Broken Toes, Ear Infections, and 2018

Broken Toes, Ear Infections, and 2018 - Anxiety Blog Post

As others started the new year off with resolutions and hope, I started my new years off with antibiotics and an ear infection. Yay! Even as I write this, I can’t hear anything out of my left ear. Though I’m not big on new years resolutions, I sort of had a new years revelation this year.  Continue reading “Broken Toes, Ear Infections, and 2018”

My Top 3 “Self-Care” Methods

3 tips for (1)

Everyone seems to be obsessed with “self-care” lately – not that I’m saying it’s a bad thing or anything. Still, I am a bit skeptical about what self-care really means to some people…a lot of people work an insane amount of hours and never get enough sleep and eat terribly but that one bath bomb a month with a glass of wine…that’s self-care?  Continue reading “My Top 3 “Self-Care” Methods”

Thank You!

This past week, I reached over 500 followers! I just wanted to thank everyone who has ever read a post, shared something on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, commented, or participated on my blog in any way. I have had this blog since 2013 and boy have things changed!

I used to be terrified, and maybe even a little ashamed, to write about my struggles with mental health. This blog has helped me in so many ways, from learning to be okay with who I am, to meeting so many other AMAZING people who not only understand what I’m going through, but have offered me advice and love and support along the way.

Thank you everyone! I probably would have given up blogging a long time ago if it wasn’t for this amazing little community :)

Lately, if you’ve noticed, I have written almost exclusively about anxiety.  Continue reading “Life in General”
