I check. I check. I check. I check. It has always been a part of my day. “What are you looking at?” They ask. “Uh, nothing.” I respond. They won’t understand. It’s too much to try to explain. Will people think I’m crazy when I say I just have an urge to check? Will theyContinue reading “Obsessive Compulsive Disorder”
I have met a lot of people who want to take care of their mental health, but aren’t sure where to start. Unfortunately, it’s not something we learn about in school. Even in my AP psychology we didn’t learn how to care for ourselves. We learned about different “disorders,” but never learned how to helpContinue reading “Mental Health – Where to Begin”

I’ve been struggling with anxiety really bad this year, worse than previous years, I think. When I talked to myContinue reading “It’s OKAY to be in a Funk”
Do you ever see those posts about how you should listen to your body? Me too. They’re right, you should. I should, too. But I think people forget how hard that can be. I try to listen to my body and take breaks and rest, but I seem endlessly worn down. My body may beContinue reading “You Deserve a Mental Break”
I discuss weekend anxiety syndrome and what it means for me!
In my last blog I talked about my decision to come off antidepressants for the first time in 2 years. I also discussed how it immediately affected me. In week 2 and 3 I expected some different reactions. I figured my body would start adjusting to the new normal for me, but I also figuredContinue reading “Coming off Antidepressants Week 2-3”
