Good morning bloggers, I’m back after some much needed rest! Had a little mental breakdown, but I’m up a ready to go again!!! This past week has been really rough and I officially realized that I need some major help!!! So on Monday I will be assigned a therapist and a nurse, they have also set me up for some group therapy!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am about seeking help!!! Nope I don’t feel ashame or sad, this was the best decision I have made in a while!! After this last “moment” I saw some really ignorant people who came out of the woodwork. People still believing that if I stop drinking so much, my depression will somehow go away. Or, if I stop thinking negatively it will all go away, people people it doesn’t work like that!!??? Seriously no one has a clue about what it’s like to be in this situation, this state of mind, this constant state of despair!! If you don’t know what to say…then don’t say shit, your not helping me with your stupidity!!! Well enough of that…I missed you all and wanted to thank you for the kind encouraging words!!! Like I said before you can’t keep a Diva down!!!! Chat soon….

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 💋 View more posts
