Let me try and contextualize it for you.
My mind often times feels as though I don’t know which way is up. For so long it has been a constant state of panic that truly the smallest thing would make me lose track of my thoughts and myself. I would forget where i just put things down, wouldn’t be able to concentrate on a task no matter how badly i wanted to, and eventually tried everything to simply not even engage with thoughts because they always concluded with a critical view point on myself.
But while all this was happening the only feeling i could ever express was, “ i feel bloated.”
I felt my depression in my gut. and sometimes i have days when i still do. it’s taken a lot of hard work to sift through what’s an actual physical feeling I’m having, and what is a destructive thought that i am having and how can i reconstruct it. guys, the mind gut connection is REAL. and it can work against you, but we are here to make it work for you.
