How do you cope with your mental health symptoms?

      For the longest time I didn’t and I had a mental break down in July ‘21. You need to make time for yourself every single day. Personally I’d cut down on OT and extra work. Do things you find joy in and things that make your body and mind relax. There are days I just have to take time to just lay still in the quiet and just breath and let my mind go where it wants and I listen to myself. Some days I paint, game, read. I love ASMR videos. I also started video journaling just for myself since I really broke down in July. When I have a feeling and I know it shouldn’t be bottled, I whip out my phone and talk to myself and it alleviates some of that pent of pressure. I also support mental health counseling, even just basic talk therapy. Personally a big factor for piecing myself together again was my faith. I had to stop fighting myself, stop trying to be Wonder Woman, stop trying to be everything for everyone, and let go and let God and do some real soul searching as to who I am now and how I can move forward. I pray and cry a lot, but I always find peace at the end of those moments.

      I love to do crafts and play with my animals. Talk to people. Be outside and go for short walks to get anxious energy out.

      It’s really hard sometimes. But just understanding that you’re a little different from someone due to your brain rather than something being wrong with YOU like your own person is better. People are always going to stereotype and use false information to try and pull us down but as long as we know that we are okay and that we are special then we can make sure those people don’t pull us under.
