Well, things got realllllly real on Skinny Belle – The Podcast today 😐

Alright guys, I went there. I talked about the thing you are not supposed to talk about.

Today I recorded a podcast where I share my recent struggles with some seriously negative side effects of birth control, namely: depression and severe emotional volatility.



If you are a woman and you take birth control, chances are you have also experienced some negative side effects as well. Which is exactly why I wanted to share what I have been going through lately with a new birth control I’m taking. My hopes are that anyone reading this or listening to Skinny Belle – The Podcast can feel less alone, because feeling depressed can be an isolating experience. No matter what the cause.

I really got into it in this episode. I also accidentally cried. 😅 Definitely did not plan on doing that, but it’s kind of where I’m at right now with all this hormonal madness going on in my body.


There is really no advice in this podcast, it’s more just letting you guys know where I’m at. I haven’t solved the hormonal issue yet, but I am soon going home where I will see my family doctor and do just that.

For now…. 😬😬😬🔥😩 😤 😡

Hahahaha. Haha. Hahahahha. I’m insane. Really. Birth control is the worst. You know how it is. Listen to the podcast and you will get the gist of my situation.

Love you guys, and if you have ever experienced something like this (which like 99.999999% of women have) then slide on into my dms and let me know. There’s no reason we shouldn’t be allowed to talk about this, considering the fact that we all go through it. So ridic.

So let’s break the silence! Really really hope this podcast helps at least one person feel like they aren’t alone. That will make crying on the internet worth it. ❤️

Ok off to eat a massive bowl of pasta cuz I luv myself. And it’s the holidays. 🎄
