I feel like I need to write this post before I go much further, as the unique way my brain works has a pretty intense effect on mindfulness on every level imaginable. Background:  I’ve struggled with a delicious combination of depression and anxiety for the majority of my adult life.  I didn’t always KNOW it, […]
