A New Beginning
Well here it is. After some very prompt feedback as to whether there would be a benefit to me adding a blog to my online presence, here I am. That being said, setting up a blog is not as easy as I thought it would be. I anticipate getting in touch with some of my more technical friends to ensure this is as pretty and functional as it should be. So today, having exhausted my desire to be on my computer much longer with creating this forum, I thought I would share something I wrote a couple years after I was diagnosed. I guess a sort of intro to the content you may find here and a testament to the perseverance I have needed to pull on time and again. That being said, there have been many struggles, many battles lost and won, but in the end I am here. I am living very productively with purpose and dreams, something I feared I would never achieve. And what's best, I feel it is possible for so many more to wake up with the happiness and sense of purpose I have rediscovered through learning to live with my Anxiety/Panic and Depression. There is such an incredible life to be lived.

And lost again is where I find myself, I know I've been here before, I remember. I remember it down to the most intricate detail. I remember how the light of the sun seems a little less bright. How it makes the beauty of the sunset a little less captivating. I remember how I have the power to overlook everything good. But I seem to forget that is all my choice. I choose to wake up with a meaningless focus. I choose to focus on what is less, on all that is bad. I have the power to change. I know I need help again. But I am only just starting to learn it is my help that I need most.
