🐱🧠 SSRI appreciation post 🧠🐱
A year ago I was working an ill-suited job at a horrible workplace (Abels wassup) & living in an apartment I hated. I needed to feel confident & deserving of better for myself, and feel motivated to pursue it. This process was significantly shortened by the support of loved ones, and you guessed it- SSRIs! In less than 400 days I've felt more optimistic about my future than I've felt in the last 10 years of my life, and I have no idea where I would be without the help.
So don't let people (even your family) make you feel bad about having to take prescription medication for a mental illness!!! We are just barely the first generation to acknowledge that mental illness exists as a cascade of biochemical failures instead of a character flaw. Most people still don't think this way, but if you do then their opinion doesn't matter! You're in control of the life you want to live and the way in which you spend your time on this world 💕

Yesterday we were lucky enough to expand our lil family by two black kittens 🐱🐱 They aren't blood related, but they're only 3 days apart and they fight like siblings. They barely slow down enough for me to take even a terrible photo! The lady laying down is Lemon and the fella hanging out next to her is Lime, and we all love each other already!!! 💛💚🖤

Thank you to all of the incredible people who risk their lives in the hopes of security and peace. Thank you to the men, women, and children who emotionally support their veterans and wait for them to come home safe. Though I don't agree with most of the actions and choices of the US armed forces, the people who make such enormous sacrifices should be honored and taken care of here and abroad.

Happy Pesach and/or a wonderful Easter weekend to those who celebrate! ✡🕆🐇
Our Seder last night was definitely an interesting experience, my favorite part was that each person discussed their own personal exodus that has happened in the last year. When I had said that I was extremely proud of dropping out of college to focus on my health, 3 separate women came to me to tell me how brave I was to take the time off in the first place, let alone discuss it so openly. I see it as an obligation; I have been beyond blessed in my progress and support, so I must advocate for those who may not have that, or who may need a little more ❤

Day 3 had a few stresses and plenty of blessings. We started the day with a Beauty and the Beast breakfast, followed by some rides, crowds, and the sweetest hat embroidery lady. When we had come to Space Mountain, the sensory deprivation had put me mentally into the same place I was when I had been admitted to the hospital. Even though my mind thought I was past the traumatic event, the body stores those memories and emotions as deep as they can to protect itself. It's okay to feel bad if you're in the happiest place on earth. Mental illness doesn't abide by geography, so let yourself feel everything so the next time it won't hurt as badly
