I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Depression is a Cotton Stuffed Head

Depression makes my head feel like it's filled with clouds or stuffed with cotton.

I have so many things I want to say and do, but I just cannot convince myself to start them and whenever I do manage to start something, it just takes so much longer than normal. I am dedicated to talking about my depression openly and honestly-though not too honestly, for I am not quite ready to divulge all that I feel-so that people will know that those who suffer with depression or any other kind of mental illness cannot simply pull themselves up by their bootstraps! They are not lazy or simply complaining either. I am not giving up hope and I hope that the few people that follow this blog will patiently wait for the meatier articles that I will someday have the strength and motivation to write again.
