Today I stepped on the scale for the first time in 2 months. I was expecting the high 170's, which is a little more than what I weighed those 2 months ago. But nothing prepared me for the number that actually popped up on that scale. 190. ... Read more

It has been only a month since I have written, and yet so much has happened. I will try to break it down as slowly as possible. I can barely keep up myself! The beginning of May I decided to take what is called a "Maymester" of school as CS... Read more

Monday, April 11, 2016 6 comments
I have waited my entire life to hear his voice, to see his face, and to feel his hug. I have often wondered whether or not he ever thought about what I have been doing with my life. I grew up thinking he may never know how successful I have beco... Read more

What would you want your family's last memory to be of you?
Monday, November 23, 2015 6 comments
It was a difficult few days last week, and I apologize to all my friends that I never got back with. Even with God's help, I still had to push through. Perhaps that was His way of challenging me so He can teach me that I have the power to get th... Read more

Thursday, November 12, 2015 4 comments
I prayed again this morning. I asked God to send me another sign, because if he had sent any at all, they weren't big enough for me to see. I wasn't scolding, I was pleading. I explained to him that my depression was getting worse, and that I ne... Read more

The other day I started reading a book about someone who dealt with depression and addiction. In fact, you may know the person very well since he is the former guitarist from Korn: Brian Welch. A friend told me I should read his autobiogra... Read more

Friday, October 23, 2015 4 comments
Many times beauty isn't seen when we glance in the mirror. We see flaws; nothing but an endless number of flaws. So next time you're feeling beautiful, don't hide it. Embrace it! Take a picture. Because sometimes we need help remembering how bea... Read more

I decided that for once I'd talk about something other than my fight with depression. Keep in mind that it consumes me in so many different ways, so the word may come up here and there. Don't be alarmed; it won't be the entirety of this blog. So... Read more

I knew I was getting depressed again when I "earned" two consecutive zero's in two of my classes. School has always been my thing, so I knew right then that my depression was coming back. The fact that I didn't care about the grades told me that... Read more
