This summer and early fall were not a high point in my mental health journey. I was going to a psychologist, psychiatrist, and my family doctor, and still nothing was working. Throughout this whole multi-year journey different solutions have come and gone, but they’ve...

I have been in the workforce for nearly 5 years now. During that time I've had some amazing highs, extreme lows, and an additional mental illness diagnosis. Just like every other aspect of living with a mental illness there is no guarantee of how you're going to get th...

Picture it: I'm sitting at home, self-isolating, scrolling through Instagram and watching The Good Place, and it hits me. A cough. And another. I've been pretty relaxed through all of this coronavirus panic, so at first I wasn't too worried, but then I couldn't shake i...

I can't count the number of times I've heard someone say "I'm just OCD like that" or "She's so bi-polar." And for the vast majority of people who say things like this, I assume they don't mean anything by it. Using mental illnesses as an adjective has become so complet...

Being the super cool 24 year old (and musical theatre nerd) that I am, I spent my Friday night curled up with my cat watching The Greatest Showman. *Side note: I know that this movie has received a lot of criticism, but the music and choreography is amazing* Any-hoo, a...

For as long as I can remember I have been terrified of failure. Whether it was a dance competition, grades, career, or getting into university, if there is a chance to fail there is a voice telling me that that is the inevitable outcome and continues to tell me what th...

Hey all! Sorry it's been a while. I was away on vacation and it took me a minute to get back into the swing of things.

While I was gone I spent 5 days in Florida with 6 other people. While that might sound amazing (which it was), it was 7 people in 1 hotel room for 5 da...
