    Depression, Not A Dirty Little Secret

    The other night during the Grammy’s, Demi Lovato was up to sing and had to restart the song because emotions took over. The song that she was performing, Anyone, was written 4 days prior to her overdose in 2018. A comment was made, “I don’t understand why they have to keep talking about it. Can’t we just let it go already?”, and this struck a nerve. My comment back was, “Depression is not discriminatory. It can take hold of the rich, poor, famous, black, white, young and old. It can be expressed in many forms and we definitely need to keep talking about it”. The lyrics in Demi’s song were…

    I Don’t See You

    To the mom that ______, I don’t See you   So many posts these days that have “I See You” and this may make me a bit unpopular but, I don’t See you.   I don’t See the struggles you face with depression or anxiety every day because of your situation.   I don’t See the difficulties of having a child with special needs.   I don’t See the woman that has spent countless hours injecting herself with what she is praying to be her miracle to conceive.   I don’t See the mama that is with the love of her life in the NICU, praying that she will get…

    What Does Your Name-Tag Say?

    There are so many names we can be given and give ourselves. The positive names are what we strive for and what God wants for us. The negative names are what we get when we take control and put God in the backseat. I personally have been guilty of this several times. I get it in my head that I can do a better job and navigate life without his help. This is when my life gets out of balance. My relationships begin to falter, depression sets in and doubt takes over. At times it takes me a minute to figure out the missing piece, God. When I do have…

    Postpartum What?

    Okay ladies and gents it is a topic no one wants to talk about but it is a fact of life and it happens. If you have been following my posts you will know we are now home with our lil one and attempting to adjust. Of course we were both sick when we came home but that passed after the first week or so. Around week two is when the real fun begins! See I am by nature OCD. I am a counter (literally have numbers running in my mind all day) and things have to be a certain way or in my mind the world is pre-apocalyptic. So…
