About This Blog:

Over the years I have been diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety and depression. I refused any medications that I needed to take on a daily basis. Don’t get me wrong, medications can help, I just feel like the “magic pills” do a lot more harm than good. I mean, have you heard the lists of possible side affects that come on at the end of a prescription commercial? It’s CRAZY!

My thought is, “Why can’t I take control and change my situation to get a better outcome?” I’ve done it before with my food allergies.
