The Morning Struggle!!

Good morning, well I’m up and about, but Lord it’s such a struggle. I don’t know if it’s the gloomy weather outside or what. I dread getting out the bed, and yes I know it’s the depression, but I would love to jump out of bed like a 3-year-old. Instead my chronic pain makes it so difficult. I mean my body is aching more and more. I don’t think the meds are working as much as they have a couple of weeks ago. I go see the nurse on Friday, so hopefully we can try something else. I have a full work schedule the rest of this week, and I really need my body to be in shape. It makes me a little sad, because I don’t want to quit working all together. It’ s just so painful to move around, feels like a big big elephant is sitting on me. Other than that, I’m feeling pretty good mentally this morning. Haven’t had any crying spells today, or at least not yet! Lol! Well I’m about to get this day started, wishing you all the best day!! 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. Iโ€™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, ๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ ๐Ÿ’‹
