I’ve had my fair share of life’s ups and downs, my close friends and I started to call them interesting times instead of stressful times. They wanted to put a different slant on things and tried to take my mind off the issues that were getting me down. They were successful in doing that in the moment. We laughed a lot (Thank you girls, you know who you are). However, these moments were short-lived and so I knew I had to seek professional help.
