My name is Erica Lynn and here's why I blog.
It has now been weeks since the start of the protests. Since it began I have cried, felt helpless, been angry, cried some more, posted, donated, protested, cried some more, wanted to burn this whole bitch down and all of that is just the surface of the bout with depression that I was already fighting.… Continue reading Fight the good fight but don’t forget to protect your peace…
For the most part, I've been maintaining and doing alright during this quarantine. Like, I'm a homebody, so being home hasn't as much been the problem as it is being told I can't leave freely is.
