Let's begin this journey together
Triggers for me are everywhere. It’s hard to get away from. I sit at work and hear people talking about what’s happening in the news. I scroll through social media and see people talking about sexual assault and get sucked into their comments and become upset. Then I come home and hear my family talk about it. It’s so difficult to cope with.
Be Proud. Be Loud. Be You.
Today, I hold a bachelor’s degree in exercise science with an emphasis in health-fitness instruction and I am a certified personal trainer as well as holding a certification in fitness nutrition through the International Sports Science Association.
Chloe and I have been friends since we were very young. We met each other on the bus to school and have been friends ever since. Chloe is one of those people I consider to be strong.
I was vegan for the first year at Grand Valley and I felt the best I had ever felt. I lost over 50 pounds in one year with this vegan lifestyle.
If you know me, then you know that I spend most of my time with my family. If you asked me what I did on the weekend the answer will most likely be that I hung out with my fam!
Today is my 27th birthday! I’m very thankful that I made it another year. It was a close one, but I did it
I really struggle with loving myself and my body. It’s something I have been working hard to change. Yoga helps me with that. I come to my mat every time to feel.
Being in a psychiatric hospital isn’t like what you see on tv. It’s much harder and exhausting than it looks.
I recently tried to commit suicide. The person I see in the mirror is not the person I used to know. I have stretch marks in places I have never had before and I don’t like what I see. I feel worthless and unwanted and I feel like I have no place is this world. My mental health is very unstable.
