Medication Generation

Some people think that depression is just a “trend.” That it’s become not only mainstream and acceptable to say that you have depression, but that it has actually become cool. One quick scan of Twitter will reveal that half of our feeds are covered in jokes and memes about being depressed.

A (Colorful) Life Update

Hello, Friends & Followers! If you’re reading this, it means you haven’t given up on the blog even though I’ve been such a slacker about posting.

Sick & Tired of Being Sick & Tired

I’m sick and tired of being sick and tired. Sure, that’s a line from a 2000’s emo-pop song. But it’s also the truth. I’m 26 years old, but sometimes I feel like I’m 100. I am perpetually exhausted.

Kissing Frogs

Yesterday, I treated myself to a massage. Well, that’s a stretch…it was free at my gym because I referred a new client. But, let’s pretend that’s something I could afford to do on a whim. Anyway, it was amazing. I have decided that insurance companies should cover massages like they do a psychiatrist visit. Not […]
