Gaga: Five Foot Two

I have never been one for fads, always flocking to the reliable, steady, and classic with friends, fashion, and fandoms. I have seen my idols through breakups, breakdowns, and breakthroughs and all of these have only made those in the public eye more raw, more relatable, and more real. "[...] Five Foot Two" shows Gaga... Continue Reading →

Aftermath: Chester Bennington Suicide

Disclosure: Sensitive content about suicide, read at your own discretion. I may not have anything smart to say about suicide, as awful a thing as it can be, the tributes coming in too late, as if only if that outpour of support and love was there before, maybe, just maybe, something would have gone different. I...

The Aftermath: Manchester

"Police say 22 people have died, with 59 injured, in a suicide attack at Manchester Arena [at an Ariana Grande Concert]." Grande was not one of the women I was considering writing about for my WEW feature, but I will be following what she does closely in the aftermath, and hopefully reporting back. As I...

The God Delusion

So I disclosed in one of my recent posts that for an extended period of time I thought I was the resurrection of Jesus Christ. I titled today's post 'The God Delusion', but this belief is actually medically categorized as a 'grandiose delusion' and there are some things about this phenomenon that I want to...

Why Love Is Maybe Not For Me

I've been in reciprocated love once before. Twice more after in one-sided delusions that were a manifestation of my states of mania and psychosis. During these two altered states I did crazy things to 'prepare' for when my ideal relationship would begin; I went on diets and got an expensive gym membership with a 3x/week... Continue Reading →

The half-hour feature follows Jeff, Lauren, and Lloyd in their journey of recovery and maintaining a healthy life despite the diagnosis of... Continue Reading →

Anxiety

It's no secret that I struggle with my mental wellness, and anxiety is a big part of that. One of the symptoms of my mental illness is when I see everything as a symbol or a sign. Numbers and colours have great significance, car brands represent people, and there was even a time when I... Continue Reading →

A Sonnet

I wrote this poem in the throws of my last depression, and see in it bits of hope. I don't really know what it means but it was the first writing I had done in 5 or so years. I don't remember what I was thinking when I wrote it. It doesn't have a name:... Continue Reading →

A Thought on Mourning Pt. Deuce

So some of you may have noticed I was visibly absent from the #BellLetsTalk discussion. There is a simple explanation to this: I was helping a friend in need and away from any and all social media for a few days. But I don't think the discussion should start and end on this one day...
