Handling Anxiety


Published by Olivia B. Shepherd

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’‹

  1. The idea of this article is good, BUT…this list of her worries that are not true sounds sort of babyish to me–I know, I’m evil for thinking that maybe her story sounds like no big deal compared to other people’s life. What about those of us who DO have serious health issues, loved ones in jail or addicted, actual possiblity of death or people and pets who did die, serious serious money troubles, PTSD…? I agree it’s great to accept that sometimes yeah, we’re making too much of something, and maybe it isn’t as bad as we fear, and it is great to be mindful and to breathe and to eat well and chill out and not make health and life worse, but sometimes things ARE seriously hard and THEN we have anxiety too. I want to know what else can help then, especially if we don’t want to take meds and stuff that doesn’t always help anyhow. Know what I mean? I would LOVE it if i were just sort of making drama about my health, money, partner’s health, whatever, and then a little calm time would should me that everything was really fine.

      1. ahaha! I’ve been having a grumpy/unhappy day today, so sometimes I get a little carried away about it all. Time for me to go sit in bed with the cats and read books and eat chocolate!
