I am struggling. I've kept my boundary firm - no contact, let me just tell you my inner child is screaming at me that this is all bad. My adult self says boundaries are healthy, grief is okay, feeling the grief is okay, letting go is okay, waiting for a genuine apology is fair, if it never happens the apology that is well my adult self is proud that I'm in therapy, that I started a new med and I increased another for my PTSD, anxiety, and chronic depression. It's okay if I do feel my feelings and they make me down, feeling my feelings is healthy.
I have to start psychiatry soon to get my meds all changed around. I've been losing a pound every other day for the past 4 months. Stress is my enemy, it drains me of my energy, life will get better.

A "máquina" humana é tão perfeita que ela tem a capacidade de se consertar quando algo não vai muito bem com ela. Nosso organismo está sempre buscando uma forma de reequilibrar as emoções, bem como suas questões físicas. O fato de não vermos e muitas vezes não sentirmos esse processo acontecendo não quer dizer que não esteja ocorrendo. Em algumas pessoas, essa capacidade de autorregulação está comprometida, isso ocorre pelo simples fato de que somos diferentes um dos outros e somos impactados de forma diferentes pelos desafios naturais da vida. É nesse momento que buscamos ajuda profissional, para resolvermos o que nosso organismo não deu conta sozinho.
Com o Brainspotting conseguimos ensinar novamente o nosso organismo a fazer a autorregulação que ele já sabe, mas não está conseguindo.🧠 Agende uma sessão! (21) 96767-4030 Somente WhatsApp.

Testing nerves during reconstructive surgery!
This patient got half of his right arm cut off in an accident. The surgeons were able to reattach the bones and soft tissue but before reconnecting the nerve endings a clear identification was necessary. This was achieved with electrical impulses to the nerves.

One side effect I know a lot of us experience from psych meds but so often don’t speak about is the impact on our sex life. My medications rob me of sexual desire. Emotionally I want sex but I struggle to become aroused physically. I can go a long time without thinking about sex and then it only pops in my head to think about how much I miss the intimacy. My antipsychotics also cause drownsiness so often once I take them sex is off the table. 🍆 .
How do my partner and I counteract this We make time for romance and extended fore play sessions so that I can actually get in the mood. We make time for each other. Full stop. We are also mostly physical in the mornings when night time meds have worn off (this kid of happened by accident but it is a handy tip) I’d love to hear your tips for maintaining physical intimacy whilst on medication! ❣️
You can be a woman and a mother and feel incredible in your own skin.
You can feel alive and buzzing with life force energy.
You can be orgasmic...full of ecstatic pleasure.
You can have intimacy with your partner where your needs get met, your desires get honored.
You can inspire in your partner ways of being with you that you never imagined them capable of.
You can watch as your sense of power + pleasure feeds other areas of your life...your mothering, your work, your creativity, your voice, your wealth.
Yes, you're that powerful. I know because I've done it and I've supported other women in doing it.
Want to know more I'm opening up five spots in my premium 1:1 coaching program, The Turned-On Woman, in the new year and I'm scheduling discovery calls now to spend some time talking to you about your current experience + what you desire.
I'll be offering these calls and enrollment in the program until mid-January or my 1:1 coaching spots fill, whichever happens first.
If this resonates with you, please don't wait. I know the holidays can feel chaotic but I promise you this time we spend together will feel like a huge respite in the storm.
Comment below or DM me for more information.

I finally finished this awesome workbook and let me tell you what, it was really awesome! So much information, tools, techniques and advice on how to work through some of the hardest parts of experiencing Complex PTSD. It really narrows it down to healing Avoidance Symptoms, Invasive Symptoms and Depressive Symptoms. It also breaks down trauma and how it effects the brain and body. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in healing from CPTSD.

I’m catching up on a bit of work and emails and then will be re- watching 3 more episodes of game of thrones cos that’s my guilty pleasure and escape. Not so guilty though because I deserve it ✔️✔️✔️ Happy Monday - hope you have a lovely week.

I tell my students about the first time I tried yin yoga a couple years back. It was in a class with a teacher who didn't speak much during the postures and didn't play music that day. I'm not gonna lie, I was screaming in my head because I was so agitated at holding passive postures for 3-5 minutes with silence and my own thoughts and emotions bouncing around in my head. Nothing wrong with this style, it just was too advanced for me at the time.
. . .
I fell in love with the practice when I took from a teacher who talked about neuroscience and philosophy throughout the class. And played music! . . .
Now my style of teaching yin is similar to hers. I echo quotes from Bernie Clark (one of the founders of the practice) and use my knowledge as a therapist to talk about how down-regulating postures calm the central nervous system doing as we make sure to never move into the zone of pain but stay within a threshold of safety physically, mentally, and emotionally. We talk about how the patterns we create in yoga practice can help pattern the rest of our lives. . . .
And, as class draws closer to the end, the instruction and cueing slows to a trickle and the students get to enjoy the quiet music as they have hopefully been able to move more into a state of meditation. . . .
If this resonates with you, join me for Yin Mondays at 7:30pm and Yoga for Stress Relief Wednesdays at 7:30pm weekly @simply_yoga_vancouver.

How apropos. I got this tattoo 3 years ago broken hearted, from giving my energy to the wrong person. Fast forward 3 years, I got it touched up last night so it pops like my others, and here I am healing from yet another heart break. The lesson learned Stop giving my time, love and energy to those who don’t appreciate me. Often I feel women love the idea of me, but don’t want to do the work to understand I’m only human w my own traumas and demons in my closet. Yes, I’m far from perfect, but I’m open to learning from my past, taking that knowledge and evolving. This time I’m learning to give my self the love I so effortlessly give everyone else. I’m digging deep and facing these things in order to break this cycle I keep finding myself in. Time to LOVE me 🧔🏼❤️🤙🏼 #self #love #dig #deep #grow #past #trauma #childhood #relationships #overcome #hurt #pain #elevate #evolve #peace #love #gratitude #present #heal #open #mind #heart #tattoo #ink #nyc #latergram #timeflies
When the world says, “Give up.” Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.” So often we are the last hope for those with Chronic Health Struggles. We want to remind you to never give up. There will always be Hope. 🌟
Trauma can be losing a loved one, a car accident, divorce, abuse, combat, an unhealthy job environment, etc. It’s anything that occurred once or was prolonged that created a high level of distress or feeling of being overwhelmed. When the brain is forced to process stimuli all in one gulp, it can become overloaded, and therefore memories are frozen or unprocessed in the brain. These memories are then stored in the limbic system in an emotional format. This is why you may continuously struggle with feeling anxious, fearful, angry or depressed, developing beliefs that you aren’t safe, powerful, or capable. When something triggers you, it’s not necessarily causing the memory to resurface, but more those intense feelings that are stuck (ex: startled and afraid). This can make it difficult to live in the moment because the brain/body is always on guard trying to protect itself. This is when seeking therapy can be helpful, allowing you to reprocess and heal from the initial trauma. Allowing your body to relax and be at ease. #trauma #overwhelmed #survivor #neuropsychology #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #emotions #copingskills #emdrtherapy #emdr #counseling #therapy
The trauma in your experience will forever define you.
You have the choice to take advantage of it for the better and stronger you.

Awesome, 📸 thanks to: @motonomadic from @thegaiagang // @mymuselingerie F*ck it Let’s Dance show this September.
Chainsaw accident. No bony or tendon involvement. No foreign bodies. Irrigated copiously. Repaired in the ER. Actually a lucky guy.
Generally a wound like this should be repaired as soon as possible. The longer it remains open and untreated, the more bacterial colonization and the slower wound healing. There is a dogma that wounds like this should be repaired within 6 hours but more recent studies have not supported this as a strict cutoff (with no higher incidence of complications at 18 hrs) There is also no evidence that sterile vs aseptic technique reduces infection risk in management of contaminated wounds.
Bony, tendon, and nerve involvement don't generally affect acute management in wilderness settings, but it's important to establish a baseline to measure changes.
Arguably the most important thing you can do is cleanse the wound by removing devitalized tissue and copiously irrigating to remove/dilute bacteria contamination. Potable tap water is just as safe as sterile saline. I recommend getting a large syringe and an 18g needle. This is sufficient to generate around 8psi, though a squeezable bottle with a hole in the cap works about as well. Ideally you're going to irritate with more than you think you should. Use at least 1L unless the wound is superficial and not grossly contaminated.
Cleanse the outside of the wound with iodine, povidone-iodine, etc. NOT the inside of the wound. Doing so impairs the healing process.
What would you use to close this wound After care What would you do in major hospital vs austere environment
