Mental illness feels like; sleepless nights

As I’m typing this, I’m cautious pacing between the dinning room and the kitchen. I’m subconsciously making my way to the living room as well, which I didn’t know until now. The television is on and it’s agrivating to me. Like my nerves are stretched so thin, I feel as though I much just punch … Continue reading Mental illness feels like; sleepless nights

Mental illness feels like; random panic attacks. 

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. 

Mental illness feels like; late night anxiety. 

Earlier today I was told a comment that destroyed my day. It took me my whole day to shove that comment down and tell it to fuck off.  Sadly, the beldam wanted to fight. Today she didn’t even knock at the door. She crept through the unlocked secret window. I should have locked that damn … Continue reading Mental illness feels like; late night anxiety. 

#MotivationalMonday, The Bigger Picture. 

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 best self care day yet. 

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. 

Stand up for yourself and others.

I'm happy I was able to finish up my Suicide Prevention posts before September ended. It meant so much to be, due to the stigma surrounding it. 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.

Woebot, the new mental health tool!

I was browsing twitter (great habit huh) the other day and I stumbled upon this post about a bot, that is designed to help you through some rough times. The creators are very strict about the fact that Woebot is not a therapist, and is not a substitute for your mental health care. I was … Continue reading Woebot, the new mental health tool!

Why I do, what I want to do; About me VLOG!

Hey guys! This isn't that far in depth about my life personally, just some moments I had that really impacted me. And I wanted to share that with y'all. I will produce one about my depression also, but since my anxiety was a big part of my life I just had too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6N_zPoQwyzc   My … Continue reading Why I do, what I want to do; About me VLOG!
