Here goes nothing

Well, here we are.

In my reasonless insomnia last night, I decided that 2:30 a.m. was the perfect time to design a website. I’ve been meaning to do so for a long time, and I guess there’s no time like the present. I’m not entirely sure what I want to write about, so this will probably end up as a mess of pop culture discussions, political rants, and a lot of emotions.

The emotions come with the territory of having anxiety and depression. I’ve been on medication for about two years now, and I’m still learning how to deal with everything that the diagnosis entails. There’s such a stigma about mental illness–don’t talk about it, just go on pretending that everything is alright, and you’ll be fine in the end. Right?

Not so much.

I’ve been doing well lately but my brain chemistry always keeps things interesting. It seems to vacillate between being well-adjusted and comfortable, super on-edge, and feeling nothing at all. It depends on the day, really.

As a college student, this can be really inconvenient–school is hard enough without your own body trying to sabotage your progress.

Like I said, though–I’m dealing with it.

Why don’t you join me on this marvelous adventure?
