My name is Jessica, I’m 22 and I’m kind of a walking disaster. I am slightly addicted to coffee, I have a cat named Benjen, and I’m cripplingly impulsive. I recently quit my job and enrolled in university (hello, impulsiveness) and I hope to be a sex therapist when I “grow up”. But that’s enough fun facts for now.
So, why did I want to start a blog?
I have struggled with anxiety and depression for as long as I can remember. It’s not the best, in fact it’s kind of shitty. But like everything in life, it’s just something you need to find the good in. For me, the “good” is helping at least one person.
I’ve always wanted to reach people. To make them feel like they aren’t alone. I’ve tried YouTube, where I shared my struggles, my accomplishments, my good days and bad. But as exciting as having a YouTube channel is, some days I just couldn’t roll out of bed and put on my face to sit in front of a camera. It is the sad truth of mental illness.
I have bad days, and I have great days.
I am anxious, but I am optimistic.
If you are interested in what I have to say, for any reason whatsoever, feel free to join me along this journey of self-exploration-whatever this is.
