In all three of these photos, I am struggling with an eating disorder.
When I was very young, I developed a fear of food. My palette was tiny and basic, as I wouldn’t try anything different. I was put on various medications to help as I was lacking the vital nutrients to survive. I was scared of meal times, scared of eating, scared of anything that involved food.
At 14 I developed bulimia, which I dealt with for 4 years. I was secretive, manipulative and gaining and losing weight like crazy. I lived a very unhealthy lifestyle, including drinking heavily and smoking.
This then turned into binge eating disorder. I struggle to gain control of my eating and what I am eating, and even though I’ve been in recovery for years from bulimia, I have never dealt with the binge eating.
I am currently in the proceeds of seeing a dietician, and am getting help FINALLY for my eating problems.
It’s okay if you’re still in the midst of recovery, not knowing where you’re going. You’re going to be okay, support yourself with a good support system, educate yourself on ways to help yourself, and ALLOW HELP.
ALLOW HELP AND RECOVERY.
That is the BIGGEST step.
To my younger selves, I’m sorry you were struggling, I’m sorry you were hurting. I’m proud of you. 🖤
To those struggling with Thanksgiving, I am with you, I love you and it is just one day. You have got this.

Two weeks straight these boys have had in their heads they are getting a dirt bike for Christmas. Now I'm not sure we're or how this thought came about but this is NOT going to happen.
But they have continued to watch every you tube video possible as I listen to the niiing niiing noise of the dirt bike and the smile on their faces I can't help but think I'm going to be disappointing them this Xmas.
They found a helmet each on gumtree for $20 each so guilty father felt he had to buy them as this dirt bike thing is just not going to eventuate.
So here we are with two oversized helmets on these crazy twins riding their push bikes down the road thinking they look the part 😂🙄 but to me they look like two bobble heads riding around complete crazy but it makes them happy so I swallow my thoughts and my guilty conscience and tell them they look totally AWSOME. 😜😆💙🌈
Tanı mutlaka bir Çocuk psikiyatristi/Psikiyatri uzmanı tarafından konulur. Sorunların ve birlikte bulunan bozuklukların çokluğu ve karmaşık oluşu, tedavide de bütünleyici, çok yönlü ve sistematik bir yaklaşımı gerektirir. "Bütünleyici tedavi", Dikkat Eksikliği Hiperaktivite Bozukluğu'nun sağaltımında etkinliği kanıtlanmış yaklaşımların doğru bir biçimde uygulanması anlamına gelir. Bütünleyici tedavi:1-Aile ve Hastanın Eğitimi, baş etmeyi öğrenmesi2-Okul Çalışması ve destekleyici eğitim çalışması3-Davranışcı Terapi4-Destekleyici Tedavi5-İlaç Tedavisi toplu olarak uygulanmasıdır. İlaç tedavisi çoğu kez kullanılır. Buna hekim karar vermelidir. Dikkat arttırıcı çalışmaların, özel eğitimin tekbaşına yararı yoktur. Ayrıaca tedavide biofeedback uygulamasının, diyet uygulamalarının, bazı dikkat arttırıcı olduğu söylenen maddelerin bilimsel olarak tedavide yeri yoktur.
Aile ve Hastanın Eğitimi
• Hastalığı anlatmak, bilgi vermek
• Tedavinin anlatılarak uyumun sağlanması
• Disiplin sistemini öğretmek
• Oturma yerini ve ilişkilerini düzenlemek
• Okula bilgi vererek akademik başarıyı dengelemeye çalışmak
• Aile-okul işbirliği
• Birebir ders çalışmasının ayarlanması
Erişkin DEHB tedavisinde de ilk seçenek ilaç tedavisidir. Ancak, sorun erişkinliğe kadar tanımlan -mamışsa bilişsel üçlü olarak bilinen KENDİLERİ, DÜNYA VE GELECEK hakkında geliştirdikleri inanç sistemleri üzerinde önemli etkileri olur.Birçok erişkinin Dikkat Eksikliği Hiperaktivite Bozukluğu'nun uzun süreli öyküsü nedeniyle cesareti kırılmış ve kendine güveni azalmıştır. Başarısız olduğu konulardan uzak durmaya, hiç denememeye kendini alıştırmıştır. DEHB’nun en belirgin olduğu ortam sınıftır. Bu nedenle, öğretmenler tedavinin önemli bir öğesidir ve onların işbirliği olmadan başarıya ulaşmak güçtür. Öğretmenin başarılı olabilmesi için, öncelikle DEHB hakkında yeterince bilgisi olması gerekir. Çünkü tanı konulmuş çocukların tedavisi kadar, tanı konulmamış çocukların saptanmasında da öğretmenler önemlidir. Öğretmenin en önemli görevi, kendine saygısı ve güveni azalan çocuğun,başarılı olduğu alanları desteklemektir.#dehb#tedavi#adhdawareness
My mental illness has been kicking my ass recently, so here are some things I’m happy about:
My family is amazing and supportive.
James is wonderful and caring.
I have lovely friends.
There are plenty more dogs to be petted.
I have cheesy Doritos.
I am going to get through this. WE, are going to get through this.
One step at a time 🖤

Anxiety has been apart of my life since birth. Being premie in neonatal intensive care for 3 mths I became anxious due to all the noises and lights. Growing up I found pushing my anxiety down deep so no one would notice my weakness was easy to do much easier then facing it head on. As i became a teenager I found myself sinking deeper into anxiety and depression not knowing why I felt this way. Fast forwarding into adulthood I've realised now why I always wanted to be out in nature it calmed my internal clock. I'm finding the more I ground myself with touch (nature) and sound (water trickling, wind chimes) and smell ( natures essence, natural oils) no sight is needed for you just close your eyes and you will FEEL this from your feet to your head. Doing this allows me to handle the day that lies ahead of me. As I tend to loose grip of reality a lot I wear bells around my ankle this reminds me I am here in the present and regains my mental focus from an emotional state.
I have always been a dreamer and if I do not ground myself every day I would float away like a feather in the wind I would be thrown of balance very easily becoming highly emotional.
So ground yourself today give it a go it just may be what you need especially those highly connected asd/ adhd children. 🍂🍃🌱🌳
10pm & a loud grunt echoes from Stanley's bedroom, mummy jumps into Wonder Woman mode (well, kind of... the type in pyjamas and fresh saliva dripping onto her pillow, yes we are both long gone by 10pm) she sprints across the house with panic smothering her face as if some meteorite has decimated our street and she's on her way to pull Stanley from the burning rubble! This never changes, it could be the slightest of noises and she's up like a shot (needless to say I'm right behind). Luckily the apocalypse was not upon us but instead a boy in bed on all fours barfing a mountain of half digested pasta and sweetcorn all over his body and bed! Wonder Woman quickly stands aside and Captain Vomit enters the room. For some reason I thrive when this happens, my personality changes and out comes the most calm and conscientious person I've ever been. For some reason when Stanley's poorly he suddenly forgets mummy and instantly wants me... which would be beautiful if my job wasn't collating the vomit into the mattress protector (has to be up there with the telephone in terms of inventions) or peeling pasta from his belly button! He was amazing though, and it's incredible to see how he deals with these things. Wiped up, new sheets and back in bed, he wandered through to our room half a dozen times through the night, waking me up, face a few inches from mine saying 'daddy, I'm going to do it again' almost like a warning that he's shortly going to over my face... but no, he'd lead me off to the toilet and direct it straight down the bowl, Victory!
Anyway... this is him eagerly waiting for me to get back from a quick hour at work this morning - It's such a nice feeling that Danielle's job is now more important than mine which means I'm the one (much to Danielle's disgust) that gets to take the time off work to look after him. I absolutely love it, we had such an amazing day, didn't do anything special just spent the day with each other. I'm quickly realising this is the future. We've not been rushing out the house, rushing home, food, and then bed. I struggle when I have other things to focus on but today we've both absolute thrived. more please, everyday!
Jag är så glad för att du är PRECIS den du är💜 Men jag är så ledsen för alla de oförstående människor som du måste möta under ditt liv, över all okunskap och alla åsikter som drabbar dig. Över alla personer inom skola och i vårt samhälle som tycker och tror att det ”går att skärpa sig”, som inte tror på det dom inte kan se, ledsen över att du behöver möta människor som vill att du skall passa in i boxen. Men älskling, OLIKA ÄR BRA. Många personer är bara för small minded för att se det. #autismawareness#npf#adhd#olikaärbra#loveyoumorethanlife#adhdawareness
This month has be a struggle. I've been battling my ADHD and a few nights ago it won. I broke down. I wanted to give up on art, cosplay and being creative.
However I didn't give up. I love being creative, even if I have to work extra hard. I will keep trying. I'm proud of what I've done even if it doesn't seem like much to others. Please keep supporting me and I'll keep trying.
