    I Decide My Vibe

    Honestly not feeling well today, BUT the good news is I get to choose to rest if I need to! In the past I let people guilt trip me into doing things I didn’t feel like doing, I was giving my power away. Now, I Decide My Vibe! #ChronicMigraines #Migraines #ChronicPain #Pain #ADHD #OccipitalNeuralgia #Anxiety #Depression #OnedayAtaTime #vibes #ThisIsMyBrave

    My Whole Heart In One Photo

    Theses beautiful people are my precious amazing children. My reasons for fighting, surviving, courage, strength and hope. They have no idea how they’ve changed me over the years. How they’ve inspired me to do better and be better. They are the single most important influences in my life. Individually they are each tenacious, brilliant, funny and compassionate. Together they are a force to be reckoned with against the world. My greatest sources of joy, encouragement, motivation and kindness. My greatest loves in life call me “Mom”. I love you most. #MightyMoms #Inspiration #Love #courage #ThisIsMyBrave

    Going back to College


    I haven’t been in college for 12 years. After unmedicated social anxiety disorder, attention deficit disorder and drug addiction destroyed my academic life, I never thought I would get the chance to achieve my dream of being a college graduate. As I stand here I know that not all days will be good days but today is one of those rare moments where all is right in the world and I am exactly where I need to be.

    I am exactly who I am meant to be.


    Now, Keep Going #ThisIsMyBrave #nostigmas #livingstigmafree

    On Monday, October 08, 2018, I participated in the This is My Brave event in Boise. I suffer from biloplar1, PTSD, OCD anxiety, and hypersomnia. I stood up in front of a crowd of over 100 people, including my husband and former co-workers. I told my story of the depths mental illness sunk me to, so far down I tried electroconvulsive therapy ( #ECT). I discussed the risks, the damages, and would I do it over again. I felt a sense of redemption. Others told me it was powerful. I hope to continue telling my story to fight the stigma mental illness, hospitalization, and treatments that exist.
