Why being on meds is OK

I read this article on Glamour today and found myself unable to move along without commenting on it. Women Are Ditching Their Antidepressants at Higher Rates Than Men—The Reasons Are Complicated This article is disturbing to me on multiple levels.

An Ode to Anxiety

Anxiety is an atrocious beast. There’s the old phrase that having anxiety causes more of it. Yep. It certainly does. I got lost at a city festival last weekend. I was trying to get back to a group of friends while visiting another group. I was in a city I’m pretty familiar with. On a […]
