Wo(man) Down: I'm Going to Need Time to Refuel Soon.
Mannnn, I’ve been depressed for weeks and no one noticed. It took for Me to crash this weekend to realize I’m way overdue for some self-care. I keep putting things off because to Me, the projects I take on and the people I meet, seem more important than Myself.

I am a Conqueror. I Made it Through a Crazy August.
Reflecting back on August, I find Myself just feeling glad that it has ended. I know that sounds harsh considering I had a wonderful birthday celebration and financially, it was a lucrative month but I was so overwhelmed. Lately, I’ve found Myself working as hard as if I had a real job and had to catch Myself and remind Myself that I am disabled and I needed to slow down before I crashed.
