Love, PTSD

In lieu of a Re-run Tuesday, I'm posting about something that strips away my layers and makes me feel raw and vulnerable. I’m working on embracing these feelings and so even though all the alarms are sounding off in my head to keep quiet, I’m not going to. I have a feeling that a few…

Therapy Matters

I think I have figured it out. I mentioned that lately, I've been feeling off. I guess that means I feel like I'm floating and am in fact, not feeling. When I do feel it is a one of overwhelm. I have been scratching my head- so to speak- racking my brain as to why…

Tunnel Vision

Life is weird. I was sitting on my couch with my head back on the cushions and hands over my eyes trying to block out the chitter-chatter happening around me and mulling over some writing topics that I wanted to share this week. I set up my Mental Health Mondays, Tuesday Re-Runs and Thursday Thoughts…

Mental Health Mondays

You know how sometimes things run their course? Like you’ve taken them as far as they can go and continuing the charade would just be redundant and oh I don’t know, embarrassing and annoying to everyone involved? Like hearing about it for the zillionth time would prompt the following Simon Cowell reaction? Well that’s how…

Guest Blog Post: A Rainy Day Story

Alright, this week I thought I'd bring on a guest blogger who is just as fabulous as can be and when I read this post I thought "Everyone needs to read this post." It was originally posted by Wonders of the Woodland which you should definitely be checking out. And also, my nonprofit, Love Will…

Medication Confessional

I'm pivoting a little this week (and don't we love the pivot terminology craze) and talk about mental health in place of Milo. *Gasp.* You know I may have mentioned a time or two that I take medications for my anxiety and depression. As such, sometimes I think that if we were to find ourselves…

Midi-Mark

Okay, some weeks I have everything written and scheduled and posted in a timely fashion and some weeks are like this week. I’m completely flustered and scattered and finally getting my 6 am Milo Monday post up 13 hours later and if I’m being honest I probably won’t get to a Tuesday post tomorrow so…

Thursday Thoughts: Sleep Matters

I have a confession that shouldn't be embarrassing but it is embarrassing. I mean I've spoken about suicidal ideation for Christ's sake but the fact that I, gulp, snore, is, to me, more intimate a reveal. But there it is. I have been living in a fog and impressing my children with my "hardcore" and…

It Matters

*Originally posted on Her View From Home* *Originally posted on Her View From Home* There’s a phrase I use to describe myself on the regular. It may be cliche and overused, but I find that it really captures being human.   Especially a human with depression and anxiety.   Especially a Christian woman trying to navigate through…
