Another ultra-relevant/unfortunately relatable song from Paramore, folks. All the news seems to do for me is cause my anxiety to skyrocket and, on worse days, send me spiraling. I keep telling myself that I can handle it, when the reality is it just makes things WORSE. And I’m not actually taking anything in except sheer… Continue reading The News
Category: Worry Worry
Whaaaaat? This isn’t based on my own personal experiences with reading. I haven’t the SLIGHTEST idea what you’re talking about. Side note: I’ve been trying to draw more of my other characters recently, just for some variety.
Overwhelmed by Content
There’s just so much…stuff out there. Stuff to read. Stuff to watch. Stuff to play. Stuff to listen to. Stuff stuff stuff. But it feels like there isn’t enough time to consume it all. Or at least in a way where you actually enjoy it. And of course, new content is continually coming out. So… Continue reading Overwhelmed by Content
My Brain Hates Me
C’mon, brain. We’re supposed to be on the same side. The side of making sure that I remain functioning and not sinking into a pit of anxious despair. So let’s NOT look things up that will trigger me and instead do something else. Please.

It’s been a week. A long, frustrating, draining, emotions-running-around-in-circles, week. A week where you could stand on a cliffside and scream into the void whilst confusing some mermaids.

Really trying to adopt this motto into my own life. I mean, there isn’t more that we can do except live one day at a time, right? Doesn’t do any good trying to live too far in the future. This is admittedly easier said than done, especially for someone like me, whose anxiety just LOVES… Continue reading A Chat: Answers

It was a series of firsts for me, though. First time having to put on a hospital gown. First time getting… Continue reading Surgery After Care
Saturday. I was at work, doing what I needed to do, collecting books to be placed on hold, trying not to think about anything super hard. I’m just about done when I hear this noise. No idea where it came from, almost sounded like some kid that was either really upset or super excited (hard… Continue reading Breathe Easy
Last week. My god. Last week was one of the longest, most excruciating weeks I have had the displeasure of experiencing period. Like, all of the anxiety I’ve had during 2020 was jammed into the span of a week and heightened to levels that I haven’t felt in years. All due to a very particular… Continue reading Last Week
Mistakes Were Made
Yep. Fell down a rabbit hole of election news for a good solid hour a few days ago. Managed to get my heart rate/anxiety up. On the plus side, this is the first time I’ve done that in ages. And I don’t plan on doing it again soon. Because I’m not actually learning anything or… Continue reading Mistakes Were Made
