Therapy Day Yesterday๐Ÿ˜Œ

So I forgot to mention I saw my therapist yesterday. As always I was feeling pretty good after I left her. She knows just how to continue encouraging me when I’m just on the tip of self-doubt. I explained to her, how good I was feeling. On a scale from 1-5, I explain to her that my anxiety was at 2 and depression 1. I can’t help but feel like I lied just a little. I’m feeling really anxious about my son being in prison, some days are better than others. It’s the days like a lonely Sunday that I miss him more, or when I have something stupid to tell him. I just need to see him, be able to look into his eyes, to see from my own mom perspective if he’s really good. I know he’s just keeping me out of the loop sometimes to keep me sane. His bday is tomorrow and I’ve been having these labor pains in my back. Ladies; am I the only one who goes through this??๐ŸคจWierd yes I know!! I know my therapist could see right through me but she did her best to steer the conversation to positive talks. Oh well, I thank her for helping me alone and putting me on the right path to healing. 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.
