Hey guys! Crimson here. Welcome back to another Let's Talk About Mental Health post! I know, it's been a while since the last one but I just haven't really been up to writing much on the topic. But since this one is a joint post with Megan (which I’m super excited about for that fact… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – The Wonders of Bullet Journals with Megan and Crimson!
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… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – My Path of Recovery with Kristina!
Hello everyone, 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. Progressly, that crisis looked more like a bad dream and… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health – Personality Change Before and After the Crisis with Kristina
Hello ! 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. Something we should all know about anxiety, is that there is no logic to that illness.… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Mental Health: Anxiety-filled moments with Kristina!
Another great post by Megan and one that I super enjoyed reading (OK, I enjoyed the others too but she mentions Skyrim so this gets automatic Awesome points)!!
Video games and really anything that looks or sounds violent tend to have a bad rep with the general public, but Megan shows us that they can actually be therapeutic. I wholly agree!
Time for the third entry for the Mental Health project with Crimson. I know the last one was a bit of a downer but I didn’t want to sugar coat the subject. I promise this a lot more positive.
As the title implies I adore video games. I will admit that I might be ever so slightly obsessed, just a smidge. The thing is a fair amount of my family including my mum claim that they promote violence and blame them for some of my issues such as my lack of sleep.
First off, no they don’t. Just putting that out there, they don’t. When I was younger I was very aggressive and got into fights a lot. Here is the funny part, when I started playing games that had a lot of violence, I started to get less violent myself. I would contain my rage and unleash it on…

And we’re back with another “Let’s Talk About Mental Health” post with Megan from Nerd Rambles!
In this post, Megan talks about stress and school, which is a super relatable topic (unfortunately). Many times we see bloggers take long breaks to focus on school but it’s not just getting coursework done that really burns people out in the long run. Honestly, I wish this problem was addressed more properly by schools
Megan, you’re doing a great job! We’re cheering for you on this side of the world ^^
Part two of the Mental Health Month Project. Heads up, this one is not going to be as positive as the last.
College is a painful yet rewarding experience. For the most part, I have really enjoyed studying this year, making friends and learning new skills. Unfortunately, at this point in time, the stress overpowers the few successes.
This is my second time studying at college. In fact, this very blog was born from a class assignment from my time at the original college. Outside of the friends I made, this little website is the best thing to come out of that college. Let’s just say I don’t have a lot of nice things to say and if you can’t say anything nice, you know the drill.
This time around is far more stressful for me since I ended up losing my chance for University because my graded unit mark…
