    It's overwhelming how overwhelming new things

    can be. I thought I was over my anxiety and depression had left, but I'm beginning to think that they were just hiding, waiting for the perfect moment to come out and wreck my life. I almost started crying. I had a panic attack in bed last night. I almost had another one today...

    Can I Take A Break From Being An Adult, Just A Little One?

    Sometimes the amount of things I have to do seems to be just too much to handle. I try to keep it simple and not have too much going on, but it doesn't work very well. I have also tried organizing aand finding routines, that is not working either. I make lists and I try to get...

    I'm smiling because as I read through our old

    conversations I remember those feelings of security, happiness and belonging. I remember us telling each other jokes, you resting your head on my shoulder, hugging me when I was sad. I remember you saying "I'll always be there for you" and "You're my best friend." I remember our...

    When you asked me if it was "just one of those

    days," I told you no, because I did not want you to see me as weak. As if I had no control over the emptiness covering my brain; that I was losing my mind once again. I didn't know how to explain to you that the thoughts inside my head did not belong to me today, but instead to...

    I Really Do.

    Lately it seems that my life has only been filled with the feeling of being overwhelmed.  I got a good promotion at work, so now I'm a supervisor in a department that although I am familiar with what it takes to do, I am new to this area.  So needless to say...

    I'm taking a full load of classes in addition to taking on a mentoring program. The mentorship demands 7 hours a week, which is actually less of a time commitment than my previous job as a librarian person. But I'm worried that this job will be demanding in a way that being a...
