Hi! You may not be aware, but I suffer from an Anxiety disorder and PTSD. I’m…
Next up in the AWM spotlight is Tash Elzie, co-host of the @preezeedoesit podcast, photographer, stand-up comedienne AND super-mom. Read all about her carnival love story, how she enjoys carnival despite her challenges with sensory sensitivity, and her perspectives on battling the mental health stigma in the black community.
I honestly think that I can count on one hand how many black women I know that have NOT been a victim of child or adult sexual abuse/assault. This entry is a recount of my experiences with child sexual abuse and how Carnival has worked on healing fragmented pieces of my identity as a black woman.
In this blog, I discuss my experiences with plastic surgery (PS) and the serious life lessons learned along the way. I really dislike public figures that display their bodies but don’t want to admit they got work done. Honestly, I feel like if you’re in the eye of the public, you should come with a disclaimer you got work done. People look to you and damn near kill themselves to get the ass that you just won’t admit you paid for. Confession: My breasts were bought, I got some liposuction, but this ass is real. If you get squeamish, there is a photo below and this blog isn’t for you.
Taking a moment to reflect on my struggles with weight and how I came to accept my carnival body at any size.
Reflecting on how the reality of COVID-19 challenged my mental health and how sharing my feelings with others brought reassurance that I was not alone.
