Cyster Talk: St. John's Wort


Ok, so let's talk about the Winter Blues, or how about the all year blues? My entire life I suffered from some sort of deep sadness and often times borderline depression. Yesterday was one of those depression days. I felt utterly low. My personal journal entry was appalling. The terminology I used, the words that were being expressed from my pen severely shocking.

We don't always have to have our shit together every single day, and that's ok. It's ok to have bad days, good days, or really low days. You also don't have to deal with it, or take an "ride it out" approach to your PCOS induced depression. As you read my blog you will notice that I am an advocate for all things natural. I am a firm believer that whatever ails you, nature has a cure for it. St. John's Wort is that cure for me.



I use everything in tincture form, especially for this, because I want to feel ease of my symptoms as soon as I can. I take a dropperful when I feel myself tipping over the edge, and this really mellows me out. I am grateful for it, or I would spiral out of control. In the past I would have depression episodes that lasted weeks, it was crippling to say the very least. I only need this once or twice during my monthly cycle, and only a dropperful. I'm curious, do you suffer from PCOS induced depression? What are some of the ways you cope? If you need someone to talk to, you can always reach out to me via email.

How To Reach A Long Term Goal:Write the goal downKeep doing what you need to do to achieve the goalConstantly look up things that motivate you towards your goalA little competition never hurts!Speak the goal into existenceExpect to fail, but plan to succeed I made it! Holy crap, Batman! I survived Mental Health Awareness Month, and I have no idea how I kept pushing myself. I skipped lunch today to save the extra coins. Yes, you read that right. A co-worker had a snarky remark about it, but guess what? IDGAF! I have goals in my mind, and I'm keeping my eye on the prize. Summer 2018 is mine, and I can only hope that things are finally falling into place. Besides, it's not like I didn't eat anything. I just didn't order out. I saved my money. Call me cheap.


I don't know what the rest of the Summer holds for me, but I know I'm going places and making progress. It has been slow going, and I have been tried, tempted, and failed so many times. I don't know where …

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?
