*LONG POST ALERT*
I try to be as open as I possibly can when it comes to my mental health and today is not an exception. If you’ve followed me for a while then you know that I struggle with Depression, Anxiety and (recently diagnosed) Bipolar Disorder. This is what I like to call the “Triple Threat” of the mental health world. All of these together create for one heck of a day-to-day life. Today started off fine, but at the flip of a switch my mood changed. Nothing really substantial happened to make me do a full 180° but it happened nonetheless. Crying, self-hatred and overthinking took over and I felt helpless... these days don’t occur as frequently as they used to (thank God), but when they do they take a toll. On a positive, I have an amazing family that loves and supports me, brings me froyo when I have days like this and watches movies like Guardians of the Galaxy with me. I may not always have my head on properly, but I’m thankful for those who help me see straight again.
You could probably need some fresh air and a natural summer feeling dress @brokersandbags looks stunning in the photo.

I got to spend the (last) whole day of kindergarten with my Hartley-boy yesterday on their field trip. I love our big, snuggly bear-cub. He proudly holds my hand, sits on my lap, and gives me giant hugs (and kisses) every time I’m at a school event. I may be wrong, but I think he’ll hold on to that longer than Merit did, and I’m soaking it up as long as I can. Kindergarten is over for this dude, but we’ll still be in the kindergarten world with Ro girl next year! PS- Bless you, kindergarten teachers. While I LOVED spending the day with the cutest little students (kindergartners really are so cute, aren’t they?!)- I don’t know how you never misplace a child OR how you keep you chill of the time with all of the chaos and over-stimulation going ok around you. You guys are amazing!
I feel and look like today so here’s a selfie from the other day when I didn’t. ♀️
