I mentioned in my last post that my husband and I were in the process of renovating our bedroom – something I have wanted to do for over a year, but was a less-urgent project that we would ‘get to eventually.’ Well, ‘eventually’ finally came! Check out our latest project – our DIY master bedroom renovation! Continue reading “Making a Safe Space: Our DIY Master Bedroom Renovation”→
Hello! I know I keep saying that I’m going to be more consistent at blogging and apparently failing at that…so, I’m sorry! Just when I think my life has settled, something happens once again (I guess that is just regular life though, right?) Continue reading “Life Update: August 12, 2019”→
I recently heard about “Spring Cleaning” for your health – and to be honest, I wasn’t exactly sure what that meant. Turns out, it could mean two things; spring cleaning your brain (as in, working on ways to ‘clean’ your mental health) or it could mean actual cleaning – like your house – in order to help you feel better. I’m going to focus on the second of these two options. Continue reading “Spring Cleaning For Your Mental Health”→
Although this quote about is a ‘travel quote,’ I think it works so well for those of us journeying (get it?!) with mental health issues.
Over the summer, I took the tiny step to simply talk to my doctor about an anxiety clinic I had heard about from someone from my church.
And that turned into a referral to the clinic, a consultation, two months of CBT, psychiatrist check-ups, which helped give me the courage to go through with other medical tests I needed to get done.
I never thought that step would actually lead to anything. I’ve seen so many doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and specialists over the years. Nothing changed. But this time, it did lead to something – my own journey of a thousand miles.
Aside from my recent ranty post about Bell Let’s Talk, I haven’t blogged in almost 6 months. There are a few reasons for that, aside from writer’s block. First, I was re-evaluating what I wanted from this blog.
Hey everyone! I have some exciting news (well, maybe only exciting for those of you that are also dog-lovers) – but I have been working on a little side project for a few months now…and I have finally launched it!
Max & Olive is my new blog dedicated to helping other dog owners learn more about dog behaviour, training, and life with a pup. This is NOT replacing I’m Fine, Stop Asking! This is just a way I can continue writing about something I am passionate on a platform that makes a bit more sense (writing my dog-related posts on here always feels a bit off to me)
So, if you are interested in following my dog adventures, head on over to Max & Olive to see this new project! If you don’t care at all about my dogs – that’s okay, don’t worry, I won’t be offended ;)
This past week(ish) has been the week of appointments. In total, I had four. FOUR medical appointments in less than a week. I had a blood work (AH!), a (very long, very extensive) ultrasound of my entire abdomen, my first appointment at an anxiety clinic (more on that later), and a follow up with my doctor. What a week it has been. Continue reading “Blood Work and Ultrasounds and Therapy, Oh My!”→
