Getting In & Going Forth

How getting into college taught me some valuable lessons about encouragement, dreams, choices, and God’s plan for my life. And getting detentions for swearing in the girls’ bathroom.

When I Almost Wasn’t

About two times I should have ended, how I survived, and now living to tell the tale.

The Monster: Part Two

After writing my previous blog, The Monster, I felt a very heavy conviction that I needed to take more proactive steps toward healing the residual effects of my addiction and the events that led up to it.
So I am.

The Monster

Bipolar, Addiction, and “Every Man’s Battle” – one girl’s struggle with monsters under her bed… because girls have X-rated feelings too.

Crash

How a bus crash in Mexico caused the worst emotional crash ever… and ultimately saved my life.

All of Me

How my medical identification tried to sabotage my love life

It Makes Me Brave

How hospitalization, the most humiliating experience of my life, transformed into the most life-changing experience… and makes me brave.

…So I Take Them

Balancing bipolar, medication, and my self respect.
Also, lithium ion and lithium carbonate are two very different things.
