts + feelings to the best of our ability?
Do we create connection rituals to check in with each other?
Do we stand up for our needs + vocalize when we are feeling lonely?
Do we suggest getting support if we feel stuck?
Do we respond to our partner’s bids to get support even if we don’t personally see the ‘need’ for it?
.
.
Not every relationship is meant to be brought back to life.
Some relationships simply do their beautiful job of painfully mirroring our limitations in loving.
.
.
I am grateful for the ending of every relationship I’ve been.
For they have painfully taught me what hasn’t worked.
They have showed me where the love was neglected on both sides.
They have guided me to speak up much more quickly when my lonely meter begins to run too low.
And they have allowed to see my partner’s cries for connection with much more heart and much more tenderness than ever before.
