It’s irrationally difficult for me to accept that I need medication.
It’s pretty simple: Turn the Golden Rule back around onto you.
There are critical issues in my life that need to be addressed first. I need to eat well. I need to take care of myself. Once I’ve done these things, I can take care of my son. Then I can take care of my work. Then I can take care of the house.
Let me tell you a little something about ten pounds, random person who doesn’t know me but thinks I need to lose weight because I am a female on social media.
Don’t make self-care the frou-frou thing we so often pretend it is and push it lower and lower down your list of important things to do.
