Breast Cancer Awareness.

Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by the blog. It’s a huge blessing to have you read and share your thoughts on my posts :). How has your October been? Mine has been ‘stress-FULL’. There has been so much school work- assignments, projects – to handle, now my exams are here! I start this week so wish me luck.

Before I share what’s new, here’s a shout out to everyone who read, liked, left comments and shared the post on depression. I’m thankful! I got so much positive feedback  (see Depression: How to overcome it. if you haven’t read it yet). However, that has gingered me to share more real life issues with you. I really hope this interests you and you enjoy what’s to come. So stick around, there’s more great stuff ahead!

Fast forward to why my blog’s pink lol. This October, I’m thinking PINK. October is Breast Cancer awareness month and to support this, I have decided to write on it and personalize my blog too. The major, major reason why I’m involved in this is because a few years ago, I had a breast cancer scare (thankfully, it wasn’t). That event made me realize many ladies like myself are either unaware or choose to overlook the issue of Breast Cancer. Stats, according to breastcancercare.org.uk say that, the lifetime risk of a woman developing breast cancer is 1 in 8. Breastcancer.org says too that the younger you are, the lower the risk and the older you are, the higher the risk of breast cancer. While breast cancer in some cases is hereditary, other causal factors are beyond our control. More

Depression: How to overcome it.

Hey there!

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I trust you’re doing great. Today’s blog post is quite sensitive and different from the ‘usual’ so…Enjoy!

Life is in phases and with each phase come challenges. Depression comes in when we allow these challenges overwhelm us. See, no challenge is insurmountable and mistakes are inevitable. Don’t beat yourself up over what’s happened. Life is short, I know that, but there’s still ample time to do what’s right!

A couple of weeks after my birthday, there were so many events that took place in my life all at once and it had me swimming in a pool of depression (thankful I didn’t drown in it) I’m not oblivious of the fact that people are going through tough times (this economy is more than enough hard time lol) however, there’s always a way out. A solution. A cure. A remedy. A therapy. Call it what you may.

So if you are depressed or you think that you are or about to, I’d be sharing symptoms then tips on how to come out of it (basically, what I did)

First, here are common symptoms that show you’re depressed (I feel like a Dr. right now so please call me Dr. Anie lol) More
