Let’s Talk About Accessible Parking

The other day I went to the mall with a few pals, and one of my least favourite things happened. I was having a particularly bad pain day, so we decided to park in one of the accessible spots to cut down on walking. Before I even got out of the car, though, there was […] Read more…

#BellLetsTalk: Dig a Little Deeper

Today is #BellLetsTalk day. I know you all know that, but what most of you don’t know is that today, I’ve been struggling a lot with whether or not to make a post about my own experience with mental illness. Even as I write this, I find myself questioning whether or not I should, which […] Read more…

Music as Healing

I’ve loved music for as long as I can remember. I know that’s cliché, and almost everybody says it, but I really, truly mean it.

At times I go into detail about my symptoms of anxiety, panic, and depression, which could be triggering for some (again, maybe?). While I love and appreciate all of y’all […] Read more…

Note to Self: On Fear

For the record, since I’ve posted two more ~serious~ posts lately, this one is more of a ‘note to self’ kind of thing, and it’s going to be short and sweet. I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and I am anxious about literally everything, almost all the time. Even the tiniest things can send me into a […] Read more…

Dirty Words: Why ‘Disabled’ Isn’t One

DISCLAIMER: Identifying language is a personal choice. This is mine, but I’m not anyone’s ~token disabled person~ so make sure you check in with other folks to see what language and labels they prefer 🙂 Now, let’s get real. Every time I hear the, “but people with disabilities are people first!!! Focus on the person, not the *whispers* […] Read more…
