Good morning bloggers, I’m back after some much needed rest! Had a little mental breakdown, but I’m up a ready to go again!!! This past week has been really rough and I officially realized that I need some major help!!! So on Monday I will be assigned a therapist and a nurse, they have also set me up for some group therapy!!! I can’t tell you how excited I am about seeking help!!! Nope I don’t feel ashame or sad, this was the best decision I have made in a while!! After this last “moment” I saw some really ignorant people who came out of the woodwork. People still believing that if I stop drinking so much, my depression will somehow go away. Or, if I stop thinking negatively it will all go away, people people it doesn’t work like that!!??? Seriously no one has a clue about what it’s like to be in this situation, this state of mind, this constant state of despair!! If you don’t know what to say…then don’t say shit, your not helping me with your stupidity!!! Well enough of that…I missed you all and wanted to thank you for the kind encouraging words!!! Like I said before you can’t keep a Diva down!!!! Chat soon….

Welcome to BlackGirlDown! My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of BlackGirlDown,com a blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Clinical Depression and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk with or share my feelings with, so I decided to share my experience with you..the world!!! There is nothing like feeling alone, helpless, and unworthy in a house full of people. I still suffer and fall short more days then I like, this is why I wanted to share my journey as I go through the recovery process. With BlackGirlDown I hope to share my life experiences,,the good and the bad! I want to bring awareness to the stigma that surrounds Mental Illness in the African American community, as black women we are more likely to suffer from depression and the least to get or ask for treatment. Please follow my journey, hoping some of my words can provide a real look inside the life of a depressed black woman. Let's Chat... View all posts by blackgirldown
