Comfort in the panic, depression and anxiety. The goal each day as I live with depression, is to "get better." However, sometimes, there's comfort in the panic, depression and anxiety. It's what I know. I retreat back into it, because I need to, in order to get through certain things. Sounds bizarre, I know. Trust [...]

Winter depression. It's not all in your head. It's a form of SAD, which is an acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder. SAD can happen during any season, honestly.

By | 2017-02-22T08:14:45+00:00 February 20, 2017|Lifestyle|2 Comments

Music provides therapy for my depression every, single, solitary day. Music. It's been something I've loved since I was a little girl. I grew up listening to oldies stations, as well as whatever was current each year. It was "church" to me. Elvis Presley. Cher. Bette Midler. Sinatra. Whatever my parents loved, we listened to [...]

You've all gotten to know me over the years. I rarely hold back anything I'm thinking, and some have told me I have no filter. Personally, I prefer to live my life knowing I'm speaking from my heart; writing my truth. I come from a place of good intentions, and sure, at times, it might [...]
