Sweater Weather Tag

1. Favorite candle scent? I am usually a huge fan of floral scents, but in the past few months I have really been craving woody, spiced candles. As you would probably expect for a winter tag!   2.

Mental Health Mondays: Mental Health is Hard

Specifically, mental illness is hard. Like, really hard. Why's that, I hear you ask. Because you're sick. But you're sick without any of the sick people benefits.

Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist

Long story short, the Prozac has not worked. 24/7 leg cramps that made it incredibly painful to sit or stand or move or lie down put an end to that one. When I went to see my GP she didn't really know what to do with me, and I was so scared that she was… Continue reading Mental Health Mondays: Seeing A Depression Specialist
