Mental health is an umbrella tag for all the posts regarding my mental health.

  • In 2012, I was diagnosed with depression and PTSD.

I don’t know what this year holds, so I’m not expecting anything major. What I do know is that I will conduct Janepedia differently—probably more so than ever before, like I’m a totally different person. Because I kind of am.

I forgot how to do a lot of things in the midst of my reality. Last year was a difficult time for me, and I’ve been keeping everything in lately like I’m expected to and pretending it’s no big deal. It’s not working.
