• I'm trying

    Currently on antidepressants to deal with the anxiety. No difference so far (day 4), and having some side effects. Hopefully will see some light soon as I'm willing to stick to them and give them a chance. Although I've thought about leaving my part-time job to focus on my mental health. Not sure if I should do this or not, feeling really conflicted right now. But I'm trying.

  • I Wish

    I wish for the future that I will not feel stuck in this mindset that I have for 6 whole years now. To not panic or feel nauseous whenever I develop feelings for someone. To actually be able to enjoy life with someone else and to eat around them without a single worry. I wish at some point I will find love and be able to enjoy it to its fullest, whether it lasts or ...

  • I can do this!

    I go back to uni today! I’m determined not to let my aniexty get the best of me. I will be alright. Last night, I was overthinking and sinking into old habits of negative thoughts and excuses. But today, I will be fine. I have to tell myself this, what other option do I have? I will get up, finish packing, pray I can get the last bits in the car, say goodbye to siblings ...

  • Things that make me happy... don't always work.

    What makes me happy? Well... how long is a piece of string? The answer... Long or short. There are lots of things that make me happy, but that's all well and good when we're in place that stress, anxiety and depression cannot touch us. I love to read and write it gives me great joy, but that doesn't work when I'm having a reading dry spell or writer's block hits me. I've begun at least ...

  • It happens sometimes.

    I am confident in my own worth and then I forget who I am. My value, my goals, my talent, my love all worthless without self belief. The things that I love I’m uncertain of, can I really write? Am I a good mother? Am I a good girlfriend and friend? Am I really good at my profession? Is my perception completely off? Do people actually like me? Is my poetry all that good? Always ...

  • There is Freedom-Reach Out-Ask for Help

    I remember how hard the struggle was to admit I had a problem. My pride and delusional thinking always wanted to overpower the reality. My alcohol use was numbing my pain. Flowing through my bloodstream like a vicious cycle of raging vengeance that gave me a fearless feeling of confidence and strength. When the alcohol wasn’t present, the reality set in. I was sad, depressed, and fucking hopeless. I felt like a worthless piece of ...

  • What Worries Bob The Most.........

    What Worries Bob The Most...... ....is the struggle between his holistic happiness and his absence from the world of full time work. Will he find peace in the end ? His happiness has been anchored in an ever deepening prayer life. Something he trusts . Deeper than the affliction itself. Causing a reservoir of happiness.
