After I introduced myself back in 2018, I fell off the radar. I never came back to my blog and since April 2019, I have been almost non-existent on Instagram.
Let me update you all on where I’ve been: at home, being socially distant, and extremely depressed. Back in February of this year, I hit my all-time lowest point mentally. It got so bad that I contemplated taking a leave of absence from work with my HR representative. I was likely going to lose my job if I didn’t take any action and I was on the verge of losing my relationship.
I finally called my doctor, set up a virtual appointment (Welcome to 2020, can I introduce you to COVID-19 and Police Reform?!), and we talked. She prescribed me anti-depressant and anti-anxiety medication. I’ve been on both since the end of March, and have things changed in my life. I’m back at work, feeling more optimistic, and the rage I had which negatively affected work and my relationship is almost non-existent.
In addition, I’m actually reading again, which feels wonderful. I haven’t been very active on Instagram yet, but now that I’m more settled after starting my medication, I’m looking to change that very soon. I’m also hoping to start posting my book reviews on here – I might as well since I pay annually for this page!
I’m currently reading four books, so I am tasking myself to post a book review within 2 days after finishing each one – wish me luck!
