I didn’t get to post this on time because I wanted to really think about how to properly express myself.

Let me share a something personal. I suffered from PTSD and went through depression for a year upon returning to NYC from being deployed in a difficult duty station. 
Going through depression is not the same as being sad. It is a profound sadness that I could actually feel in my bones. I always felt that getting out of bed each morning and being fully functional and deliver at work, while fulfill my responsibilities at home and in my personal life were nothing short of miraculous. 
Being an introvert and the type of person who solves her problems on her own only made me go deeper into myself. True, having friends who have the warmest and biggest hearts who would be there for me and listen and not judge. But depression is something you can’t really explain to anyone. I couldn’t understand what was going on within me as I had no desire to be sociable - preferring to sleep the whole day if I could as it was only in my state of sleep where I could escape the sadness and seemingly infinite darkness. It even came to a point when, crossing the street to my workplace, the thought of walking in front of an incoming bus to end it all crossed my mind. So unexpected that I was even surprised for that thought to have occurred.

Sleep and books are where I took comfort and refuge from the inexplicable pain. Books transported me to different worlds, made me forget the pain and escape the profound sadness and darkness that enveloped me. “Emergency Sex and Other Desperate Measures”, a memoir of three young people who joined the UN in Cambodia with a dream of making the world a better place, was my catharsis. It made my cry and laugh and relive my experience while in deployment and created the peace that I was looking for for a year.

My catharsis may not be the same as others who may have experienced or are still experiencing depression. But I encourage you to talk to trusted friends and loved ones. Seek help from a from a professional. I am also here if you need someone to talk to. Or to just listen. To have someone who understands and will not pass judgment. [17/365]

Wat een leuke dag! Feest omdat mijn lief vandaag jarig is, dat wordt gevierd! Maar ook ons huis wordt in het zonnetje gezet door de fotograaf van de @telegraaf.nl. zaterdag 9 februari komen er maar liefst 4 pagina's beeld en tekst in de bijlage. Het interview is afgenomen door @berbergovaarswoonproducties en dan kan het niet anders zijn dat het weer heerlijk lezen is. Maar wanneer het over jezelf gaat is dat toch wel even spannend.

This time last week I was loving life, sipping Prosecco in the hot tub, listening to the birds and the rustle of the leaves in the forest! We work so hard and life is so busy, it’s important to have a break, time away from the stress of daily life! I’m not gunna lie, this mini break felt like the best thing ever, but I’ve struggled since I got home! I felt sad to leave, sad to go back to work and exhausted too! I know I put too much pressure on myself to keep going all the time, it’s hard to fit in work, exercise, housework, sleep, eating, spending time with every man and their dog that wants to see you and just finding some down time for yourself! I’ve been working hard on not saying yes to everything and everyone, it’s a working progress, but I want to be able to feel less stressed at what needs to be done, and instead just enjoy the moment and appreciate what I do have time to do! So today I stayed in bed until ten, because that felt right, enjoyed a nice breakfast, cleaned the house and did some chores, managed a forty minute yoga session with @adrienelouise 🧘🏽‍♀️ and ate a fabulous lunch too! So I’m feeling quite accomplished and satisfied! Even if a little part of me still wishes I was at @leycroftvalley 😅 Where shall I go next @hoseasons ?! #hottub #lodge #prosecco #relaxing #leycroftvalley #hoseasons #minibreak #selfcare #yoga #forest #lifeisgood #foodie #foodblogger #blogger #ukblogger #perranporth #cornwall #coeliacdisease #glutenfreefoodie #glutenfree #lookafteryou #happy #holiday #travel

Not sure why I’m so nostalgic today as I prepare to take boards to become a #CRNA. Although becoming a CRNA has been my lifelong goal this journey has been so amazing! I was such in a rush to get where I am today that I didn’t always appreciate great moments in time. Just had to stop and smell the roses 🌹 today! #lifeisgood #srnalife #anesthesia #crnaschool #nurseanesthetist #icu #rnlife #ornurse #armyvet #surgicaltech ☺️👩🏾‍⚕️🌎

I got to visit Vinny after quite some time! We even got to go for a nice walk in his neighborhood. Vinny was born blind due to over breeding ... the people whose purpose was to make money off of his mama, decided to put him to sleep since he was blind and of no use to them... Back in Iran, many people are willing to pay thousands of dollars for full breed dogs such as huskies while there are thousands of homeless mixed breeds. It is also very rare for a special needs dog to find a forever family. Lucky for Vinny, animal lovers came to his rescue and he ended up coming here to the US back in 2015 and his foster family joined our “foster failure” club soon after he arrived 😍 #adoptdontshop #blindhusky #iraniandogs #oneplanetrescue #oneplanet #onegoal #oneplanetrescue #lifeisgood #fosterfail

As universidades nos EUA fornecem aos seus alunos diversos planos de refeições, os famosos meal plans, que variam entre preços e quantidade de refeições. Junto com o meal plan, vem uma certa quantia de Dinning Dollars para serem usados nos restaurantes dentro do campus, por exemplo: Starbucks, Pollo Tropical, Subway e outros. 
A minha universidade tem um aplicativo onde você pode fazer um tracking de quanto está gastando e quanto ainda tem na sua conta.
Então, para variar um pouco na alimentação, use e abuse dos Dinning Dollars 💵
