Today I Made Myself Proud!

Well I did it, I got out of my dark tunnel and stepped out on faith. I was a bit nervous because this was a long time coming, but I did it. I set my mind up to do it and I did. This may seem a little silly to others, but not to me. I was in a dark tunnel for so long, I didn’t know what day looked like. My house was dark, my life was dark, and my mind was too. Now, I can see some progress in myself . Therapy and my medicines have been a big help, I’m able to focus ย without worrying about the ‘what if’s’. Today I made myself proud, I’m just as happy as can be. Its been a long time coming, with my continued therapy and coping classes, I should be a new me soon. I’m in no rush, just want to enjoy what it feels like for once to be in the life of the living again…..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’‹
