Because anxiety nausea is the worst! I'm pretty in love with these ginger chews from @chimes_gourmet . These one have a touch of peppermint essential oil which is refreshing, and also great for digestion.
I fell into a VERY black hole this week, with depression so severe, all I could do was rock back and forth, and pray, like I was at the bottom of a ditch, filling with septic water. The darkest thoughts imaginable filled my mind and a cacophony of shrieking voices filled my head, telling me to kill myself. I prayed out to God, begged for grace and waited. If you’ve never known what it’s like to go that place, you are very, very lucky. If you have been to that cerebral hellhole, you’re not alone. So many people suffer like this, often the most gifted people. When I get like this, I ghost. Whatever gets you through. Whatever gets you through. I’m through now. I’m ok. And I’m going to start going more public with this. I have a real, treatable, definable, mental illness. It’s run in my family for generations. I’m breaking any and all silence. I hurt. Everybody hurts. Some just get it at a volume that is deafening, and on a feedback loop that is merciless. I’m so glad artists like @ladygaga are fearless enough to make others feel brave enough to speak. I’m with her, and all my fellow sisters and brothers who have spent a night (or a lifetime) in the heavy chains of fear. May you be free. May you be well. Peace. Come out. I see you, and it’s ok to be vulnerable and authentic. 🖤⚔️🕸👁 #repost @ladygaga ・・・ The National Institute of Mental Health’s research shows 1 in 5 adults in America experience a mental illness.
