  • I Found a Lump

      First off I will admit that I have not been good about scheduling my yearly mammograms.  In fact, I have only had one done at the age of 48, well two now.  I did not regularly check my breasts via self examination.  Life gets busy and I just didn’t do it.  On May 11, […]

  • Importance of Self Care

      I really like to talk to anyone who talks to me about anything related to their mental health about how important self care is.  It is vitally important to us all no matter who we are and what we face.  I think it is especially important for those of us dealing with mental illnesses. […]

  • I Feel So Broken Inside

    I really hate my anxiety and depression.  I feel like I am always in battle.  I never know when each of these mental illnesses or both of them are going to want to take me down.  I feel so broken inside and like I am fighting a battle I just can’t win. Today started out […]

  • I Can’t Do This Anymore

    There are some words that I say to myself and even out loud all too often.  They are words that frighten me when I hear someone else say them.  They even frighten me a little when I realize I have said them myself.  They are the words “I can’t do this anymore”.  To some they […]

  • Take Some Time For The Little Things

    I carry my stress around with me all the time.  I am a busy mom, stepmom, wife, aunt, entrepreneur and more!  I battle my depression and anxiety daily.  I have a hard time just enjoying things sometimes.  I have trouble just sitting back relaxing and living.  The first week school was out and I had […]

  • My Struggle With Mental Illness As A Youth

    When did my depression and anxiety start is something I get asked quite often when someone finds out about my mental illness and gets close enough to me to want to ask.  I never know what to say because I never sought help until I was the age of 28 finding myself going through a […]
