Living With Depression: My Experience

There are days when I feel almost normal. Good and bad things happen, I handle them appropriately. I get some chores done, I cook, I read. I smile, I laugh, I frown. Then there are the normal days – my normal, at least, with my depression.

The Best Place To Buy Perfume

I am so picky about my fragrances.  Considering I feel like my nose is broke most of the time since I can’t smell most things, I can smell way too much in regards to perfumes.  I hate when they are too sweet or too alcohol-y, and I dislike generic scents.  I used to wear Burberry… Continue reading The Best Place To Buy Perfume
