  • In A Fog This Morning

    I can’t seem to get my brain to function right this morning. I feel like I am trapped inside a thick fog and can’t navigate my way around.

  • Feeling The Rush…

    Yesterday was an excellent day for me. I was and still am in a very good mood. Yet, part of me is worried that this feeling is going to crash at any minute and my depression will return.
