in Friends,Mental Illness!,Observations

I really do do (heh, do-do) my best to live in the light and in the happy-fun-time of life. Being heavily medicated helps with the mood stabilizations, even if it’s synthetically-aided.

Anxiety and what was I saying?

in Mental Illness!

For the last two+ weeks, I’ve had grand plans of JUMPING! BACK! IN! to my to-do list, my must-to list, and my want-to-do list for today, the first day back to school for my girls. My back to normal. I like normal. Normal is good for me. I NEED routine for my anxiety and for […]
