sometimes it takes 8 months to recover

I was released from the hospital in October of 2014.

It is now early June, and I am just now fully feeling like myself again.

It’s hard to explain, but having a manic episode kind of stripped me bare.

I’ve been poked and prodded and put on medication that slows down the functioning of my brain.

I’ve experienced the shocking loss of my father.

I’ve gotten engaged and am planning a wedding.

I’ve worked with my doctor to get to a dose that doesn’t make me feel like a complete zombie.

I’ve had the constant support of the people that love me, even if they feel like they are way out of their league and, at times, don’t understand me at all.

Shit has been rough, y’all.  But I’m ok.  And it gets better every day.

I feel up for writing again, so that’s a good sign.

I am feeling like I’m back in my own skin.

I can’t wait to continue writing for you guys.


  1. welcome! welcome! every morning and every day say welcome welcome to your own beautiful strong and unique spirit-soul! looooove u! loooove to read you. always your tt.

  2. Love you G! So proud of you. You are such an incredible friend and I am thankful to have you in my life. Mwah!

  3. I came across your blog some months back and quickly devoured everything you’d written. It seems like you are able to put my own thoughts into words and I’m so excited that you’re feeling well enough to write again! It makes me feel slightly less crazy to know I’m not alone and that other young beautiful “successful” women like yourself go through similar struggles, distress, elation, excitement, etc. and take it all in stride. Your openness is inspirational! Thank you for writing 🙂
