Wednesday Morning!

Manage to get up this morning, doctor up my meds so it makes a bit drowsy when I’m up. So I will thank God for allowing me to see another, but I feel so guilty for getting up and not going to work. I promise I’m looking but just still confused on where God is leading me to, is it to work in the daycare center, keep my business running or something totally different but what? Just so confused and mad at myself because I’m older and finding myself should have been many years ago. I’ve found it difficult to talk about this illness with anybody, because word’s don’t seem to do justice.  Again if you don’t see it then it must not exist and that’s the stigma that comes along with being depressed. Oh well I manage to get out bed and fixed breakfast for me and the hubby, little steps are always good. I just feel so bad when he comes home, because I don’t live up to my wifely duties. Now he doesn’t complain , I just feel some type of guilt! I try to do things around the house so he can see I’m trying, but all I want to do is fall back into bed and pull the covers on my head. Oh well I’m going to find something to get in, maybe I’ll do some crafting or finally get this book typed up. Stay Tuned……

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others. I'm passionate and dedicated to bringing awareness about mental health, especially in the African American community. I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. I’m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future. Look forward to having you read my blog, 𝓞𝓵𝓲𝓿𝓲𝓪 𝓑. 𝓢𝓱𝓮𝓹𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓭 💋
