Sayonara, 2018, you prick.

I’ll be honest with you, a couple weeks ago I wasn’t sure I would make it to the end of this year. My existence this end-of-year has been damn rough and I went to bed on more than a couple nights hoping I wouldn’t…

It’s a Trauma Itself, Really

This past Thanksgiving, cleaning turned out to be more of a chore than I expected.

Saturday Share: Back on an Upswing

I told my therapist on Thursday that I’m having an upswing–feeling good, getting things done. She calls that “the And place.”

Thankful Thursday: Mental Health Help

Overwhelmed

On Wednesday, I went to a Galentine’s party with a girl I met at church, Alex. I forced myself to go because I’m trying very hard to meet new people and step out of my comfort zone. It was definitely out of my comfort…

Short and Sweet Mental Health Update

Last week was pretty good to me, in terms of my depression and anxiety not being total a-holes. Part of that, I think, is that school has kept me busy. I haven’t really had time to dwell on the negative stuff. So, that’s good!…

Just stupid little depression things.

Contrary to popular belief, I am trying very hard to be optimistic. In general, I’ve been doing okay. My sleep schedule is semi-on-track, which is good. I’m excited to start school next week (okay, “excited” is a strong word; I’m ready to start school…
