You guys have no idea how excited I am about this month. It’s weird. I already had this plan to talk about mental health in May without knowing it was mental health awareness month, so I was thinking it was a perfect coincidence that things lined up. Now we can get to know each other more closely and hopefully create a friendly dialogue, awareness, and understanding! Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – May is Mental Health Awareness Month!
Good morning everyone,
This wasn’t technically planned, but the idea got me after I read Crimson’s experience in a psych ward, if you haven’t read that one yet- go on and read it !
I think this is kinda important to talk about, specially in this month, because when you are in your darkest place, the idea of getting better is just so irrationnal right ? I mean, the dissociation and mental health itself make you believe you always felt that way; so how can you just STOP feeling like that ??
Trust me, I believed that too at the time. It feels so surreal that it was over 5years ago now… I only hit me that I know how long ago that crisis was, as I’ve just gotten Kafei — he was a puppy at the time (and was a big part of what kept me away from attempting anything) so the oldest he gets, the older it’s been since.

I said I procrastinated on the last post but ok, I lied. I procrastinated on THIS post. This post was much harder to write, possibly because it’s the most recent of the events and I’ve yet to decide how I feel about the whole ordeal. Also, as a warning, there’s going to be some self-harm and sexual harassment talk
On March 20th I went in to see my therapist. At this point, I had become calmer but, in a sense, the only reason I felt better was that I was keeping myself occupied. I had an essay due that night so I’d been working on writing it for a few days now. I told myself that after my appointment, I would be writing it nonstop. Of course, plans ended up changing when I walked in for my appointment and my therapist asked me about the email. I had to bring those feelings and thoughts to the forefront again, which made ignoring them…well, hard Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – My Experience at a Psychiatric Ward
How are you feeling?
Aside from not having any privacy? Having to interact with strangers? The light coming in about every fifteen minutes when we’re supposed to be sleeping? In case something is wrong, safety checks, or whatever they’re called. I can’t go outside. I can’t make calls whenever I want. I’m away from home. There’s nothing to do… Continue reading [NF Drabble] How Are You Feeling?
Talk about procrastination! I knew I had to post this today and I knew what I wanted to talk about but there was something about this post that just bugged me, especially considering its placement this month. In fact, I also considered not talking about this topic but decided against it. One, it would leave a huge gap in the story I’m trying to tell and more importantly, it’s actually the reason why I decided to do this project on my blog. Plus, the point of this project is to talk about the topics that people don’t want to talk about and suicide isn’t talked about as much as I think it should be discussed
The title of this post is pretty much a trigger warning on its own, but yes, there will be talking about suicide and destructive thoughts. This might be one of the darker posts this month Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – Suicide and Existence
As talked about in “Retail & MH”, the degradation of my anxiety started because of a work related problem. My crisis remained for maybe a year until I started getting better with the help of constant therapy for 9months while unemployed, and medication. Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – Personality Change Before and After the Crisis with Kristina
It’s me again with another post about anxiety, for #MentalHealthAwareness Month! This post’s idea is actually one that I imagined a few months back for my own blog, in the middle of one of my panic attacks. Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health: Anxiety-filled moments with Kristina!
