  • Password-protected my rant posts because I just can’t deal with all the negativity any longer. You know who you are, and you know what you did. Losing you is the best decision I made this year — good riddance. And to your partner who keeps stalking me, please get a life. You reek of insecurities. Spreading word about my blog just proves your incompetence. My last words to both of you? Stay out of my life.
  • Stayed positive (and unbelievably pretty, lol) amidst stress and issues.

#ATM: July 2016


This month was an emotional roller coaster ride I wanted to get out of badly. I was sick and depressed and suicidal – but I survived, thanks to those who sincerely care for me. I am lucky and blessed with people who are willing to share my pain.

To those who stuck around even when I was at my worst, thank you.


  • First half of July: I couldn’t eat for a week – I tried but I always ended up throwing up everything. I was so stressed and depressed that I spent that week just sleeping and going to work. I was diagnosed with ulcer and dehydration.

No matter how much make up I put on, I still looked pale and sick. I stopped putting on lipstick because I kept washing it off after throwing up.

  • Graduated from our 3-month company training. BEST WAVE EVER.
  • Random things that made me happy:
  • Someone sent me these photos while shopping around and I was surprised at how much weight I’ve lost within a month.
  • Cut my hair short to remove excess baggage. Lol.

  • Spent time with a handful of people close to my heart.
