Real talk Tuesday

Hi. I'm Melissa and I have panic and anxiety disorder. 

Ok, so I know this is a fashion blog, but I figure if you guys like me enough to visit this silly little blog, you won't mind if I took a step back from fashion talk to talk about my issues with mental health stuff. 

Yesterday was a day filled with doctors, prescriptions, and a visit to my therapist -- A very fashion-free day. One thing we discussed is how important it is to connect with others, overly anxious people and the rest of the world (at least that's how I see it in my over-simplified way). Two weeks ago when I started this blog, I had no idea people from all corners of the globe would be reading my silly rantings and ravings on what I think is fun/funky/worth wearing. So to each and every one of my readers, THANK YOU! Your visits to my bloggidy blog make my heart turn big and sparkly. 

Back to fashion talk tomorrow! In the mean time, check out Zoe Saldana's new web-venture myfdb.com for an INSANE amount of fashion, photography, and editorials. 

As an aside, I believe that mental health is just as important as physical health and that everyone can benefit from some type of counseling or therapy (not just shop therapy!). Don't be afraid to venture out and talk to a professional. Ok, I'm stepping down off my soapbox. 

Kiss Kiss,
Melissa, The Shop Therapist
