Depression. Anxiety. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Like millions of others, I struggle with mental illnesses. It took years for me to start accepting myself for who I am and realize that I am not alone. I enjoy sharing my stories because I want to do all I can to help others understand that they are not alone and see that life truly is beautiful, no matter how difficult it can get.
I wake up late most days, work regular day hours Monday through Friday, and have very lowkey weekends. Life is simple, but oh wow, life is good. Yes, there are days that I want nothing more than to be alone in my room with the windows covered so no light can get in, but somehow those days remind me how good life really is and how bright my future is. I wouldn’t change a thing (except maybe stop winter from being a thing).
I like poetry. Trader Joe’s Ginger Turmeric tea makes my soul happy. Nothing smells better than lilacs. There is no better way to spend a summer night than by a fire. Bourbon was made to sip while watching a storm roll through. No one is too old to regularly eat Kraft mac and cheese. Technology is cool. Odd numbers. You probably went back to count whether or not there is an odd number of statements.
Until next time!
