The depression that I hate is the depression that comes out of nowhere, and when I mean out of nowhere I am mean it literally sneaks up on you. It sneaks up on you when you are in a peaceful mood doing your normal things. However, the best thing about depression is that it does […]
I have anxiety, this is nothing new. People always wonder why because I always look happy and never panicked. Let me tell you a story…..
I went to the dermatologist today and I decided to dress up since I bought a new scarf and it’s finally cold enough to wear it. As soon as I walk […]
I really love my church! I love it because of the people there; the scripture from the Reverend and the involvement in the community add extra positivity in my life.
The message in the scripture seems to come at me during the right time to help me cope with whatever I may be […]
I wake up, I get my son ready for school so I can go to work.
I get off work, go home to start dinner then possibly squeeze some time in for the gym before its bedtime. Then bath time for Wyatt and have to get him ready for bed. In all of that there isn’t […]
There’s a lot of whining about not having a boyfriend going on on social media every day.
I can’t scroll through 50 posts without a sappy single status or wife me hashtag trolling across my screen. As an insomniac Facebook and Instagram sifter, I’m hearing your pleas, sister. And trust me when I say […]

I was hoping to see fresh produce and deluxe gourmet coffees and the fresh-from-her-kitchen baker’s wares. Mostly I was hoping to get away from myself […]
I decided to join my husbands gym yesterday because 1. I am tired of looking pregnant 2. I hate mood swings and depression and I know exercise helps.
So I get to the gym and I’m already freaking out because everyone there is fit, like where I want to be fit. So we go in and […]
This is what I had for dinner tonight: most of a bag of Goldfish, two smooshed granola bars from God knows when, Ritz crackers, a weird carmel sucker that nearly pulled my teeth right out, and some Sugar Babies candy. I didn’t even know those existed. My daughter’s offering was only slightly better: […]
If you are reading this, not as a individual who has faced these thoughts or who has maybe even attempted suicide, just remember that sometimes the most beautiful people you meet in the world, sometimes the kindest people, the one’s who smile the brightest, are the ones who fight the toughest battles in […]
