Health and Sanity Check-Ins

Things are crazy now. I think we are all trying to stay healthy and maintain sanity as well. I thought I would start this thread so folks can check in and discuss how they're doing. I want all my BIC friends to be okay. I will kick this off with a first post. Take care of yourself lovelies.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface yes he does get frustrated,,, but it's usually when someone tries to finish what he's saying, he has to get it out himself. He's such a sweet and loving kid. It takes a village!! And members of BIC are in my village 😊😘 🤗

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface that's quite a lot to go through all at once.  I'm glad your new psychiatrist has helped you with your grief from your parents' deaths, and also with your newly diagnosed asd and adhd. Having those diagnoses will help you so much. It sounds like you're in a better place. I hope you feel even better soon. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@curlychiquita   Oh gosh yes, being treated for the adhd alone has been world altering but in such a subtle way.  I’m already feeling better.  Lots of work to go but it’s off to a good start:).  I appreciate all the support from you and everyone here too.

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface - I'm sorry you're going through such a difficult time!  I understand what you're going through.  My entire life, I was diagnosed as chronically depressed, but I knew there was more to it than that.  It wasn't until my 40s that I was diagnosed as bipolar.  Now that you have the correct diagnosis, you'll receive the correct therapy and treatment.  You'll eventually begin to feel better, but it will take time.  Hang in there!  (((HUG)))  💖💖💖

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Titian06   Thank you.  I’m glad you were eventually able to get properly diagnosed. I’m sorry you had a similar experience being treated for the wrong thing and not knowing why treatment wasn’t effective.   Best wishes on your journey.  I don’t mind it taking time as long as theres hope- which there is now. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface I'm so sorry to hear about your losses, but I'm glad to know that you're seeking the help you need. I also got diagnosed with some issues when I sought help after my dad's death last year, and I feel like life makes so much more sense now that I know how my brain works. But I don't want to make this about me--just wanted to say that I know what that's like, and thanks for sharing your story!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@txcatx  awww i hope you’re doing and feeling  better now.  All the preexisting hidden issues come to the surface when your life is shaken up.  Then you’re expected to find a new balance but you were barely balancing before you lost an important part of that balance.  Ha does that make sense?  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface I am really sorry, especially that you have had to manage all of your life (almost) without the clarity you needed to help you properly sort things out for yourself. Kudos on getting the help you need, and for finding someone to help you along the journey. I hope you are gentle on yourself, and give yourself the time and space you need to continue to heal. Hugs from over here, too 💗💗💗  

 

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface I've been thinking about you lately. I'm so sorry things got as bad as they have for you, but I'm also glad you were able to get help and connect the pieces and get an accurate diagnoses! 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Samtian   Thanks:)

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@itsfi   Thank you.   Hugs back!   And there’s a preconceived asd notion I had.  I LOVE hugs!  And if I enjoy hugs I just couldn’t be cause my son doesn’t enjoy hugs and it seems to be a common trait among other diagnosed people I’ve met on the spectrum.  

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface, more hugs …

Everyone gets a hug.jpeg

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface I am sorry to hear you are going through such a rough time but I am glad to hear you are finally getting the diagnosis you need and hopefully things will continue to improve now!!! Thinking of you!

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@Kim888  Thank you.  Things are already looking up.  I just can’t believe it took this long to figure it out. 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface Awww....I just want to give you a hug.  Thank you for sharing something so private with us.  I hope that you get the help that you need to overcome this and I am so sorry for your losses.  I feel like we all have stuff going on and the pandemic didn't help any of it.

 

If you ever need to talk you know where to find me.

 

Hugs 🤗

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@SportyGirly125 @Thank you, I appreciate that.   
In a way it’s a positive thing I burned out and couldn’t maintain the neuro typical mask I didn’t know I was wearing or I likely wouldn’t have sought out help and I’d still have this uncanny sense something was wrong with me.  At least I know what’s happening and know nothing’s terribly wrong per say.  My brain just works a little differently.  

 

Re: Health and Sanity Check-Ins

@heartsmyface We love you just the way you are.  Perfect. 😘
