What I’ve Learned From a Year in NYC

I’ve been living in New York City for a full year. I never thought I’d say that! Well, that’s a lie. When I was younger, I always imagined that I’d move to NYC post-college and live out my fashion dreams. But once I graduated, I wasn’t so sure about it. Mostly, I didn’t know how […]

Let’s Talk Diabetes

A couple of weeks ago, my therapist asked me if I wanted to discuss my diabetes. She noted that when we first met, I mentioned that it was—obviously—a huge part of my life and therefore had a huge effect on my anxiety and depression.  I told her that I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to […]

Can Heartbreak Be a Good Thing?

Heartbreak sucks, obviously.  The name alone describes an injury to our most important organ.  And it doesn’t just describe pain from the end of a romantic relationship. It can mean the dissolution of a friendship, an estrangement from a relative, the loss of a job, the diagnosis of an illness…the list could go on forever.  […]
