Lapland The Trip of a Lifetime

We are home from my big birthday holiday! I'm still overwhelmed and amazed by the experience. We went on a sleigh ride with reindeer, and husky pulled sledding, we visited an Ice Village and searched for the Northern Lights. I've had the most amazing time, it's something that I will never forget. I am totally... Continue Reading →

Dying. Needlessly…

A man I used to know is seriously ill and in pain, all because of alcohol and drugs. He is Dying, and it's such a heart breaking situation.

Make up and holiday

Well, it's been a fairly positive two weeks since I started my new meds. Some mornings I wake up in a bit of a rage, but mostly I am feeling really good. I have started to experiment a bit with make up this past week, something that I am not very comfortable or confident about,... Continue Reading →

Confidence

I feel like a different person this week. I am confident, and feel good about myself. I'm making an effort to put some makeup on and actually do my hair, and it makes such a big difference. What a total turn around from a couple of weeks ago... I've been on the Quetiapine for almost... Continue Reading →
