Grief: an Update/Ball in a Box Analogy

Grief: an Update/Ball in a Box Analogy

Hello everyone, and welcome to Therapeutic Thursday! I know I’ve shared my story of grief a few different times and in different ways between my blog and The Bipolar Writer Blog, but today I wanted to give an update on grief, how I’ve been dealing with and managing my grief, as well as talk about the Twitter sensation “the ball in the box.”

The Office: Everything Wrong with Jim Halpert (a rant)

The Office: Everything Wrong with Jim Halpert (a rant)

Hello and happy Talkative Tuesday on my blog! I’ve done this once before with Rory fromĀ Gilmore Girls, discussing one of my usual binge-worthy shows and a character that I find some pretty big flaws in. The Office is probably my number one, go-to, binge-watch-worthy, what to put on when nothing is on type of show. I enjoy it as white noise as well as being able to pick up at any episode and know exactly what is going on. And yet… the beloved Jim Halpert, I have a few issues with.

Anxiety: Side Effects (Pros & Cons)

Anxiety: Side Effects (Pros & Cons)

Happy Talkative Tuesday! In my recent post about the 12 Habits Anxiety Gave Me, it got me thinking quite a bit about the various “side effects” (as I like to call them) of anxiety. I know there is a large stigma attached to anxiety, as well as the rest of the mental health world, but I feel as though there are multiple pros and cons to having an anxiety disorder. Allow me explain.

I Live to be Invisible

I Live to be Invisible

Happy Therapeutic Thursday, my blogisphere friends! A few weeks (maybe months) back, I spent some time with a life-long friend of mine. I mean we met when we were just under 5, I believe, and she’s been a part of my life ever since. I wish I could remember what led us to this, but she basically came to the understanding that while most do their best to stand out and be seen, I take the exact opposite approach. I live to be invisible.

Gilmore Girls: Everything Wrong with Rory (a rant)

Gilmore Girls: Everything Wrong with Rory (a rant)

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.

When Social Media Shuts Down… (a rant)

When Social Media Shuts Down… (a rant)

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.

How I Self-Care

How I Self-Care

Back in the beginning of February, I posted onĀ 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.
