2013 was a pivotal year in my life:
I married my soul mate, I moved away from my hometown, and I found my passion for teaching.
This year I am continuing on my journey.
My journey of healthy living. My journey to self-love. My journey of being a wife.
I am here to share my experiences with any MilSOs. I can be a shoulder to cry on. I would love to give advice and be here to help anybody who asks. I will listen to any rants.
Any questions I can answer I will.
Lovelies, I will always be here for anyone in need.

Over the last few months, I have turned into the meal-planning queen, and it’s made my life SO much easier. Plus, I’m saving a ton of cash. Yayyy. Here’s some things I’ve learned!

The second time I overdosed,
my body couldn’t handle it,
and I threw it all up.
I texted my dad saying,
“I think I took a little too many pills”.

And every time I’ve overdosed,
I always downplay it.
I’ve always tried to act
like it wasn’t a big deal.

That having the urge to swallow a whole bottle of pills
was something daily that normal people do.
My dad hurried home and saw the empty bottle
and he shook me to make sure I was awake.
I kept mumbling “I threw it up.. I threw it up..”
while I was drifting off to sleep.
He had to wake me up every 15 minutes
to make sure I was okay.

Let me tell you now,
it is a big deal.

The third time I overdosed,
I slept through first and second period
and passed out in the counselor’s office.
I didn’t want to go to the ER.
I just wanted to go home.
All I wanted to do was sleep.
Again, I just said,
“I think I took too many pills this morning.”

The fifth time I overdosed,
my dad found the empty pill box.
I hallucinated, I had a fever.
I couldn’t move my legs.
All I could do was scream,
“Don’t take me to the hospital this time.
I don’t want to go!”

I became friends with a girl who had overdosed
she’s one of my best friends now
and when I heard she was hospitalized as well,
it just makes me realize how real this problem is.

A couple months ago, another friend of mine overdosed.
Do you realize how fucked up it is,
that I’ve done it so many times
that I know the exact procedure that she’s going to go through?
She messaged me saying,
“I took a bunch of pills,
but I just realized I didn’t want to die.
I don’t know what to do.
Help.”

And I’m screaming at her over the screen
that she should throw it up and call 911
because sometimes when someone you love
decides that they hate the world,
that’s all you can do.
You can’t teleport through the phone.
You can’t travel through the internet.
You can’t be there to hold them
and take them to the hospital.

Your love is not charcoal that can
absorb all their poison in their life.
I know, love that you would have done all you could.
Sometimes words aren’t enough.
Sometimes love isn’t enough.
Sometimes a person needs to try dying
to know that that’s not really what they want.
There’s nothing you could have done.
You’ve done all you could.
Just keep loving them.

But you see the thing is,
I got lucky.
I’ve made it back from 5 overdoses
without a scratch on me.
But that’s not always the case.
My favorite teacher’s stepdaughter
locked herself in her room and overdosed.

To this day,
her stepmother still has a scar on her heart.
To this day,
on the anniversary of her death,
her stepmother still stays home from school
on the anniversary of her death.
Her sister is in a bad mental state,
and so is her biological mother.
Her family has fallen apart.

You overdose because you think
you will get a peaceful release from death.
It’s not peaceful.
It is not like falling asleep.
It is convulsions, vomiting,
muscle spasms, fevers,
and sharp stomach pains.

An overdose is not instant.

Hollywood has you believing,
that an overdose
is how a lady should exit the world.
As quiet as she came in,
Peaceful and unnoticed.

You will go out kicking and screaming
and wishing you hadn’t taken them.

I just ran my fastest mile ever! A 10 minute mile! I know that would be considered slow for some people but I don’t care (: It’s the fastest I’ve ever ran and I am so happy! I have been working toward a 10 minute mile for the past few months and I finally did it! (:

The episode that I’m currently watching, this girl, Jesse, wants to meet up with this guy, Robert, that she’s been talking to online. A close friend of hers was deployed in Afghanistan with him. He saw photos of her on Facebook, and that’s how they got talking…

Fast forward to them going to meet….

FAVORITE YOGA POSES AT THE WALL

Using props can be a great way of easing/helping yourself attain a certain pose and it can be wonderful for restorative poses. These are some of the poses I most often find myself doing by the wall:

Forward fold: (uttanasana) This is a great variation because it activated your hamstrings and prevents you from leaning back for further flexibility. It also activates your feet a lot and you can even put weight in your arms.

Squat pose: (malasana) This variation is great for activating the entire back and though some pressure is taken of the thighs other areas are forced activated. It’s great for lower back pain (try sitting against the wall if this is too much for you) 

Lazy split: (viparita karani variation) Favourite pose. Let’s you stay in your split, with ease and comfort (somewhat) The back releases so that it’s the inner thighs that are worked. You can place your hands on your inner thighs for a deeper stretch. 

Standing splits: (Urdhva Prasarita Eka Padasana) This gives the standing legs hamstring quite a pull and is a good way of practicing flexibility for the full pose. There are a lot of variations for your arms, if you place them like I do you can eventually lift that bottom leg right of the floor - activating both legs ALOT. See full post on splits here

Half handstand: (Ardho Mukha Vrksasana) A wonderful pose if your practicing pushing into handstand because you get to push “into the shoulders gradually and eventually you can push of the wall and straddle or pike down (reverse handstand pushup - doing things reversed creates muscle memory for when your doing it the right way, so do it a couple of times. I also find this great for my back and finding alignment for handstands.

Superman pose: (Viparita Shalabhasana) Well kinda. This variation is the easiest of the three shown backbends. Go on all fours. Put your hands on the wall in the appropriate height and let your pelvis sink forward SLOWLY (or you will face plant into the wall, believe me I’ve tried) This is AMAZING on the shoulders and lower back

Superman pose II This is basically just a variation of the former, but activates your thighs and if you push of the wall with your arms - it increases the stretch in your lower back and creates strength in the shoulder.

Locust/pigeon/superman-ish pose (if there is a name please let me know I’ve been searching frantically)  Also a variation of the former where you grab you foot or the belt. This practices the movement of the shoulder that has to “go through” it’s rotation if you’re not grabbing it overhead. REMEMBER both sides. 

Legs-up-the-wall pose: (viparita karani variation) ) Best thing in the world for back pain! This is a restorative pose, and if your feet fall out you can tie them together with a belt. Put a bolster or blanket under your bum if you need to and BREATHE. Even when your feet fall asleep, let yourself go even more and let your back be straight along the floor. 

Please remember to warm up, be safe, listen to your body, be present and cut yourself some slack :) 

As always, don’t hesitate to comment or ask (especially if you come up with a name for the nameless pose) 

Love & light
