On Friday night, after publishing a post that I was really proud of and thought would be really helpful to others, I received my first hate. It came in the form of a comment that said, in essence, that I shouldn't be calling myself an army wife if my partner and I were broken up.… Continue reading My First Hate
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.

Being so sleepy makes my life really hard at times. I have to ration my energy… Continue reading How I Keep My Energy Up
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
