Good morning all, grab your coffee and Kindle because my new Ebook goes live today. I’m super excited to have one thing checked off my To-do list. I’m proud because it’s been so hard these last few weeks, but I can no longer continue to dwell on my past failures. As I stated a couple of days ago, life is to short and I’m not going to let this year pass me by. So I’m sharing some things I’ve learned in my therapy sessions and my coaching classes. I know that it takes life a while to come together, but these simple steps can help you get on the right track. So stay tuned….Ebook details soon.
For a long time now before writing this book, I have been wondering and researching ways to make my sex life better. Going through depression is hard enough on the brain, but having to come up with different ways to please your spouse is even harder. Should I play nurse tonight, naughty teacher, or the bad slutty girl? Now, I know all this may make you blush, but I was trying to spice up the bedroom for my hubby. Depression is just as hard on your partner/spouse as it is on you. So I have been reading and researching this topic, and here are some ways you can still keep it hot in the bedroom, while in a depressive stat.
Now I not going to tell you which ones I have actually tried, lol! Use your dirty little imaginations……….hmmmm!
- Try sending your spouse/partner sexy photos while he/she is at work when they least expect it. (I’m usually shy lately about my body, because of the weight gain)
- Reading books about how to spice up your sex life together (this puts them in the mood, just thinking about how naughty it sounds)
- Stop in that neighborhood sex store, and browse a bit (play around and ask what they would like to try)
- Facetime/Phone sex works every time (with my hubby away a lot, this one I might try, if not already! lol)
- Touch yourself in front of you spouse/partner (let them watch you please yourself)
- Last but least, talk to each other (tell them what you feel and how you feel, this will eventually turn into pillow talk then foreplay)
Now that I got you to thinking, stay tuned for my new e-book! Coming Soon
Ms. Fran (playing SEX doctor)
Late August, early September stay tuned…..😊
In honor of Mental Health Awareness Month, I will offer my ebook for .99 so you all can read and share with friends. I still believe that there are people out there who are afraid to speak out or tell their story. We can no longer let them suffer in silence, grab a copy of my ebook and get insight into what it’s like to suffer from depression and anxiety as a woman of color. Also a guide to understanding why and how African-Americans suffer, we have to continue the conversation.
Ok this is my fav article of the day, what does depression look like????? Hmm, maybe you all should also read my book, because I too ask this question!
BlackGirlDown “We Don’t Look Like We Hurt”
Depression is a disease that has become sort of an epidemic in recent years and is particularly prevalent in African-American men/women. In this book, you will be given an inside view of what it is like to struggle against this debilitating condition. It’s a true story, of how one woman has battled against depression, without the support she so badly needed from her family. The chapters not only follow her story, but go a long way to explaining depression as a condition, covering topics such as:
- What depression looks like
- A real-life story of diagnosis and ridicule
- Why depression rates are so high in African-American women
- Recognizing the symptoms
- Why mental health awareness is important
If you have ever suffered from this crippling affliction, or know of a friend or loved who has, then reading this book will help you to understand what it is that causes depression and how you can face it with hope for the future. Depression shouldn’t mean that you are stigmatized.
Get your copy of this book today and see how it can change the way you see yourself and others.
Hey Olivia, I just finished your book. I am so proud of you for speaking out. There is such shame associated with mental illness across the board. We need an AA for depression. Community/ group support. I think your blog is an excellent start. It is my hope that the healing that has begun will continue and bring you a richer life than you ever thought possible! Margaret
