people with mental illnesses who joke about having mental illnesses in order to cope with said mental illnesses ARE NOT ROMANTICIZING MENTAL ILLNESSES

We love that Brandon Stanton, through his work on Humans of New York, has allowed people to have honest conversations. 
We hope this girl finds compassion for her younger self.
We hope that, when you meet someone living with a mental illness, you are able to understand and accept instead of reacting against them. 
People need other people.

panic/anxiety attack

chris-sid:

jaspinder:

  • breath in for 4 seconds
  • hold your breath for 7 seconds
  • exhale breath for 8 seconds

repeat once or twice more.

This causes an autonomic nervous system shift from a sympathetic (fight or flight reaction) state to a parasympathetic response.

Use this for panic/anxiety attacks, exams, presentations.

Never not reblog

"What did I think was wrong?

That made it sound as if nothing was really wrong. I only thought it was wrong."

Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

"Suppose you try and tell me what you think is wrong."

convertingtolight:

Mental illnesses aren’t clear cut. Symptoms over lap. Symptoms contradict. Some days are better than others. Some days are worse than others. It can get messy. No matter where you are on the spectrum- your thoughts & feelings are valid. You are precious. You deserve to be listened to. You deserve compassion. Just because X over there is struggling a bit more than you today, it doesn’t make you any less worthy of support.

"Cold glass, how you insert yourself

Between myself and myself.
I scratch like a cat.

The blood that runs is dark fruit
An effect, a cosmetic.

You smile.
No, it is not fatal."

Sylvia Plath, “The Other,” from Ariel: The Restored Edition

"My mental illness is NOT who I am."

Although she has dealt with depression and anxiety, Stephanie has learned her diagnosis does not define her. Her story continues knowing that hope and help are real.
