Don’t Cry Over Burnt Bacon

BurntBacon

Hey everyone, I’m back from my temporary settling-into-my-new-house-trying-not-to-have-a-mental-breakdown hiatus! I’ll be back to posting once a week now, and here is an update on my life. As you can probably imagine from my title, I did just cry over burnt bacon and I’m having a bad day.  Continue reading “Don’t Cry Over Burnt Bacon”

Three Years Ago; One Week From Now

Three years ago I thought I was going through the most stressful time of my life. I thought I would barely make it through March. I wanted to quit school and skip town. I wanted the year to be over with. I wanted to “fast forward” to the future.

Hey World!

I have no hesitation in sharing that anxiety in school has been one of the biggest challenges in my life so far. Exam pressure on top of general and unbearable anxiety isn’t ideal, and the teachers don’t really seem to understand student mental health in modern society.  Continue reading “GUEST POST: Dealing With School Pressures”

When I told the world – or, my 300-something friends on Facebook – that I have bipolar disorder, I got a lot of similar comments.

What Is Emetophobia?

What Is Emetophobia?

What is emetophobia? Emetophobia is the phobia of vomiting. I was diagnosed with severe emetophobia at just 8 years old – so yeah, I have a lot of experience with this often debilitating phobia. Although there is SO much more information about emetophobia now than there used to be (there’s even a Buzzfeed article on it! Like, what!), it is still a relatively unknown disorder.

Since I talk about my experience with emetophobia so often on my blog, I thought I would create a “what is emetophobia” resource page in case any of my new readers don’t really know what I’m talking about.  Continue reading “What Is Emetophobia?”

“Don’t Go To Flo”

Don't Go

Last January, almost exactly one year ago, I did something I never thought I could do. This ‘something’ may sound silly, and maybe even a little bit pathetic to anyone who has never experienced an anxiety disorder, but today is Bell Let’s Talk Day. And since today is all about ending the stigma of mental illness, I’m going to talk about one of my more embarrassing anxiety moments.  Continue reading ““Don’t Go To Flo””

Top 5 Games For Anxiety and Depression

Video Games

If you haven’t already guessed from reading some of my previous blog posts, I love video games and always have. However, my love for video games is pretty …specific. (For example, I can’t play any first-person shooters because they make me nauseous!) Anyway, I’ve noticed that in times of stress, I often come back to video games as a great distraction. Now, I’m not recommending you develop a video game addiction (which is a real thing, by the way) but coping strategies are fine. And video games have become a pretty big coping strategy for my anxiety and depression.  Continue reading “Top 5 Games For Anxiety and Depression”

When Everything and Nothing Matters: Dealing With Anxiety & Depression

EverythingandNothing

In order to write this blog post, I have to write about something I’ve been avoiding talking about. The next transition. It’s not even a bad thing – actually, it should be exciting. So why don’t I want to talk about? Mostly because the more I actually talk about it the more real it will be. The more I’ll have to update you. The more people I’ll have to tell if things don’t work out. But here it goes. Continue reading “When Everything and Nothing Matters: Dealing With Anxiety & Depression”
