It’s been a LONG summer. From landing an internship at the University of North Carolina School of Medicine studying cancer and HIV to losing my grandmother (whom I was EXTREMELY close to) to cancer in the middle of the summer, to moving to Atlanta and starting grad school at Mercer University, I’ve been going nonstop.
The one thing that stayed consistent throughout the entire summer was my anxiety. It may have even gotten a little bit worse, actually. I’m still struggling with consistently taking my medication and also finding a new and trustworthy therapist, so my mood has literally been a rollercoaster. I’ve had really good days, but then anxiety comes to steal my joy like a thief in the night, and I wake up irritable and struggling to get out of bed.
I knew this would happen though. Moving to an all new state away from my parents and friends is like asking for a mental crisis to happen. However, I’ve been managing. I’ve gone out with sisters, hung out with friends, explored the city, and other things to help pass the tome and keep my mind off things that make me anxious.
It hasn’t been the best time, but I’m still very much at the top of my game and ready than ever to start school next week! There’ll be more on this subject as we get deeper into the semester. Until then, much love. 💕
