Find a Partner  - 
 
I'd love to find a fellow mental health blogger to partner up with! If that's not possible, I would also love to work with someone interested in health, well-being, or lifestyle blogging.
I have compiled a list of 9 of the best mental health apps (in my humble opinion). I have personally used all of these apps, and while none of them have cured my bipolar (yet), they have significantly helped with some of the symptoms, improved my wellness, and allowed me track my progress.

Goodbye, The Awkward Indie Girl!
A lot has happened in the last month. My blog and I have gotten a lot of attention, and I have had some amazing opportunities to serve as an advocate for the mental health community - expect a blog post about this soon! I think I have finally reached the po...

Drugged
I have been off Lexapro for a week now. It's my first time with 0mg since my first hospitalization in 2012. Late last year, I started taking Latuda, which is for bipolar depression. It seemed like a good time to try weaning myself off of the Lexapro. I take...

The "B" Word
At Towson University, I have seen several posters advocating for "Spread the Word to End the Word." There is an entire website campaign dedicated to purging the word "retarded" from casual use. At first I was skeptical. Does one word really matter? The more...

Fighting the Inertia of Depression
This past weekend, I had a minor depressed episode. I spent most of my two days off in bed. I'd eventually stumble out to get some food or go to the bathroom, but I spent too much time between my sheets. My energy was low. I had a hard time accomplishing an...

Hello! I have been blogging for almost four years, but I just purchased the eKit. I am in love! I started as a fashion blogger, and it took about a year for me to find my passion as a mental health/lifestyle blogger.

Same here Jenna, I started as "fashion" but now I'm a life coach for bloggers!  I've been blogging for a few years myself, but hopefully I can still learn something new from the kit! :)

Sometimes I Am Disabled
Most people who know me know that I am bipolar. When it comes up in conversation, I don't mind sharing. I'm happy to answer questions, and I am always willing to be an advocate. Not much of my private life is actually private. On my blog I admit to having b...

High School
I did NOT take this photo. This is from Rock n Roll Revival last year, but it captures the spirit of the show better than any other image I could create myself. I don't know who to give credit to, since I found it on multiple people's Facebook pages. If it'...

Losing My Religion: Why I Am No Longer a Mormon
This is the story of how I lost my faith. It's not a beautiful story, nor will it be a popular one. I have struggled with writing it down for over a year. There are so many people I don't want to disappoint, so many people who touched my life, so many peopl...

I am a steadfast supporter of escapism - particularly when said escapism is in the form of books. I believe there are very few situations that are so dire that a book cannot provide a convenient escape route. When fighting depression, books can allow you to...

Mental health blogger
Introduction
I am an English student at Towson University, a #StigmaFighter, and someone who deals with mental health issues on a daily basis. I am currently a mental health blogger, but it is my goal to someday move on to writing books so that I can more effectively share my story and the stories of others. 

So what's my story? I grew up all over Europe, and I moved to the USA right before I turned 16. I had a rough time in high school, and I was eventually diagnosed with bipolar I rapid-cycling, obsessive compulsive disorder, and psychosis NOS. Those diagnoses don't define me, however, and I'm doing whatever I can to achieve my dreams.

Come along for the ride!
