My baby sister has anxiety and I watched with my own eyes her mood stabilizing drugs save her life and let her live “normally.” She used to get so upset she couldn’t even go to the store. And it’s not her fault. Now she is so social and active it’s absolutely such a wonderful transformation. But it took years to get there. I would literally slap anyone who told her she shouldn’t take them or should get off of them. I’m wishing you the same success, my love. Honest to God, it’s a /miracle/
Thank you so so much! I’m so glad you saw such a transformation in your sister, makes me hopeful it’ll be the same for me. I hope it’ll only be temporary because I am a little concerned about side effects, but if I ultimately have to choose between living miserably and having some side effects from drugs, I’d choose the second in a heartbeat. Give your sister all the hugs, and thank you for being such a warm, amazing person <3
Hyalite opal (water opal) has a bubble like appearance it is said to be a mood stabilizer and a protector warning you of risky events to come. It’s great to have around when studying or when you need to clear your mind.
music is sort of cathartic, for me. It’s quite negative sometimes, but
somehow it takes all the negativity from inside me and leaves me
purified. I always feel much better, much calmer, after listening to
breaking benjamin… it’s the feeling of calm after the storm has passed.”
having my phone off for two weeks and taking a step back socially was one of the best things i did for my mental health besides therapy & mood stabilizers. and that’s not to say you have to become a hermit who doesn’t see anyone but! like not involving yourself in everything, letting yourself know the doldrums of time and space where you are not so consciously and consistently occupied. staring out a bus window. fidgeting among yourself, finding new things to fill that hum. it’s so fulfilling and gratifying. not knowing everything. the not knowing is really gratifying.
My friend told me to tell you guys, self medicating yourself by going OFF of your mood stabilizing medication for the purpose if embarking on a “spiritual journey” is a really really really really bad idea. Don’t do that. Ever.
