Apologies for my lack of post last week, and also for my delay in the one before that. It’s been a busy couple of weeks and a lot has happened. I’m attempting to get my shit back together though - although, I think I’ve done pretty well considering I’ve stayed consistent with two posts a… Continue reading Mental Health Update: I’ve Started CBT Again
In an attempt to combat my recently diagnosed depression (I’ll get to that in another post), I’ve started running again.

I was feeling good. Then, things took a bit of a turn. I originally planned for this… Continue reading I’m Struggling
