This is Mel! I’ve created this as a way to allow myself to express my experiences, for others going through similar struggles, for those who haven’t  felt, first hand, what it is like to have a mental illness and lastly for myself.

In RL [real life] I am a nerdy Canadian who loves World of Warcraft, Dungeons and Dragons, crochet and cats.

In BL [brain life]  I am Generalized Anxiety with a Panic Disorder and Major Depressive Disorder.

* this is a blog dedicated to destigmatizing mental health issues and giving people an honest view in to anxiety, panic and depression – with that in mind, some of these posts will be unedited streams of consciousness, written during the lows of my day to day life and could be uncomfortable for some people to read.

I will be tagging any and all unedited streams with #TW *
