Shaky Mental Health

***WARNING: SENSITIVE CONTENT/IMAGES. VIEW WITH CAUTION. 11/06/2019-Ongoing These past two or so weeks have been tough. And honestly, I have no idea why. I am thinking either I am just extremely exhausted (Working 40 hours a week, school ending etc). Another thing is, I haven’t skated in over a week because of the injection procedure. So…

Learning About Myself

So, to conclude Mental Health Awareness Week (Even though we should be following through on this daily). I wanted to give you guys a follow-up on some things I have went through, how they are impacting my mental health and what I am doing to fix them.  First thing, I realized about a year ago…

Mental Health Writing Exercises

A few weeks ago I went through a really dark phase. One that I needed to open up to a few close friends in order to find myself help. In that time I was also given exercises in order to work my brain and try to clear out some thoughts. So I want to post…

Chronic Pain and Mental Health

  Chronic Pain takes a toll on the body. However it takes a toll on the mental aspect as well. So not only are you in pain, and suffering other related symptoms to your illness. You start to suffer mental symptoms as well. Now, to be clear, it won’t be everyday that the symptoms appear….

Mental Health Week

So this week is Mental Health Week. I will try and do a few things this week in order to support and have others be aware. Today is just a brief update. I have seen a psychologist, psychiatrist and psychotherapists over the few years. Right now is when I need one the most. This week…

Insomniac Zombie

  Good Evening…or Morning…? So it is close to 1am and I am still nowhere near sleepy. Instead, I feel like I’ve been hit with a frying pan and slowly becoming a zombie.  This is the second night IN A ROW… I have been suffering from insomnia. While last night I wasn’t doing much. Instead…

Drained.

  So, I have been drained lately. If you read my previous post (Bursting Sponge) you would know. I don’t know why that is. It could easily be the pain taking a toll of my body. Or finals approaching. Schedule changes. Even a mixture of all the above. There is one thing that has caught…

Bursting Sponge

    This week has been a brutal week. I’ve been absorbing everything like a sponge for too long and I finally burst. There was a while ago when I brought up the topic, “Depression, Suicidal thoughts without wanting to harm.”  This is still the case but the intensity of wanting to self-harm has been…

Blindsided by a Nagging Injury

Why yes, it has been forever since I have updated. Basically since the site showed my last school assignment. While I hope you all can forgive me, I still feel like I have to give an explanation about my whereabouts. While, I am not comfortable and/or ready to get into the details about this injury….

Easing the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (also known as PTSD) is a disorder I never knew I could relate myself too. However, after a massive incident, it forced me to realize how real and how critical this mental disorder could impact someone.
