Isis Gave Me Eternal Life
Isis gave me eternal life
with the ankh,
and I became closer to her
than I had ever been.
I see her in numbers,
in shapes and shadows.
She is the mother who puts pyramids
in their resting place,
designing space for me to breathe
under the sun.
I am everything she ever
wanted me to be,
dying to wake up in her arms
as she put an end to the chaos
in my mind.
A poem about the Egyptian Goddess. I also updated it.
Reblog this if you think it is wrong to “joke” about suicide, self harm, mental illness, rape, and abuse.

Someone wrote a little story on the wall in the college toilets
"There once was an old man who took long walks on the beach every morning. One day he saw a young man dancing in the distance. As he got closer he realised he wasn’t dancing at all, but reaching down and throwing small crabs into the sea. "Young man, what are you doing?" he asked. "Throwing crabs back into the sea" he replied, "they’ll die if I don’t help them." The old man looked down at the hundreds of small crabs scattered on the beach for miles. "But there must be millions of them," the old man told him aghast. "You can’t possibly make a difference." The young man bent down, picked up another crab and threw it into the ocean. "It made a difference to that one.""
Hi, Id love your advice. I've had problems since I was 14 with self harm, depression and eating. When I was 18 I started getting thoughts that I was being followed and that people can read my mind. I was put in hospital and they were dismissive and dx me bpd. Since then it's gotten worse and I've had really strong delusions and paranoia for a few years. When I was last in hospital I was given the dx schizophrenia. Thing is I don't hear voices or see things, so it can't be schizophrenia surely? X
Hey there. I’m not sure why they diagnosed you as BPD* if you’re having psychotic symptoms. As far as I know, BPD doesn’t include Psychosis. I’m sorry to say, but it sounds like you had a shitty hospital staff that time. As for your last diagnosis, it sounds closer. One common myth about Schizophrenia is that everyone with it has hallucinations. It’s definitely possible to have the illness without them. If you still feel that your diagnoses are wrong, I advise talking to your p-doc (assuming you have one outside of the hospital), because hospital diagnoses can be wrong.
*BPD = Borderline Personality Disorder
when I commit to a person, I FUCKING COMMIT. if their depression, anxiety or life comes knocking, you bet your ass i’m at the door with a double sided axe waiting for a good fight.
you cant expect people, to always be happy, even if they are in love. because life doesn’t stop for anyone. But you can be there for the good fight.
Do you consider yourself recovered?
This is actually a great question. No - I would not consider myself recovered. See, the thing with an illness like Schizophrenia is you never really recover. Recovery would mean not having to take meds every day and see a therapist. And that’s not going to happen. What it really means to “recover” from Schizophrenia: Learning how to deal with it in a way that won’t cause self-destruction. I say I’m not recovered, because I sometimes still have issues with my symptoms. I’m also never allowed to own a gun and I don’t drive yet. I’ve had this illness all through middle and high school, so I think it’s natural that it - along with my wacked out hormones - has caused setbacks. However, I’ve been stable for over a year and I can attend college just fine. I’m moving forward in life one step at a time.
PS: If you want to know more about the nature of Schizophrenia, I highly suggest watching A Beautiful Mind. It’s based on a real person - John Nash - and it’s the best thing I’ve ever seen made about the illness.
