Breaking things down on a mixed emotion day…

Today has been pretty mixed. I felt like crap first thing this morning, but picked up again after talking to M2. We had a good chat, though she did recommend that I reach out to Dr. M.

Content Warning: Suicide… World Suicide Prevention Day

Photo by Pixabay on Pexels.com Today marks three years that I've been writing this blog. In some ways it feels like yesterday the first day I hit 'Publish' and in other ways it feels like forever.
