I'm Speaking at Creative Mornings in Oakland!

UPDATE: Watch my speech below!

***Listen to my podcast about anxiety***

This Friday, Jan 26th I will be speaking about living with anxiety challenges and mental health for Creative Mornings. I HATE anxiety. Hate it. But my love for stopping mental health stigma by sharing my story is stronger. I'll also talk about facing our normal, everyday anxieties.

Registration opens this Monday at 11am. They go quick so make sure you sign up ASAP.

Too Angry to Write

I'm starting to get back into the groove again. I was so disappointed after the election, it was hard for me to write.  Actually I was more than disappointed. Anger, fear, anxiety, uncertainty were swarming through my body. Then I dived into the news and social media to keep tabs on what was going on. It actually made me more stressed out because some of the stuff I read were fake stories. Some were used to incite and feed on people's fear. And seeing how people were so fearful was hard to take in.

As I stated in my last post, hatred and injustice are nothing new in this country. I've never seen so much homelessness in Oakland. That's because gentrification is pushing people out of their homes. Child sex trafficking is another problem. Of course people are doing work to better relations between African Americans and the police. Lord knows the last thing we need is a federal government ran by white supremacists. They can call themselves "alt-right" all they want. Those people are white supremacists.

I hope we can come together and work together.
