Bipolar powers, activate! in My Life

I was doing really good with my mental illness. But now I’m sitting here at work, with loads of energy, giggling to myself, and talking my coworkers heads off. Mourning all week, now I’m manic?...

My cousin just died. And I didn’t want to go over my family’s house because I didn’t want to hug anyone. 1. Because I work on a COVID unit, and 2. Because I literally just got my nipples pierced...

I wanna write. in My Life

Seems like every day I write an entry in my head, but I can’t put it to paper. I still owe pictures and an entry from my surgery. I’m still living in the hotel. Been here since April. Will be h...

Epic fail! in My Life

The return didn’t go as planned. Blame it on the surgery and my mind being elsewhere. Anyway, I got my nose pierced today. I’ll try again this week with constant entries.

hello there in My Life

I did have my little minor surgery yesterday, but one thing, one big thing (to me) didn’t go as planned, so I don’t wanna write about it just yet. This should be rectified by the end of the mont...

Things are going great. in My Life

Tomorrow, I will either A) Have surgery, or B) Enjoy my day off, being safe and warm inside It’s up to God and the weather at this point. If I end up staying in, I’ll probably write a huge entr...

Did you ever think that you wouldn’t be able to go into a Waffle House and order a waffle, hash browns with onions and cheese, and coffee? Man. I miss this place. I just replaced my iPad and purc...

I’ve been to 5 protests in the past 5 days. Gassed twice. The scariest part of being black is that I can be killed for no reason, and others would try to justify my murderer’s actions.

I do not enjoy being a girl. When my cycle starts, I get awful pain in my thighs. Along with debilitating cramps. And, if I eat on the first day of my cycle, I will throw up. Usually, my period ...

One year ago, today, I was released from the hospital. I’ve been out for longer than ever since I’ve been having mental health issues. Today has been a doozy. Yesterday, I called in to work bec...

Today, I saw my counselor and my psychiatrist. I complained about an embarrassing problem I’ve had for all of my life. I can’t concentrate. I go to use my phone’s calculator, but end up opening...

Being broke sucks. in My Life

I’m not o-fucking-kay. in My Life

I know I don’t write much, but that’s mostly because I don’t have a computer. Typing on the phone is irritating. Excuse the typos. Monday, I found out my camera was ‘gotten rid of’. My DSLR, len...

Our roommate just fucked up our apartment.

New diagnosis. in My Life

Turns out, I’m probably not bipolar. I probably have borderline personality disorder. Which, I feel, is worse. More stigmatized. No medicine helps, just intense therapy. A lot of people don’t su...

Yesterday, I told my dad to die slow and go to hell. And I meant every word of it. I even texted him ‘I hate you, never speak to me again, and I mean it’. And, I do mean it.
