My partner knew how hard yesterday was and stepped up - he found an clinic and there was no additional fees to see a physician in person. This doctor was very kind and funny, he cracked a joke about his advice to do physical activities, talked up how great running is and slid in that he does not run. It was nice that he listened to my struggle to find medical support and he suggested that I just keep returning to his clinic. So I think I found somewhere I can feel like I am being heard and I feel like I could find progress in healing with that support.
WHAT SUPPORT LOOKS LIKE HERE
Every evening, Kirk takes me for a coffee date and he purposefully drives by our new apartment so I can look at our balcony on our way back home to Kate's place. We're moving in just a little less than 3 weeks into our new home. I'm excited for the next part of our story. Our relationship has a strong, unique bond. He wants to love me so much that HE LEARNS MY LOVE LANGUAGE AS I GROW. He has learned so much on how to be a wonderful support person for me and what I need. It's not easy. We both fail sometimes at this. We just try again. We are very open and honest and it took forever to build this level of intimacy but the building blocks started being place, February 1999, when Kirk was brave enough to ask the sad girl at a coffee house for a seat at her table because he wanted to try to cheer her up. I love him because he always tries.
"I have Fibromyalgia - thank you for being considerate," diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in 2018, I am still struggling to understand my illness and learn to cope with my pain.
In spring 2022, I was diagnosed with chronic depression, c-PTSD and Borderline Personality Disorder. Everyday was yesterday in my mind & in the flashbacks I was routinely suffering through. Three months after my second suicide attempt, I moved to a new community to begin my healing journey.
is an homage to my favorite childhood book series, Martine. I love the symbolism of the hot air balloon that I, Mallory, am navigating life with chronic illness while on a healing journey.
