I have been diagnosed with MAJOR depression since i was in the 6th grade. I am now 16.When I tell people this, they are shocked. Its most likely because I admittedly do not look like the girls on Tumblr or in crappy young adult movies who has dyed hair and wears plaid and has something very obvious pierced. Though, those girls are just as valid as I am in my apparent sadness, I am admittedly a tad less obvious. I have made this because my shrink says I need to express my feelings to people such as “your friends or family”. As helpful as that is, my (ex)best friend and I had a major falling out. The reasons don’t matter now and we just weren’t good together (AKA yes i blame her she was unhealthy af). And with her went some of my closest friends. The worst part? I am not a loner. Oh no I am considered ‘popular’ and do have a lot of ‘friends’ but we aren’t close and now that summer is here I am lonely and I’m bad again. So, what now? I have no idea. Isolation is nightmarish and I hang out with my 65 year old grandpa almost all the time. What can be expected of this little blog? Things I think and do and want to do. Lists and theories. It’s like a public diary. I’m publishing this here because I’m aware little people will see it and maybe that brings me comfort. And maybe if you do see this you may feel a little less weird or alone or anyone of those wonderful feelings that come with this dull mental illness. This won’t be a self pity party but i will express my frustration AT pity received when my brain comes up in a casual conversation. So its a big ol’ plate of nutty with a dash of pity on the side.

When it seems the empty "hole in your relationship" can no longer be filled with risky behaviors, realize that there are coaches who can help you figure out how you need to relate to your spouse and the tools necessary to rediscover healthy intimacy once again.
We can actually change what we believe about ourselves. If I believe that I am not important and that what I say does not matter, then everything that I do and say will demonstrate that belief. It is possible to learn to think positive, healthy and realistically positive thoughts about yourself.
I believe in wellness. I believe in living a healthy lifestyle. My journey into wellness and the healing arts started by necessity fourteen years ago when I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. I have personally discovered great value in applying the wisdom derived from our ancestral heritage.
It’s my belief and experience that among all of our deepest desires is the longing to be fully seen, validated, and loved, when all the masks are taken away – for who we truly and authentically are. I view the role of therapist or life coach as the mirror that reflects the light within. In our darkest hours, it can be difficult to see ourselves clearly, to find the path hidden in the seemingly impenetrable forest of grief, despair, anger, or loneliness.
