Mental Health

It is in openly discussing our own mental health and the health of our family’s that encourages others going through struggles similar to share their own stories. This is not so they can commiserate or collectively whine, it’s to support one another in their own growth and health as a person. While we’re supporting and listening to those who have something they need to work through, we’re also helping ourselves to sort through our own experiences. What struggles are you wrestling with ? Remember, experiences are as individual as people. It’s also really important to talk to people who are educated in the area of therapy. Mom’s, sisters, friends, and brothers are nice but they may not be aware of what can be done to help you. Find a good therapist.

I am a Christian writer, aspiring to inspire, uplift, encourage and help those who are overwhelmed, overworked, over needed, or just at a difficult time in life. Being 64, married, divorced, now married to my high school sweetheart, having had 4 children, 10 grandchildren, and now 3 great grandchildren surely qualifies me to be able to discuss the difficulties of life even with a family without any bumps in the road. Just so you know, there've been plenty of bumps in the road. I've been down the wrong road, a muddy, deep rutted road, a dusty loooong road, and one that I've asked for plenty of guidance from those who felt they were qualified to help me. I'm a registered nurse with varied experiences including 15 years in hospice nursing, and still do some consulting and before that 30 yr + career many jobs to make ends meet. I'm also a sister, and a daughter to my deceased parents. My mother in law, who lives with us has "adopted" me as her daughter. Soon I will be embarking on an adventure of volunteering for hospice as well. While never wanting to do psychiatric nursing out of fear of the unknown, I found myself navigating my own lifelong depression and anxiety. My children also have varied experience with mental illness (a subject we all need to discuss openly). I have high hopes that this site can help and encourage you during your journeys as well.
