#ThursdayThoughts / why we need to break the stigma around antidepressants

I was mildly nervous to admit to people that I had started taking an antidepressant. I realize I have formed an image of being as consciously organic as possible/reasonable, preaching the benefits of meditation, journaling, and CBD as natural anxiety relievers. I wanted to prove to others but mostly myself that I could handle this on my own, through sheer willpower and determination. I will just meditate the anxiety attacks away. It’s fine, it’s fine, it’s fine.

My Medication Journey / Week 1-2

Hello readers. If this is your first time on my blog, welcome. I’m a wellness and lifestyle writer who aspires to lead as organic a life as possible. I’ve also got horrible anxiety and depression and have recently started taking medication for it for the first time ever. I’m aware this is quite the oxymoron, but I’ve always been super honest and vulnerable in my posts and that won’t stop now. Antidepressants are super common but rarely talked about, which is partly why I’ve always been scared of them, so I’m going to detail my journey with them with extreme transparency in hopes of breaking down that stigma. I can be a wellness advocate and still take medication. So, if you’ve ever been curious or are considering medication for yourself, keep on reading!

Plan With Me – September: Astrology Forecast, Tarotscope, and Goals & Intentions

August was not the gentle month I was hoping for. I struggled with a lot of anxiety for the majority of the month, something I haven’t had to deal with so consistently in so long, and then my dog passed away. August really decided to test me, huh! Reflecting on it now, I can see that during these hardships I leaned on my family and friends for support. I was very open and vulnerable with my anxiety and started a support group chat with others that confided in me their similar struggles. It was terrifying to be so vulnerable but I found a supportive community of people because of it. When Jake passed away, I immediately sheltered myself in my family’s love and we got each other through the first few days without him. This month just proved to me how crucial family and friends are during times of need.

My Feel Good Diary

Happy Sunday, loves! A few weeks ago my family and I participated in the CHOC Walk and, as it always does, it reminded me of what’s important in life: family. I’ve shared with you all my struggles with anxiety and all of it got me thinking “what makes me feel good?”. I do a lot throughout my day to be my best self, and a lot of these things I don’t even really think about. I thought, what better way to highlight these daily rituals than to give Refinery29’s Feel Good Diaries a shot of my own? I’m obsessed with their Money Diaries (maybe I’ll do my own here one day…) but also love to read their Feel Good Diaries to see how other women manage their wellness routines. The point is to track a week’s worth of meals, supplements, subscriptions, anything that you would consider part of your wellness routine. Read on for mine!
