Melanie Crawford is a motivational comedian from Brantford, Ontario. She’s also a mom of four and a brain injury survivor. I first met Melanie when she performed at my friend’s variety show. After her set, I remember thinking, “Oh my god… We’re so much alike.” I remember relating so much to what she talked about. […]
I have high-functioning anxiety and mild depression, which means that it’s not as debilitating as the low-functioning type. Although, I do know how hard it can be, because I do have days once in a while when it is debilitating. So, this post is in no way discounting how hard it can be. Rather, it’s […]

Note: Content may be intense. It is also a rant, therefore not as uplifting as most of my other content. Posted for others to gain awareness of how certain situations are affected by anxiety and disability. Last Friday, I had a minor procedure done at the hospital, except that it wasn’t so minor for me.

Bell Let’s Day was a few weeks ago. I have mixed feelings about the day. While it’s good to raise awareness, it should be happening everyday. We do not need a day dedicated to talking about mental health. I used to like the day and used to participate, but then I learned that Bell is […]
