Community Question🌹
This app has helped me so much so far, but I feel like I've been using it heavily to only vent, SO I think it would be fun to do a rose, thorn, bud thing for this week. I welcome y'all to share your rose, thorn, and buds below this!!

Rose(highlight, success, small win): My medications are starting to get leveled out again!

Thorn(challenge or something you need support in): I've been having a hard time having meaningful connections with friends and keeping in contact.

Bud(new ideas and beginnings, hopeful, things you want to see happen): I am working with a job coach and it has been going well, I'm hopeful that I will find employment within the next months

    Rose: I am going to be visiting a childhood friend this weekend to celebrate her birthday! Thorn: one of the bones in my foot is lifting out of place and causing my weight to fall on the next joint over, and it’s causing painful damage to the joint and ligaments…. Doctors said the only two treatment options are wearing orthotics (I already do) or fuzing the bones together? Yikes🥴 Bud: I have been working on some exciting art projects and can see progress! I have some pieces for sale in a local gallery 🤗

And most importantly I’m learning to enjoy it rather than feel tortured by it ❤️

    rose: i showered today, and have only been late to one class this week! it’s my first week back at college, so i’m still getting into the swing of things. thorn: it’s going to get really busy soon; rehearsals are going to start, work is going to start again, homework is going to ramp up, etc. and i can’t help but worry that with everything i’ve been staying on top of already, it’s all going to crumble once i add on more things. bud: i got a raise at aforementioned job, and i’m going to be working more hours! i love my job (stage hand) and my crew.

    Rose: I've been getting a lot of art and animations done recently! Thorn: I've been reacting really badly to all the mood stabilizers I've been put on which makes it hard to be hopeful that there is a good med for me? :/ Bud: I'm really hoping I can get some better pain meds cause that would do wonders- and also I'm working really art to open an art business right now so I really hope in the next few months that can help with rent! :^)

    Rose:. I get to have my two little service dogs with me in the hotel where I am. Thorn:. I had a terrible cardiologist appointment because the jerk wouldn't answer any of my questions, monitor my heart, tell me what my diagnosis is, or let me know anything about if my pacemaker is doing anything now. Bud: A friend is taking me to my appointment with my PCP and is going to come to help me as I should have the right to have a person with me.

    Rose: this week I created art every day, which is a big deal since I’m depressed, and am dealing with kidney disease and all the side effects from all my meds so I feel like complete sh*t physically and mentally. Thorn: I need this freaking kidney disease to go back in remission so I don’t feel so sick and unlike myself 24/7. Bud: I have supported the toddler I nanny for in their neurodivergence very effectively(as an autistic adult) and am seeing great progress in their language and self regulation. I love my job and can’t wait to keep watching them grow.
