I find myself at a loss for words as I stand here at my mother's kitchen island and write this out. I'm just baffled, tongue-tied and all-around confused at last weeks events. Like, I just want to go "this was the worse week ever!!!!" but it wasn't the worse week it was just a difficult … Continue reading There is no backstage crew behind closed curtains.
If you asked me about four years ago, why I would suddenly burst into tears or why I was tearing up, or WHY I was acting so “needy”. I honestly wouldn’t have been able to answer you. I would just say “I’m tired” or “I don’t feel good”. Emotions are just a hair ball, ya … Continue reading Mental illness feels like; random panic attacks.
I don’t know how to explain how I feel right now. It’s not bad, that I can say for sure. I think it’s content? At ease. Relearning emotions has been a challenge for me. What I use to feel when I was significantly (emotionally) sensitive I was in constant flight mode. I was always in … Continue reading #MotivationalMonday, The Bigger Picture.
The more that time goes on the more I understand that I’m ready for anything. I’m ready to defend, I’m ready to advocate, and I’m ready to teach others about the importance of mental health. And I was able to do that for the first time in public while fulfilling a phone upgrade. Now before … Continue reading The best self care day yet.

I'm trying very hard to educate those about mental health and how you can help others. I feel uncomfortable talking about this because it's work related and I … Continue reading Stand up for yourself and others.
In this day in age you can reach anyone at any time. You can share anything at any time and you can reach out at any time. Now that you know the signs on when to reach out to someone struggling let them know that they can call or text someone else if they don't … Continue reading National Suicide Prevention know the resource, share the resource.
I remember talking about this briefly before. It's something that I'm struggling with and just can't seem to look myself in the mirror and just be happy for myself. I had a moment of awareness that I was in denial about being self-conscious. That week really hurt and ended in mixed emotions. And then suddenly … Continue reading Mental Illness feels like, a constant struggle.
From October 1st through the 7th is the dedicated moment to spread more awareness on mental illnesses. NAMI (National Alliance for Mental Illness) will have the campaign #IntoMentalHealth. The theme overall is "Into Mental Health: Inspired, Informed, Involved" where we as individuals, communities, writers, and more come together to health spread more information about mental illnesses. NAMI … Continue reading Mental illness awareness week!
I've been struggling in a way I can't describe. I use to always say "I don't know what I want". And I have a tiny urge to say that now but I can see that it's not that. At all. I have no clue on what's going on, again. I've recently found myself a part … Continue reading You can’t miss something you forgot about.
