Anxiety, Mental Health

Mental Health & Mental Breakdowns

This is going to be a different kind of post. I’m going to tackle the topic of mental health. More specifically, my mental health. I’ve made no secret, on here and on social media, that I suffer with anxiety, in particular social anxiety disorder and OCD. I’ve had anxiety for my entire life. The last twenty-four hours have been, for lack of a better term, hell. I’ve almost had a complete breakdown. I’m going to talk about what happened (as much as I can), what  ...

I love reading these types of posts about other bloggers – it helps to make you become more than just a person behind a screen.

July TBR

  Can you believe we’re in July already? It’s hard to wrap my head around the fact that we’re in the second half of 2018 now. It’s quite scary how fast this year has gone. Even though I’ve had a really productive six months, I still feel as though I have so much left to do this year and wondering if I can really fit it in to the next six months. This includes all the books I want to read. I’m so impatient that I want to have read them all already.  ...

About Me, Book Tag

My Reading Habits

I’ve decided to branch out a little bit and do something different to a book review so that you can get to know me – and my reading habits – a bit better. While this is a tag, I haven’t actually been tagged by a blogger – I saw this on Goodreads and decided to do it because it looked like fun and is something a little bit different. Who says you can’t do it if you haven’t been tagged? Not me! If you want to do it, you do it. I plan on doing a few  ...
