Shugaa Free? Who me?

I went to my Doctor recently. No, this time I did not take my daughter and she did not Snap Chat my lady bits. I went to her in order to discuss my weight, something that has plagued me my whole life. I wanted my Doctor to give me a quick fix. To shine a…

I am not my Mental Illness

With Bipolar, or any mental illness, comes a stigma that in order to be creative we have to be full of angst. We have to be manic or severely depressed in order to create our best work. I know because I feel it. I feel the pressure to deliver my best writing but look back…

This Year
