What to Expect
The audience would experience would a well outwardly appearing young lady without any noticeable dilemmas or issues but by the time my story is revealed the would find out that I am very similar to them or their circumstances or they know someone close to them just like me.
The thoughts that are pressing on my mind today is helping people with mental health disabilities. I am self-encouraged and self-inspired because I have come a long way in my journey. In September of 2004, I was diagnosed with Major depression and at that time in my life, I was parenting a nine-month-old boy. He was my greatest sense of support too. I remember crying profusely and wallowing in a deep amount of self-pity. Meanwhile my son would wrap his arms around my neck to console me in my time of weakness. My recovery journey had primarily consisted of a daily routine of feeling negatives about myself. I was crippled with self-doubt, low confidence, and low self-esteem. I remember all too often shaking my fist at the heavens and saying why me? Fortunately, I can say today why not me and I was not forsaken. In 2010 I decided to share my story to promote Mental Health Awareness and the necessary abandonment of Stigmatization through the impact of my words by defining my experience today with Mental Wellness.
