Words from Bon Iver, Regina Spektor, Brene' Brown, Rumi, Frank Sinatra

It's been a while and it's been a rough week. On Monday one of my medications was raised and it made me extremely anxious and compulsive. I contacted my psychiatrist and have stopped taking it. I already feel more like myself and it has only been a day.

Yesterday I added words to some of my photographs. I ordered them from Snapfish as 11x17 poster prints. Right now they are offering 50% off site wide (with code: albacore13), so I got a great deal! These were fun to make and I'm looking forward to hanging them around the house.

This week I have:

Taken down Halloween decorations & redecorated some areas in the living room (still working on it)

Been to the salon to have my hair cut and dyed (great date with my momma in-law!)

Made flags on candy pop sticks with pretty paper and put one thing I am thankful for on each flag (can't wait to show you!)

Planned to cook and bake but didn't do any of it.

Watched Julie and Julia, and a few episodes of Call the Midwife.

Bought some marigolds.


I'm so glad it's the weekend. I just want to have a calm day and some fun with Ronald. I really need it after this week! Looking forward to some good things happening.

  1. I have to say that I felt a lot better once I got off my medication entirely. It was really important to me to learn non-medical ways to deal with my many issues. Good luck to you, lady! <3

    1. Thanks Caitlin! That is so great that you feel better off meds. I wish I could do that, but my depression is so intense that even lowering one medication almost puts me in the hospital.

      I am so happy with my psychiatrist as he believes in using the least amount of medication possible, and every time we raise something, we try to decrease something else. I am also in intensive therapy at least twice a week and sometimes more.

      So many psychiatrists just throw meds at mental illness and it isn't as simple as that, to say the least.

      So glad you are following my blog! You are adorable and awesome!
