Exposure Therapy: A Visual Representation
When we avoid situations because they cause us a lot of anxiety or distress, thinking about or even finding ourselves in these situations will cause our anxiety to raise sharply, then stay on a high level for a little bit, while slowly decreasing gradually over time.
Tumblr media
If we didn't avoid these situations and just did them anyways while sticking with them, then the first time we do it will be the worst. Every time after that, we'll find that we won't be quite as anxious as the previous time, and the anxiety we're dealing with will start to pass a little quicker than the previous time.
Tumblr media
Exposure Therapy allows us to decrease the level of distress we experience over a period of time. This helps us to overcome our fears and anxieties, one step at a time. To learn more about Exposure Therapy and the steps it entails, click here.

I fucking hate my life. Being bipolar sucks and its worse when no one even tries to understand it or what you are going through.

I just calculated the calories in my meal and it was 130 cals and I kidd you not, I got so scared like I was thinking that that's too many calories and I shouldn't eat that much.
And I know this shouldn't be normal but I can't stop doing that is like engraved in my brain

Day 6: Q
These dreams have been intense... They are so convincing. 
I was hosting a party of some sort, and had introduced myself as ‘Moira Rose’ -- If that name sounds familiar, it’s because that’s the name of one of the main characters in the award winning show, Schitt’s Creek. 
My hair was blonde and up in a pin-up style. My form was slender, far thinner than I am currently. The dream sort of comes together as a series of flashes of imagery. In one of the scenes I’m wearing a short orange housecoat and just stepping out of the shower. As I come around the corner of the room someone was in my house and I begin running and somehow manage to tackle a male and female to the ground. 
The scene fades to black and when everything comes into perspective again, I’m standing in line at the courthouse, looking for my name on a list -- My name wasn’t written as Moira Rose on the list, though I don’t believe it was my name either. 
Suddenly, myself and some other girls are dressed in orange, and being led down a stark white hallway. We round the corner and come through a pair of doors which open up to a gymnasium sized room full of cots and incarcerated women. 
As we pass by, the women in various stages of bed making, watch us curiously. Among the crowd of new faces, I recognize a girl I was friends with in high school. The guard leading us meets with another guard on the floor, who begins leading us to our assigned beds. We are told it is quiet reading time and to stay in our cots. 
Rather than read I decide to try and sleep. I could feel that I had a bit of a headache and when one of the guards passed by, I started to ask her how I could get my hands on some tylenol, but was interrupted by her questioning me as to whether or not I smoke. I answered, and then got my chance to ask. 
What stood out to me was that when I asked for the tylenol, I told her it was because I had stopped taking Buprenephrine and was experiencing a headache as a result. 
This stood out to me because... I don’t take Buprenephrine. 
In any case, I put my head down on my cot and started thinking about all the things I’d be missing by being in jail. My kids will be missing their Mother... I didn’t get the carpets shampooed like I’d wanted.... I have 23 chicks due to hatch next week and have to get their enclosure ready... My husband was going to be so disappointed... And God I will miss sex. 
I drew a deep breath and opened my eyes, and quickly realized the change in scenery. I was in my bedroom. I had been dreaming. 
I cannot begin to express the level of relief I felt, realizing I was not in jail.

 felix  has  pretty sever  ptsd  that  only  gets  worse  as  time  goes  on.  it’s  particularly  bad  right  after  the  five  year  time  skip  and  (depending  on  if  dimitri is  alive  or  dead)  eases  some  once  the  war  is  over  and  he  has  the  time  to  actually  process some  of  his  trauma.  his  ptsd  exacerbates his  worst  personality traits  but  by  no  means  excuses  them. 
some  of  his  symptoms:  
intrusive  thoughts/memories
emotional  distress  at  triggers
physical  reaction  to  triggers  (fight or  flight)
hallucinations  (minor)
negative  thoughts  about  others
difficulty  maintaining  relationships
detachment  from  family and  friends
difficulty  experiencing  positive emotions
emotionally  numb
self-destructive  behaviors  (on  the  battlefield)
irritable  &  angry  outbursts
needlessly  aggressive  
 he  aggressively  hides  his  intrusive emotions/memories  and  tends  to  put  that  negativity/anger/fear  outward onto  others.  he’s  constantly  on  edge  and  reacts  to  the  slightest provocation.  his  father and  dimitri  get  the  brunt  of  the  lashing  out,  though  if  he’s  triggered, it  doesn’t  matter who  you  are.  he’s  distant from  anyone  who  knew  him  at  the  time  and  is  slightly more  willing  to  open  up  to  newer  people,  though this  is  still  always  a  struggle.  his  self  destructive behavior  presents  mostly on  the  battlefield where  he  throws  himself  into  dangerous situations.  he  occasionally hallucinates  glenn,  either as  he  used  to  be  or  as  he  was  dying.  (which makes  him  not  only  a  dick  but  a  hypocrite.)
 bipolar  tends  to  run  in  the  family and  dimitri  comments on  felix  becoming ‘more  like  his  brother’  so  I’m  pretty sure  glenn  also  had  bipolar. felix  has  bipolar 1,  which  means  he  has  true  manic  episodes  as  well  as  hypomanic  and  depressive  episodes. pre-skip,  because  he’s  a  teenager, he  has  a  lot  more  rapid  cycling. which  means  his  mood  is  almost  entirely unpredictable.  as  an  adult,  his  episodes  tend  to  last  days  or  weeks  rather than  hours  or  days.  he  also  gets  mixed  episodes on  occasion,  which  takes  aspects of  both  manic  and  depressive episodes.  
jumpy  &  weird
increased  energy  &  agitation
belief  in  his  own  superiority
decreased  need  for  sleep  (energy)
racing  thoughts
poor  decision  making
frenzied  activity
low  mood
suicidal  ideation
loss  of  interest in  activities
decreased  ability  to  sleep
feelings  of  worthlessness/hopelessness
 felix  doesn’t  realize he  has  a  problem.  in  his  mind,  everything  he  does  is  correct  and  everything  he  feels  is  just  normal and  how  everyone feels/reacts.  the  only  exception  is  the  hallucinations,  which  he  ignores completely.  this  is  part  of  the  reason he’s  so  vicious to  dimitri.  a  lot  of  it  is  projection  of  his  own  issues  that  he  refuses to  process.  he  has  a  bad  habit  of  staying awake  for  days  on  end  and  then  crashing  for  18  hours. the  longer  he’s  been  awake, the  more  irritable and  jumpy  he  is.

Hi :3 I'm Saturn, and among my many mental illnesses, I have bipolar type 2, so please ignore edgy comments and stuff I make during depressive episodes - I'm usually fine a few days later <3 Thanks for the concern, though!

One of the hardest things about living with depression is being okay for a while but then when you feel yourself on that downward spiral you don’t want to say you’re not fine because you were strong last week

I want to be effy from skins type mentally ill,
Romantically sick, sneaking out to parties having the time of her life, beautifully trying to khs, and smoking cigarettes elegantly.
Instead I’m scream crying in parks because I want to die, cutting myself till I pass out, bleeding out in the shower, physically unable to do any personal hygiene, shutting myself out from friends, being disgustingly mean when I’m angry, having permanently shaky hands, taking over 10 pills a day, smoking cigarettes to calm myself from a panic attack, ruined family relationships, scars all across my arms and legs, hospital admissions, screaming in public because I’m in a hypomanic episode and I want it to stop, three appointments a week, and that is just the beginning.
The reality is ugly, it’s gross, it hurts and it’s painful.
Mental illness is the furthest thing from pretty.

Is it just me, or did anyone else get mocked so much for being emotional as a kid that you learned to hide it and feel ashamed when you can't?
I even get secondhand embarrassment now when people show intense emotion.
