Since November of last year I have really began to grasp the severity and importance of mental health problems. I slowly became more comfortable discussing the stigmatized subject.

There were so many things I wanted to do in August. Realigning myself whenever the world continues to change is a challenge that cruelly blotted those many things. And now that these funny weathered remaining days of August are slowly coming to an end, I resentfully look back to what I conclude to be another…

I initially created this blog to share my mental health experiences with others. I hoped to seek a connection with others, break the stigma against mental health issues, and start conversations about topics such as self-harm and depression.
