My Anxiety Story

I’ve been wanting to write a post like this for a while because I feel like there are so many stereotypes around Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Here in the quiet of my apartment at 8:30 am on a Saturday for some reason just feels right. So here we go…. Fall semester senior year at TCU….

Decided to share a few of my favorite things recently 🙂 Truly Madly Deeply Caroline Stripe Sweater from Urban Outfitters– I just got this sweater with some Christmas money and I’ve been in love with it since the moment I tried it on in the store. I like big chunky sweaters that are super soft….

10 Things most people don’t know about me

Beer > Wine (ANY DAY): What can I say? I grew up with a family that prefers beer as their beverage of choice. Plus, being raised Catholic, I got my first sip of wine when I was 8 years old….and I’m sorry that stuff is bitter. And before you even say anything, YES I’ve had…

I gave up my true love in the midst of my eating disorder….

Three times I’ve been to Sota now. Am I in love? Absolutely 🙂 I was actually able to get a morning flight this time so my friend and I had time to do some stuff during the day my first day there! After she picked me up from the airport we headed to a spot…

5 Years Free

October 6, 2018 7:12 a.m. As I eat my breakfast on the morning of my second NEDA Walk, I’m looking at the sunrise out my window (3rd floor apartment perks) and I can’t help but try to remember what I was doing this morning 5 years ago… October 2013, I was a freshman at TCU….

5 Life Updates

It’s been a hot minute since I updated y’all on what’s going on with me….so here we go! Starting to back squat– I avoided back squat for so long because of the scoliosis I have in my lower back. I had an unfortunate encounter when I was first diagnosed with a doctor who basically told…

Whoops…overate

I went to dinner recently at one of my favorite sushi places in Fort Worth. Between myself and my dinner date, we scarfed down 6 sushi rolls and a giant piece of peanut butter chocolate pie. The next morning I woke up with the familiar symptoms. Bloating, fullness, burping, clothes a little tight. Yeah….I definitely…
