I was sitting out on the porch of our bungalow eating my watermelon when I see what seemed to be a butterfly fluttering around. On closer inspection I realized it was a little bat with a bunch of huge fire ants biting him!! He was crying and trembling so I yelled for BF the animal whisperer to come help. He told me to go get some tools so I grabbed tweezers and chopsticks lol. We carefully pulled the ants off- we had to kill most of them as they would not let go of the bat. The bat stayed still while we worked on him and then once he was free he flew around in circles, flying SUPER close to our heads. I think he was thanking us :)
Everything takes so much more energy when you have a mental health problem.
Normal everyday tasks become exhausting as you have to cope with not only what you’re doing but the gremlin inside you.
It’s ok to be kind to yourself and rest, even if you need to rest more often than other people.
