When it comes to therapy, there are hundreds of different modalities and philosophies on treatment, and this last two weeks my therapist and I have tried a new one.

Can Someone Turn This Off?

Lately when I tell people about my feelings or anxiety, their response is always….Have you tried yoga?  No…no I haven’t tried the most popular exercise craze that is supposed to center you.  It never crossed my mind.

Sleep Deprived Should be a Mood

**Just a warning, this is really rambly and not very fluid.  Sorry all, but you’ll hear why.** Last night, I couldn’t sleep.  I was up tossing and turning until at least 2 a.m. Naturally, I fell asleep JUST a few hours before my alarm was set to go off.  I find when I don’t get…… Continue reading Sleep Deprived Should be a Mood

It’s been two weeks since I was last able to update.  I came down with a pretty intense head cold the week before last and felt continuously exhausted.  After I would finish working, it was as if my brain was just too tired to write.  Does that make sense?
