Who am I?
Well, that's a loaded question and one I'm consistently working to figure out. See, at the age of 42, it's a complete struggle for me to answer that question independently of the other roles in my life - wife, mother, auntie, daughter, friend.
Some may not see that as a bad thing, and honestly, it's great to know I have so many wonderful people in my life to support me. However, when it's just me sitting alone without them - I'm clueless and floundering.
I know I'm not alone. This is something many experience - especially if you're living with depression.
In 2019, I hit rock bottom and decided everyone in my life would be better without me. Thank the Lord the people in my life who intervened and literally saved my life.
As I've gotten stronger and thanks to an amazing team of doctors and therapists, I can speak out more and share my experiences. I do this to help others struggling and feel alone. I truly believe my life was saved for a reason, and I'm determined to make the most of it.
