The Princess & The Pea-- A Tale of Anxiety

I will always have a low buzzing of anxiety running through my blood. This I know for sure. I will always be working twice as hard as those who don't have mental illness just so I can appear normal.

Adult Friendships: Why So Difficult?

Let's talk about friendships: ADULT friendships. 

As a child, I used to pray for friends. I didn't have them, and I always wanted them. Then, in 7th grade, like magic--my prayers seemed answered. I suddenly had three best friends--a girl gang. Then, as quickly as it began, it ended in 10th grade after they spread rumors about me, and ostracized me from sitting with them in the school cafeteria. This experience solidified that I can only depend on my family--my parents and my older brother.
