BLACK MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS

Throughout this entire week, I’ve been saying “my nerves are bed” which for me means, I’m anxious. I’ve been unable to sit still. I’ve felt very uneasy. I’ve felt like screaming. I haven’t been able to pin point exactly where all of this anxiety is stemming from. I think it’s just… everything. Everything that I’mContinue reading “BLACK MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS”

What are you willing to do?

I really wish I could sit here and say that I enjoy going to the gym…. but I don’t lol.

I want to challenge my readers to think about what coping skills you use, and better yet are they healthy or unhealthy? It’s no surprise that theContinue reading “How Do You Cope?”
