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.

  1. I think that ideally, yes, being present during sexual activities and life would happen all the time and be great. To me, it used to be the only way to do it, to be with someone you really wanted to be with, who wanted to be with you, and to not be high and to really both appreciate and all. However, with illness and ptsd and other factors, sometimes it can be hard enough for me to be present when eating breakfast! I try, and yet I can see that trauma and even just getting older and worn out takes a serious toll on being able to stay present, at least for me.

      1. I think humans have this pattern be present, then space out to give yourself a break, then do it again, and I find that sometimes it’s easier and sometimes forget it–it’s not happening! Things like even reading a book and watching tv or movies are ways of giving yourself a break. I figure we all do the best we can, and I love to watch the birds and squirrels out in the backyard or play with my cats–they are pretty easy to be present with, so I practice with them!
