Last week I was hit with some news that took an overwhelming toll on me. I’m still dealing with it this week unfortunately but that’s ok. Soon I hope it resolved itself. But this post isn’t about the news! It’s about this past Sunday and how I took hours of my free time to just … Continue reading Self-Care Sunday
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.
Right now, I feel like am back in limbo. Where I don’t know how I’m feeling or what I should be doing. Like before, how I would write about me having a to-do list but never did them?? Or how I would fight with myself over what thing I should do to start my day. … Continue reading Limbo isn’t a vacation spot.
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.
If you follow my facebook page, I posted my October goal and task list in hopes to inspire others to outset things they've always wanted to do. For this month we have the NAMIWalks (Oct. 22), and InkTober is upon us as well! It's just so many things going on! Today is my day off … Continue reading October 2017 – week one.

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.
For the last week I've been coming home from work and just having this constant throbbing of thoughts. I'm proud to say I finally have the tools to somewhat silence then. However, they are still an aching annoyance. For example- yesterday. It was my day off, I had planned to do some light cleaning around … Continue reading Mental illness feels like: racing thoughts.
I just wanted to write how I can see how much I've grown over the last 3 months. Seeing myself conquer my thoughts yesterday before going to that interview really makes me proud. And I honestly just feel good about that. I could see myself just setting out of the shower, messaging Kim on how … Continue reading Listening to the easy things vs the hard.
I haven't touched on the topic much about how caffeine affects me while on this medication, and I'm sad to say that I miss coffee!! I get the jitters and I'm super hyper now when I consume coffee. When before I was just another walking zombie with an IV bag attached to me full of … Continue reading After hours; job interview and no coffee!
