Hello, my bucket list friends ! I recently got to go to the very cute Hello Kitty Cafe and I’m very excited to tell you all about it ! Here we go !
Hello Kitty Cafe
I had heard about the Hello Kitty Cafe before but I hadn’t had a chance to check it out. Well, I finally got my chance to go and it did not disappoint! It was probably the smallest cafe I have ever been to but it was for sure the cutest! There were some very cute treats to choose from. I chose the strawberry cake and the peach iced tea. The tea was very sweet but very delicious, it came in this very cute cup with a picture of Hello Kitty on it ! The strawberry cake was very cute and very tasty ! It had these cute Hello Kitty candies on it. I hope I get to go back sometimes and try some more treats ! If you get the chance I highly recommend checking this place out !

Hello, my bucket list friends . Last month I wrote quite a few posts about my TMS treatments for OCD . If you want to read them just look at my posts on this blog from February 2019. Anyways, I thought it would be a good idea to give an update on how I’m doing since treatment.Hold on tight and here we go !
Dear OCD, I’m in charge now
In my previous posts about TMS I wrote about some of the changes that occurred during treatments. OCD began to lose it’s grip on me and I was feeling more in control then ever before. Well, I’m happy to say that things have continued to improve. Before receiving the TMS treatments, OCD controlled a large part of my day. It was always controlling what I could and could not wear, what songs I could and couldn’t listen to, what order I had to put the blankets on my bed and many more things that impacted my everyday life. I felt anxiety that if I didn’t follow OCD’s orders bad things would happen . I never truly realized just how much of my time that OCD took from me. Now, things are very different I’m in charge now. I’m able to make my own everyday choices with feeling little to no anxiety. If OCD stars to give me orders I remind it that I’m in charge now and I do what I want to do. I was so used to following OCD’s orders that now sometimes I have to stop and ask myself what I want to do . I feel so free now! Now , don’t get me wrong life is not perfect and it never will be but I feel a lot better now that I’m free from OCD’s control. OCD still sneaks in with it’s unwanted thoughts from time to time but I can dismiss these thoughts faster and easier then ever before ! I’m so happy that I took part in the study at Stanford. Things are looking up.
