Abuse: Ray & Janay Rice and my story #whyileft

I sat down to write a post about acupuncture, which is one of my favorite topics to talk about. Instead, I found myself pouring out a little part of my heart and soul that I’ve tried to keep hidden for over 10 years. A piece of my past that is dirty and embarrassing. A part of my past that I am ashamed of. Some people say they have no regrets and those people have either lived a painfully boring life or are completely full of shit. I’ve done LOTS of stuff I regret which is probably why I’ll never have a midlife crisis....more

Anxiety Chronicles

Anxiety is a soul sucking whore of a beast.I don’t know why I have anxiety. I honestly don’t remember not having anxiety.
