The truth is the last couple weeks I have been going through some debilitating anxiety.
I feel like it has to do with the fact that I have packed my schedule to the brim along with some family stuff ( which isn’t my story to tell at the moment but maybe sometime soon ). The combination of my calendar being overwhelming & the family stuff has just been a lot for some reason.
I go through seasons with anxiety.
It’s funny like that, you know.
One minute you feel completely normal & then a random ( Monday ) you will wake up…feeling ‘off.’
This morning particularly I noticed that the feeling was creeping in. The anxiousness has been hanging out, like I said, for the last couple months but today it just really set in.
Again: the combo of the jammed packed schedule with the family shit sent me over the edge.
This isn’t some woe is me, I feel so sorry for myself blog post.
It’s just about my personal experience with anxiety.
I’ve had it for as a long as remember; I don’t know what caused it. I mean, I’m an anxious person naturally & there have definitely been events in my life that have exasperated the feeling, but I don’t know the root of where it originated.

& BTW I’m not into pill popping ( like, thanks but no thanks! ). So sleep, herbs, healthy eating, & exercise ( running in …
When I came across Lindsi Lane on Instagram, I immediately found her energy attractive. Not only is she beautiful, but she has the kind of energy you want to follow.
She’s just one of those people who really is influential without even trying. She’s funny, relatable, beautiful, has amazing style & is a total hustler. I knew I wanted to collaborate with her immediately.
Getting a lot of questions on why the fuck I ate my placenta. What better way to explain the whole thing than with an in-depth blog post.
My birth story is coming, but in my meantime I just wanted to explain why you guys are seeing my placenta pills all over my Instagram Stories.
First off, you should know that I am not a doctor. Surprise surprise. I’m just sharing my experience & my story & why I decided to eat this ugly creature ( it really is super unfortunate looking ). PLEASE do your own research- there are two sides to every coin, but for me, the pros outweighed the cons.
Secondly, I had a doula who was amazing & changed the energy of the room during my delivery. She was incredible. We talked a lot about the benefits of eating my placenta, & she is the one who took …
