First things first, the blog has officially broken 100 followers! I know, to some it may not seem like a lot. If you were to ask me when I started if I’d ever even break 50 followers- I’d tell you probably not. So to hit and break 100 is an amazing feeling. I truly get a rush of joy with each new subscriber, each like, each comment. I love interacting with people on my blog.
Today is Talkative Tuesday, and I have quite a rant that I’ve been holding in for a while. Everything wrong with Rory Gilmore.

Okay, so I know I just posted about social media and how it can feel like people are either bragging about their lives or fighting about various issues, and sometimes it can be a sad place to be. I know, I just rambled all about it. But. If you don’t know (maybe it didn’t effect you, maybe you’re not on social media) Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp (I don’t use that one, but I’ve heard it was a part of the group) stopped working. For over 12 hours. Here’s my “new” thoughts on when social media shuts down.

Back in the beginning of February, I posted on The Bipolar Writer Blog about my med journey. In that post, I mentioned that I may do a self-care post, and now, for Talkative Tuesday, here it is! Here are a few things that I like to do for myself to help improve my mental health, and a little on why I find them relaxing. Again, the lovely disclosure: I am not a mental health professional, or medical professional. I’m just a girl with a few disorders, and here’s how I help myself.

I’ve finally come up with a nice catchy hashtag for my Thursday posts: #TherapeuticThursdays. Today for therapeutic Thursday, I wanted to write my past self a letter. I want to share all of the things I wish I could tell my past self, things that I think maybe some people today might need to hear. So, here we go.

Recently, thanks to a friend of mine, I have discovered the world of Mental Health Facebook Groups. I hadn’t previously known that these existed- though I am not super adventurous on Facebook either, I guess. But, this lead to my thinking about social media in general and the effects it can have on mental health.

So it’s been a little over a month since my last cringe-fest LiveJournal post! This is the last one that I’d sent myself, meaning this was the last one I felt that had some sort of substance I could comment on. I might quickly scroll through again just to see, but this may or may not be my last LJ post! Another poem, when I was a sophomore I believe. Reading it over, it’s almost like I was trying to write a song. Hmm, maybe I was? I cannot honestly remember. Maybe I’ll start playing with this a bit… Enjoy~

Almost two months ago, I posted a blog on The Bipolar Writer Blog called Relationships & C-PTSD. I’ve talked about C-PTSD before, and what my definition of it is, as well as wondering if I am too guarded. Recently, I was chatting with a friend of mine and told her that I was emotionally ready to BE in a relationship, but not yet ready to START a relationship. Today, I’m going to talk about my thoughts, fears, and hopes about dating and joining the dating realm again.
