#StillTalking Medication: It’s Okay to Change Your Mind

#StillTalking Medication: It’s Okay to Change …

Making the decision around medication is complicated, to say the least. And making the decision to stop (safely, of course) and try life without something that’s been a part of your life for a few years can be even more so. While I’ve been thinking about this, I quickly realized I didn’t have a lot of people in the same boat to chat with. I can vividly remember (mostly) every detail of the appointment I had with my doctor when I approached the subject…

Home By Nine: Helping Provide Therapy and Fighting Mental Health Stigma

Home By Nine: Helping Provide Therapy and …

There are, for better or for worse I can never decide, a lot of brands around these days that throw ‘anxiety’ on a t-shirt as a way to fight mental health stigma and carry on. So it was refreshing, to say the least, to happen upon Home By Nine because they’re doing a lot more than most. More Than Just a Trend I’ve talked about this time and time again – anxiety isn’t a trend. Depression isn’t. You don’t have OCD because you love…

I Have No Idea How To Talk About Mental Health Right Now

I Have No Idea How To Talk …

I have been starting and stopping this post since the end of March. And it’s now June, in case that I hit trash again before publishing this. And when I started writing it, it had no mention of COVID but the more I think, the more that feels like ignoring the elephant in the room. [Note: it is now the end of July – let’s see how this goes.] I have, over the last year or so, found a sense of pride (if that’s…

I Lost My Shine & Here’s How I’m Getting it Back

I Lost My Shine & Here’s How …

You’ve heard me say it time and time again, 2019 sucked. Major. And it wiped my shine way. What does that mean? Going off of my beloved Grey’s, I file myself under dark and twisty, and bright and shiny. And a lot of the times, I’m bright and shiny. I like to shine, I’m meant to shine, and I want to show the world my shine. And 2019 tarnished me. I mean if we want to get very specific, the end of 2018 sucked…

Taking Back My Love Of Restaurants + Fall OOTD

Taking Back My Love Of Restaurants + Fall …

I love food, always and forever. But up until recently eating out at a restaurant wasn’t an option. Okay, if it was an option it was one that I met with heavy resistance and avoided at all costs. And when events had food? Pass, always. Maybe nibble on a veggie or two, but a polite decline to every passed plate that came my way. Toronto has a lot of restaurants to offer, and here I was always going to the same chain locations over…

From Pharmacy to Felix: A Modern Take On Prescriptions

From Pharmacy to Felix: A Modern Take …

This post, and the social media posts that relate to it, have been sponsored. I am, when it comes to talking about medication, pretty lucky. I have always been supported by my family and my doctor. But I say lucky because that isn’t always the case. Even right now, when I feel like my medication isn’t helping me as it should, I know I can call up my mom and let her know. I’m still trying to sort out having my doctor in Midland…

#NoFilter: Social Media & Mental Health

#NoFilter: Social Media & Mental Health

I have been, and will always try to be, candid about mental health on my blog and on social media. I would like to think it helps with stigma, but more importantly I’d like to think that reading my rambles might be helping someone else.
