Anxiety is not rude. Depression is not selfish. Schizophrenia is not wrong. Eating disorders are not a choice. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder is not crazy. Mental illness isn’t self-centred, anymore than cancer is self-centred. It’s a medical illness.(via bewilderedapprehension)
Took a bit of a (much needed) mental vacation last night with the help of Dogfish Head’s Namaste.
The past few days have been rough. Super rough and I needed an escape! So, I put my earbuds in, tuned into the Indie station on Spotify, opened up my first Namaste and started writing. Honestly, I wasn’t really sure how I’d end up feeling but I just kept going. Kept writing, listening and drinking. Hah! Needless to say, 5 (delicious) beers later the tension, anxiety and stress were long gone.
It’s kind of funny really. I don’t like beer. Well, there are a few I like (that I can count on one hand) but none that I’ve found I could actually drink multiples of in one setting until we went on the tour last Wed. We sampled Namaste and I instantly loved it so Dustin went and got a six pack for me at the brewery. I had originally wanted to only drink two but that tasted like three and three tasted like four and then the last one happened so I only have one left. Boo!
But really. It was much needed and very much welcomed.
It’s a good thing too. I needed a clear head this week. I have a ton of stuff going on! Cassi and I are getting out twin/sister tattoos tomorrow, (Tuesday :: eep!) I’m going with yesyou-mae on Wed and she’s getting a tattoo, Thursday I have an eye drs appointment and I get new glasses (fave part about needing them) and then Friday I think I’m free. I’m still undecided on whether or not to keep my current frames. I love them so much but I love getting new ones too. GAH! Decisions!
Ok. This is long enough and my phone is lagging while I type. Ew.
The hubby won a VIP tour to our local brewery, Dogfish Head. Loved it! Especially since we got to see other things on this tour that you don’t see on the scheduled ones. Took a few friends along with us and headed to the brewpub afterwards for a yummy lunch!
