Anyone else with ADHD (and depression/anxiety) have any good resources or tips for building routine and structure for yourself? Covid/quarantine completely fucked any semblance of order I had in my life and I am struggling to stick to any sort of schedule or find motivation to work on things at home.
I am in the process of finding a new therapist since mine transfered during covid so I haven't gone to therapy in about a year now but need to find something healthier coping mechanisms until then.

I will get hate for this, but please hear me out first. Yesterday, an innocent black man named Duante Wright, was killed by the Minneapolis police. I am so ashamed. I am also so scared. I support Black Lives Matter all the way, but it’s hard on your mental health when your dad is a police officer and you live in Minnesota. I’m so scared for the black community, and personally, I am also scared. My dad is a great guy, who would NEVER kill anyone. He would never even THINK about killing anyone. After reading this, you can unfollow me, block me, whatever it is. We need justice for what has happened to that poor guy. I’m scared that if the riots get bad, my dad might potentially die. He is currently down in Minneapolis helping with these riots. This is very contradictory of me, I know, but as much as I support BLM(which I support with all of my heart), I also want my dad to be safe. It’s hard hearing all these ‘abolish the police’ and ‘ACAB’ sayings when I know my dad is not a bad person. That’s biased of me though. I understand if you need to block me because you don’t support what I am saying, I just needed to get this out there, since my anxiety has really gone up over all this. I want to try my best to be as good an ally as I can be to the black community.
BLACK LIVES MATTER! THIS HATE NEEDS TO STOP!

Post-Breakup Thoughts
It’s been over 3 months since my breakup with someone who I thought was the love of my life, and I gotta say these have really been a transformative few months. It’s been long enough for me to really see the relationship with perspective. I idolized him and thought he was the solution to all of my problems in life. We got together right after I left a pretty abusive relationship and he put back together my self-esteem, which my previous ex had shattered to pieces. Still, I felt beneath him despite how many times he told me that I was perfect. I thought that he was too close to perfect (I don’t believe in true perfection) for me to ever deserve and that was a toxic mindset. I loved him so, so much but tore myself down in comparison to him. Over time I’ve come to see more clearly his flaws and mistakes. I see that he was much closer to being as flawed as I am than I’d thought; his flaws were just different than mine, and less aggressive. I still love him, but I don’t want him back. 
I keep remembering things I said to him in moments of anxiety and I wonder how the fuck I treated someone I loved like that. The answer seems to be that I wasn’t taking care of myself. I was neglecting my own mental health and putting it all on him to fix, especially throughout 2020 as I isolated myself from everyone except for him. I am at my worst as a person when I’m depressed or anxious; my depression makes me irritable, whereas my anxiety makes me lash out from fear. Since we’ve been apart I’ve taken it upon myself to take responsibility for my own health and make the changes necessary to how I live my life. I’m miles from where I was at the end of our relationship, and I’ll keep taking responsibility for myself so that I never end up putting so much on another person again. That’s one of the reasons I don’t want to get back together, despite still loving him. I fear that I’d just fall back into old habits, which were bad for the both of us. 
Sometimes I still get sad, but for the most part I just feel free. I felt like I kept having to duct tape our relationship back together, but that he wasn’t putting in effort to keep us together. I also kept sabotaging our relationship because of my own insecurities. I no longer feel like I’m constantly trying to hold everything together (myself or my relationship) or like I’m striving and failing to be worthy of someone. I feel stronger and more independent than I have in years.

People want to improve mental health by exercising, but stress and anxiety get in the way
People want to improve mental health by exercising, but stress and anxiety get in the way
New research from McMaster University suggests the pandemic has created a paradox where mental health has become both a motivator for and a barrier to physical activity. People want to be active to improve their mental health but find it difficult to exercise due to stress and anxiety, say the researchers who surveyed more than 1,600 subjects in an effort to understand how and why mental health,…

I'm considering journaling my "issues" through the days. Sometimes I feel neither my therapist or my psychiatrist understand what I'm trying to say. I don't know, but there's this feeling of loneliness that never change... otherwise, people keeping putting my illnesses in a place where faith will solve all my problems and this is overwhelming. You don't say to a person with a physical disability that only praying will heal them, so why does my disfunctional brain will be okay by asking God to "fix" it? Why? Why is it so hard to believe that I'm sick? Maybe for the rest of my life? Why? Do I need to bleed again so you will believe?

I always think I’m super lazy and don’t actually have anxiety but every time I sell something to someone locally and have to talk to them or be around someone I get super anxious and feel like throwing up the whole time and then the SECOND I’m on the way back home I feel fucking amazing and fine and great
literally no matter what I do, how I think or distract myself I’ll always get sick as fuck

My darling is a bit odd. Complaining that we aren't intimate anymore (we're in a ldr so usually we will video call when 'fooling around') but when I ask her to tell me if she's going to do it, so that I can help, she will usually tell me she's not in the mood or was already done. Even when I tell her about mine, she just goes "okay" and doesn't message until I tell her I'm done.

A word that triggers me the most is ‘Should’
You should do this. You should do that instead. You should think of doing it this way. You shouldn’t do that. You should do what I did. You should do something else.
It’s a key word that someone uses for unsolicited advice where they are essentially discounting your boundaries and individual thought in favor for what they think is right.
It’s forcing someone to have to justify themselves and the decisions they make when it is NO ONE ELSE’S BUSINESS.
Respect people’s boundaries, y’all.

I'm very grateful to have a very understanding wife. I have been absolutely mental this last year as new anti-depressants have had some rubbish side effects. I have been suicidal, miserable and grouchy. Since coming off my medication, I have been feeling much better.
She has taken all of my bad moods and has surprisingly still supported me. I feel extremely lucky to have someone who has just been silently yet solidly supportive. I don't think I could've lived with me for the last year!

for some reason if i imagine everyone as anime characters i get less socially anxious.
like if i were to talk to a group of people and know that they are irl, i feel extremely scared and anxious but if i imagine them as, you know, anime people then im not scared at all and id probably saunter over without a care
like i know i dont have a problem talking but when i get anxious i become a babbling fumbling idiot so yeah i really hope this trick works. im gonna test it out.
this is so weird though. wth is my brain.

Today feels like a new day for many people in the UK, April the 12th, the beginning of the easing of lockdown. Shops are open, we can enjoy food and drink in outdoor spaces and the streets are generally abuzz with activity. Things are finally getting back to normal. Or so it seems. Amongst all of the people so excited about life beginning again, there are some who are feeling very differently. Some who are feeling worried and anxious about what should be such a hopeful time. It is no secret that the Covid-19 pandemic has caused mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety to come to the forefront of so many people’s lives. There are those who never even knew what mental illness was before this past year affected and changed us in so many ways. A lot of people are talking about and it is an extremely important conversation to be having. Unfortunately, not everyone is so willing to talk about it. There are those who think mental illness is a shameful thing and such a taboo subject that it is easier to ignore it totally. I am, of course, talking about the Indian community.  
I have suffered with anxiety and depression for most of my life and walking around today, amongst the hustle and bustle, made me feel anxious. The only reason I did not have a full-blown anxiety attack was because I have learned coping mechanisms to deal with my illness. I take medication, I read books around the subject but, most important of all, I talk about it because I am not ashamed. Mental illness is not something that defines me, it is simply a part of me and it is also a part of 1 in 4 people around the world. As I was walking down the high street, doing my breathing exercises, I observed those around me, in particular, those of the Indian community. I kept thinking, “Am I the only Indian who is fighting with mental illness? It affects 1 in 4 people so surely, I can’t be. But, if I am not, why do I never hear Indian people talking about it?”  
The answer is shame. Mental illness, along with sex, rape and many other topics, just make up the long list of taboo subjects in the Indian community. They will use all their energy to protest against Netflix and Amazon for the content of their Indian programming that they find so offensive but they refuse to look at what is happening in their own community, their own family and even in their own house. As an Indian, I find it appalling and downright ridiculous. The list of mental illnesses is an extensive one and the list associated with sufferers who die from suicide is shocking. The Indian community needs to open their eyes and their mouths so that we can help those who are fighting by allowing them to speak up without feeling judged.
I went through life dealing with mental illness on my own until I spoke out about it and am happy to say that today I have the support of my family and friends. Not everyone will understand and believe me, there are those who I have told who have turned their back on me but they are people I don’t need in my life. They are people you don’t need in your life. 1 in 4 people suffer from mental illness; it could be you or someone you are close to but if you are a member of the Indian community, I urge you to speak out. I urge you to tell your story and get the help you need to keep on fighting.
I created IFMI – Indians Fighting Mental Illness so that we can share our stories, so that we can support each other and so that we can connect as a community in a meaningful and powerful way. I fought by myself for a long time and this project is to make sure no other Indian has to fight on their own. Let us stand together as one voice and say, “I am an Indian fighting mental illness and that is nothing to be ashamed of.”

Bad day today. Tense, anxious, jittery, unable to concentrate and back pains as cherry on the cake. It had been a long time since it happened last, that kind of bad day. And it's certainly not a photo that I would have posted before. Not because I'm ashamed but because I felt like people would think I'm just whining.
When I started having anxiety issues I tended to not really talk about it. I was ashamed. Thought it was a weakness, a vulnerability. Now I've accepted it. It's annoying but I'm way better than I was a few years ago so... It doesn't mean that my anxiety is not present though. Sometimes I have bad days.
I don't know why today turned out to be a bad day. Nothing happened. Maybe it's just an accumulation of little things in the past weeks or months... Who knows.
Anyway, I digress. The point is: don't be ashamed of your bad days. They exist. Denying it would just be counterproductive.
So if you need some times by yourself to relax, cuddle with your pet (or a plushie if your pet is not with you, which is my case...), listen to music, read something that you like - or do anything you want really - take it. Pushing yourself on and on won't do you good.
Anyway, that's it. That was my wisdom of the day 🙂

This Is What I Hope I Remember
This Is What I Hope I Remember
Lately, I have been thinking a lot about all that has happened over the past year. Where we were a year ago. What I was thinking. How I was feeling. The anxiety that could overwhelm in a second and send me to my room in tears.  I felt anxious. A lot. I felt anxious for my parents. Anxious for my children. Anxious for my husband. Anxious for myself. For my friends. And my extended family. For my…
