A Girl and Her Cat

When I moved out of the apartment my ex and I shared in February, I worried about my mental health. I had never really lived alone up until this point.  The closest I came was during my last two years at William & Mary where I had a single dorm room where I was also... Continue Reading →

Election Anxiety

I'm pretty numb today. After months of slowly building anxiety--chest-tightening, tears to your eyes, can't breathe kind of anxiety--I held this hope that it would finally be okay to breath out again.

The Night Before a Depressed Christmas

  'Twas the night before Christmas, when all thro' my mind Not an emotion was stirring, not even one kind; The stockings were hung by the chimney without care, With little hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there; I wished to be nestled all snug in my bed, But visions of disappointments danc'd in...

Your Own Worst Enemy: Thoughts on the Suicide of Robin Williams

  I know what it’s like to want to die. I know what it’s like to be depressed. I know what it’s like for everyone to look at you and say “But how can you be depressed? You’re so happy and funny and have so much going for you!” So I feel comfortable saying that... Continue Reading →
