"I’ve been feeling all the feels the past several days. From anxiety to sadness to fear to nausea to nervousness, I’ve seen it all. There has been a three-day music festival, my fiance’s birthday party, planning our rehearsal dinner, helping with our engagement party, a big doctor’s appointment, an episode of my Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome, and--oh yeah--work (one week until Fall semester starts; I’m not panicking, you’re panicking). It’s been a lot.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ And, I’m trying to use my practices in the moment. I’m breathing, doing physical activity, sharing with friends, talking about my fears, being kind to myself, using positive self-talk, saying no when I need to. And, it’s still a lot. It’s time to get real about where my baseline has been at. As I’ve been taking on more and more responsibilities (by choice, things I want to do), I’ve been letting my baseline slide. I’m making time for yoga with friends and walking the dog and listening to motivating podcasts all while ignoring the fact that I need to take some time to slow down and process all of the major shifts I’ve been making lately."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Click the link in my bio to read the full blog post⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ [or visit www.neelyoconnor.com/blog]⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #depression #depressed #anxiety #anxious #bipolar #bipolardisorder #stigma #stopthestigma #college #collegestudent #freshmanyear #sophomoreyear #junioryear #senioryear #collegedepression #collegeanxiety #anxiousaf #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealth #depressedaf #mentalhealthwarrior #mentalhealthadvocate #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealthsurvivor #stopdepression #enddepression #stopanxiety #bpd #panicattacks #panicattacksurvivor
Gave my buddy airpods a apple pencil nose. . . . . . . . . I know how to change the world. Just give me that spark and my voice will flame the darkness away. #apple #appleairpods #applepencil #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #depression #depressionawareness #anxiety #bipolar #endthestigma #iamthechange
When that feeling hits you like a tonne of bricks, that something’s wrong, doesn’t feel right, or you’re just overwhelmed, the first thing you need to do is ACKNOWLEDGE it. — Take that power back and make it yours because you’re the only one who can change how you feel about any given situation. — You got this!
Mental health advocacy is EVERYTHING to me.

. FEAR. That is the chain I need to break free from, the one thing holding me prisoner in my own recovery. And I am the only one holding that key. . I'm doing "things" that I need, to move forward in my healing process, but then I hit a brick wall. I felt stagnant, even though I continued my daily practice of "things", & wondered why? Little did I know that brick wall I hit was built by myself. . One simple, yet complicated/imprisoning word...fear. My fear has grown over the years, to the point of extreme limitations & OCD tendencies. I check the doors constantly when I'm at home & worry when I leave that they aren't all locked. I always need to have the drapes closed. Every loud or "not known" noise sends me into a "startle response" & my mind starts to race, always to the "what ifs". I'm scared to go for walks by myself, scared to go to concerts or places with large crowds, scared of flying, scared of heights, always need to be overly prepared for anything. I'm scared to take that "leap of faith" in life/myself. My life has morphed into one of living like a prisoner within my "walls" of fear. . The thing is, I'm not fearful of the future & what it might hold, I'm fearful of my past repeating itself. Of trauma repeating itself. Of certain hardships repeating themselves. Of ME making the same mistakes again. So, ever so slowly & unconsciously, over the years I built my walls up & didn't even realize the true reasons why. I would make excuses for EVERYTHING to avoid doing it. Each excuse was just another "brick" in my wall. . The funny part is, I've always been fearful, but in the past I still did those things anyway. I now think back & no matter what happened, God was always there. He was always by my side, even when I tried to die by suicide, He wouldn't let me. No matter the trauma, abuse, joblessness, homelessness or hopelessness, He always guided me through &, eventually, helped me see the lesson/reason in it. . Doing the "things" in my healing process isn't
It's like wtf am I even up right now? I've had less than 3 hours of sleep the whole night. Coughing fit. Front doors being left open to let bright outdoor light in(Don't ask). Last but not least, chatter. Yep, chatter. Because I guess it would kill some people to be considerate of others 🤷‍♀️👀. Because y'know, it's not like I have #physicaltherapy today or anything 🙃. Also fun fact: Lack of #sleep makes a #bipolar persons symptoms worse, even more so if you have a #sleepdisorder such as #sleepapnea like I do. So everyone can deal with my ragey ass today. #sorrynotsorry #annoyed #thisisridiculous #killeveryone #tired #tiredaf #thisisgettingold #rip #oneofthosedays #rant #iwanttosettheworldonfire #andwatchitburn #icantwaittomove #iwishiwasmedicated #ihatemyliferightnow
Day 08 of recovery. I woke up to a rainy day. No proper sleep meant less energy for a good workout. So workout was more of meditation and subtle movements in the form of Tai-Chi in the morning. We had people over for dinner today. So a nice vegan cake was the welcome addition to our meal plan. Thank you.
