Ello loves! This week is Mental Health Awareness Week. If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that in 2018 I was prescribed Sertraline (an SSRI antidepressant) to treat anxiety and depression.

Now that I’ve been in a relationship for a Long Time, I can look back on some of the … More The boyfriend experience
