Food is medicine and we weren’t taught to use it as such.
Here are the foods and supplements I wish I knew I needed years ago.

🍫 Dark chocolate:

Choose quality stuff: dark chocolate with 70% or higher cocoa content.

🥬 Dark leafy Greens:

* Leafy green vegetables such as kale and spinach can boost your iron levels.

🫖 Raspberry leaf (tea):

* Vitamin B6, found in red raspberry leaves, is a fighter of all things PMS, including mood changes and irritability.

🥒 Pickles:

Specifically pickle juice has been tested and shown to help reduce and relieve cramp duration.

🧡 Ginger:

Ginger may also reduce nausea🤢

Caution ⚠️ : Consuming more than 4 grams in one day could cause heartburn and stomachaches

💊 Magnesium:

I’m gonna be REALLY honest right now…

My mental health is still pretty bad.

I still put so much pressure on myself to do well, to do more, to be consistent, that sometimes I can’t even breathe. 😩

I’m trying so hard —everyday— to not equate my worth to my body, my income, whether I can pass a standardized test, my career or friendships.

I’m still learning to take myself less seriously and just enjoy life.
I still don’t have the best grasp on my emotions somedays ♋️ ☀️ ♓️ 🌙

I still turn to food as my only source of happiness some days.

I hate my body some days.

I still hate myself more than I’d like to.

I miss people — some who I shouldn’t/don’t want to miss 😔

I’m still lonely and don’t feel like I deserve good things sometimes.

When I look at this year, it doesn’t necessarily meet my definition of a good year. But maybe I’m not giving myself enough credit for how far I’ve come and how much I’ve grown this year.
I’m smarter. I’m stronger —both physically and mentally—, I’m healthier, I’m whole.

I feel like I’ve healed this year, yet somehow feel more lost

I’m more ME than I’ve ever been and I have a lot of good people to thank for that. And me, thank you me.

I had to take a moment and go backwards and look at all the good that happened this year. It’s so easy to get caught up on the gaps and downfalls

Dear 2022, thank you for another year of my life.

I hope you stay safe during this time. I know how hard the holidays can be and you shouldn’t have to suffer in silence or alone.

Sometimes “just checking in” isn’t enough. Make your people not feel like burdens, show them they aren’t.
Stay safe. Be kind 🖤✨

Flirty. 30. And Borderline Thriving🖤🖕🏾✨

These people (and the ones around me this year) help make the thriving park a bit easier and I definitely cried on them this week because of how amazing, loving and beautiful they are 🥹

Trying to start off 30 with no s**tty thoughts.

As I told No s**tty thoughts allowed, you don’t let s**t sit in a litter box, so sift that s**t out 🙃. Flirty. 30 & sifting 😹🖕🏾

After talking to a friend about spirituality and Qi Gong, I realized why I continue to come back to Tadasana (Mountain Pose)
This powerful and shockingly difficult pose. Stillness, breath and awareness.

Qi Gong is supposed to help clear the chakras, and the more my friend talked about solar plexus clearing, I realized Samasthiti/Tadasana provided the same clearing.
Returning to Mountain is like returning home, to the beginning

This little routine has become my morning nervous system calmer.

Constantly called to yoga; todo it, to teach it, to speak about its value.



Everything you put out comes back to you multiplied.
Your words are magic bb 🪄

Everyday you speak, you speak incantations/affirmations.
What you put out comes back and multiples. Good or bad.
(So mote it be ✨)



“I never have the chance to make things happen” is now an affirmation to the universe saying I’m never going to get the chance to make things happen (times 3! 💀)

Create powerful words that open up possibilities.
My therapist would be very happy with me 🫠

I am an affective and powerful public speaker and I’m excited about teaching yoga to all my favourite beans 🥹 and warmly welcome anyone who’s been quietly watching from the sidelines.

I will be nervous, but my intention is to create a safe space to move and be where you’re at right now, in this moment 🖤

No longer stressing about studying has literally been the most freeing feeling! Including finally feeling like I’m on a medication that makes me present, rather than numb and broken and understanding that I am not broken.

Anyways, this post was just to trick you into going to my story and voting on my poll for weekly yoga classes 🤭😬

This projector needs to stop and thinking/talking and start doing, I’m nervous as f**k but I’ll take a breath, count to 10 and see if I die, and you can come along for the ride

Does anyone know wtf?!
Can I still blame retrograde because, wtf?!?



People are very disappointing this month 😔
This month has been a struggle. This month has required me to open my heart even though it feels wounded and shattered.
This month has made me release many tears, of joy, of rage and sadness.

All heightened by the splitting mind of an anxious borderline, who’s trying and coming off Effexor 😖

Apparently as a perfectionist who enjoys to create, I will continually be paralyzed and not put out things until they are “perfect”.

Still haven’t launched my yoga classes because it’s not perfect and neither is my practice space.
Wouldn’t have posted this crop top selfie until my lower abs were my definition of perfect 😹🥹🥲 …HELP!

When you finally get an appetite and someone decides to watch you eat 👀

My anti anxiety meds have me uninterested in food and it takes me until 3pm or a vigorous workout to get my appetite to show up. And even then, sometimes it doesn’t. 😩 (then it’s w**d to the rescue)

I have been someone who has struggled with food in the past. It’s another one of those taboos you don’t talk about, because it’s icky. But feeling this way has been triggering and frustrating, and I’ve felt like I went 5 steps back.

“Just eat something” isn’t so easy because forcing food ends up triggering nausea and causing a spiral of thoughts.

This spiral leads me to remind myself, to be mindful and listen to my body.
Trying not to focus on the side effects of the medication because besides this one feeling they seem to be working.
.

This week has been a clear reminder that none of this healing is linear.

We unfortunately live in a society that worships and celebrates celebrities for their bodies.
Its harmful and I’ve seen it first hand in the Fitness Industry as well, from crash diets, to photoshop, to body shamming for not looking “right”.

There’s a difference between weight loss for health and weight loss for vanity.
And I think we all need a little re-education on nutrition and self image. STAT!

COMA NAPS • & • MEDICATION 💊🖤

This medication change has me all types of f**ked up.
Slowly weening off of my anti depressants (Effexor)to finally get treated for my main diagnosis of Anxiety
Withdrawal hasn’t been as horrible as the last few medications but the lyrica has me extreme exhausted. Kind of my normal except this is a sluggish exhaustion.
On the upside the constant body ache/back pain I feel on the daily has decreased and I feel able to function 🥲.
Less increased heart rate causing panic attacks and sweating, which has me feeling better about exercise and movement again.

This is reminder to be aware of your body.
If I hadn’t advocated for myself (which took 6 months) knowing that something was up, I could still be suffering on this medication that made me feel like a disassociating ball of sweat. 🥵

I’ll take the exhaustion over feeling severely uncomfortable in my body and struggling to exercise.

I’m FREEEEEE!!! I did it!!
88 weeks of bulls**t college during a friggen pandemic! Trials and tribulations x1000

I wanted to quit so many times!
It made me cry, I got heavy in my depression, my brain couldn’t handle it. I lost love ones during this program and had to drag myself to finish, my mental health in a pandemic alone in a new city and new learning environment took a turn and there were days I couldn’t pull myself out of bed.

Going back to school really showed me that I don’t learn the same as everyone else which was a challenge and took some time to figure out. But I made it and I’m exhausted and I’m so f**king proud of myself 😭😭 I know Myrtella and Jeremy would be proud of me for not giving up on this path. 👼🏻👼🏽🖤
Now I need a week of drunken stupor, w**d and self care before I register to get my massage therapist license and do these exams one more time for realsies.

Last weeks appointment validated a diagnosis I considered in the past. The validation brought relief but days later brought on intrusive thoughts.
So I figured I’d remind myself by reminding you “You are not your diagnosis”
You are not less of a person because of it. You aren’t weaker because of it and you aren’t somehow less lovable for surviving trauma 🖤✨

When you finally come into your bad bitch magic 🪄

I’ve been doing some intense therapy the last couple of months. The desire to not exist intensified over the last two years.

In a way it was as if I didn’t exist anyway. Being in a pandemic, filled with uncertainty and Living in a new city where I don’t have the community I had in Toronto.
The last two years have felt like a deserted island with the occasional fellow lost soul who stumbled through until they were no longer around.

My BPD and abandonment has been triggered to the max. My wounds splayed open but understood by those on the internet then where I live. ❤️‍🩹
My identity of who I am in this city had to evolve and so did I.

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of doing a subconscious energy clearing with my lovely internet soul connection ✨ (thanks for sticking around)

I didn’t know what to expect but the release was powerful.
The affirmations and power Tori put back in me came out. She helped me dispel old nasty thoughts and stories I’ve been carrying around for years because I was ready to allow it.

The wounded girl is still there.
She is healing and taking it a day, a breath and a moment at a time 🖤
You can still be and be a bad bitch

Thanks to Tori’s recommendation of a selenite wand I treated myself to a Love Goddess manifestation kit with rose quartz, moonstone and selenite.

Selenite is known to:

Provide clarity, insight, and self-awareness
Open the crown chakra
Provide insight into higher spiritual realms (past life regression)
Instil feelings of peace, and promote good decision making

I've been falling so long
I forgot what it feels like to be alright… what does that mean anyway?

Some days are better than others but one thing keeps me here.
How would she feel to find me after days of calls and no answers.
Could I dare break her heart and leave her?

I don’t think it’s selfish to end your pain, I get it. But I hope you have an anchor that keeps you tied to this existence and reminds you that you’re loved 🖤


Please also know that not everyone who is suicidal plans to leave. Sometimes it’s just this nagging feeling of not wanting to be here or as if you don’t deserve to be here. It’s not a cry for attention, we need your help. We need to know you care. We need to know that our darkness, our sadness isn’t a burden.
