Close call.

That terrifying moment when you’re on your way from your doctors to renew your prescription of anti-depressants/mental checkin..and you see your mom on the intersection.. (Back story to this is I’ve been hiding my depression from my parents since like 2007 ish –long story) [ I moved out on my own in October and have finally been able to deal with everything that I’ve been working on hiding all this time] So to see her there I panicked and I ducked out of the way and begged the divine intervention for her not to turn around (I guess she was going to the dentists or something)


Kinds of Love

Just going to leave this here because I think it is incredibly cute. It's the little things that show love not the big flashy things.

I know.... I know...I've majorly failed in keeping up to date with this journal. I haven't even been writing in my written one either. I know it's an excuse that I don't have the time to just sit and write. Because truly it's bullshit that I can't "find the time."

I guess it's just because I've been trying to keep up with things from day to day. Most days I'm busy and I spend my days at the office as that's where I am currently. And then when I'm not I try to make it so I don't have a quiet minute with myself because to be honest, my mind hasn't been all that good. For the past maybe two weeks or so I've been getting bad to the point where I've been wanting to hurt myself. But I've been keeping myself at bay. And also as bad as it sounds...because Molly and I wrestle and she lightly scratches me as we hold on to each other. So I am still harming myself vicariously through something/one else. Which isn't good.......but .....yeah... Seeing my doctor next week so we'll see how that goes.

I am who I am because of the choices I made yesterday. -Eleanor Roosevelt

This year has definitely been a year of ups and downs. But you know what? I made it through it pretty well and I'm getting myself back on track with taking care of myself and that is the most important thing :)
