An long overdue honest update

An honest update on me:

Hey everyone, I know it’s been a while since I have posted. I am back and I am going to *try* to post weekly or every other week. So just know that I am busy with college but I will always continue this blog because I love you guys💗💜❤️🤍

News from the doctor:

For the past few month I have been having symptoms of PCOS so I was diagnosed with PCOS by my OBGYN last week. I also got bad news about my liver. Even though I said before that I got good news on my liver. It turns out my latest lab work about my liver is horrible. So I am having another liver ultrasound tomorrow and getting labs done tomorrow. My doctor believes I have a rare form of arthritis or I may have a liver disease. So yeah keep me in your thoughts and prayers💗💜❤️

Mentally:

Guys, it’s bad. I am very depressed to point where I am now having suicidal thoughts. (I am safe and it’s just thoughts). I have been depressed for months and yesterday I just finally started having suicidal thoughts again. So I am bad again. I am seeing my therapist this week and maybe even call my psychiatrist. But I know what my psychiatrist will say I need to go to a mental hospitals. (I will NEVER go to another mental hospital again because I went four different times and hated it). I am taking care of myself so that’s good. I am just bad again. So I am just going to keep going. I am still functioning very well. But I still I feel awful.

Physically:

I am in so much pain all the time. I am having to wear my tens units a lot more. I am just struggling physically. Going to college full time is exhausting and I am just hurting a lot.

I am making it. I will always keep going but this is the reality of living with mental and chronic illnesses💗

How to have peace

How to have peace❤️💜💗

Verses: ‘You will keep in perfect and constant peace the one whose mind is steadfast [that is, committed and focused on You—in both inclination and character], Because he trusts and takes refuge in You [with hope and confident expectation]. ‘

Isaiah 26:3

How to have peace.

So I am sure you are wondering? How do we have peace Caty? I know right now in the days we are living in, peace feels impossible. But it’s not! Peace doesn’t come from the world, true peace only comes from Jesus. So how do you get peace from Jesus?

1. Seek God by praying for peace, worshiping Him, listening to Him, and reading His word daily!

To be honest with you, I haven’t been reading my Bible everyday. Lately this semester of college has been so tough and I have had so much homework. But today I am making a commitment that I will pray and read my Bible everyday. Because the more we seek God by reading His word and praying, we will be able to build a close relationship with God. The Bible says the more we dear near to Jesus, the more He will draw near to us (Psalm 125:1-2). So we will be able to have a close relationship with God, and that is the best relationship we can have.

2. We have to fix our thoughts on Jesus.

This step is probably the hardest because we have to think about what we are thinking about. Then we think thoughts that are lies from the Devil, we need to stop thinking that thought, and think about what Jesus says about us.

Here is what Jesus says about us:

You are beautiful. (Psalm 45:11)

You are unique. (Psalm 139:13)

You are loved. (Jeremiah 31:3)

You are special. (Ephesians 2:10)

You are created with a purpose. (Jeremiah 29:11)

You are cared for. (Ephesians 3:17-19)

You are lovely. (Daniel 12:3)

You are precious. ( 1 Corinthians 6:20)

You are strong. (Psalm 18:35)

You are important. (1 Peter 2:9)

You are forgiven. ( Psalm 103:12)

You are protected. (Psalm 121:3)

You are chosen. (John 15:16)

You are mine. (Isaiah 43:1)

Whenever we think: “I am not good enough.” We need to think about how we are good enough in Christ. Post that list on your bathroom mirror if you have to. But remember that in God, you are loved (Jeremiah 31:3) and cared for (Ephesians 3:17-19).

3. We have to put our trust in God.

In this step, you have to surrender EVERYTHING to Jesus. You surrender all your: thoughts, fears, worries, doubts, anxieties, dreams, hopes, and your life to Jesus. You complete surrender all to Jesus. How do you surrender all to God? By trusting in Him. You trust in God by believing in His word even when you are going through storms. You trust in God’s goodness even when nothing in your life is good. You believe in the cross and that He died and rose again. And you believe in His promises:

God’s promises:

God will love you forever. (Psalm 136:1)

God will never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)

God will comfort you. (Isaiah 49:13)

God will help you and always be there for you. (Psalm 121:1-2)

God is always faithful. (Psalm 33:4)

God keeps His promises. (Deuteronomy 7:9)

God is good. (Psalm 31:19)

God will draw near to you. (Psalm 125:1-2)

You can do all things through Christ. (Phillpians 4:13)

With God on your side, you can do anything! (Matthew 19:26)

God has an amazing plan for your life. (Jeremiah 29:11)

God is for you and on your side. (Psalm 118:6)

God is all around you. (Psalm 125:1,2)

God never changes. (Hebrews 13:8)

How do you find peace in God?

1. You seek God daily.

2. You fix your thoughts on Jesus

3. You trust in God and all of His promises

Prayer:

Dear God,

I pray that as I seek you daily, fix my thoughts on you, trust in you and all your promises, that you bless me with your peace. Help me know that even when my circumstances aren’t good that you are still good. Help me remember that even when I don’t feel you that I know you are there. I put my faith, hope, and trust in you. I surrender everything to you. I pray you grab my hand and help me every single day of my life. I pray you never leave me. I pray you help me with whatever I am facing and that you bless me with everything I need. I thank you for your goodness, love, grace, and mercy. I thank you for being so good to me. I love you Lord. I praise you for you are my King!

I thank you for all my many blessings and for Your Son.

In Jesus’s name, I pray, Amen!

Daily life

I’m bad again…

Hey everyone! Welcome back. I hope you are having an amazing Father’s Day, here’s an update on me:

**trigger warning: talk about suicidal thoughts****

Mentally:

I am very depressed. Last night I started having suicidal thoughts. Ugh. I thought I was just depressed because of my pain but it’s more than that. I believe I am chemically depressed because all I could think about last night was death and laying in bed all day. It’s bad. It’s really bad. But I am safe. I do not have a plan. I just have suicidal thoughts. I am talking with my psychiatrist this week so hopefully we could change some of my medicines. I will just keep going. I promise you all I will not harm myself and I will never ever give up❤️

Physically:

Ugh so much unbearable pain. The pain is constant and never goes away. I am losing hope that I will ever feel bad. I just hurt every single of everyday. I am exhausted and in so much pain.

Good new: I am on a new medicine for my fibromyalgia, I see my pain doctor in one week, and I talk to my psychiatrist this week as well.

I promise you guys: I am safe. I will not harm myself. I will keep going and I will not give up❤️💜💖

Thank you all for listening. I love writing to you all every week. It’s nice having a safe place to talk about how I am really doing💛

I am depressed and in unbearable pain

Hey everyone! I am back! I am sorry it’s been so long since I have post but here I am, and here is an update on me:

Mentally:

I feel depressed (again). I believe it’s chemical this time because I have been feeling depressed for months but now I believe it chemical so I will message my psychiatrist to see if we can change some of my medicines. I know with my physical pain being horrible as it has been that doesn’t help. But yeah I feel depressed again. I just feel empty, numb, and sad for no reason. So yeah. But hopefully I will feel better soon with the help of my doctor.

Physically:

Unbearable. I have been in a flare for the past few days. My pain has just been unbearable. It’s killing me. It’s exhausting and ugh I hate it.

Good news:

I have another pain procedure on Tuesday it’s like a nerve block but stronger so that should help for a few days. Then if that is successful I will be another procedure where the doctor will burn my nerves. So I am hopefully that these procedures will help❤️💜💖

I am sorry if it sounds like I am complaining. I am not I am just stating how life really is when you live with constant chronic pain and mental illnesses.

Thank you for listening! I will try to start posting weekly again❤️💜💖

I love you all!❤️💜💖

I’m exhausted and in unbearable physical pain😪

Hey everyone! Welcome back! I hope you have had a wonderful weekend. So here some good news first:

I had a good weekend! One of my best friends came over and we had an amazing time. Today I actually went to a store since Covid-19, I got my cat some toys so hopefully he likes it. So it was a really good weekend❤️💜💜

Bad news: my pain procedure that was planned for today has been canceled due to my insurance not approving the procedure in time. So I rescheduled and will have the procedure in two week.

Mentally:

I have been up and down. But as you all know I am a Christian but I have been struggling with my faith. So that’s been really hard on me mentally. I depend on my faith in God and lately I just haven’t had strong faith. But I am working on it. So that’s good but it’s a process. Honestly I think my faith isn’t as strong due to how much physical pain I am in due to fibromyalgia. So I have been feeling down and depressed. But I am hanging in there. It’s been tough but I am making it❤️

Physically:

Ughhhh been its been unbearable. I was in a flare all last week and it was horrible! Today I am still hurting pretty bad. Honestly I am so exhausted, hurting way to much, and just wish I was better already. It feel like my pain just keeps getting worse and worse. I have had to stop doing some chores because I physically can’t do them anymore. It’s tough to stop doing thing because you physically can’t. It’s been horrible but I am pray this pain procedure in two week just really helps.

Thank you for listening. I am sorry if it sounded like I was complaining. I really wasn’t I was just sharing the truth about living with all my illnesses. I want to be honest with all of you❤️

Daily life

I am making it, day by day💛

Hey everyone! Welcome back!❤️ I hope you have had a wonderful week. I do have some good news to share:

Good news: my procedure I am done (which was a branch block which is like a nerve block but stronger) it was a success!💛 my pain was gone for a whole day and one half of a day❤️ it was sooo nice not hurting😍 so now in two weeks I am having that same procedure done. Then if that works my doctor will do a major procedure where they burn my nerves. So I am very excited and scared at the same thing😬😅

Mentally: I have been up and down. Mostly down. I have just been feeling pretty down and depressed since my physical pain has been come back and been horrible. But today I have been in a great mood which is awesome❤️💜💛 I am just taking it, day by day and just keep making through each day💙

Physically: since my pain has come back it’s been awful. It’s been unbearable these past few days. It’s been raining and rain always makes me hurt more. But today my pain is better so that’s good. And soon I have my second procedure. So even though the pain, there are good things coming❤️💜💖💙💛

Even though it’s been tough lately. I have been making, day by day. I will continue to make it, day and day❤️💜💖💛💙
