Anxiety, Depression, Mental Health, Stress


I need more sleep. I always go to bed late because it’s finally quiet at night, with everyone sleeping. The only time I have to myself is at night, so despite feeling tired, I stay awake watching my shows or if I’m anxious, I stay awake mindlessly scrolling tiktok. I wake up exhausted, with headaches… Continue reading Exhausted

Good Night Anxiety

I pray the thoughts slow down as you settle into bed, Your worries quieting down, as your head hits the pillow Body sinking into the mattress, breathing, gentle and rhythmic Eyelids closing as you leave this day behind, Dreaming of smiles and adventure, calm and tranquility, fully enthralled in this unfamiliar feeling. Good night Anxiety,… Continue reading Good Night Anxiety

The Moving Pictures: A Poem

Time passes by like a thief in the night, as my mind continues to conjur up vivid scenes of all types I lay in bed, summoning sleep, as my mind segues from angry concocted fantasies to sorrowful  fictitious daydreams Time is passing by still, as my heart  attaches itself to the turmoil brewing in my… Continue reading The Moving Pictures: A Poem

Always End the Day With a Positive Thought

I know how difficult it can be to feel positive after having dealt with anxiety, for most of the day. It's easy to climb into bed cursing yourself for being "weak" or "not good enough". I for one, can lay in bed for a while, replaying things I've done or said and wishing I could… Continue reading Always End the Day With a Positive Thought

My Blessing: A Poem

My Blessing As I lay me down to sleep, I thank the lord, for my boy, so sweet. I'm blessed with silly faces and laughs, squeals and giggles from tickle attacks. I'm blessed with tantrums and pouts galore and it makes me love him forevermore. Butterfly kisses and Eskimo ones too, My love for him… Continue reading My Blessing: A Poem

Breaking Stigma

This was my 1st ever blog about Anxiety. This was the pivotal moment where I let the world into my life. This is when childhood friends and even family found out what was actually happening in my mind and in my heart. This is when people started writing me, telling me how they had NO idea I suffered from anxiety and when they opened up to me about their mental health issues. This is when I realized that I in fact, am very brave and that I was making a difference 🙂.

The Anxiety Chronicles

Hi everyone!

As you may know, in our society there is a stigma attached to mental health and the medications provided to help. Because of this stigma, it’s difficult for people to speak of their anxieties, depressions, etc. They feel embarrassed to be open and forthcoming to family & friends. Now, I’m not saying this is true for everyone. For those of you who aren’t afraid or embarrassed, kudos to you! For me, I still get a bit embarrassed to speak of my anxieties, but I’ve decided to tough it out and share with everyone, what I’ve been suffering with. So here goes…

For those of you who don’t know me, I have suffered from anxiety for close to 15 years. In the past I suffered more from social anxiety. I had difficulty going to crowded places, participating in class speeches or projects or just meeting new people. I was…
