Today is day 17 of being on Lexipro, a type of medicine for depression and anxiety. I’m getting impatient and I was warned medication is not a one time fix.. it takes trial and error. But I’m exhausted from feeling like this. The side effects from the medicine, nausea and fatigue, finally have stopped, thank goodness. I want to start documenting all this, I don’t know why but I feel I should. Mental health is such a taboo topic in the black community and I’ve never understood that.

this kid gets it.
