It’s been awhile, ladies & gentleman, but I am now ready to start posting in this blog again.

It’s been awhile, ladies & gentleman, but I am now ready to start posting in this blog again.

A journey of rediscovery & growth

It’s been forever since I’ve posted anything in this blog & I thought it would be time to address why.

To put it quite simply I’ve been overcoming major depression for the past 2 years. I didn’t find it necessarily appropriate to vent on this blog, as it has always been a more happy/inspirational outlet for me.

As a result of that, I created a second blog:

It’s been extremely therapeutic for me to express my feelings and meet others who I can relate to.

I’ve always felt a melancholy within me, but it finally got to the point where I absolutely couldn’t find any sense of meaning in my life. I had gotten to my lowest of lows, it was time to seek help once & for all.

Essentially, mental illness (Bipolar Disorder) runs in my family

When I first went to see a psychiatrist, I was diagnosed with Major Depression. I was prescribed an Antidepressant called Wellbutrin - it made me feel absolutely horrible and erratic. After a couple more visits & me having to fill out ‘Mood Charts’ so my Doctor could see how my moods were, he finally diagnosed me with Bipolar II. I was taken off the Antidepressant and prescribed Lithium - a Mood Stabilizer. I also take Xanax as needed for anxiety.

I can honestly say since I’ve been on medication I’ve been granted parts of my life back that I forgot existed. I once was blind, but now I see. 

It’s been a complete journey of rediscovering myself & growing as a person - one heck of a trip, but worth every moment. 

I’m not gone from Tumblr nor do I ever plan on leaving this blog. I just feel that now is the time for me to come back & get involved on here. I needed a break to sort myself out first.

I’d also like to make it known that I’m here for any of you, as support, so do not  hesitate to contact me if you need someone to talk to.

"We’re never as alone as we think we are."

Peace & love to you all,

- A

The journey between what you once were and who you are now becoming is where the dance of life really takes place.
