I know I should start off with some intro saying where I’ve been but, the last time I did that, I ended up going MIA for like a month. I know, I need to do better. Just work with me. Lol.

September 15th, 2017: We Really Need To Talk About This.
Please know you are not alone. Many battle mental health issues and even though it may be difficult to talk about, talking makes it easier.
If you need help, please reach out to someone you trust and check out my Resources page.

I extend this to my followers as well. Talking builds a healthy relationship with yourself and those around you. I am not a professional but, if you ever need someone to talk to or just listen, I’m here for you. You can send me an email at email@example.com. Everything will remain private unless I feel you or those around you are in potential danger.
