I battle with a panic disorder. Here’s what panic attacks are and how I cope.

On October 20th, 2020, I had the worst panic attack I’ve had in years. It was brought on by the overwhelming stress of my personal life, and an asthma attack. All of that mixed together was caused my chest to tighten, breathing to quicken, and extreme fear to swirl around in my mind.

I’ve battled anxiety and panic attacks since I was 16 years old. I started having them due to the stress and expectation that not only I but other people put on me. I had this huge fear of being a failure in life. …

Are you starting your first business this year but not sure how to price your services? or you’re well into your freelance journey but feel you’re not charging enough to sustain your lifestyle?

I’ve got you covered!

When I started my numerous businesses in the past, I wasn’t quite sure of how to price my services. I wanted to set rates that were affordable but also would help me pay my bills. It took some time and some mistakes for me to figure out what worked for not only me, but for my client(s)wallet as well.

I want to share…

Send them mental health check- in’s.

Since March 2020, the world we live in has changed tremendously for all of us.

The virus has changed the way we socialize and due things in our western civilization and because of that, we have to learn how to adapt in a totally different way. For some, adjusting to our new normal is easy. They can schedule their days out accordingly, which may include a couple of youtube or IGTV workouts along with a few zoom meetings with friends and family scattered throughout the week.

But for someone who has a mental illness, it can be much harder than…

The Friendship series #1

3 traits of a toxic friend.

Raise your hand if you’ve had the one friend that gave you that uneasy feeling in your gut. The one that if they called you took a few extra breaths before answering the phone or even ignored it altogether. Or worse, you knew at some point, you’d be the one hurt at the end of the phone call or hangout because they wanted to give you some “truthful” or “tough love” advice?

I cut ties with a friend of over 7 years because she exhibited these toxic characteristics. I had already lived a life filled with emotional and mental abuse…

Sometimes the best thing to do is rest.

At this moment in time, I feel angry, anxious, and a bit frustrated. I seriously thought that we’d be on the mend by June, but I personally think that was me putting too much faith in humanity. I know there are people making a strong effort to stop the spread of this horrible virus that’s taking the lives of so many by not going out if it’s not essential, nor hanging out with those not in their households and staying away from pubic places without masks. …

Having a Panic Disorder made me a better person:

Having a panic disorder gave me a sense of compassion and even more empathy towards other strong humans that struggle with…

My battle with stage 4 pneumonia and How I’m staying safe during Covid-19.

AUTHORS NOTE: I did not get covid-19. This is my story about the time a had to fight pneumonia for my life.

It all started on a Thursday in 2018. I was in college when I started to feel a strange wave of exhaustion. I would normally get extremely tired after I’d come home from school, and I would immediately take a nap as soon as I would get home. But this was different. I developed a terrible migraine and I couldn’t stop coughing. That night, my temperature climbed to 101.1 …

2. Write in small 5–10 minute intervals

NaNoWriMo is short for National Novel Writing Month. Every November, new and experienced writers alike try to write a 50,000-word novel in one month. I’ve tried (and failed) many times only because I personally needed more time to write my novels, but for others, they were able to knock out 50,000 words no problem.

There is a shorter version of the one in November called Camp NaNoWriMo that happens every July that personally helps kickstart my creativity and encourages me to write every day.

I’m not sure if I’m going to participate in Nano this year, however, for those of…
